What happens when we meet you, do we have to commit too?

I am all about being completely transparent and I always offer a free meeting to see if I am the right celebrant for you.

I believe that you should “shop around”. If you have never been married before it can be so daunting to know what is involved. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that I have collated over the last 70 weddings I have done.

Q: Where shall we meet you?

A: I am happy to meet you in a coffee shop , at your home or in my own private office at 5 Lee Court Boambee East

Q: What do we bring along with us?

A: That depends on whether you would like to meet first and see if I am the right Celebrant for you-which you can discuss and decide afterwards and let me know OR if you would like to get the legal paperwork underway then bring your original Birth Certificates, Divorce etc (which I will discuss with you) and a form of ID and we can lodge the NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage) Form with me.


Q: What will you talk to us about and how long will this initial meeting take?

A: I will ask all about you both, details of the weddings, what you would like included in the Ceremony ie special mentions, any special rituals, if you would like your story included but I am here to guide you through the whole process. It is fun and easy and I am here to ensure the ceremony is exactly what you would like. I will make suggestions and I have an excellent and simple to use wedding booklet which you take away to use to develop your ceremony too.

This usually takes around ½ hour or as long as you like.

Q: What happens after that? How often do we see you?

A: I sometimes only meet couples the day before the wedding if they live interstate and have either chatted via the phone or Skype! I am here for you and after the initial meeting it is up to you. We definitely get together a day or so before for a rehearsal and more paperwork and I find most couple are happy if we work on the ceremony via email. I am happy to go with each couples preferred way of communication and am available as often as you need me.

I will blog some more question and answers but feel free to call if you have any questions on 0417 861 045!
