What can affect the prices?

 

Like people, each ceremony is different, so therefore each quote may be different depending on your needs. Please remember not to base your decision on price, rather remember that the celebrant you choose is vital to setting the tone for the rest of the celebrations. Some celebrants compete on price, others compete on being a professional!

 

I always recommend meeting the clients first before committing to anything.  This meeting can be at my home office on the lower North Shore or a café nearby where we can go through the paperwork stuff.  You get to ask all the questions you want, so that we can get to know each other, as I am here to help your ceremony run smoothly!

 

Then we do a rehearsal* on site if possible the week leading up to it, with the bridal party, the person giving you away, and anyone else involved in the ceremony.  This is to make sure that everyone knows where everyone is supposed to stand, their roles and we know where the sun is, traffic, parking, tourists and animals will be.

 

Then on the day, I turn up about an hour beforehand, to make sure everything is where everything should be, and if not, I can make the changes.  I have time to prepare, help ensure the set up is to your requirements, do a sound check, and basically welcome all the guests as they arrive!

Things that can vary the price:

 

- Harbour cruises - as we need to be on board where the boat normally is docked 1-2 hours prior. Additional $199 

- Regional locations - as we need to drive there, and allow more time, just in case of traffic, and this means we cannot do any other ceremonies on the same day, and sometimes 2 days if it is inter-state. Additional cost of $299 

- PA System - whilst my system can cater for up to 250 people outdoors, some locations need bigger ones or additional speakers, as wind, musicians, open space and location can vary.  Additional $POA

- The Theme - you may require me to wear something to match the theme of the wedding, this will be charged accordingly. Additional $POA
