Let's get Married

How do you picture your day? 

The fairytale wedding with lots of guests or Small and Intimate with Minimal guests. Perhaps you want a hassle free “Legals Only” Ceremony  with just you both and some witnesses, which ever you decide. 

You will need a Celebrant.

What does it cost to get married?

My fee 

From $500 

Consideration is given to a traditional wedding with up to 100 guests and within a 100klm radius (give or take a few klms) of my home. A written quotation confirming my all-inclusive price will always be offered.  

Additional : As I travel the state, I do charge a small additional fee if I am required to travel distances (and if required accommodation). I charge a fair and reasonable costs for these add ons.  You will know these prices from the start.. no surprise addons.

From $390 

In my homes garden or office or a local park 

*Conditions apply with regards to number of guests at my home 

Couples choose elopement ceremonies when they want to share the moment of their vows only with each other, or if they wish to enjoy a stress-free, romantic and private ceremony sometimes before their public wedding. 

Or perhaps you just don’t want to or need to tell anyone.  

In Australia … It is not like the movies or tv shows… An elopement still requires the lodgement of your Notice of Intention to Marry to be lodged a minimum 30 days prior to your wedding date and no more than 18 months. An elopement ceremony is conducted with minimal or no guests in attendance  (only witnesses)
