Create a Memorable Experience
on Your Wedding Day
“It’s the way your future husband looks at you as you walk towards him ...
... while "YOUR SONG" is playing"
The Romance of it all!
That’s just one of the magical moments I get to see as a celebrant. It’s all very romantic that’s why I love my job.
I get to meet couples at a wonderful time in life. I am here to guide you and help you through the whole process. I’m with you all the way, as we prepare for your wedding.
My celebrancy work allows me to share my passion with others and be a part of their special ceremonies. I love creating and performing ceremonies and I’ve been told my enthusiasm shows.
I would be delighted to be your celebrant
We will have two or three meetings (or more if necessary) so I can get to know you and then write your authentic story. You might like to share the proposal. Your guests will get such a buzz. Let’s inspire them.
And on your wedding day I see the guests are nodding along and smiling as I tell your story. And for those who don’t know your story, they are very attentive and interested in hearing it. It’s the way I tell that story. (I don’t just read from a script).
Your wedding should be personal and fun
Let me create a relaxed atmosphere. I want you to feel at ease and not have to worry about anything, because I’ve got it all under control. Your invited guests are also looking forward to having a good time at your wedding. And they won’t be disappointed. I’ll make sure of that!
You are the centre of attention
I want you to have a stress free day. I will take care of everything. I can manage difficult situations. I am very organised and efficient. I am calm, flexible and patient. On your wedding day, I will be there an hour early to make sure everything is ready and perfect for you.
wedding legal steps
Once you contact me I will arrange for us to meet. This is where we discuss the type of ceremony you want. A fee is not required at this initial meeting. You get a chance to meet me and decide if I am the right celebrant for you. I will give you a list of what you need to bring for our next meeting.
Notice of Intended Marriage
This is the first legal document. To be completed, signed and lodged with me, one clear month prior to your wedding. This document is valid for a period of 18 months. I need to see original Birth Certificates and some photo ID (driver licence or passport).
At this meeting we will start the process of your ceremony. I will explain how we prepare your ceremony and what we can include. I will be guided by you as to what you want. We can include wedding traditions, poetry, readings and more.
I will prepare the first draft of your ceremony and email to you. Feel free to make any changes. You can call or email with any questions.
If you feel that you need a rehearsal, yes by all means we can do this. We can practice the Vows and the Ring Ceremony. With a rehearsal you will feel so relaxed and totally ready for your big day.
On your wedding day I will arrive an hour early to make sure all is ready for you. The exciting moment is then waiting for the bride to walk in.
