Your wedding ceremony should be fun, sincere and all about you..., there are so many ways to make your wedding day trully unique and my personalised ceremonies have been developed to make this one of the happiest, fun days of your life.

Couples are now discovering so many different ways to express their love for each other, so why not let me help you build a ceremony that includes something unique, personal and something your guests will remember forever.  

I give you the flexibility to blend a number of different ceremonies into one complete package that truly reflect you and what you hold so dear.

My ceremonies come with all of the features of much more expensive services offered around Perth, but you'll find them so much more affordable.  Everything is total flexibility and will be tailored to reflect who you both are as a couple (and I can also look after the music for you as well).     

"I don't marry couples because it's my job, I do it because I truly love what I'm doing and I consider it an honour to have been chosen to be a part of one of the biggest days of your life.   My aim has always been to leave my couples with a massive smile and a happy heart"   - Chris Temov

Questions and Answers

Are all wedding ceremonies the same?

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth

Years ago, many celebrants were able to get away with fairly boring, purely 'legal' ceremonies without a lot of fun, emotion or consideration of the couple's needs and wants (some ceremonies are still are like this) but thankfully times have changed.

It's important to find a celebrant who is prepared to give you the time to tell them what you have always dreamed of for your special day. 

Legally, there is a need to include a couple of things within the ceremony, but the rest of it is totally up to you and the celebrant to design. A good ceremony should be uplifting, sincere and exactly what you want. Most good celebrants should be able to ask you what you want and offer you suggestions throughout the process. 

What's a personalised ceremony

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth

Just like the saying 'Everybody's different', couple's tastes in ceremonies are also different. Some couples want a 'laid back' ceremony, while others prefer something a bit more 'traditional', some like things a bit 'light hearted' while others like to explore the 'pure emotion' of the day. You need to find a celebrant who is prepared to spend time with you, to guide you and to listen to you.

I pride myself of being one of the few 'full time' marriage celebrants in WA who is also able to offer each of my couples a genuinely personalised ceremony. I spend most of my time getting to know what your needs will be on the day, your personality and also your 'story'.

I find out if you're comfortable in front of a group of guests or if you prefer to stand back a bit,  I then design a ceremony that'll make you feel the most comfortable on the day. 

I think it's important that each couple gets to celebrate their individuality, so find a Celebrant who will help you craft a ceremony that you'll be proud to call your own.  Try to avoid the 'cut & paste' ceremonies, this isn't what you're paying for!

Why do ceremony costs, vary so much

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth

Each celebrant sets their own prices based on the time they spend on your ceremony, their experience and (believe it or not) ... their Ego!  There is no 'standard' fee, but prices are often range from $450 (usually a new celebrant) up to $900++. Personally, I feel midway is a fair price to charge. On top of this, most celebrants will often charge an additional travel fee if ceremonies are performed outside the Perth metro area (for Perth based celebrants).

The costs should reflect the amount of time a celebrant invests in meeting the couple, researching and preparing a full ceremony, arranging ceremony music (optional), a rehersal and performing the ceremony of the day as well as looking after your document lodgement.

Some celebrants don't include the preperation of all of the legal documentation, I include all of this as part of my service, making the legal process easy & seamless. I get together to help you prepare all of your paperwork, certify your ID and documentation and make sure that everything that needs to be done, is done correctly. 

If you're on a limited budget and are happy to pay for a ceremony at the lower end of prices, you may have to expect that your celebrant is just starting out or may be a 'part time' celebrant, and while this is not a bad thing, it's just something to take this into consideration.

If you're prepared to pay for a higher priced celebrant, it's important to determine the amount of time the celebrant is going to invest in your ceremony (usually around 10 hours per ceremony). It is also important to determine if your celebrant is prepared to spend time developing your 'individual' ceremony and not simply provide a 'cut & paste' ceremony. If someone is going to charge you a lot of money to provide you with a professional service, it MUST be professional.

Don't just pay for someone's ego, their 'online' presence or the testimonials on their website (these are difficult to verify), FB testimonials seem to be a bit more reliable.  There are a lot of great celebrants in Perth and many will be within your price range. With the right amount of investigation, you'll find the best fit for you.

I believe it's important to make sure you're getting value for money and above all, you should feel comfortable working with your celebrant.

They must understand YOUR needs.. after all, it's YOUR wedding.  

Are all celebrants the same and are they all qualified.

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth

All celebrants need to undergo a number of ongoing training courses intended to bring all celebrants up to a pre-determined standard and to ensure that Celebrants maintain a high level of professionalism, but are they all the same?

As with all individuals, each Celebrant also has their own unique personality and it's this part that makes the process of finding the 'perfect' Celebrant for you, the fun bit. 

We all have certain people that we get on with and this is what will help you find the perfect Celebrant for your ceremony. Besides you, the Celebrant plays the most important part of your ceremony, without a Celebrant (or minister) you can't get married, so it's important to make sure you feel absolutely comfortable with the one you choose. 

Make sure the Celebrant you eventually choose, has your interests at heart and is not just there to 'self promote or grandstand'. They need to understand you both, your family and friends and to deliver a ceremony that is totally yours.

Chris was the most wonderful celebrant! My partner is not a very chatty or open guy but Chris managed to create a ceremony that described us both perfectly! He was always well spoken (even with my crazy surname), professional and everybody commented about how great it was to hear a genuine and meaningful ceremony and vows. Can't recommend Chris highly enough! Thanks for making us your first wedding of the new decade :)

14 Apr 2019

Chris was fantastic, we had so many comments from people about how amazing he was! I was so lucky to have found such a great celebrant! He was just so lovely, the ceremony just went so great. We were particular with what we wanted, and he did the ceremony so naturally which was exactly what we wanted! We got a bit of unexpected rain but he turned it around so well to become such a special day!

Without a doubt, Chris was an amazingly wonderful celebrant. My husband and I were so put at ease by his easy going and friendly nature throughout the entire process. Thank you Chris for your wonderful service as our celebrant, we were beyond thrilled with all that you did. Can not speak highly enough of Chris and would definitely recommend him to anyone else looking for a marriage celebrant.

Hi Lisa, thank you so much. I had a great time working with you and Adam and your guests were completely 'off the chart'. What a happy it day it was as I'm sure the rest of your married life will be as well..

21 Mar 2019

Chris was a part of a wedding package, so I'm not sure on pricing, but we paid $80 for a rehearsal - it was WELL worth it. I cannot recommend Chris enough!!! We would have been lost without him. Chris was so calm, gentle and understanding throughout our rehearsal - and the big day! He even organised all the music for the ceremony for us. Also, I'm pretty sure my husband would have fainted with nervousness had we not had Chris ;) Thank you Chris - for the best ceremony EVER!

28 Dec 2017

Chris was an excellent celebrant. He made myself and my husband come at ease and relaxed throughout the process. He was very professional but also very approachable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a celebrant.

Thanks so much Laura, I had such a great time at yours and Brock's wedding, thanks also for your nice review, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you both and having the opportunity to perform your ceremony on the Swan River. The very best for the future as a married couple.

20 Dec 2017

Chris is the best celebrant in Perth. We had some unique requests for the ceremony and we made last minute changes to the run sheet, all of which Chris made super easy and made us feel comfortable. The ceremony itself was perfect. Cannot recommend Chris Temov highly enough.

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth  

Hi Chris, I just wanted to thank you and Val for the opportunity to get to know you both and to be a part of your special day. No need to thank me for the 'last minute' changes, after all your wedding day is all about you two and the changes were just a way of making this 'once in a lifetime' event prefect for you both. It was great also to get to meet your family and friends and I can only imagine how much fun your reception was. Everyone seemed to be in a great mood to have a fabulous night. Stay well, Chris

Chris did an absolutely superb job as our marriage celebrant. The ceremony was tailored specifically to reflect us as a couple and Chris was so professional yet emotive and had most guests with a tear in their eye

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth  

Charday, you and Ben were an amazing couple to work with and I'll always remember your ceremony for it's grander (at the Uni) and casualness at the same time. It was truly unique and a lot of fun.

6 Apr 2017

Chris was awesome. Very friendly and cruisy, just what we wanted for our wedding. He adapts to each wedding depending what your after. Everyone commented on how truly happy he was for us on our big day. Thanks Chris :)

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth  

Hi Mel, I agree it was a great day and you all looked amazing on the day. Tahfi really rose to the occasion, I thought he was going to be too nervous on the day, but he smashed it out of the park. Really happy for you both and your lovely family.

24 Mar 2017

Chris was amazing! Felt so comfortable with him immediately. He got us both! He listened to everything we wanted and he was so easy to deal with!

Chris Temov Marriage Celebrant Perth  

Hi Emma, I'm so glad you and Nick enjoyed your day. I think it would have taken weeks to wipe the smile from Nick's face. It was a perfect day at Harold Boas Gdns. and I can only imagine the festivities kicking on all night long. Thank you both very much.
