Weddings, Renewal of Vows, Commitment Ceremonies and Naming Ceremonies in South Australia

Why choose Marion for your special day?

I've been married for 27 years and continue to feel the love, the happiness and the strength of the bond of marriage. I love to make people happy, and to share in their special day allows me to spread happiness.


Let me help you with your ceremony. From weddings to renewal of vows to baby naming ceremonies and everything in between, whether young, not so young, same sex, disabled, whatever and whoever you are - I will ensure your day is “uniquely your own” - an enriching, memorable and exceptional experience.

I am warm, friendly, compassionate and caring. I love doing what I do, and I'm confident you will too.

Sharing time with the people that mean the most to you is one of the greatest experiences. I hope I can share your special day with you.




From Traditional, Modern, Legals Only or Unique. Marriage is the promise between two people who love each other, who trust each other, who honour and respect one another as individuals.

The choice of wedding style is yours and I am here to help you have the day of your dreams.

Renewal of Vows

A beautiful way to express your love and commitment to your lifelong partner. An opportunity to reflect on the time you’ve shared together, to reaffirm the vows you have made to each other, or if you were married overseas, the renewal of your vows is an opportunity for you to celebrate your commitment to each other without the legal parts before your family and friends.

Commitment Ceremonies

A perfect choice for a couple who may not be ready to commit to marriage but want to celebrate their relationship.

A special occasion to share with family and friends how deeply you feel your love and commitment to each other.

Naming Ceremonies

A lovely way to celebrate the arrival of your child, and an occasion to acknowledge the appointment of godparents, guardians or mentors of the child and to share with parents, grandparents, friends and those closest to you.

Whether your child is a baby, one year old, school age or more, I can help design a ceremony to suit your choices, guided by your cultural rites, family traditions, rituals - anything to make the naming of your child a truly special event.

The Ceremony
the choice is yours...


Most include readings, blessings, family member contributions to the ceremony, ring exchange, signing the register and announcing the married couple for all to congratulate.


Similar to a traditional wedding, but can include any kind of possibilities such as Acknowledgement of Country, blessings, modern rituals such as hand-fasting, candle lighting, sand ritual - or add special moments with children and family.

The choices are endless and all yours to make.

Legals Only

For the couple that truly just want to get on with marriage, rather than spend a lot of time at a ceremony.

Similar to a Registry Office marriage, it satisfies all the legal requirements but has no extras or embellishments.

It can take as little as 10 minutes to be married if you're looking for a quick wedding.


you might have individual special ideas for your wedding such as a special theme, colour coded, medieval, beach-side.

the beauty is that it's your day to do it your way.


What do we need to do before the Wedding...

We'll meet so you can share with me what you want for your wedding day and we'll work out together how to make it as memorable for you as possible.

Once the date and time is set and you're ready to go ahead, we'll talk through all the legal staff and meet again to fill in the paperwork. A booking fee is payable at this time. You'll need to bring your official documents (birth certificate, photo ID etc).

You'll receive the official “Happily Ever ... Before and After” pamphlet and we'll talk through what it means to be married and discuss any concerns you may have.

If you would like a rehearsal during the week before the wedding, we can meet again to go through final arrangements.

Rituals and Blessings

Have you considered including some of the more non-traditional rituals and blessings into your ceremony?

I am able to help with whatever you're looking for.
Come and see me and I'll be happy to talk through these and many more with you.

After all, this is your day to be done your way... giving you exquisite memories to keep for all time
