I am a popular and professionally trained celebrant, having graduated from The Academy of Celebrancy (Aust.) with a Certificate IV in Celebrancy. I am experienced and able to create original and unique ceremonies for all occasions.
I conduct ceremonies at and nearby Launceston. In particular I love to travel to historic homes, beach locations, the east coast and to the many wilderness places in Tasmania. I also enjoy officiating at migrant weddings, and working with these clients to include their cultural rituals and values. I have an office where you may quickly register your marriage.
I am able to assist clients visiting Tasmania from the Mainland of Australia combine a wedding and a holiday when travelling to this beautiful State.
I regard it an honour to be chosen as the celebrant for a wedding, commitment, baby-naming ceremony, or for another of life's celebrations. Therefore I shall work with you in a professional manner to provide a high quality of service - to make a difference. With a reasonable service fee you'll obtain a memorable ceremony to remember for a lifetime.
WEDDINGS: If you intend to be married then I will guide you through each step in a professional and personable manner. I shall craft a ceremony especially for you. My goal is to provide a personalised service and at an affordable price. With my flexibility you'll have the ceremony that you want: .... your day .... your way .... I know you'll love the difference!
With a wedding ceremony, our business offers 1 of 3 packages to a couple:
1. A short "just us" elopement ceremony held at our office (2 witnesses only): $300
2. A simple, quick n'easy ceremony at your chosen venue (max. 25 people): $350
3. A deluxe wedding (incl. rehearsal, ritual & cultural elements) at your venue: $400
These fees are a guide for weddings at Launceston. If travel occurs an extra fee often applies. A minor variation to these prices sometimes may occur, based on individual need and circumstance.
Whether it is for a wedding or another ceremony, I possess an extensive selection of ceremony scripts, vows, prayers, phrases, poems and music that I may loan to you when planning your ceremony.
In order for me to provide a high quality of service to you, I ask you to provide at least 4 weeks notice before the event. Otherwise, regrettably, I will be unable accept your booking.
When you are ready to discuss planning a ceremony, please contact me to secure a booking for your ceremony. Simply enter your contact details on the "Contact this celebrant" form, shown below, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.
