There are basically two types of Commitment Ceremonies. Sometimes it is between a man and a woman, who for one reason or another decide not to get married but want to have a celebration of the bond of love between them. They want to show their family and friends that they love each other and a commitment ceremony allows to happen.
Other times it can a same sex relationship, which at the moment with the current laws in most states and territories of Australia it is not yet a legal commitment - it is however an ethical one. A commitment to a loved one is a one of the most meaningful moments in a person's life. And regardless of your sex, age or cultural background I would love to work with you to create a cherished moment in your life.
Some couples decide to celebrate this commitment with a simple private ceremony. Others decide to have a large celebration to ask their family, friends and co-workers to come together to recognize the relationship.
Please note - there are no legal benefits to having a Commitment Ceremony. The difference is that rather than being a legally binding ceremony, it is simply a public affirmation of a couples commitment to one another.
A commitment ceremony is usually less formal. However this is a choice you make with the options available. The makeup of the ceremony will depend on your own preferences.
