Services and Fees
Please ring for a free no-obligation meeting to discuss your special day.
I am passionate about working with my clients to provide a professional service that makes your wedding a beautiful day and a joy to remember. I support marriage equality - love is love.
Option 1- Short and Sweet
My fees start from $400 for a standard wedding service. This lower cost option provides minor changes to a standard ceremony script. Click to view.
Extra cost for travel over 40 kms.
This includes two meetings for completion and lodging of all the legal paperwork.
I also apply for your formal Marriage Certificate from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. This normally costs $58 with 100 points of identification if done yourself.
Option 2 – Unique for You
Fee of $700 provides for a personalised marriage ceremony written for you. This includes approximately 10 hours work crafting your unique
ceremony, something that reflects you and celebrates your relationship. This involves -
As many meetings, phone and email contacts as required to design your ceremony. Drafts of ceremony for you to consider and approve.
Access to a portfolio of readings, poems and ideas chosen to reflect your wishes for your special day.
Completion and lodging of all legal paperwork.
I arrange for your Marriage Certificate from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages at no extra cost. This normally costs $58 with 100 points of identification if done yourself.
Travel up to 80 kms to your wedding venue. Further kilometres may entail an additional travel cost.
Rehearsal on site where possible.
Option 3 – Themes and Costumes
Themed weddings cost more ($1,000 + depending on costume cost) but are a lot of fun.
If you have an idea that you’d like to play with for your wedding day, let’s talk about it.
Ideas include costumes from the 1950s, Mardi Gras / Masquerade, Roman Gladiator, Lord of the Rings or Halloween. The sky’s the limit! Services covered as above.
A booking is not confirmed until a holding deposit of $200 is received. Once the booking is confirmed and we have begun the paperwork and ceremony design, this deposit is not refundable.
If you cancel the booking, the deposit is not refunded. If I had to cancel the booking, the deposit is refunded.
Payment in Advance - Payment in full must be done at least 14 days prior the wedding date (as you will definitely be too busy on the day!).
Other Points to Consider
For your peace of mind, I am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants, so have Professional Indemnity, Public Liability Insurance, plus ceremony Copyright protection / APRA music performance licence exemption. If I was suddenly unable to perform the ceremony, I am professionally obliged to use my network to try to locate another celebrant for your special day.
