Renewal Ceremonies

Commitment or Renewal of Vows Ceremony

Congratulations upon deciding to formally and publicly commit to one another. It will be my honour and privilege to work with you both to make this a very special and memorable day.

Lorne is a stunning location for a ceremony, but I am also prepared to go to Paris.

You tell me, I make it happen.

I will work with you to craft such a celebration.

Lorne’s natural beauty provides many possibilities for you to consider. My local contacts will make your wishes a reality.

After your initial contact with me we will arrange our first face-to-face meeting where we will discuss your ceremony requirements, this meeting is free of charge.

At this meeting I will explore with you and your partner your ideas of how to create your personal story, included will be your preferences for:

  • Your story
  • Venue/location/date
  • Family involvement
  • Vows
  • Music
  • Readings/poetry
  • Colours
  • Flowers
  • Photography/videos

 

A commitment ceremony or renewal of vows can celebrate milestones in a union. The ceremony can publicly affirm your love and commitment. It may be a watershed for further life adventures. I am available to create such a ceremony.

I can craft a ceremony that is low-key or traditional. We can have fun or be formal. I can journey to exotic places or celebrate in the surrounds of beautiful Lorne.

Once you make your decision and if I am your celebrant of choice the following occurs:

  • You pay a non-refundable deposit which is fifty percent of the agreed fee.
  • We organise a second face-to-face meeting.

At our second meeting we will refine the previously discussed elements of your ceremony. We will explore sample services and content options. At this meeting we will refine your personal story. I will always be available to assist you both to meet any changes or additions that you wish.

 

Rehearsal

A rehearsal should be held about a week before the ceremony, ideally this should be arranged at the venue or site, with the entire ceremony party. I will provide a PA system and a registry table and chairs.

 

Ceremony

I will be at the venue (Paris) at least one hour prior to the start of the ceremony to ensure that all is in order, and to address any last minute issues.  At the end of the ceremony, I will present to you a folder containing a certificate that honors your union.
