QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How do we choose our Celebrant?
Choosing your Celebrant is very much a personal matter, it's very important that you choose someone that you feel comfortable with; do not go on price alone.
What does a Celebrant do?
A celebrant will conduct your ceremony. They will meet with you to discuss your needs and expectations, write and facilitate a ceremony tailored to your personal requirements.
Does a Celebrant travel away from his/her local area?
All marriage celebrants are registered Australia wide, therefore it is up to the individual celebrant if they wish to travel long distances.
Do Celebrants have to provide a portable Public Address (PA) system?
It is important that the wedding is audible for all guests, therefore the celebrant must make effort to ensure that it is for all those present.
How much does a Celebrant cost?
When you are working on your budget for your wedding it is important that you do not over look the fact, that your Marriage Celebrant is an integral part of the day and you should note that the time the Marriage Celebrant spends at your wedding ceremony is only "the tip of the iceberg".
Your Marriage Celebrant is a very important part of your wedding day and think of the cost in terms of making an investment, one which ensures that you engage a quality Celebrant and as such, the cost is only one aspect to be considered. Your choice of Celebrant can "make" or "break" your day.
How many meetings do I need with the Marriage Celebrant?
The number of meetings is not stipulated and Celebrants differ in this regard. However, from a reasonable perspective, you would need to meet at least twice with your Celebrant unless this isn't practical e.g. if you live interstate or overseas from your celebrant. The first meeting may cover the signing of the Notice of Intended Marriage, form the provision of contact details etc.
How long before the ceremony does the Celebrant have to arrive?
The celebrant should be available at the venue for each marriage ceremony at least 20 minutes before the agreed commencement of each ceremony (unless, in the case of consecutive ceremonies, the ceremonies are to be held at the same venue).
Is there an extra charge for having a rehearsal?
If requested by the parties, the celebrant is required to conduct a marriage ceremony rehearsal; at a mutually agreed time, date and place. However, please remember that in this case, your Celebrant is entitled to charge an additional fee for this service: a fee which should be outlined in his/her "Statement of Fees" and discussed with you at your first meeting.
