The commitment ceremony is one that satisfies a number of needs. There are those who intend to marry in the future, but wish to celebrate early for various reasons, and there are those people who because of religious or legal complications cannot go through the usual form of marriage.



Yet again there are couples of the same sex whose commitment is as strong as any other couple, who wish to celebrate their relationship by adding a further ceremonial stage, and by including family and friends in the ceremony. As one whose sensitivity to relationships is often noted by others, I offer a wide range of choices to people who desire a commitment ceremony.



The Civil Partnership Act 2008 of the Australian Capital Territory now allows people to register their relationship and choose their own celebrant.
