Beautiful civil ceremonies are just the beginning with Sharon Bonthuys from Bespoke By Bonthuys Civil Ceremonies. With 18 years' experience, Sharon has conducted weddings and other ceremonies across two states and a territory, working in some of the most remote locations in Australia. Now she is providing her services in the wider Dubbo region and looks forward to helping you have a beautiful day.

Well, hello! Thanks for stopping by.

The beauty of getting married in Australia is that you have so much choice. You can choose whether you marry in a religious ceremony in church, a registry office or courthouse, or in the location of your choice with a civil celebrant. 

That choice also extends to how long your ceremony is (or isn't, if that is your wish), how you involve others in your wedding, and the rituals and readings that you may wish to incorporate (or not). 

There are many traditions in Australian weddings that aren't actually legal requirements - did you know?  I can tell you all about them.

If you choose me as your celebrant for your special day, I'll work with you to create the ceremony you want to have. That's the beauty of a bespoke (custom-created) ceremony. It's all about choice. As long as the legal requirements are included, you can marry in any way that you wish.

And that's why my business is called Bespoke By Bonthuys

I offer three packages:

  • Bespoke Weddings with all the Bells and Whistles
  • Bespoke Elopements
  • Bespoke on a Budget Weddings.

Information booklets explaining what is provided for these ceremonies are available. 

I'd love to hear from you - please get in touch and let's talk about you and what you'd like to do for your special day.

All the best,

Sharon

Feedback from some of my couples:

“I cannot recommend Sharon highly enough. The personal touches Sharon adopted made the day about us and exactly how we wanted. having a big family, Sharon was full of ideas of ways I can incorporate not only my large family but my parents with mobility issues.” — Wendy

  

“I cannot speak highly enough of Sharon! She is exceptional and very professional. Sharon was the celebrant at our wedding. She made the day extra special for us and our guests by catering for our individual needs and guiding us through all the steps we had to take before, during and after the ceremony!” — Panos

Questions and Answers

I need to marry quickly - is that possible?

Bespoke By Bonthuys

There is a process to follow if you need to marry under the month-long notice period. I can help you with this but I cannot guarantee permission will be granted as that comes from a 'prescribed authority' that has the final say. If you need this, let's talk!

What style of dress will you wear for our event?

Bespoke By Bonthuys

I dress to compliment your wedding party and theme colours. This may be formal, informal, or anywhere inbetween. Part of my planning involves asking you about your theme colours so I can 'fit in' with the wedding party. If you would like me to wear a specific colour, let me know. For formal weddings I will wear a a cocktail-style dress; for informal weddings I will talk to you about how you would like me to appear on the day. I guarantee I will be fully clothed!

Is it a legal requirement to exchange rings in a wedding?

Bespoke By Bonthuys

No, it's not a legal requirement. If you don't want to exchange rings you don't have to. There are other rituals you can use instead - if desired - including handfasting, a blessing of the hands and more. Lots of things you see in weddings have their origin in Hollywood - I can talk you through what is legal, what is traditional, and what is optional in weddings.

I am afraid of standing in front of our guests on the day. I'm so nervous I want to vomit. How do I get through my wedding ceremony?

Bespoke By Bonthuys

I can work with you to develop a structure that reduces the pressure on you during the ceremony so that you can enjoy this special time - as you should. This may involve positioning you so that you're not facing your guests, using chairs, limiting what you have to say in the ceremony, and even developing ways of entering and exiting that don't appear to your guests to be anything but just a 'different' way of doing things. I've done this before and the strategies employed have worked well.

My partner is overseas and we are applying for a visa. Can you help us with the paperwork?

Bespoke By Bonthuys

As a celebrant, all I can do in this regard is supply a supporting letter and a copy of the Notice of Intended Marriage that has been completed, signed and lodged by the party who is in Australia. I am not a licenced migration agent and therefore am unable to provide any advice or guidance in this respect. There is a link to the professional body for migration agents (MARA) on my website.
