Frequently asked questions
How long have you been a celebrant?
I started marrying loved up couples in late 2008! Best decision I ever made and the best job...EVER!!!
We would like to book you. How do we do that?
Awesome!!! If you have decided to have me as your celebrant, thats great! Smiles all round!
Do you travel for weddings?
Sure do! There would be an extra travel fee added, for weddings further than the 50km radius from my home.
How many times do we meet?
I love to meet my couples at least twice, if that is possible, but Video Chats are always good for a 2nd meeting, if distance and job commitments make it difficult.
What is the paperwork we need to complete to get married?
To simplifiy the process, I always tell my couples there are 3 stages of Legal Paperwork:
How much notice do we need to give before we can get married?
The minimum notice that you need to give a celebrant is 1 month before your wedding date.
How do you put together a ceremony?
Two of my Wedding Packages are for Non Personlised Ceremonies, so they are a "ready -made" ceremonies. They are still gorgeous and meaningful, and suit most couples needs. However, you can add your own personal touch to these "ready-made" weddings, by writing your own wedding vows. I have a "Tips and Tricks" Cheat Sheet to help you write your vows, or I have plenty of "ready-made" vows for you to choose too.
Do you have a PA?
I have an awesome professional and super loud Mipro PA which can also be used for your music, if you wish. There is no extra fee for the use of my PA during the ceremony.
What if it rains or it is really hot on my wedding day?
This is one of the first questions I will ask a couple when I meet them is, "do you have a back plan?" As your celebrant, I'm more than happy to stand in the rain, if you are happy to do that also, but your guests may not be too thrilled about it.
What if you are sick on my wedding day and can't attend?
Rest assured, I have a network of celebrants that I can contact at a moments notice to step in and officiate your marriage.
Do I have to memorise my vows?
Absolutley not!!! And I would never encourage that either. Your wedding day is such a high emotion day, you do not need that extra stress on top of all the excitment. Having said that, in all my years of marrying couples, I have had 2 grooms memories thier vows and they both nailed it.....but they were a bit nervous.
Do you do more than one Wedding a day?
Are there Standards and Guidelines that you need to work by?
You bet I do!
