SAME SEX WEDDINGS (COMMITTEMENT CEREMONY)
Although same sex marriages are not Legal in Australia, many couples want to make a personal commitment to express their love for each other. Couples will have a Commitment Ceremony.
As a Civil Celebrant I can help you create a ceremony that will be meaningful to you and to reflect your personalities with the perfect words to express your feelings.
A Commitment Ceremony can be a time when couples publicly declare their partnership and love for each other before family and friends in a dignified manner. Although similar to a Wedding ceremony, it has only a few subtle changes. The important part of the Ceremony are the vows that you make to each other, the love and honesty of the “I DO’S” and the promises you intend to live and love by.
Love is perhaps the greatest gift that the world has given and it is our inherent nature and our sole true purpose in life to love one another. When two people are in love, they make a commitment to each other to love, support and share their lives together. This is a promise of the heart and soul.
I can help couples who want to commitment themselves in sharing their lives together.
Whether you decide to have a private ceremony with only a few people present or have a large ceremony with family and friends, I can help you create the ceremony that is important to you.
The key elements to the ceremony will be:
- Exchange of rings
This ceremony is a binding ceremony of a couples public affirmation to their commitment to each other.
