So what does a celebrant do, and what is included in the fee?
Please remember, Celebrants have to pay for their own office equipment, annual registration and insurance, stationery, PA equipment, wages, compulsory celebrant training and other sundry expenses.
There is so much that goes on behind the scenes in all areas, be it business wise or personal, to ensure our couples have the perfect ceremony. It isn’t just the meetings and turning up on the day – there are many hours of work involved, so it is important that you choose a celebrant based upon quality of service rather than price.
When you think of the importance of the role of the celebrant and the impact they can have upon your celebration – this calls for a high standard of work.
The celebrant will cost you more than the cake but usually less than the flowers. More than the limousine but less than the photographer … To have a civil ceremony, you need a civil marriage celebrant. Your celebrant is without doubt one of the most important investments you will make to ensure you both remember lovingly and forever, the beautiful act of being married to each other
The memory of a good …or bad celebrant will stay with you forever.
A non-refundable lodgement fee of $150 is required to hold the date and time, and confirm your ceremony. The balance of the fee is required to be paid at least one week prior to the ceremony.
The lodgement fee is non-refundable. Should you cancel your ceremony part of the balance of fees paid (up to 100%) may be refunded depending on the circumstances and the amount of time already spent on preparation.
There are no set fees for civil ceremonies. There can be a huge variation on the fees charged by some celebrants, some may be less, and some celebrants charge a lot more than I do.
A cheaper ceremony may not always be value for money, as it may reflect the amount of time and effort put in by your celebrant. I feel that my fees represent value for money, considering the amount of time I will spend on working together with you making sure your ceremony is unique and designed specifically for you.
I plan each ceremony individually, developing it to your needs. You are most welcome to write your own (with my assistance naturally), and I can help you select readings and symbolic rituals to personalise it.
As with everything I do, I will ensure that the ceremony is personal, of high quality, and delivered with reverence and style.
The fee will depend on where your wedding will be and the travel involved. There is no difference between a “small wedding with hardly anything in it” to a full blown ceremony! My fee for a wedding is usually $600.
