My basic fee is $300 but this may vary slightly based on the distance that may be required to travel. There may be no charge for travel depending on the area but as the Bay of Islands covers a large part of Northland and getting from A to B can sometimes include the need to travel by boat! Its better to contact me to discuss your requirements in more detail and I’ll be happy to give to an accurate quote.
Please remember that their is also a small fee of $150 to pay directly to the Department of Births, Deaths and Marriages for the licence which you can apply for online.
Finally I do ask couples to pay a deposit of $100 NZD to secure their chosen date since I never perform more than one ceremony per day. The remaining balance is simply due before the wedding day.
My fee is includes:
- Designing a wedding ceremony to suit your wishes.
- Giving you time and flexibility for your wedding service – in case of delays, poor weather, etc. Please note that I will only ever perform one ceremony per day so their is no danger of overlaps.
- Handling legal paperwork for couples and ensuring all the correct documentation is completed and sent to the department of Births, Deaths and Marriages.
- Providing a presentation copy of your wedding ceremony as a keep sake of your special day.
