CUSTOM TAILORED WEDDINGS

A ceremony that is written just for the two of you. As a team we discuss what it is that you want and my role is to delivery a unique and memorable ceremony. Some people use the term "bespoke" to describe this style of ceremony, I prefer the term custom tailored as it involves more than "just a ceremony". 

Inclusions:

  • A tailored ceremony that is carefully researched, constructed and written in a loving language which best reflects you and your partner's personalities, relationship and wishes. The first draft will be made available to you well before the wedding day and you will have time to review and change things so we get it right. 

  • Assistance with the writing of wedding vows (if you choose to write your own)

  • Appointments as necessary prior to your wedding either face to face or via Zoom/Facetime.

  • All official paperwork, legalities and submission to Births Deaths and Marriages completed.

  • Timely response via email/phone for all communication, questions, concerns regarding your ceremony.

On your wedding day:

  • Professional wireless, portable sound equipment (Chiayo Focus 505 Pro) setup to ensure all guests can hear your ceremony. Cordless microphone for Bride and Groom, headset microphone for me. The setup can also be used to play the music for your ceremony. The music can be controlled by me or a trusted guest. 

  • A signing table draped in white tablecloth to be used for the ceremony (optional)

  • Use of feather pens, LED light ring boxes, Eternity candle (for Ceremony)

  • Access of up to 10 clear umbrellas in the case of inclement weather 

  • A commemorative wedding certificate on the day (you may need to order a copy of official certificate from Births Deaths and Marriages after your wedding day, this can be used for more official things such as changing name.)

  • Your choice of what I wear. Formal, Casual or somewhere in between. You can see from all the photos that I have some fairly unique shirts, shoes and ties that I just love wearing for any ceremonies that I am honoured to be a part of. 

Your investment for me to do this starts at $700.00 and no two weddings are the same. 

Additional Services:

Master of Ceremonies

For those that book me as their Marriage Celebrant and then MC for the reception I offer a special combined rate that includes the following extras:

  • A personal guarantee that I will not book any other work on your wedding day. You will have me all to yourself on your special day as your celebrant and wedding MC.   

  • Up to 2 hours between Marriage Ceremony and reception start time without additional cost 

  • Up to 4 hours at the wedding reception as your Master of Ceremonies

  • An outfit change between both commitments

My cost to provide MC services starts at $590.00
