Rev. Raene Packery, The Marriage Celebrant

Marriage Officers


Marriage Officer Cape Town

Rev. Raene Packery is a marriage officer Cape Town that has been performing marriages (incl. same-sex) since 2008 as a registered Civil Union Marriage Officer.

A romantic at heart, Raene believes that when two unique individuals come together in love to make a marriage, it is a special union that deserves a ceremony which celebrates their love story in a uniquely magickal way. And that is exactly what Raene Packery, The Marriage Celebrant offers to all couples that choose her as their officiant and what sets her apart from other marriage officers.

Raene liaises with the couple, assists with guidelines and suggestions, and then prepares the ceremony. Her goal is to ensure that their big day is unforgettable so Raene creates a ceremony that resonates with the couple; by focusing on the love between them as a couple, the stuff that makes them good together and everything else in between, thus incorporating as much of their love story as possible in a fun yet respectful manner.

Whether one chooses to incorporate traditional elements into the ceremony or not is for each couple to decide, either way, Raene Packery will provide options that go beyond tradition and the expectations of the guests.

Marriage services offered by Raene are as follows:
  • Non-denominational marriage ceremonies
  • Interfaith Spiritual Ceremonies
  • GLBTIQ+ marriages & partnerships
  • Quick kiss & go marriage registrations
  • Pagan Handfastings
  • C0-officiated Wedding Ceremonies
  • Vow Renewals

Raene will take care of the lodging of the marriage register at Home Affairs and issue you with a marriage registration certificate on the day. Once the marriage is registered, you are then able to apply for an abridged and/or unabridged marriage certificate at any Home Affairs branch.

The ceremony can take place in a building or outdoors, such as in a garden or on the beach (provided you get a permit), but the actual signing of the register needs to take place under a roof or similar environment where the paperwork cannot be damaged.

Raene Packery also performs marriage ceremonies and rites of handfasting where couples choose not to have their marriages registered legally. This remains the personal choice of the couple and she is happy to accommodate those that choose to not take the legal route. You will still receive a “marriage certificate” issued by Raene to mark your special day.

Marriage Ceremonies
  • Religious Ceremonies
  • Non-religious Ceremonies
  • LGBT Friendly

So whether you intend on a ceremony that is unique or traditional, spiritual, Pagan, short, romantic, fun or whatever else you have in mind, Raene Packery is experienced and comes highly recommended by couples from all walks of life so you are guaranteed a marriage officiant that listens to your needs and tries her best to cater to all your wishes.
