Brisbane and Bayside Civil Ceremonies
Brisbane and the Bayside civil ceremonies are simply delightful! Celebrate those special occasions that live on as great memories.
Namings, Vow Renewals, Anniversaries, Commitments, Birthdays, Celebrations of Life Ceremonies
These civil ceremonies or secular ceremonies are alternatives to specific religious, or faith-based ceremonies. We all experience significant life events, reach goals and make life-changing choices. As well as weddings, there are many other special occasions to celebrate and to share our happiness with those who care about us. Ceremony and ritual give special meaning to significant life moments. Not only do they they provide structure for our celebrations, they also allow us to share hopes, dreams and reflections with our loved ones.
As a Brisbane and Bayside Civil Ceremonies Celebrant I assist you to choose rituals that are meaningful to you. There are many different types of rituals that you can include in civil or secular ceremonies. Do you know that Religious, faith-based and cultural traditions and rituals can be included in civil secular ceremonies? As your Celebrant, I either lead these rituals, participate, or if you prefer, I take a step back. In a particular cultural or religious area, sometimes skilled or formally authorised persons must lead the rituals. As a Brisbane and Bayside Civil Ceremonies Celebrant, I am happy to work with and support all participants in your ceremony.
I delight in meeting many people from a wide range of backgrounds and love to be a part of celebrating those special life occasions.
Giving of a Name
A Naming or Name Giving or Giving of a Name ceremony is a civil, secular ceremony. It is an alternative to a religious ceremony that particular churches and religious communities conduct. In the Christian church, a ‘christening’ or ‘baptism’ includes a naming.
Celebrate the giving of a name in a delightful Naming ceremony to express the values, hopes, dreams and wishes for this special person.

Celebrating a Life
Each person’s life is a gift that touches so many people in so many different ways. As you say farewell to a loved one, take time to reflect on the life of a very special person and your relationship with them.
Celebrate the life of a loved one who has died with a respectful Remembrance, Funeral, Calling Home or Celebration of Life ceremony. These ceremonies not only recognise the contribution of a unique life journey but also bring comfort and closure for family and friends.
