Australian Ceremony

Small or large, traditional or unusual, spiritual or down-to-basics, formal or informal; together we will create the perfect Wedding Ceremony for you.

Your choice of a Celebrant is a very important decision, so I invite you to contact me for an introductory (obligation-free) meeting at my home or a location suitable for both of us, where we can discuss your needs, ideas and expectations. Only then will you be able to confidently decide whether I am the right Celebrant for you.

Should I have the honour of being appointed your Marriage Celebrant, I will create a ceremony based on your personal style and preferences which you will have full editorial control over. I can offer you sample readings and vows or you can write your own. I will also make available to you all of my resources and experiences to make your planning as smooth as possible.

Your special day will be a result of us working together so that the ceremony will be truly yours - personalised and relevant.

My services to you include:

  • Obligation-free introductory meeting
  • Attention to detail and professional service at all times
  • Fully insured and registered Celebrant
  • One booking per day only so I can focus exclusively on your special occassion
  • Completion and lodgment of Notice of Intended Marriage paperwork
  • Creation and editorial assistance in creating your vows and readings
  • Access to my resources for wedding planning
  • Additional meetings face-to-face, as required
  • Unlimited contact via phone or email
  • Rehearsal prior to the day, if required
  • My arrival minimum 20 minutes prior to your ceremony to ensure all is ready to proceed
  • Presentation of your Certificate of Marriage on the wedding day
  • Lodgement of your legal paperwork with BDM to finalise the legal process after the wedding.

Please note: Should I be unable to attend your ceremony due to serious illness or any reason beyond my control, I will arrange for a professional and experienced replacement Celebrant from the Association of Authorised Marriage Celebrants Australia Inc to replace me, at no additional charge to you.
