Warm regards from  Barbara Beames Wedding Celebrant


I have two naughty cats Molly and Bella and a crazy family. I am the owner of this business. I just love weddings; I love to see the happiness on the faces of the bride and groom and all the guests. I see happy tears all around most weddings. They are a good sign. The one who cry's the most is often the groom. Barbara

You must book your wedding celebrant at least one month ahead and no longer than eighteen months away from your wedding.  It is a really good idea to contact me sooner than later as some wedding dates on the calendar book up very quickly.  A big congratulations from me about getting married!  I would love to be a part of your special day. leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.  How exciting for you both.  Barbara. 

No, if you have a birth's certificate and a drivers licence that will be fine.

Yes of course you can, I can give you a sheet of vows as a guide to get you started.

Yes there are many ways you can involve everyone, you can have someone take you down the aisle, hold the rings, do a reading just for a start.

Yes a rehearsal is included in the price, they can be a lot of fun.

Barbara was beyond amazing to have as our celebrant!! My husband and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else! Neither my husband or I had ever been married before, nor gone to many weddings, we weren’t sure what to expend! When we had our first meeting with Barbara, she explained everything to us and offered many great things we could include in our ceremony (which we didn’t even think of or knew you could do but we are beyond glad we included them! Barbara wrote out everything for us and took out the stress of worrying about the ceremony (organising the reception was hard enough!) Barbara was extremely helpful, she offered a rehearsal which we are so glad we did! Barbara was so calm and excited and explained everything we felt so at ease! Even our bridal party felt comfortable and more relaxed as Barbara helped us all! Highly recommend !!!!

Wow, thank you for such beautiful words Nikki. You were a fantastic couple to work with from day one. I love hearing all about your lovely plans for your wedding day. We had a fun rehearsal, everything was ready. Then on the morning of your wedding it was all clouded over and brisk. Then just before your wedding the clouds blew away and the sun came out to see you get married in front of your friends and family. Nikki you looked sensational in that dress and veil. Your husband teared up the minute you all started coming down the aisle. Perfect day, glad to be a part of it. Happy future awaits!!

April 2023

We had Barbara as our celebrant for our legal ceremony, we decided to have our wedding overseas but had the paperwork organised through Barbara. She was very friendly and easy to contact, would reply to my emails almost instantly and made the process super simple. Even though we only requested for a simple ceremony, Barbara managed to make it very meaningful and romantic.


Barbara Beames Friendly Celebrant

Hello Gabrielle, thank you so much for your lovely words. I am glad you liked the little touches I added to your service to make it special even though it was very short and sweet. You looked beautiful in that lovely white off the shoulder dress and your veil was just stunning. Thank you for taking the time to write this review, good luck for your future together, Barbara.

March 2023

Barbara was amazing, she made it easy to talk about what both my husband and myself wanted in our celebrant and vows. Barbara was very open to our ideas, listened to what we both wanted for our wedding and never tried to push any extras into our celebration. Barb was very professional, but also has an amazing sense of humour and definitely makes you feel relaxed. 100% recommend using Barbara.

Thank you Cathy for such lovely words. I remembered the first time I met you both in my office you stated that you wanted something simple and no fuss! I think we achieved that as well as some special little touches that you both loved. Your dress was just gorgeous, fitted all the way down with gorgeous lace! All the best from, Barbara

We met with Barbara with short notice and she didn't have much time to prepare but she did fantastic. She was very accommodating, communication was very efficient. We had a wonderful and personalised ceremony.

Jessica and Dylan thank you for your lovely review. Your wedding was just beautiful and so rustic out in the country in Trafalgar. You looked so beautiful Jessica in that lovely gown. Dylan eyes were full of tears of happiness when you were saying your vows. So glad to be part of such a beautiful family watching you both getting married. All the best for your future Barbara.

I am a terrible public speaker. How can I get ready for my wedding ceremony?

Hi there. Was hoping for some advice on how to tackle ceremony nerves so I can get through my vows. I really want to write my own vows but have always been terrible at speaking in front of crowds. What can I do ahead of time and on the day?

Barbara Beames Friendly Celebrant

What you can do ahead of time is write your vows out on a card and say them out loud in front of the mirror.  Do this often so you get used to the sound of your own voice.  Then have a practise with your family or friends.  

A good celebrant with have your vows also written into her service so if you are unable to say them (which has happened) because you might become overwhelmed with emotion she will be able to say them for you.

Also a good celebrant will give you a couple of seconds to compose yourself if this happens.

That is a brave thing to do and I commend you doing and reading out your own vows.

At my wedding I couldn't do that as I was so nervous I was glad to follow the celebrant.

See how you go on the day, don't stress too much as your celebrant should be ready and comforting for you should you be unable to do so.

Good luck and have a great wedding

What should we be asking potential celebrants to make sure they're a good fit for us?

What are some of the things we need to consider or ask of a potential celebrant before we decide which one to go with?

Barbara Beames Friendly Celebrant

I think a good question to ask a celebrant is  how they can make your wedding personal and unique.  Every couple are different and a good celebrant will be able to make the service about the couple and their love for each other.  There are many ways of doing this, ask the question and she how the answer fits with you both, congratulations on getting married, Barbara Beames Wedding Celebrant Berwick


How can I tell my sister her kids aren't invited to our wedding?

Hi there. We don't want to have kids at our wedding, but I also don't want to offend my sister. I adore my nieces but we want a particular vibe at our wedding. Any suggestions?

Barbara Beames Friendly Celebrant

Hi there, this is a good quetion and a bit of a tricky one.

You say that you dont't want kids at your wedding and you don't want to offend your sister.  And, you also say that you want a particular vibe at your wedding.

I have had this a lot lately, my couples want to go "retro wedding" like back to the future, what is old is new again.  By this I mean that a lot of my couples want to take a couple of things back that worked really well in the past.

One of the most popular new but old trends are that the guests are encouraged to be present totally at the wedding service so they can experience the words of the wedding as well as the beautiful sights they will see.  So, they are encouraged to turn their mobile phones off or on silent.

This way they are totally present watching a lovely couple make a beautiful commitment to each other, right in front of them.

This works extremely well.  They embrace it totally and at end of the service at the signing they are welcomed up to take as many photo's that they wish to.

Similiarly, years ago there were no children at a wedding ceremony.  This was for a number of reasons but mostly it was so the guests once again can be totally present at the wedding and the reception.  THey can experience the joy of the couple getting married and the reception with them.
