Val Haydon

Winner 5 Star Excellence Award

Don't fear your ceremony. Let me help you actually enjoy it:)
 I have experience with all kinds of weddings, namegivings, commitments and renewals, whether large or small.  I can also conduct Registry Style weddings in my office in the Hunter Valley, overlooking the Brokenback Mountains and the Valley...ideal for smaller weddings and elopements. 
If you need any assistance with supporting documentation for Fiancé Immigration Visa Applications I am expedience in that area, although I am not an immigration agency or official

I make your day FANTASTIC for you, keep you calm and make sure everyone remembers your Wedding Day for all the RIGHT reasons....  
My style is upbeat, friendly and fun. I go the extra mile and get great feedback as my clients know that I CARE about them.

My background is in hospitality, events, PR and media and goes back over 20 years. I have a keen eye for detail, which is why I excel with Weddings and Special Occasions. I also work closely with your photographer to ensure that you get some fantastic photo opportunities during your Ceremony and capture all those special moments.

My job is to make you look good, to keep you calm and make your day fantastic. It's not about me.. it's all about you.

I have a great deal of experience in public speaking, so will give you public speaking coaching as part of my package, which will help with your Ceremony and with Reception Speeches. 

I've got some great Ceremonies to choose from and I can include Rituals, Buddhist/Spiritual Words and all kinds of individual inclusions to make your wedding just a bit different.

Although Marriage is a serious and solemn commitment, there is no reason why it can't also be fun, beautiful, glamorous, spiritual or romantic, or a combination of all. With words written by you, with as much guidance from me as you need, but delivered by me to reflect the love in your heart.

My services are designed to include all your guests and even your pets if required... so that nobody is left out :). I perform outdoor and indoor ceremonies and am flexible and innovative. I have my own portable PA System and Red Bridal Carpet for the Bridal Party to Stand on to provide a focal point and prevent high heel sinking into the grass or beach.

My fees include Ceremony writing (I have sample Ceremonies for you to choose from) all paperwork and legals, preparation, certification and local rehearsals.. leaving you stress free to plan and enjoy your day.

I keep my price range affordable, but as a general rule your Celebrant will cost you more than the cake, but usually less than the flowers. More than the limousine, but less than the photographer... but the memory of a good ..or bad Celebrant will stay with you forever...

I pride myself on not just being good, but one of the best... so if you are interested in booking my services please feel free to send me an enquiry so that we can have a chat. 

Or if you just want general information about getting married the "Getting Married" Section on NSW Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages is very useful.

I look forward to hearing from you.
