I arrive 30 minutes prior to your ceremony (with the exception of the coffee table wedding and the renewal of vows where I arrive 20 minutes prior). The other times mentioned are the times that you’d expect me to be leaving, and you’ll be organising your group photo or ordering your lunch. So, it’s just an idea of the maximum ‘time required’ guide for a stress free laid back time.
These details are a guide only – if you’re not sure – shoot me an email or a text – I’m one of the lowest maintenance celebrants (people) you could meet so I’m super flexible.
Do I do more than one wedding a day – sure do if there’s a nice spacing between them. There seems to be a ‘thing’ about this and some celebrants say they conduct only one a day so they can ‘focus solely on you’ – I think this is ridiculous and probably shows a lack of admin skills. On my Weddings in a Box days I marry up to 10 couples per day – What can I say, I’m organised! If you want me to ‘focus solely on you’ ALL day, it will probably set off my ‘bridezilla’ alarm and I’ll say no anyway 🙂
If you ask me if I’m available for a Noosa Beach wedding at 3pm during holiday season, the answer will be ‘no’, unless you can guarantee me a park in one of the nearby hotels (ain’t nobody got time for dat).
Do I travel – yes … but … there’s a cost associated. I stopped doing Brissy weekday afternoon weddings because the drive home would take me hours and my ADD acts up in traffic jams. Fly me somewhere – I’m cool with that.
Hope this helps!
