Wedding Ceremony


A wedding ceremony takes careful planning on everyone’s part, so you will need to find a marriage celebrant to help guide you through, and up to, your wedding day.  

That's where I come in; your Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast wedding celebrant, however I do travel to all other areas.  I will work closely with you and, where you prefer, do all the work for you.

See below a guide to what you may expect.

Simply share with me the vision of your wedding day and leave the rest to me!  

Wedding ceremonies will differ depending on culture and religion, however, wedding ceremonies see two people united by marriage and will generally involve:

  • Family and friends take their seats, ready for the wedding ceremony.​

  • The bride is escorted by her father/mother/parents, generally with the groom and groomsmen already waiting at the top of the aisle

  • Welcome by marriage celebrant

  • Introduction

  • Reading - optional

  • Exchange of vows

  • Exchange of rings - optional

  • Pronouncement of marriage

  • Signing of the marriage register

  • Conclusion and introduction of newly-wedded couple


A civil ceremony may be as short, or long, as you wish. Short ceremonies usually take about 10 – 15 minutes, whilst a longer ceremony can take approximately 20 – 30 minutes. There are no rules for the length or time of your wedding ceremony; the choice is yours to make.


There are however, requirements which need to be covered legally, although apart from that, you may structure your wedding exactly how you want it. So we can enjoy planning and customising your wedding ceremony to meet your, needs, expectations and dreams.
