Clone of What It Costs

What Does A Civil Celebrant Cost?

The fees you can expect to pay for a civil celebrant will depend on a number of factors:

  • the experience and skill of the celebrant,
  • the style and complexity of the ceremony, and
  • whether or not the ceremony is custom-crafted specifically for you.

As an entertaining and engaging Civil Celebrant my philosophy is a simple one; deliver great service, terrific value for money and a magical, memorable experience for my clients and their guests. Always!

My fees range from as little $350 to in excess of $800; depending on the nature, style and complexity of your particular ceremony. All my services are covered by my 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and flexible payment plans can be arranged on request.

A Beautiful Memory in My Heart Forever

First of all, I have to say if you choose Joyce as your marriage celebrant, you never gonna regret. You will have totally beautiful wedding same as you wish. I recommend her highly. This is real my review

From first meeting with Joyce everything has been through smoothly. Actually we had a "budget and small wedding", but it was not problem at all. We married in Joyce's house in Perth with beautiful river view. It was much better than any other venue seriously!

From first meeting, she gave us many tips for making perfect wedding with a budget like as violinist, music, cake and decorating. Nothing was problem. Joyce was just magician, she convert our small wedding to most romantic wedding. Such a beautiful wedding memory I will put in my heart forever

Joyce, I need to say thank you. I don't know what to say, but is something more than just one word from my heart. xoxo

Exactly What We Were Hoping For in a Marriage Celebrant

We booked Joyce as our marriage celebrant for our recent wedding ceremony in Perth. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with every step of the way.

She was a wealth of knowledge, helped us find a ceremony ritual that we loved, and helped tailor a ceremony that was short and sweet - exactly what we were hoping for. We had many of our wedding guests approach us on the day and comment on what a wonderful job Joyce did.

We would unreservedly recommend Joyce to anyone in Perth seeking a wedding celebrant who is warm, friendly and professional. Thank you Joyce!
