We can do this... we just need to be creative and flexible. With the latest relaxation of the Covid-19 rules, weddings are going forward... with a little different format. Social distancing applies, gathering limits are growing larger, and there is a little more documentation needing attention. All in all, a good sign as South Australia has been doing a great job of staying ahead of the virus.

Marriage... this is a very person thing between two people.  Sharing it may be difficult during the COVID-19 Rules period of isolation.  Be it is STILL about the two of you.  What can we do to celebrate the two of you now... and the whole family, friends, and loved ones at a later date?  The 'lock down' will not last and my calendar is still very flexible.

After living 35 years in Alaska and being asked to help perform a couple of bush weddings for friends in the ‘Alaskan Out Back’, I realized I have a strong belief in the celebrations of life.

In this increasingly crazy world we live in, when someone can find their soulmate, this is the beginning of something very special.

As a storyteller from a young age, I also love to express feelings, passions, and life with words. Every couple has a unique and wonderful story to tell.

I would love to help you start a new chapter in your story.

Questions and Answers

Who Am I?

Mitchell Coulthard - Celebrant

I'm American born, educated in Las Vegas, Nevada, forty-five years in Data Processing and Information Technologies - the last thirty-five before coming to Australia as an Alaskan business owner and technologies consultant.  Having decided I needed to figure out what I wanted to do 'when I grow up', I chose to sell my business and take a serious sojourn... kind of like taking a rather late gap year.  Ending up in Australia, I reconnected with someone I had worked with online many years ago.  We had a cup of coffee... and she would not let me leave.  Now retired (mostly) from technologies, I've begun my new vocation and avocation as a writer and celebrant.

What are my fees?

Mitchell Coulthard - Celebrant

Celebrant fees vary widely – from $250 right up to $1500 and more. I’ve found the average to be about $650, varying with popularity and experience of the celebrant.  I choose to anchor my fees here for the time being.  But, with the variability in wedding ceremonies, am delighted to discuss options and see what we can do for you.

What do my fees include?

Mitchell Coulthard - Celebrant

My fee includes meeting with the couple – several meetings – the writing of the ceremony, the performance of the ceremony, and lodgement of all paperwork.  I like to include some extras to the ceremony to make it all the more special for you.  I am a bit of a stickler for organisation so I often use checklists and insist upon at least one full rehearsal - usually performing several rehearsals by myself to be certain everything flows and is ready for your big day.

What additional costs are involved?

Mitchell Coulthard - Celebrant

Beyond my base fee, there are occasionally additional charges such as travel.  You may also wish to include additional ceremonies such as a Sand Ceremony, Water Ceremony, perhaps including kids and family members.  I try to include as much as I can without affecting the price, but it’s a good idea to discuss all of these upfront so there are no surprises.

What are my legal qualifications?

Mitchell Coulthard - Celebrant

An Australian marriage celebrant qualified to perform marriage ceremonies anywhere in Australia, must be registered with the Attorney Generals’ Department and have carried out training (including yearly training) in order to perform their role.  Australian celebrants can’t just register online without this specialised training.  You can check your celebrant has the qualifications to legally perform your ceremony by checking with the Attorney’s General Office online.

 Thank you thank you thank you soooo much for a beautiful ceremony!!! It was more beautiful then i could have imagined. With the covid restrictions i didn’t put much thought into the ceremony and i have to say thanks to you it became so much more special and memorable than what i first imagined which was just the formality of singing the marriage certificate. Everything unfolded and evolved beautifully. Thank you for making our special moment more meaningful. I had a hard time holding back the tears when you did the soulmate reading
