Registry Styled Ceremony & Elopements:
MW – from $400
This ceremony is a similar ceremony to a mid week standard State Registry Office styled ceremony. It includes just you, myself and a small gathering of about 10 people and held at an agreed location within 20 Kilometres of my home. (If required, a travel fee for out of area venues can be negotiated. )
For this style of ceremony I bring only the paperwork, ceremony words and me! I provide no signing table, no sound system, no personalised written ceremony, just a simple, legal wedding ceremony (but you can write your own vows if you wish). If you would like to include some of the “Not Included” components, there will be an additional fee.
Note: A fee is charged by the Department of Births Deaths & Marriages for the official Standard Marriage Certificate (needed for a change of name to legal documents) at the time of registering your marriage.
Classic Wedding Ceremony :
MW – negotiable
WR – from $600
This popular modern style of ceremony is written especially for you and includes your personalised vows, ring promises, poems, readings, blessings… whatever you want in your ceremony to make it unique and special for you. It may be a traditional, informal, or an alternative style ceremony. Your vision for the ceremony will become a reality.
Also included is the use of my PA, signing table with table cloth (but not chairs), signature pens. Items for use in rituals such as Handfasting ribbons/ Sand Pouring vessels/Wine vessels can be supplied by me at an additional charge or by yourself… its a personal preference. This style of ceremony also includes your personal copy of your ceremony as a keepsake.
All Other Occasion Ceremonies:
MW – from $400
WR – from $450
My Payment Terms:
• A non refundable $150 deposit is required, at time of lodging the Notice of Intended Marriage, or at the time of booking for all other ceremonies. This deposit will secure the time and date of your ceremony and is part of the total fee.
• The balance of payment to be paid no later than 14 days prior to your ceremony date.

Please ask about any special discounts I may be able to offer, should it be needed … I do understand.
