My Services and Fees
Creating your Ceremony with Care


I am based in Ashgrove, Brisbane and offer celebrancy services in and near Brisbane, including the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Toowoomba and northern New South Wales.

CEREMONIES
I perform a range of ceremonies, including name-giving, wedding, gay/lesbian partnership, and funeral ceremonies.

As your celebrant I will:
• give you as much of my time as needed to plan your ceremony – either at my home or a place of your choosing
• write a ceremony for (and with) you – including provide suggestions for readings and sub-rituals if you want to include these in your ceremony (plus an "inspiration starter" kit of tips and resources)
• give you all my attention on your special day – I accept only one booking per day
• be at the venue at least 30 minutes before the ceremony’s start time and set up as required
• for weddings, ensure that all the legal documentation required for your marriage is satisfactorily completed and lodged with the relevant authorities according to law
• give you your official Marriage Certificate
• comply with the Code of Practice for Marriage Celebrants under the Marriage Act 1961.

I will also
• give you a copy of your ceremony in a presentation folder to keep as a memento
• provide a portable PA system if not provided by the venue
• conduct a wedding or other ceremony rehearsal at the venue if you want (for a small additional fee)
• give you a commemorative certificate for partnership, naming or other ceremonies.

MY FEES
I provide a professional service to meet your needs and expectations, and you will find my fees to be competitive.

My standard fees from 1 January to 31 December 2016 are:
• weddings and civil partnership declaration ceremonies (Qld)– $500
• other partnership ceremonies – $350
  ¤ commitment 
  ¤ gay/lesbian partnership 
  ¤ renewal of vows
• name givings – $200 (+ $15 per additional child, if more than one)
• house blessings – $100
• funerals – $350
• other ceremonies – as negotiated
 
I may include additional charges if any of the following are required:
• a full rehearsal conducted at the venue – $75 
• travel in excess of 80 km in a round trip – $1 per km
• any unusual items or activities specifically for your ceremony – as negotiated.

In certain circumstances (e.g. an elopement or a wedding involving immediate family only, to be held in a small, private, intimate setting) I may consider offering a reduced service at a reduced price of $300. If we agree that this is an appropriate option, you will be able to choose one of three simple, standard marriage ceremonies  (no frills, no extras) — Simply Legal; Simply Classic; or Simply Romantic.  
Please note that, depending on the location, there may be additional travel costs (e.g. mileage).

Contact me for a ’no obligation’ chat or meeting about your ceremony.
