Themed Wedding Ceremonies
Dare to be Different | Tim Manger (Civil Marriage Celebrant)

As a Civil Celebrant, Tim can officiate your wedding dressed in costume, as well as tailor your entire ceremony wording (apart from the actual legal requirements), to match your theme. Tim's (current) most popular guises include; Elivs Presley, Darth Vader, and the Grim Reaper.

Themed wedding ceremonies are for adventurous couples who want to get married under the guise of their favorite movie, fairytale, book, musical or period in history. These types of marriage ceremonies are a great deal of fun, and may involve your entire bridal party and guest list wearing costumes (although [often] it is just the celebrant who is in costume).
