I am a full time professional, fully insured celebrant who with a back ground in creative writing, acting and public speaking can not only create the ceremony of your dreams but also deliver it with poise, charm and humour. The following packages will ensure whatever your budget, whatever your circumstances there is something here to suit.
It is important that you choose your celebrant wisely. They must suit you both, someone you feel comfortable with and feel confident that they can deliver the ceremony that you dream of. The role of a celebrant should not be just ticking boxes and getting the job done. It is more than doing what is required under the Celebrant's Code of Conduct. It is personal, there are emotions involved and personal preferences. Weddings don't always go according to plan and a good celebrant must be able to think on their feet and have a high care factor. I endeavour to do all that and more. I average 25 hours per couple (depending on the complexity of the ceremony). The saying, "You get what you pay for" is very true.
