In this world of fresh ideas and newer ways of doing things people often still appreciate the comforting familiarity of rituals, such as in weddings, funerals, naming ceremonies and other celebrations. Monash-trained Civil Celebrants are experts in creating ceremonies which combine the desire for comforting tradition or ritual with the needs of our ever-changing community.
All full-members of CCGA have completed the highly regarded Graduate Diploma in Civil Ceremonies at Monash University - Australia's premier Civil Celebrant training course. That training gives them an extensive knowledge of suitable literature, poetry and music for all ceremonial occasions, as well as the law relating to marriage. Monash-trained celebrants are to be found in every Australian state and Territory except (currently) the Northern Territory.
As experts in a range of ceremonies our members can help find the right words for your event. We aim to give clients the highest standard of service over a range of ceremonial needs, and attention to detail is a hallmark of our craft.
Whether you are looking for a Marriage or Funeral Celebrant, or a Celebrant for any other type of ceremonial event, a Monash Celebrant has the knowledge, the training and the skills to meet your needs.
Monash Celebrants always aim for their ceremonies to begin well, but one of our members says it would not have been possible to plan a better start than this.
The wedding was a small one in the garden of a family home. The couple had obviously tried to explain to their 3 year old daughter what ‘getting married’ meant, but perhaps with only partial success. As the ceremony was about to begin she called out to her mother “Mummy, am I going to marry a Prince?” “Yes dear” was the reassuring reply. “When?” “When you’re older dear”. The three year old looked down at her lovely new dress and then, almost in tears, at her Mum; “But my dress won’t fit”.
It was a truly delightful way to begin a wonderful family celebration.
