Costs Involved

Planning a wedding can be a little stressful, so organising your budget early on can help to alleviate some of the pressure. Start with a list of elements of your wedding that are really important to you. Is having a videographer for the entire day a non-negotiable? A three-course meal and a grazing table? Get in touch with providers and ask for their price lists or a quote, or let them know how much you’re willing to allocate for their services and what they could provide for that cost.

In regards to weddings, checking availability should be your first point of call – if the photographer you had your heart set on is booked out on the date of your wedding, ascertaining that information early on gives you more time to find someone else who fits your style.

Finding a celebrant who you feel confident will perform your wedding ceremony exactly as you envisage is paramount. But, they should fit within your budget too! Be sure to inquire, receive quotes and have a chat a few before making your decision.

Unlike other states and territories, Tasmania doesn’t allow registry weddings (that is, a basic legal ceremony performed at a government office). Keep in mind that registry weddings in other states cost between $450 – $600 in 2023.

If you would rather have a dedicated celebrant create a beautiful, unique ceremony for you and guide you through the marriage process, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
