Bernadette Carson-Civil Marriage Celebrant

Hello and welcome to my website. I am a registered Civil Marriage Celebrant and conduct ceremonies in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and Central Coast regions.

I became appointed in 2005 and regard myself as a modern, young at heart professional who enjoys life, especially being a celebrant.  The best part of my occupation is having the opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures.  I never stop learning, expanding on my skills and what I can offer to celebrate life’s special occasions.  

I come from a welfare and hospitality background which may seem like worlds apart, but I believe they share a common link, the need to have excellent communication skills. Good communication skills are vital to translate information accurately, to help build trust and to create an environment in which we can confer openly in a relaxed atmosphere.

Celebrations, no matter what the occasion, are a wonderful way for family and friends to get together and there is nothing more inspiring than words of love and dedication expressed through ceremonies and rituals, especially at a wedding.

I consider it such a pleasure to be able to contribute to making your ceremony not only unforgettable, but also a stress free experience. Whether it's a formal, casual, large or a small event, you will receive the highest standard of service in designing something that is distinctly you.

Will your ceremony be all you hoped for?

Join me for an obligation free get together to discuss how I can help you to create a ceremony that reflects you and the occasion, a celebration of love and life delivered with flair and commitment.  

As well as Memorable Weddings I also Conduct:

Baby Naming Ceremonies:  Naming and welcoming the next generation, honouring the family matriarchs, patriarchs and appointing the child’s guardians/godparents.

Commitment Ceremonies: Either a same sex dedication or for those who are unable to, or don’t wish to legally marry. 

Renewal of Vows: Celebrating the love that bought the couple together and a dedication to their future.

Celebration of Life/Funerals: A tribute to a life well lived for all the family members, including your beloved pet: as man/woman’s best friend why should they be left out. 
Special Occasions: Such as Coming of Age, Engagements, House Blessings, Anniversaries, Retirements and Birthday Celebrations.  ​
