Weddings

Your wedding ceremony can be informal, formal, spiritual or themed and can take place anywhere you desire for example, in a chapel, a park, on the beach or your own back yard.

Initial Meeting

At our first meeting, which is obligation free I will show you my 'Comprehensive Resource Folder', which details sample ceremony structures and sample passages for each aspect of the service. For example, presentation of the bride & vows, as well as poems and symbolic rituals like the Ring Warming, Unity Candle Lighting, Sand Sifting, Hand Fasting or Rose Ceremonies. Have you considered having a Butterfly or Dove Release. There are so many wonderful options and creative ways that children or special people can be involved in your day, which I would love to discuss with you.

Bookings

If you decide to confirm your booking with me at this meeting we can complete the 'Notice of Intended Marriage' (NOIM) form which must be received by your marriage celebrant no later than one calendar month and one day prior to your marriage date. I would have requested you bring documentation such as your original Birth Certificates. Passports are not accepted as valid identification, unless you are from overseas and don't have your Birth Certificate/s. If either of you have been divorced or widowed you will need to show me the original Divorce/Death certificates. I will complete & lodge all the required legal paperwork on your behalf.

At this meeting I would also request you pay a booking fee which secures your wedding date and covers ceremony preparation. The balance of my fee is payable anytime up to one week prior to your marriage. Full details of my fees and refund policy will be provided to you at our initial meeting.

The Ceremony

After the initial meeting you will have unlimited contact with myself via phone and email. Further face to face meetings can be arranged and I would also recommend a rehearsal, prior to your wedding but this is optional. On the day, I will arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your ceremony to prepare and I have adequate audio equipment to ensure the ceremony will be enjoyed by all your guests.

Together we will create a personal and memorable ceremony, which celebrates your relationship.
