Celebrant Package

I am always conscious that there are many couples who would like a wedding with all the bells and whistles, much time spent on perfecting their ceremony and many thoughts on designing the ceremony according to what they envision.  There are also many couples who would like a short, sweet and simple wedding ceremony.  Both styles, although equally important, are very different.  There are also those couples, going through the process of immigration, who are looking to marry.

With that in mind, I offer three different Celebrant Packages for couples:

The “Short & Sweet” Package (Registry Style)

A lovely, elegant short and sweet registry style wedding ceremony, usually at your home or mine, for couples who don’t want a large wedding.

In summary, the “Short & Sweet” package includes:

  • An initial consultation via email or phone, to discuss your ideas and requirements and what is important for you to have in your ceremony.
  • If you decide to proceed the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) must be completed at least one calendar month and one day before the wedding is to take place. The NOIM is effective for 18 months.  Providing you have the necessary documentation this may be completed at the initial consultation.
  • A thorough explanation, preparation and lodgement of all legal documentation for you.
  • Create and design a beautiful ceremony that caters specifically to you and your fiancée. In doing so, I will comprehensively resource vows, readings and poems that can be included in your ceremony script once the NOIM has been completed.
  • Unlimited communication via telephone and / or email.
  • A PA system so that the ceremony is audible to all guests.
  • A covered table and 2 chairs for the ‘signing’ during the ceremony.
  • A ‘Newlywed Name Change Kit’ for all couples after their ceremony
  • A commemorative copy of your Marriage Certificate.
  • A beautifully bound copy of your ceremony script after your wedding.
  • All expenses in relation to travel in and around the Melbourne Metropolitan area.

As your celebrant, I will create a very special ceremony that is unique to the two of you, which forms part of the all-inclusive fee. A $100 deposit fee is payable within 7 days of booking, which ensures my availability for the date and time of your ceremony and confirms the lodgement of your Notice of Intended Marriage. The balance is to be paid no later than 2 weeks prior to the ceremony.

The “Simply Lovely” Package (Immigration / Fiancé Visa)
