Qualifications

Wedding Celebrant Qualifications – Mary Williams

I hold the following Civil Celebrant qualifications:

  • Graduate Diploma of Arts (Civil Ceremonies) from Monash University
  • Bachelor of Theology from The Melbourne College of Divinity

And I have received the following awards for my services in Civil Celebrancy:

  • Winner of the Civil Celebrants Graduate Association Award for the best ceremony written by a  graduating student (2004)
  • Winner of the Judy Watt Award (2009) in recognition of a significant contribution to the continuing development of the Civil Celebrants Graduate Association

However, the best qualification I bring to my practice as a Celebrant is a lifetime of immersion in family life!  A lifetime that includes the raising of a family, and now the delight of grandchildren; of voluntary participation in many community initiatives such as “Meals on Wheels”; feminist initiatives within the Christian church; and, in recent years with Very Special Kids – a wonderful organisation that supports families of children with life-threatening illnesses.

I am also a long-standing member of the Ashton-Smith Singers, part of the 2nd alto line-up!  I balance all this with a passion for swimming. I’m a member of the Malvern Marlins and, time and ceremonies permitting, have been known to swim competitively.

I am a committee member of:
The Civil Celebrants Graduate Association

I adhere to:
The Australian Code of Practice for Marriage Celebrants
