Unique Weddings in the Blue Mountains

A wedding is one of the most important days of your life and it is my job to make sure that you have the ceremony you want, that you are happy and stress-free, and that it has the “awww” factor. From handfasting ceremonies to ring warmings and more, I can help you celebrate your big day in a truly unique way.

You can select a ready-made ceremony from my collection or I can tailor an individual ceremony to reflect your unique personalities. Whether you want your wedding to be traditional and classic, or fun and fuss-free, I can create the ideal event in the stunning location of the Blue Mountains. If you would like to write your own service or vows I can offer you a little guidance when needed.

  • Handfastings

  • Jumping the Broom

Meetings and paperwork can all be done remotely (via email and skype). The wedding can take place at a private location of your choosing or at Tina Marie’s place under the weeping cherry tree (Leura).

Only the couple, celebrant and two witnesses are allowed to be present. If you want a professional photographer then they should be one of the witnesses also – this is allowed.

You can also live-stream the ceremony to family and friends.

Non-citizens and non-residents of Australia are allowed to be married in Australia provided the Notice of Intended Marriage is lodged with me within the required time frame (one month prior to service). It must be signed and witnessed by an Australian Diplomatic Officer, Australian Consular Officer, employee of the Commonwealth or Australian Trade Office or a Notary Public.
