Supporting Same Sex Marriage

Marriage-Equality-Logo-100x100-TransparentCelebrants displaying this logo have a policy of treating the LGBTI ( lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or intersex) community with dignity and respect. They support the Marriage Equality movement and same sex marriage. The logo, combines easily recognised symbols, wedding rings, rainbow colours, and the equal sign. It was initiated and designed specifically for celebrants by Judy Aulich and Charles Foley, so that members of the LGBTI community, and also those who support marriage equality, can easily find celebrants who will welcome their business.

By displaying this logo I show my support for marriage equality and an end to discrimination for same sex couples. I agree to a policy of treating all LGBTI couples with respect and dignity.  I will welcome their business and that of their friends and families. Read more here…

Ceremony Kit:

When you appoint me as your celebrant I will supply you with a ceremony booklet which you and your fiancé can read at your own leisure.
The kit includes ceremony options and will assist me in creating the personalized wording that will make your day memorable. I can also write your ceremony completely tailored to your needs.

Things to consider when creating a meaningful ceremony:

Tell your personal story. Share the story of how you met and why you fell in love. What were the first words you said to each other? Where was your first date? How did the proposal happen? What actions of the other say I love you? What does your partner do that always makes you laugh? Your celebrant can include these words into your introduction or elsewhere in the ceremony.
Include your family and friends.
Your day can be made more memorable by including family or friends to read poetry or verse.
Honor the presenter.
If one or both of you will be presented in marriage, take this time to reflect on what this relationship means to you. Have your celebrant include words of homage.

”We would like to say thank you, we were so happy with all you did for our special day, you truly were the perfect person, your help invaluable. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful service you conducted on our wedding day and we have no hesitation recommending you. Thank you for such a wonderful day.”
