The most important part of your day, it’s where you get to tell everyone why they are here, we all know what a wedding ceremony is, but this is where you can choose to make your ceremony unique and what you want. I love the uniqueness of each and every ceremony, from the brief non tradional wedding to the add every element into the ceremony wedding. It is your choice.
I can assist with sample ceremonies, along with sample readings and poems, choice of music or no choice of music.

What is included in the Wedding Package.
All paperwork and legal requirements, PA system, Signing Table and 2 chairs. Travel to and from the venue up to 50km distance. Arrival 45minutes prior to ceremony, for set up and to calm the groom’s nerves. The ceremony is totally in you control, being that you can have whatever elements you choose and length of ceremony you choose. I have lots of ceremonies, wordings, poems, readings, etc that you can choose from, mix n match, or write your own vow’s. My PA system takes CD’s & iPod etc, and you can have any music which you like, if I don’t have it, I can get it for you to use on the day, I also have music, whilst you guests are being seated, to add some ambience. On the day, you sign a Wedding Certificate, which is a legal Document but is not the document to use to change you name, bank etc. I also arrange for this to be submitted with your legal documents. Also included is the opportunity to have a rehearsal prior to the ceremony.
Total Package $750.00
Payment : I know weddings are expensive, and offer you the opportunity to use Lay-by facilities. I give you my banking details and after an initial $100 non refundable deposit to secure the date, you can pay $50 at a time or whatever you would like, as long as the total is paid 31 days prior to the ceremony.
Master of Ceremony (Wedding Package)
When I MC a wedding, I have a change of attire, so that guests realise I am there as a “Go to Person” (generally Red Jacket) as you would see a Concierge. I start my duties as the ceremony ends, and notify guest of the venue location, and time they should arrive if this is in a different location. I meet with you 2 weeks prior to go through a run sheet of the format of the reception, which again is up to you, and ask for a list of VIP guests, interstate guests, Great Uncle BOB etc, or Uncle Ted whom has too many drinks and is not allowed to have the microphone. Depending on your reception I speak with the kitchen and confirm timing of meals etc. My PA system again is available for use at the reception.
Greet guests on arrival and let them know, where to go. I also check with guests if things are going alright, and if anyone needs anything. The evening is your evening and the more I can do at the reception, the more I like it. But again this is again totally up to you. I have in the past been security as well, if guests are not allowed outside with alcohol, then I am the Fun Police and happy to be not liked.
