CONGRATS! You’re getting married!!
As a 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 weddings. And no ‘been there done that heard it all before’ ceremonies.
What I want to do is get to know you and your partner, whether it be over a cup of tea, cheesecake brownie (my specialty) or a glass of wine, so that I can understand your unique story, what you want from your wedding ceremony, and - just as importantly - what you don’t want. 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.
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.
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.
MY SERVICES & WHAT'S INCLUDED
A no obligation initial meeting where we’ll discuss what you want for your ceremony and the style you’re looking for. Then, if you decide that I’m the right person for you we’ll all sign my service level agreement and you’ll pay the nonrefundable booking fee to secure my services for your chosen date and time. We'll have a second meeting where we will complete the Notice of Intended Marriage and I’ll sight your proof of ID and other documents I am legally obliged to see.
Access to my complete list of resources, including suggestions for music, readings and rituals you may like to include in your wedding ceremony, as well as ideas for how to write your vows and previous ceremonies that I’ve written to let you get a taste for my work. This will be sent to you immediately on my receiving your nonrefundable deposit either by post or email.
You’ll have as much contact with me as you need by phone or email, or in person if I’m available, during the lead up to your ceremony.
YOUR CUSTOM CEREMONY
A ceremony that is written exactly to your tastes and requirements. Normally this will take me between 2 and 3 drafts to complete.
I'll work with you to have a rehearsal in the days leading up to your wedding. Whilst this isn’t legally required, I wouldn’t recommend doing a wedding without one, but they’re not needed for elopements. This can be done at the venue, or my home office.
THE OFFICIAL PAPERWORK
You will be given a framed copy of your marriage certificate.
The completion of all legal paperwork will be lodged with the relevant Government department.
The use of my professional PA system with MP3 and smart phone connectivity for your ceremony.
DRESS CODE GUARANTEE
A guarantee that I’ll be dressed appropriately and in a way that reflects the dress code of your ceremony.
