Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Kathleen Ryan Marriage Celebrant offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

Do celebrants usually recommend pre-marriage counselling or courses?

Hi there! Yes, they do. It is a legal requirement for all civil celebrants to provide their couples with information about relationship education as part of the pre-wedding paperwork. This will take the form of both the Happily Ever Before and After brochure, as well as info about some local places you can access couselling and workshops. As I say, it is a requirement for all civil celebrants, it's not a reflection on what they think of your relationship at all. :)

As you can imagine, the idea is that this whole shebang is more than just the wedding day but about the marriage as a whole, which can be complex. In order to foster open communication, understanding and keep that marriage together, couselling really can be an important tool.

How much should I expect to pay for a celebrant?

And is it cheaper to go for a religious officiant? I'm not fussed about the cost just want to know what to budget for. :)

Hi there! Well now, this really does depend on quite a few factors: where you are situated (rural and remote or in a city), what sort of ceremony you are after (simple and quick, big and bold)  as well as various other things.

You may have a celebrant pricing their services as anything from $400 to $1400. 

Really though, the choice of celebrant (as well, of course, as fitting in with your budget so you can still have the lovely dress and flowers) is more about the quality of their service. If your celebrant really takes the time to get to know you and your partner and your story, is able to guide you along the various aspects of getting hitched, has the same ethos and mindset as you, and will help you create an awesome ceremony, where you'll laugh and cry and remember it for a long time, that's what matters.
