HELLO!

I’m Maria Temelkos

I’m a thrill-seeking Commonwealth Registered Civil Celebrant living on the Gold Coast and I WANT to marry YOU!… Your ceremony, your way.

I don’t think inside the box, and I don’t think outside the box…..as a matter of fact I don’t know where the box is! I am blessed with a funny gene that makes me live and enjoy life to the fullest and I love to create marriage ceremonies where my ultimate focus is on ensuring you have the most wonderful and personalised experience on your special day. I am here to help ensure your ceremony is magical, unique and memorable too. I love to bring a young, fun, and relaxed (yet professional) vibe to your day!

Fun Weddings

Most Couples I meet are all about making their wedding ceremony fun by spicing things up a little. I can get the party started sooner rather than later with some out-of-the-ordinary inclusions to your ceremony. Be warned, it takes a courageous celebrant to pull them off and that celebrant is MEEEE! …….Let’s Hop To it!

Wedding Traditions

After something more traditional? DONE!

Prefer a modern wedding ceremony? YASSS!
LET’S DO IT!

Would you like to incorporate some endearing or silly rituals? ABSOLUTELY!

Want to include some kick-ass quotes or readings from your favorite Movie/Tv Show? SWEET!

There are NO rules!, Whatever it is you envision for your ceremony, we can make happen.

Marriage Legal Information

To be married in Australia you need to be 18 years old, or older, not already married, consenting and willing to marry & not in a prohibited relationship. if you can meet those conditions, and can give me more than one month’s notice then you can be married in Australia, regardless of gender, religion, country of origin, ethnicity, citizenship, or residential status.

Sound Equipment/PA System

I believe that your marriage ceremony and vows are worth being heard, and heard clearly, so I have Sennheiser and Bose sound equipment, with handheld Sennheiser microphones, so the entire crowd can clearly hear everything. Your music, whether it’s live or off a device, can also be played through my PA system. The sound system was the most common complaint people had about other celebrants so I invested heavily in this area.

Your videographers can get a line out of my PA system plus I have a wireless receiver for their cameras so they get a clean feed of the audio of the ceremony and vows.

Finances

I ask for a deposit upfront, and the final payment is two weeks prior to the ceremony and/ or event. Payment of your deposit and complettion of the booking form locks and secures the date in to my calendar

Inclusivity

It’s important to me that your wedding is inclusive of all people, genders, sexualities, ethnicity, abilities, pretty much just everyone, and I will do my best to lead that inclusivity.

Wedding Rehearsal

There’s no rule that says you must have a wedding rehearsal. If your wedding is small, with few or no wedding attendants, and does not include any wedding traditions, customs, or special readings, then you can probably get away with not having a formal rehearsal.

Insider Tip- Not a lot of celebrants can be bothered with them. Me, on the other hand. I am a big fan! Rehearsals help calm the nerves and make the photos look so much better because we would have discussed positioning. We will chat about the pros and cons of having one, so you can figure out what’s right for you.

Reviews & Testimonies

The element of our business that I’m most proud of is our testimonies. The fact that after everything someone would take the time and effort to post a Facebook review about my service is forever humbling. If you’re wondering what they look like, my Google page & Facebook Page is a good start.

Am I Available?

If your wedding date is locked in, email me to find out if I’m available. But if you’re still planning things out feel free to ask about available dates or days in certain months. This might be easier on the phone.

How Does This Work?

I’ve got 6 different ways you can invite me to create your               wedding.

1. The celebrant package – the classical package where I’m              your celebrant for your wedding ceremony.

4. The Ceremony & Entertainment & MC Package
    The one with EVERYTHING! – I am your marriage celebrant         but then I continue into the reception as your MC, & your               entertainment.
