CommitmentsA commitment ceremony is a public declaration of life-long commitment, love and dedication between two people. The occasion can be shared with family and friends. You may include poetry, music and readings that hold a special meaning for you.
A commitment ceremony is a significant event in your life. It is a way of celebrating the union of people wishing to share their lives together.
Commitment ceremonies mean many different things to different people.

  • It can be like a wedding, with all the trimmings, but as it is not legally binding there is no marriage certificate.
  • It can be the most alternative event imaginable.
  • It can be a ritual to bless your relationship, or an intimate exchange between just you and your partner.
  • It can be a family rite of passage to strengthen the bonds between parents and children in a new stepfamily.

Whatever your choice in ceremony, style and presentation, I am happy to work with you to design a personal, meaningful ceremony.
Commitment ceremonies may be performed for same sex couples or traditional couples who do not wish to legally marry.
Same sex relationships may be registered in Tasmania.

Tasmania's relationship laws recognise a wide range of different personal relationships.
These include mixed-sex and same-sex couples. Tasmania's relationship laws allow all couples to register their relationships with the Tasmanian Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

Couples are able to lodge a Deed of Relationship for registration in exactly the same way that marriages are registered. Partners in a registered relationship must be Tasmanian residents and adults.

This means residing in Tasmania for at least six months and being 18 years of age or over.
