When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

~Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally

My name is David Schneider and as a commited civil celebrant, my aim is to ensure that everything and then more, is done to make your day, that special moment that you are looking for.

Whether you are having a commitment ceremony or you and your partner are renewing your vows, this is your special day, one to be treasured and remembered.

I offer to you a personal service, from our first meeting, to the rehersal, to your memorable day.

As someone who is in your community, I look forward to helping you to celebrate your special day.

I am based in Melbourne and I am available to travel to conduct your ceremony and am happy to discuss any special features that you would like to have incorporated into the ceremony.

Please have a look around my website at the different ceremonies available. All ceremonies are personally tailored for you. I can be available at short notice, but it is preferable that you make an enquiry as soon as you think you would like a ceremony even if you do not have a date confirmed.

Commitment Ceremonies
Commitment Ceremonies

A Commitment Ceremony is a meaningful and dignified ceremony for couples. The purpose of the Ceremony is to make a public declaration of life-long commitment, love and dedication between two people. The occasion is a beautiful way for you to share with family and friends the love and commitment that you have for each other.

The Committment Ceremony will ensure you and your partner have a ceremony that expresses the love you each have for each other, tailored personally for you.

There are a range of ceremonies to help you make your day a special day and I take the time to listen to what you are wanting to express and say to each other.  I offer you as many changes to the ceremony as you need to get it just right for you.

The ceremony will be personalised according to your requirements. There are opportunities to include readings, exchange rings or gifts and to make personal vows of commitment to each other. A commitment certificate is presented to the couple at the end of the ceremony and will also be signed by both partners and 2 witnesses.

Renewal of Vows
Renewal of Vows

When you and your partner wish to renew your vows, it’s a special moment where you are re-committing to each other, and enshrining the new vows, and the continued direction forward each of you want to make together.

Naming Ceremonies

This beautiful ceremony is tailored to include those people close to you, who you want to be a special and integral part of your child’s life.
