Renee Milthorpe - Civil Celebrant

Your wedding day is the one day you may publicly express your love and devotion to each other.

Your wedding ceremony should be the most moving and inspiring part of your wedding day. In front of your family and friends you may reflect upon your individual personalities as well as the wonderful couple you make together.

As a young, modern civil celebrant, Renee Milthorpe has an unique approach to every ceremony. Renee offers creative ways to make your ceremony personal and complete. A civil ceremony offers the choice of your own style, your own vows if desired, readings or rituals as well as cultural and spiritual traditions at any place. An outdoor garden, beach, a heritage landmark or your backyard.

As part of Renee Milthorpe's service, she would like to meet with you and discuss ideas and hear your love story to ensure your ceremony is complete.
