Questions and Answers

How long is your ceremony?

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant

It depends on the style of your ceremony.

If you would like to have a bespoke ceremony with personal story and vows, rituals, reading etc, it can take up to 30mins.
Simple elopement style ceremony can take 15mins or so.

Bilingual ceremony will obviously take longer but even if you want a bespoke bilingual ceremony I will try to keep it under 30mins as if it's any longer than that your guest would start yawning... :)

Do you travel outside Sydney? Other states? Overseas?

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant

Yes! 

I love travelling to different locations for weddings.

There will be a travel charge to cover my time, petrol and toll for NSW.

Interstate travel charge is usually return flight + local transport + interstate travel surcharge

I have traveled to Japan and Spain for weddings too!

As long as the border is open, I usually travel to Japan once a year around May and if you happen to be getting married when I am in Japan, you just pay for my domestic transport. 

Please ask about details.

We were so excited when we came across Megumi during our search for a celebrant. She is not only highly experienced and professional, but has an incredible sense of warmth and friendliness that made her feel as though she was almost part of the family. Not to mention she has a kick-ass sense of style! From the very beginning to end, Megumi was responsive and helpful. From her ongoing communication, resources she provided, general tips and advice related to the overall running of the ceremony and assistance with submitting the documentation for the marriage certificate- Megumi had it all covered. She even came to the rescue with a wet wipe when my dress was slightly splattered with mud right before the ceremony started! Megumi is definitely a one-of-a-kind celebrant and we are so blessed that she was able to officiate our ceremony. Thanks so much, Megumi.

Megumi was our celebrant and we knew from our first meeting she was perfect for us! Her unique bubbly style was what we loved at first but getting to know Megumi we learnt that she made us both feel soo comfortable and excited! She made our ceremony feel soo special, intimate and loving and we loved the energy she bought out of us. She kept us calm and happy the whole time. We absolutely adored Megumi!

Our beautiful intimate ceremony overlooking Bondi Beach on a lovely Saturday morning was made possible by Megumi as our celebrant. It was such a special moment that we will remember forever. Throughout the whole process she remained present and listened to our wishes. It was so great to meet with her before the ceremony, and she made sure that our ceremony would be exactly what we wanted it to be: grounded, romantic, peaceful and filled with joy and love. She will definitely give you the best and most authentic experience. We give our highest and warmest recommendations for Megumi.

Thank you Rannva, it was very special to me as well... and you know it because I was teary too wasn't I! I remember everything so well too... the vows, the tears (and your smudged mascara hehe), how hot it was and we had the blue sky despite the bushfire, the surprise guitar performance. Such a lovely memory for me to treasure too! Xx

It was such a wonderful blessing to have Megumi officiate our simple and intimate ROM ceremony in North Sydney. She has such an amazing personality and her service is impeccable, we couldn’t have picked a better celebrant! She is very friendly, helpful, kind, genuine and professional from the start. It was a great pleasure getting to know her over coffee before the ceremony, she has been very informative about the whole process and given us lots of ideas and suggestions for our ceremony. On the day of the ROM, hubby and I were so so so nervous but Megumi delivered the ceremony so eloquently and elegantly, it was just so beautiful and perfect just the way we wanted it. Our friends and family who had joined us virtually from around the world really enjoyed the whole ceremony. Thank you so much, Megumi for making our day so special!

Megumi was super easy to deal with! She takes time to really get to know you and what's important to you. She guided us through the planning steps, and led the ceremony with authenticity. She made sure it was fun and memorable. Would recommend.

Megumi was such a great celebrant! Walked us through the whole process, made it all so easy, and added a super fun vibe to the wedding! Her ceremony set such a great tone for the wedding, with a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

8 Apr 2022

Warm, empathetic, and genuine; Megumi not only nailed the practical detail of our ceremony, but took the time to understand who we are as people and how that would be reflected to all on our day. She, and the ceremony were perfect. A perfect choice.

Megumi was a fantastic celebrant for my wife and I's mini wedding in Sydney. She has such a fun and positive personality and that really shone in the communication leading to, and and the day of out ceremony. Due to coronavirus my wife and I decided to meet in Sydney for our wedding as we had been stuck across borders, Megumi helped us with every step getting ready and always responded quickly to our emails. Thank you Megumi for being so helpful and fun. We'll always treasure our mini wedding and want you to know that we appreciate you.

I found Megumi through her Instagram page and was immediately captured by her high energy, great style and fun personality. These all were on show for our ceremony and I can't imagine anyone else being our celebrant. She kept the process very easy for us with her own templates and ceremony builders. She's great on the day as she was calm and patient (there always a late aunt!) I didn't want a stranger being our celebrant and because she is so friendly and interactive, it felt like a friend was there for us on our specially day. I can't recommend her enough

Megumi-san is a really amazing celebrant & MC. We might have cancelled our wedding due to COVID(we postponed once), but she helped us a lot and made our feeling positive. We really appreciate her support. She was the one that we really needed to have the best day.

20 Feb 2022

We couldn't have picked a better celebrant! Megumi has been incredibly helpful and wonderful throughout our wedding journey. She walked us though the process, and tailored our wedding to perfection. Like most covid couples we went from being stuck in border restrictions to wedding postponements, and yet she still managed to deliver the ceremony with ease and enthusiasm. Megumi, we couldn't thank you enough for being our celebrant!

18 Feb 2022

Megumi was amazing! She made our wedding ceremony feel really heartfelt and special. She helped me, my husband, our family and friends feel looked after on the day, giving out clear instructions so we felt at ease and knew what to do. Highly recommend! Thank you!

14 Feb 2022

Arranging things for our wedding with Megumi was an amazing experience, super easy and to the point. She provides an A-class service and has an EPIC personality! She also submitted the docs immediately and we got the Marriage Registration at home in just 3 days! Would highly recommend Megumi to any couple!

12 Feb 2022

Megumi was absolutely fantastic from day 1 of our correspondence, lightning fast replies, loads of helpful resources and information, extremely friendly and accommodating and delivered a beautiful ceremony for my husband and I. I highly recommend Megumi to anybody wanting a customisable ceremony with a highly professional, friendly and personal celebrant. Thank you so much Megumi!

Megumi was both the celebrant and MC at our wedding. She was very patient with us as we postponed once due to last year’s lockdown - she made a lot of effort to get to know what kind of people we were to ensure that the ceremony was tailored to suit our personalities. You can tell she loves what she does and it shows in her professionalism and brilliant performance on the day. Megumi was a hit as our MC too - my friends said she was lots of fun; she also took great care to ensure things ran smoothly on the night, was attentive and helpful, and she did a fantastic job liaising with the other vendors on the day. My family is Japanese so of course they loved her too. Thank you Megumi-san!
