Your Celebrant

Help! What do you need to know about getting married?

For most, this is your first marriage, and maybe, you have never been to a wedding, so where do you start?

To get married, legally in Australia, all you need is an Australian Civil Celebrant [me], two witnesses of legal age [18 years old], fill out and sign the legal paperwork [which I organise for you], and of course, the 124 legal words that must be said.

Everything else, is amazing, and can create the most amazing memories, but it isn’t a ‘must’.

Before you book me, you should:
  • Have a ‘one on one’ meeting with me, in person [at no cost to you, but the meeting point is at my discretion]

    I will NOT book any ceremony without meeting my couples first, as my client connection is the most important thing to me. We must connect, vibe, feel comfortable with each other, that way, you KNOW we will curate the most amazing ceremony for you both.

    If we don’t vibe, I will definitely guide you to some celebrants I think would do the perfect job for you. It is more important to me, that you get the wedding ceremony you deserve, not how many weddings I can book,

We vibe = Let's lock it in!
  • We’ve both decided we are a perfect fit for each other, let’s get this wedding date booked.

    We love each other, we feel the connection, so now let’s make it ‘formal’. I will email you the following:
    – Client Form Sheet that you both fill out
    – Invoice, which is broken into 4 equal payments [this will be explained during our initial meeting]
    – Contract will be sent once client form is returned

  • Fill out the legal paperwork

    We’ll catch up, either in person, or over Google Meet, get the Notice of Intended Marriage [NOIM] signed and lodged
