Fees and Services

Fees & Services

I am happy to display my fees, as I believe in being totally up front so you know instantly how much to allocate in your Wedding Budget. Finding the right Celebrant is a difficult task – it is an important decision. After all they will have a huge influence on the tone of the Ceremony, so you need to feel comfortable with each other and know your queries and thoughts will be heard.

Your Ceremony can be as long or as short as you wish. It is such a big day of nerves and emotion and some choose to say only the minimum requirements, while others have so much more to say!  Don’t worry, I want you to feel as relaxed as possible and together we will find the right words you are comfortable in saying.
