Ceremonies

Cairns Weddings:

Over the last ten years I have been honoured to be able to marry many couples in Far North Queensland.  They have come from all States of Australia and from many countries in the world, as well as those lucky enough to live here. They all have one thing in common – they choose to make their wedding vows in Tropical North Queensland – our Paradise. A Cairns Wedding is like no other, and you will remember your wedding day forever surrounded by our beautiful scenery – from the Great Barrier Reef to the Rainforest.

“Thank you so much for all you did for us on our Wedding Day; everything went beautifully. 

Thank you for being a part of our special day. Hope you get to do many more ceremonies on that beautiful beach and make couples as happy as we are.”

Renewal of Wedding Vows:

What better way to celebrate your love than to Renew your Wedding Vows. You can choose to be surrounded by your children or even your grandchildren and you can celebrate from your  1st to your 50th Anniversary, and beyond. I tailor your ceremony to suit your personalities – whether it is to be a black tie event or just the two of you.

“We would like to thank you for such a lovely, intimate ceremony. It was exactly how we imagined it, just perfect in every way. Also thanks for the tissues!”

Commitment Ceremonies:

I have performed Commitment Ceremonies for same sex couples in many different locations in the Cairns area. This is not a legal ceremony but a meaningful expression of love and commitment. My ceremonies are warm and caring and I will help you to put together something special – for you and your partner.

“We both want to say a great big thank you for making our special day so memorable. It was everything that we could have wanted – beautiful surroundings, easy laid back atmosphere and lovely people to share the moment with. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.”

Naming Ceremonies:

A Name Giving Ceremony symbolises an important event- the birth of your child and the choosing of a special name. A Naming can be for a baby or small child and you can even have a ceremony for two or three children together. This is not a legal ceremony but can be as fulfilling and memorable for everybody concerned.

“It was very important to us to have a naming ceremony for our Ruby and we thankyou so much for making that day so symbolic for us ”

Memorial and Funeral Services:

I have been privileged to be a Funeral Celebrant for many years and my aim is always to provide a non religious Celebration of Life and to express beliefs and ideals in a warm and caring way. My ceremonies are professional, personal and meaningful and a fitting expression of respect and farewell. I incorporate your music as well as favourite readings and poems, to make each ceremony an individually tailed Celebration of Life – whether it is a Cremation, a Burial, a Memorial Service or the Scattering of Ashes.

“Thank you so much for a wonderful moving ceremony. There has been a lot of feedback remarking how good it was”
