About Susan Artup
Your Personal Ceremony
I’m very excited to be approaching my twentieth anniversary as an Authorised Civil Celebrant! My thoughts are certainly turning to the couples who will be celebrating their twentieth wedding anniversary in 2015.
Over the decades since being appointed by the Commonwealth Attorney General I’ve conducted hundreds of ceremonies – from intimate elopements to complex rituals, for neighbourhood friends to overseas couples. From them, I’ve felt privileged to develop an insight into what ritual means, and have been able to create a rich repertoire of ceremonies on which to base my advice on ceremony design.
Commitments, Renewal of Vows, Reaffirmations, Baby-Namings
Since 1995 I’ve seen many changes in the Marriage Celebrant Program, and, as a professional and experienced teacher, have trained many celebrants. In response to a growing demand for personalised ceremonies, I also facilitate the making of rituals for other occasions – commitments, renewal of vows, namings – or the creation of new rituals for new occasions. I’m confident I can make your ceremony the unique and significant event you hope for … I would love to meet you for an obligation-free chat or to answer any questions at all that you may have.
