So you’re ready to plan your same-sex commitment ceremony in Melbourne. Congratulations! Depending on the size of the ceremony you’re planning, your to-do list is probably growing by the day. Besides choosing a theme and style, selecting invitations, registering for gifts, or whatever other tasks lie ahead of you in the upcoming weeks and months, there’s one important item you’ll need to take care of: choosing a same-sex commitment celebrant in Melbourne.
Why Finding Great Same-Sex Commitment Celebrants in Melbourne Matters
The ceremony itself is the heart and soul of any wedding or commitment ceremony. Therefore, choosing your celebrant wisely is essential. Personalising your special day begins with the ceremony, especially since that’s usually one of the first things your guests will experience. A memorable ceremony sets the tone for a fabulous party and a fantastic day for everyone involved. Hiring a celebrant lets you truly personalise your ceremony!
Same-sex couples face unique challenges when it comes to choosing a celebrant. You’ll want to find a celebrant who is comfortable with your relationship and won’t be judgmental about it; a celebrant who is gay him- or herself may have a level of understanding you won’t find in others.
Who Hires Celebrants?
Anyone can hire a celebrant for their weddings or same-sex commitment ceremonies in Melbourne, but typically, while couples who choose celebrants to officiate their ceremonies are not necessarily religious, they desire a ceremony that combines any religious traditions they have and their cultural backgrounds with their unique identities. The right celebrant can help you create a ceremony that tells your story, one that is meaningful but not preachy, and one that suits your individual style – whether that style is subdued and elegant, wild and flamboyant, or somewhere in between. If that sounds like something you want, then hiring a celebrant is probably a great choice for you.

Remember, you’ll want to find a celebrant who will listen to your desires and expectations and help you create a ceremony that will be meaningful and unique to you. This is your day, and the celebrating is all about you and your commitment.
As a gay celebrant, I work with couples to help them enjoy the same-sex commitment ceremonies in Melbourne they require, as well as weddings and other types of ceremonies such as renewal of vows ceremonies, naming day ceremonies and funerals. Because I am part of the LGBTI community myself, I understand the issues surrounding same-sex commitment ceremonies. I also believe that your ceremony is yours – not mine – and I strive to be flexible and accommodate any type of ceremony you feel is right for you. I am comfortable with many styles of services from traditional to quirky, and it’s my passion to help same-sex couples honour their unions in the way they choose.
