A way that some couples show honor to a culture is by having the celebrant perform an
"acknowledgement to country"
An Acknowledgement to Country is a way of showing awareness of and respect for the traditional Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander owners of the land on which a meeting or event is being held, and recognising the continuing connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to their Country.
Before doing this I would consult with the local Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander community to ensure the names of the area are correct and the pronunciation is correct.
If you wish to include an Acknowledgement to county in your ceremony let me know
