Commitment Ceremony : Renewing of Vows : Naming Ceremony : Croning/Saging Ceremony : Life-change Ceremony : Service and Fees

Commitment Ceremony

Commitment ceremonies are for any couple wishing to commit to each other, whether same-sex or heterosexual. While there are no legal requirements associated with this ceremony, it can be as deeply meaningful as the marriage ceremony, and can be completely individualised to each couple’s requirements.

Renewing of Vows

Renewing of vows is usually a ceremony for those long-married or long-committed couples who wish to revisit, or renew their original vows of marriage or commitment. Each ceremony is unique, and I enjoy creating a personal and moving ceremony to mark the importance of the passing years in terms of commitment and love.

Naming Ceremony

A Naming ceremony is the civil equivalent of a christening ceremony. A Naming ceremony can be performed for any child ranging in age from a new-born through to a teenager.

Croning/Saging Ceremonies

The original intent of the Croning (female) or Saging (male) ceremony are linked from ancient time to the wisdom of the Wise Women and Elders of the Tribe. Today, the ceremonies are usually linked to ceremonies marking menopause, retirement or other changing of life circumstances relating to age, wisdom and knowledge.

Life-change Ceremony

Whenever a life-change occurs, whether marking a move of house or interstate, change of job or profession, graduation or promotion, a unique and personal life-change ceremony can be developed with me. I am a skilled public speaker, and raconteur of stories, so whatever the occasion, let me help you to design a personal, unique and individual ceremony.

This list could go on forever, but generally, I offer ceremonies for:

  • Naming of boats / yachts and houses;
  • Graduation or achievement of academic goals;
  • Welcome to honoured family guests such as grandparents or great grandparents;
  • Retirement ceremonies, including ‘This is your Life’ type ceremonies;
  • Marital ceremonies such as celebrations of separation and divorce;
  • And the list goes on…
