Over the years, civil wedding ceremonies have become more and more popular. This is mostly due to the couple having flexibility in their choice of venue.
It could be at a park, on a river boat, a winery, your parent’s garden, or a special place for you and your partner. It’s your choice!
Civil wedding ceremonies are non-religious and can take from 20-minutes or more to complete.
The inclusion of family members, children, relatives and friends in your wedding ceremony is always welcome.
It is your wedding day and it’s my role as a Marriage Celebrant to accommodate all of your wishes and present a very meaningful, intimate, yet simple ceremony.
I'm always happy to discuss any ideas that you may have to make the ceremony very special.

A deposit of $200 (non-refundable) is required - payable on invoice within 7-days of our first meeting.
Terms & Conditions
Final payment is payable on invoice at least 2-weeks prior to the ceremony.
To avoid a 'late' fee of $100, your ceremony is to start on time with a 15 minute grace period. This fee is to be paid on the day of the ceremony.
I highly recommend you have a rehearsal (walk through) before the ceremony at the place you have chosen to be married.
It is a good idea to have the rehearsal at the same time of day as your ceremony is going to take place, especially if it is outdoors. This way you will see how the sun is positioned; if there is heavy traffic near the parking area and if it's busy with other activities.
The things we will go through at the rehearsal are -
Where to stand if the sun is a factor.
The entrance of the bridal party and where they will stand.
What props are required - chairs, table, PA system etc.
What time will the guests be arriving and when should the groom arrive.
What time will I arrive.
Is there protection from the wind and rain (if that should be a factor).
Any concerns the couple may have about the ceremony.
