Questions and Answers

How long should a ceremony go for?

WEDDINGS BY YAZMIN

On average a ceremony goes from 25min - 35min. It's important to remember that people are coming to see you get married, if it is any less than 20min your guests will feel a little ripped off. Ceremonies shouldn't be boring, in my experience no one has ever told me that a 35min ceremony felt long or dragged on. This also takes in to account the time it takes for the bride, bridesmaids and the rest of the bridal party to enter, the signing of the paperwork and a song for the Bridal party to exit.

How do celebrants work out their pricing?

WEDDINGS BY YAZMIN

The majority of people only see a celebrant working for about 30 minutes at the ceremony. What they don't see is the hours of work put into making the ceremony happen. Multiple meetings with the couple, getting to know them and understanding their vision for the ceremony, pages of paperwork. Writing a bespoke ceremony to suit each couple can take hours. Not to mention the annual fees and Ongoing Professional Development that must be taken every year to remain a celebrant. So even though it looks like an effortless 30 minutes of work, each wedding is approximately 15-20 hours of work. 

Also be aware that if a celebrants fee seems a lot cheaper than others, in most cases you will get what you pay for. Do your research, meet with multiple celebrants and find who is the best fit for you. 

 

How many times should I meet my celebrant?

WEDDINGS BY YAZMIN

There should be an initial meeting (either face to face or on the phone) for you to get a feel of them and ask all the questions (see below). 

Once you book in that celebrant, you will meet to get started with the paperwork -the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM), this is when the celebrant gets to know you, and they should be asking you lots of questions. 

Usually then you won’t see your celebrant until closer to the wedding day, to go over final details, have a rehearsal or at least block where the bridal party are standing, entering and exiting from etc. 

There should be communication between signing the NOIM and your rehearsal. I always send couples a draft of the ceremony I have written at least one month in advance, so that there is plenty of time to make any changes. 

 

What happens after the wedding?

WEDDINGS BY YAZMIN

Your celebrant will lodge all of your paperwork to Births Deaths and Marriages, this may take 2 weeks to be processed. On your wedding day you will sign a ‘decorative’ wedding certificate - this is not a legal document but is much prettier than your legal certificate.

You will receive your legal certificate in the mail around 1 month after your wedding.m

This is what will allow you to change your last name if you decide to. 

 

What are some key questions to ask a celebrant?

WEDDINGS BY YAZMIN

If it is your first time getting married, you probably don’t know what to be asking your potential celebrant. Here are a few to get you started and will hopefully give you a good idea if they will be a good fit for your wedding. 

What kind of style of ceremony do you typically offer?

What is your process - from this meeting to after the ceremony?

What happens if for some reason you are unable to make it to the wedding?

Why did you become a celebrant?

What sets you out from the rest?

Do you have a limit of meetings and communication we can have?

How much control and flexibility of the ceremony can we have?

What will you wear on the day?

What does the fee include? 

What is the cancellation policy? ...

What equipment do you provide?

We absolutely loved dealing with Yazmin! She stuck with us through 3 rescheduled weddings (thanks covid) and still kept us excited, even though there were times we were so close to giving up! She took a lot of time to get to know us so the ceremony was tailored specifically to us, helped us get our stuff (and words) together! This led to an amazing ceremony on the day. We’d met with a few celebrants at the start, and are sooooo happy we decided to go with Yazmin! A few of my friends who had gotten married recently also did say they wish they’d gotten her instead of theirs! If we ever do get hitched (haha), Yazmin will be there front and center!

Wen - You and Lionel had pretty crappy wedding luck (thanks Covid) but what we pulled off on the day was fabulous! Thank you for being such a chill couple and having me stand next to you as you both said 'I Do'

Our wedding day would not have been so perfect without the soul that is Yazmin. Meeting Yazmin she took time to get to know us, listened to what we wanted and made us feel calm and relaxed. Her professionalism and wit made communication a breeze, even making us laugh to lift the stress, answering all questions and concerns with love and support. Yazmin went above and beyond, supported us with our vows to deliver the most special 20 minutes of our lives! The part we are most thankful for is her ability to make our ceremony exactly what we wanted - simple, to the point, not too long (hubby’s request), very personal and helped our love for each other shine through. We received beautiful praise and feedback on our ceremony about how ‘full of love’ and ‘unique’ it was. It was perfect.

Janka, thank you so much for your kind words. I am so so pleased that the ceremony was everything you and Luke dreamed of. I loved getting to know you both on a deep and personal level. I felt so privileged standing next to the both of you, as you vowed your love to each other and in front of your loved ones. Thank you and all the best with married life :)

Yazmin made the whole process relaxed, fun and ensured the day was full of love and laughter all round! She was great with communication, and helping us with all our questions leading up to the day. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to make our day exactly what we had imagined :)

I am beyond happy we found Yazmin to be our celebrant! She was articulate, personable, well spoken and really just an absolute pleasure to work with. She was born to be a celebrant, from start to finish I feel like she really got to know us as a couple which helped her perfect our ceremony. Here I was thinking the party (reception) was the best bit but honestly the ceremony was so special and Yazmin really was the reason for this. We even had some forgotten Wedding bands and she kept everything calm and on track. I would 100% recommend Yasmin to any newly engaged couples she is absolutely amazing! Thanks again Yazmin <3

Yazmin was the perfect celebrant for us! She tailored the ceremony to our preferences, was well prepared and a great host for the ceremony. She made us feel relaxed and confident. Couldn't ask for more!

30 Apr 2022

Yazmin was absolutely amazing! We felt so at ease from our first meeting and the actual wedding day was a dream! She made the ceremony exactly what we asked for… casual but full of happiness and love. So many of our guests commented on what a great celebrant we had. Would highly recommend Yazmin if you want a smooth and stress free experience

We engaged Yazmin to be our celebrant and MC. Upon meeting her we felt confident in her services and she did not disappoint! Leading up to the wedding, she made sure everything was in order, we had rehersed the walk down the aisle and checked over our vows. Yazmin was fantastic on the day! Our guests commented on what a great job she did for the ceremony and being also the MC for the reception, they loved seeing a familiar face and voice for the whole day. She made sure the night ran as planned, kept us informed of what was to come next and was adaptable all night. She helped take care of everything so that we could just enjoy the day a d we are so thankful for that. Overall we would highly recommend Yazmin's services to anyone looking for a fresh modern take.

16 Apr 2022

Yazmin was personable, warm and very professional. We had a great time with her and are so happy we chose her as our celebrant. We got loads of compliments from our guests about how authentic Yasmin’s work was. We would recommend Yazmin to anyone getting married!

9 Apr 2022

Yazmin was absolutely amazing. We met her at a wedding expo and felt comfortable around her straight away. She's very chill, down-to-earth and has a great sense of humour. We wanted a sentimental ceremony but also wanted to keep it light-hearted. She created the perfect blend by asking us questions and listening to us talk about our relationship and journey together. She also put up with me sending some last minute emails about adding things to the ceremony (I wasn't the most organised bride), and she didn't blink an eyelid or make me feel like I was annoying her haha. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you, Yazmin.

2 Apr 2022

Yazmin was our celebrant and was bloody brilliant! We had so many comments on how amazing she was and how much she absolutely nailed our vision! Highly highly recommend Yazmin to anyone planning on getting married she goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Yazmin was our celebrant and MC for our wedding. She is down to earth, funny with the best jokes, has a relaxed demeanour yet professional and just a lovely, beautiful person. She was the best match for us and I couldn’t have been happier to have her be apart of our special day. I can’t thank Yazmin enough on how helpful and accommodating she was leading up to the wedding day with the planning process. She made it so easy for us by helping with the run sheet as we no idea how to draft one and provided so much advice that I felt more confident than before about the wedding. On the day of our wedding, Yazmin was amazing and I had so much trust to leave it in her hands to make sure everything was running smoothly. It was such a hectic day that i had no time to make sure we were running on schedule as per the run sheet, but I knew Yazmin was taking care of it behind the scenes. Thank you so so much Yazmin. You were the MVP and I couldn’t have had a wedding without you.

Yazmin was our celebrant and wedding coordinator on 19/3/22. We were initially drawn to Yazmin's funny, easy-going and down to earth nature. She didn't disappoint at all on the day - all of our family and friends raved about how great she was during the ceremony, she made everyone feel really relaxed and her words were natural and individualised to us perfectly. Yazmin has been the perfect mix between relaxed and organised (to help us get organised!), we're eternally grateful for her part in our day.

18 Mar 2022

Yazmin was a fantastic celebrant for our wedding! She really went the extra mile in providing a personal and authentic ceremony. She wrote and rewrote our ceremony script till we were 100% happy, overall it was a pleasure to work with Yazmin. She was calming, organised and friendly - we would happily recommend Yazmin to anyone who is looking for a celebrant. 5 star service!

Yazmin was incredible. From the second my now husband and I met Yazmin we KNEW we had to have her as our love hustler. She is professional, organised and makes the process sooooo easy. What really amazed me with Yazmin was her ability to encapsulate our relationship so well! She was so fun to work with and loved having a laugh which takes away a lot of the stress. I couldnt imagine my (uhum sorry... "our"..) wedding day without Yazmin's bubbly personality. We had Yazmin as our celebrant as well as our MC. I coudlnt have asked for anyone better! Thank you so much Yazmin for being a huge part of our amazing day! We loved having you there with us.
