I am fortunate to have one of the happiest and most rewarding professions - working with couples and families to create ceremonies that fulfil their ideals, and allow them to express their love as they wish, at a significant time in their relationship.
My work takes me all over Sydney, the Central Coast and NSW Southern Highlands.
There comes a special time when a couple wish to seal their love in marriage, an open commitment in front of family and friends, with legal significance in Australia.
Parents often choose a civil naming ceremony to celebrate with family and friends. It is an opportunity to formally welcome a 'significant other' or mentor in the child's life.
There comes a special time when same-sex couples wish to seal their love in a union ceremony, an open commitment that expresses their love in front of family and friends.
When a couple decide to make a renewed statement of their love it is a poignant ceremony conducted at a significant time in their relationship.
We wanted an intimate ceremony in the garden - and it was perfect! It was such a happy wedding, simple and expressive! Pauline, our Celebrant, was wonderful in bringing it all together so easily. It meant a lot that she was able to warmly include Jude's young daughter."Lionel and Jude, Lane Cove, August 2016
Sally and I had the wonderful simple ceremony we wanted for our love commitment at home - your warmth just sealed the magic. Thank you Pauline.Barbara and Sally
It meant so much that you wanted to spend time listening to our thoughts about Harry's Naming Day so it was really personal. You gave us the confidence to carry it through, too, and we couldn't be more grateful that you did! It was fun, really just such a good day! Harry had a good laugh too! Thanks so much, Pauline!Sue and David, Harry's proud Mum and Dad
We couldn't imagine having any other wedding celebrant than Pauline. She is warm, patient and caring. Pauline was very accomodating, communicative and committed to helping us stay on track with our ceremony plans. She explained the legal process, ceremony options and guided us in developing our personalised ceremony and vows. Pauline is the calm, gentle and focussed friend we all need when planning for the happiest day of our lives.Margaret and Richard were married on a gorgeous day last summer, on the magnificent coastal headland at Clovelly, Sydney
Your celebration may be formal, informal or completely casual. It may be at your home, a beach, a restaurant, on a boat, in a park, a marquee, courtyard or vineyard... delighfully intimate, or on a grander scale.
You may wish to use traditional words, adapt them to suit your individual and ceremony style, or create some fresh expressions for your values and love.
Symbols, too, are often chosen to enhance the magic and focus of every kind of occasion. I have many suggestions - including 'the warming of the rings', 'blending sand', a union in wine or roses, or lovely candle ceremonies.
However you wish to make your celebration special ... I look forward to being your celebrant!
Your ceremony, created with you, to mirror your love and vision ...
