Until same-sex marriage is legalised in Australia, Commitment ceremonies are a popular alternative to gay marriage or a civil union. While not legally binding, a Commitment Ceremony can be almost identical to a traditional wedding ceremony in every other way. There are no rules for commitment ceremonies - yours can be designed to suit you exactly.
Renewal of Vows
Celebrate your marriage and confirm to your partner just how much you love them. Couples often renew their marriage vows on an important wedding anniversary.
As an experienced relationship counsellor and committed to marriage enrichment, Jonathan can help you to create the perfect Renewal ceremony. You might like to reflect on the highlights of your marriage, tell your partner how much you love them and make renewed promises for the future.
Jonathan can also suggest ways of incorporating elements of your original ceremony and/or wedding. Renewal of Vows can be a small private affair or involve your wider family and friends.
Baby Naming Days
Naming Days are a modern-day alternative to a christening or baptism. Ceremonies tend to be non-religious, but they can be tailored to accommodate different cultural traditions, faiths and beliefs. Ceremonies are often held during a child's first year of life or on their first birthday.
Surround your child with warmth and love and let them know how important they are. Family and friends are reminded of the joys and responsibilities of raising a child. Mentors or godparents can be chosen and may offer promises or blessings for your child.
Jonathan has wide experience in conducting Naming Days specifically with babies and children in mind. His aim is to create happy, relaxed and personal occasions for the whole family to enjoy.
