A Blueprint to Unique Ceremonies

Weddings should be a celebration of one of the most joyous occasions in a lifetime, but too often they’re stressful and nerve racking for the happy couple. With 17 years of wedding celebrant experience, I can help you create a wedding celebration that’s fun and relaxed while still respecting the gravity of the occasion.
My first step as a wedding celebrant is to get to know the two of you, so that I can help you incorporate your unique style into your special day. Whether you want help writing your vows, want to include family and friends in your ceremony, or need expert information and guidance to settle your nerves, let me make your special day fun instead of stressful!

Frequently Asked Questions
ALL THE ISSUES YOU NEVER THOUGHT TO ASK ABOUT
If restrictions get in the way of your ceremony, we can reduce guest numbers to meet new guidelines. If it’s a total lockdown, we will work with your wedding venue to find a new date and amend the paperwork. If you decide on a new date that is 18months after you originally signed your Notice of Intended Marriage a $150 fee will apply to relodge this documentation.
No, you can get married in Australia if you’re here on holiday and aren’t a citizen. You will just need to complete the legal documents as per Marriage Act 1961 and double check that an Australian wedding ceremony is legal in your home country.
The most important document is your Notice of Intended Marriage. This must be signed and lodged within one calendar month of your wedding day and no earlier than 18 months before your big day.
If you want to be married in less than a month and don’t have time to wait for the paperwork, you will need to apply for a shortening of time with a prescribed authority. Once you’ve completed the Notice of Intended Marriage I can guide you in the next steps.
No. This is your wedding and if you don’t want the drama of a big family wedding, you don’t have to have it. All you legally need is two people who are sober and over 18 as witnesses.
I am completely supportive of same sex weddings and very pleased and proud that the marriage act has finally caught up with our diverse society.
You will either need a passport (expired or not) OR your birth certificate along with photo ID, preferably a driver’s license. If you were married previously, you will need a divorce certificate, certificate of annulment, or a copy of the death certificate if your spouse passed away.
All documents must be in English and if not, they will need to be translated into English by a certified translator.
Make sure you check the testimonials and the packages I offer to confirm that I’m the right celebrant for you. If you’re sure about your choice, you can set up a meeting in my office in the Swan Valley.
