NEW: RUBY CEREMONY

 

 

 

With Covid19 looking like it’s here to stay awhile, I’d like to offer my couples an elopement or micro- wedding alternative that is more than just the ‘legals only’ package (below) but less than the full bespoke Diamond Ceremony.

The Ruby ceremony micro-wedding option will be yourselves, and up to 20 guests (dependent on currency of NSW Health Guidelines);

The Ruby elopement option will be yourselves and 2 witnesses only (no guests) and I will be happy to provide you with the witnesses if required.

The ceremony will be 10-15 minutes in duration.

 

Inclusions:

  • All legal aspects covered before, during and after the ceremony.
  • An intimate, personalised short ceremony
  • Recording the ceremony or facilitating a live-stream if possible
  • Music for the ceremony
  • A signing table

 

Not Included:

 

  • No rehearsal
  • You write your own vows (I can provide guidance & tips if needed!)
  • An official marriage certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages. (I can order one on your behalf for $60 delivered to your home address if required- the one you keep on the day is commemorative and will not be sufficient if you wish to change your name).
  • Extra fee may be payable if I am travelling 100kms round trip to your rehearsal and wedding ceremony

  • No rehearsal
  • No bespoke ceremony is written for you- it is done and dusted in 5 minutes. Legals only. You will still need your 2 witnesses over the age of 18.
