what type of ceremonies do you offer?
As a Marriage Celebrant, it’s my mission to create a unique ceremony for you that is as personal as you want it to be. That means no cookie cutter weddings. No boring elopements. And no ‘been there done that heard it all before’ ceremonies. I also love to travel, so just because I am based in Melbourne doesn’t mean I need to stay here. Have passport, will travel!
Weddings - $1200
Let’s start with weddings. When people think of Wedding Celebrants that usually think of a retiree with a massive clipboard and name badge that talks of eternal love that has no start and no… blah blah blah. My thoughts (with all due respect) is throw all of your pre conceived notions of what a wedding HAS to be, and lets create something that’s entirely you instead.
Don’t want to wear white? No problem! Want to walk down the aisle with your partner? Let’s do it! Want to end in a giant food fight? Well I’ve never done it before but I don’t see why we can’t!! Or just want to stand around with some mates and marry the love of your life? I am 100% there.
Your wedding can be as OTT or as chilled as you and your partner would like. There is no right or wrong. There is just me getting to know you over tea, coffee, wine or beer so that I can understand your story, what you want from your wedding ceremony. Call me a geek, but this is one of my favourite parts of the job, because the more that I can get to know you and your fiancé, the better I know your ceremony will be, and the happier everyone will be at the end.
Any couple that book a wedding or elopement with me have the choice of donating up to $50 that I will match and donate to Minus18 - an Australia’s youth driven charity supporting LGBTQIA+ Youth.
*Travel is worked out at $1 per km over 50kms each way.
*Interstate or international weddings would also require cost of travel and minimum of 2 nights accommodation included.
*Weekday weddings (Mon - Thurs) have a 20% discount on price quote above.
Elopements - $1200
But maybe you’re not wanting a big ceremony? And if that’s the case, have you thought about whether eloping would be better for you?
As well as wedding ceremonies, I also work with couples to create beautiful elopements. Elopements are perfect for anyone who wants to get married with just the two witnesses and minimal fuss - or with lots of fuss, but minimal guests.
An elopement ceremony with me is the perfect halfway point between a big blow out and a registrar office wedding. You’ll still get the personalized ceremony, and it’ll still be about you and your love, but it’ll be a much smaller affair with 2 or 3 guests.
legals only weddings - $450
We can also strip it riggggghhhht the way down and do a legals only wedding ceremony instead. This means that we take out all the detail, the story, the rings and the personal vows and just do the legally required elements of the wedding ceremony. This usually takes about 3 minutes on the day and is perfect for someone that’s having the big shebang overseas (maybe Bali or India or the Maldives?) and wants to do the legalities here. Easy and not a problem at all! (Not available on Saturdays in October through to June)
Trans naming ceremonieS - Free
Theres still a lot of misconception about what being transexual, transgender or non binary means, and not nearly as much acceptance or understanding in the wider community as there should be. If you, a friend, or a family member is in the process of transitioning, I’d love to work with you and them to create a ceremony that reflects the changes that you’re going through. I’ll make sure that the pronouns are correct and it’ll give you a chance to deadname your previous identity, and focus on recognising your new identity and stage of life.
emcee, mc or hosting - $75 p/hour
Looking for an MC or host that will actually engage your audience, rather than just make them yawn? Drop me a line to see how I might be able to work with you so that you don’t end up asking your second cousin’s mate who will most likely be drunk by the end of the ceremony and make awful jokes as segues to the best man speech (it does happen!).
The choice is yours. So give me a call on 0421 947 824 and let’s have a chat about what you’re looking to do.
