I am committed to helping you to design a unique and personal ceremony based on your wishes for a perfect day.

I love being part of a couple's special day. I have now conducted over 100 ceremonies. The last two were at Ginninderry Homestead (November 2017) and we managed a heavy thunderstorm for one of them by squeezing on the verandah - it was a lot of fun. Sometimes couples want a “no frills” wedding at home and I can certainly assist if this is what you want or alternatively, I will help you to design a ceremony that is something you have always dreamed of. I have conducted weddings at the Botanic Gardens, on the beach, at the Carillon, the Sculpture Gardens, Poacher's Pantry and many other great locations in the ACT region and the south coast. My most unusual wedding was on a cattle station near Alice Springs. 
 
I live in Cook, Canberra and I have a wealth of experience conducting ceremonies and public speaking. I am committed to helping you to design a unique and personal ceremony based on your wishes for a perfect day. You choose the time and place for the ceremony, the style of wedding you want and what you would like included. I can supply examples of all parts of the ceremony for you to choose from and then advise about the legal requirements. 


Our first meeting will be completely obligation free and it can be either in your home or mine, or at a location convenient to us both.

Contact me as soon as you decide on a date and you have secured a venue to check my availability. I can provide you with a Notice of Intended Marriage Form that you can complete for me to witness.

Call or email me now and we can discuss your plans.

How much do you charge for a ceremony?

Weddings by Christine

Fees will vary according to the amount of work and time involved. Fees include meetings, use of my PA system for your choice of music and to ensure guests can hear the ceremony, all travel for rehearsals and ceremony, writing a personalised ceremony (as many drafts as necessary), preparing legal documents and as many emails and phone calls as it takes to finalise the ceremony to your satisfaction.

A deposit or booking fee of $150 is required with the balance payable prior to the ceremony.

The booking fee is not refundable unless I cannot perform the ceremony due to circumstances beyond my control in which case I will organise another celebrant.

What preparation is needed for a ceremony?

Weddings by Christine

Contact me as soon as you decide on a date to check my availability. I can provide you with a Notice of Intended Marriage Form that you can complete for me to witness. Our first meeting will be obligation free and if we cannot meet we can organise everything by email.

Once you have completed and lodged your Notice we can start thinking about your ceremony. The ceremony can be as large and or as small as you wish. Many couples like a quiet wedding with just a few close friends and relatives as witnesses but this is completely up to you. I can provide you with many examples of vows, readings and sample ceremonies if you need inspiration.

If possible, we will meet at least twice prior to your ceremony at which time we can run through all of the legal obligations and plan in more detail.

We were delighted to have Christine marry us and be a wonderful part of our day. Warm, relaxed, utterly professional and generous of heart, Christine travelled from Canberra for us to Central Victoria. An amazing lady who we will always be grateful to.

I was really really happy. I've known her for a really long time. She was very accommodating and had such good suggestions. She gave such a fun energy to the ceremony. We enjoyed being married by her. We included all our children and parents the ceremony and made it a very personal wedding.

Christine was very accommodating and travelled to the South Coast to marry us in March 2010. Christine was practical,professional and had a real generosity of spirit and warmth. She listened to all our requests and provided good guidance. I appreciated her combination of calmness and her sense of humour. She has the balance just right and it was appreciated by all. We look back on the ceremony with such positivity, as it really reflected us and we would recommend Christine highly!

From the moment we met Christine my husband and I knew she would be the perfect celebrant for us. Christine has a very warm and fun nature which really suited our wedding. Christine put our story perfectly into words and created a lovely atmosphere during the ceremony. I was quite nervous prior to the wedding as I'm uncomfortable speaking in front of a group but Christine made me feel at ease. We could not recommend her highly enough and know she would make many other couples as happy as us.

Thank you Hannah. I enjoyed every minute of the ceremony and I am so pleased that you were happy with everything. That is what I want for every couple.

It has almost been a year since we were fortunate enough to have Christine as our wedding celebrant and we still think of her as a big part of what made our day so special. Since meeting Christine she had a natural ability to put us at ease. From planning the ceremony until our rehearsal the day before the wedding Christine was organised, kept in close contact and was so friendly throughout. The wedding ceremony on the day went even better than planned, it was personalised to us and Christine had our friends and family laughing throughout. If you are after a celebrant who so purely does her job because she enjoys it and wants to make to special, I would highly recommend Christine!
