Life Celebrations with Ali

Once in a while
Right in the middle of an ordinary life
Love gives us a fairytale

MEET ALI

Hi, my name is Ali and I am a Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant and a Celebrant for every other Life Celebration too!

Mornings are my time for a cup of tea but come the evening it’s all about bubbles! And when it comes to my wardrobe I love sparkly high heels worn with frocks and lounge pants cos’ I’m not into suits! I love the perfume of lillies and decorations which sparkle and whilst diamonds are a girls best friend, this girl wears pearls.

I live with my husband and two moggies in a welcoming home nestled on a typically hilly street lined with jacarandas in Paddington, Brisbane. When visitors call it’s highly likely I’ll greet them bare foot at my front gate and once comfortably seated inside serve my guests home made deliciousness and iced tea.

Having lived north, west and east in this vast country my community of family & friends represent the colours of the rainbow and one of my greatest roles in life is that of Aunty Ali. I try to live life as well as I can displaying kindness and consideration to others and as a Celebrant officiating life celebrations is a privilege and joy.

I live with my husband and two moggies in a welcoming home nestled on a typically hilly street lined with jacarandas in Paddington, Brisbane. When visitors call it's highly likely I’ll greet them barefoot at my front gate and once comfortably seated inside serve my guests homemade deliciousness and iced tea.

Whether standing in a mesmerising chapel or barefoot on a beach my Duty of Care is to officiate as the appointed Marriage Celebrant on your wedding day, solemnising the marriage and effortlessly delivering the ceremony of your wishes. And as crucial to a wedding day as the not forgetting the rings, I will properly prepare all the necessary legal paper work too.

Congratulations! The best decision you ever made was to “swipe right”.

There is no denying Love is Love and just as the setting and mood for a marriage proposal is personal so too each marriage ceremony I write shall be personalised to capture the expressions of love a couple share for each other. From city to coast, bush to beach no matter the time or place of marriage, the ceremony I create will include all the necessary legals and will tell a story of love with the promises, pledges and vows the couple have chosen to share in the company of two witnesses and any invited guests. Whether you are standing in stilettos or barefoot on a beach I promise to deliver a service designed to capture the oohs and ahhs worthy of celebrating marriage!

Life is one long dress rehearsal!

For some couples a Commitment Ceremony celebrating a life long partnership of trust and loyalty is all the official acknowledgment they need. From an informal backyard setting to a formal black tie event I will deliver a commitment ceremony to capture the special bond a couple express with promises, pledges and personal vows and with a commemorative signing certificate too but without the binding legals and paper work of a marriage ceremony. A commitment ceremony where every guest is present in the couple’s many moments as they celebrate their unwavering commitment to each other.

What are you waiting for let’s Celebrate!

Renewal of vows!

Often acknowledging a significant milestone in marriage and with a nod to the past and a desire for the future, a Renewal of Vows Ceremony celebrates a married couple's journey in love thus far. Designed to applaud the story of a meaningful marriage giving voice to special life moments no matter the content with renewed promises, pledges and personal vows. A Renewal of Vows Ceremony gives new expression to original vows; an excuse to exchange new rings, satisfies a desire to invite who you like, provides an opportunity for your children to be present; gives preference to wear what you wish; affirms new promises, pledges and vows celebrating a marriage of significant achievements and experiences!

Life Celebrations with Ali comes full circle with Farewell and Memorial ceremonies designed with empathy and sincerity.

As a Marriage Celebrant and Celebrant for every other life occasion too, I am invested in delivering ceremonies for loved ones no matter what stage of life. Whilst not an obvious truth many Marriage Celebrants are Funeral Celebrants too. Generally the Funeral Home will engage the services of a Celebrant on their books, one whom they believe is well matched to the family circumstances. Alternatively you can make a personal request for a Celebrant you know to conduct the funeral ceremony.

I will create a farewell or memorial ceremony giving time for reflection and honouring great love; mentioning the positive influence of family and friends; acknowledging personal achievements and challenges; delighting in details of great exploitations and adventures, hobbies and passions and above all capturing all those personal anecdotes and little idiosyncracies which create a living memory and give a sense of calmness and relief to the immediate grief.

As a Funeral Celebrant I shall deliver a ceremony which honours the whole of a Life Well Lived.
