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 and sweet and meaningful to you and your partner. Or it can be your own love story. With plenty of bells and 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 have a face to face meeting to get to know each other and what type of ceremony you dream of. From there you have regular email contact with me regarding your ceremony design and inclusions. As we get closer to the date I recommend a rehearsal to ensure the ceremony flows smoothly on your wedding day.

Depending on what you choose to do on the day 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 duties.

My fees are $750 plus travel of $35/$55 in the Carins and Tablelands regions In general, most couples spend 2% of their wedding budget on a Marriage Celebrant. Though without us, there is no wedding, heh heh now that’s funny.

My passion for love and laughter 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 loving family and friends, an unforgettable part of your wedding day will be your bespoke wedding ceremony.

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”
