Where can a Wedding Ceremony take place?

In fact, in Australia, a marriage ceremony can take place anywhere, indoors or outdoors. You can have your ceremony either in a garden or a park, on the beach, a function venue, a restaurant or even in your own home or backyard. There is no restriction on where a wedding ceremony can take place.

Can the couple include any readings or poems?

I will definitely encourage any family or friends’ involvement in the ceremony. There are many lovely ways in which we can get family and friends involved. They can select a popular piece of poetry from my collection or anywhere else, or they might want to write something personal about the couple that is shared on the day. We just have to make sure that the content accurately reflects the couple, and that those doing readings are comfortable with public readings.

How long does a wedding ceremony take?

Usually, a wedding ceremony takes 20 – 30 minutes. What can make a wedding ceremony longer or shorter, are the number of readings and poems you might like to include. As well as any rituals you can incorporate into the ceremony. I will guide you and present you with many options. You also might like to include your own vows.  

Can we play music at the wedding?

You can play any type of music off my PA system, or have musicians at the sight. I will advise you on various music options in advance. The bride can walk down the aisle to your favourite song, or sign your marriage certificate with your favourite band playing in the background. There are no restrictions when it comes to music during your wedding ceremony at all and so you can choose something that you both love, as there are definitely no limits to your options.

Can we say our own Wedding Vows?

After reciting the required legal wedding vows, you can then say/read your own vows. You can write and put together your own promises, feelings, wishes and commitment to each other. I will also send you my FREE complimentary package. In it, you can find a huge collection of wedding vows which I collected over the years to help inspire you when writing your own vows. 
You can write your vows together, you can write them separately, you can email me together or separately. Or you can include a poem in your vows that expresses you and your partner.  I will then include your vows in the script for your wedding ceremony to make it extra special for you. 

Do we need to exchange rings?

Legally in Australia, a couple does not have to exchange rings. At the same time, it is a wedding symbolic tradition still kept by most couples. Usually, the couple also exchanges some words while putting the ring on the one they love. Words which reflect their feelings and aspiration for the marriage. The rings symbolize everlasting love and as the rings have no end, neither is the love between the couple. 

Who should walk the bride down the aisle?

There are actually no set rules for that. Traditionally, it always used to be the dad who walked his daughter down the aisle. But is for any reason that is not the way you want it to be, there are other options. You might want to choose both your parents to walk you down the aisle, it can be your mum, stepdad, brother, uncle. Or you might want to walk alone. It is all going to be your choice.

Some Wedding Ceremonies testimonials
Hi Orna, First of all, Lucy and I feel lucky and very happy that you were our marriage celebrant for our wedding. You are the most brilliant as well as beautiful celebrant in Australia. I can’t thank you enough. Everything was perfect the ceremony was absolutely fantastic because of you on a beautiful sunny Sunday.

I don’t remember if I said ‘goodbye’ and saw you out. I can’t remember anything properly I was too busy and didn’t know what to do after the ceremony and I fell asleep without sending you ‘thank you ‘message.
Lucy and I’d like to see you again. Please let us contact you again for a coffee or anything
Yours Sincerely,Chace & Lucy Wedding Ceremony, July 2018
It is indeed an absolute pleasure to write this review about Orna. She is an absolute professional wedding celebrant and helped us immensely from the start when I first called her with regards to my impending wedding. My wife Lakmini takes this opportunity to thank her for the wonderful ceremony and all the help that she gave us before, during and after the ceremony. We have no hesitation in recommending the services. Thanks Orna.
Wedding Ceremony Praveen & Lakmini, June 2018
I can’t thank Orna enough for being such a great help to me and my partner, her friendly and personal service is only surpassed by her being available to answer enquiries at any time. She is also great for assisting couples like me and my wife when it comes to helping with the immigration matter. I highly recommend Orna as a wonderful person and services as a celebrant.

Orna, we like to thank you for making our day truly special and helping us put together a wonderful and sentimental day not just the ceremony though also the reception. Your knowledge and care was really a blessing and we are blessed to have found you. From sourcing places for the event to preparing the documents and providing a special folder afterwards and following up the certificate. Thank you very grateful. And highly recommend you.
Wedding Ceremony Sonya & Mile, April 2018
My wife and I are very glad we chose Orna to be our celebrant. She is very professional prior to and during our ceremony. Clear and concise voice and very prepared for our ceremony. We especially really appreciate the ceremony folder she has gifted us. Definitely would recommend Orna.
Wedding Ceremony Julius & Belinda, March 2018

Wedding Ceremony Avraham & Elina, March 2018
Hi Orna
First of all, I would like to say thank you for the lovely welcome feeling you gave both to Alex and myself from the day we meet you. We feel honoured to have had such a lovely small ceremony to celebrate our marriage with you and his parents, your words were just beautiful.
Thank you for opening your home up to us so we could make this day possible. Thank you for sending the photos through and I will make sure to complete your feedback form and send to you in the next day or 2.

Some Reviews from 2017
Thanks Orna, you did a great job! It was the such a great ceremony and day. We will get you this form and some photos shortly. Thank you.
Wedding Ceremony David & Skye, December 2017
I do not know how to adequately express our gratitude and appreciation for your dedicated services for our wedding. You were absolutely magnificent, not only on the day itself but especially from the moment of our first meeting and became our guide through the process of learning and adopting our Jewish service for our situation. Also, you were always there for us, and with such warmth and confidence. You were completely open to all our suggestions/recommendations and questions. In the end, we had the script that truly reflected who we are now – a mature couple (seniors in fact) deciding to formalize an existing relationship. You particularly helped my now husband John feel comfortable with the Jewish components of the service. In particular, you made all our guests present at the service understand and feel carried through its intricate detail which was unfamiliar to the majority. I felt so proud to stand under your Chupah and watch you guide John, especially with the breaking of the glass. Your calm inner-strength enabled us to walk forward with confidence into our married life. Thank you.
Wedding Ceremony Therese & John, November 2017
Dear Orna,
Thank you for being a part of our wedding and your speech. It was very special for us both. Thank you for your efforts. Will be in touch soon with some photos!
Regards,
Wedding Ceremony Isabelle and Michael, November 2017

Hope you are had a lovely day and thank you for helping make our wedding effortless & wonderful!
Kind regards,
