Budget Weddings

Nicole is Retiring from Weddings from 30/06/16
but still conducting Namings & Christenings on Sundays only

Marriage Celebrant, Nicole Celeban conducts weddings for all budgets throughout Penrith, Blacktown, Hawkesbury, Macarthur, Western Sydney and Blue Mountains areas. A wedding is more about what you say, do and feel, rather than what you wear, or how many courses you serve at the reception. It's about love and not about impressing people. It's about your love - what it means to you. Long after the champagne bottles have been taken away, and you've polished off the last piece of wedding cake, it's the essence of your ceremony - the words that were spoken, the atmosphere created through them, and the love and joy generated through all the special moments of your ceremony.

You don't have to have a budget of $20 - $50,000, or take out a hefty loan to have a memorable wedding.

All of this money could go a long way towards a substantial deposit for a home. Why not keep your wedding simple, while still keeping it beautiful? You could have an absolutely fabulous ceremony in your own backyard, with your nearest and dearest in attendance! Reception centres can be very expensive, costing anything from $70 to $250 a head.

There are cost-effective alternatives

  • Many excellent restaurants have private rooms available for functions - and can cater for anything from 10 to 100 guests.

  • Have you thought about having a mid-week ceremony?

  • Have you considered a winter wedding? Winter usually has beautiful weather, and you won't have to battle the flies. Your makeup won't melt, and your guests won't faint in the stifling heat. Average temperatures in the middle of the day in the Penrith Valley during the months of June, July and August are usually in the high teens.

  • What about a breakfast wedding?

  • Have you considered a sunrise ceremony at your favourite lookout?

  • Many community centres/neighbourhood centres have beautiful gardens, and you have a wet weather alternative right there. Contact your local council for more information.

  • Many nursing homes have beautiful chapels where they would welcome joyous celebrations.

  • If you have no more than six guests, you are welcome to have your ceremony at the celebrant's private garden at Leonay (near Penrith)- subject to availability. You could then attend your favourite restaurant to celebrate.

A quality wedding ceremony conducted by Nicole may sound expensive, but you will no doubt find that Nicole's services provide excellent value for money, in the context of all the other wedding expenses incurred. Nicole's fee for a wedding ceremony in the Penrith CBD during 2015 is only $595, rising to $650 in 2016.
For a ceremony outside the Penrith area, a travel fee would apply.
