Commitment Ceremonies

Times have changed. Having a 'Wedding Day' with all the trappings and paraphernalia is not for everyone. If you just want a simple ceremony to state your commitment to each other, we'll create a unique occasion, together.

The occasion can be as private and discreet as you like (in a special place which speaks to you both), or we can make it a public celebration with friends and family along for the ride.

We will craft a series of activities together which gives you as much or as little as you feel comfortable with, including vows, readings and music, if you would like to include that.

Although a Commitment Ceremony is not a marriage in the legal sense, we can conduct a similar sequence of events and at the end, I'll provide you with a Certificate of Commitment.

With the law as it currently stands in Australia, for a same sex couple here in New South Wales, a Commitment Ceremony is ideal for when you want to say: "We are as one" on an loving, emotional level.

So I'll commit to doing the paperwork if you'll commit to each other. What could be simpler?

  • Raef and I would just like to extend a huge THANK YOU for the beautiful ceremony you performed for our wedding, exactly one month ago today! Not only did you help us create the perfect vows, but you also did such a wonderful job as settling our guests and making sure everything ran smoothly. I don’t think the day would have been of what it was without your help and guidance throughout the whole process. Also a big thank you for taking care of all the legal stuff too. The ceremony was everything we had hoped for (and more) and was the perfect way to initiate our married life – your ideas folder and your openness to our own ideas ensured the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Jessica and Raef.
