leading australian wedding & civil celebrant

Wendy HaynesQuotation MarkI love my work and have been passionate about celebrancy since I was appointed in 1995.
It's been an inspiring and rewarding journey working side by side with many couples and families creating personal, unique and heartwarming ceremonies that have touched not only the couple but everyone present. 
Whether your celebration is a wedding ceremony, name giving ceremony, funeral, birthday celebration, or any other of life's 'touchpoints', I can help you to make it unforgettable, exciting, relaxed and friendly and, most of all, fun and inspiring."Wendy Haynes Signature

Welcome Jake to the World

Ben and Sharon's sixth child was announced at the naming ceremony we held for their fifth child, Ty. That ceremony was a very special occasion not only because of Ty's naming but because Ben got down on one knee and proposed to Sharon, which had lots of people in tears... and then as if that surprise wasn't enough, they announced that they were expecting another child. Here we are eighteen months later welcoming young Jake into their family.

I arrived at 10.30am to meet with the Rann and Callander clan. I have conducted many weddings, namings and funerals for the Rann family so I had plenty to catch up on with growing children and new arrivals.   ... read more

Godparenting in the 1500's

Since we are staying in the Derbyshire Dales for a period of six months in total Roger and I have signed up for the local library. I derive such pleasure going into a large room piled high with books of all sorts.

Shelves of books on any topic … I flick through books on painting, felting, women artists, English gardens and browse through the fiction section. I get so excited, that now at last, just maybe I will have time to sit back and read a novel. I have one with me that I started in Canada but haven’t had a moment to continue with… all the visiting, travelling and day walks hasn’t left a lot of time to sit back, relax and read a good book. I have to change that! The days are so glorious for walking that it is hard to stay indoors – the cold and invigorating atmosphere make it a joy to walk and breathe in the fresh air and come home with red rosy cheeks.  ... read more
