Bonnie Harris Wedding Celebrant

I’m an enthusiastic alternative wedding celebrant with great ideas in helping you to create your ideal simple, elegant wedding ceremony, designed for you and your partner, including writing personal vows. Love is excitement, laughter, passion, and acceptance and courage to do what you desire and want.

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

A wedding ceremony should be inspired by what you love in life. Wear the wedding dress you want, invite whoever you cherish 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 is a true reflection of who you are so that it represents your ethical style and values. It can be short, sweet and romantic your own love story. Or with plenty of bells, hoopla hoops, wine and the language of love.

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. As we get closer to the date, we’ll decide if a rehearsal is necessary to ensure the ceremony flows smoothly. To state with, I’ll give you some sample ceremonies. You choose what style you want, cut and paste till your heart is happy. Or steal bits off the internet and write your 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.

Fees depend 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 unique 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 somewhere in this beautiful country; YIPPEE let the party start.

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