Your wedding day is one magical moment in your story together, but it is important to make it memorable, to reflect who you are as a couple. Here are some words that people have said about our involvement together, it is so lovely that my couples take the time to send me, not only photos, but beautiful feedback. This will help you get an idea of my vibe...

About Me

I’m Lucy, a celebrant, a performer, MC and singer, actor, voice over artist. I friggin LOVE weddings. Same sex couples, straight couples, whatevs, the only difference is the paperwork…(when will the &&&%% government catch up?!!!!) and Naming Days for your kidlets too and Vow Renewals... I am genuinely excited about making your wedding day amazing for you, your partner and your guests. The ceremony is yours: we can make it as colourful, kooky, sincere and downright delicious as you like. I am based in Petersham, inner-west Sydney. Am I a hipster?! No, but i do love adidas!! I have travelled all over Australia to marry excellent peeps. I truly love my job and am privileged to do what I do. I meet so many amazing people and I facilitate one of the best days of their lives (as cheesy as that sounds it really is true). I also have a few characters in the closet, as I am a performer and singer, so if you are looking for something 'different' then I will be pleased to get one out of the cupboard.

Your ceremony will be guided by you, it will be unique and tailored specifically for you. I look forward to making this THE most memorable day of your lives.

Ceremonies

I am a celebrant that does not judge. Marriages, whether you are same-sex couple, or a straight couple, your ceremony will be treated with the same respect and time. All relationships are equal, when will the government catch up?! I also do Naming Ceremonies for your children, describing the love of a child is difficult, how can words sum up your miracle. Vow renewals are great, there are no rules!!!

Renewal of vows

" My wife and I were thrilled with Lucy, when we decided to renew our vows. Lucy understood the spirit of the celebration and worked with us to incorporate our original vows into the ceremony. We highly recommend her."

Dave & Jenny

Baby Naming

" Dear Lucy– thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job with our ceremony, it was so personal and beautiful.. We have a lasting memory of a wonderful day shared with our family and close friends. We couldn't have asked for anything more. "

Dean & Phillip

Weddings

" Choosing Lucy as our celebrant was the easiest and greatest thing we did for our wedding day. She’s such a spunk, so much fun and was the perfect celebrant for us (and she helped us navigate the nasty “marriage is defined as between a man and woman” "

Anthony & Megan

Planning your wedding

There are some important steps that we will take to plan your perfect ceremony. Yeah some legal stuff... and paperwork.. don't worry I do all of that boring stuff, you just have to worry about looking fabulous on the day...

STEP 1: Get to know each other… ‘meet n greet’

I'll organise a time when we can get together for a coffee or cup of tea and get to know each other and see if the vibe is right...  once you have decided its a go ahead we will organise a longer meeting...

STEP 2: Organise a longer meeting at a date which is convenient

This usually involves a couple of hours, if you are not too far away, I can come to your house. If you are in another state we can use Skype or face time. At this meeting I will ask you lots of questions and take some notes, to get to know you both as a couple, and we will make decisions about what you want or don't want in the ceremony. Don't worry if you don't have any ideas as I will come armed with many... or not, depending on what you want... At this meeting we will also sign the NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage) and I will discuss the legal wording with you too...

STEP 3: I will send you some questions over email

I will send you some questions over email, this is so YOU are informing that content of the ceremony and I am not 'making it up' or using language that neither of you like or use... When I get your responses then I can start writing the ceremony draft.

STEP 4: I will send you the final draft and we will organise a rehearsal

I will send you the final draft ceremony over email and you can edit as you see fit... I will capture the essence of who you are as a couple... The only thing you need to write are the vows... and then I will send you a final draft ceremony to sign off on over email. We will also organise a rehearsal, preferably at the ceremony venue prior to the wedding day. If we cannot meet at the venue then we can organise to meet somewhere else.

FAQs

Perhaps you have no idea what to do, hopefully these will answer some of your questions, but really the best way to find stuff out is to get in touch with me and I can answer them personally. I look forward to hearing from you.

Will you organise all the paperwork?

Yes I will organise all the paperwork prior to the ceremony. There is one form we need to fill out at least 31 days prior to the ceremony day and that is the NOIM (notice of intended marriage) marriage forms On the day we need to sign the declaration of marriage (form 14 and 16)  and also my celebrant registrar book and the Marriage certificate that i give you on the day.

Do I provide my own PA system for the ceremony?

I will bring my own battery operated PA system, you can play music through the system on ipod or iphone... it is better for you to ask someone to operate the music on the day... I'll be there 20 minutes prior to ceremony to make it happen... I also have a signing table with a lovely white cloth if you need it too...

My partner is overseas how can we organise a wedding in Australia?

The first thing that needs to be done is to submit a Notice of Intended Marriage Form (NoIM). This can be completed a few different ways, given that your Fiancé is Overseas. 1.) You can complete the form and submit it to me, with your Fiancé(e) signing the form when he/she arrives in Australia – he/she can sign the form anytime BEFORE the marriage ceremony takes place. 2.) You can have your Fiancé(e) complete the form (his/her signature must be witnessed by – an Australian Diplomatic Officer, an Australian Consular Officer, an employee of the Commonwealth authorized under paragraph 3 (c) of the Consular Fees Act 1955, an employee of the Australian Trade, Commission authorized under paragraph 3 (d) of the Consular Fees Act 1955 or a notary public). Your Fiancé(e) can send you the form with his/her signature witnessed by any of the above and we can finalise your section of the paperwork together. You can then submit it to me. Prior to the Marriage Ceremony I will need to see your ORIGINAL Birth Certificate or passport and also your Fiancé(e)s Passport and/or Birth Certificate too. If you don’t have these available now, that is OK, provided I see them before the wedding takes place. It is always best to seek professional legal advice, relevant to your individual immigration situation.

What identification do you need to see?

I just need to sight your original passport or birth certificate and if you are divorced I need to sight the most recent divorce papers, with the date the divorce is legal. Also if you have current drivers license that would be great too.

Should we have a rehearsal before the ceremony?

I highly recommend a rehearsal, you will be so nervous and full of emotions on the day, it will run smoother if you know physically what you are doing. Also if you have family and friends from overseas or interstate a rehearsal really starts the whole wedding festival vibe.
