Frequently Asked Questions by Engaged Couples

Popular queries from couples about pricing, wedding planning, venue, availability and legal requirements.

What are the different wedding packages you offer?

Currently, I offer three wedding packages.

‘Short and Sweet’ weddings are just that: no fuss, intimate and contain the required legal aspects with typically the couple, two legal witnesses and me present. Some people refer to this type of ceremony as a ‘legals only ceremony’.

‘Micro Weddings’ are small, not very lavish and involve a small group of friends and family – typically between 10 and 40 in number. They involve me providing a couple with a standard ceremony that we customise to their needs.

‘Superior Weddings’, in comparison, are more extravagant. We start with a blank sheet and compose a wedding ceremony from scratch. The couple gets access to my digitised wedding ceremony planner that contains lots of samples of the various parts of a wedding ceremony – and they vote on the pieces they really love. When they press ‘submit’, I get sent their favourite pieces and begin to put together the first draft of their ceremony. I add to that, the couple’s responses to my ‘love story’ questionnaire that I send them. After I send the couple their first draft, I ask them to hack it around  and return it to me. We go back and forth adding and deleting bits and pieces, until we’re all really happy with the final draft.

Would you help us with the wedding planning?

Sure! After I’ve got to know a couple a little bit, and their wedding plans, in their first meeting with me, I start suggesting ideas they may like to consider for their ceremony. These ideas vary from couple to couple. Couples find this refreshing – and lots tell me they had no idea of what to include in a ceremony – or how to make their ceremony different from others. Gradually, these ideas make their way into the first draft that I send them. We then go back and forth until they have in front of them a ceremony that reflects them, and that they’re really happy with.

What makes you different from the other celebrants out there?

The thing that drives me is ensuring that I give my couples a ceremony that ‘gets’ them and reflects who they are, and their relationship. I’m really good at coming up with suggestions of new things to include in ceremonies, depending on the couple. I also love writing – it’s not a chore to me. And I make the ceremony about the couple – not about me or my ego.

How can we reach you?

You can drop me an email, call me on the phone number provided, live chat with me on my website, or video-conference with me via WhatsApp (+61410456327) or Zoom. And when the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, we can meet the old-fashioned way – catch up over a coffee!

Are you a full-time celebrant?

Yes, I work as a full-time wedding celebrant. Bringing people and help them tie the knot gives me immense happiness. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

How much do you charge?

My fees vary from $649 to $1999. They depend on the location of the venue, the complexity of the ceremony, the scale of the event and the time I spend drafting it and delivering it. You can be assured that there are no extra costs or hidden charges, when I give you a quote.

Where can you wed us?

I can wed you wherever you want! If you are in Australia, and planning to get married in Melbourne then any venue space works. For, although I am based in Pascoe Vale, I travel all over Melbourne and the regional part of Victoria and interstate.

When would you be available?

You can reach out to me online or meet up for a cup of coffee. I have a very active online presence. You can even look me up on social media and check out my work.

What makes a good wedding celebrant?

A successful wedding celebrant is someone who would ensure a smooth and hassle-free wedding for the couple. As a wedding celebrant I make sure that my clients are comfortable and happy. A wedding a beautiful lifelong bond, it is a day of joy and celebration. And I ensure that you get the fairytale you deserve.

Do you take care of the paperwork?

Of course, I take care of the entire event- both practical and aesthetic aspect of it. This would involve checking your documents, verifying the paperwork, and ensuring that your wedding is properly registered.
