    The Couplet

    Cute and Casual*

    From $560

    *if you want it to be!

    The Couplet is what is known as a "legals only" ceremony.

    This snappy ceremony will take a maximum of 10 minutes, to complete all legal marriage requirements including signing of the registry.

     

    This is similar in style and price to a registry wedding and contains minimal personalisation - you can insert your own personal vows and ring exchange if you like. 

    Unlike a registry wedding, however, we can do this anytime, any place and even sneak in a cheeky champagne to toast your new marriage! 

    BYO yourselves and two witnesses over the age of 18.

    All standard inclusions plus:

    One meeting to confirm ID and receive 

    Notice of Intent of Marriage (NOIM) a minimum of one month prior

    Crafting of minimal introduction

    Unlimited email support

    The Sonnet

    Short, Sweet and Sunny

    From $760

    Perfect for elopements and intimate weddings, but also for couples who don't want the full spotlight!

    This generalised ceremony is around 15 minutes in length, a little longer longer than a legals only ceremony as it includes some personalisation.

    I'll help create a warm atmosphere to bring your guests straight into the bright heart of your love and you'll have the opportunity to include others in this ceremony in whatever form you wish - think beyond readings, maybe a speech, ring warming or a song.

    I'll also assist you in writing your personal vows if you would like.

    All standard inclusions plus:

    All meetings (usually one).
     

    Crafting of a short personal ceremony (approximately five hours).
     

    Access to poems and readings if required.
     

    Personal vow assistance, if required.

    Unlimited phone and email support.  

    One rehearsal, no longer than 30 minutes, 

    at the ceremony location or appropriate venue

One size does not fit all because life would be pretty boring if we were all the same!  Just as I believe there is the right celebrant for every couple, there is the right style of ceremony to suit their needs.

For that reason, I offer a range of different marriage ceremonies and packages to suit your style and needs.

As your marriage celebrant I will work with you to create a ceremony that is still unique to your personalities and vision for your special day! Want to read what couples have been saying?

Being a civil celebrant, alongside wedding ceremonies I am also delighted to curate other stories of love in your life.

Contemporary Civil Celebrant bringing love stories to life in ceremonies throughout the Illawarra and Shoalhaven, on the South Coast, 

in the Southern Highlands and beyond!

Based in Gerringong, NSW

I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which I work and live, the Waddi Waddi people of the Dharawal Nation, and pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging. I celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
