What does a marriage celebrant do?
From an initial meeting with a couple to discuss their ideas for a ceremony, advice on arranging the legalities, helping write wedding vows, suggesting music and readings, right through to ensuring everything and everyone is in place for the big day; a marriage celebrant can co-ordinate your ceremony from start to finish – and everything in between.

Celebrating Christmas After Losing a Loved One
While the festive season is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, for those who’ve recently bereaved – and even those mourning years of loss - holidays can simply compound the grief felt over losing a loved one.

Shayne Elliott, National Executive
I’ve been a wedding celebrant for 5 years and enjoy the planning with every couple and bringing the wedding together on the day. It’s so rewarding when there are happy tears and smiles/laughs all round.
