Meet Southwest Civil Celebrant Christine Gordon

A Q&A with Christine Gordon - Civil Marriage Celebrant

I have always wanted to be a civil celebrant and now with my children at an independent age I decided to look into training to become a celebrant, the course I did took me a year to do and alongside that I did a small business training course as well. I finished my training and I have six weddings coming up in the near future. Very excited.

So as you can see I am the new chick on the block but come armed with fresh training, fresh ideas and a healthy enthusiasm, also being a born romantic is a great help.

My favourite part of being a celebrant is listening to the couple re-tell their very personal love story and to put that story into words. The couples I have met usually have very little idea (understandably) about how a wedding ceremony is conducted or the order of the service, they are usually very surprised when I tell them that there are only a few legal obligations and the rest of the ceremony is entirely up to them.

Do I get nervous? Time will tell. I think the key to that is to practise, practise and practise every ceremony until you nearly know it word for word. The rehearsal is a must and that will hopefully iron out any potential hiccups and nerves.

The South West is alive with potential wedding locations, from the tall trees and hills to the magnificent beaches we have, take your pick, alongside the wineries, historical homesteads and beautiful countryside. Having grown up surfing in Esperance the entire South West has a special place in my heart.

I offer fresh ideas and I am very focused in offering couples what they want for their special day. I am willing to travel to any location in the South West. Whether your wedding is traditional, spiritual, medieval, pagan, it is your day and your choice.
