I have 3 ceremony packages offering you flexibility to suit your preferences and budget. Visit for detailed information and pricing.

ABSOLUTLEY! Your ceremony should be a true reflection of you and your partner.  Every element, except the legally required wording, can be customised.  Whether you prefer a concise legal wording-only ceremony or wish to incorporate readings and rituals involving loved ones, together, we'll curate a magical day that captures your unique love story.

You, your partner, some proof of ID and birth, 2 witnesses over the age of 18, some legal paperwork and wording on the day... oh and ME, the authorised marriage celebrant.  Rest assured, I will handle all the necessary paperwork, ensuring everything is legally binding.  Most importantly, we'll start by completing the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form one month (and no more than 18 months) prior to your wedding date .

DEFINATLEY! After your ceremony, I will personally submit your paperwork to Births, Deaths, and Marriages.  Your official certificate will be delivered to your doorstep within 2-4 weeks via registered post, facilitating hassle-free name change processes.  This cost is INCLUDED in all my packages.

YES! I have my own PA system and everything required for your signing table.  

I provide the legal vows, and together we'll create your personal vows. Uncertain where to begin? Let's chat about what you love most about your partner. We'll transform your emotions into heartfelt vows, adding a touch of laughter along the way. Your love story, your words, an unforgettable moment.

Karina's exceptional organisation skills kept us on track leading up to our wedding day. Her help and support in choosing ceremony elements and crafting personalised vows was invaluable. What stood out the most was her seamless inclusion of our daughter and her bubbly personality, creating a heartfelt and natural experience. Karina's attention to detail and commitment to ensuring every aspect was taken care of, including delivering our wedding certificate, demonstrated her professionalism and reliability. We highly recommend her for couples seeking a personalised and meaningful wedding ceremony.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your special day! It brings me great joy to hear that I was able to assist you with your vows and contribute to creating a truly memorable ceremony. Your daughter's inclusion was a meaningful aspect, and I'm delighted that it added to the beauty of the occasion. It was an honor to be a part of your wedding, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to create lasting memories for you and your loved ones.

Being together 12 years and a couple of Covid cancellations, we just wanted a simple, no-fuss ceremony so we could finally get married. Karina made the process so easy. Her care and thoughtful presentation made our ceremony just how we wanted it. Throughout, Karina was friendly, personable and such a pleasure to deal with. We would highly recommend Karina!
