I was authorized as a civil marriage celebrant in 1995.
I have performed more than a thousand weddings, baby namings and funerals, as well as other ceremonies since then.
In 1973 Senator Lionel Murphy became Australia’s Attorney-General. He initiated the Civil Marriage Celebrant Program.
As Lionel Murphy said “The Essence of the Civil Celebrant Program was to give couples freedom of choice.
That is the right to choose, compose and/or approve the words of their wedding ceremony. It is always possible to put words and symbols around any ideas that a couple may have. There are numerous additional rituals that can be included in your ceremony - to make it unusual and unique, well suited to your individual needs – either religious, traditional or unusual.
Every couple has a right to expect a celebrant to oblige them with the ceremony they want.
