What I Provide
An initial get-together to meet each other and outline your plans before making a commitment. This is absolutely obligation-free and cost-free. At this time we can fill in your Notice of Intent to Marry. If you decide to go with another Celebrant, no worries, I can fil that Notice in the round file. (rubbish bin)
We will have an in- depth discussion, helping me get to know you better and really pin down what you want. It gives me the information with which to develop your personal story – a light- hearted inclusion in the ceremony, but an important element that feeds into other parts of it, making it absolutely relevant to you.
Regular contact by email / phone to check details as the ceremony takes shape.
A second/third meeting / rehearsal to finalise arrangements and double check every detail of your ceremony. Knowing that every aspect has been planned and communicated makes you more relaxed on the day.
Conducting your marriage ceremony. I’ll be there early to set up, greet guests and calm nerves, fully self-contained with a signing table and a PA system that AC/DC would be proud of.
Completion and submission of all documentation required under Australian law
Please contact me with your wedding date, venue and any special requirements and I'll get back to you immediately
Extra Symbolic Ceremonies may be added to the basic ceremony.
A Unique Pin Number to access my comprehensive folder with examples of wedding ceremonies/Vows/Poems & Readings to have for as long as you need.
My Thoughts on a Celebrant
They should be able to meet with you as many times as makes you comfortable.
They should let you write your own ceremony if you want to. They will add the ``official content``.
They should not put a limit on the time your Ceremony takes.
They should give you a commemorative copy of the ceremony to keep.
They should be members of a recognized Celebrant Association in Australia, and be able to show you proof of being up to date with their training (OPD).
Remember, your wedding ceremony is the serious bit, not the fun bit. You can laugh and cry but it's not the fun bit. That's why you have a reception. That's the fun bit.
