After we have confirmed availability, I like to catch up with my couples face to face (or skype) for a meet and greet, this is a great way to break the ice and for you to see if I’m the right person to officiate your wedding ceremony, you may have some questions about the whole process, and this is also a chance for me to gauge your style, wants ceremony inclusions & expectations.
Take your time to decide on a celebrant, If I have another query for the date within a month of us meeting up, I’ll let you know. If you decide to progress, I’ll send you out a deposit invoice to lock in the date, we’ll then need to catch up again to sign paperwork. The Paperwork is super easy and I’ll do most of it for you but we will need to ID you (Driver’s License and Passport will do it).
Next stage is for me to start a ceremony draft, at this point I should have a good idea about the style length, content etc that you are looking for. I will generally send a draft ceremony out to you about 1-2 months after we meet, there will also be some questions on there for your consideration, of course you can contribute as much or as little as you like. This process is designed to help personalize your ceremony as much as possible. This is a good time to start thinking about your vows, music, and readings (if you want included). I will assist as much as you need and have many examples to share. From here I will complete a Final Ceremony for your approval or perhaps you would like to hear it for the first time on the day.
If you would like a rehearsal this can be arranged, and is best done within the week before the wedding. If there is no rehearsal needed, I will call the night before just to run through the basics of the ceremony and allow you to ask any last-minute questions. At this stage we should all be feeling comfortable, ready and excited! I will send out the Balance Invoice one month out to be paid 2x days prior to the day.
I aim to get to the Wedding 45mins prior to the ceremony start time, allowing me time to set-up, touch base with other service providers and to go over the proceedings with those who are a part of the ceremon. Please rest assured, I am incredibly organized and will ensure these steps happen at the right times so there is no stress in the lead up to your wedding day.
