Marriage Ceremonies:

I specialise in modern, fun and engaging ceremonies for everyone equally.

Love is love! LGBTQI+ friendly since forever.

Lets face it, any authorised celebrant can complete paperwork and set up a PA, but as my couple like to say…it is the ‘Vic Factor’ that sets me a part from the rest. The ‘Vic Factor’ includes:

  • My bubbly, positive presence on your big day- I am a very social person and my aim is to always make sure everyone feels happy and well looked after.
  • My relaxed, intuitive and professional manner means that I make your people feel engaged and are in the moment with you. As I start to speak I see everyone sit back and get comfortable, knowing it is going to be an enjoyable and authentic ceremony.
  • A level of understanding that can only come from over 6 years of making married people #nodoovers .
  • This experience means that I take everything in my stride, working with your suppliers to make sure everything runs smoothly and seamlessly, so you don’t have to worry or wonder. I know the co-ordinators, understand the timelines and focus on what is important for you on your day.
  • My style- I am happy to say that if for some strange reason I do not have something that suits your style and colour scheme I am happy to go dress shopping- That is just the kind of girl I am and the level of service I like to offer (Ok I may like shopping a little bit ).
  • I will be well groomed, in fashion and dressed to suit your colours and ceremony style- We have chats about what you would like me to wear at our pre-ceremony meeting.
  • At the end of the day I fully understand that it is not about me, what I wear and what I say. It is your day and how you feel is the most important thing.

I also include the following:

  • the first casual chat and all other face-to-face meetings
  • unlimited email/phone consultation and support
  • preparation and lodgement of all legal documentation including the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM), marriage certificates, register, declaration and associated costs
  • creation of your personalised ceremony drawing from a wide selection of references. Your ceremony can be tailored to include the participation of friends or family members, your own written vows, unity rituals etc.
  • use of a professional Mipro 303 portable PA (60 Watts RMS), with headset microphone, hand-held wireless microphone, MP3 (iPod/iPad etc.) input for playing recorded music during your ceremony
  • site visit or rehearsal at your ceremony location
  • travel costs within 50kms of my office at Woodcroft, SA (I am happy to travel further – please contact me about the extra travel fee)
  • on the day of the wedding ceremony, I  will be available onsite at least 45 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
  • a table and chairs for signing of the marriage certificates and register (if required)
  • the use of my decorative signing pen

Renewal Of Vows

This ceremony is for any loving couple that wish to celebrate renewing their marriage vows in a unique and personal ceremony. Often these ceremonies are associated with a special wedding anniversary, but this ceremony is appropriate for couples at any stage of marriage.

It is sometimes particularly relevant to those who have been through a period which has put a strain on their relationship, but who wish to celebrate their renewed commitment to each other.

Or maybe you were not able to have the ceremony of your choice on your wedding day.

Any married couple, of any age, and married for any length of time, can arrange a Renewal of Marriage Vows Ceremony. I will put your ceremony together with you both, after meeting and chatting with you! Just as no two married couples are the same, no two ceremonies to renew marriage vows will ever be the same…. You could even keep it a surprise?

Any of your loved ones can take part in your ceremony – your children, family or friends. You may want to ask two people to  witness the signing of the Certificate of the event. These ceremonies have no legal effect, but you will be creating a unique event that you and all your guests will remember for many years to come…what a wonderful reason to get everyone together and have a party.

I  would love to be a part of your special day so please feel free to contact me on my mobile 0422 050 041 or by email at hello@vickyflanegan.com.au. I look forward to hearing from you.
