Why me? 

My main goal is to make sure you and your chosen celebrant are the right fit for each other and whether you’re planning a small informal wedding or a huge gathering with hundreds of guests, I guarantee I will work tirelessly to create exactly the ceremony you hope for.


What costs are involved?

Please refer to the fees page for a complete rundown of my fees and what they include. Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions relating to fees. 


When do we need to pay?

The initial deposit of $100 secures the date of your ceremony and the final payment is payable at the time of the first rehearsal.


What exactly does the celebrant do?

A good celebrant is a like a coach getting you to your day fully prepared and ready to do no more than enjoy yourself. As well as tailoring the ceremony to each couple, I will arrange the completion of all legal paperwork so your day is simply focused on celebrating.


Do you provide a set wedding service or vows?

As the vows are such an integral and personal part of your ceremony and can provide an intimate insight into your relationship, this is completely up to you

I do have a set of vows as examples for you to look at, or if you wish we can tailor a service to meet your requirements (miminal Legal Wording is required but all else can be tailored to you).

Your ceremony will be tailored to reflect your own unique relationship and I encourage you to discuss any aspect of your ceremony with me and we will work together until you have the exact ceremony you want.


Do you only do weddings?

I also perform Naming, Renewal of Vows and Commitment ceremonies.


Do we need to have a rehearsal?

Whilst a rehearsal is not 100% necessary, I highly recommend that you have one approximately one or two weeks prior to your wedding.

A rehearsal makes you feel more at ease knowing how your ceremony will run and it is ideal to hold it at the exact location of your ceremony if possible. I will check your music and setup and guide you through the service to iron out any last minute issues before the big day.


Do we need to supply anything on the day?

Given you will have 1,000 things to worry about in the day, I will arrange all of the things you need so you don’t have to worry about a thing – Just don’t forget the rings! If you decide to include any rituals during your service such as a candles or sand,  we will arrange all of this prior to your day.


Do we need a PA system?

I always suggest some form of PA is essential.  If your venue is not equipped with Audio facilities I will also arrange this for you. 

The preferred option is to run through this during the rehearsal and we can discuss the PA and music as part of our ongoing meetings.
