Ceremonies

I have been lucky enough to officiate ceremonies for so many amazing couples since 2007 and have performed hundreds of ceremonies here in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Regional Queensland, Bondi, Melbourne and many places in between.

I offer you a professional, creative and affordable ceremony designed just for you.  I would love to chat to you more about your ideas for your ceremony and learn more about what style of ceremony you would like.

Whether you would like a fully personalised, bespoke ceremony, a legals only ceremony, I have years of experience and suggestions on how to make your day amazing.


Bespoke Ceremony $1,150

I would love to create a ceremony for you that captures the essence of your love for one another and tell the exciting story of your journey together.

  • A meeting before the wedding at my home office in Newmarket (this is when the first of the legal documents are prepared and you will discuss your ceremony)
  • PA System and microphone for use during the ceremony
  • An awesome Ceremony information folder to borrow with heaps of ideas and examples of vows, exchange of rings, readings etc
  • Preparation of all the legal documentation before, during and after the ceremony
  • Documents lodged with the Office of Births, Deaths and Marriages
  • A full rehearsal at chosen venue (within 50km of Newmarket)
  • Unlimited in-person, email and phone contact
  • A fully personalised ceremony written for you
  • Ceremony performed at chosen venue (within 100km of Newmarket)
  • Copy of your ceremony
  • One official marriage certificate from the Registry Office (this can take 2-3 weeks to receive this after your wedding)
  • Ceremonial Marriage Certificate (received on the day of your wedding)

Legals only ceremony $400

Similar to a Registry Office wedding, but you don’t have to travel to the CBD, or wait in line, and be just a number. All you need is yourselves, two witnesses* and me and we can do a legal ceremony at my home office in Newmarket.  You can still write your own personal vows too!  We don’t even need to meet in person beforehand, we can meet over Skype/Zoom, and all the pre-ceremony legal paperwork can be done via post and email.  Then we meet on the day, sign some paperwork, do the legal ceremony and you are married! (*Maximum of 4 extra guests). To find out more information about completing and lodging a Notice of Intended Marriage in Australia, click here.  If you require a Visa letter for Immigration purposes, this can be provided at our first meeting for $100, and is payable at this meeting.
(Not available between 12pm – 5pm on Saturdays.)
If you would like to have your ceremony at an alternative location, please contact me for a quote.


Overseas Visitors

Yes, you can get married in Australia if you one or both of you live overseas.  We don’t even have to meet in person until the wedding day if you are travelling until then!  We can chat over Skype to discuss your ceremony and I can explain the all the legalities required.  To find out more information about completing and lodging a Notice of Intended Marriage in Australia, click here.


Payment Schedule

A $300 non-refundable Lodgement of Notice of Intended Marriage fee and booking fee is payable within 15 days of booking to secure your ceremony date and time with me.  The balance of your fee is due within 30 days of your ceremony.  Cancellation of your ceremony within 30 days – the full fee is still payable.  Cancellation more than 30 days of your ceremony and your fee will be refunded, less the non-refundable booking fee.  If your ceremony needs to be postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions, all monies paid will be transferred to the new date (pending Natasha is available on the new date).
