A commitment ceremony is a celebration of your love for each other, and a public declaration of your wish to live with each other in a committed relationship.

Now it’s time to look at everything you need to do to make your day really special.

My role as your Celebrant is to make sure all your needs are met.


What happens now?

1. Contact me via phone or email
During this initial contact we will determine if I am available for the day and time you have selected for your ceremony and we will set a time for our first meeting.

I will follow up with an email confirming our meeting time and place.

2. Obligation free meeting

At our first meeting we will discuss your expectations for your ceremony, and your specific requirements.

This meeting also gives us an opportunity to get to know each other better and decide if I am the right celebrant for you.

3. Confirm your booking

Once you confirm I am to be your celebrant I will give you an invoice for the non-refundable booking fee which is payable immediately (see Fees page), and secures the date and time we have agreed for your ceremony.

4. Creating your ceremony
During our meeting, we will create a first preliminary draft of your ceremony, encompassing the words and vows you want, along with any symbolic gestures (e.g. releasing doves, etc).

We will also discuss your requirements for music, readings, ring ceremony, and the order of the ceremony.

We will keep in touch by email and phone, and can have another face to face meeting if required.

5. Reviewing and confirming the ceremony

After our meeting, I will prepare a ceremony document for you, taking into account everything we have discussed.

I will email/post this document to you and we can then adjust and edit the ceremony until you are happy that it meets your requirements.

6. Rehearsal

A rehearsal at the venue (or an alternate location) can be arranged if required.

7. Final payment

At least two weeks prior to your ceremony date, the balance of my fees must be paid in full.

8. On your ceremony day

I will arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony.
I will be dressed to fit in with the style of your ceremony (as discussed with you).
I will conduct your commitment ceremony in a professional manner, according to your choice of ceremony.
I will provide you with a bound copy of your commitment ceremony as a keepsake, and a commemorative commitment ceremony certificate.
