Persian Aghd

Thank you for making our wedding day perfect!

You brought with you vast experience, warmth and grace; and your dedication and attention to detail went above and beyond the call of duty. Our friends and family loved the Aghd ceremony, and our non-Persian friends especially were amazed at its beauty.

Thank you once again. You come highly recommended by us!

Dana & Nick

Fluent in Farsi and English, I can perform your Persian Aghd ceremony in either language or a combination of both.

I will assist you in creating the words and rituals that have meaning for you. We can also integrate an explanation of the symbolism for your non-Persian guests. Additionally, I can give you advice and resources for designing and creating your Sofreh-Aghd.

{Please note that I only perform Civil Marriage Ceremonies, and as such do NOT include any religious aspects.}

My services to you include:

  • Obligation-free introductory meeting
  • Attention to detail and professional service at all times
  • Fully insured and registered celebrant
  • One booking per day only so I can focus exclusively on your special occasion

Please note: Should I be unable to attend your ceremony, due to serious illness or any reason beyond my control, I will arrange for a professional and experienced replacement Celebrant from the Association of Authorised Marriage Celebrants Australia Inc to replace me, at no additional charge to you.
