How to Say I DoHow to Say 'I Do' - Mandy Newman & June Newman

The writing is on the wall. Traditional weddings are on the way out, and civil ceremonies are in. But while many people know what they don't want - no church, no priest - most are left wondering what they can do instead.

Packed full of ideas, inspiration, stories and excerpts from real weddings, How To Say I Do is a snappy pint-sized handbook that provides all the answers for brides and grooms-to-be wanting to create their own perfect wedding ceremony.

It covers:

  • What to say in your vows and askings and how to say them
  • Choosing the perfect venue and location
  • Incoporating ceremonies such as unity candles and handfasting into your ceremony
  • Finding a simpatico wedding celebrant
  • Trouble shooting tips (e.g. parent politics)

Along with loads of poems and readings ranging from The Owl and the Pussy Cat to O Somebody by Depeche Mode, How to Say I Do takes the hassle out of organising your marriage ceremony and puts the fun and intimacy back in.

The book was written a mother and daughter team, June and Mandy Newman.

Part of the first class of university educated civil celebrants in Australia; June has been a practising civil celebrant for four years. Twice married (once widowed, once divorced), June has been a hairdresser, nurse, sales woman, small business owner, market researcher, home renovator, death and bereavement counsellor - she's seen and done it all, which makes her the perfect civil celebrant.

After swearing for years she would never get married, Mandy Newman married in 2000.. For the past five years she has been a web producer at The Australian Financial Review, as well as a professional writer whose work has appeared in many newspapers and magazines.
