Terms and Conditions 2023-03-29T21:14:48+11:00


Marriage Celebrants are required by law to ensure a number of tasks are completed and that the marriage is registered appropriately according to the Marriage Act 1961.

To meet those requirements also means you, the marrying couple, are required to meet certain obligations too. The most obvious ones are to give Notice of Intended Marriage with a minimum one months notice, meet the legal requirement to marry, supply identification, birth certificates and/ or other legal paperwork for viewing by the celebrant as and when requested.

These are as follows;

1.A Booking Fee of $200 applies to Full service weddings and other selected services. 

This reserves a particular date and time for the couple. Once is booking is made you have secured me as you Celebrant.   I wouldn’t be able to accept other bookings for your booked date and time, this fee is non refundable or transferable.

Mini Weddings/Elopements and Kitchen Table Weddings all require payment upfront and the payment locks in your date and time.

2.Ceremony Starting Time 

In the event of your ceremony being delayed beyond 15 minutes, I will be entitled to proceed to my next commitment (if any) and cut your ceremony short. An Extra charge of $150 per hour, with a minimum of one hour, will apply once the ceremony is late beyond 30 minutes of the scheduled time. DO NOT BE LATE!!! Should you need me to return to complete the marriage. you will need to book in for a Kitchen Table wedding at a later date.   I will not agree to a transfer of NOIM at the late stage. Plan your day leaving plenty of time for things to go wrong or take longer than expected. Better to be safe than sorry.

3.Loan of Wedding Materials

The loan of any materials may or may not also be covered by the Booking Fee. A deposit may be required and if not returned a financial penalty may apply.  This also includes your wedding guests taking my belonging such as pens and vows books. 4.Copyright Copying and distributing wedding material given to you by Olga Vartanian, in most cases will be covered by copyright laws.  Therefore remains the property of Olga Vartanian. You must get permission before copying, printing or distributing any materials on loan or given to you.

5.Additional Travel Costs

Travel cost, incidentals and Accommodation charges will apply if OV should see fit.  Should accommodation be required, our policy is the best available rate at the venue or within 20 minutes travel time.   You will be charge for two nights should you require a rehearsal.

6. Any Outstanding Balance of the Fee

Your final payment is payable IN FULL 2 Weeks prior to the wedding day. Post payments or on the day payments are not accepted. Failing to make payment will result in cancellation of part or all services to you, I reserve the right to cease part or all of our service agreement at anytime. Notification will be in writing to you the marrying couple.

7.Refund Policy

If you wedding is cancelled within 2 weeks of the booked time and date, then no refund will be given due to short notice.

8.What if I’m seriously ill or unable to officiate at your Ceremony?

Whilst it is very rare, occasionally your celebrant may become ill, have an accident or have some other problem that means they are unable to meet their commitment to do your wedding. After all celebrants are human too. In such circumstances, your celebrant will usually ensure every endeavour is be made to find a replacement celebrant.
