Your Local Melbourne Marriage Celebrant – Lise Rodgers
The Melbourne Marriage Celebrant – Lise Rodgers is ready to create your wedding memories. A Beautifully written ceremony that will tell your love story.
For me, that’s what being a Melbourne civil celebrant is all about. Telling your story in a way that every one can enjoy. Crafting a ceremony that celebrates who you are as individuals and what you’ve found together as a couple. Relaxed and simple, light hearted and fun, small and intimate or formal and traditional – it’s whatever suits you.
And in fact having the freedom to choose what you want your ceremony to be is the very core of the Civil Celebrants program in Australia. A program introduced in 1973 by the Attorney-General of the day, the late Lionel Murphy; who believed that couples should have more than just the option of a religious service or attending the registry office.
Couples should be able to choose when, where and how they celebrated such an important moment in their lives and be free to add personal elements into their ceremony and to choose a celebrant they felt comfortable with. Can you imagine not being able to get married in Melbourne in the gardens, or by the water? To not be able to hold your ceremony at home, or on a boat, or at a reception centre? We’ve certainly come a long way and that’s why I love being a Melbourne Marriage celebrant.
Working with you to create a marriage ceremony that’s warm, genuine and engaging, where your personalities set the mood and the style. A ceremony that is the perfect beginning to your perfect day. Never overly long and definitely never boring!
Always delivered with style, wit, elegance and grace. Well dressed, well rehearsed and well spoken – as you would expect from a professional Melbourne wedding celebrant.
Getting Married by Lise Rodgers
“So what do we have to do to get married? I’ve never done this before and I don’t know where to start.”
Couples ask this question every week and at its simplest, getting married is both a commitment of the heart and a commitment under law, so the answer breaks down into 2 parts – The Australian Legal Wedding List of Requirements and Melbourne Marriage Celebrant Ceremony Planning,
I’m here to make the whole thing as easy as I can, setting up a manageable time line so you’ll know what has to be done when and helping you through any problems that might arise. Offering advice and information if you need it and happy to share my experience as one of the busier Marriage Celebrants in Melbourne so that on the day, you have the wedding you want.
