My sound technician hubby and I always arrive well before your guests, complete a sound check then play background music creating a welcoming ambience as your guests arrive. 

Attention to detail is how I roll, when we arrive I check the fine details of your decor, flowers, chairs are straight etc..  ensuring everything is in place as you would be expecting.

I love love love meeting loved up couples and spending the time geting to know you and your partner.  I'm a brillant story teller, I speak of the journey that's brought you both to this incredible occassion.

My grooming is maticulous, my style is fashionable to suit your theme colours and ceremony style.  I am happy to say that if for some strange reason I don't have something that suits your style and colour scheme I am more than happy to go dress shopping as that's the level of service I like to offer ... I do like to shop :) 

* I leave no stone unturned, I explain the entire process including all the legal documentaton as we complete this together.  Then straight after your wedding I lodge your documentation to register your wedding with Birth Deaths & Marriages and guide you through the process to change your name with ease.

* I include a short rehearsal a day or so prior at your venue, invite everyone involved in your ceremony so as they know what to do, where to stand and they all get a better  understanding of what's happening when. 

* My professioanl sound technician plays your carefully selected songs for your entrance, he'll manage the volume fading in and out as required for your bridal party entrance, signing the legal documentation, then of course your celebration song as you walk back up the aisle as a married couple being showered in petals. He also plays a selection of songs to keep the party vibe going as your guests congratulate you both.

The minimum is 30 days, maximum 18 months prior.  If you are happy with your celebrant and have a connection - book them without delay.

If you have been married previously, you must show your Divorce Decree Absolute or Death Certificate of your previous spouse.

A short rehearsal helps to fine tune and get the choreography of the bridal partys entrance/s, it also clarifies the what's expected of them and where do I stand on the day.  It's preferable that everyone participating in the wedding ceremony attends the rehearsal. This includes the wedding party, readers and both sets of parents if they'd like to attend.  Where ever possible it's best to have your rehearsal at your designated venue however at times venues are already booked the day or so prior; in this situation we'll discuss some alternatives. 

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 to state that there are no legal impediments to the marriage e.g. being married to someone else, the bride and groom being too closely related etc.
  • 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

The majority of ceremonies I perform are between 20 – 30 minutes in duration. However, your ceremony can be as short or as long as you would like! This depends on what you would like to include and just how personalised you would like everything to be.

Unfortunaley this is in the construction stages however I do have Instagram fionawinwoodweddings

I have been lucky enough to be invloved in many cultural weddings. I'm totally respectful of rituals and are hapy to perform then as part of your ceremony. 

Absolutely fine. 

I will also assist and share in expertise in putting your cermeony together to ensure the flow is natural and not awkward.   

Most definitely, I love love love icluding all furbabies. They are often the ring bearers and we have a special way of making that work perfectly! 

Myself and my sound technican arrive a minimum of 45 minutes before your scheduled time of starting. Were always first to arrive. 

I'll  only book in one wedding a day. I don't enjoy being time pushed to leave and race to another wedding. I give you my 100% focus for the entire time we are with you. 

Yes I am a fulltime Celebrant officiating weddings 365 days of the year. 

We do a specialised playlist for every wedding.  All you need to do is tell me which songs and versions and where they fit into your ceremony. 

Let us know you vibe of music as we like to match it for your before and after ceremony music. 

I have a network if Celebrants I can call on if needed. 

Touch wood as this has never happen to me but I have stood in for other Celebrants especially during covid. 

Absolutely I assist and ensure the feels are the same and word length also matches. 

Some couples can write an A4 but some just need a little help starting.  

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.

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

I have a professional bluetooth mipro speaker system on a speaker stand, which is portable and wireless.

A handheld wireless microphone for my couples and readers to use, and a headset microphone that I wear. 
I have a simple signing table and 2 chairs I can bring along on your request.

Fiona was an absolute blessing to work with. She was incredibly supportive during the whole process and we held complete trust in her. 10/10 would recommend.

Thank you Carly. When all of your guests go to the huge effort of travelling from interstate and overseas for your wedding it's important to get the right balance of fun and seriousness which we nailed! You and Damon did a great job at organising your wedding at Glen Ewin Estate. I was lucky to be part of your dream team.

March 2024

Fiona was well organised, fun and kept things simple. We felt instantly comfortable that she could help us make our day go as smoothly as possible and made our ceremony feel fun and like us! She truly captured what our relationship is and felt like she knew us from our first meeting. There were many compliments from guests post ceremony for how good it was!!!

Fiona is an absolutely beautiful person and celebrant, she made our ceremony flow so beautifully and made us both feel so comfortable. She was so helpful with any questions that we had and always reassured us along the way. Fiona was so easy to communicate with and make sure we understood everything that was happening. Fiona was amazing at helping us involve my daughter in the ceremony aswell. Having Fiona as our celebrant felt like have a friend you have know forever standing with us :)

Fiona was easy going and made us feel at ease straight away. She was extremely organised and took the stress out of the preparation and the day of the wedding.

Fiona was fantastic! We were thrilled to have her as our celebrant. Not only was she the reassuring face at the end of aisle she was also incredibly organised. From signing documents, to emails, to our rehersal she had it all organised. We were definitely an emotional pair at our ceremony and knowing we had such a supportive celebrant gave us such comfort. We are so glad we had Fiona marry us and would recommend her time and time again. Thank you for everything Fiona!

Thank you! Your wedding at The Retreat Chapel Hill was so perfect. Given everyone was from interstate including yourselves from Brisbane everything went to plan. It was beautiful to watch you walking up the aisle with your very proud Dad on your arm.

What can you say other than life partner and husband and wife?

wondering if there are any other ways to describe each other in our ceremony other than life partner, or husband and wife?

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant

Some of the terms I've used are your forever partner in crime or Legal best friend. 

How to honour lost loved ones at our wedding

Would love some ideas on how we can incorporate my late nan into our wedding. Thank you.

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant

Hi there,

Good question as there's many ways of doing this; being such an emotional subject I find it's best to acknowledge and move on back into this wonderful happy space you've spent time creating for your special day.

A nicely framed photo of your very special Nan on the signing table for everyone to see is lovely. The will also miss her not being there. 

If you'd like to give everyone to take a moment of reflection light a special candle as part of your ceremony in her honor. Have 2 candles for you and your partner lit in the moment by either your celebrant or a close family member maybe your Mum or Dad then you and yourpartner light the larger candle as everyone reflects on their memories of her. 

Your Celebrant should be able to guide you through something lovely and deeply heartfelt. 

All the best

Should we have signs at our ceremony to leave the front row vacant for immediate family?

I was thinking maybe this is tacky, but then maybe it's necessary. (Or am I really just overthinking it?) Someone suggested that this is the role of the celebrant - to ensure that it's family in the first row. Is that generally true?

Fiona Winwood Marriage Celebrant

Hello bride to be 

Most weddings I officite people know the front row is for the family; let family members know they are to sit in the front row. Reserved signs do help or an usher if you have large number of guests if your concerned.   

All the best for the big day
