FAQs

Are you a qualified marriage celebrant?

Yes, I am a fully registered marriage celebrant and also a funeral celebrant. I am also a formally trained actor. This enables me to conduct your ceremony with style and grace

Where are you based?

I am based in Melbourne, but happy to travel as required

Do you marry same sex couples?

I most certainly do. Please see the Ceremonies page here for details

Will you create what we're looking for?

That is the whole aim of my services. I want to create a ceremony that is uniquely you, as it should be

Can we contact you between formal meetings?

Yes, you can. Please feel free to contact me when you wish

What legal documentation do we need?

As your celebrant, I am here to guide through the legal requirements of getting married 

First and foremost, we will need to complete the Notice of Intended Marriage or NOIM. This needs to be completed at least one month prior to your wedding date

If you were born in Australia, I will also need to see your passport or official birth certificate. Unfortunately, certified copies are not permissible. If born overseas, I will need to see your official birth certificate or passport. If your birth certificate is not in English, it will need to be translated by an accredited translator

If you have been married previously, I will need to see divorce papers from your most recent marriage or the death certificate of your spouse

If you are unsure of how to obtain documentation, I can advise you how to approach this, but we must allow sufficient time prior to your wedding day

What are the costs of your wedding services?

Wedding packages start at $700, depending on your requirements. This includes:

-Initial meeting and consultation

-Tailor made ceremony

-Contact at any time

-Rehearsal

-All legal paperwork

-The Big Day

-Keepsake certificate

If after our first meeting you wish to engage me as your celebrant, a $200 non-refundable booking fee is payable. The balance for your ceremony must be paid in full seven days prior to the date of your wedding. Please contact me for prices of other services such as naming ceremonies and renewal of vows
