Albury, NSW

Offering personal service for Weddings, Commitment Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Naming Ceremonies in Albury-Wodonga and surrounding regions in New South Wales and Victoria.

HOW DO WE GET STARTED?

 

Weddings

  • Contact me for a no-obligation meeting to see if I'm the right celebrant for you. If you do not live locally then I'm more than happy to Skype or FaceTime with you. Picking the right celebrant often comes down to a good personality match so it's important that we meet prior to me accepting your booking.

  • Both parties to the marriage will need to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage Form and submit it to me no later than one month prior to the wedding and no longer than 18 months prior.

  • Prior to the wedding I will need to sight original copies of the following documents from both parties:​

    • Birth Certificate OR Passport

    • Photo identification such as a driver's licence

    • Proof of termination of any previous marriages in the form of either a Decree Absolute or a Death Certificate of a former spouse.

  • Work with me to plan a fabulous ceremony with a bit of spark.

  • Prior to the wedding you will also need to sign a declaration stating that you are over the age of 18 years and that there is, to your knowledge, no reason that you cannot legally marry.

 

Commitment Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Naming Ceremonies

  • As there are no legal requirements here all you need do is contact me to arrange an obligation-free meeting to see if I'm the right celebrant for you and, if so, we can get planning for your celebration right away.

WHAT DO YOU CHARGE?

 

In all cases a $100 deposit will be due upon booking, after your first obligation-free meeting, with the remainder due prior to the event.
