darlene woodward wedding celebrant cairnsWhatever your special occasion is, whether it is a wedding, elopement, renewal of vows, commitment ceremony or baby-naming ceremony… together we will create a ceremony that is unique, fun and memorable.  I am a friendly, caring and personable celebrant, who will provide a professional service and will do everything I can to make your day relaxed and fun. My ceremonies are always filled with happiness, love and usually laughter- they are never dull!

To set the right tone for your ceremony and day, it is vital to find a celebrant that you feel a connection with, and can relate to.

Wedding Ceremony

You can get married just about anywhere these days and you can customise your ceremony to meet your needs and reflect your personality. Your ceremony is as important to me, as it is to you. Your wedding day is all about you, and how you want your ceremony to evolve.  As a Marriage Celebrant, I will guide you through every step of getting married and make the process of marrying simple and enjoyable. You can relax knowing that an experienced professional has taken care of all the formalities and legal requirements. Civil marriage ceremonies can be short and sweet, fun and relaxed or encompass some traditional elements. The choice is yours! This is your day, your way. I'm interested in hearing about your life as a couple, so that I can bring your love story to life in your ceremony. Each ceremony is unique to each couple – because every couple I meet are different.

Same Sex Weddings

I completely agree with the statement "Love is love". Love takes no notice of sexuality, race, background or gender - and nor do I!

The stress and planning for a larger wedding can be a very nerve racking and stressful experience and is not suited to all couples. The same legal obligations and format exist, it is just a more intimate experience. You will be able to spend the entire time with your new husband and wife without having to socialise with all of your guests.  We will require two witnesses, plus the bride, groom and myself.

Commitment Ceremony

A Commitment Ceremony is usually similar to a wedding. The big difference is that, instead of being a legally binding ceremony, it’s simply a public affirmation of a couple’s commitment to each other. Even though it may not be legally binding, doesn’t mean it should be any less special.

Renewal of Vows

A Renewal of Vows Ceremony can resemble a traditional marriage ceremony. Recapture the magic of your wedding day and celebrate a marriage that has strengthened and grown over the years. The structure and content of the ceremony is entirely up to you, it is only limited by your imagination.

Baby Naming

If you wish to organise an alternative to a Christening, then a Baby Naming Ceremony is the perfect option and are a modern alternative to a Christening. Ceremonies are often held during a child's first year of life or even on their first birthday. A Baby Naming Ceremony is a perfect way to introduce a newborn baby to your family and friends.

For those looking for something different and adventurous

Love the Great Barrier Reef? As a Certified Scuba Diver, I can also perform underwater ceremonies, so that you may have the colourful coral reef as a backdrop.
