"When you came into my life, I realized that what I had always thought was happiness, couldnt compare to the joy loving you has brought me. You are a part of everything I think, do and feel and with you by my side I believe anything is possible" -- Author unknown
Say together........ "Our love is strengthened by knowing that each of us could survive on our own, if we wanted to, but realizing, that more than anything, we chose to be together." -- Unknown author
".......Family and friends are a very important part of Mary and Johns lives and they are delighted to have you here today to join them. They chose this beautiful location to be married, and to start the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. Mary and Johns relationship really began 18 months ago. It wasnt the fairytale meeting everyone dreams of but still one to remember. It only took .......... "
"John and Mary have given serious and unhurried consideration to their new roles and particularly the responsibilities to each others children. They agree to love and support each one equally, and to the best that they know how, to create a safe, fair, loving, honest, respectful and caring environment in which each of them can grow and prosper".
I’m Elizabeth Gray, a popular celebrant who gained a Diploma of Marriage celebrancy at the International College of Celebrants in Melbourne, Victoria in 2003.
I found that working as a celebrant very rewarding and I feel I have privileged to be part pf peoples lives at times of celebration and healing.
I am excited about being able to share my experiences with you so that you can create a very personal celebration of your own.
Look forward to assisting you, and wish you well on your special occasion!
