Marriage Celebrant

Forecasting a
beautiful life together

My role is to plan the ceremony, conduct the ceremony and ensure that this is the best day of your life ...

  • After our initial phone conversation, we will meet for about an hour in comfortable surrounds to get to know each other. I will give you a wedding pack. You will need to bring requested documents i.e. birth certificates, driver's licences (and copies) plus the "Your Personal Ceremony" paper work completed and the Notice of Intended Marriage. I will have sent the YPC & NOIM to you prior to complete.
  • I will write your personal ceremony, suggesting readings, vows, music etc.
  • You are entitled to unlimited consultation by phone or email with me.
  • I comply with the Marriage Act 1961 and other laws and I will be responsible for organizing all the legal requirements.
  • Your wedding certificate will be professionally printed and handed to you on the day of your wedding.
  • I can suggest/recommend suppliers (photographers, make-up etc).
  • I will arrive about 20/30 minutes before the ceremony & officiate a 30-minute ceremony.
  • I will wear a suit and tie.
  • I will make your special day as stress free as possible.
  • My background as a TV journalist and presenter will give you the confidence of a polished, professional, fun and friendly celebrant
  • I will supply a professional sound system, with 2 cordless microphones, to ensure all guests will be able to hear the ceremony. I will play music as guests arrive. You may play your music during the ceremony through my system via CD, USB stick, iPod or iPad and simply choose a guest to play it.

Thank you so much for being a very entertaining and caring celebrant. Everyone loved you and the ceremony. We both did not expect to be so emotional and apparently there wasn't a dry eye on the beach! I can't wait to receive our photos so we can share some with you.

Thank you so much for a fabulous ceremony - so many people commented on how much fun it was and that it suited us perfectly. We loved it and it was exactly what we had imagined. The whole wedding was such a success we are thinking of putting in a submission to Real Weddings showcasing our big day, if you would be happy for us to mention you and the fantastic service you provided us we'd love to help spread the word. We want every couple to have the dream day we had.

Thank you so much for everything! We have still been in such a bubble since the big day and Thailand that I don't think I've had the proper chance to thank you properly! It was such a joy to have you involved in our special day and you made everything very relaxing and stress free for us. We would highly recommend your services to our friends and family and we will be happy to send you a few copies of the professional photos of us all to you.
