Our Process

Give me a call or send me an email to get started. I will need the date of your wedding so I can make sure I am available. We will meet (obligation free) and discuss what you both envisage for your wedding day ceremony. I explain all the legal requirements, and what my role as your celebrant involves.

If you are happy, then you simply book me!


A second meeting is organised to lodge the Notice of Intended Marriage (NIM). The booking deposit is now due and I will give you a resource kit to help with the ceremony and how you would like to express your love.

Draft Ceremony

I will provide you with a draft ceremony and during this time you can call me as little or as often as you like. Together we will create a beautiful ceremony reflecting your love, personality and commitment to each other.


A rehearsal is optional, however I encourage my couples to organise a few hours close to your special day to run through the ceremony, even if it's just at home. A rehearsal helps the wedding party gain an insight on proceedings for the day.

Your Big Day

Your special day arrives and the ceremony is fabulous and tailored to you both. This is where I leave you to enjoy the day, and my role ends after the lodgement of your documents to Births Deaths & Marriages.

Sharon Swinbourne's Civil Celebrant Services


Your day, your way
A wedding ceremony is a personal gift the couple offer to each other. It's a beautiful ceremony for the families of the couple to come together to share a beautiful day of love. I work with you and your partner to create a unique and personalised ceremony that you will remember forever..


Death...we really don't like to talk about it, do we? When it happens, it can be a daunting experience for families. Whatever the circumstances, my role as a funeral celebrant is to deliver a service that celebrates that life with dignity and respect.


Let's do it again!
Couples who have been married overseas may wish to have another ceremony with family and friends who were unable to attend their legal ceremony. Much like a renewal of vows, these ceremonies do not have any legal standing but are the perfect way of celebrating the love between two people.


A celebration of love
Many couples have a renewal of vows ceremony to celebrate special occasions in their lives such as a significant wedding anniversary. Although these ceremonies do not have any legal standing, they are still meaningful and celebrate the relationship and love of the couple.


A wonderful alternative to a religious ceremony
A baby naming ceremony is a great way for parents to introduce their beautiful new son or daughter to their family and friends. The ceremony can take place anywhere, and the Godparents or Guardians still play an important role in the ceremony.
