What Are You Looking For From Your Celebrant?
Being professional is not just about qualifications and courses, I feel it is about punctuality, appearance, availability, attentiveness and seeing the “project” through from conception to delivery. I have a Certificate IV in Celebrancy from the Academy of Celebrancy, Australia; I am a member of The Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants; Association of Civil Marriage Celebrants of Victoria and also a member of Australian Marriage Celebrants, so you can rest assured you will be in expert hands.
Your occasion will be delivered by an experienced, pleasant & knowledgeable celebrant who works with you to create, a unique & happy ceremony to celebrate the special nature of your relationship. I am interesting; a good public speaker and know the “tricks of the speaker’s trade”. Depending on your requirements these can include, variety, humour, drama and interest, which will ensure that everyone is included and really appreciates and enjoys your special day.
Value For Money
On the face of it celebrant fees seem high for what appears to be such a short amount of time which is why some will choose to cut costs in this area. This is a false economy as a “cheap” celebrant can have a disastrous effect on your big day. The time and effort I put in to planning your individual ceremony such as; Initial response to enquiries, quotations, client visits & interviews, ongoing contact, on-site rehearsal, consultation & preparation of wedding documentations, preparing registration documents, legal attendances, provision of information & resources, ceremony preparation, finalise and print client booklet, attend & conduct the ceremony can easily amount to 10 hours work. In addition there are travel costs, office equipment, insurances, materials, etc.
You will soon see that my fees represent excellent value for money once you take those factors into consideration.
This is one of the most important parts of my celebrant services. I will make time to meet you personally. This is to see how you get along with me and for you to decide whether I am your type of person before spending any money. During this meeting I can provide useful resources, help and information. I can also provide you with detailed information on ceremonies, vows and traditions. I am also always available to give you the advice and assistance you need to make your dreams come true.
I am passionate about what I do, I always put 100% into everything and I am sure that I can provide the dream wedding or celebration that you have always wanted.
