FAQ's

Why Choose Me?

WHY CHOOSE AMETHYST CELEBRANCY?
Guaranteed personalised ceremony. All information is confidential and kept in a locked filing cabinet.

Not more than 18 months out but no less than ONE CLEAR MONTH before ceremony.


HOW LATE AS A BRIDE AM I ALLOWED TO BE?

Not more than 15 minutes PLEASE. Your guests and particularly your groom will not be very impressed and depending on the weather, could be at risk. Please be mindful of the time. Please have a family member or guest call me with details of time.


HOW MANY ATTENDANTS CAN I HAVE?
As many as you like, but be mindful of space in your venue and the positioning of myself at the end of the line….. I need to be able to get to you and back to my position without disturbing your guests… 5 is usually the maximum.


WHY DON’T I GET A FULL REFUND IF I CANCEL?
Unfortunately, everything costs money these days and the banks have charges… the administration fee covers the cost of these charges.

I will endeavour to accommodate you with a time that’s suits.


DO I HAVE A QUALITY, PORTABLE SOUND SYSTEM SO THAT ALL THE GUESTS WILL HEAR THE CEREMONY?
It is crucial that your guests hear the ceremony. I have a good quality machine with cordless microphone that will do the job.


DO I PROVIDE A CD PLAYER?
No. I have the ability to plug in a memory stick or SD card. I can also Bluetooth to your phone.


WILL THE CELBRANT ORDER THE STANDARD MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE FOR YOU (NEEDED FOR CHANGE OF NAME ON DRIVING LICENCE AND PASSPORT)
I can order the standard / commemorative certificate for you and save you the hassle. The cost is a $50 flat fee.


WILL THE CELEBRANT COME UP WITH IDEAS FOR YOUR CEREMONY IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT BUT DON’T KNOW WHAT?
I really enjoy creating special elements for weddings e.g. one client had a Chinese background and wanted to incorporate this in some symbolic way into her wedding. We incorporated a Chinese Priest into the ceremony who described how a Chinese wedding used to take place centuries ago. She was very impressed and I was so pleased for her.
