Your wedding may include a ritual such as a unity candle ceremony. In this tradition the couple each light a small candle. The flames of the two candles are held together to light the larger candle. The bigger brighter flame which came from the two smaller flames symbolises the unity of marriage and the strength that comes from it.
The candle can be relit each anniversary.
The picture above shows two small tapers that would be used to light the large pillar candle.. Pillar candles are readily available and I have a stock of tapers. I supply a couple of extra tapers for the annual relighting.
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 March 2014, other months can be accessed from the menu above or with the navigation arrows below. If you are planning your wedding for a 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.
March is another hot and humid month here in the Clarence Valley with Graftons 50yr mean maximum temperature being 28.2 (°C). Mean 3pm temperature, a popular wedding time is 27.0 (°C). March is also a humid month with an average 3pm humidity of 59%. Average rainfall for March here is 130.0mm. Rain falls on about 11 of March's 31 days or about 1 day in 3. Afternoons are a common time for rain to fall.
If your wedding is outdoors allow for the heat. Use shade where you can and consider hats and dress cool. River breezes in Memorial Park can help & the fountain in See park seems to lower the temperature by a few degrees on a hot day.
Allow for rain and have an alternative wet weather venue. Have ushers on stand-by to redirect guests to the alternative venue and have a list of contact numbers ready.
Shaded, grassy slopes leading to the pond in See Park. This natural ampitheatre has great acoustics. I locate the PA across the pond & project across the water into the gathering.
