What you need to do

How to get started;
The first thing to do is contact me. My mobile number is 0427 592213
Please leave a detailed message and I will call you back asap.
Or you can use the contact form on this website.
We can discuss your needs and arrange an obligation free meeting.

The next step is the completion of the Notice of Intended Marriage form (NOIM).


I will provide the NOIM and help you fill it out at our first meeting or the NOIM form can be downloaded from and filled out prior to our meeting. It is a legal requirement that the NOIM be lodged with your Celebrant no less than one calendar month before the Wedding date.

The information on this form will explain what legal documents you will need to have with you,i.e. birth certificates, passports, photo ID etc.

Our first meeting;
This meeting will be obligation free and is basically to meet each other, have an informal chat, and discuss your ideas and for me to let you know what I can offer.

If you decide you would like me to be your Celebrant I will require a booking deposit and we can get started.


I will work with you and make sure you have all the help and guidance you require to plan your Ceremony.
I can supply you with ideas, sample ceremonies and readings, and together we can draft a ceremony that will capture the ideal words that symbolise your love for each other.  Your ceremony can be as simple or as grand as you desire.
The choice is yours and the sky is the limit. Have fun with the planning to make the most of your special day, let it reflect who you are as a couple and create an everlasting and precious memory.
