How To Get Married

Heres’s how it works. 4 easy steps!

1. Lets Meet!

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. 

2. Plan and Paperwork

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.
A
pprox. 4-6 weeks before your wedding, I will send you the 1st draft of your ceremony, for your approval/edits.

Kristen and Michael

3. Meet Again

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?

4. Get Married!

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!!

Your Sydney Celebrant-Catherine Kennedy

Hey lovely people! For over 15 years, I've had the absolute pleasure of being a marriage celebrant and let me tell you, it's not just a job, it's my calling! Being a celebrant fills my heart with so much joy and fulfilment that I never knew was possible. The best part of my job? Working with my couples to plan their perfect ceremony, however that may look, and then seeing their gorgeous smiling faces on the happiest day of their lives! Being a celebrant isn't just about fulfilling a role, it's about being a part of a magical moment in the lives of two people in love. And let me tell you, there's nothing better than that feeling!

"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
It was a joyous family affair when Narelle and Mark made it official. ❤️❤️
Just each other’s children and their grandchildren to celebrate the occasion, at Stanwell Park beach standing in front of a beautiful tree that was beautifully symbolic of the new extensions of their new family tree. 🌳 

Thanks to fabulous photographer @paulgolbachphotography for sharing the images….and for recommending me to his father-in-law Mark to be their celebrant. Thanks a bunch, once again Paul. 😘

These 2 lucky couples managed to get married on a cool Sunday morning…… in between showers. Sydney’s winter has been unseasonally wet ☔️🌧️ but we nailed it! The rain returned as we all jumped into our cars to leave…phew. Congratulations  to Selene and Wilfredo, and Maisa and Gabriel. 💖🥂Sunday morning Wedding Celebrations are pretty special. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

The cold temperature on the day of  Lian and Nicole’s wedding at @bendooleyestate is now a distance memory. 
Perfect winter sunshine ☀️ and I was able to watch them have some gorgeous photos taken at “Golden Hour” before the drive home. Stunning 🌅

I helped a beautiful family say farewell to their sister, mum, and ”Grand-Mum”, Aunty and cherished friend, this morning. 😇
This beautiful soul was the epitome of resilience,strength  and determination, having lived with many health challenges throughout her life , yet never complaining or letting  any adversity get in her way. A true inspiration. 💖

The family gifted me a beautiful candle as a thank you, and the wording created by her 2 children reads:

“ Mum. Someone that sees the best in her kids, even when they drive her crazy. One person who does the work of 20 for free.”😉

Yep….. 😊💖

No crazy winter wind 💨 rain 🌧️ and or cold temperatures, was going to stop these 3 couples from getting married at Cronulla yesterday! 
What a ride it was! ( Im totally thawed out now thankfully 🤣) 

1 couple used their back up plan at home,  and the other 2 couples braved the elements with a sheer grit and determination. 
Regardless… I left them all with hearts full of love 💖💖and smiles on their faces.  Congratulations to all 3 couples. ❤️❤️❤️

Something sweet 💖happened on this Tuesday morning…..Michael and Tifanie are planning a bigger celebration in France next year but today was about making their relationship official in Australia with just a handful of special people in their lives including family who flew in from NZ 🇳🇿 and France 🇫🇷. 

With their 3 month old son in their arms it was a perfect setting while listening the sounds of the waves 🌊 behind us.
