GOOD VIBES GUARANTEED
Life's a party
Best served with love!
"WOW. Where do we even start!
We couldn't have asked for a better person to take the lead on our big day.
It was as if Amy had known us our entire relationship!
All of our guests have commented on how unique and fun our ceremony was and I still remember reading what she had drafted for us for us for the first time and it gave us chills. It was perfect.
Thank you Amy - you are an absolute Marriage Making Legend!"

Well hey there!!
I am a super fun Sydney marriage celebrant with big teeth that don't bite and a heart full of lOVE.
I'm addicted to kindness and coffee, I know all the words to SHOOP and can seriously hold my own on a D Floor!
I'm a libra, a dreamer, a passionate traveller and
I believe in a balanced life full of hard work & holidays, espresso martinis & green smoothies.
I'm a hopeless romantic, who hates rom coms...
BUT FREAK'N LOVES WEDDINGS...
I have the best job in the world, full stop.
I am the bringer of good vibes, the starter of the biggest party of your life and your ultimate wing woman, sharing your love story and standing by your side as you shimmy your way into marriageville.
You won't get fluff or cliches with me and I prefer my cheese on crackers.
What you'll get is real words about two people in love who are absolutely pumped to have found their person.
thirsty for love?

Amy went above and beyond for our big day. From start to finish she was excellent.
The ceremony was so personal, Amy has a way with words and really captured the feel of the day and the love between my (now) wife and I. We had relatives asking us if she was a friend as she summed us up and told our story so well.
For any couples out there looking for a fun, caring, progressive and great spirited celebrant, look no further! She rocks!

What paperwork is involved when getting married?All good things come with admin so there is indeed some paperwork that I will manage and guide you through. The first legal form to lodge is the Notice of Intended Marriage and this needs to be witnessed and in your celebrant’s hot little hand at least one month out from your ceremony date. There is another form to sign prior to the ceremony and the rest are signed on the day. All this is then lodged with the Births, Deaths & Marriages department and your marriage registered.
What ID do we need to provide?Proof of date and place of birth which can either be in the form of: A passport from your country of birth Or a birth certificate from your country of birth (with certified translation if another language other than English) and another form of photo ID such as your drivers license. If you have been previously married you also need to provide evidence that you are no longer, either in the form of a divorce or death certificate.
Can we organise our marriage ceremony from abroad?Of course! All our meetings can be undertaken virually and the paperwork submitted electronically. You will need to get your Notice of Intended Marriage form witnessed by a Notary Public in the country you are residing (usually found at the Australian consulate) then scan it through to me to lodge it.
Do you bring a PA and can I play music through it?Hells to the yeah, I bring my own top of the range PA which is portable and has blue tooth capability for your sweet ceremony tunes.
Do we need a rehearsal before the wedding?Personally I am not a believer in a big rehearsal prior to the big day. It's incredibly difficult to get all your people available at the same time (including me) and I spend the whole time talking to the couple anyway. So instead I do final catch up (just us) the week of the wedding so we can talk logistics, work through any complex chorey or inpromtu dance sequences and ensure we are ready to hustle like it's hot on the day.
Can we bring our dog to the wedding ceremony?Hells yeah! Give me all of the furry ones. I am a big dog lover and a huge fan of dogs at weddings but there are a few things to keep in mind if you're planning on bringing your pooch. Does your venue or location allow it first of all, and who will look after the doggo on the day. You need to have someone in charge of bringing the dog and getting it home so it's not running rogue and impacting your experience. There are excellent companies, such as Wedding Paws in Sydney, who offer dog sitting services specifically for weddings. Cannot recommend them more highly. And don't forget to bring a poo bag... coz shit happens.
How much does a celebrant cost in Sydney?How long is a piece of string? There are a truck load of celebrants servicing Sydney and its surrounds so the fees vary greatly. Some are retired hobbyists whilst others make marriages happen as a career, therefore the quality of service varies just as much as the price. There are celebrants in Sydney charging anywhere from $500 to $2200, but with anything, you pay peanuts, you get monkeys… and I don’t recommend having a monkey officiate your marriage. My fees are competitive but also perfectly reflective of my experience and the quality service I provide. There are slight variations depending on seasons, day of the week and location so get in touch for a quote.
Do you travel for weddings?Absolutely. I marry folks all over Sydney, the Illawarra & the Shoalhaven, the Southern Highlands and the Hunter Valley. I also travel further afield and marry cool cats across the country. If you have a unique location in mind for your elopement or wedding ceremony, get in touch for a detailed quote.
