Nancy Batenburg

I have skills and experience in a variety of ceremonies such as marriage ceremonies, Commitment ceremonies, Baby Naming (civil equivalent of a Christening), Croning (Wise Woman Ceremony) and others. I know local suppliers and venues around Darwin. As an ex teacher for a number of years, I enjoy children in ceremonies and am now a business owner catering to the needs of children. I'm Canadian by birth, Australian by choice have a Ukrainian/Russian extended family, married with three children and four grandchildren.

I am a romantic at heart. I want your ceremony, whether itís a marriage ceremony or a commitment, renewal of vows or baby naming ceremony to be as loving, meaningful and inclusive as you want. My services begin with your very first phone call, when I try to find out exactly what you want and what information you need to be informed about many of the choices you will need to make during this journey towards matrimony, commitment or inclusion of children in your lives. I want you to be the star of your show and I work hard to make sure that you have the resources, my time and energy and assistance to make that happen. I am happy to travel with the proviso that there may be additional costs to my standard fee, dependent upon location and have performed ceremonies across Darwin, the rural area and interstate. No place is too far away or too remote.

I provide resources to help you. Whether that means my time in an email, quick phone call or Skype connection. I can provide hard-copy or electronic samples of ceremonies or parts of ceremonies such as vow examples, or descriptions of ceremonies suitable for inclusion within the master ceremony, such as a Unity Candle lighting, a Sand Ceremony or hand-fasting, I support my clients. Scared of crowds? We work with that to minimize the stress. Uncertain of words? I provide you with resources and ideas to claim your own words and individualise your ceremony as you want it.

Need me to fit in with your schedule? I fully understand. I work from home (mostly) and am the owner of two businesses, one in Darwin but the other based in Brisbane. I commute regularly but your dates take priority. Want to use technology to talk? Contact me by email, ring on either my landline or mobile, email, Skype how do you want to talk? Iím always happy to answer general inquiries.

I am not just a celebrant; I also train other celebrants as a registered trainer through Gordon TAFE (Geelong, Victoria), one of three nationally accredited celebrant training and professional development providers.

I look forward to talking to you about how to make your special day come alive.
