The Whole Shebang
For a damn fine wedding where the sky is the limit! We'll work together to create a wedding that it is "totally you". We'll tell your tale, celebrate your love with your nearest and dearest and scream it from the rooftops!
Your ceremony can be as traditional or as off-beat as you wish. Exchange rings or tequila shots - whatever you like, I'll sort you out.
I'll bring my PA system - we can turn it up to 11!
Elopements (ditch the guests)
So you love the idea of a beautiful wedding but you're not too keen on being in the spotlight or the thought of providing tons of guests with food, booze and entertainment is giving you crazy anxiety (and let's be honest, it can be fucking expensive!), all you want to do is just run away... why not elope?
Keep your day intensely personal with a short, sweet but intimate ceremony. No microphone, no stressing over chasing dozens of RSVPs - it’s only the two of you, a couple of witnesses and a Whole Lotta Love - it’s all you need.
Have an exotic destination in mind? Take me with you!
Bare Bones (Legals Only)
Want to just scrap the ceremony and just sign the papers? Right on!
Perform the nuptials 'registry-style' - literally just 3 minutes of the minimum legal words and several signatures. No fluffing about.
Ask about Bare Bones mini photography packages!
Note on availability:
Bare Bones packages are not available Friday - Sunday afternoons during peak season (before midday or after 7pm only)
So, how do we do this thing?
We can chat via Skype, over the phone or meet face-to-face to get to know each other before you book.
If you love my vibe and decide to lock me in, I’ll send you an invoice as well as a Jac the Hitcher Information Pack.
Next, we'll meet up for a coffee/wine/Bloody Mary and sign a little legal paperwork together. You'll need to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage form (NOIM) and provide supporting ID.
Once we’re done with the business side of things, you can start filling me in on your story and we'll throw around ideas for your ceremony.
Having a Bare Bones Ceremony? We'll complete the legal paperwork together, then skip straight to step 6! BAM! Hitched!
You'll have unlimited communication with me via phone, email and Skype, so I can really know your love story and together we'll plan your shin-dig. You can even take the time to fill out a questionnaire (separately) so I can get to the juicy details and really understand your relationship.
Writing your own vows? No sweat! I can help you with that too.
Once I've learnt your story, I'll write your unique, personalised and memorable ceremony which you will totally love!
Why not keep the ceremony a surprise on the day - trust me, it’ll be worth it!
5. More Paperwork
Later, as close to the ceremony as possible and before the marriage takes place, we’ll meet up again to sign a Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage.
After that, we’ll have a good run through of the ceremony so you’re ready to rock and roll.
6. Get Hitched
Say the words, sign the papers...'til death do you part!
While you jet off on your honeymoon or perhaps face one hell of a hangover, I will complete all your legal documents - signed, sealed and delivered to the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.
Can you dig it? Let's get the ball rollin'…
