Hi Guys. My name is Lyn Grace— a fully registered Civil Celebrant having studied with The Australian Celebrations Training team in Brisbane, and registered with the Attorney Generals Department Australia.
I am a writer, Liaison Officer for the New England Writers Centre, perform public speaking in schools with the Books in Homes Children’s organisation for underprivileged children, work in retail.
Family is such an important part of my life, and the main reason as to why I became a Celebrant. I love the idea of being able to share with couples their special events in the journey of their lives. From marriage or commitment ceremonies, through to naming day ceremonies for your children, to renewal of vows later down the track; when we just want to remember how beautiful our love for each other is. Marriage is the cornerstone of our love for one another. There is nothing more binding and beautiful. And that includes same sex couples.
For me, a couples wedding day is one of the most intimate special days of your life, but it is sometimes a case of everything thing else being planned out and organised perfectly, and then an average ceremony seems to let it all down. You shouldn’t have to “just accept” a standard delivery of your service. This is your one chance to have everything perfect, so it is my belief that you are entitled to a ceremony which is intimate, unique, personally suited to you both, and a little fun to keep your guests awake!
I want you to remember your ceremony with as much fondness as the whole of your wedding day. Your dress, your rings, the venue, your family and friends— all, of this forms the essence of what makes your day so special and unique. Your ceremony should be nothing less.
As a writer I can ensure you a beautiful written ceremony, and the experience of your ceremony will be one you can remember fondly, setting the scene for the rest of your exciting day. Just leave all the finer details to me, including all the official legal documents and paperwork which I will submit for you, so you both can simply relax and enjoy your day.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my site, and I would be honoured for the opportunity to share in your special day. Together we can work to make this day something other than “just acceptable” and “ordinary.” For you deserve nothing but the best!
I am located in Tamworth NSW and travel within the Northern Tablelands to the Mid North Coast, the Hunter Region, and Inland.
I am happy to negotiate a fee for travel elsewhere in the state.
Renewal of Vows
Vow renewal or re-affirmation is a beautiful ceremony many married couples choose to share, often around a significant anniversary or simply as a way of reaffirming their love for one another.
It works in a similar way to a normal wedding ceremony, without the legal bits, and you may like to include friends or bridal party etc to be your witnesses.
I work in conjunction with you both to write a personal intimate ceremony, and can offer the unity candle ritual or any inclusions you wish to add.
You will be presented with a professionally printed signed certificate of the day.
Much like a Vow Renewal, a Commitment Ceremony is a non-legal ceremony to celebrate the love of a couple— usually same sex couples.
I will meet with you and gain a close insight into you both, allowing me to write a beautiful heartfelt ceremony for you, with all the usual inclusions of vows and readings, leaving out the legal affirmations required for a legalised marriage.
You may include any rituals you like, and will be presented a professionally signed certificate of the day.
Getting married is such a personal unique experience, that every wedding I perform is written and planned around you. No two weddings are the same, and I will work with you to ensure we get it exactly right, ensuring you both beautiful memories of your day. Whether you’re eloping, having a quiet gathering or a huge event, and anything in between, I will guarantee you a heart-felt ceremony.
In general a Wedding Ceremony will last between 20-30 minutes, depending on the readings and vows you choose. You will need two witnesses over the age of 18 to witness and sign the official marriage documents, which I will then submit for you to the Birth Death and Marriages.
You will be presented with an elegant professionally printed Certificate of Marriage on the day.
There are many choices of inclusions and rituals which we can go through together, such as sand ceremonies or unity candle lightings which can combine new members of a family unit.
Also some couples choose to include a naming ceremony for their child or children on the same day, which I’m happy to do.
I have a wide array of resources for you to look over to help with your choices.
A naming ceremony is a unique way of welcoming your child into the world and affirming that you and the godparents/guardians will continue to love and guide your child throughout their life.
I will write and present a personal meaningful ceremony for you which generally takes between 15-30 mins depending on what inclusions you choose, such as readings or rituals etc. It is your choice to have a purely secular event involving readings and verses which I will supply, or more religious inclusions such as prayers and blessings.
There are so many unique and different rituals which can be chosen such as candle ceremony or balloon release, tree plantings, & petal, oil or water blessings… I am willing to work with you to give you that unique ceremony which you as a family desire.
At the end of the service you will be presented an elegant signed certificate in memory of the day and a beautiful personalised candle with your child’s name and date of event inscribed on it.
