Frequently Asked Questions

A collection of some of the more frequently asked questions. I conduct Wedding Ceremonies, Naming, renewal and the occasional funeral. Please feel free to give me a call with any questions or queries you may have on 0407 370 287 or contact me here 

How much do you charge?

It all depends on where and when you marry! Generally, between $790 and $900 but there may be some additional travel fees for long travel distances for this Yarra Valley celebrant. Discounts available for midweek, morning, and lunchtime weddings.

Naming Ceremonies approximately $400.

How do we book you and how far in advance?
Make an appointment to meet me in my home in Mt Evelyn, (or via Skype where distance proves a problem), I take you through my inspiration package, see if we have a meeting of the minds and you feel the vibe! If so, we lock in the date, you pay a $200 booking fee and start planning. NB: Book your celebrant once you’ve locked in your date!
Can we include what we want?
Absolutely! Apart from you hearing the Monitum from the Marriage Act, you stating the legal vows and signing at the end, the ceremony is yours for the taking. Use my inspiration pack to guide you.
How long will the ceremony be?
It varies of course, depending on what you choose to include in your ceremony. Most ceremonies I conduct from ‘walk in’ to ‘walk out’ are usually between 15 and 25 minutes.
How do I change my name?
Once you have the official certificate from www.bdm.vic.gov.au (about $32 and 8 weeks wait) you then need to visit and ring places to say that you now want to be known as Mrs Happy! (make sure you have your marriage certificate and ID with you!) Change your license first!
What ceremonies do you conduct?
Pretty much anything!  Weddings, commitment ceremonies, vow renewals, naming days and the occasional funeral.
