Creating your Ceremony – IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK

Rossi AlexanderCelebrant0 Comments

We live in a diverse country filled with so many nationalities and cultures as well as spiritual beliefs including the local indigenous and the respect for country.

I encourage my couples to reflect and consider adding part of their history into their ceremony. It’s a way to respect their family and uniting their history and beliefs.

Wedding Location – Botanical Gardens Gold Coast

Rossi AlexanderCelebrant0 Comments

Some things stand out to make a wedding location unique. You can’t go past the enthralling Botanical Gardens in Ashmore, – the lakes, waterfalls, gardens, trees, bushes, grasslands, – Australiana at its prettiest. At my last wedding ceremony in the Gardens, I was captivated by the black swans, ducks and water hens sailing past taking a close interest in the proceedings. The kookaburras and bush turkeys also joined in singing their joy.

The wedding location is a photographic paradise.

Where to start with your vows – A must read for all Brides and Grooms!

Rossi AlexanderCelebrant, Uncategorized0 Comments

Caitlyn Scott Marriage CelebrantAs a newly registered Civil Marriage Celebrant, I have had the privilege of helping couples create their vows, I am also a ‘bride to be’ and got engaged in March last year. I have laid in bed, wide awake, thinking about writing my own vows, more times than I dare to count! To be honest, the vows are what scares me the most about the wedding… What if my vows are too long and his are too short? What if my vows are too ‘soppy’ and his aren’t? What if mine are really serious and his are humorous? What if I am crying so much, that I can’t see the page to read them? The list goes on, and on!

Uniquely Your Way

Recently I was asked ‘What is it like to be a Celebrant’?

The answer is that it is a privilege and honour to be part of one of the most exciting days in a couple’s life. From our first meeting to create a unique Ceremony, which reflects on their personality, individuality and their beliefs.

Sacred Words – Writing Your Vows

Rossi AlexanderUncategorized0 Comments

Words are powerful. Words give expression to our feelings, dreams and desires. A thought is so much more powerful when it is said out aloud, and given even more significance when it is received and affirmed by another.  Words, when spoken, become emotion in motion, in other words…energy! Vows are special promises, important words, which have a potent and magic message from our heart and soul, which are given life and energized with our life-force…. our breath.  Think of the power of affirmations or prayer even, how powerful those words can be, and know your vows are the same.

 Sarah Tolmie Marriage Celebrant Central Coast Giving one’s word is a beautiful and solemn thing….the closest thing to sacred.  Your marriage vows are heart and soul words and I truly believe they are magic and sacred words.  They are also words which are energized and given special significance by the fact that they are witnessed by others within the context of ritual and ceremony.Read More

Parentzillas – When Good Parents Turn Bad

Rossi AlexanderUncategorized0 Comments

Parents; you love them, yes, but their vision on what your wedding should look and feel like does not necessarily complement yours. A wedding can be a hugely exciting, emotional time for parents and sometimes their best intentions can come off as interfering.  I know when – or should that read ‘if’ – my daughters get married I’ll have to have very strong words with myself to stop myself overstepping the mark from helpful to interfering.
