Congratulations on your decision to marry. Many couples feel unprepared when it comes to choosing a celebrant. You are investing heavily in this very important day so you need a celebrant with whom you quickly feel a strong rapport, somebody you can totally trust. They need to be a good listener, and willing to work closely with you to create a personalised, 'bespoke' ceremony. I believe that warmth and a sense of humour (without being 'cheesy') are great attributes in a celebrant as it is your celebrant who will set the tone for your ceremony, and therefore your entire wedding day.
Of course there are other signs to look for, so you really know you are onto the RIGHT celebrant for you. They will respond quickly to your enquiry, and you should hear their passion for love and marriage shine through. They will know the 'ins and outs' what is required legally, and what is possible. How well do they speak and sell themselves, and can they provide testimonials? How experienced are they at handling 'curve balls', and anticipating and managing challenges?
To ensure a good match, and so you can proceed with total confidence, I will be happy to have an initial conversation or meeting before you feel you have to 'commit'.
Tasmania has no Registry Office. For very small weddings, I offer a a beautifully appointed marriage room with an open fire, bay window, chandelier and antique furniture (house is 'Circa 1890) OR weather permitting, my private formal garden. Also feel free to check out my Elope to Tasmania factsheet.
Passionate about the importance of marriage I know that happiness in life is VERY MUCH about being in a significant and lasting relationship, This includes couples in same sex relationships. In my view, 'love is love' and I both welcome enquiries by same sex couples, and look forward to marriage equality in Australia.
