The cost of a marriage celebrant can range between $350 and increase to a high of $1,500. A civil celebrant is similar to marriage celebrant who also can conduct non-religious marriage, funeral, naming and commitment ceremonies. Civil celebrant fees can vary between $350 and $1,500.
Yes. A Celebrant Wedding Ceremony is not a legally binding ceremony. It is about celebrating your love and relationship in a way that is special to you. If you wish to confirm your commitment to each other without legal ties, then that's not a problem.
