Weddings

Every wedding created by Life Threads Ceremonies is professional, dynamic and engaging.  Your ceremony will please you and your guests in every way.  Guaranteed!

Red Rose, Silver Rose and Golden Rose Weddings are our specialty.  If you wish, we can custom craft a ceremony to suit your interests, location and budget perfectly.

Your love story is totally unique, and shapes the heart centre of your ceremony. How could it be any other way?   This story is beautifully shaped from your responses to the Meeting the Beloved questionnaire, and retold with warmth,  reverence and humour.

All elements of your ceremony are very carefully prepared, from the Opening Words, the rituals, to the Presentation at the end.    Each ceremony may require 25 or more hours of joyful preparation.

You have complete & final approval over every aspect of your ceremony.   Imagine how confident and relaxed you will be on your wedding day, knowing how beautifully it will unfold!

Life Threads Ceremonies is honoured to be your preferred Life Cycle Celebrant and wedding consultant from our first consultation to your big day.
