As a passionate Marriage Celebrant of 11 years, it would be my privilege to be part of your day.

If you are looking for:

  • a detail oriented, reliable & professional hand throughout your journey

... then you have just found your match!


I like to help my couples feel comfortable and at ease with me at all times. My goal is to present a hassle-free, smoothly run ceremony that is exactly as you both envisaged.

Questions and Answers

How much do you charge to present a wedding?

Noelene Smith Marriage Celebrant

Weddings can be and I understand that couples are working to a budget.  My fees are a one-off cost of $780.00 and includes meetings/a rehearsal at the venue (if requested)/several drafts of the ceremony to final stage/all legal document preparation and lodgement to Births Deaths & Marriages for registration of marriage/Certificate of Marriage/Presentation Copy of Ceremony as a keepsake/a wireless PA system suited to indoor or outdoor use/travel to and from venue on the wedding day and last but not least, presentation of the ceremony!  There are no hidden extras.

I like to meet with a couple for an initial no-cost meeting to help with the decision-making of choosing a celebrant.  Phone conversations are helpful, but I find face-to-face much more beneficial to all.

NOTE:  To book my services I usually require a booking fee of $350 with the balance payable up to two weeks prior to the wedding or part payments along the way, whatever suits best.

How much notice do you need for us to book you as our marriage celebrant?

Noelene Smith Marriage Celebrant

As soon as possible is the short answer – firstly so a couple can secure the date they wish and secondly to have their NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage) ready on time.  The required legal time frame for a couple to lodge and sign a NOIM with the celebrant is no less than 30 days and no more than 18 months prior to the proposed wedding date.  To ensure this important document is dated and signed within the time frame, original birth certificates, current drivers licences/passports, divorce or death certificates (if relevant) for both parties, need to be provided.

We have not been married before, what documents do we need to provide for you?”

Noelene Smith Marriage Celebrant

For a celebrant to complete the legal documentation required to register a marriage in Australia, a couple need to provide their original birth certificates, a current drivers licence or Australian/overseas passport.

What do I/we do if we can’t find our birth certificates?

Noelene Smith Marriage Celebrant

If a couple were born in Australia, it is an easy online process to request a new birth certificate from Births Deaths and Marriages.  The small fee involved also includes postage.  If one or both parties were born overseas, they would need to seek the documentation from that country.  If for some reason those records were unavailable, a Commonwealth Statutory Declaration would be required stating full details of their birth.

We don’t know where to start to prepare our ceremony? Are you able to help with some samples or suggestions?

Noelene Smith Marriage Celebrant

Absolutely!  My role as a celebrant is to guide you through the process with samples and suggestions and of course incorporate your own ideas on how you envisage your wedding ceremony to be.  My aim is to provide a ceremony that reflects a couples own individuality.

Noelene is a wonderful celebrant and we would highly recommend her to other couples. In the lead up to the wedding, Noelene was very organised and professional and provided all the requisite information to us as well as explaining the process very clearly. We had to conduct a few consultations via Zoom but that wasn't an obstacle. Noelene wrote a beautiful ceremony which really captured our relationship perfectly. On the day, Noelene delivered a beautiful and thoughtful ceremony which resonated so strongly with us and our guests. Special mention also to Doug for managing the music perfectly!

Hi there Grainne and Chris! Oh wow, thank you so much for this beautiful review! As part of your extended family was it not only my great privilege and honour to present your ceremony, but to have been able to spend time with you both in the lead up to your stunning wedding and to share in your happiness at the amazing celebrations afterwards. Thank you for your special mention of my "Roadie" Doug - he certainly manages to keep the "flow" of the wedding with the music at the right moment and I appreciate his presence very much.

Noelene is an absolutely fantastic celebrant and all round wonderful person, it was such a pleasure to have her as part of our special day. From the moment we met her we knew we had made the right decision, she was professional, friendly, organised and made the process all so easy for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a person who will help make your big day relaxed and memorable :)

Hi Tina & Rich, thank you so much for taking the time to write this beautiful review! I certainly enjoyed meeting you both and to be so warmly embraced by your family and friends. It was indeed my privilege to have shared in your beautiful wedding day particularly due to your original plans being totally disrupted by COVID-19 not once but twice (!!) making the occasion even more special and memorable.

Even as a family friend Noelene made Rachel and myself comfortable throughout the entire wedding process. Noelene was able to connect with both of us ensuring that our ceremony was well thought and presented our personalities in the best possible manner. We thank Noelene for her professionalism and making our day extra special! We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Hi Dylan & Rachel, thank you so much for your lovely review and much appreciated. It is gratifying to know that your wedding ceremony was all you had hoped it to be and I was indeed very honoured to have been asked to share such a special day with you both, your families and friends. With best wishes always. xxx
