Welcome to Always Love Ceremonies. My name is Abbee Lockyer and I am a Civil Celebrant based in Brisbane, Australia.
My love for weddings started at my own wedding, where I experienced firsthand the impact a wonderful celebrant can have on your special day. I decided I would become a celebrant so I could help create magical and memorable ceremonies for other couples. I also wanted to provide ceremonies for couples that were fun, easy going and intimate.
I love working with couples to tailor a ceremony that suits them and their wedding theme and I'm more than happy to incorporate any rituals or fun additions the couple may like. Although I am based in Brisbane, I am most happy to travel to anywhere in Australia for your perfect wedding.
At Always Love Ceremonies, I also conduct Commitment Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Baby-Naming Ceremonies. So think of me for all your life milestones.
Before locking me in as your celebrant, I'm more than happy to meet in person or via skype so that you can decide if I am the best person for you.
Wedding ceremonies: $800. They include:
A private meeting with the couple (either face to face or via Skype)
An online information pack with sample ceremonies and sample vows
Preparation of your ceremony, including personal stories and tailored inclusions, to be reviewed and approved by the couple
