A guide to Wedding Ceremony Packages

Your marriage ceremony is at the heart of your wedding day and it is my great joy to assist you with every step of your wedding journey, from the moment you contact me, until you depart from the ceremony. I offer an end-to-end service which includes all legal paperwork before, during and after the “big day”. There are legal requirements that must be observed in any marriage ceremony but the rest is up to you. I will help you to create a beautiful, bespoke ceremony that expresses all that you want to share. Together, we will tailor a ceremony to encompass all relevant elements, making it meaningful and appropriate to you both. This may include special rites, vows, music and readings that highlight and express your love for each other. You do not have to worry about a thing; I understand how to ensure that your ceremony is warm, memorable, sincere – and representative of you as a couple. I have three tiers of wedding packages available – the Personalised Package, the Essentials Package and the Basics Package

Personalised Package

The Personalised Package is by far the most popular. Preparing a personalised ceremony takes time for me to get to know you well, but the end result is always moving, joyous and memorable. This package allows you and me to tailor the ceremony exactly to your requirements; it is a truly bespoke celebration.

Working together with you, it is my job to create your ‘story’, so that all your guests understand how you got to this point in your lives.

A personalised ceremony gives everyone attending the wedding the opportunity to feel connected. There are so many rituals and cultural themes that can be woven into your marriage ceremony. Your wedding day is a ‘bringing together’ of the most important people in your life: your loved ones, family and friends. When you commit to each in front of your guests, I will ensure it is personal and genuine. A personalised wedding ceremony reflects your individualities and signals the beginning of your future lives together.

Essentials Package

Weddings can be expensive, but when you choose the Essentials Package, you will have a ceremony to remember while keeping the costs down. I use a shorter, pre-written ceremony that is still dignified, joyful and memorable.

You can save even more on the cost of your Essentials Package wedding if you choose to celebrate your special day on a Friday or midweek. See pricing for details.

Basics Package

This is the package for couples who want a “short and sweet” celebration. For some people, the idea of a big wedding with all the expense and drama is not an option; they just want a simple ceremony, but still one to remember.

This package will also suit you if you are planning an overseas wedding but want to have the legal registration in Australia. Remember you will need two witnesses over the age of 18 years.

The best is yet to be!

How much will it cost for my ceremony?

Perhaps, a better question is – what will it cost you if you choose only on price? Remember, each special occasion is one you remember for the rest of your life. Choosing the right celebrant for you as a couple will deliver you more than the dollars you pay! Of course, budget is important for most couples planning a wedding but always aim to make sure that the ceremony is the best you can afford. Below are my fees for the three levels of wedding packages I offer.
