a Buddhist ceremony, a monk does not need to be present. The couple can travel
to the nearest Temple to seek blessing at their convenience.
real issue with a Buddhist wedding ceremony (as such), is that it does not comply
with Australian Law. This is why Philip Greentree has written a ceremony that
includes the components that comply with Australian Legal requirements.
ceremony contains many essential rituals, including:
Offering to Buddha
Reading the Sigalovada Sutta
asking of vows of the bridal couple
Tisarana The Panca Sila
The Australian Bridal Industry Academy
Philip takes great personal pride in professionalism and achievement. He is one of the few NSW celebrants outside of Sydney to be approved by the Australian Bridal Industry Academy, which gives you peace of mind knowing the standard of quality service and presentation he has achieved.
Of course, the ceremony contains the elements required by Australian Law:
The couple's marriage vows
Signing the Register
Of course, the rest of the cermony inlcudes the Buddhist traditions as well as some deeply spiritual elements I have developed especially for weddings.
