Sherrilyn Griffith - Civil Marriage Celebrant
Committment Ceremonies
 
Committment Ceremonies are quite special, as they occur when two people decide that they wish to make a public statement about their relationship.  Commitment Ceremonies can be between a man and women, two women or two men. Although it might be stating the obvious, it is paramount that the couple decides exactly how it is that they wish to have the event conducted.  There are no legal requirements for this Ceremony, so is therefore entirely up to the couple to decide what they would like. The basis might be the Marriage Ceremony but this is quite flexible. Although there is no reason to stick to any format used for another occasion.  Like any other Ceremony, it is important that you include the thoughts and words that are appropriate to your beliefs and expectations. It is my job to work with you, to perform a ceremony that suits your needs.
 
You will also be presented with a beautiful certificate that can be framed or placed in a book to mark the special occassion. This certificate will be signed by the couple, their witnesses and the celebrant.
 
Fee for a Committment Ceremony is $280.
Additional services will incur additional fees:           As negotiated
Travel is customarily charged at $1.00 per km where more than 50km from celebrant home.  
 
 
Marriage Renewal Ceremonies
 
Marriage Renewal Ceremonies are where you reaffirm the vows that you took to each other at the time you were originally married. Like any other ceremony, it is important that you include the thoughts and words that are appropriate to your beliefs and expectations. It is important that the couple decides exactly how it is that they wish to have the event conducted.  There are no legal requirements for this ceremony, so is entirely up to the couple to decide what they would like. The basis might be the Marriage Ceremony but this is quite flexible. Although there is no reason to stick to any format used for another occasion.  Like any other ceremony, it is important that you include the thoughts and words that are appropriate to your beliefs and expectations. It is my job to work with you, to perform a ceremony that suits your needs.
 
You may wish to be involved in a Reaffirmation Ceremony because:
  • you have been married for a period of time like 10, 25 or 50 years, or something similar
  • you were originally married in a location distant from some members of their family, and now wish to involve absent family and friends. This could be the case in the event of an overseas wedding.
  • you may have been married in a ceremony which did not include some aspects which you now consider important: vows, rings etc.
 
You will also be presented with a beautiful certificate that can be framed or placed in a book to mark the special occassion. This certificate will be signed by the couple, their witnesses and the celebrant.
