Five things you need to know

image1

1 - All Marriage celebrants in Australia must be registered with the Attorney General's Department and are given a unique registration number.

2 - By law, you must give one months notice of your intention to marry and original documents such as birth certificates, passports and driver's licences must be sighted by the celebrant before the Wedding day.

3 - The cost of a Marriage celebrant varies as the celebrant sets their own price. So shop around, compare prices and services and check that the cost is all inclusive.

4 - Check what your celebrant provides. A good celebrant should provide:

*a good quality sound system with blue tooth connectivity to play your music. 

*a personalised, unique ceremony written just for you.

*a signing table.


My fee includes all the above plus your unique couple's story, no travel fees up to 50kms, a pre-wedding practice and all legal paperwork including the official registered marriage certificate.

5 - Make sure that you feel comfortable and confident with your choice of celebrant. You want someone who is professional, helpful, flexible, warm and friendly and whose focus is on making your Wedding Day the best day possible.

About Me

Hi, I'm Michelle. Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I love being a Marriage Celebrant! From the first meeting to the final ceremony, I feel so privileged to be invited into people's lives and entrusted with performing a ceremony that will help make their day perfect.

I am a former primary school teacher and currently work in medical research at HMRI but my favourite job is being a Celebrant. I have always loved a good story and so I love to offer my couples a personalised story about them which I read at the beginning of the ceremony. This makes the ceremony more meaningful, interesting and fun for the couple and their guests.


I would love to help you plan your upcoming Wedding so please email or call me anytime for a chat.
