Parties, Small Weddings & Elopements

A wedding requires 127 words, not 127 guests


looking to do something different?

I’m available for a range of wedding types outside of a traditional wedding.

My packages range from short, unscripted ceremonies that we can do at a celebratory dinner or engagement party to small weddings and elopements as part of a package or as a stand-alone celebrant.

Please note that these packages are generally not available on Saturday Afternoons between 1 pm & 5 pm.


A quick note on pricing

I no longer charge a fixed price for my packages as there are a range of factors that are unique to each enquiry that I receive and I want to be able to tailor my pricing based on these factors.
While I give indicative pricing below, this is based on the average wedding. The quote I give you may be higher or lower than the indicative range.

Parties & Unscripted Ceremonies

Do you want to be married in a short, unscripted ceremony at your engagement, birthday or anniversary party / dinner?

Throw a party, get married, keep partying

This package is designed for couples that want to have a celebration & get married with the minimum fuss. Perhaps you want to surprise your guests at your engagement or birthday party, or you are thinking about getting married at the registry office then go out for dinner at your favourite restaurant - but you’d love it if the registry office came to the restaurant.

My Party Weddings Package includes:

  • The services of one of ‘The Wedding Diaries’ best 25 celebrants in Brisbane & an Easy Weddings 5 star rated suppler.

  • A charismatic and relaxed celebrant that will help you get married your way.

  • All of the obvious things you’d expect from a celebrant (i.e. paperwork, legals, solemnisation & registration), and

  • A short, unscripted ceremony that can include the “I Do” and Personalised Vows.

This package isn’t a full wedding ceremony, rather, it’s a short unscripted ceremony with the options to incorporate a few traditional elements. Please view my traditional(ish) packages if you’re looking for a full ceremony.

Indicative fee range

The typical fee for a Party Wedding is between $500 - $700 (excluding travel).

Small, Bespoke mid-week weddings from a group of a-grade vendors

I work with with a group of amazing and experienced vendors to create a unique and meaningful wedding experience for a crazy low price. What’s the catch? It has to be mid-week, there’s a maximum of 15 guests and we’re not going to tell you who your A-Team is until after you’ve booked (which means that it might not be me that’s your celebrant).

Add me to your own a-team of vendors

I’m more than happy to provide any of my ceremony types in an elopement or small wedding format if you would like to add me to your own A-Team of vendors, simply select the type of ceremony you’re interested in using my enquiry form and mention that it’s a small wedding or elopement in the message.

I don’t offer all-inclusive packages, but I there are people I love working with:

I’m not a wedding planner or co-ordinator, but if you want someone to take much of the leg work out of finding your A-Team of vendors; simply tell me what location and date you’re planning your wedding and what vendors you’d like me to provide recommendations for. I’ll reach out to my friends that I love working with to see if they’re available and provide a ready-made shortlist of available vendors for your A-Team.
