BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS

1. The Booking Fee. To secure your booking, date and fee quote, all bookings are subject to a non-refundable booking fee of $200.  An emailed copy of the payment receipt to info@reneethecelebrant.com.au is required as confirmation and to secure your date  within 14 days of confirming the booking. 

Payment via EFT, invoice will be provided to you via quickbooks. Please put your full name as a reference. Remainder of celebrant fee is required via EFT 14 days prior to your wedding date.

2. Date change. In order to change the date or venue of your wedding, couples will incur a fee of $150 to cover admin costs. If you decide to change your wedding date and the celebrant isn't available on two new suggested dates your booking fee of $200 is non-refundable.

3. Cancellations. Cancellation or rescheduling of NOIM meeting/signing requires minimum 48 hours’ notice. Cancellation or rescheduling of a celebrant booking requires a minimum of 60 day’s notice.

4. Travel Costs. Complimentary within 50km of metro Melbourne. Further travel costs vary depending on the location of the wedding.  (For every 50km beyond metro Melbourne add $100 to your fee)

5. Extra Time. A detailed run sheet is required prior to your wedding day. If extra additional time is required due to lateness, an additional cost may incur to accommodate the Celebrants time. This is up to $100 per hour.

6. COVID19 Cancellation. If COVID19 government restrictions mean the wedding can no longer take place on the agreed date or location,  the couple and celebrant must negotiate a new date to take place within 12 months of the original booking date based on both of their availability. 

7. Extenuating circumstances.  It’s at the celebrants discretion during this time to waive any of the above T&C’s due to extenuating circumstances eg. COVID19 and complex  circumstances. Please ensure any changes agreed upon are in writing.

8. Identification. The marriage guidelines state that "It is an offence for a celebrant to solemnise a marriage before this evidence of date and place of birth has been produced by each of the parties to the proposed marriage." Please ensure you have your birth certificate and passport/drivers license ready when filling out the NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage)

9. Drunk couples can’t be legally married. Of course you’d like to have a drink or two on your wedding day and that’s fine by me, but if either of the couple are too inebriated, it’s illegal for the Celebrant to perform the ceremony. Therefore an alternate date will need to be agreed upon and a further fee of $750 charged to perform a short and sweet, legally binding ceremony.

10. NOIM transfer. If I complete a NOIM with you and you decide to book a different Celebrant later, you will incur a $150 admin fee for me to transfer the NOIM to the new Celebrant
