Weddings

Your Wedding Day

Love is in the air at Lorne, a place of natural beauty that heightens your senses, but I am also available for ceremonies in Paris.

Why not get married on the beach? Let us find the perfect wedding location for your unique ceremony, or you tell me where and I will make it happen.

Your ceremony will be made personal by reflecting your wishes and feelings for each other, set in a location of your choice.

Your ceremony must reflect your lived experiences and be structured around what you want to say to each other.

Love shapes your perfect wedding

Saying your special words to your special partner the way you want.

Attending to your wishes your guests will not miss the intimacy and beauty that you have created. An unforgettable experience awaits you here in Lorne. Or wherever the winds of Love takes you.

 

The Process

After your initial contact with me we will arrange our first face-to-face meeting where we will discuss your ceremony requirements, this meeting is free of charge.

At this meeting I will explore with you and your partner your ideas of how to create your personal story.

  • Venue/location/date
  • Family involvement
  • Vows
  • Music
  • Readings/poetry
  • Colours
  • Flowers
  • Photography/videos

 

In your relationship you have found love. I want to help you celebrate that love in a unique way. Your ceremony can be stylish, relaxed, fun and inclusive, but if you would rather, traditional. I believe my personal qualities and beliefs reflect a changing world that wants to embrace diversity through love.

Once you make your decision and if I am your celebrant of choice the following occurs:

  • You pay a non-refundable deposit which is fifty percent of the agreed fee.
  • We organize a second face-to-face meeting.

At our second meeting we will refine the previously discussed elements of your ceremony. We will explore sample services and content options. At this meeting we will refine your personal story. I will always be available to assist you both to meet any changes or additions that you wish.

I will discuss with you the legal requirements and identification that is required.

 

Rehearsal

A rehearsal should be held about a week before the ceremony, ideally this should be arranged at the venue or site, with the entire ceremony party. I will provide a PA system and a registry table and chairs.

 

Ceremony

I will be at the venue (Paris) at least one hour prior to the start of the ceremony to ensure that all is in order, and to address any last minute issues. At the end of the service I will present to you a folder containing a certificate that honours your union.

 

Wedding Certificate

I will arrange for all legal documentation to be forwarded to Births Deaths and Marriages within the required 14 day period.
