Weddings

For many couples the ceremony can be the most daunting part of planning a wedding. It’s normal to be a bit nervous but it really doesn’t have to be so scary.

A lot of reassurance will come from choosing the right celebrant.  If you're comfortable and confident in your celebrant, you won’t need to worry and can relax and enjoy getting married instead.

How do we get started?

  • Send me a message via the 'contact' tab'.
  • I will organise an obligation-free face-to-face meeting so we can have a chat about what you are after. At the meeting I will provide you with a breakdown of services and fees.
  • Once you have chosen the package for you both,  you can secure your wedding date in my diary with a non-refundable booking fee.

Packages to choose from:
