I LOVE CONDUCTING WEDDINGS FOR OUTDOORSY COUPLES WHO SEE NATURE AS A CANVAS FOR THEIR CREATIVITY AND STYLE.

My name is Charlotte May and I am your new Albury/Wodonga marriage celebrant. The Riverina area has so many beautiful beaches, waterways, parks and outdoor venues that can be turned into a wedding wonderland to share with family and friends.  Let’s not even forget your own backyard!

From the moment we have our first chat I’ll be there for you both, guiding you, capturing every detail and vibe that will make your wedding amazing – all the way to the cheers you will get when I present you to your family and friends as a married couple.

Through 15 years experience, I have developed a relaxed and methodical approach to weddings which allows my couples to sit back and enjoy the process. I have found that many couples like to have involvement in creating their wedding ceremony.  Therefore, I have designed a step-by-step Wedding Ceremony Guide to allow them to create an entire draft ceremony, right up to “I now pronounce you husband and wife”.  Of course, I am happy to design the whole ceremony if you wish.

What I believe to be the most important aspect of your wedding is to have those persons near and dear to you present to share your day. The rest is a bonus.  They may not remember the flowers or table settings, but they will remember how happy and amazing that the couple will look as they say their vows and walk back down the aisle.

While the act of exchanging vows is very serious, there is no reason why we cannot enjoy the experience as well. Leave it to me to plan for all the contingencies to ensure that you have minimal stress and maximum fun.

ABOUT ME

It all started when I had a side hustle offering white dove releases for weddings and funerals. After attending so many weddings I decided to become a celebrant myself. That was 15 years ago.

Being a celebrant is such a rewarding, fun and creative occupation. Just as no two couples are the same, no two weddings are the same. I believe in celebrating you, in your style, with your humour at the forefront. From small elopements to themed spectacular celebrations, I can cater for every type of wedding. I do everything possible to guide you to ensure that you have less stress and more fun in the entire ceremony process.

I moved to Albury last year from the Gold Coast. It has been interesting investigating the local venues and suppliers. It also allows me to get more involved in this vibrant and welcoming community.

Whilst I cover Albury and the surrounding areas, I will go anywhere for love!

WHAT DO I OFFER MY LOVELY COUPLES?

  • I have developed a “Guide to Developing your Ceremony” for my couples. These days many couples like to have input into every element of their wedding ceremony but do not know where to start. This Guide will lead you through the various phases of the ceremony from start to finish.  This will enable you to craft your own, personalized ceremony, complete with vows. We can make any necessary tweeks afterwards. Alternatively, I can prepare it all for you.
  • My fees are inclusive. You will know exactly what your wedding ceremony will cost – another stress eliminated, especially if you have a budget in mind!
  • You could have your favourite friend or relative conduct your ceremony instead – if that interests you.
  • All of my ideas, resources and tips that I have gained through my 15 years of experience will be at your disposal.
  • If you have a theme or unusual ceremony location in mind – all the more fun! My base is now Albury, NSW but I will travel anywhere for love. Should you wish to get married in an exotic location or other part of Australia that can certainly be negotiated (Who doesn’t love a short overseas vacation?)

WHAT NEXT??

  • You complete the “Contact” form or just pick up the phone and call. We will have a brief chat regarding your wedding plans.
  • We meet in a quiet location (your home, coffee shop, park, etc) so that I can better understand your needs and you can decide if we are a good fit.
  • Should you wish to use my services you will complete the required government form “Notice of Intended Marriage” which needs to be completed 30 days before the actual wedding. We then get started making your wedding the one which is talked about, not the one that people endure, waiting for the reception to begin!

We were so thrilled with our wedding.  Charlotte made it so easy to plan everything with her relaxed and positive attitude to our demands.  Our friends could not believe how beautiful the ceremony was in the beautiful gardens.

Nick and Candice

Everything went perfectly on the day.  I think the rehearsal with all of my family the Friday night before really helped.

Vanessa and Simon

We could not believe how easy it was to prepare a ceremony and how well everything worked out on the day.  We were so happy with Charlotte’s caring and professional attitude.
