Full Ceremony

I am a Registered Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant and Member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand.

 

I am based in Timaru but travel all over South Canterbury, Canterbury, McKenzie District and North Otago. Many want to get married on a farm or another location  or venue different to where they live  

 

Costs for this service are quoted at a

flat rate of $400 in Timaru and Surrounds, outside areas may have travel added.

 

 This does not include your fee to BDM for the Marriage Licence.

If you are out of these areas such as North of Christchurch, Christchurch, Dunedin, Wanaka, Queenstown for example depending on your location, costs including travel and accommodation  will be included in a rate that will be quoted to you when you enquire.

 

Everyone has a different dream wedding so please feel free to discuss your plans so we can cater to your wishes.
