Something went wrong, please try again soon.

When I meet a celebrant what do I need to take with me?

Most celebrants will ask you to bring your Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) with you and ID to be able to prove your identity.

There is a legal requirement that the celebrant verifies your identities. The documents need to be original, the most common are either your Passport or Birth Certificate. If you choose to use your Birth Certificate, please ensure that you provide your current Drivers Licence to be able to produce photographic evidence of your identity.

What if I am planning an outdoor wedding and it rains?

Don’t panic – we will just move to our backup plan that we discussed in our initial meeting. So sit back in your car and enjoy the ride to your special day – we have it all covered.

What if I forget my vows?

Its ok, you have enough on your mind – you don't need to memories them, just let them be from your heart. But just in case take a breath and read from the card, which I will have ready for you with your vows printed on them. Remember - I am there to take the stress out of your day and deliver you the ceremony of your dreams.

I have noticed that the bride always stands on the left and the groom on the right - do I have to?

Traditionally this is correct, however at a civil wedding you can choose to stand where you like. Sometimes it is nice for the couple to face each other and at other times to face their family and friends. We can talk about this as we plan your special day - remember it is your day and you can do anything you want. 

What kind of weddings suits me?

A wedding is a special moment in our lives, for some it brings back memories of past experiences, and for others hopes and dreams of the future.

A wedding is a milestone that allows for a couple to publicly declare their love and commitment to each other. The day needs to reflect your personal style and taste. Be it traditional, sincere, laidback, fun, grand or intimate – speaking to me and telling me your story will assist me to plan your wedding and make it a memorable moment in time.

I am interested to have a ritual – but not sure which one or what type will suit my wedding?

It is your day and everything in your ceremony needs to reflect you and your partner’s wants and needs. There are a large number of rituals available to suit all styles. When we meet up we can discuss these as we go through my Wedding Kit and plan your special day.

What does a civil marriage celebrant cost?

Across Australia, the costs for the services of a civil marriage celebrant vary considerably. Please don't base your choice of a celebrant just on cost. Choosing a celebrant is a very personal choice - you might save $100 - $200 using a cheaper civil celebrant who only does 1 or 2 weddings a year, or someone who is new. But remember it is the connection that you make with the celebrant and how they can tell your story and deliver on your dream day that is most important. A good celebrant will spend between 10 and 20 hours planning, writing, meeting you, attending a rehearsal, filing the legal paperwork, officiate on the day and ensures that your wedding goes to plan and that you get to enjoy the moment you have been waiting for. Let your wedding be remembered for the right reasons, and not because of the wrong reasons, but you save that $100 - $200. If you have a strict budget, call me and let me see how I can help you - please dont let price be your main decider when selecting a celebrant.
