As a marriage celebrant, I believe it is the ceremony itself, far more than the decorative details of the event, that expresses the substance of your union; it’s the wedding ceremony that will last in the minds of your guests, and it’s something that no-one should skimp on.
Every ceremony I create is individually written, crafted and designed. I promise to give you my full attention at every stage, and draw from my wealth of experience.
We will meet to plan, discuss and create the wedding ceremony that you envisage. Unlimited consultation time is available via telephone or email.
Please find below an indicative scale of fees that represents the time it takes to custom-design your ceremony. Depending on your requirements, it can be very time-consuming to plan, liaise, write and co-ordinate the logistics that will ensure a well run and original event.
When weighing up the value of a customised event, bear in mind that a Registry Office wedding, which is a standardised, very short, inflexible ceremony with provision for only limited guests, and is not held at the location of your choice costs $500 plus.
