• Welcome

Hello and Welcome

I’m Monica O’Hare, a Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant. You can find me just 5 minutes from the centre of the Sydney City. Although I’m based in Sydney, I’m legally authorised to perform marriage ceremonies anywhere in Australia and am available to perform other ceremonies overseas too.

I can help you plan a simple ceremony at home, or help you make your choice from the many fabulous locations in Sydney and around Australia. With my help your ceremony will suit the occasion and the budget.

Before I became a Celebrant my role was to present new business ideas to Australia’s leading companies. I love the engagement when speaking to an audience, and I’ve carried those skills over to my role as Celebrant. It’s a full-time role but I also do voluntary work as Secretary of a Body Corporate Executive Committee in Port Douglas, and as a member of the Cruising Yacht Club (CYC) of Australia you will find me cooking breakfast for the race crews on Sunday mornings in winter, the proceeds going to various charities.

I’m a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants, the largest association of Professional celebrants in Australia.

Weddings

Beginning the Journey

If you are planning a grand wedding it’s always best to book the venue before anything else, as once the paperwork has begun the wedding date will be important.  Simple ceremonies can be performed anywhere and at any time that suits.

Choose your Celebrant

The next step is to meet with me and complete the legal paperwork (Notice of Intent to Marry), at least one month before your wedding date. I will advise you of the documents you need for this step.

Planning the Ceremony

You may have already planned your perfect wedding, or you may need advice on a ceremony and budget.  I can help you with a simple wedding, or design a ceremony to suit one of the many fabulous locations in Sydney and around Australia.

For your Wedding

On the day you will need two witnesses and yourselves for the ceremony.  Afterwards I will lodge the documentation on your behalf.

The Big Day

Whether it’s a small simple ceremony or a grand occasion, remember that it’s your day and my services will reflect that.

Simple Weddings

Simple Weddings for couples who want a legally binding ceremony without the extravagant extras. Ask me for details.

Funerals*Memorials

Nowadays funeral services can take many forms, from the traditional service held in a chapel or by a graveside, to a wide choice of ceremonies and rituals celebrating a life well–lived, or you may wish to hold a living funeral where everyone has a chance to say ‘Goodbye’.

Whether you simply require a Celebrant to introduce the Order of Service or to design a ceremony or ritual, I can help you to plan the occasion and offer a choice of poems, hymns or music.

I am based in Sydney but I’m happy to perform ceremonies anywhere in Australia or overseas.

Please call me for an appointment to discuss your ceremony.

Testimonials

When I contacted Monica to act as a celebrant I found her to be  fun, caring and helpful, nothing was too hard for Monica, in fact she made the wedding so special.  She was organised, punctual and provided flair and sophistication to the service.  You can’t go wrong with Monica.

Amanda

It was an absolute pleasure having Monica’s help to officiate our marriage. Thank you Monica, I will be referring you to my friends

Matilda

Thanks to Monica and her involvement on the day, we had a very special vow renewal and will remember the day for years to come. I will be recommending Monica and her services to all my friends and family!

Sharon

Monica officiated at both our children’s naming day ceremonies. I found Monica to be highly passionate about her work, well organized and professional. We wanted the ceremony to be fun but also acknowledge the seriousness of the occasion and Monica was amazing at putting something together that was personal and reflected our values. We had an amazing day and this was very much due to Monica’s work and involvement.
