Marriage Ceremonies

My aim is to make your ceremony a fun, inclusive, creative and individualised. There are some minimal legal requirements that must be adhered to within your ceremony so that your marriage is legal, but otherwise your marriage ceremony can be ANYTHING you want it to be.

My ceremonies are designed to ensure they represent the vibe you want and best represent you as a couple. I can provide guidance and ideas on what to include in your ceremony to help create exactly what you envisage and present the ceremony in a way which creates the vibe you want for your day.

There is a lot of work that goes into planning a marriage ceremony. There is the legal side, which I am responsible for executing under the Marriage Act 1963 and guide you through; and the creative side, which I prepare based on your vision. I aim to get to know you in depth as a couple so the ceremony I prepare can best represent you and the vibe you want on the day.

My wedding ceremony fee is $750.00 (GST inclusive). This includes:

•Preparation of all legal paperwork and administrative costs

•A minimum of two face to face meetings in Darwin or skype meetings if you are out of town. These meetings can be held at your house, my house or a mutually convenient place

•Preparation of a ceremony and unlimited access to me via phone, email (or in person if I’m available) to ensure that we get your ceremony exactly how you envisage it

•Attendance at a rehearsal

•Performance of your ceremony including provision of a PA system if you require one

•A commemorative marriage certificate presented to you at your ceremony

•Lodgement of your marriage with Births, Deaths and marriages within 14 days of your ceremony
