HELLO & WELCOME
Kellie Eddy - Civil Celebrant
LOOKING FOR A VIBRANT, FUN CELEBRANT?
Look no further, you've found me
Hi, I'm Kellie.
I grew up on a dairy farm in Yinnar and now live in Traralgon with my family.
I LOVE weddings and knew from a young age that I wanted to be involved in this industry. Being a celebrant is amazing, it combines my love of weddings, my love for meeting new people and creating new friendships, my love of love, and of course my love for talking. The most rewarding part of my job is getting to know my couples and understanding their dynamic, so together we can create a ceremony that is a true personal reflection of their love story. Oh and the fact that I get to make new friends and have a bloody good time along the way!
1. Get in touch if you'd like me to be part of your special day. My calendar fills up quickly, sometimes up to two years in advance.
2. Let's meet up so we can get to know each other and suss out the vibe you want to create.
3. Together, we create a unique ceremony to reflect you as a couple. You can have as much or as little input as you like in this process.
4. We’ll complete a Notice of Intended Marriage at least one month before your ceremony date.
5. We rock a kick arse ceremony on your wedding day, full of love, laughter and probably even some tears.
6. I take care of the paperwork to ensure you are legally married.
7. You live happily ever after as a married couple and I post some photos and we all share stories of your awesome wedding day for years to come.
What is your role as a celebrant?
First and foremost, my role is to get you hitched! I create your ideal ceremony with as little or as much input from you as you desire.
It's my job to help set the vibe for the day by helping you and your guests to relax and to be yourselves.
Lastly, I lodge all the legal paperwork to ensure your marriage is registered with Births, Deaths and Marriages.
Do I have to write my own vows?
Absolutely not! There are legal vows which must be included. You could have the legals only, something more traditional, or go nuts and write your own.
How long does the ceremony take?
Your ceremony should take as long as it takes. Everyone’s different, so, your ceremony, your call. As a rough guide, most of my ceremonies are typically between 15-30 minutes.
What do I need on the day to make it legal?
In order to make your wedding legal in the eyes of the law, you need:
A qualified and currently registered celebrant.
You and your partner (both parties must be legally single). And two witnesses who are over the age of 18, that's it!
Your wedding day can be as simple or as meticulously planned as you desire. But those are the bare bones of it.
Can we have a rehearsal?
The short answer is yes, if you must! lol
I'm sure you have attended your share of weddings to know what goes on. Therefore, I don't tend to do many rehearsals these days. But if you would like a rehearsal to calm your nerves, we can discuss this. At the end of the day, I work for you.
Will you travel for our wedding?
HELL YES! I love a good location wedding.
What's your cost?
Each wedding is different, so depending on your circumstances, what type of ceremony you are after, your location, the date etc - I will give you a quote at the time of enquiry.
Your wedding should be the most fabulous day of your life. Let me take care of all the logistics, so you can relax and enjoy the day with your loved ones.
LEGALS ONLY SERVICE
If you're not a fan of being the centre of attention and you don't want all the bells and whistles of a full wedding ceremony, then let's roll with this option. We can create a short and sweet ceremony - similar to a registry style marriage.
STANDARD WEDDING PACKAGE
This is where the magic happens, where our friendship begins. So, unlimited contact with me in person or via text, email, Skype, FaceTime etc. It's your call, we can go and have a drink at the pub or you can come to me, snuggle up on my couch and just chat. Together, we create a tailored ceremony perfectly suited to you as a couple. The most common duration for a ceremony of this type is 15-30 minutes.
Let me take some of the stress out of your wedding day by working with you to create a fun and relaxing ceremony perfectly reflective of you and your partner.
“All you need is love, love is all you need”
DEVOTED TO SATISFACTION
We all like to know what someone is really like before we book them. So before you invite me into your lives, into your home and to share in your special day with your family and friends, have a read below. These are some of the testimonials from my past lovers.
Kellie, Steve and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing ceremony you performed. We were just thrilled with how smooth everything went and how professional you were to work with. From our first meeting, till the end you were these to assist us along the way.
MR & MRS HALL
We had Kellie as our celebrant and she was amazing. She has a relaxed but professional style and works with you to create a day that is perfect for you and your partner. She took the time to write us a beautiful ceremony that was unique to us and brought an awesome energy to our day. Just what we were looking for! Couldn't reccommend her enough.
MR & MRS SNELL
Firstly, I would like to thank Kellie for the way she handled our wedding. We had a very difficult time finding a celebrant who could perform our ceremony at such short notice. Kellie accommodated our needs with such ease. We've had many compliments from our guests on the day, about the ceremony Kellie created for us. We always wanted a casual, non religious wedding and Kellie ticked all the boxes. She made our big day as personal and intimate as we had hoped it to be.
Kellie is a wonderful and very approachable Celebrant who sincerely wants your day to be special.
MR & MRS VAN DIJK
When we first began our search for a celebrant, we met up with a new celebrant by the name of Kellie Eddy. By that stage, we had met with a few more experienced celebrants but found that we just didn’t gel with them. As soon as we met Kel, we felt like we had found “the one”. We are so glad we took a chance and chose you to be our celebrant. And although nothing really seemed to go our way on the day, Kellie just rolled with the punches and got the job done like a true professional.
Thank you, Kel!
MR & MRS WRIGHT xx
Kel, Thank you so much for everything, Saturday was perfect and you played a huge part in that. Everyone mentioned the ceremony was just us all round and we wouldn't change a thing. If you need a reference for future weddings hit us up. Thanks again for everything.
MR & MRS TUNKS
Many parts of planning a wedding can be super stressful, finding the right venue, photographer and dress just to name a few. But finding the right person to help you with the most important part of your big day, the ceremony can seem easy once booked. It all comes down to how they help you enter the next chapter of your life. Kellie Eddy is so much more than just a celebrant! Kellie helped us every step of the way and went above and beyond to make sure our day was as perfect as possible. From being only a txt away answering any questions little or big, to offering her own time if we needed a hand setting up. She even came to the rescue with fake tan remover lol.
This woman is the friendliest, passionate pocket rocket we've ever met and we are so grateful to have found her to share our special day! We love you Kel, thank you from the bottom of our hearts you absolutely nailed what we were after and then some. Did I also mention this kick ass lady was also our amazing wedding singer and part of the AWESOME band small mercies?! What can't she do??
We can’t recommend Kellie enough and I'm sure all our guests would say the same. We didn’t just find an amazing celebrant we also gained a friend. We can’t wait to see what the future has instore for you, but we just know you’re going to kill it!
MR & MRS HEENAN
I don’t even know how to begin to thank Kellie for creating our dream ceremony. As soon as I got in touch with Kellie, I knew she was the celebrant for us! Her genuine interest in our story as a couple and her beautiful, authentic energy were so evident from the moment we spoke. Kellie worked with us and added in so many special and unique details that we wanted to include. My partner had two children and we wanted them to be a special part of the process. She was open to all of our ideas — even the ones that were a little crazy! She really brought our ceremony to life in a way that was truly representative of us. It was both fun and funny, and exactly what we wanted. I think my dad said it best in a text a couple of days later. “I heard more than one say it was the best wedding ever. The ceremony was a fantastic combination of solemn, sincere, lighthearted and audience participation. Fabulous. I needed more than one tissue.” I cannot recommend Kellie’s services highly enough. Thank you, Kellie! xo
