Questions and Answers

Are you available on my scheduled date?

A Life Celebrant - Lou Szymkow

I typically will accept only one booking per day to ensure you have my full and undivided attention.

How experienced are have you?

A Life Celebrant - Lou Szymkow

I have been involved in Celebrancy in one way or another for over 30 years but only registered as an Authorised Marriage Celebrant in December 2015. I have performed to crowds from 8 to about 5000, from backyards to major venues.

I mentor a large number of other Celebrant across Australia and have acess to incredible resources so am sure to be able to assist in almost any circumstance (though can't deep sea scuba dive anymore).

Free free to ask any questions or even have a look at my webpage where I have answers to well over 220 wedding questions, (some of which are a bit curly), so don't be afraid to ask me. You may also occassionally here me on radio interviews.

How much?

A Life Celebrant - Lou Szymkow

All my prices are freely available on my website but let's have a chat about where what and when you need with any inclusions, to make your ceremony perfect, and then we can finalise  your investment amount.

I typically spend around 20-30 hours preparing your ceremony and about 4 hours afterwards (more if editing a video for you). You will find I am very reasonably priced given the work I put into each and every ceremony and the level of support you will receive.

I have over 300 wedding questions answered on my webpage, so feel free to throw any questions at me 

Can I just scan everything to you?

A Life Celebrant - Lou Szymkow

You may scan documents to me but I will still need to sight original evidence of eleigibility, date & place of birth, and a photo ID before the ceremony in order to make certain your marriagewill be valid under Australian law.

I have over 200 wedding questions answered on my webpage, so feel free to throw any question at me ??

Can you do all the music?

A Life Celebrant - Lou Szymkow

I have a list of over 400 songs on my web page that you might like to consider and you can of course play your music through my PA but depending on the size of your wedding party, it is always best if you appoint someone else to specifically manage the music so that I can  concentrate exclusively on your Ceremony without distraction.

I can of course run your music remotely from my ipad placed on a stand to one side but do you really want that distraction?

So yes, I can manage your music if necessary but it is always best if someone else does.

Thanks Rhy-ann. I had ball. Was so much fun and such a pleasure to play a part in your incredible day

Lou was amazing as our celebrant for our wedding. My husband's family is polish and he added some polish words to the ceremony which was very cute. He got us to write out our love story and turned it into a nice story on the wedding day. He was perfect for our small wedding as he got everyone involved and really made the vibe of the whole event. He even filmed the ceremony and sent us the video after. This was an amazing touch and we cried as we watched the video.

Lou is just so lovely and made our ceremony and reception (MC) so comfortable, enjoyable and fun for all. The paperwork side of getting married was so smooth and Lou sorted out everything for us. Communication was easy with lots of information and made the process of planning and changing things very easy.

Lou is a positive person. We asked him to use some polish words in our wedding and he prepared a few sentences which was very nice of him. He was very accommodating.

Dear Ola & Dev, Your wedding was so much fun. Your Dad reading in Polish, You and Dev saying yours vows in Polish and English. and of course getting everyone so involved at every step was such a pleasure. Every single step was an absolute joy. Norwest was a great venue choice as well.
