Bonnie Harris Wedding Celebrant

I’m an enthusiastic alternative wedding celebrant with great ideas in helping you to create your ideal bespoke wedding ceremony. A bespoke wedding ceremony is one designed especially for you and your partner, inclduing writing your own vows. Love is the courage to do what you want. And love is excitement, laughter, passion, and acceptance.

What is a Bespoke Wedding?

Bespoke Wedding Ceremonies come in many forms, some are big glorious alternative rituals and some are elegant, simple ceremonies. You design the ceremony you want to have and include the people, vows and other special moments that are important to you and your partner.

For your bespoke wedding ceremony be inspired by what you love in life. Wear the wedding dress you want. And invite whoever you love the most. As it’s your wedding day follow your creative heart. Make it your own magical fabulous wedding day. Don’t do what others think you should do or there will be tears before bedtime. Your wedding ceremony be a true reflection of who you are, so that it represents your own ethical style and values. It can be short sweet and romantic. Or it can be your own love story. With plenty of bells, whistles, and hoopla hoops with lots of wine and words. Umm maybe the other way around, oh la la lots of words very little wine.

What it Costs

We start with a phone call or email inquiry and then maybe a face to face meeting to get to know each other and what type of ceremony you want. We can have regular emails regarding your ceremony design. As we get closer to the date we’ll decide if a rehearsal is necessary to ensure the ceremony flows smoothly.

I’ll give you some sample ceremonies to start with. You choose what ceremony you would like. Cut and paste till your heart is happy. Or steal bits off the internet and write your own wedding ceremony. Some couples do that.

On the day if you need I can supply a funky gorgeous garden setting to sign your marriage documents on. I also can supply one amazing PA cordless mic for you and head mic for me. Above all, I lodge all required documents with Birth, Death & Marriages because that’s part of my fabulous wonderful job.

My fees depends on what you want as every wedding is different. $675 plus travel of $35/$55 in the Cairns and Tablelands regions. In general, most couples spend 2% of the wedding budget on a Marriage Celebrant. Though without us, there is no wedding, heh heh now that’s funny.

My passion for love and good fun times will aid in creating your ideal wedding ceremony. With many magnificent natural outdoor settings, there will be a special backdrop for you and your partner. Surrounded by your closest family and best friends. You will have an unforgettable wedding ceremony followed by a fabulous wedding celebration. YIPPEE let the party start
