Wedding Ceremonies

I have been a dedicated marriage celebrant for the past 3 years. I am a member of the Association of Authorised Marriage Celebrants Australia Inc. (AACA) - a national body of professional celebrants and Australian Marriage Celebrants Inc  (AMC).

Please refer to the Testimonials page of this website; this will reassure you of the professional services I offer as a celebrant.

If you are looking for a cost effective, small wedding – consider the options below:

Quite often couples may wish to have a quiet, legal ceremony with just 2 witnesses, or perhaps only have their parents and siblings in attendance. This is still a beautiful event and the advantage to you, is that you can have the legalities conducted in a personalised manner at your home, or my home, if required.

You are welcome to hold your ceremony at my home for small groups of up to 6-8 guests at no extra charge. My home is nestled in North Rocks, a beautiful natural bush area, and I have an undercover area should the weather turn bad on the day. I can also provide champagne and finger food if required for a small extra charge.

Wedding Ceremony Rates

I am an experienced, professional celebrant and offer reasonable rates for both extravagant and intimate ceremonies. I do not have a set fee, as I feel different couples have different requirements, therefore my charges will vary.

As a guideline, the N.S.W. Births Deaths & Marriages Registry charges a lot more for just a basic  "registry style" wedding.

Please feel free to call me and have a chat about fees and ideas – I believe nothing is impossible and I pride myself on good old fashioned personal service.
