We are three local Darwin-based celebrants, qualified and registered to perform and celebrate marriage ceremonies but also experienced and skilled in other ceremonies such as Commitment Ceremonies, Naming Ceremonies (the civil equivalent of a christening) and Croning (Wise Woman) ceremonies.
Together we formed NT Celebrants in 2006, a collective of three celebrants who are dedicated to offering you quality services, professional ceremony development and performance and an understanding of the stresses of making your wedding day as memorable and as happy as possible. In the event of ill-health or an adverse calamity, we support each other and ensure that one way or another, the show will go on!!
While we are nationally registered to celebrate marriages around Australia, and will travel wherever clients need us, our focus is on providing quality services for couples and clients in Darwin and the Top End.
