For an intimate and romantic ceremony
Caroline Jackson - Voted one of Queensland’s Top Celebrants
After one phone call, it’s easy to see why
Congratulations! You've decided to Marry.
Your Ceremony of Marriage is your opportunity to share with family and friends your love and commitment to each other in a way that is meaningful to you both.
This is a commitment of love. Under the current laws in most states and territories of Australia it is not yet a legal commitment.
A commitment to a loved one, which can be shared with family and friends is a one of the most meaningful moments in a person’s life. In addition, regardless of your sex, age, or cultural background I would love to work with you to create a cherished moment in your life.
On Wednesday 15th November 2017, the Australia people voted that the marriage act of 1961 should be changed to read the uniting of two people instead of man and woman. I was a one of those people who voted YES.
When this becomes law, (which it will do very soon) I would love to be part of your very special day and put a beautiful ceremony together for you, and to help arrange your ceremony and deliver your perfect wedding.
As a full time Marriage Celebrant, my aim is to give you the ceremony, which both your family and friends will love, and talk about for years to come, as the best wedding that they have ever been too.
Love doesn’t end with dying
Or leave with the last breath.
For someone you have loved dearly,
Love goes on forever
Saying good bye to someone you love is never easy so a personal funeral ceremony for a close friend or family member can be a lovely way to say good bye.
Should a funeral ceremony be sad? I don’t think so, it should be a celebration of the life that has been, however old or young or how someone’s life has ended.
After the loss of a loved one you will go though many stages of grief, I belive in listening to people and have been trained to assist those, who are going through such emotional time in their lives.
I conduct a non religious ceremony which is personalised in a way that you and your loved ones are comfortable with and which truly reflects the individuality of the deceased. I will work closely with you and your family members and you and they may even like to take part in the ceremony.
If you would like me to perform a ceremony for you, you can contact me direct, or have your funeral director contact me with your plans, including the date and time of the funeral and where it will take place.
A funeral ceremony should be a happy event, as it is a celebration of life, and how that life impacted on the lives of others.
Name giving ceremonies are as old as time itself. For centuries and in different forms, people have been performing these ceremonies for the purpose of introducing a new child into the family; in many cultures, a son was not legal until his father named him in a ceremony.
Naming ceremonies as we know them today, are fairly new being non-religious and conducted by a civil celebrant, usually at the parents home, this allows the parents to affirm their love for their child in front of family and friends.
Let me personalise a name giving ceremony for your child. There are many things we can do, such as having a time capsule in which you place small gifts, photos, letters or hand written cards to be opened either on the child’s 18th or 21st birthday.
Alternatively, how about planting a tree or lighting a candle? A naming ceremony normally takes between twent and thirty minutes with poems and readings and while the ceremony has no legal status, I provide all involved with a beautiful certificate by which to remember the day, and what a wonderful way to introduce a new child into the world
No matter how long you have been married, this is a wonderful way to show and reaffirm the love you have for each other. Perhaps you never had that dream wedding in the first place and now consider it the right time to celebrate in the way you always wanted to.
I would love to work with you to create a cherished moment in your life.
My name is Caroline Jackson. As a Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant, and Tamborine Mountain’s preferred full-time Celebrant it is my pleasure, as well as my business to ensure that your wedding ceremony is one of the most memorable days of your life.
I have a lifetimes' experience of working in both the UK and Australia (I became a naturalised citizen in 1985) including within the hair and beauty industries. Working with people from all around the world has enriched my career, and this experience I bring to my role as a celebrant. I enjoy sharing that experience and knowledge, to help you plan a beautiful and unique occasion and build memories, which will last a lifetime.
I am able to officiate for, Civil Marriage, Renewal of Wedding Vows, Commitment Ceremonies, Name Giving Ceremonies, and Funerals. Whatever the occasion, I will help you to personalise the ceremony and include many memorable and culturally enriching words and acts that have special meaning for you and those you love.
I have been a celebrant for ten years and have officiated at hundreds of ceremonies. I am a past president of the Alliance of Celebrants Queensland, Queensland’s largest celebrants association and also a past board member of CoCA (The Coalition of Celebrant Associations). CoCA is a group formally recognised and acknowledged by the Attorney-General and the AGD as the most influential body for marriage celebrant associations.
I look forward to helping you plan your special day.
