FAQs

I’ve listed the most frequently asked questions regarding my ceremony packages, so to help you get more informed about them straight away. If you have any further specific queries, please send me an email or let’s meet, to discuss.
Why would we choose you rather than someone who’s cheaper?

I encourage couples to shop around – to visit other celebrants and make their decision after they’ve met with a number of them. After all, you’re going to entrust a celebrant – someone you probably don’t know – with some pretty personal details, in the lead-up to your wedding – and they’re going to be the director of your wedding ceremony. You need to know they’re someone you trust and can relate to. You need to feel safe with them. And, above all, they and you need to be a great fit! If you get a feeling that perhaps you need to keep searching for a celebrant, then do so. No one celebrant is everyone’s cup of tea. And don’t be offended if the celebrant also lets you know you ought to find someone else who’s a better fit for you. It’s a two-way street. If you want to bargain on price, please go ahead, knowing there are 3 parts of a deal: price, quality and service. Pick two. You will always compromise on one of the 3, if you’re driven by price.

What if I want a wedding that’s in between two of your packages?

My packages represent the services I offer, based on the ceremonies I’ve delivered. No two of my ceremonies are the same, but there are aspects of my services that I offer as packages – you can see the inclusions on this website. I advertise my marriage services in three different, but broad, offerings. They’re intended to give couples an idea of the general possibilities. But I know some couples fall in between my packages. I love it when couples call me wanting to discuss how we can make their wedding fit in between my packages. Invariably, we meet, have a chat about their wedding plans – and then I deliver them a quotation based on what they actually want.

Do you really travel all over Victoria?

As a registered marriage celebrant, I’m authorised by the Australian government to conduct marriages anywhere in Australia. Whilst most of the weddings I’ve conducted have been in Victoria, I’ve also conducted ceremonies for couples in Tasmania, South Australia and New South Wales. And, yes, I really do travel all over Victoria.

Are there any other hidden charges?

When I give a quotation to a couple looking to get married, I proudly let them know that my fee is all-inclusive. For example, if a greater-than-usual distance is involved, then we use technology to carry out some of our meetings to complete parts of the preparation of your ceremony that we’d typically do face-to-face. We also discuss openly if there are additional fees that will be accrued because of the travel time and distance. I believe in transparency. That’s why, when you get a quotation from me, you know there are no hidden charges. And there are no surprises or add-ons.

How much do you charge for a same sex wedding?

It goes without saying that my fees are the same for straight couples as they are for same sex couples. My fees are mid-range and depend on the unique requirements of my clients. It makes most sense for us discuss my fee for your ceremony at the end of our first meeting, when we’ve had a chance to discuss what sort of wedding you’re after.

Can you help us with planning our wedding?

Yes! Years of experience as a marriage celebrant help me create a hassle free plan for your unique wedding experience. You get a free wedding planner checklist when you book your wedding with me.
