Baby Naming

A non-religious alternative to baptism or christening, this ceremony provides the opportunity to celebrate the joy of welcoming a new baby to a family.

A naming ceremony is an opportunity to confirm parents' love and commitment to their child and declare hopes and dreams for their future.

This ceremony can be performed in the location of your choosing or a family home and among family and friends.

Renewal of Vows

These ceremonies are usually performed when a couple wishes to celebrate their wedding anniversary, & want their family & friends to share this celebration with them.

Some couples choose to select this ceremony after the birth of a child.

Commitment/Gay Commitment

A Ceremony for couples who wish to make a formal commitment to each other without a legal marriage ceremony. It is generally for couples who for legal or other personal reasons are unable to marry. A commitment ceremony is not a marriage.

Sometimes couples who have married overseas wish to have a ceremony for family & friends who were unable to join them for their wedding day. Words from the actual marriage ceremony can be cleverly incorporated into the commitment ceremony by Michele.

Included in these ceremonies are commitments by same gender couples who wish to have a meaningful ceremony before family & friends.


As a very experienced celebrant and educator, Michele offers refresher courses & a mentoring service to students & newly appointed celebrants.

If you are interested in this service or have any questions please use the Contact Form.


Many people are not aware that families & individuals are not obliged to use a celebrant appointed by the funeral director.

You can choose your own and simply inform your funeral director of your choice.

If you require Michele's services for the life celebration of your loved one, or to assist you to prepare your own funeral ceremony and eulogy, please call directly on 0414 353 646 or 9313 5012.
