Inspiring Weddings - individualised to create perfection. Your day of happiness remembered for a lifetime.

I am an established celebrant who is dedicated to providing and facilitating a professional, sincere and warm ceremony ensuring your requirements and needs are catered for. Formal or casual/happy to include children if desired.

My aim is to work with you to design a unique ceremony, ensuring that everything flows with ease, so that together we create a ceremony which will reflect your ´personal essence´, ideals and philosophies of what marriage means to you.

In a relaxing yet professional manner I ensure the ceremony on "the day" captures the happy moment in your hearts forever. The process up to and including the wedding day should be comfortable and relaxed. The ceremony itself should be of high quality and have that ´personal´ touch meant for you and you alone. Additional ceremonies such as Butterfly, Sand, Rose, Hand-Fasting and Ring-Warming (etc!) ceremonies may be added to the ´core´ ceremony.

My services encompass the following:

  Both hetrosexual & same gender couples
• Unlimited contact by telephone / email.
• Flexible appointments.
• Provision, preparation and processing of all legal documentation.
• Ceremony individualised to reflect your sentiments and values.
• Suggestions for Ceremony proceedings.
• Cordless PA System provided.
• Rehearsal (if required) at a mutually convenient time.
• Coordinating dress wear to complement the bridal party.
• Ceremony keepsake to remember with joy for years to come.
• Lodgement of legal documentation for Registration.
• Affiliation with the Civil Marriage Celebrants Association of SA (Inc) thus ensuring a back-up facility.
• Renewal of Vows, Commitment, Naming & Funeral Services

I would be honoured to be invited to facilitate your wedding ceremony. I feel it is vitally important you are comfortable with the celebrant, to ensure a rewarding journey for all.


I've been a Celebrant since 2005 and have been privileged to officiate for many weddings over the years giving me very diversified experiences. My early background has been in administration, underwriting, personal assistant, PR, communications and lastly working with children in a Montessori Pre-school for 20 years. I have also done extensive volunteer work and am a Reiki & Seichim Master.

Working with Janine was an absolute delight! From the moment we met, her warmth and genuine interest in making our special day uniquely ours shone through. Her dedication to crafting a ceremony that truly reflected our love story was evident in every detail. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and it showed in the personalised touches woven throughout the ceremony. Her words were beautifully crafted, capturing the essence of our relationship and sharing it with our loved ones. What truly set Janine apart was her ability to balance professionalism with a personal touch. She managed to make everyone feel included and engaged, creating an atmosphere that was not just celebratory but deeply meaningful. Janine’s calming presence and reassuring guidance were invaluable, especially during the planning process. Janine went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of the ceremony felt authentic and aligned with our values. Our day wouldn't have been the same without her, and we're forever grateful for the beautiful memories Janine helped create. If you're looking for someone who genuinely cares about making your day extraordinary, Janine is an absolute gem! Thank you so much Janine. Lorinda and Timothy

Can I have sample Christian vows for a couple who choose not to be married?

We just want some kind of "pledge" to have.

Janine Gilland - Civil Marriage Celebrant

Hello - thank you for your question!

I hope the following is of assistance for you ..

The most traditional Christian vows would be the following, however as it is NOT ACTUALLY A WEDDING the words would have to be adapted e.g. Today I take you to be my heartfelt soul mate/partner - removing "wedded husband/wife" etc :

 "I, ___, take thee, ___, to be my wedded husband/wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God's holy ordinance; and thereto I pledge thee my faith [or] pledge myself to you."

Warm wishes,

Janine Gilland, Civil Marriage Celebrant.

My parents think I am too young for marriage. What can I do?

Janine Gilland - Civil Marriage Celebrant

That is a very difficult question for a Celebrant to answer as it is such a personal point of view. Perhaps compromise by both parties would be wise - alternatively I suggest you seek the advice a professional counsellor who may be able to assist with a favourable outcome for all. There are many available the various organisations which are cost effective & through Government websites.

I hope this assists you in some way.

Warm wishes, Janine Gilland - Civil Marriage Celebrant.

What are wedding vows?

Janine Gilland - Civil Marriage Celebrant

Hello - I hope the following is of assistance to you.

Wedding vows are a time honoured tradition & lifelong promise you give to each other on your wedding day - they are a defining part of your ceremony. Vows express the intent, promises & potential of marriage built on love, faithfulness & the depth of commitment to one another.

There is a legal sentence which is required to be said (as laid down by the Marriage Act 1961) followed by your personal choice or selection of words. Your Celebrant should guide you every step of the way with this - you have the choice of repeating them after the Celebrant, reading off a cue card or memorising what you wish to say. 

Warm wishes,  Janine Gilland, CMC
