QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What does my fee include?

All legal paperwork required for marriage registration within Australia.


Your Marriage Certificate all signed and sealed on the day of your wedding.


The best, fun and bespoke delivery of your personal ceremony, especially written for you.


All meetings required to get to know each other and get you all set for the big day (normally 2 meetings).

Swift communication via phone and email and professional, cordless and battery powered sound equipment.

What are your qualifications?

I am a certified Civil Marriage Celebrant and registered with the Attorney Generals Department.

As a celebrant I also complete annual professional development trainings and stay on top of new regulations, changes and any trends that influence the Australian wedding industry.

I am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants (AFCC) and must ahere to their professional 'Code of Ethics'. I attend trainings and professional networking events + hold a professional Indemnity & Broadform Liability Insurance. 

In terms of the writing and performance of your ceremony I hold a Bachelor of Arts and have 15+ years of experience performing in front of an audience as an actor/presenter/performer both live theatre and for television.

Just recently I was awarded the 'Certificate of Excellence' by Easy Weddings for only 5 Star ratings in 2018. 

What paperwork is needed?

I will be responsible for all paperwork and guide you through the process.

What we need when we first meet is your passports or birth certificates, drivers licences and if you've been married before, your divorce papers or other certificates that I will explain. I need to sight the originals and also be sent photocopies/scans of all documents (divorce papers). 

I look after the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) and this form must be completed at the latest 1 month before your wedding date.

I complete & submit  the Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage (to be filled in as close to the wedding date as possible ie. at the rehearsal) and you'll receive the Official Marriage Certificate from me (presented on the day). 

What I always get asked is why I became a marriage celebrant?

I love people, simple.

I love meeting people from all walks of life and hearing their unique stories and what makes them love each other.

It’s such a privilege and honour for me to bring it all together on the day and really make your love shine. Sounds kitschy but that’s really what it’s all about - Facilitating your love and guiding you through all the legalities. I really enjoy bringing it all together and finding the ‘element’ that makes your relationship special. 

I also have a background as an actor/singer/presenter so it’s natural for me being up there in front of all your family and friends, leading the ceremony and painting a picture, bringing your story to life. 

Initially I started MC-ing friends weddings and always loved the vibe of them so it was a natural progression for me to become a celebrant. 

I have now married well over 50 couples and find it such a privilege to work with so many wonderful couples.

With Marriage Equality I'm super excited for same sex couples to finally be able to tie the knot. 

What equipment are you able to bring?

I use only the best brand sound equipment and will bring my battery powered speaker with cordless microphone.

The speaker is super powerful so we can use it for your music as well (walk down the aisle etc).

I normally operate the speaker myself via my watch or a friend/family member of yours can.

How do I book you?

You can easily write me here (homepage, to the right ->), message, email or just call me to discuss the date of your wedding and the location so I can confirm if I'm available. 

Then, we meet in person here in Sydney (when possible) or via Skype if you are interstate/overseas so we can get to know each other and I'll walk you thorugh all the bits and pieces and start creating your very own ceremony. 

I have a wide network of wedding suppliers and experience so I'm always happy to help, point you in the right direction and guide you.  

When do you arrive at the ceremony?

I arrive at the location at least 45 minutes before the start time of your ceremony so I have enough time to set up the speaker and talk to the event manager/ photographer for a quick brief.  

When is payment required?

After our first meeting I'll send you an email with all information we have discussed and an invoice for the deposit to confirm block out your date and time in my schedule.

Full payment is required at our next meeting prior to the ceremony.
