So you need a Marriage Celebrant, and you’d like to know what the process is? 

Here’s how to do it!

Step 1

Let’s connect! Whizz me an email ( and we’ll start chatting. In the first instance, I’ll need to know your ceremony date, the type of ceremony you’re after, and where you’re holding it. 

Step 2

We catch up for a coffee/wine/beer/milkshake (whatever you fancy, really!). It’s really important that we work out if we’re the right fit for each other, and get a feel for the kind of people each other actually is. 

Step 3

You book the date and pay your booking fee. 

Step 4

The date you’ve booked is now “yours”, and we’ll start the process of getting things rolling for creating your ceremony. I’ll send you a questionnaire to fill out, which will give me a heap of information to help me in writing your ceremony. 

Step 5

We’ll catch up again to go through your ceremony once more. We’ll finalise as much as we possibly can (if not all of it!). 

Step 6 

Let’s rehearse!! We’ll get together and have a practice, which is always a laugh and lots of fun while everyone gets their head around what they need to do, and when!

Step 7

All of your paperwork will be lodged, I’ve sighted your legal documents, and your rehearsal is done, it’s now time for the fun part!!

Step 8

The day of your Ceremony is here!

I’ll arrive at least 30-40 minutes prior to the wedding start time, to set up my bits and bobs, and make sure everything is ready to go by the time you arrive. 

I’ll be frocked up and looking fancy, and you’ll have access to my sound system too. 

Step 9 

Let’s get you hitched!! It will be lovely, and fun, and everything you could ever wish for. It’s official…you’re married!!!!

Step 10

I’ll lodge your paperwork after the ceremony, and it will be extra official!!
