Wonderful Warm Winter Weddings
Planning a wedding? Can’t decide on a date or a venue? How about stepping outside the traditional and predictable?
Think about a Wonderful Warm Winter Wedding as an exciting and innovative alternative to a marriage ceremony on a hot summer's day.
Consider a morning ceremony followed by a gourmet breakfast or brunch, a late morning ceremony followed by a delicious lunch, or even an early afternoon ceremony with a scrumptious afternoon tea to follow.
Imagine this ………
It’s a cold, crisp winter’s day at one of the stunning Adelaide Hills Boutique Wineries. The fog is swirling through the vines now dormant after the harvest. It’s quiet, beautiful, inspiring, enervating … and chilly!
Or maybe soft rain is falling enveloping the vineyard in a fine mist. Or maybe the rain is pelting down!
Or maybe you'd like to visit the Willunga Peacock Farm which I have only just recently discovered. It's a gem!
Whichever type of venue you choose, inside there’s a roaring log fire, a couple of deep, soft leather couches inviting you to curl up in them with the love of your life, sharing fine food washed down with a glass or two of your favourite wine. It might be red or white, still or bubbly.
To celebrate your marriage invite your intimate circle of friends to join you ... or not! Include them as participants ... or not! Listen to the rhythm of the rain as you hold hands, look into each other’s eyes and speak your vows of love and commitment.
My name is Merrilyn Williams. I’m an experienced and professional Civil Marriage Celebrant living and working here in the beautiful Adelaide Hills and beyond.
I can help to make an ordinary day into an extraordinary day filled with rich and lasting memories.
We work together to create your ceremony which really and truly is all about you! Share your favourite stories. Let there be laughter and tears.
Reminisce about how you met and all the important things that have happened, big and small, since you began to share your lives.
Talk about your hopes and dreams for your shared future, and then, when you’re ready, you marry each other.
It’s a wonderful way to say ‘I do.’ It’s intimate, relaxed, joyful, exciting, romantic, personal, imaginative and different, and I’m here to help you.
Of course there are legal requirements which must be fulfilled for your marriage to be legally recognised … as your celebrant, that’s my job.
Embrace the winter as a time of contemplation and rejuvenation; a time to celebrate relationships and to recognise what’s important in your life; a time to share with your nearest and dearest your joy at finding each other as you publicly declare that you will live together as marriage partners.
Your fabulous and vibrant, warm and engaging marriage ceremony is my business!
