Ok, so I’ve got your attention and you love the look, feel and vibe of what I’m offering. Now there’s just one more question you probably want answered. “What is Natalie’s service fee and I hope she is available for our date and time?”
Well, in the scheme of your wedding budget the Celebrants fee is usually less than 3% of the total wedding cost, yet it’s such a big decision on selecting the right person for the role. Therefore, the investment you make in a Celebrant is vital to the success of your entire day. You don’t get a second chance if it doesn’t work out…. You get one chance so don’t make your decision on who is the cheapest around town – you’ll be regretting it otherwise. Make sure the experience, expertise, energy and style of your Sunshine Coast Celebrant is what you invest in, not the price. And lastly, have trust and faith in your Celebrant that they WILL DELIVER …. and then some!
Your personalised ceremony and wedding day investment for my awesome Sunshine Coast Marriage Celebrant services start from $700 + gst and vary pending on the date, time of day, location, guests and travel expenses incurred. I offer a complete all inclusive package with no out of pocket expenses.
It’s important that I get to know you both and hear the juicy details of your journey together, so I can create your ‘one of kind, raw and personalised ceremony service’ that is professionally narrated with a relaxed elegant style, light heartedness and a few giggles to keep things romantically amusing. Should you require a Marriage Certificate through Births Deaths & Marriages for your surname change, I will happily provide and assist you with the application and also lodge the paperwork on your behalf, for total convenience.
Please call or email for a no obligation quote regarding my all inclusive service package and I will happily provide all the answers to everything you need to know when it come’s to getting married in Australia. I’m a wealth of knowledge and would love to share my experiences with you during our planning appointments, emails and phone calls.

NAMING CEREMONIES & RENEWAL OF VOWS
If you would like to arrange a naming ceremony for your new born baby, children or perhaps yourself, if you’ve just been liberated with a new name (& a new life chapter), then contact me. Let’s celebrate together with a pagan service that will enrich the spirits of all involved. Naming ceremonies are personalised to your individual taste, and I’m the inspiration who will provide the beautiful and creative concepts, together with a heartfelt friendly delivery, to ensure it’s a celebration to remember. Naming ceremonies are sacred, unique to that little soul, and are a celebration of one’s identity, of a new beginning, their unity within the family, their birthright, and where we can all provide blessings and gratitude for ‘their life’ and life on Earth itself. Holding a ceremony like this in nature, barefoot and one with the Earth is favourable!
Naming Ceremonies start from $395 and are available at any location held on the Sunshine Coast and hinterland. Please keep in mind most Saturday afternoons are booked out for weddings, so mornings work well.
A Renewal of Vows Ceremony is a moment where we turn back time, reflecting on the journey so far, your achievements, the special day you pledged your vow to each other, and the future of your commitment to each other by reaffirming your vow and your united love as one. A vow renewal incorporates a similar approach to a wedding ceremony, (without the legals) celebrating the best years of your life. If you thought a birthday bash was good, then your in for a treat because there is nothing quite like celebrating the tribute and honour of your love. This special ceremony is often shared on your 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 40th or 50th wedding anniversary. Or when ever it tickles your fancy. Surprise your guests, create new secret vows and stimulate the senses with some raw emotion, either way, it’s an honouring to the constitution of marriage and to your union. If your considering a vow renewal then well done – that’s the first step to recognising and understanding what an incredible loving union you possess which is worth celebrating. I would be privileged to share in this sacred honour and celebration with you both.
A Renewal of Vows Ceremony start from $495 and are available at any location held on the Sunshine Coast and hinterland. Please keep in mind that most Saturday afternoons are booked out for weddings.
