Your wedding, your day, and your opportunity to show friends and family who you are as a couple.
Where do we start?
Before we set anything in stone, I like to get to know you a little. Ideally we can meet in person but if you can't, Skype and Facetime are a great way to come face to face an ensure that the right vibes are there.
Other helpful information to have for me at the initial meeting are things like:
- Wedding date.
- Ceremony location.
- Wedding size.
If after that initial meeting you are happy to move forward, that's when the fun begins!
The creative process.
Creating a unique and amazing ceremony is the goal, and in order to achieve that I will call on you to provide the quirkier details of who you are as individuals, as a couple, and how you interact with your friends and family.
Whether it be your mutual love for wombats, or your adorable selection of pet names - every couple has something unique and special that makes life a joy when your together.
There aren't any rules to your ceremony, so don't be shy. Let me know what appeals and what doesn't, what you love, and what you think just isn't right for you. In the end you will have a ceremony just right to share with each other and your loved ones.
Let me know what you love, what you share, and those you hold dear; tell me your story so that I can mold it into something special that culminates in the joining of two lives in the awesomeness of marriage.
I encourage all couple to write their own vows. I have plenty of examples and inspiration to get you going and it's a great way of making your ceremony that bit more personal!
The official stuff.
Let me take some stress of your shoulders and keep you on track when it comes to the not-so-exciting stuff such as the paperwork. Although my fee doesn't cover the license costs, I am more than happy to provide reminders and help you get the paperwork you need on time and in the right order.
If your stressing over other aspects of your wedding, I can also lend my local knowledge to aid your cause.
Thinking you're going to need a wedding rehearsal? No problem - just let me know the time and date well in advance.
A little more.
Although I am your celebrant and primarily focused on making the ceremony awesome, I am also a longtime Queenstown local with plenty of knowledge about other weddings vendors, fantastic locations, and everything else Queenstown has to offer.
If you need any help or suggestions I am always willing to help!
On the day.
When it comes to the big day, I'll be there approx. 30 mins prior to the set ceremony time to ensure we are all good to go!
Every wedding is different, so depending on the setup we will organise for me to rendezvous with the bride if necessary and address the guests so that they are ready for the brides arrival. Generally after the ceremony I will ensure the paperwork is all complete and then I'll leave you to celebrate!
