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.

Hi Karine. Thank you for being a part of our day. Choosing a celebrant was a big deal for me, and the thing I was most nervous about, as it can make or break the ceremony! You created the exact feel we wanted, made us feel relaxed and made it feel so special! Thank you again! Love Mrs Parker!!xxx National Rhododendron Gardens 18/10/14

Karine, you made our day so special. I couldn’t imagine having a more perfect celebrant for us. I was really nervous but the ceremony went by fast for me and you helped put Dion and I so at ease.

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. Wedding at Zonzo
