There are sooo many things to think about – the date, the venue, the flowers, what you are going to wear! I get it. Finding a celebrant is probably one of the last things on your mind. But if you listen to just ONE thing, it would be to search for and select your Celebrant ASAP. We get booked out sometimes 12 months in advance so to make sure that you get the Celebrant you want on the date that you want, contact me NOW.
Upon making initial contact, I will suggest a face to face meeting. At our initial meeting, which is obligation free, we will discuss your ceremony and make sure that we both “fit” each other. If we “fit”, I will also give you a special pack of goodies to help you in planning your special day. Once my booking fee has been paid and you have signed my Service Agreement I’m all yours and your date is secured! I don’t book multiple weddings on the same day to ensure that I give my 100% attention to you.
Depending on time there may be another meeting to discuss the content of your ceremony and to complete the Notice of Intention to Marry (NOIM). The NOIM MUST be completed and returned to me at least 1 month prior to your ceremony date – this is SUPER important – if I don’t get your completed legal paperwork then I can’t perform the ceremony.
We may be able to do some of the ceremony panning via email and phone, but we MUST meet your completed paperwork at least 1 month prior to the ceremony date.
I also highly recommend scheduling a rehearsal around 2 weeks prior to your ceremony. This will allow me to complete Declaration of No Legal Impediment form that I have to complete as well as give us all the opportunity to run through the ceremony and make sure it is perfect.
I’m here for you and your partner on YOUR SPECIAL DAY!
