To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu
The wedding ceremony is the gateway to your wedding day, it’s the memory you make, which will sustain you in the future. What you say and what is done in the wedding ceremony seals the relationship between you and your partner.
Creating the “right” wedding ceremony is a time-consuming undertaking. Wedding ceremonies needs careful planning and energy and it’s going to need a wedding celebrant that you feel comfortable and confident with, who can guide you through the maze of options available. This is where Jan Littlejohn as a wedding celebrant offers her support and experience before and during the wedding ceremony.
Marriage is a huge step for anyone. It’s the joining together, physically and emotionally of two individuals who have different backgrounds and histories, but whose desire to spend the rest of their lives in each other’s company means it’s time to take the next big step. You agree on a date, a place, and a time.. I am available for wedding ceremonies in Sydney and Australia wide. I am happy to perform religious ceremonies if you wish.
