Commitment Ceremony

If you are a couple and would like to commit to one another without the binding legal requirements of a Marriage License you can enjoy a Commitment Ceremony.

A Commitment Ceremony can take many different forms. It can be as any wedding with all the bells and whistles, but without a Marriage License to make it legal in the eyes of the law. The Commitment Ceremony can include traditional vows or contemporary, involve different cultural customs such as Hand Fasting, Unity Candle or Sand Ceremony.

This special ceremony can be as large or as small as you wish it to be.

Perhaps you would prefer to have it as a private, intimate moment just between the two of you, with just the Officiant to oversee the exchange of your vows and the commitment you make or, perhaps you would like those who are special in your life to witness your commitment to one another.

Whether your ceremony is just the two of you or with a gathering of your family and friends, if you have children you may wish to have them involved in the ceremony itself as they too enter the commitment within the family circle.

Family and friends can join you in this special moment and after which a joyful celebration can be arranged. It can be formal or casual. Large or small. A particular theme or, just like the ceremony itself, it can be like a traditional wedding reception with all the elements such as the cutting of the cake, tossing the bouquet and the first dance.

This is your commitment to one another, the ceremony and celebration should reflect you both as a couple and your life together.
