Lindy Cooke Celebrant

Ceremonies

I am an authorised marriage celebrant who loves designing all kinds of ceremonies. Here is a short list of the special occasions I am often asked to take part in:

Weddings & Elopements

Includes witnessing and lodgement of all legal documents with the Registry of Births Deaths & Marriages in the State or Territory in which your marriage occurred and a decorative Certificate of Marriage.

Naming Days

Includes a decorative Certificate of Naming for the parents and individual Certificates of Appointment for your chosen Godparents, Guideparents or Guardians (for those who choose not to have a religious ceremony.)

Funerals & Memorial Services

Ceremonies designed to resonate with you, your family members, friends and acquaintances.

Scattering / Burial of the Ashes

A farewell that honours your beliefs and the precious memories of your loved one.

Renewal of Vows

Includes a decorative Certificate (for those who wish to renew their wedding vows as part of their ongoing commitment to each other).

Commitment Ceremonies

Includes a decorative Certificate (for those who do not want, or who are unable, to be legally married in Australia). This ceremony can be very similar to a wedding ceremony, including exchange of rings, vows etc. It does not, however, include any legal elements.

Life Celebrations

Such as a companion pet farewell, retirement ceremony or a business / boat launch or house blessing. Includes a decorative Certificate to mark each important event.

Ceremony Booking Fees

To secure the date and time of your booking with me, a non-refundable $250.00 booking fee is required with the balance payable no later than 4 weeks prior to the ceremony. If the time frame is less than 4 weeks, payment in full is required once your chosen date has been booked with me (except for funerals when payment for my services has been arranged through a Funeral Director.)

All ceremonies include an optional complementary ceremony (please refer Services page).

Vehicle costs over a 100km round trip plus overnight accommodation, if required, are in addition to the ceremony costs. These are per the current ATO recommended allowance. Please note: I do not charge for my travel time to or from your venue.
