Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How much do you charge to present a wedding?

Weddings can be and I understand that couples are working to a budget.  My fees are a one-off cost of $780.00 and includes meetings/a rehearsal at the venue (if requested)/several drafts of the ceremony to final stage/all legal document preparation and lodgement to Births Deaths & Marriages for registration of marriage/Certificate of Marriage/Presentation Copy of Ceremony as a keepsake/a wireless PA system suited to indoor or outdoor use/travel to and from venue on the wedding day and last but not least, presentation of the ceremony!  There are no hidden extras.

I like to meet with a couple for an initial no-cost meeting to help with the decision-making of choosing a celebrant.  Phone conversations are helpful, but I find face-to-face much more beneficial to all.

NOTE:  To book my services I usually require a booking fee of $350 with the balance payable up to two weeks prior to the wedding or part payments along the way, whatever suits best.

How much notice do you need for us to book you as our marriage celebrant?

As soon as possible is the short answer – firstly so a couple can secure the date they wish and secondly to have their NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage) ready on time.  The required legal time frame for a couple to lodge and sign a NOIM with the celebrant is no less than 30 days and no more than 18 months prior to the proposed wedding date.  To ensure this important document is dated and signed within the time frame, original birth certificates, current drivers licences/passports, divorce or death certificates (if relevant) for both parties, need to be provided.

We have not been married before, what documents do we need to provide for you?”

For a celebrant to complete the legal documentation required to register a marriage in Australia, a couple need to provide their original birth certificates, a current drivers licence or Australian/overseas passport.

What do I/we do if we can’t find our birth certificates?

If a couple were born in Australia, it is an easy online process to request a new birth certificate from Births Deaths and Marriages.  The small fee involved also includes postage.  If one or both parties were born overseas, they would need to seek the documentation from that country.  If for some reason those records were unavailable, a Commonwealth Statutory Declaration would be required stating full details of their birth.

We don’t know where to start to prepare our ceremony? Are you able to help with some samples or suggestions?

Absolutely!  My role as a celebrant is to guide you through the process with samples and suggestions and of course incorporate your own ideas on how you envisage your wedding ceremony to be.  My aim is to provide a ceremony that reflects a couples own individuality.

Noelene is an absolutely fantastic celebrant and all round wonderful person, it was such a pleasure to have her as part of our special day. From the moment we met her we knew we had made the right decision, she was professional, friendly, organised and made the process all so easy for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a person who will help make your big day relaxed and memorable :)

Hi Tina & Rich, thank you so much for taking the time to write this beautiful review! I certainly enjoyed meeting you both and to be so warmly embraced by your family and friends. It was indeed my privilege to have shared in your beautiful wedding day particularly due to your original plans being totally disrupted by COVID-19 not once but twice (!!) making the occasion even more special and memorable.

Even as a family friend Noelene made Rachel and myself comfortable throughout the entire wedding process. Noelene was able to connect with both of us ensuring that our ceremony was well thought and presented our personalities in the best possible manner. We thank Noelene for her professionalism and making our day extra special! We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

With best wishes always. xxx

We LOVED Noelene. She was the perfect celebrant from the moment we met her. She was warm and friendly and we loved how organised she was with all of the paperwork and clearly she knew exactly what she was doing with regards to the legal side of things. During the ceremony she put all of our guests at ease and did a beautiful job writing the ceremony and was happy to take in all of our feedback to ensure we were happy with everything. We had a wide cross section of people at our wedding, of all ages and faiths, and Noelene managed this perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant and recommend her very highly.

Hi Christina, Thank you so much for your review, it is much appreciated. It was my absolute pleasure to have worked with you and so pleased to hear that you were both happy with the ceremony. Despite Melbourne's unpredictale weather, the hotel created a wonderful intimate atmosphere and I was delighted to be a part of your special day. and to meet your families and friends. Many thanks once again, my very best wishes to you both.

Noelene is a kind hearted compassionate celebrant who took on all of our wishes. Noelene took the time required with us with pre wedding prep and we truely felt looked after through the entire process as both my partner and I had no idea what we were doing! Noelene thank you for all that you do, the hard efforts you made with a stubborn groom! And being part of our special day.

Hi Emma, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, it is much appreciated. It was my pleasure to assist you both and share a few laughs along the way! So pleased to hear that you were happy with your ceremony and I was delighted to be a part of your special wedding day memories. Best wishes to you both.

What an amazing experience we had with Noelene. We were put onto Noelene through family and are so grateful that we did as she put all of our thoughts and words into this amazing Ceremony. She listened to our story of falling in love and told it to our family and friends just the way we would've liked it to be. Noelene is very professional throughout the whole process, and if you are a control freak like me, going through the many meetings and being kept in the loop is the best thing she could've done. On the day she made sure everyone was standing in the right spaces and made she we both felt comfortable. WE are so lucky we got to have Noelene as our Marriage Celebrant and I would highly recommend her to everyone!! Oh, and of course, who could forget her amazing sidekick - DOUG! he made sure all our happy songs were playing at the right times and didn't miss a beat! Thanks!!

Thank you so much for your beautiful review Katie. It was my absolute pleasure to work with you both and a special privilege to present your ceremony. We also both enjoyed the wonderful celebrations with family and friends afterwards too! I can assure that at no time did I think you were a "control freak" (haha) but simply a couple rightly wanting to have the wedding they had always envisaged and the happiest of memories. I am delighted this was achieved.

Noelene was wonderful! She was great with communication and made our services very personalised.

Thank you so much for your review! I was delighted to be a part your special wedding day as well as the delightful surprise of your connection to my family!

What made her stand out is the time she wants to spend getting to know the couple. Its not to make money but to build close relationships with people. That's why we went with her. She is a really, really pleasant person with a beautiful nature. I'd definitely recommend her for other couples.

We were so happy with our choice to use Noelene as our celebrant, she spent a lot of time getting to know my partner and I before the wedding, and was such a calm and friendly presence on the day. We are very thankful for all of her hard work.

26 Aug 2016

Our beautiful day was one to remember & having Noelene as our celebrant was one of the many wonderful aspects of the day. Professional & kind, extremely informative & on the day spoke with heart & humour, exactly as we hoped. Thankyou for being a part of our wedding x
