Susan Artup Marriage Celebrant Penrith

Ceremony Planning Session

0408 826 743

As a dedicated and experienced marriage celebrant I extend to you an invitation to a personal ceremony planning session. We can spend 30 minutes in my office where I can show you the way a typical ceremony is planned – words, readings, symbols and dedications.

You may be surprised just how little of the wording is required by law and how much can be a reflection of your own style and taste.

This session is particularly revealing for gay couples: I encourage you to plan an individual ceremony from scratch, either embracing or eschewing traditional heteronormative ceremony practices.

After this, if you wish to go ahead with my services, we can plan another meeting to fill out your Notice of Intended Marriage (or do it on the spot). After you book me you will receive a copy of my publication, “Love is in the Air” and my booklet of ceremony examples and templates.
