  • Don’t like being the center of attention?
  • Applying for a Marriage Visa Subclass 300?

Congrats, you’re getting married! How exciting and a bit nerve-racking too. Where to start, what to do, haven’t got a clue? You’ve come to the right place if you want a friendly and experienced celebrant. I’ll keep paperwork and wedding planning straightforward and stress-free. I love conducting small affordable weddings!

To start with all you need is love, 2 witnesses, and a celebrant! Budget Weddings are similar to a registry office style wedding. These affordable short & sweet weddings include the couple, a celebrant, and a small gathering of 5 to 30 people. The wedding will be held at an agreed location. Travel fees may apply. 

You can get married at home, at a restaurant or a local park. If a stunning Sydney Harbour location is more your thing, I know some great harbour locations that you don’t have to book for small weddings.
So, if you have decided the best option for you is a budget wedding please contact me, I’m here to help you have a great little wedding. To get married you must give one month’s written notice. That is called a ‘ Notice of Intention to Marry” or “NOIM”.
