Lets meet up over a coffee/drink (or Video Call) to chat about your big day and to see if we click! We can start the legal paperwork at this meeting or complete later, as long as its done a minimum of 4 weeks BEFORE your wedding date! I will explain all 3 stages of legal paperwork to you at our first meeting.
Once you have locked me in with your deposit, I will send you my “Ceremony Kit”, that will help you make some decisions about your ceremony ie vows, readings etc.
Approx. 4-6 weeks before your wedding, I will send you the 1st draft of your ceremony, for your approval/edits.
If possible, we will meet up again, approx. 4-6 weeks before your wedding day, or we can have video chat. I will walk you through your ceremony, step-by-step, minute-by-minute, and I can answer all your questions like: how do we stand for the ceremony; do I hold my flowers the whole time; who holds the rings?
Your big day has finally arrived!
I will arrive about 1 hour before the ceremony, with my checklist of things to do and people to meet /brief. All you have to do is turn up looking fabulous and feeling excited; enjoy the ceremony we created together; and then it’s time to celebrate!!
Being a celebrant is more than a job for me. It is something that fills my soul in a way I never imagined. I have been marrying couples for over 11 years and there is nothing more wonderful than working with a couple to plan their ceremony, and then see their joyful and excited faces on their wedding day. That is the best!!!!
"Thank you Catherine for being part of our special day! Upon first meeting you, we knew we needn't look further for our Marriage Celebrant. Your beautiful down to earth personality, guidance and professional organisation of our ceremony, was so very appreciated."Steph and Brent
