Every wedding should be unique and personal.
No-one wants a boring, irrelevant ceremony so I don't do them. Your ceremony, the moment in your life when you arrive as two, but leave as one, should be better than just 'OK'. Together, we can make it personal, meaningful and memorable (for the RIGHT reasons!)
Based on feedback from hundreds of delighted couples, I believe the following offers exceptional value:
Firstly what you won't get!
That horrible, awkward feeling you had at that wedding that time (Cringe!!)
Guests who have no idea what's happening (Awkward!)
Stress... lots and lots of unnecessary stress!!
A celebrant who is still 'practising', nervous or just there to read a script.
A celebrant that tries too hard to be funny (oh dear, look away!!) Humour is great; telling 'knock knock' jokes or bringing up things about your own relationship... not so much!!
What you will get, included in my fee
Our initial (obligation-free) meeting
Preparation/creation of your unique, personalised ceremony
A copy of the final draft of your unique ceremony

Master-Of-Ceremonies by Jake
It's pretty amazing to stay on and serve as the M.C. for the reception. In that role I help oversee and co-ordinate the flow of your reception & get so much more interaction with you and your loved ones. After serving as an MC I always feel so fulfilled knowing that we've shared an exceptional ceremony and then I've helped everybody celebrate your marriage well into the night. It is such a rewarding feeling! I find that an experienced MC takes so much pressure off the bride and groom and their guests.
Cost varies from $700-$1100 (depending on location and timing). Let me know if you’re interested and we’ll give you a quote!
When you're ready to go ahead and we've agreed to work on your wedding together, payment of a $300 deposit will be required to confirm your booking. Once received I begin declining other bookings that would clash with yours and also commence work on both your ceremony and your wedding documents.
If you'd like to know more about my pricing feel free to read this little article on celebrant costs.
If I'm currently available for your wedding, let me know if you've got any questions or if you'd like to meet (or call/FaceTime) and I'll lead you through the process from there.
If I haven't yet confirmed that I'm available please complete this short enquiry form which will give me everything I need to confirm my availability and get the ball rolling for you!
