Your first step to an amazing wedding starts here
When we meet up to plan your ceremony, there are a number of options and ceremony styles that I can offer to help you build the perfect ceremony specifically for you, but to make it a bit easier I have broken it down into 4 standard options, all of which can be built upon and personalised to suit your requirements.
Each option has a different fee structure, so you can plan your marriage based on the ceremony you like or on your budget.
‘Kiss & Run’ or Registry ceremony
This version is for the people who want a ‘Registry Style’ ceremony with the minimum of wording.
Priced from $450.00 this ceremony includes a 'legal' script with a bit of personalised if requested and includes the signing. I will also look after the preparation of your NOIM and lodgement of your legal documents etc.
Ideal also for people planning to marry overseas and would like a legal Australian marriage before or after, or for couples who are looking for a legal ceremony with their two (2) witnesses.
This ceremony is carried out in my home office any day of the week and any time between 6am - 10pm.
The ‘Elopement’ ceremony
A special low key, get-a-way ceremony
This is a brief personalised ceremony designed for the couple who wants to share their 'elopement' with a few close friends or family (from 2 - 8 guests) and is like a more personalised 'Registry' ceremony
Not everyone wants to have a big wedding ceremony and the 'Elopement' option gives you the opportunity to say your 'I do's' in a special place of your choice surrounded by your special friends.
These ceremonies are becoming very popular with overseas couples combining a marriage ceremony and a holiday in Australia.
The ceremony includes the preparation of the NOIM , the signing and lodgement of your legal documents.
Priced at $520.00, the affordable 'Elopement' ceremony can be held at any location within the Perth metro area* and at any time between 6am - 10pm.
A laid back, stylish ceremony
This version is for the people who want a more relaxed ceremony. Recommended for wedding with up to 20 guests and includes a custom written ‘personal ceremony’
Ideal also for people who have been married overseas and would like a legal Australian marriage with their friends & relatives who couldn’t attend or for couples who just want a sweet little, laid back ceremony.
Also great for someone looking for a nice simple ceremony in a park, beach or a favourite place of their choice* between 6am - 10pm
The Elopement ceremony costs from $620.00 and usually runs for around 10mins and includes the preparation of the NOIM and all legal documents, signing and lodgement of documents on your behalf.
