Tottie Goldsmith | Civil Celebrant

It is a true honor to be a part of such a profound and fun time in people’s lives. I am a self-confessed romantic and simply adore being in the presence of two people who are so connected that they know they want to share their lives with each other. Mix this with my experience in radio, my extensive work as a Master of Ceremonies and my years as a live performer, I am completely at home in this role.

I take such pride in helping you create a ceremony that represents who you are and what you believe in. It is deep in my nature to help put you at ease so you can have fun and enjoy this profound and delicious day. I will work with you as a resource and help you identify ways to express your values and individual style to create your perfect ceremony. I will explain all you need to know inn legal terms and will be available for you discuss ideas and help turn them into a reality and I am proud to say that not one of my ceremonies are the same because no two couples are the same.
Of course we will also need to work inline with legal requirements and I will need to sight evidence of Identification. We will need to complete a ‘Notice of Intended Marriage’ at least one month prior to the wedding day and I will take care of all other legal paper work and lodge it on your behalf. If you are a same-sex couple and ‘Same Sex Marriage’ has not yet been made legal, we will have a commitment ceremony that reflects the depth, love and importance of any marriage. We will have a rehearsal prior to the day so you can focus on being present and simply look into the eyes of the person you love. Apart from all of the legal wording, the ceremony is yours and will reflect your hearts and your values.

I look forward to working with you and please let me know if I can expand on any of this information or if you have any queries at all.

Warmest and happiest regards,

Tottie Goldsmith CMC
