Working with a Marriage Celebrant
What does a Marriage Celebrant do?
Want a bit of insight into what happens from start to finish?
Then, here you go... it is 12 minutes long, but it goes through the entire process of working with a celebrant.
If you want to meet in person/online/chat on the phone before you commit to anything then let's do that. Talking through things always helps.
My wedding packages are outlined on this site, but if you have any questions, sing out.
And for anything outside of the box, then let's chat and we can come up with a fair price together.
I've been a celebrant for a long time now, so I can offer you ideas and advice throughout the process, but it is your day, so it is absolutely YOUR way. There is no right/wrong.
I work for YOU.
When you're happy that you've found the right person for your team, you can confirm your booking with a retainer fee.
Depending on which wedding package you choose, you will receive the following helpful resources:
A Guide to Getting Married - valuable information to have at your fingertips.
Readings for Weddings - lots to choose from!
Writing Your Own Vows - a handy document to have.
Music ideas - for entrance, signing and exit.
Based on meetings, chats and a fun questionnaire, a bespoke ceremony is written for you to consider, which will be fine-tuned until you are 100% happy with it.
When the time is right, you will get a reminder to apply for your marriage licence.
Rehearsals are a REALLY good idea for bigger occasions. They help everyone involved to be calm and confident on the day. Don't panic. You don't have to run it. All you have to do is turn up (please note this not included in all packages).
On the day, you and your guests will have a wonderful time, looked after every step of the way. With a strong skill base in public speaking, performance art and teaching, you've got a chameleon of occasion working for you who knows how to read a room.
A forever memory is made.
Renewal of Vows is a similar process to above - just without the legal bits and with a retrospective of what has been before. POA.
My vow to you…
You will have a celebrant who loves her job,
You will have a celebrant who is professional, caring and pays attention to detail
You will have a celebrant who strives to exceed your expectations.
