Croning or Elder Ceremony
A wonderful ceremony for mature, wise men and women who want to celebrant their “graduation” on the journey of life, this is an occasion to celebrate their achievements with friends and family who love them.
Renewals of Vows
Many couples choose to renew their wedding vows, often on their wedding anniversary. A vow renewal can take place amongst family and friends, or simply between the two of you. In renewing their vows, couples reaffirm the love they have for one another and reinforce their commitment to their relationship and to their partner.
I am a qualified, authorised marriage celebrant. I believe strongly in providing a personal touch to your wedding. I create for you a romantic, intimate, personal and relaxed marriage ceremony at your choice of venue. I am happy to travel interstate and no destination is to too far away or too remote.
Your wedding is a declaration of love to be shared with friends and family, a day that will give you wonderful memories for the rest of your life, an experience that can never be recaptured.
So it is very important that the ceremony be created especially for you! I have samples of ceremonies, quotes and readings to help and assist you in choosing parts that truly reflect your personality and tastes. I am happy to personalise your marriage ceremony, including customs from your culture or themes. I will assist with all the other aspects required to make your dream come true.
I am an Elder of the Larrakia Nation, born and raised in Darwin NT and I am an acknowledged healer and teacher of the ancient wisdoms of Indigenous spirituality and healing. My commitment to you is to deliver a ceremony that is presented in a professional, warm and friendly manner that reflects your beliefs and values.

Same Gender Commitment Ceremonies
Same gender couples choose to have a commitment ceremony to declare their love to each other and to the world. A commitment ceremony can include whatever you like. It’s your ceremony, and at the moment in Australia there are no legal limitations or requirements for the ceremony.
Name Giving or Welcome Ceremonies
In many cultures, a child is not recognised as being an individual until it has been named. The act of naming someone is highly significant. It gives a child a family and cultural identity and a personal name in which they can take pride.
Names are considered to have power and different names have different meanings. It is often thought that to call a child by a particular name is also to give her or him those characteristics associated with the name’s meaning.
Naming ceremonies are appropriate for everyone. The arrival of a new baby can be celebrated with a naming ceremony. Providing a naming ceremony for older children is a beautiful way to affirm their self-esteem and give them a sense of unity with the family.
Step children and adopted children can be welcomed into their new or extended family with a naming ceremony and adults who have outgrown their birth names may find a new sense of identity through choosing their own name which has more significance for them.
