  • My custom ceremonies last about 15-30 minutes depending on what your ideal wedding looks like!
  • My short and sweet ceremonies last about 5-10 minutes 

The signing of the paperwork takes about 5 minutes, so it is nice for the ceremony to be at least slightly longer.

Weather has to be taken into account with heat, rain, cold and wind as possible considerations. An alternative venue/wet weather option is highly recommended if you are choosing an outdoor ceremony. 

You can have as many wedding party attendants as you wish, or none at all! Two witnesses over 18 years of age are legally required to sign the paperwork but these people do not have to be part of your wedding party; they can be anyone you choose! If you are including young children as flower girls or pageboys, we can discuss their role and position during the ceremony so that everything runs as smoothly as possible. 

Absolutely! Most couples choose 4 songs, one to play at the processional (entry), another during the signing of the paperwork (plus a back up song in case the signing takes a little longer than one song) and a final song at the conclusion of the ceremony. It’s usually easiest to have a spotify playlist ready and have a friend or family member ready to play. Of course, there is live music as an option too!

A small table and 2 chairs for the signing is recommended (if you choose me as your celebrant, I supply these with no extra charge!) However, once I married a couple and their signing table never showed up, so we got creative and used the bride's brother's back! As you can imagine, this caused some laughter and a happy, memorable moment.

This is dependent on location and the number of guests. For custom ceremonies, I can supply a wireless PA system and wireless microphone, suitable for up to 150 guests. 

Your deposit is due when you decide to choose me as your celebrant. This is after a no-obligation meeting, so there is no pressure to drop any money straight away if you decide not to go with me as your celebrant! The balance is due 14 days prior to the wedding. 

During the ceremony you are required to sign 3 marriage certificates. I will bring the paperwork and a signing pen. They are:

  • the certificate retained by me for my records;
  • the certificate that will be forwarded to the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages for the registration of your marriage;
  • the commemorative certificate that will be given to you as a record of your marriage – this will be given to you on the day (this is not considered legal proof of marriage)


For an official certificate from the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages an application needs to be submitted. I can apply on your behalf when I lodge your marriage online. The fee for the standard certificate is $60 and the certificate is posted within 2 weeks.

My husband and I were absolutely delighted to have Emma perform our recent wedding ceremony. Her warmth, authenticity and ability to craft a ceremony unique to us was incredible and so well received. Many of our guests said it was a beautiful ceremony and commented that Emma was so personable and fresh in her approach. My husband and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a marriage celebrant that makes it an unforgettable experience for the couple and there guests.

Dear Glynis, I am so happy you can say husband now! I absolutely loved writing your ceremony and thought the day was so intimate and special. Your words are so kind and are exactly the reason I am a celebrant. Thank you! xx

Emma officiated our wedding day in March 2023 and was an absolute dream to work with from the very first conversation to the wedding day. Emma made the effort to get to know us before our big day and made sure we were 100% comfortable with the whole process. Emmas calm and friendly nature made Luke and I feel at ease throughout the process, especially on the day of the wedding! We actually still talk about how calm her nature is and how grateful we are because it made us feel less nervous! I could not recommend Emma enough, truly an incredible person and celebrant.

I could not recommend Emma anymore ! She was so helpful throughout the lead up to the big day and post wedding lodging all the paperwork. Emma's calming presents made the day so relaxing and made me feel at ease even though I was so nervous. The attention to detail in her ceremony was exceptional and so personalized to cater to us as a couple. Emma has definitely made the whole process feel comfortable and easy and her warm friendly nature made her the perfect celebrant for our wedding. Thank you again Emma
