Elopement style ceremonies

Do you want to get married without all the fuss and pomp? 

Just you two and 10 guests with a  simple and intimate ceremony. I adore these ceremonies and love to make them special but fuss-less.

If you just want the 'words and the paperwork' this package is for you.

Here’s just a couple of things to point out to avoid disappointment.

  • Maximum 10 guests + the couple. And don’t try and get all sneaky and ‘forget’ about the other 30 that just ‘showed up’. Be nice to your poor little celebrant just trying to make a buck in her business (yep, it happens).

  • These gorgeous ceremonies are pretty quick, 5 – 10 minutes long. It’s just an intro from me, some legal wording, your own vows, and sign paperwork. 

  • To help keep costs down and because it’s small and intimate I don’t bring my PA or microphone along to these ceremonies.

  • What days? I’ll happily marry you Sunday thru Thursday in these ceremonies. But if it's a Friday or Saturday you need let's chat, I'll see if I can fit you in.

  • Location? Sydney metro is no problem but outside of Sydney there might be a small travel fee (see my Travel Costs page for more info -link below)

  • Witnesses? No witnesses - no problem. I can help you with that for an extra cost - $100/witness

  • Additional - the official Marriage Certificate issued by the state relevant Births, Deaths & Marriages - $65. I can request this for you or you can apply anytime after registration. 

And here’s what else is included;

  • Two meetings – first to meet 'n greet and second to sign paperwork and pull your ceremony together (we can meet via Zoom if that’s easy)

  • Personalised, individualised vow cards (so you don’t have to memorise them)

  • Help writing your vows (if needed)

  • A lovely commemorative marriage certificate + a copy of your ceremony

  • Legal paperwork and registration (within 48 hours of ceremony)

Witnesses must be over 18 and comprehend English

(or an official interpreter is needed)

10 guest maximum – any more and it’s up to the next package

Premium ceremoies

What’s a premium ceremony?

It’s the works. The whole she-bang. The box AND dice.

I’m your wedding-day-wing-chick.

I’ll help you navigate the legal stuff, pull together the threads of your ceremony, and then deliver it on the day in a way you didn’t even know was possible.

I want you to feel all the feelings and if you want your guests along for the emotional ride well stand back baby cause that’s my specialty.

I’ve got great ideas – both traditional and non – that you didn’t even know was possible. Guest vows? Flash mobs? Witness raffles? Granny Ring Bearers? Sure. I got a tonne of ideas to help bring your ceremony to life and stay in your memory for keeps.

What’s included;

  • Unlimited contact – you wanna workshop ceremony ideas? No probs. Want to have a ‘talk thru’ the week before your ceremony? Let’s do it. We could video chat, phone chat, or even go ol’ skool face to face. Tonnes of support.

  • Your ceremony - heartfelt, personalised with a balance of fun and feeling. Not too lovey-dovey – but just enough. I love to re-tell your love story with lots of laughter and a few happy tears.

  • Vow cards - individual, personalised so you don’t have to memorise your vows (and help writing them if you need it). 

  • Provision of the official Marriage Certificate that is issued by the relevant State office of Births, Deaths & Marriages. This will be requested at the time of marriage registration and will be sent directly to you.

  • A commemorative marriage certificate in a presentation folder

  • A keepsake copy of your ceremony script so you can re-live your ceremony all over again

  • On the day I’ll be there early to support you and calm your nerves

  • A detailed run sheet of your ceremony which you share with other wedding vendors

  • My massive planning booklet called "Wedding Ceremony Builder Booklet" which is full of hints and tips.

  • My professional BOSE PA & microphone so everyone can hear your gorgeous wedding

  • I’ll even happily manage your ceremony music (if you're not having live musicians)

  • A ‘talk through’ rehearsal before the big day via video (not onsite) to go through each minute of the ceremony so you can relax on the day knowing I’ve got this.

  • All legal paperwork and registration of your marriage – I’ll do this within 48 hours of registering your marriage.

  • Group photos? Sure, I can help (if your photographers agrees)

  • Where do I travel? Free within Sydney metro - check my ‘extras’ (link below) for locations outside of Sydney (water taxis and city parking additional)

Double Whammy
Celebrant + Wedding MC

What’s a 'double whammy'?

It’s where not only do I marry you as your darn-tootin celebrant, I then back up to be your kick-arse wedding reception MC.

What’s the benefit? Well……

  • I will know you so well after designing your wedding ceremony with you so I will be able to bring that care and knowledge into the wedding reception for you. Bonus – you don’t have to ‘brief in’ yet another wedding vendor either.

  • Just check out the Wedding Bells ‘n Whistles for the ceremony content. You get all of that PLUS………

  • I will get your guests vibed and pumped from the ceremony and just keep that going all the way into your reception.

  • I will work with your venue and other vendors to make sure we hit all the key events.

  • I’ll make sure the speeches don’t go too long, that the photographer knows what’s coming next and the DJ or band is ready with the key dance floor bangers to get everyone up and cutting shapes on the D floor.

  • My run sheets, check lists and speakers notes (oooohhh I do love these) make sure everything is covered and you get the best wedding ever. Afterall, that’s what you are paying for.

  • Don’t risk that to save a few dollars and get your best mate or old school teacher to MC. The should relax and be guests and let the professional deliver the best night you never knew existed.

  • Discount? Sure. Book me as your celebrant AND MC I will knock $200 off my MC fees.
