Fees, Terms & FAQ

Fees vary per event. They will be agreed with you beforehand.

FAQ.

Can we meet before I book you?

Yes. If you require an in-person consultation meeting prior to booking there is a one time non-refundable fee of $25.00 to cover time and travel. This must be paid at the time the appointment is confirmed. This fee will be discounted from your ceremony retainer fee at the time of booking. If it’s digital there is no charge. Skype/Facetime/Google hangout.

How far will you travel and does it cost extra?

There is a mileage charge of 50 cents per mile on all events to cover driving time and costs, billed 7 days prior to the event. 150 miles each way is a reasonable amount of travel. Any more than that and hotels will be involved.

What is needed to book you?

We agree on the date/s and then you secure your booking. A non-refundable retainer of 50% is required to book the date.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE A CONFIRMED BOOKING UNTIL YOU HAVE PAID THE RETAINER FEE.

Verbal booking is not sufficient to retain your date/s. This retainer is non-refundable and is 50% of the total fee agreed upon subject to addition and upgrade [such as adding a rehearsal or a blessing of the reception meal].

I didn’t book a rehearsal and now I think I need one. Can I book it?

Please be aware that weddings booked without rehearsals are subject to officiant’s availability if a rehearsal becomes necessary. If I cannot provide a last minute rehearsal, don’t panic. Have a family member stand in.   If you have not booked a rehearsal, you will have to ensure that you have instructed your wedding party to carry out your wishes. I simply cannot be responsible for the processional and recessional if I am not part of the planning process. Simply put – no rehearsal means I only arrive in time to marry you and there is no run through.

All pricing is firm, if you book your wedding and then wish to add to the package, an upgrade fee will be charged. A wedding date booking that has a rehearsal added, will incur a rehearsal charge in addition to the charge quoted.

I am no longer getting married on that date, can I have my money back?

Retainers are non refundable. Other clients will have been turned away and the retainer covers that loss. If you change the date of your ceremony a new retainer may be needed.

Do you work with a contract?

Weddings over $200.00 will be subject to contract

Can you book rooms and buy flowers and items for my ceremony on my behalf?

Music, flowers, seating, and other sundry procurement of items for the ceremony [candles, sand, glasses, vases etc etc] are the responsibility of the couple.
