Every person has a unique life story and I really enjoy listening to the many different experiences so I can write a very distinctive and individual ceremony to reflect your personalities. Your ceremony will reflect your dreams, goals, visions and expectations for the future together.

The ceremony is for you and all about you!

I am a resident of the Inner West and cater for the Sydney and outer metropolitan areas, however, I am also happy to discuss travelling further afield if required.

Ceremony Pricing

As no two ceremonies are the same please get in touch with me to discuss your ceremony.  Together we can tailor a package that suits your needs.

To see if your ceremony date is available please fill out the booking form at the bottom of the site here.

Elopements

(up to 4 persons)

You may decide to have a very small, intimate, short and sweet wedding in a more picturesque place rather than a Registry office, with only your witnesses. I can arrange this too, however, all legal requirements must be adhered too.

Vow Renewals

Whether you have been married for quite some time or would just like to relive your wedding day again, Vow Renewals are becoming very popular and are a wonderful way to re commit to the love you have for each other.

I can create a beautiful ceremony to reflect your love, happiness and commitment you made to each other years ago. There are no legal requirements for this ceremony, however, a Commemorative Certificate is available.

Baby Naming

Welcoming a new life into a family is a joyous and wonderful moment in any parent’s life. A naming day is an informal occasion, gathering of friends and family together to celebrate the birth and naming of the child.

I can arrange a very beautiful non-religious civil ceremony where guests can share their thoughts and wishes for the new arrival.

Funerals

The passing of a loved one is a difficult time for family, however, with care, support and understanding I provide, I can make your ceremony a true celebration of the loved one’s life and I will work together with the Funeral Director to ensure your ceremony is warm, heartfelt and memorable.  I can arrange a very beautiful non-religious civil ceremony where guests can share their thoughts, life experiences and friendship.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are a number of queries I receive regarding getting married as couples usually receive different information from other sources. Below is a list of frequently asked questions, but I am more than happy to answer any queries you may have regarding any aspect of your wedding.

What are the legal requirements in getting married?

The ‘Notice of Intended Marriage’ form must be completed no less than 1 month and no more than 18 months prior to the wedding date.All identification documents must be original, ie passport, birth certificate, driver ’s licence. The‘Certificate of no Legal Impediment’ form must be completed and signed as close as possible to the wedding date.

What is required for a Change of Name?

You will need to obtain your full Marriage Certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages at a cost of $56.00. The commemorative Certificate of Marriage obtained on your Wedding Day is not an official certificate for change of name purposes.

However, the Celebrant can include a completed application form with all the relevant paperwork for registration of the marriage and the need of proof of your identification is waived. This is a matter between the Celebrant and couple to agree to.

I have been married 3 times, will I require all of my divorce papers?

No, you will only need your most recent divorce certificate.

Is it possible to complete ‘Notice of Intended Marriage’ form before a divorce is processed?

Yes, however you cannot be married until the celebrant receives your final divorce papers.

I have changed my mind on the Marriage Celebrant. Do you need to lodge a new Notice of Intended Marriage form?

No, it is the responsibility of the first Marriage Celebrant to safely transfer the form to the intended Celebrant, however, you must ask the first celebrant to transfer this form for you.

We married overseas and would like a ceremony with family and friends present. Can we have another Australian wedding service?

No, people who are legally married overseas cannot go through with another wedding ceremony to each other.An Australian ceremony would need to be conducted as a Vow Renewal.
