Commitment Ceremony

A Commitment Ceremony is a meaningful and dignified Ceremony for adult couples of any gender, who want to make a public declaration of their life-long commitment and love for each other.

What is a Commitment Ceremony?

What is a Commitment Ceremony?

Do you want to Commit to your partner but don’t want any of the legalities?

Perhaps a Commitment ceremony is what you need. Let me explain exactly what that is.

Today, couples have so many choices about what kind of ceremony they can have, aside from a legal marriage.

A Commitment Ceremony is a meaningful and dignified Ceremony for adult couples of any gender who want to make a public declaration of their life-long commitment and love for each other.

Without legal rights and responsibilities and your marital status will still be the same after the Ceremony.

A commitment ceremony is just that—a commitment to your partner.

They allow a couple to commit themselves to each other and affirm their relationship.

A Commitment Ceremony still has all the feel-goods of a wedding, but without the legal paperwork.

You can share the ceremony with family and friends, or have it privately without guests, in any location of your choice.

 

What’s Included?

A Ceremony can include everything a wedding ceremony does:

  • exchange of vows, your vows will hold the same weight to you and your partner as they would in an actual marriage.
  • Readings
  • Music
  • Symbolic Rituals
  • exchange of rings, and
  • a reception can be included as well, just like any other Ceremony.

This is the Celebration of your commitment to each other, so you can have anything you like with a Celebrant led Ceremony.

You even get your own commemorative certificate on the day.

Usually, during the wedding ceremony, you do this as a promise from one person to the other to bind their lives together.

Why Have a Commitment Ceremony?

The reasons some couples have commitment ceremonies over legal weddings are varied and very much for personal reasons.

They may have been married before and don’t want all the fuss, or they don’t deem the legal bit necessary to prove their commitment to each other.

 

What Do You Say During the Ceremony?

As with all celebrant ceremonies, anything goes.

You can write your own vows or promises to each other.

The rest of the ceremony written by the Celebrant will reflect your lives together and include all you have chosen to include in your ceremony.

 

Do we need a new ring?

It’s nice during the ceremony to exchange rings, but it’s unnecessary; it doesn’t even have to be a ring.

It could be something you have chosen together to exchange, like a watch, perhaps.

What about a wedding ring tattoo?

How/where and when you have your ceremony is entirely up to you.

What you want to include in the ceremony is up to you.

A Celebrant will work alongside you to create the exact ceremony that you’re looking for.
