Please check out Frequently Asked Questions below, in case your question is already covered. If not, please contact me and I will do my best to help!
Do you travel outside of Whangamata? - Potentially! Please contact me with your location and wedding date, as it depends on my availability. Travel fees will apply.
What if I want something different added in to our ceremony? I am happy to incorporate any special rituals or variations into your ceremony, such as Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Joining of Hands, and more.
How will you ensure our ceremony is unique, not a fill-in-the-blanks ceremony? - I take the time to find out about you and your story as a couple, and I incorporate this story into a ceremony that is all about you and your own special love story.
We just want a short, simple ceremony. Can you do this for us? - I sure can! But short and simple doesn't mean boring and meaningless. Without being frilly or over-the-top I can put together a fun and special ceremony for you and the friends and family who are coming to share it with you.
We're stuck on our vows. Can you help? I can give you examples of modern and traditional vows, plus a guideline for writing your own.
We would like to include a reading but how do we choose one that's suitable? - Choose something close to your heart, but if you're stuck I can give you a personalised selection to choose from.
How much do you charge? - My fees are from $350 - $500. This includes all pre-wedding meetings and correspondence, writing your personalised unique ceremony, wedding rehearsal, the big day, and all legal requirements fulfilled. I can also supply PA system and signing table & chair. There may be an extra charge for travel outside the Whangamata area.
What input do we have on the wording of our ceremony? I will use the information I get from you both to put a very special and unique ceremony together for you. I will share this with you every step of the way, so that you know exactly what you're getting, and your input is both welcomed and essential. It's all about you!
What if we want an off-peak wedding? If your wedding date is mid-week, or out of the summer season, I can offer a special rate. Talk to me!
