Fees & Information
“My aim is ensure the process is simple and uncomplicated”Kathryn Campbell
A venue for your ceremony will assist me to determine if I am available to officiate at your wedding, this is not necessary but can influence availability.
Confirm your booking following an obligation free meeting / phone conversation or Facebook chat.
A deposit of the non-refundable amount of $250.00 is required to secure your date and time.
Fee for Standard Service which includes a minimum travel allowance to local areas is from $500.00.
Any additional fees to cover the cost of travelling outside the local area will be discussed and confirmed at the booking confirmation.
Please inquire about the price of a basic ceremony which will meet the minimum legal requirements of the Marriage Act conducted at my property at Sunnyside.
The Notice of Intended Marriage can be completed electronically, then signed at our first face to face meeting. Noting that signing of the NOIM is required 1 month prior to the wedding and that the document remains current for 18 months.
At this meeting you will need to provide:
- Proof of your date and place of birth, eg. your original birth certificate or passport
- Photo identification will also need to be sighted
- In the case of a previous marriage original death certificates or evidence of divorce needs be to be sighted
I will provide all of the legal documentation as well as comprehensive resources within my Wedding Pack including:
- Words to “set the scene”
- Words to make your vows truly personalised
- Options for giving away/acknowledging parents
- Promises to make
- A selection of wedding vows/ring exchanges
- A selection of readings
Our face to face meeting/s will provide an opportunity for you to share some insights into your journey to marriage. Humour is great! It keeps people engaged and listening. I actively encourage all clients to have input into the ceremony, however it is not essential to write your vows and there is no need to memorise them. I will support you through the whole process, vows will be practiced, you will be confident with the ring exchange ….and I guess you don’t have to practice the kiss!
As a Registered Civil Celebrant licenced under the Attorney-General’s Office it is my responsibility to ensure all marriages meet the legal requirements under “The Marriage Act 1961”. After many years in the industry, I have learnt that regular communication is the key to ensuring all expectations are met. My commitment is to provide you with resources and advice, to listen and work with you to create the perfect reflection of your relationship in a meaningful and heartfelt ceremony. Ideally the ceremony should be finalised well in advance of the wedding day.
Leading up to your wedding day a declaration, confirming that you are both ‘free to marry’ must be signed. This is the ideal time to have the rehearsal. Please note that additional fees will apply if the rehearsal is not conducted at my home.
Payment is full must made not later than 2 weeks prior to the ceremony. Please note your responsibilities will be outlined in the Contract of Services.
My service includes:
- The provision of a public address system and wireless microphone if requested as well as a second microphone for a guest to contribute a reading.
- Arriving at the ceremony 30 minutes prior to the ceremony.
- A paper based keepsake copy of the ceremony will be presented to couples upon request at no additional cost.
I have developed a close working relationship with many vendors in the industry and take great pride in being a part of the wedding community across the North West Coast. I will liaise with venue operators, photographers and videographers on the day of the ceremony as required.
Documentation will be sent to the Registry of Birth Deaths and Marriages in Hobart following the ceremony. It is your responsibility to make an application to gain an official copy of your Marriage Certificate. Most brides use this document to start the process of changing their name.
