The Diamond Package - Full Customised Wedding

Your perfect dream wedding, with all the "bells & whistles."  I pride myself on crafting ceremonies that are perfect for my couples. I spend the time getting to know you to ensure that everything for your ceremony is exactly as you hoped it would be and more. Meetings are at your home anywhere in the Northern Rivers till 9pm, Monday-Fridays and weekends after weddings. And the rehearsal is at the ceremony venue if available.

What's included:

  • Free no-obligation meeting to chat about ideas etc. I visit couples all over the Northern Rivers.

  • 100 page ceremony guidebook filled with ideas. This is amazing, it is filled with ideas that you highlight and that gives me a sense of direction for how I write your ceremony.

  • Unlimited face-face meetings.

  • An amazing beautifully written personalised ceremony filled with all your ideas.

  • Personal vows that we build together, all the help you need.

The Short and Sweet Package - Elopement or Registry Style Ceremonies

Eloping can bring freedom and flexibility to your wedding ceremony, but forgoing a large, traditional wedding to elope should not mean completely losing all meaningful and personal elements. The Emerald Package is designed to provide the couple with a more cost effective, intimate and quiet wedding with a guest list number limited to 2 – 10 people max. Remembering that it is a legal requirement that you must have 2 witnesses present.

  • Free no-obligation meeting to chat about ideas.

  • Unlimited contact.

The Legals Only Ceremony

The Opal Package is the bare minimum that is legally required to be married. It is a very short ceremony where we are saying the legally required words only and then signing the documents.  Perfect for those couples who are having or already have had a ceremony overseas for example, or a true elopement and do not want any fuss. Remembering it is still a legal requirement to have 2 witnesses present.

What's included:

  • Free no obligation meeting.

  • Verbal guidance through the legal points
