Question Answer

What makes your ceremonies different to other Celebrants?

Related to General

My ceremonies are best described as short, punchy, upbeat, and light-hearted whilst being highly professional. I tend to work with couples who are looking for something more relaxing, fun, yet polished and memorable. I do not stand between the couple (during the ceremony), in fact I stand well-clear of the central focal point (photographers love this). I also perform the entire ceremony completely from memory, without notes (although I do carry an iPad for effect only)..

What makes a gay same sex marriage different to a heterosexual marriage in Australia?

Related to Legalities

Firstly, gay same sex marriages are generally referred to as a committment ceremonies, and secondly there is no legal paperwork. The wording during a gay union must be different to a legal civil union, whilst there is also no government marriage certificate issued. There is also no filing with Births Deaths and Marriages after the ceremony, because the Australian government does not currently recognised gay same sex marriages as legal.

Should I meet a number of Celebrants before making my decision about which one I should use?

Related to Experience

Many websites and magazines will advise you to meet several suppliers in each category (photographers, celebrants, florists etc), before making your final decision. The issue with this is that if you find a Celebrant (or supplier) you like, the celebrant (you liked) may be booked by the time you finally meet all the others. My best advice is that if you find a wedding supplier you like, book them immediately. Only if there is doubt, would you move to the next one in the queue.
