I am a very proud supporter of marriage equality.
It filled me with such happiness when on the 7th December 2017, the Australian Parliament finally passed the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Act 2017 to change the definition of marriage and provide for marriage equality in Australia.
Planning a wedding?
A renewal of vows ceremony is a way for couples to celebrate their marriage and relive their wedding day.
For some people, the ceremony serves as a way to celebrate a significant anniversary and a number of years together, or to reaffirm their love and commitment to each other after a rough period in their relationship.
The ceremony can take place anytime after the actual wedding, in any location – with a room full of guests or in an intimate setting with just the couple.
Planning to renew your vows?
Many parents want to celebrate the birth of their child but have decided against a religious christening. A baby naming ceremony is often likened to a “non religious baptism” where the arrival of a new child is celebrated and officially welcomed into the circle of family and friends.
Some elements to a baby naming ceremony include the parents making promises to the child, grand-parents may also be involved and good friends or family members can be nominated as ‘Life Guardians’ in place of Godparents.
Other elements which can form part of a baby naming ceremony include music, poems, readings, lighting of candles, wishing books, balloon releases, or even a cake smash!
