I love you not only for what you are but for what I am with you. Roy Croft
Do you remember those first few words of love?
Beautiful memories are created moment by moment and the right words weave a special magic.
Fortunately civil marriages (that means those celebrated outside a religious context) allow a great deal of flexibility. There are many different ceremony styles and structures that can be adapted to suit you. You can choose a traditional ceremony; something more contemporary, or something which reflects your cultural background. Maybe you want a ceremony written especially for you? Perhaps you’d like a particular reading, a poem or a favourite piece of music.? You may want to include friends and family, such as children from a previous relationship. The choice is yours.
Whether this is your first marriage or your third, whether you are young, or marrying later in life, let's create a little magic.
Pamela Murray-Jones is based is southern Sydney and conducts marriages across Sydney, down to Wollongong as well as in her home town of Newcastle. Other locations by special request.
It doesn't matter where you go in life. What matters is who you have beside you.
Sometimes love and marriage don't always go together - despite what the songs tells us. But that's no reason to miss out on the poignancy and joy of public commitment .
Whether you are a same sex couple or married to another, your ceremony should express all you mean to each other; all you feel for each other, and all your hopes for your future together.
Enchanting? Bewitching? Captivating or charming? You choose the style.
Reaffirmation or Renewal of Vows
Across the years I will walk with you in deep green forests and shores of sand. And when our time on earth is through, in heaven too you will have my hand.
Do you still catch you breath when she walks into the room? Secretly hold hands under the table and hope nobody notices? Or do you just wish you did?
Romance is timeless....
Hold the enchantment or re-ignite the fire by celebrating the joy of a past filled with happiness and a future filled with anticipation..
Your reaffirmation ceremony can be a magic carpet ride back to the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s; a gentle walk through the past; or as cosy as a cup of hot chocolate and a pair of warm slippers beside the fire. Funny, poignant or warm - whatever romance means to you.
