To Book Me As Your Celebrant
Meet & Greet
We usually meet at my office in Railton for the initial meeting. However we can overcome distance issues and arrange lodgement of your paperwork easily
You will receive a book of ideas and suggestions for you to select readings, poems and vows for you to choose from or for inspiration if you are wanting to write your own vows.
I spend quite a bit of time writing you a personalised ceremony script that you approve.. if you hate it, I will rewrite it or adjust it.. until you love it!
Do you really want a Wedding rehearsal? or a read through (I don’t require one but will attend one if YOU want one (for any weddings of any distance from my office and alternative address to be agreed on or extra travel will be incurred)
The Big Day
I greet you at the alter on your wedding day and perform your Ceremony in front of your witnesses and guests.
I pronounce you LEGALLY married. (Whatever you want to be called, we can arrange that!)
PA System (Weather and venue pending)
Pay your lodgement and booking fee via direct deposit (bank details are included on attached quotation
Arrange a time and date to meet and sign your Notice of intent
We can meet first. A very casual meeting, where we can talk weddings… If you like what I can offer, and would like to book me, we can complete and lodge your paperwork. Payment of your lodgement and booking fee is required with lodgement of your notice.
