Bonnie Harris Wedding Celebrant

I’m an alternative woman who happens to be a wedding celebrant who isn’t enthusiastic on ambitiously large scale weddings. If you wish I can help to create your ideal simple, elegant wedding ceremony. For you and your partner, I have romantic ideas with writing your 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. Design the ceremony you want and include ONLY 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, CAREFREE fabulous wedding day. Don’t do what others think you should do, or there will be tears before bedtime and lots of stress in your life. 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 and the language of love.

What it Costs

We start with a phone call or email and then a face to face meeting to get to know each other and what type of ceremony you want. Then I’ll email 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 alternative ceremony, some couples do that. 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.

Passion love and 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.
