Traditional(ish) ceremony packages
Two simple packages | One amazing wedding
My entire career as a celebrant has been a conflict between two points of view when it comes to price:
Providing the best possible level of service I can to provide to my clients,
Providing a service that is competitive with other celebrants fees and couple’s expectations of what a celebrant costs.
I’ve taken almost every approach I can think of to find a middle ground, but none of them have worked.
So I now simply offer two packages, one for each point of view: A tailored package and a signature package.
I honestly believe that my tailored ceremony package is one of the best value-for-money celebrant packages available, however, if you’re willing to invest a little more in your celebrant;
it’s my signature package that is winning me awards and referrals from past clients, their guests, other vendors & venues.
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.
An amazing ceremony package based on a winning formula that you can tailor in several important ways that provides exceptional value for money for couples that are happy for me to do what I do best.
A killer ceremony package
This package is designed for couples that just want a relaxed, engaging ceremony, delivered by one of Brisbane’s best celebrants and want to be relatively hands-off on the planning process.
My Tailored 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 takes a different approach to wedding ceremonies that is fresh and unique.
A killer wedding ceremony that is tailored to you and your preferences in several important ways that you control.
Advice on writing and editing your personalised vows so they’re the highlight of the ceremony.
My best-in-class Bose S1 Pro PA System with wireless mic & bluetooth connectivity.
Music (my playlist or yours) before the ceremony and I will press play for the key songs during the ceremony.
A local briefing coffee/drink with your VIPs before the wedding to settle any nerves and give instructions.
Unlimited online support (phone, skype or DM) in the lead up to and after the wedding, and
All of the obvious things you’d expect from a celebrant (i.e. paperwork, legals, solemnisation & registration).
However, there are some restrictions, specifically that the tailored package is only available in the Brisbane Metro Area and the ceremony must start and finish between either; 12 pm - 2 pm, 2 pm - 4 pm or 4 pm - 6 pm.
Indicative fee range
The typical fee for a tailored package is between $725 - $975 (excluding possible travel charges).
My full service package for couples that want a unique wedding ceremony, unbeatable support in the lead up to the wedding and all the little touches that make a wedding ceremony truly exceptional.
The complete package
This package is designed for couples that consider the ceremony and their relationship with the celebrant a priority for their wedding or want a premium level of service, all the little touches on the day and priority access for meetings and support.
My Signature Package includes everything from the tailored package plus:
The option to have a truly “blank page” bespoke wedding ceremony (excluding the mandatory wording).
Exclusivity on the day of the wedding (i.e. I won’t take meetings or other bookings that day).
Travel within SEQ (excluding third party fares) for the ceremony.
Priority booking for meetings (you get the first pick of available appointments).
Access to coffee/drink catch ups when I’m in town & invitations when I'm asked to bring clients to exclusive events.
The use of my PA system for up to 45 minutes after the wedding ceremony.
I’ll bring my custom designed, overkill, ultimate Ceremony PA system at no extra charge (if we need my bigger PA).
Annual and monthly caps on the number of Signature Packages to ensure I’m available and present for each couple that book this service.
I will complete and lodge the paperwork with the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages within 48 hours, and
A celebrant that is going to get to know you, invest in your wedding, care about you and the people in your life so that I can deliver the complete wedding experience for you.
Indicative fee range
The typical fee for a signature package is between $1,195 - $1,550.
For both packages I charge a booking fee of $400 which is credited towards the total fee.
The booking fee covers the cost of being in business and taking on each client which I have incurred up to this point. This is why it is the same for both packages, due up-front and is non-refundable.
