Civil Celebrant – Russell Goonan
Hobart, Tasmania, and at other locations by request.
I offer my professional civil celebrant services for the following ceremonies:
• Renewal of Vows Ceremonies
o The ceremony can reflect the journey that you have traveled together, the joys and successes of the marriage, the family and loved ones and memories of special times shared.
o It is a “renewal” of the love that brought you together. It is time to acknowledge the support that has sustained you both in the past. Then move forward and include your hopes and dreams for the future as a couple.
o The renewal of vows ceremony can be similar to the wedding ceremony, a re-enactment of the actual ceremony. Or it can be something to reflect the future.
o The actual format, actions and wording of the renewal of vows ceremony are entirely up to the couple.
• Commitment Ceremonies and Same-Sex Commitment Ceremonies
o Commitment ceremonies are available to couples who wish to declare their love and commitment to each other and the relationship, in front of family and friends, for whatever legal, religious reason or other reason.
o Although that legally recognized as a marriage, the commitment ceremony is an important rite of passage and is in high esteem by all who enter into it.
o It is a true uniting of two partners who are in love.
o The commitment ceremony can be similar to the wedding ceremony or any other format. The actual format, actions, and wording of the commitment ceremony are entirely up to the intended couple.
o For couples who have decided to spend the rest of their lives together and want to express the feeling formally. A public declaration of their commitment to each other in front of family and friends.
• Naming Ceremonies.
o A welcome for your child into the community. The ceremony centers on your child name and the love and support for your child.
I an a Civil Celebrant who has a strong belief in the importance and power of ceremony and the rites of passage.
