What My Services Include

I do hope your enjoying this stage of your planning,
my schedule of inclusions are as follows:

Wedding Ceremony


Following is what I as your celebrant can offer for the wedding day of your dreams. We will discuss the kind of ceremony you are looking to achieve. I will provide you with a folder of sample readings, vows and declarations to take home and peruse at your leisure, with these samples you can combine or modify these as you wish or we can sit down together and write the ceremony. The idea is to make your wedding day as meaningful to your and your guests.


An initial deposit of $100.00 is due and payable at the booking of your ceremony, this charge is to secure your day and time, however in the event of cancellation of the ceremony, this fee is non-refundable. The balance of the account is payable no later than 14 days before your wedding.
