 I have been an Authorised Marriage Celebrant since 2004 and have officiated at 100s of ceremonies. Over that time I have seen what is, and importantly, what isn’t critical to a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. By eliminating the things that aren’t critical, I am able to reduce the effort, fuss and expense you have to go through. Simple things such as;

  • on-line bookings
  • streamlining the lodgement of the Notice of Intended Marriage
  • fixed locations for your ceremony
  • on-line registration of your marriage with Birth, Deaths and Marriages NSW
