Do you have a friend or family member who you think would be a great celebrant - but they are not qualified? With my guidance, you can have a person of your choosing run the majority of your ceremony! I will do all legal work, come to your event and complete the official requirements, and let your chosen person do the rest!
What to Expect:
First Meeting (Narangba, or Virtually).
If you like, you can bring along with your chosen Master of Ceremony.
This will be approximately an hour, during this time we will:
Complete and lodge the Notice of Intended Marriage
Confirm venue details
Discuss my role on the day, and your MC's role
I will provide your MC with a detailed template to use whilst planning your ceremony - to provide structure and ensure our respective parts run smoothly. They don't have to use this - but it is a good starting point to create a basic outline of how the day will run.
Prior to the event, your MC will email me a copy of their script.
I will review, and provide help and advice where needed for up to three drafts.
Rehearsal: I will attend your rehearsal - and provide guidance and support..
If over 20km from Narangba, an additional travel fee will apply
The final ceremony will be sent to me - to confirm all legal requirements are accounted for, and I will bring along on the day.
Day of Event
I will arrive to the event 30 minutes prior to commencement.
I will introduce myself, share any housekepeign you like, and deliver the "Monitum" - legally required to be recited by a registered celebrant. This outlines the legally binding nature of marriage in accordance with Australian Law.
I can then handover to your chosen person - who will use their experience as your loved one to deliver a wonderful ceremony!
Legal Vows must be said by you. It is important these are said word for word - so if you would like, I can assist by using a "repeat after me" style.
We will sign your Marriage Certificates.
I will register your marriage within 24 hours.
Travel within 50km from 4504 is included. If travel to and from your venue is more than a 100km round trip, this will incur additional fee of 80 cents per km.
