Ceremonies

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 the two of you.

But all of my ceremonies are personalised meaning that your ceremony will be unique to your personalities, and exclusive - I won't be rushing you down the aisle to get to my next gig!  If you book me you get me from at least 60 minutes before your ceremony to make sure everything is set-up before guests arrive and I'll stay afterwards until your guests are happily enjoying refreshments, then I'll sneak out.

All my ceremonies include;

One no-obligation complimentary meeting to make sure we vibe right

(phone, Zoom or in person between Wollongong and Nowra)

Unlimited phone, text and e-mail support - you can have as much or as little of me as you need!

Performance of the ceremony.

All celebrant travel to locations within 90 minutes of Gerringong, NSW*

Professional PA system (Behringer) with mics including ability to play pre-recorded ceremony music.

Signing table and chairs, if required.

Commonwealth of Australia Marriage certificate (on the day).

Completion and lodgement of all paperwork for legal registration of marriage.

Official Certificate of Marriage (mailed later - valued at $60).

Plus not only will your ceremony be tailored to suit your style...

I'll ensure to dress to complement your tastes and colour scheme, whatever that may be!

*please enquire for travel fees to locations greater than 90 minutes of Gerringong

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

As all my ceremonies are personalised it's great to have a chat to you both about your plans first and that way I make sure that I've got your vibe and can give you a tailored quote to consider.

I'm happy to meet in person, chat on the phone or over video. 

So if you'd like a chat, find a time that suits you here.

If no time suits, then please drop me an e-mail or text 

and I'll happily figure out a time that works for us both!

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

All standard inclusions plus:

All meetings (usually one) to accept NOIM and discuss ceremony design.
 

Crafting of a short but

warm and bright ceremony.

The Couplet

Cute and Casual - if you want it to be!

The Couplet is what is known as a "legals only" ceremony and takes just a heartbeat in time!

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 receive 

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

Crafting of minimal introduction.

Unlimited email support.
