Trudy McGee Sunshine Coast Marriage Celebrant

Hi, my name is Trudy and I believe the mere fact that two people have fallen in love is wonderful.
So to get married, now, that’s an occasion worth celebrating.
Weddings should be the most fun ever and a day to look back on and smile and laugh.
So I’m the celebrant you hire if you want the “marriage ceremony”
to be the best and one of the most important parts of your Wedding Day. 
I've been a full-time Celebrant now for 14 yrs which gives me loads of ideas to pass on to you.
Weddings, traditionally, can just go on and on and on.
I don’t think weddings should be quick, but they should take as long as it takes to celebrate your marriage, and not a moment more. 
But everyone’s different so, rest assured, I will listen to you and deliver exactly what you are wanting for your Ceremony.
I think marriage is the best thing two people can do together so there’s no chance your Wedding Ceremony will be an irrelevant or meaningless affair. 
Give me a call to arrange a meeting. I would love to have a chat so we can work together to make your day magic.

Trudy McGee Sunshine Coast Marriage Celebrant Caloundra Wedding, Sunshine Coast

It’s a privilege to be entrusted with creating a beautiful ceremony for what can be, one of the most important life-milestone to celebrate.
I feel very lucky and touched that so many couples have put this responsibility in my hands, and I work hard to ensure that the ceremony I design for them, is a reflection of who they are, both as individuals and as a couple. 
It’s very rare these days to see the kind of raw emotion that we see at weddings, and I love it when my couples and their guests laugh and cry their way through my ceremonies.
 It’s not my thing to use a generic set of words about love and marriage.
So I’ve developed a highly successful process to ensure I can write a ceremony that is absolutely unique, personalized and meaningful.
 There are "legally required" words but the rest is completely up to you.
I will provide you with a comprehensive ceremony booklet full of ideas and suggestions that you may like to include. 
But don’t feel constrained by that, if you don’t like anything in the book we throw it out and find something else and I’m especially open to including ideas you’ve just thought up.
I will email  you drafts for review, so you’ve got the opportunity to say “seriously, don’t say that at our wedding,” or “that’s completely awesome, we love it!”
The most important thing to me is that your ceremony is everything you hoped it would be and more.
Civil Marriage Ceremonies are far outstripping the number of Church weddings because they offer couples freedom of choice.  
Once you have decided on your wedding date, it's a good idea to contact me for an appointment.

Other Services

Renewal of Vows
Often these ceremonies are associated with a special wedding anniversary but the ceremony is just as appropriate for couples at any stage. Sometimes it is relevant to those who have been through a period that puts a strain on their relationship, but who now wish to celebrate a renewed commitment to each other. In either case, you may use your original vows or I can help you choose or write new vows that perhaps are more appropriate for your life now.The ceremony follows the same format as a full wedding ceremony excluding the legal side only. As with Weddings you will receive a Certificate of Re-affirmation as a memento of the occasion together with a beautifully bound copy of the Renewal Ceremony.

Commitment Ceremonies
This ceremony is performed with the same care and attention to detail as any wedding. Even though the ceremony is not legalised at present, this is still a very meaningful event for the couple. Commitment Certificates are of course cherished by the couple as is the bound copy of the Ceremony.

Coming of Age
A Ceremony usually performed at age 13 years for both boys and girls. This can be a difficult age for some teens and is an appropriate time to recognize that they are becoming young adults and are expected to have some responsibilities which of course goes hand in hand with some new found freedom. This is cushioned by the fact that other adults family, friends or a mentor who the teen looks up to will be there for them as well as their parents. In other words, there is a network of support for them during this transitional stage of their lives. This particular Ceremony is growing in popularity as Parents are witnessing the long-term benefits of having this Ceremony for their teenagers. A Coming of Age Certificate is presented as a memento.

Namings
The Name Giving Ceremony is a non-religious alternative to the Baptismal Service. It is not meant to replace a traditional service, but is offered as an alternative to those who have no religious convictions, as well as those who do, giving the parents the opportunity to officially name and welcome the arrival of their child before their family and friends. A Certificate of Naming is given to the parents as well as Godparent Certificates. Speak to me about my lovely idea for Namings.
