FAQS

Why do we need a Wedding Celebrant?

The celebrant is there to make your marriage legal. Our involvement in the ceremony can be limited to just the legal proceedings, but we are also quite good at telling stories and guiding the ceremony.

Do you have a PA system we can use?

Yes, I do.
If you are using the venue system for your music, you will want to provide a song choice for while guests are arriving, while you walk down the aisle, while we sign the certificates, and as you both walk down the aisle after the ceremony.
If you use my PA system, you will need those songs as well as someone to manage the playlist and timings.

Who stands where during the ceremony?

I will guide you both throughout so you know where to stand, what to do and when to do it.

Do I need to be given away in my marriage ceremony?

Not at all, that is a personal choice. There are many other options aside from being given away we can discuss.

Is it essential to have personalised vows in our ceremony?

It isn’t essential, but I highly recommend it. I can assist with this process and provide examples and feedback if you need.

What is the legal wording required during our Wedding Ceremony?

It’s called the Monitum, and goes like this:
As a civil celebrant, I am duly authorised by law to solemnise marriages according to law.
Before you are joined in marriage in my presence and in the presence f these witnesses, I am to remind you of the solemn and binding nature of the relationship into which you are now about to enter. Marriage, according to law in Australia, is the union of two people to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life.

Can you recommend any other wedding suppliers?

Absolutely! There are so many excellent people in this industry, it can be hard to know where to start. Let me know what you are looking for when we chat.
