Frequently Asked Questions
How do I change to my married name?
It’s not as hard or time consuming as some people say, especially if you have an Easy Name change gift card from me.
If I am your Marriage Celebrant, I will order your marriage certificate from BDM on your behalf and the Easy Name Change gift card will take you through the name change.
Simply follow this Easy Name Change link and select the $39 kit or upgrade to another option. You will save up to 8 hours and no standing in line at Services NSW! That’s a win/win for you.
What sort of ceremonies do you conduct?
What sort of ceremony do you want?
Just the two of you and 2 witnesses, great, I love elopements.
You’ve always dreamt of every family member joining you at a great big family wedding? Fantastic, let me co-ordinate your ceremony.
Or something smaller, more affordable, I’d love to make your ceremony one you will remember for all the right reasons.
Whatever you choose is fine with me and I’m happy to offer suggestions to personalise your ceremony and supply samples of vows to choose from if you don’t want to write your own, or I'm more than happy to write vows that you will love.
What does your fee cover?
All meetings, all phone calls and emails. Some travelling on the day of the wedding, depending on the package you choose, the rehearsal beforehand and completion and lodgement of all legal documents.
If you are stuck for someone to provide music for the ceremony I am happy to download any ceremony music required and play via Bluetooth through my PA which is what I use for the ceremony. T&Cs apply.
Are you insured?
Yes I am fully insured and I have a permit to conduct ceremonies in the National Parks.
What equipment do you provide?
I have a high quality PA, a signing table is available if it’s needed. Once we chat I can let you in on some other “props”.
How do I choose my Celebrant?
Make sure you like your celebrant! Remember your wedding day isn’t a rehearsal, it’s the real thing and it has to be just what you want.
Personalities differ and types differ dramatically so it’s important you like your celebrant and you feel comfortable with them.
Don’t base your choice on price. The good ones can charge what they like, the not so good ones have to charge what you like.
Where will you perform ceremonies?
Wherever or whenever you want to marry is absolutely your decision and as your celebrant I will work with you.
I suggest that there is PLAN B for any outdoor weddings.
What is your cancellation policy?
When you decide that you’d be happy with me as your celebrant, the first thing we do is fill out the Notice of Intended Marriage.
Within 7 days your lodgement fee is due. At that point I hold that day for you. If for some reason you decide to cancel, that fee is non-refundable, it is however transferable to another mutually acceptable date.
The final payment for your wedding is due 1 month before the ceremony but if there is a cancellation after the 30 day cut off there would be no refund. Of course there are always exceptional circumstances.
How many weddings do you
book per day?
Usually only one wedding per day but I’ve sometimes had an early morning or an evening wedding in close proximity so I’ve managed two.
