The Process

Our process is relaxed, fun! Chatting over Skype or at one of Melbourne's best bars or cafe's creates an ideal setting for us to get to know each other and plan a superb wedding ceremony. My time with you is unlimited so that you feel confident and happy with every aspect of your ceremony.

Meeting One - In person or Skype

We’ll have an initial ‘meet & greet’ where you scope me out and decide if I am the right fit for your wedding day. This can easily be via a video chat or a coffee or cheeky wine in person. We will go over the paperwork including the NOIM form, my package inclusions and planning process. If you decide you want to book me you’ll receive my Terms & Conditions, plus an invoice for the booking fee. Payment of the booking fee locks in your wedding date and confirms your agreement with my T&Cs, and we then go full steam ahead in creating a beautiful ceremony!

 

Meeting Two

We’ll meet again to sign the NOIM form. During this time I will sight your identification docs - current passports are the simplest option, though you can bring an original birth certificate along with photo ID instead. As well as completing the paperwork we'll have a relaxed chat about how you want your ceremony to roll. After the meeting I'll spend the time needed to craft a personalised ceremony that is loved and remembered by you and your guests.

 

Rehearsal 

This is entirely optional - most of my couples are pretty comfortable not having one but the option is there. I love rehearsals and am always thrilled to hang out with the about-to-wed couple one last time before their big day. The rehearsal is also when we sign the DONLIM form - this is explained to you during an earlier meeting. If you're not having a rehearsal then we just sign the DONLIM on the wedding day. 

 

The Big Day!!

I will be there early to set up the paperwork & my wireless PA, and will be a welcoming happy presence as your guests arrive. I will present your ceremony with laughter, energy and a big heart full of love for you both. It's an amazing privilege, something I adore doing and I put a lot of personality and feeling into this. After your ceremony, I'll hang back until it feels like the appropriate time to pack up my belongings, say my final congrats and goodbyes to you, and then I am quietly gone, leaving you to party on with your family and friends.
