Premium Wedding Ceremony Package $995

This is a very popular package. Your Premium Wedding Ceremony Package includes everything in my Full Wedding Ceremony Package (below) plus:

  • As my only wedding on the day. I will be fully contactable should you need me at any time prior to the ceremony commencing.

  • You can extend the length of your wedding ceremony to up 60 minutes.

  • Not only am I happy to help you write your personalised vows, I’ll prepare your cue cards, so you don’t need to bring anything on the day, except maybe a couple of rings.
