My name is Gillian Potter and I am an Authorised Civil Celebrant.

I believe that your wedding day is a very special event in your lives so I will bring to your ceremony a sincere sense of celebration, joy, fun and romance. I will work with you to create a unique, memorable and perfect ceremony – Just for You.

“Gillian, we would like to thank you for helping us create our special day. Everybody commented on how beautiful and special the ceremony was. You are a fantastic celebrant and we can’t thank you enough for making our day so wonderful. Thanks.” (Jess and Dan)

“…you made us both feel that everything would be perfect and under control and it was. Thank you.” (Ben and Clare)

How do we work together to create a marriage ceremony ‘just for you’?
We will meet up to three times – an initial interview, a planning meeting and a meeting to confirm exactly what you will have as your marriage ceremony.

We will have a rehearsal at the venue in the week prior to your marriage ceremony to make sure that it will all be perfect.

I will:

  • give you many ideas to consider for your ceremony, including vows, rituals, music, readings and venues, should you need them
  • provide a PA system if needed
  • provide a table and two chairs for signing of the Register, if needed
  • give you a presentation copy of your marriage ceremony to keep
  • lodge all required legal documentation within 48 hours of your ceremony.

Where do I work?
Almost anywhere! I will travel up to 100kms from Adelaide as part of my standard fee or further by negotiation even to a romantic overseas destination – whatever works Just for You.

I delight in the beauty of working in gardens, parks, by waterfalls, in vineyards, function centres, chapels, on the beach and in private homes.

Why choose me?
I am highly professional – well spoken, well dressed, very organised, totally reliable and a person of great integrity.

I write a beautiful and unique ceremony for you. I am an experienced writer and public speaker so you will not be embarrassed by poor content, grammar or presentation.

I make you feel as though you are my only couple. I value you, your ideas, your dreams, your culture, your commitment to each other and I am sensitive to family and religious needs.

I undertake only one ceremony per day so that there is no room for error. I arrive early to make sure that all is perfect for you and stay until the background music through my PA system is no longer required.

I care deeply that your day will be wonderfully memorable for you and your guests.

I can connect you with professional musicians, a graphic designer for your printed material and a floral artist to do your bouquets if you need this help.

I am a registered member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants (AFCC).
