WHAT DOES IT COST TO GET MARRIED?

Your wedding ceremony is the most important part of your wedding day.  The professional and legal services provided by your celebrant will ensure that your marriage is performed and registered within the legislative requirements of the Marriage Act 1961, Marriage Regulations 2017 and Attorney- General's Department.

While your guests will enjoy the ceremony that has been prepared for your special day, it is important to remember that there are a range of tasks that a celebrant spends many hours preparing and organising prior, during and after your ceremony.  It isn't just a 20 minute in and out gig that can often be a misconception about the celebrant role.  Not only are you employing a professional public speaker and master of ceremonies to write, coordinate and perform your wedding ceremony you are depending on their ongoing training, administrative and legal skills and experience to ensure that your marriage is official.  Furthermore, the related costs of maintaining registration, equipment, administration office, car and appearance are expenses of running a celebrant business and reflected in my fees. 

I pride myself on providing a professional and quality service that you can rely on.  My fees reflect my dedication and commitment in working with you to design a ceremony that allows you to share all that is in your heart, making promises that will last forever. I have a variety of packages that allow you to choose the type of ceremony that will be admired by your family and friends. A ceremony that you will remember and treasure forever.
