Ugh, this is so exhausting, isn't it?  Do you need a wine? Grab one, I'll wait.










Let me make this really easy for you: 

  1. You don't know what you're doing (and that's okay!) - I've conducted 900+ personalised and kick-ass ceremonies; I'm great at it and I love it, PLUS
  2. You need help to write your vows, advice about how to include your Mum and you also need to work out how to stop your Uncle from taking photos during your ceremony - I've created an online Ceremony Planning Dashboard to make your planning quicker, easier and more enjoyable - no more trawling Google at 3am in a panic, AND
  3. You might be a little nervous about how the actual ceremony runs too. So on the big day, I'm calm AF and can keep you and your fiancé in the chill zone so you can relax and even have fun!

Am I a supporter of marriage equality? Yes.

Inclusive of different cultures? Yes. 

Have a feminist ideology? Yes. 

Drop me a line to see if I'm available and let's get started on your beautiful ceremony. 

I conduct ceremonies all over Adelaide, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills, but am happy to travel to the Barossa Valley, Kangaroo Island, the Whitsundays and other gorgeous locations too.


"Amazing celebrant. Camille's services from start to finish are outstanding and I would highly recommend her."

Heidi & Kayle

You treated the day like it was your 1st. We didn't at once feel that it was 'just another day at the office' for you. Thanks so much for this. Feedback from our guests was that we had one of the best celebrants that they have ever seen...” 
Alana and Jed 

“Our guests were all very impressed with your professionalism, how you conducted the ceremony and your calm approach. A lot of people said it was 'refreshing' to have such a young, energetic person as our celebrant!”
Celia and Lachlan


I'm Adelaide born and bred, love my husband and little girl and have a lot of time for wine and chocolate.

My service fees are dependant on: the type of ceremony (for example, a commitment ceremony costs less than a marriage ceremony because there are no legal requirements), time of year (peak vs off-peak), location of the wedding (within or outside of the Adelaide metropolitan area) and the complexity of the ceremony (elopement-style vs full wedding with bridal party, personalised vows, readings, rehearsal etc.).

Please email me at contact@ceremoniesbycamille.com.au with your ceremony date, time, venue and any other particulars and I can give you an appropriate indication of my fees. 

The following legal requirements must be met for a marriage conducted by a registered marriage celebrant to be considered legal in Australia:

  • with the exception of Section 12 from The Marriage Act 1961, both parties must be at least 18 years of age
  • you are required to have two witnesses to the ceremony who are at least 18 years of age to sign the certificates and register
  • you must sign a Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage to state that you are free to be married
  • a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) must be lodged with your celebrant no less than one month and no earlier than 18 months before your ceremony

To complete the NOIM:

  • you must show your original (photocopies are not accepted) birth certificate, extract of birth or passport from your country of birth
  • if you have been married previously, you must show your Divorce Decree Absolute or Death Certificate of your previous spouse.

    Camille was absolutely phenomenal right from the beginning right til the very end. We felt so unbelievably comfortable around her and her lovely, friendly and bubbly personality was a no brainer to have her be such an important part of our day, our celebrant. She well and truly nailed each and every part and we could never thank her enough for doing such a beautiful job.

    Thank YOU Jess! So thrilled for you and your beautiful family. Man, what a day it was x

    Initially, a ceremony to us was a part that kind of just "had to be done" before the fun started, but through Camille's advice we were able to turn it into much more: a time to meaningfully welcome guests, set the tone of the evening, and have some impromptu belly laughs. Camille's planning and guidance throughout was spot on - she gave us lots of ideas without ever being pushy - and enabled us to approach the alter with ease when the time came. Camille's wit and humour and warm nature meant she set the tonne superbly for the night. Multiple guests commented on the night and since how much they enjoyed her ceremony.

    When you told me that your wedding was in a funky distillery and your guests were going to be welcomed with drinks before the ceremony, I knew we were in for a fun time. It was my honour to create & conduct your ceremony. Too much fun. Congrats again x.

    5 stars isn’t enough to do Camille justice. Camille is the whole package - charismatic, funny, real, calm, professional, punctual and just a wonderful person. She was extremely organised in the lead-up, so generous with her time and sharing resources to help with every step of planning a wedding. She did such a great job helping us craft our personalised vows & made the process of changing my name after the wedding so easy. She was meticulous in her ability to actively listen and fully customise our ceremony to suit us. The rehearsal was fantastic and calmed any worries we were having in the lead-up.. we knew with her in charge, it was going to be just perfect. She crafted a beautiful ceremony that kept everyone charmed and entertained. The room was bursting with love. Thank you so much Camille! x

    Wedding vows for guys

    Are there any nice wedding vows for guys? I struggle with putting words together for this sort of thing, would like some thought starters please.

    Camille Abbott - Marriage Celebrant

    Hi Mate, 

    First off, I applaud you for thinking about this in advance and putting some effort into writing your own vows. I'm certain your fiance will appreciate the time you're taking. 

    Secondly, you are wanting to make sure that you're both on the same page in regards to how long both of your vows are going to be (word number not minutes) and the tone that you're both wanting them to have (they should complement each other). 

    Once you've got the basics of length and tone sorted, the next part is to get your thoughts and feelings down on paper or in a notes app. Some simple prompts include: 

    • When did you realise that you wanted to get married? 
    • Can you share a short story (just a sentence or two) when you started to understand how special your fiance is? 
    • What are their strengths and best qualities? 
    • What do you want to promise them? 

    Your goal is to make them feel amazing, loved and understood. And if you've done that, you've written excellent vows. 

    If you need any extra help, my ebook: 'How To Write Wedding Vows That Don't Suck' that all my couples use to write their vows, is available here: https://payhip.com/b/W3yoe

    Best of luck!

    How does a celebrant work?

    What is the process and what should we expect from a Celebrant when choosing the right one.

    Camille Abbott - Marriage Celebrant

    Hi Bride! :)  (and groom and anyone else planning their wedding..)

    I get it. 

    Trying to choose the perfect marriage celebrant to stand with you on your wedding day is one of the hardest suppliers to pick mainly because: 

    1. it is such a personal decision - the celebrant that one couple loves may be the celebrant another couple can't stand
    2. it is almost impossible for a celebrant to demonstrate to you exactly what they are going to be like or going to say on the day because every ceremony and circumstance is different, and
    3. you probably haven't ever booked a celebrant before and (touch wood) will never need to again. 

    But first, the essentials.

    The short answer is that every registered marriage celebrant in Australia is required to operate their business in accordance with the Code of Practice for Marriage Celebrants released by the Attorney-General: https://www.ag.gov.au/FamiliesAndMarriage/Marriage/marriagecelebrants/Documents/Code_of_practice_for_marriage_celebrants.pdf but as far as process goes almost every celebrant I know works according to what works best for them and their couples. 

    I wrote a post about what I think makes a good celebrant, which you can check out here: https://www.ceremoniesbycamille.com.au/blog/2016/5/13/great-celebrant and another post about what I do here: https://www.ceremoniesbycamille.com.au/blog/2016/4/17/what-does-a-celebrant-do

    That said (written!) put very simply, once you have completed your due diligence (check that the celebrant is registered, have a look at their testimonials/reviews, ask family and friends), the best advice I can give is to make sure that you have a chat with your celebrant before you book them. If you are interstate or overseas, make the time to tee up a Facetime or Skype chat - it's fabulous and it's free!

    You will have a gut feeling, an instinct, just from chatting with them.

    Trust that feeling and book them in ASAP because the great celebrants are booked a long way in advance (sometimes up to 18 months for the popular months of March, October and November in Australia).

    And if you don't feel good, just keep looking and asking questions - your perfect celebrant is out there somewhere.

    Best of luck! xx
