Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and, of course, you want everything to be perfect!!

The ceremony itself is what your wedding day is all about... The reason for all the flowers, dresses, photographers and food! As such, it is important that you are comfortable with your celebrant and feel confident that you can trust them with this most special occasion.

In the lead up to your big day, we can meet as often as required and will regularly communicate via email and telephone. Interstate and international clients can relax and rest assured that preparing their ceremony from a distance need not be a daunting process. All aspects of your ceremony, including the legal paperwork and the wording of your ceremony, can easily be completed by phone, email, skype or fax, before meeting me when you arrive on the Gold Coast for your wedding.

You will receive a comprehensive 'Client Resource Booklet' to help in planning every aspect of your ceremony, including sample wordings for each component (such as giving away of the bride & your personal vows), as well as poems, readings and special rituals.

We will also conduct a rehearsal (optional, but highly recommended), prior to your wedding. Some celebrants choose not to conduct rehearsals, or include a surcharge for this session. Personally, I find it to be one of the most valuable aspects of the entire process and not only does everyone know exactly what to do, they are so much more relaxed during the actual ceremony. This is particularly so when there is a large bridal party or there are children involved. I generally conduct the rehearsal the day before the wedding, as this is when most of the bridal party are available and everything is fresh in everyone's minds the following day. Best of all, it serves as a great lead-in to a family dinner or 'getting to know you session' for any of the bridal party who haven't met each other before!

On the day of your wedding, I will arrive at approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of your ceremony to set up and prepare. I have an excellent PA system to ensure that the beautiful words you have chosen will be enjoyed by all your guests.

I would be honoured to work with you to create a personal and meaningful ceremony, giving you as much or as little input as you desire. Please contact me to enquire about my availability for your ceremony!
