About

I became a celebrant in 2010. I realised that there weren't enough fresh and vibrant celebrants out there and I believed I could offer something new and unique. I have a huge sense of adventure and although I enjoy delivering modern ceremonies, I would love to find a couple daring enough to have an adventurous ceremony (skydiving/bungee jumping/SCUBA diving/fancy dress). If it is anything outside of the ordinary, I am definitely interested.

On The Day Coordination

If you imagine spending your wedding day dancing, drinking, eating, celebrating and soaking in every moment then you probably don’t want to be the event manager and coordinator.

For some couples, planning a wedding is beautiful and rewarding, and some even love the time management and precision of it all, but on the day of your wedding there is no better feeling than taking it all in whilst someone else ensures it is running to plan.

The majority of weddings usually have anywhere between 10- 20 vendors. I will alleviate this by being the main point of contact. Managing minor changes and/ or questions they may have, which believe me can be a lot, when you are dealing with so many vendors.

Why not have somebody you have already built a relationship a with and understands your wedding day vision.
As your celebrant and OTDC, I will be working with you from the beginning, ensuring that you are both able to enjoy every moment of your wedding.

FAQ

On average a ceremony goes from 25min - 35min. It's important to remember that people are coming to see you get married, if it is any less than 20min your guests will feel a little ripped off. Ceremonies shouldn't be boring, in my experience no one has ever told me that a 35min ceremony felt long or dragged on. This also takes in to account the time it takes for the bride, bridesmaids and the rest of the bridal party to enter, the signing of the paperwork and a song for the Bridal party to exit.

The majority of people only see a celebrant working for about 30 minutes at the ceremony. What they don't see is the hours of work put into making the ceremony happen. Multiple meetings with the couple, getting to know them and understanding their vision for the ceremony, pages of paperwork. Writing a bespoke ceremony to suit each couple can take hours. Not to mention the annual fees and Ongoing Professional Development that must be taken every year to remain a celebrant. So even though it looks like an effortless 30 minutes of work, each wedding is approximately 15-20 hours of work. 

Also be aware that if a celebrants fee seems a lot cheaper than others, in most cases you will get what you pay for. Do your research, meet with multiple celebrants and find who is the best fit for you. 

 

There should be an initial meeting (either face to face or on the phone) for you to get a feel of them and ask all the questions (see below). 

Once you book in that celebrant, you will meet to get started with the paperwork -the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM), this is when the celebrant gets to know you, and they should be asking you lots of questions. 

Usually then you won’t see your celebrant until closer to the wedding day, to go over final details, have a rehearsal or at least block where the bridal party are standing, entering and exiting from etc. 

There should be communication between signing the NOIM and your rehearsal. I always send couples a draft of the ceremony I have written at least one month in advance, so that there is plenty of time to make any changes. 

 

Your celebrant will lodge all of your paperwork to Births Deaths and Marriages, this may take 2 weeks to be processed. On your wedding day you will sign a ‘decorative’ wedding certificate - this is not a legal document but is much prettier than your legal certificate.

You will receive your legal certificate in the mail around 1 month after your wedding.m

This is what will allow you to change your last name if you decide to. 

 

If it is your first time getting married, you probably don’t know what to be asking your potential celebrant. Here are a few to get you started and will hopefully give you a good idea if they will be a good fit for your wedding. 

What kind of style of ceremony do you typically offer?

What is your process - from this meeting to after the ceremony?

What happens if for some reason you are unable to make it to the wedding?

Why did you become a celebrant?

What sets you out from the rest?

Do you have a limit of meetings and communication we can have?

How much control and flexibility of the ceremony can we have?

What will you wear on the day?

What does the fee include? 

What is the cancellation policy? ...

What equipment do you provide?

If you are shopping around for a celebrant, all the information can get quite overwhelming. But if you can be wary of a few warning signs then hopefully you will be able to make a more informed choice

  • Their fee is a lot less than the others. A good celebrant will put in the work and the hours to make sure your ceremony is exactly what you want. Which is around 15-20 hours. If they are too cheap, they are probably doing a lot of copy and paste. 
  • They restrict how many meetings/emails/phone calls. Unless you have an agreed package (like a registry office/elopement style wedding) and you are paying for a full service, then you want to know that your celebrant is available for any questions and answers. 
    They should be a wealth of knowledge for you - chances are, they have been to more weddings than you. I have couples emailing me asking for feedback on their music, colour choices, seating arrangements and floor plans because it is always good to have someone to bounce ideas off. 
  • They don’t take the time to get to know you as a couple. They should be asking HEAPS of questions - about your relationship, your first date, how you met, the proposal, your family morals and values, why you are getting married etc etc. If the celebrant doesn't ask you many questions - RUN. I guarantee you, your ceremony will not feel personal or unique. 
  • You can't see yourself telling this stranger what you love most about your partner. If your gut feeling is off, or you don’t feel 100% comfortable with this person - they probably aren't for you. You are only going to get a great ceremony with someone you both connect with. 

If, after the ceremony there is something you really were not happy about ie. the celebrant was late, drunk, or unprofessional in any way. Then you can report them to the Attorney Generals Office.

December 2023

Yazmin is wonderful! She made our special day so perfect. From start-to-finish , she took the stress out of everything and when she stood beside us on the day, we felt relaxed knowing she wouldn't let us slip up. And, when we did slip up - which, of course, we did - she made us all laugh and put us gently back on track! We wanted something very relaxed and informal and she was pitch perfect. We were super busy in the lead up to our ceremony so we could only met Yazmin on Zoom before the day, but all our friends and family thought she'd known us for years. If you want a fun, happy, inclusive and totally bespoke wedding day, Yazmin is your celebrant!

We cannot thank Yazmin enough for making our day more than we could have ever hoped for. From the moment we met her we knew she would be the perfect person to bring our vision to life. No request was too difficult for her, she was professional and organised, her attention to detail was second to none. What we loved the most was how fun and vibrant she was, she truly takes so much pride in her work. Highly recommend!!!

Yazmin was an exceptional wedding celebrant who made our special day truly memorable. From the moment we met her, it was clear that she was the perfect choice for our ceremony. She was incredibly easy to work with, always attentive to our needs and responsive to our questions. Her warm and friendly personality put us at ease, and it felt like we were working with a close friend. On our wedding day, she ensured that everything ran smoothly, from coordinating with other vendors to managing the timeline. Her attention to detail was impeccable, which allowed us to relax and enjoy the day without any worries. What truly set Yazmin apart was her ability to cater the ceremony to our personalities.
