Your wedding day is a unique moment in time where you express your love for each other with the most important people in your life, your family and friends. This day is significant to you both and gives you the opportunity to have a personal Ceremony that will live in your memories forever. You may have some cultural components that you would like to include or maybe something symbolic such as the lighting of a Unity Candle which signifies your two families blending together. I will present your Ceremony with the utmost sensitivity to the significance of the occasion. Where appropriate I will use a P.A. system so that everyone can hear all the words being said and the music you have chosen, during the Ceremony. Whatever your needs we will discuss them when we meet. Please call me, obligation free, to discuss your very important day.
"This is the best Ceremony I have been to and I am so lucky it was mine! Everyone commented on how well organised everything was on the day. You provided us with so many ideas which made it easy to choose a Ceremony that reflected our personalities. We felt completely confident in having you as our Celebrant and you are so easy to talk to. Thank you so much!"

Your Wedding Day is the day you choose to make a deeper commitment to each other in a legal and binding marriage. It is your way of telling all your family and friends that your experience together has been so good that you want it to continue for the rest of your lives. It would be my privilege to be part of your special day.
Many couples who are committed to each other but don’t want to marry, prefer this option which has the same intent, to share your life together. A Commitment Ceremony signifies your love for each other and your desire to share your life together in partnership. It represents your devotion to each other as lifetime partners and can play an integral role in cementing your relationship. I will tailor the Ceremony to your needs and supply you with many choices of readings and verses that you may like to include. Some of these could be to include a ‘promise’ or ‘vow’ to each other as well as exchanging rings. It is important that the Ceremony reflects your personalities and wishes. The Ceremony can take place in the setting of your choice with family and friends and you will be presented with a Certificate to mark the occasion. I would love to meet you both to discuss your needs with no obligation to book.
"Thank you so much for making this day perfect! Your guidance was invaluable and we loved the idea of the ‘ring warming’! Everyone commented on what a nice personal touch that was and how relaxed we both looked. We hope we will have a long association with you as our family celebrant."

A renewal of your Marriage Vows is a wonderful way to celebrate a milestone anniversary, such as a 10th or 20th anniversary etc. It is a declaration to each other affirming the love and support that you have both experienced together. Some couples like to repeat the vows they said on their wedding day and others like to completely re-write their vows, including their feelings within the relationship as it is now, in the present day. Special readings within the Ceremony from family or friends can be included and this adds a lovely personal touch. You will also be presented with a certificate to mark the occasion.
Thank you, Regina! You made our 40th anniversary day very special! We felt so comfortable planning our ‘Vow Renewal’ Ceremony with you and everything went perfectly! From the time you arrived, you helped to settle our nerves and make this into a day we will remember forever! With an occasion so important to us, it made all the difference to know that we had someone who presented from the heart!

A ‘Name Giving’ Ceremony is a perfect way to welcome a baby or child into the family and community. It signifies your love for your child and your hopes and dreams for their future. A nice inclusion to the Ceremony is the origin and meaning of the name itself and I will research this for you. Grandparents and Godparents can have a special part in the Ceremony with readings especially from them. All the participants in the Ceremony will receive a commemorative certificate.
"Regina took care of every detail beautifully, taking all the stress out of the day for us. Her suggestions were perfectly suited for our daughter’s Naming Day. The choices we were given for the whole ceremony made it a very personal occasion. We loved the symbolic planting of a tree and the way that Regina included our other daughter in the Ceremony. We hope that Regina will be part of all our special family occasions."
