Where can we get married?
You can get married wherever you would like. If you are marrying at an outdoor venue you should check if council permits are required.
When should I book a celebrant?
The Summer months are the busiest for Celebrants and we get booked quickly. Once you have your date and venue booked then you should book your Celebrant. Choose someone you feel really comfortable with, there should be chemistry! You will be working with your Celebrant for some weeks/months so it’s really important you like them! Make sure you book a celebrant at least a month before you need one, due to the paperwork required.
When is the Celebrant’s Fee due?
I require a $250 deposit once you have decided to book my services. Full payment is required at two weeks before your ceremony and can be paid in cash, card or via internet banking.
Where in Australia do you provide services?
I am based on the Gold Coast, and provide services all around the region. I will happily travel anywhere in the country for an extra fee – see Terms and Conditions.
Do you provide set wedding vows?
I do have a number of set ceremonies for you to choose from or if you wish we can create a unique service just for you to meet your requirements.
How long is the Celebrant at the wedding?
I will arrive about half an hour before the ceremony and stay until the first pictures are taken. I do not generally stay to the reception unless requested specifically as it adds extra cost to the day for you, but I am often invited to join everyone for a celebratory drink after the ceremony.
Do we have to learn our vows off by heart?
You don't have to no, unless you would like to, otherwise you will either repeat after me or read from a card.
Do we have to write our own vows?
It is a personal choice whether a couple writes their own vows. I am able to provide you with a choice of pre-written vows or assist you in writing your own.
Do we have a rehearsal?
It is not essential but I highly recommended a rehearsal. It tends to calm nerves and worries about the big day. It normally takes place the day before the service.
Can we meet you before we book you?
Absolutely! I offer a FREE no obligation 1 hour consultation either at your home, my home or via Skype.
Do you only offer Non-Religious ceremonies?
As a civil/secular celebrant I generally design non-religious ceremonies. However I am most happy and comfortable to include any wording, readings or other material that you want in your ceremony whether that is religious or not.
Can you give us recommendations of other services like photographers?
Yes absolutely check out my Links
