Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  Why should I use a Celebrant for my ceremony?

A:  Including a celebrant in your ceremomy will help give it structure and allow you the freedom to socialise and celebrate with your guests!  I will write your ceremony and give you loads of ideas on what to include.  PLUS, if you or your family members are nervous about speaking in public, I will do it all for you!  Yay!


Q:  How much does a celebrant cost and what does this include?

A:  This celebrant (Lizzy!) will cost you $250. I will write your ceremony and provide you with a variety of choices to include for the readings.  I will bring my own PA system so that all of your guests can hear anyone that makes a speech and I will provide a lovely Naming Day certificate to everyone who participated in the ceremony (usually god parents etc).  I also have a table and chairs if they are needed for the ceremony (to rest things on or perhaps you need a seat because the baby is getting a little heavy!).


Q:  How far in advance should I book? 

A:  Obviously there are certain times of the year that are busier than others, so I recommend that as soon as you know your date you send me a message so we can start the planning process and book you in!


Q:  What is the shortest lead-up time you need to organise our ceremony?

A:   Providing you have the time to conduct a face-to-face meeting with me, I can organise your ceremony within a week of meeting you.  However, my availability will depend on my bookings at that time.


Q:  We're a little bit different and so would like to have our ceremony on the beach, can you do this?

A:  Yes.  We can hold your ceremony wherever you would like, however if the location is outside the local area, there may be an additional cost for travel.


Q:  Do I have to pay you a deposit?

A:  Yes.  This will guarantee that I will not take another booking on the date you requested.  The deposit can be paid in cash at the face-to-face meeting or via bank transfer.


Q:  Do we have to feed you on the day?

A:  No.  A Naming Day is about you celebrating with your family and friends so shortly after the ceremony concludes I will make a discrete exit.


Q:  How much time do you need to set up?

A:  I will arrive approximately half an hour before the ceremony is due to start.


Q:  How do I book you?

A:  Simple, send me a message or call me and we can start the ball rolling!
