Celebrant Frequently Asked Questions

I’ll be glad to answer your questions when you come in for your first meeting. In the meantime, here’s some of the more common questions that get asked.

Booking your wedding suppliers, including a Marriage Celebrant doesn’t have to feel like a daunting task. Find out how it all works with my easy to follow guide.

As soon as you have locked in your wedding date and venue, it is a good idea to confirm wedding suppliers, including your Marriage Celebrant.

I offer up to 3 meetings and you are welcome to contact me as often as needed in the lead up to your wedding day.

You will need to provide your original birth certificates or birth extracts or passports.

Of course you can! It’s very memorable and special to read your own vows to each other. Your vows will be clearly printed out ready for the day.

A marriage ceremony can be as long or as short as you want it to be! I will listen to your requests so the ceremony reflects who you are as a couple.

Depending on bridal party numbers and what you prefer, I can either stand to the side or the middle. 

The certificate you receive on the wedding day is a keepsake only. You will be required to sign certificates with two witnesses aged over 18 years old.

Once you receive the official marriage certificate, you can use this as evidence to then request your surname to be changed. More information is provided during our initial meeting.

In one word- Lighthearted!
I’m suited to fun loving, down to earth couples and I love those relaxed wedding day vibes!

Karine was absolutely fantastic, she gave us a beautifully personalised wedding ceremony that all our guests commented on. We had to change our venue due to a fire risk, but she handled it like the absolute pro she is. Karine was a lovely smiling calm face to help us through and enjoy the moment.
