Other Ceremonies

Vow Renewals

Many couples who have long standing happy marriages often wish to celebrate by renewing their vows in the presence of their family and friends.  A renewal of vows ceremony allows couples to reflect on the happy times they have spent together and the memorable milestones and achievements.

It allows them to honour the love they have shared and re-dedicate themselves to each other with the ongoing support of family and friends. Marriages which have taken place overseas can also be celebrated in this way.

Celebrate the arrival of your new baby with a special name giving ceremony.  This ceremony is designed to be a formal welcome and introduction of your baby into your family and community.  It can acknowledge the role of godparents, grandparents, siblings and provide a cultural expression of the joy of a new birth and acceptance through celebration. 

The ceremony is a fulfilling and meaningful experience for all concerned and an occasion to deepen family relationships.

Commitment Ceremonies

Currently the law in Australia does not permit marriage between same sex couples.  Commitment ceremonies offer a way of recognising the importance of the relationship and the commitment of a couple to each other.  The ceremony is a joyous occasion and can be individually created to reflect the lifestyle, beliefs and wishes of the couple and include meaningful vows and exchange of rings according to the couples’ wishes.
