WONDERFUL!! You are planning to be married!! I focus on personalising your marriage ceremony, based on our 2-way discussions, so your ceremony reflects the wonder of your Love. Our first meeting is free of charge - do call me.

 "Your ceremony, created with you, to mirror your love and vision"

My Warmth, Humour, Love of Life, Gentle Guidance and Encouragement, Flair, Inclusiveness, Understanding are evident in my work.

My six years experience in celebrating weddings have been such wonderful opportunities - creating their ceremony with so many couples, each so individual, with their own expression of love, and decision to take their close relationship into marriage.

My background of teaching, both children at school in Sydney, and adults learning English as a foreign language, has heightened my sensitivity and 2-way communication skiils.

I have experience in working with interpreters, and have some Italian and French language myself.

So, too, working with the parents of children with autism for over ten years, listening, talking, and laughing with them, gave me the opportunity and affirmed my belief in the importance of instinctively including the diversity of the community in my work.

I organised Pampering Days for parents and grandparentsof children with a disability, fathers'evenings, and spoke at conferences  - speakingso  with small and larger groups at wedding ceremonies comes easily, and I enjoy it!

My flexibility ensures that however, wherever you choose to celebrate your marriage, I promise it will be wonderfully successful!


I am fortunate to have one of the most rewarding professions - working with couples and families to create a ceremony that fulfils their ideals, and allows them to express their love as they wish, at a time that's appropriate in their relationship. Your ceremony, created with you, to mirror your love and vision ...

Everyone is, of course, unique. So too, are you ... at an exciting stage in your life.

Recognising this individuality, I focus on encouraging the couple or family to participate in their own ceremony however they may wish. Flexibility is vital to ensure each ceremony meets the ideals and ideas of those taking this significant step.

My totally inclusive approach is reflected in my work.

I have experience working with people from non-English speaking backgrounds. So too, in working with interpreters and people with some form of disability and their communities.

** With this philosophy, I believe my work has the happiest conclusions for everyone! **

Absolutely! No problem!

For Marriages, only: One legal form, 'Notification of Intention to Marry', must be completed at least one month before the wedding.

Details required eg. family names and passport numbers can be sent to me, email is fine. I just need signature and to personally sight some original papers eg. passports, before the Ceremony.

The same applies when two non-Australian citizens, also not living in Australia, wish to be married here.

Most definitely! I encourage people to personalise their ceremonies as much as they choose. Vows, particularly, take on a very special meaning. I have suggestions to guide you in this, should you wish. Legally, however, there is also a vow that each person must say exactly in their marriage promise: 'I call upon the persons here present to witness that I (Name) take thee (Name) to be my lawful wedded 'husband/wife/spouse.'

Of course. The more a ceremony is personal and relevant to those involved, the more meaningful it is.

Certainly, I welcome the opportunity to work with interpreters. My professional background includes significant time with communities of cultural and linguistic diversity.

Certainly. While I am a civil Celebrant, so ceremonies are not based on religion, I am only too happy to incorporate religious elements as you may wish. Some choose to have faith-based readings, songs, or blessings. Some couples include wedding rituals and symbols, eg. some candle ceremonies, which may have a religious representation for them.

If someone objects to a wedding... what do you do?

I know most people leave this part out... right? But if it did happen, what would you do? :)

Simply Love Celebrant - Pauline Hunter-Knight

This is an unhappy element to a joyous decision and Ceremony! - obviously...

Sometimes you know beforehand that someone may 'object' at the wedding, or indeed fear that they might.

In a Marriage Ceremony taken by your Celebrant, this is not included by law, and indeed rarely included anyway, unless the couple particularly ask for it. You will not!

You just have to believe in your love, and the power of it shared by all your other friends and family there - be it a very small, or larger wedding.

As a Celebrant, I would simply acknowledge the person objecting, and continue - 'that we are here to legally celebrate your evident love for each other, and to welcome you into Marriage.'

I think it's important to talk about any fears or relevant situations with your Celebrant, beforehand. There's no doubt that if you discuss potential worries, it often lessens your stress.

Your Celebrant will support you in every way.

Why do you have to kiss at the wedding ceremony?

Does it actually serve a purpose or is it just a thing people do...?

Simply Love Celebrant - Pauline Hunter-Knight

Hi Hayley, congratulations on your plans for marriage! Every wedding ceremony is unique to each couple. Apart from a. Few legal requirements, which your Celebrant explains to you, the rest of the Ceremony is there to be personalised as you and your partner wish. It's great, in fact essential when your Ceremony is evolving, to be thinking in- depth about meaning and content. Kissing at the Ceremony, traditionally after you are legally 'man and wife' is a popular Western custom, reflecting this. Many other rituals, including each pouring a vial of sand into the same container, holding hands, drinking from the same chalice, gently having ribbons bind your hands together...or ones you create with your Celebrant, are there to meet your own vision of your Ceremony - such is the key for personalising your Marriage.

If you would like to discuss your Wedding Ceremony further with me, I'd be only too happy to do so,

Can we get married in Australia if we are not citizens?

Hi there, I am wondering if you can help me. Myself and my partner are currently residing in Canberra but we are not Australian citizens, we are English citizens, we are here on two year working visas. We are due to get married back in England in December but in order to make it 'legal' we have been advised that we have to get married officially here first. As we will be here on our own we only want something very small and personal, basically it's just to allow us to get married in the uk. Sorry if I have confused you as I appreciate it's a bit complicated but if you could let me know your thoughts it would be much appreciated xx

Simply Love Celebrant - Pauline Hunter-Knight

First, there is absolutely no problem about your both being non-Australian citizens, and being able to legally marry here.

There is equally no problem about personalising a very simple ceremony for you both.

You would need to produce your passports, and if either of you have been married before, evidence of the reason eg. Death of your spouse, or divorce.

With your Celebrant, you would complete a Notice of Intention to Marry. this needs to be legally submitted between 18 months and 1 month before the Ceremony.

***However, if you are married under Australian law, and remain so, you would not be able to marry again in England. This is because Australian marriages are recognised as legal in England, just as authorised Marriages in England are recognised as such in Australia.

I would appreciate your telling me some more information about the situation andwhy it has been suggested you would need to be married here, in order to be legally married in Australia.

I would be more than happy to clarify the matter for you.

Warmest wishes on your plans to be married!
