Siobhan Adams - Marriage Celebrant
This is a great question, considering the range of investment fees between us celebrants! The short answer, I suppose is that we all get to name our price. My price is based on what you, the client, get from me, your hired professional.
From maintaining order of all legal work including the preparation, registration and storage of the Marriage Certificates to unlimited consultations (in person, via Skype, phone call or even SMS) to resource materials (ritual/reading samples and provisions), general travel expenses, a ceremony rehearsal, wedding ceremony planning, an excellent Bluetooth powered wireless PA system with wireless dual microphone and 2 stunning white chairs with signing table and decorations.
Above all of that, you get my undivided dedication to YOU. I am highly organised, passionate about people and their individual needs and I aim for perfection with no exceptions.
I also like to remind couples that to simply get married at their state BDM (with mandatory wording and legal work only, no personalised scripting) depending on the day and time of day, current NSW and QLD BDM fees range between $344 (weekday) - $588.00 (weekend). I am a member of The AFCC and as a matter of business, I don't believe that celebrants should undercut the fees set out by BDM:)
