How Much?

My base rate for all weddings is $500.
This covers:

  • Meeting with the couple before the ceremony.
  • Writing and editing the ceremony.
  • Rehearsal.
  • Ceremony on the day.
  • Any travel costs directly related to the above.

Please note: I am booked and will start work on your ceremony only when the deposit is paid.

Wellington, Lower Hutt, Wainuiomata, Upper Hutt & Porirua

My base rate of $500 for local areas.
If there are any additional expenses I am upfront and will work this through with you before your day.

As registry weddings are no longer available, I offer an informal small ceremony in the Wellington area or at my own home.

  • At my home: $250.
  • Wellington area: $300.

Kāpiti Coast & Ōtaki

My base rate of $500, plus additional costs due to the distance.

My base rate of $500, plus additional costs due to the distance, including an overnight stay in order to fit in the rehearsal and ceremony.

Wider New Zealand & Overseas

I do love to travel, and any excuse to travel around New Zealand, or maybe to the Islands is always welcome. Rates for weddings further out from Wellington would be negotiated separately, so let’s talk!

On a budget?

If you are on a tight budget due to special circumstances, let’s have a chat anyway. We may be able to work something out.

When to book

As soon as you have a rough idea when you want to be married, please contact me so we can pencil in your dates. Summer is always a busy time, and some couples book me 18 months in advance for the preferred Summer Saturday ceremony.
