The very first question I get on my initial phone call from couples is: “we are just wanting pricing”. Sound familiar?
So how do you know what is the appropriate cost for your Celebrant…quite simply you don’t. Fees can vary, however, this is not an indicator of the Professionalism of the Celebrant. If you add all the total costs of your Wedding and allow 10% for your Celebrant, I’m sure you will be quite happy with the fee you have been quoted!
You need to chose your Celebrant based on your connection first and fee second. My fee is now listed on my Website for these reasons, as I don’t want to waste time for couples who only want to know costs, it’s an indicator only… meeting me is your true decision maker.
Remember your Celebrant plays a very important role in your Ceremony, quite simply if you don’t have a Celebrant you don’t have a Legal wedding!
I hope this has helped a little.
