Gold Coast Marriage Celebrants
Looking for a Gold Coast marriage celebrant? From the golden Queensland beaches of Surfers Paradise to the scenic hinterland of Tamborine Mountain, there's plenty of beautiful places to get married on the Gold Coast and an even bigger choice of marriage celebrants. The question is, which celebrant is the perfect one for you?
Civil celebrants on the Gold Coast perform a wide range of wedding ceremonies and elopements and often specialise in one type or another. Celebrants who deliver short & sweet wedding ceremonies offer registry style or legals only packages. Some marriage celebrants exclusively offer the full services of a personalised wedding that has been written from scratch.
Fees for marriage celebrants on the Gold Coast range from $400 - $1,800+ depending on the type of wedding ceremony you choose. It stands to reason that ceremonies written specifically for your wedding, and that include a beautiful telling of your love story so far will cost more than the likes of a legals only wedding which recites the bare minimum wording to get you hitched.
Aside from choosing a marriage celebrant who delivers the type of wedding ceremony you want, the other important variable to consider in picking someone to officiate your wedding is the vibe they'll bring to the big moment. Do you want a celebrant who's fun and outgoing, warm and welcoming, or is it mostly important that the vibe is kept low key and your nerves kept calm?
Catering to all of the above options, here are the most recommended marriage celebrants on the Gold Coast in Queensland.
