MY FEES

I am registered by the Australian Government, Attorney General’s Department, after completing a rigorous Training Course and application process, and as such I am entitled to charge for any services that I provide.  Some people like to shop around and look for the cheapest price.  The old adage that “you get what you paid for” is never more true. 

Keep in mind that this is my business and is NOT my hobby.   Like all businesses I have overheads and expenses.   I must conduct my business keeping in mind the Code of Conduct  set out by the Attorney General of Australia and and I must strictly follow the Marriage Act 1961 and Marriage Regulations 1963. 

There is more to it then meets the eye – financially, emotionally and physically to ensure you get the ‘perfect ceremony’.  Each ceremony requires many hours of work to tailor it to your own unique and individual needs.

Even if you opted for a Registry Office wedding, in Brisbane, you would pay similar fees depending on the day, ie. midweek or weekend.

Fees Include:

  • All necessary meetings and rehearsals.

  • If you are unable to come to me, then we can arrange for me to come to you.

  • I provide many different examples of readings, the asking, vows and the ring ceremony.

  • I complete all of the paperwork and make sure that all the legalities are complied with.

  • I have my own PA System and wireless microphones which can be used for large audiences.

  • I will make sure that the process is stress fee, enjoyable and easy for you.

  • I will be available at any time to discuss your ‘big day’ or you can email me.

  • all my transport costs for any return journey 100ks from my home. We can agree on any additional travel costs at our first meeting.

  • No hidden extras.
