Weddings

 

Since being appointed a Civil Marriage Celebrant in 2007, I have conducted many weddings throughout Australia and would love to be involved in yours!

My ceremony packages start at $450 and include:

A basic set ceremony where you have the option of writing your own promises to each other or choosing from a selection of vows I provide.   (Max. 0-10 guests, Note:  Conditions apply)

A bespoke ceremony which is personally written around you and your fiancé’s journey together.

I look aftJacqui Clarke and Grahamer all the legal documents and ensure everything runs smoothly throughout the ceremony. My husband, Graham, (pictured here with me) is usually in the background looking after the PA (professional, portable and battery-operated) and your ceremony music.  So you get double the value!

I arrive at your venue 30-60 minutes before the ceremony commences to ensure your venue is set up and that no one has decided to set up for a picnic in your chosen spot (for example)!

I work closely with your photographer, musicians, wedding planner or anyone else who may be involved in your ceremony so that everyone is working together to give you a smooth-flowing, fabulous ceremony.

Civil Unions

 

Celebrate your love and lifelong commitment to one another with a special ceremony that I would love to create with you!

I am a registered Civil Partnership Notary authorised to perform a state-sanctioned ceremony and will register your civil partnership on your behalf with the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

Couples must provide notice of intention to enter a civil partnership with a minimum of ten full days prior to the ceremony date and one partner must live in Queensland.

If you engage me to perform your legal Civil Partnership ceremony, once marriage equality is recognised in Australia I will provide the legal documentation to register your marriage at no extra cost.  I look forward to the day when celebrants can legally marry all committed couples and register their marriage in Australia.

Renewal of Vows

 

WOW!  You’ve made it to 10, 20, or even more years together and you want the world to know that you’d do it all over again if you could!

Perhaps you eloped recently, or married overseas and now you want to celebrate your marriage with family and friends.

In this world where divorce seems to be the norm, a couple managing to stay together through thick and thin deserves to have a celebration!

“Jacqui was just a superb find for us! We were planning a Renewal of Vows from the UK for just after Christmas and being so far away needed confidence in someone for such a special event.  Jacqui held our hand in all our planning, was supportive and totally professional.  On the day, it was magic!  She led us through a beautiful ceremony and created the ambience by being on time, organised and totally wonderful – thank you so much!”
