Phil here
your Blue Mountains marriage celebrant

providing elopement style weddings in the Blue Mountains

Planning to marry in the Blue Mountains?  Not sure what to do next? 

To make the most of the Blue Mountains experience, you really need a celebrant who lives here and can provide guidance through the process of selecting vendors, locations and best time of year.  Please read on

G’day, the Blue Mountains is my home and the only place where I work conducting nothing but weddings.  Maybe you want a wedding at a lookout only known to the locals.  I specialise in weddings in the Blue Mountains at lookouts, hidden in the bush, lakeside, at larger venues or anywhere else that may suit your wish list.  I know them all.  Do you want a small elopment style wedding?  If so let me show you how you can have a wedding without the stress and expense of an overpriced venue wedding.  I can also arrange a photographer and witnesses if you want privacy. 

Having conducted hundreds of weddings for couples wanting to marry in the peace and tranquility of the Blue Mountains, I have also been lucky enough to conduct weddings for many abseilers, rock climbers and bush walkers wanting a wedding in a location where they feel at home.

My passions are Italian opera, classical music, British comedy, recreational maths and some charity work on the side. 

 

Let’s make it super easy for you

Call or text me on 0418 654 525,  email happydaycelebrant@gmail.com or simply complete the enquiry form at the bottom of this page so I can advise availability on the day you have chosen.  My simple price guide is found below.  I only ever conduct one wedding on any day so I can focus on you alone on your special day.

With a no obligation chat to establish you have all the documents required so you can legally marry, we then arrange to sign the Notice of Intended Marriage Form (NOIM) which I provide.  The document must be in my hands at least one calendar month before the wedding date duly signed and witnessed.  We then hold a face to face meeting, or a zoom or whatsapp meeting if that suits you better, to write the ceremony that suits your exact personalities.    After that …. all you have to do is remember to turn up on the day …. it’s really that easy.

We will take the hassle out of getting an Official Marriage Certificate from the Office of Births Deaths and Marriages because for weddings conducted within New South Wales, I can source the certificate for you.  Easy

Pricing Options

Micro Weddings & Elopements

I specialise in Blue Mountains weddings at lookouts, in your backyard or at smaller venues, on a boardwalk by a lake or at your favourite Air BNB.  This keeps the entire day less stressful, more family and friend oriented, and involves a lot less froth and bubble – but you will still end up just as legally married as the next couple

The $580 fee includes an initial obligation free meeting with all legal documentation looked after and then your customised ceremony, lodgement with NSW BDM and I can even order the official certificate if you require for $75 (being cost +$10). For lookouts, I provide a portable, standing, signing table and a small public address system if required (but we have to keep the volume down so we don’t disturb the kookaburras).

A surcharge of $100 will apply when both parties live overseas and need the wedding conducted within a short lead time.  There is lots of extra work involved in such cases however I am happy to be of service.

Larger Venue Weddings

With hundreds of happy, white weddings conducted already here in the Blue Mountains, I am happy to be your celebrant at a major venue – it will simply cost a bit more.  A venue wedding will cost $740, this includes, in addition to the elopement style wedding provisions, supply of a large public address system customised to your venue with wireless microphone to suit up to 200 guests.

I also will play your processional music and your recessional music for you through my PA system – so your guests can relax and enjoy themselves.  You simply supply me with a legally downloaded mp3 file of your choice of music.

If you require an onsite rehearsal then I charge an extra $100.   I will also arrive 90 minutes before the scheduled start to welcome guests and ensure the PA system is set perfectly for that location.   There are no other hidden costs – that’s it.
