Dior Ceremonies

To love, rejoice, and inspire

Dahlia Dior        

Along with my career as a civil celebrant, I am a Justice of the Peace, international cabaret performer who can sing in many languages, and have a Masters Degree (Hon.) in ethnomusicology.  I also teach aqua fitness, and enjoy yoga, meditation and walking.   I am a good communicator, have a friendly caring nature, and am interested in understanding your needs so that each ceremony reflects your different personalities and expectations.  I am authorised by the Attorney Generals Department in Canberra to perform civil marriages, and adhere strictly to the Code of Practice as set down by that Department for all celebrants.  I conduct myself professionally with integrity, and abide by high ethical standards.

Wedding Ceremony

Let me help you plan a wedding to remember.  Everyone has their own personal dreams on how they want to celebrate this very special day.  No two people are alike,

so it is important that I know your personalities and tastes so that the ceremony reflects exactly what you desire, your beliefs, and who you are.  You may write your

own wedding vows and readings, or draw from examples I can show you.  This is a very significant moment in your life, and I will make every effort to ensure that you

are comfortable and confident with our relationship, and that it is stress-free, so that you are more than happy with the outcome.  The day should be relaxed, joyous, and

a celebration of your love for each other.  You will be presented with an official wedding certificate, and a souvenir copy of your personal ceremony, which will

forever remind you of this very special moment in your lives.

Marriage according to Australian law is a union of a man to a woman, to the exclusion of all others, voluntary entered into for life. The institution of marriage recognises the social, cultural and legal significance of marriage and the marriage ceremony in the Australian community. Also, acknowledges the importance of strong and respectful family relationship. A strong family unit allows for the protection and education of children.
