CELEBRANT FEES

National surveys suggest the average celebrant is a retired 60yr old female. I am not an average celebrant, I am young, fresh and provide a bespoke ceremony to suit your personal request. I understand people work on different budgets, but remember you get what you pay for. You can get married without a ring, a dress, a cake, but you cannot get married without a celebrant and you want to find the right one for your personality and needs.
