Your wedding day with Maryanne Bristow

Your Wedding Day

Congratulations on your decision to get married! Your wedding day is on of the most special moments in your life, so the fun and excitement should start with your ceremony, it really does set the mood for the whole day.

This is your day, your wedding ceremony and I believe your wedding ceremony should always contain exactly what you want, and my role is to ensure you achieve that, even if you are not quite sure what that might be.

I can guide you to create a beautiful ceremony that celebrates your relationship, while carefully including the legal requirements needed for your wedding. Your ceremony will provide you with great memories of a happy, enjoyable occasion for not only you, but also for your family and friends.

This may include a traditional ceremony style, where the bride is walked down the aisle to her groom. An exchange of rings and vows occur, then after the necessary certificates are signed, the newly married couple are presented to waiting friends and family. Within this style there are a great variety of vows, ring exchange words and readings to choose from so that each ceremony becomes unique to that couple.

Or you may want to include other elements or symbols including: Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony,Warming of Rings, Handfasting, Butterfly Release, Rose Ceremony

The union of multicultural families also provides many wonderful and colourful ways to create amazing weddings. A great way to combine new families from different cultures is to bring their traditions together at the wedding. Introducing elements such as clothing, special wording, or symbols from the bride and grooms culture can enrich and enliven the ceremony.

These are just some of the many ways other elements, symbols and culture can be used to create a personal and unique ceremony.

This is your ceremony so your inclusions are only limited by your imagination. Please contact me for other questions you may have about your wedding day.


Some kind words…

“Having Maryanne as our celebrant was one of our best wedding decisions we made.

Maryanne was professional from start to finish. From our very first engagement, Maryanne was; extremely organised, friendly, made us feel comfortable and had an amazing understanding of the type of casual theme/environment we wanted for our wedding and was instrumental in creating it. From walking us through the legislative requirements, paperwork through to helping us author the vows; Maryanne was just fantastic and made the entire process seamless.  Maryanne’s experience really shone through and came to the fore.

We had excellent feedback from our guests about how wonderful and personalised our ceremony was.

We have no hesitation in recommending Maryanne as a celebrant”
