Hey Wayne, thank you so so much for yesterday, it was everything we wanted and more. Thank you so much for a very personal ceremony. The now - (Mr & Mrs Blanch)

Marriage definitely is a very exciting time, its the day you both will always remember for the rest of your lives. Keeping this in mind, make sure that the ceremony you choose is the one that suits you both. So work closely with me and let me piece together the ceremony that will always be remembered. 

Also did you know that your marriage vows are "very" important, not just because of the legalities, but because they are the most integral part of your wedding day. They are the words that marry you when you openly pledge a lifelong commitment to your betrothed. The wedding vows is a symbol of a commitment to building a NEW life together, and is the most romantic moment of your whole day. Though most times the vows are rarely given any thought of, only until everything else is done or when the celebrant brings it to the couples attention. So remember, your wedding vows are so much more important than anything - as the vows is your pledge of commitment to your love. Though I do encourage couples to write their own vows but if they don't want to, then that's alright, because I do have a selection for them to choose from. So if you are thinking on marriage in the near future, then think carefully about the words you would like to say to the one you love. 

The proud parents Cameron & Felicity with their beautiful son Connor, whom I Christened into their Faith at Wollongong Botanic Gardens. The Christening Ceremony ran for forty minutes along with music and appropriate songs. Certificates were handed out to all grandparents, godparents, and of course the Official Christening Certificate itself.

The memories that you have helped create will last us a lifetime. Wishing you every happiness for the future;                                                                                                               Renee, Scott and Loxley

This wedding had two Ceremonies in one. A Christian ceremony combined with the rituals and traditions of a Buddhist wedding ceremony. It was very moving to say it mildly as many of the guests did proclaim later. This wedding was held at the Fitzroy Inn, Mittagong NSW.
