COMMITMENT CEREMONIES

– IN THE STUNNING BLUE MOUNTAINS

 

Same sex, pagan, lesbian and gay weddings for perfect alternate celebration

While marriage may be the final step in a couple’s love for each other, many people either cannot legally marry, or choose alternative options that reflect their religious or non-religious views. Not only do I perform traditional wedding services, but also unique options such as same sex commitment ceremonies, pagan weddings, vow renewals and naming rituals in the Blue Mountains and beyond.

Unique Commitment Ceremonies

These are ideal for couples not wanting to legally be married or for same sex, lesbian and gay couples who as yet are unable to be legally married. A Commitment Ceremony carries the same emotion, intent and weight of a wedding without being legally registered. As with a wedding service, there are numerous readings and rituals to choose from. A most beautiful ceremony can be created for your special day.

Cost: $460 (cost may differ slightly depending on ceremony choices)

Restate Your Love with Vow Renewal

What better way to rededicate yourselves to each other than with a public vow renewal ceremony? The Blue Mountains makes a striking location for vow renewal ceremonies. During this event you can remember why you first fell in love, recite words of commitment and create another special memory for family and friends. It is also a good excuse for a party!

Cost: $370 (cost may differ slightly depending on ceremony choices)

These rituals can include, circle casting, calling in of the four quarters (water, air, fire and earth), hand fasting, Goddess rituals, stone rites, jumping the broom, ale and bread, drumming and chanting.

Welcome a New Member with a Naming Ceremony

Welcoming a new member of the family into the world is an important & joyous occasion. A Naming Ceremony can deepen family relationships & establish a loving circle of care for the child.
The Naming ritual serves to remind all concerned of the great responsibility involved in raising a child and to recognise and appoint those who will have an important role in the child’s life. The service can incorporate parents, grandparents, godparents (guardians) and siblings.

There are many rituals and readings to choose from – Candle Services, Wishes for the Child, Bubbles, Balloon Release (biodegradable), Pagan. Please contact me to discuss your special day.
