This is a popular image of the Roman Goddess Juno seated. From an imperial Roman silver statuette collection atf the Petite Palais Paris. Ancients considered the month of June, which is named after this goddess Juno, the patroness of marriage, to be the most favourable time to marry. Locally it is certainly a popular time to marry with moderate weather favourable for an afternoon ceremony & reception.
The interwoven continuous lines of the Celtic love knot symbolise the eternity of love and the journey of two lovers through life together.
If you are seeking a marriage celebrant to perform a wedding ceremony in Grafton, Yamba, Maclean or elsewhere in the Clarence Valley my availability is indicated on the calendar below. This calendar is for June 2011, other months can be accessed from the menu above or advanced through with the navigation arrows below. If you are planning your wedding for one of the more popular month you may need to book your wedding celebrant some time in advance, perhaps more than a year. I only perform one wedding ceremony per day, sometimes I may be able to perform a morning naming ceremony on the same day as I have an afternoon wedding ceremony to perform. If my calendar indicates I am booked I may be able to recommend another marriage celebrant, please contact me.

On Saturday the 5th June I was privileged to officiate at the wedding of Carol & Mitch at Sandon Bluff. The weather cleared to a beautiful afternoon with perfect blue sky, a breeze and plenty of sunshine. The view was spectacular, a perfect setting for the casual wedding Carol & Mitch had hoped for. Mitch had proposed to Carol in this location and they wanted to hold the wedding ceremony there as Sandon holds a special place in their hearts. Mitch was attended by four groomsmen all in matching Havianas. Carol looked stunning in her wedding gown and veil as did her four beautiful bridesmaids, one had travelled from Japan to be with Carol on her special day. The four young ring bearers looked so cute in their little cream suits, they were admired by all present. This was an amazing wedding, one I will never forget and I thank the happy couple for choosing me as their Celebrant.
