OVERVIEW

With all my powers combined, I am certain that I can give you the fun, energetic & unique ceremony you have always dreamed of.

We all want our special day to be romantic… but you are probably also searching for a celebrant who can keep it playful, modern and memorable and this is what I will provide for you!

 

My name is Claire and aside from being a massive romantic, I have worked for many years performing and MC-ing events, so I have loads of experience. But I became a celebrant because I was attending far too many sweet but (lets me honest) basic weddings!! So I figured that becoming a celebrant would be a great use of my skills. And boy, has it been the best thing I have ever done!

 

I came into this game hoping to offer something new, fun and energetic. So while you are getting ready to make your vows, I vow to you, that I can give you the ceremony you have always dreamed of. A marriage ceremony is supposed to be beyond magical. It is the time that will be forever remembered; when you declared your love for one another in front of your whole crew. 

 

Get in touch and we can discuss your plans so far and the best price for you!

If that sounds like you, get in touch with me and mention this offer to receive a special Legal Ceremony only package! 


Later down the track, after the legals are done and the dust has settled (e.g, borders reopened or confidence in the times restored) you can get in touch with me to officiate your vow renewal infront of all your guests for the big PARTY!! And of course, with a little discount for having me back!

FAQ

I sure do! I take care of all the legal documents that lead you to having your marriage registered with Birth Deaths and Marriages in the state where your marriage was solemnised. It can be pretty daunting trying to grasp all the needs for legal requirements, but I guide you EVERY step of the way! I have plenty of advice on the best/easiest way to smash all that boring paperwork and concentrate on the fun stuff!

I am super flexible on how the vows are written/who writes them. You have to find a process that works for you! Everyone is different; some people/couples find it super easy to whip up some words and others find it really hard to express how much the other person means to them in a perfect little package of words!

With me, I can write everything for you if you would like, I can run mini workshops with my couples who really want to try and tackle the vows on their own, or I can keep writing and sending you different versions until you both find vows that you love.

I try really hard to make sure that the vows are personal. Rather than talk about "the theories of love and marriage", I focus on getting you both to put your own personalities in the vows, so that you are promising something that comes from your heart in words that resonate with you and your relationship!

First of all... Thanks!!! Can't wait to chat to you!

 

Generally I will send you an email as soon as I can to let you know if I am / am not free on your date!

WOW. Where to even begin. Claire made arguably the hardest, most nerve-wracking part of getting married so much easier and fun. From the initial meetings to the numerous email communications, the wedding rehearsal and then the wedding day itself, Claire’s enthusiasm and humour was infectious, and she spread all of that to our guests on the day. She created such a warm and wonderful environment for us and our guests. She really cared to get to know us and our relationship as a couple to make sure our ceremony was unique to ourselves, and broke the stereotype that wedding ceremonies are stiff and formal affairs. If you’re looking for a celebrant who you can trust will take care of you and make your day as special as it can be, then we could not recommend Claire any higher.

Claire was incredible, she made our day so special. She was so professional from start to finish and her service really captured our personalities. She helped us deliver a casual yet fun wedding ceremony (whilst doing all the legal requirements). My Dad had passed away 4 months earlier, so it was a difficult day but Claire was able to help us savour those moments but also bring us out of those moments with her sense of humour and class. She is genuinely funny, smart and charming and it was an honour to have her marry us. I wouldn't have chosen anyone else and would love to do it all again...just to have Claire as our celebrant.

Claire is ahhhmazing at what she does! Scott and I felt as if we’d known her years. She was the perfect fit to tell our story and provide a bubbly, vibrant service. Our guests even commented on how lovely she was, and how she knew her stuff. Liv xo

Any advice on writing my vows to my wife-to-be?

Married By Claire

Hi Nathan! 

First! Asking for help is the best start and you have already covered that by asking here! So you are off to a flying start!

Your celebrant will be there to help you for sure!

Sometimes I find that I ask a groom to write how they feel in any format they feel like the words flow eg, dot points, short sentances or one big chuncky paragraph -  whatever works for them first up. Then we workshop it together to get it to work in a classic vow format or find a way to make it their own in a way where their dot points etc sound more smooth and articulate. Image that you are giving me all the "golden nuggets" of info and I (the celebrant) fill in the blanks and make it work. 

Hope that helps! :)

do you think celebrants would be up for flying to officiate a destination wedding?

would i have to pay for their flights accommodation food etc

Married By Claire

Hi!

That is a great question! I guess, celebrants all have their own personal commitments to consider.

I can only speak for myself when I say that I am lucky to be free of any big commitments (eg children or other work commitments) that would stop me from traveling for a destination wedding.

For example, I have two weddings coming up in Sydney that I am flying to officiate as I currently live in Perth. The additional cost I have asked for is for the couple to pay my flights. They are also paying accommodation for the night before and night of the wedding. Aside from that, my fees for the actual ceremony and the services leading up to the wedding don't change.

If it is a wedding I can drive to (eg, 3 hours away) I ask for an extra amount to cover petrol and accommodation for the night before.

I like to be where I need to be the night before, as you can never be to sure that you wont have a delayed flight or car trouble, so having that extra night allows for security.

I hope that gives you an idea of what you need to consider and what we as celebrants need to consider also.

 

Always with love,

Claire - Married By Claire.

how do i choose who signs as our witness?

Married By Claire

Hi. You want to be able to look at that wedding certificate forever and be really happy that person was there for you. They may or may not be in your bridal party, but whoever they are, they should be the kind of person that whenever you think of them they make you smile.

Of course they need to be over 18. Keep in mind that if this person doesnt understand english very well, you may be asked to get an interpreter.
