I am now officially able to offer my services for same sex weddings in Melbourne. The Australian Government has passed the bill and marriage equality has finally won! This is exciting times for Australia.
The new paperwork comes into effect from 9th December 2017 and is legally recognised, regardless of gender.
A section of the Monitum will state that “marriage according to law in Australia is the union of two people…”
Like any celebration and ceremony, the options are vast and a tailored service can be produced to illustrate your relationship. You might like to include a special reading by a family member or friend, or perhaps include a ritual of your choice. Ideas can be discussed during our meeting.
No matter which options you choose, your marriage ceremony will be an important aspect of your day of celebrations.#loveislove I have always been supportive of same sex relationships and I do hope to help many more couples celebrate their love and union with a legally recognised marriage ceremony.
If you would like to chat further about what I can offer as a same sex celebrant, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Symbolic Ritual Sand CeremonyThank you Karine, we are so happy we had you as our celebrant! Thank you again so much for everything, we will definitely be recommending you! We will touch base with you soon. Kind regards
A big Thank-you to you Karine, for all of your help making our wedding ceremony so special. We had a wonderful day and couldn’t have asked for anything more. We really appreciate everything you did and wouldn’t have been the same without you. We are off for our honeymoon today but will be in touch when we get back. Riva St Kilda.

Thank you so, so much for the role you played on our day, and in the months leading up to it. You were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the planning stages, balancing any nerves and vagueness with calmness and perfect suggestions. On the day, you rolled with everything and made the ceremony as relaxed and fun as we hoped it would be. So much so, that a number of guests assumed you were a friend of ours. We’ll be recommending you to everyone we know. Zonzo

We’d like to thank you for all your help and assistance in preparing for our wedding day. The ceremony went fantastically! Thanks for working with our theme and quirkiness, and for all the little extras like the Dr Seuss quote. You performed the most important job of the day-we wouldn’t be married without you!
