Raphael Osifo CMC, JP
Hello and thanks for visiting the BRIDE & GROOM website. I am a commonwealth Authorised Civil Marriage Celebrant, based in Western Sydney and happily married with three children. I have been a justice of The peace since 1996.
I am happy to travel throughout Sydney and Country NSW with additional costs. As a civil marriage celebrant, I have the skill and enthusiasm to create a heart-centered ceremony for your Wedding, Reaffirmation of Vows, Baby-naming or Christening, Love commitment and house blessings. The significant moments of your life deserve to be recognized and highlighted in a unique and personal way.
To me marriage is very important, not because it is the first of all human institutions, but especially because it is the institution of God. What God has joined together, let no man separate. Marriage is away of moving the extend family forward; the bride and groom are the instruments in progress of the family.
I strongly believe in love, joy, truth, integrity and professionalism. These are the qualities that I will bring to your wedding. Your wedding ceremony should be a wonderful and memorable occasion that expresses your wishes with meaning. You are the reason for the focus of your wedding and it is only right that you should choose the words and symbols that represent your union.
My philosophy is that your ceremony should be a reflection of the two of you, both as a couple and also as individuals.
I look forward to making your ceremony an intimate, meaniful, expression of your love.
Why Use a celebrant?
A celebrant is appointed by Attorney-General’s Department to preside over your wedding ceremony in a way that reflects your individuality as well as your beliefs and traditions.
Many people find that celebrant is the best able and willing to represent their values and accurately convey the true nature of their union. This also gives you the freedom to create your wedding however, wherever and whenever you wish.
I will preside over your ceremony with total presence. I will be the spokesperson for your love, I will convey the unique values of your union and I will give you the peace of mind that ceremony will run smoothly and professionally.
