A letter From Deb
Your involvement in the creation of your ceremony can be large or small - the choice is always yours.
Your ceremony is created with you in mind, to suit you as an individual, you in partnership, your beliefs and most importantly your vision of your ceremony. Whether it is your wedding, welcoming a child, renewing your vows, making a commitment to your soul mate or simply celebrating a birthday or anniversary.
Initially, you may not know exactly what you want in a ceremony, in my experience it is a matter of me asking the right questions to get the right answers; so that we can build a tailor-made ceremony to suit your needs.
I will thoughtfully prepare a unique and meaningful ceremony with your guidance. I encourage and welcome your ideas and will work with you to create a special occasion for you, your family and friends. Your involvement in the creation of your ceremony can be large or small - the choice is always yours.
Ceremonies are an integral part of our lives, connecting and reuniting loved ones. These happy occasions bring people from near and far to celebrate together and create lifelong memories which become cherished moments in time.
More people today find that religious ceremonies are not meeting their needs as individuals; civil ceremonies provide a valuable alternative to fill that gap. Your wedding ceremony can still incorporate religious or spiritual elements. A baby naming takes the place of a baptism or christening, a coming of age ceremony for a teenager replaces confirmation. A renewal of vows is to celebrate an existing marriage often incorporated into an anniversary or a commitment ceremony can be to celebrate a partnership without the legal requirements. I'm also a Lesbian/Gay friendly celebrant and perform Same Sex ceremonies.
Other celebrations include birthday, anniversary, housewarming, adult name change, divorce or separation, blending of families and other rites of passage. Leisure and Business celebrations include boat launching, retirement or opening a new business. Two new concepts in ceremonies are a “This is your life” or “party with a purpose”, go to the CCN website or contact me for more details. Anytime in your life that is significant to you as a living human being can be recognised and celebrated with a ceremony.
I perform ceremonies around the Coffs Harbour region including the Orara Valley, North to Grafton, West to Dorrigo and South to Macksville Please enquire about travel to other areas.
