Ceremonies

“Legals Only” 

Ceremony

  • There are many reasons that couples need a “Legals Only” ceremony, like planning to have an overseas wedding one day, but wish to legally married in Australia. OR you are having a religious and cultural wedding ceremony, that is not legally recognised in Australia. OR the expense of a wedding is unaffordable at the moment, and it’s more important to be legally married, sooner rather than later. 
  • Once all the legal paperwork is complete, the Legals Only Ceremony is really simple and quick. I need to say some legally required words; then you both need to say a few legally required words; paperwork and certificates are signed and thats it!!! You are married!!  You will need 2 witnesses over 18 years of age,  (I can provide witnesses if need be) and it can be done anywhere… in your home, in your car, in a restaurant, by the beach or anywhere you like!
  • This ceremony has a “Ready Made” non personalised. (5 min). 

  • All legal paperwork is taken care of, including online marriage registration.

  •  Travel within 30km radius of my Gymea Bay office. (Extra travel may apply)

“Super Sweet” 

Package.

 
  • This package is a “Ready Made”  non-personalised ceremony, that is a little longer and more intimate than the “Legals Only” ceremony.
  • It is a gorgeous ceremony and even though this  “Super Sweet” Ceremony is Ready-Made, I will  encourage you to add your own personal touches to the ceremony by  choose one of my vows or write your own personal vows.  You will have the use of my “Ceremony Pack” with loads of samples of vows, including my “Tips and Tricks” on how to write your personal vows…if thats your thing!

  • I’m yours for the day!!!! Well…for the ceremony part, that is. I rarely book more than one ceremony a day. So if, on your wedding day, you need to delay or bring  forward the the ceremony start time, or even have a last minute location change…no stress! I’m there for you. And you have unlimited contact with me, from start to finish.

Naming Days

Renewing your Vows 

  • Naming Days are a great to celebrate your new addition and to officially have them welcomed into the world, by your family and friends. Naming Days can be done on the child’s birthday or any time you like. A fun celebration for everyone connected to the new comer.
  • Renew your vows on a special anniversary or have the second “wedding” (no legal paperwork or requirements) with family and friends, that couldn’t make it to your destination wedding. 

Funerals

  • When the time has come to plan your loved ones farewell, Catherine is well equiped with compassion and empathy, to create a meaningful ceremony that will capture and honour your loved ones life, with dignity and respect.
  • Catherine has innate communication and listening skills, knowing the right questions to ask while at the same time, understanding and respecting that it is a difficult time for you. She is able to guide you through, step by step, with everything that is required for the service, and can assist you with advise for the eulogies and other elements of the service.

Your Sydney Celebrant.

Being a celebrant is more than a job for me. It is something that fills my soul in a way I never imagined. I have been marrying couples for over 12 years and there is nothing more wonderful than working with a couple to plan their ceremony, and then see their joyful and excited faces on their wedding day. That is the best!!!!
