Commitment Ceremony

Commitment Ceremony Brisbane

Sometimes a legal marriage ceremony is not possible or wanted. This ceremony enables you to recognize your lifetime commitment to each other.

A commitment ceremony can be as formal or as relaxed as you choose and the perfect excuse to have a party with family and friends.

"Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and just be my friend"

Irish Proverb

Whilst the ceremony will not be legally registered we are able to create a ceremony in which the two of you make pledges and promises to each other, just as in a marriage ceremony.
We were married overseas, but would like to have a ceremony here so that our family and friends can be present. Can we have another ceremony?

This ceremony will not be registered in Australia because you are already married!
