Wedding Ceremonies

Donít want all the fuss of a big wedding?
Short on time or on a budget?
Are you looking for a simple and affordable ceremony? But still with choices?
Perhaps you were thinking of a registry office style wedding?
Or just wanting a few people and your witnesses to attend?

I offer a selection of ceremonies which can be held at a location of your choice
from just $450 and here's how it works...

Step 1: First Consultation (free of charge)
Step 2: Legal Documentation (NOIM)
Step 3: Choose your pre-written ceremony
Step 4: Ceremony Variations (Additional Fee)
Step 5: Rehearsal
Step 6: Your Wedding Day.

Step 1: First Consultation (free of charge)

Call me and have a chat (or e-mail:) and perhaps make an appointment for a complimentary first consultation. At this stage you need make no commitment for a future booking, itís an opportunity for you to get to know me, and to browse through the pre-written ceremonies on offer.

Step 2: Legal Documentation (NOIM)

When you are ready to proceed we complete the Notice of Intended Marriage (see Marriage Legalities page for more information) and formally book your wedding date into my diary. It is at this stage that a deposit is required.

Step 3: Choose your pre-written wedding ceremony.
  • Traditional
  • Simple
  • Contemporary
  • Garden
  • Intimate

Each pre-written ceremony is complete with vows and ring exchanges.

Step 4: Ceremony Variations (Additional Fee)

After choosing your ceremony style, you are then invited to select alternative vows and ring exchanges. I will provide guidance for the legal requirements should you wish to write your own vows, etc

You may also wish to include some beautiful rituals such as a warming of the rings, candle ceremony, or handfasting.

Step 5: Rehearsal or Final Meeting

Should you wish, a rehearsal is included in the fees, itís an opportunity for me to help you both smooth out any nerves and provides a sense of confidence for your Wedding Day. A rehearsal is optional and some couples are happy just to meet and go over the ceremony together.

At this final meeting we will also attend to final paperwork, ready for your marriage.

Step 6: Your Wedding Day.

I will be delighted to officiate at your Marriage Ceremony with the greatest of pleasure and finally
attend to all legal requirements as set out by the Attorney General.

Wedding ceremonies start from $450.
