Celebrant Fee

According to ASIC’s MoneySmart Financial Guide, an Australian wedding can cost approximately $36,000.  Taking this into account the Marriage Celebrant fee is one of the least expensive of all your wedding costs and yet one of the most important parts of your wedding day.

As a guideline, the NSW Birth Deaths & Marriages Registry charges $507 for a basic registry wedding.

My fee is dependent on the couple’s requirements and is a personalised and professional service.  As a guideline my fee starts from $600 and includes the following services:

  • Unlimited face to face meetings at either my home office, your home or a suitable venue
  • Wedding Rehearsal
  • Unlimited contact by email and phone to discuss the marriage ceremony
  • Customised ceremony design to suit your needs
  • Wedding Kit (electronic copy) containing sample scripts, vows, rituals, poems, music and information on the legalities as required by the Marriage Act
  • Sight all original documents including original birth certificates, divorce papers, death certificates, foreign passports

  • Parking costs & travel to/from wedding venue within a 50km radius from my home office*

Your wedding ceremony cost consists of a $250 non-refundable booking fee.  Payment options are available.
