FAQs

I am based in Windsor, Victoria, however I am happy to travel all over Australia in the name of love! I have previously conducted weddings in several Australian states and have even flown to Germany to celebrate a wedding. I am also able to conduct weddings in many states of the USA. Put it this way - if it's on this planet, there is no such thing as too far.

Generally speaking, the earlier, the better. While I don't book weddings more than 12 months in advance, dates in peak season (September-May) tend to book out between 10 - 12 months prior. As I only book a limited amount of weddings per year, please contact me as soon as you have set a date to avoid disappointment.

Not in the least! With Skype, FaceTime, email and other technologies we can still chat face to face and plan your ceremony long before we meet in person.

To meet the requirements for marriage under Australian law, you must lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) with your chosen celebrant no later than one month before your wedding. To complete the NOIM, I will need to sight:

  • your original birth certificates or passports.
  • if one or both of you has been married before, you will need to provide original documentation proving how your previous marriage ended (divorce or death certificate).

Ja - Deutsch! I speak German and would be very happy to conduct part or all of your ceremony in German to honour your heritage and include your guests. I also know a smattering of Indonesian and Swedish. I am happy to learn phrases in other languages if you like.

I provide a boutique service creating personalised, engaging ceremonies. I like to really get to know the couples I work with and it's for that reason I take a limited amount of bookings each year. Generally speaking, I book only one wedding per day. Occasionally exceptions will occur when weddings are at opposite ends of the day or geographically very close to one another.
