The Process

May your day be fashioned with joy, sprinkled with dreams, and touched by the miracles of love.

My personal pledge to you:
I will continually provide my support and make sure that we are all on the “same page” regarding the makeup and order of your wedding ceremony.

Step one:
Upon contact, our initial emails and/or phone calls begin the conversation that will enable us to get to know each other and talk about your dreams for your ceremony.

We will discuss what you envision, expect of your marriage celebrant and would like at your wedding ceremony, because this is the one day that should live forever in your hearts and minds, for many years to come. This can determine if we are harmonious, and I am the right marriage celebrant for you.

Step two:
Should you choose me as your Civil Marriage Celebrant, we then arrange the preliminary paperwork and a booking fee to lock in your date.

Step three:
Once the booking fee is paid, we continue our discussions via phone, email or Skype.  In particular, we explore the following:

The legalities and lodgement of official documentation
Any
