Kate Foster - Marriage Celebrant
I embarked on my journey as a marriage celebrant in 2012 and over the years I have had the pleasure of creating life changing moments for so many amazing couples. My greatest pleasure is taking the time to get to know my bride and groom, hearing your story and getting an insight into what makes you the great team that you are. I love using this information to create a unique and meaningful ceremony that perfectly reflects your personal journey and is uniquely yours!
I approach my work with professionalism, warmth, enthusiasm, fun and respect and I welcome the opportunity to incorporate creative, spiritual or religious elements into your ceremony. I will carefully walk you through every step of the process, ensuring that all legalities are met and logistics considered so that you can enjoy a stress-free and memorable wedding day.
I offer a competitive fee which includes unlimited email and phone correspondence, two face to face meetings and a rehearsal on site if required. I provide a battery-operated PA system with two microphones (this also plays recorded music from a device) and a signing table with white cloth and two white folding chairs.
I am happy to chat at any time to see if I am the right fit for you so please don’t hesitate to call!
“We couldn't be happier with our decision to have Kate be our celebrant on our special day. From the moment we met her and saw her genuine warmth and interest in our story we knew she was the right celebrant for us. Kate guided us through the formal wedding process, handling all paperwork and explaining each step. Communication through emails, messages and over the phone was super easy. She listened carefully to our story and created the most beautiful wedding ceremony, incorporating all the elements that were most important to us. She helped us both feel at ease during the ceremony with a few laughs and a great rapport with our guests. In the end it felt like we were being married by a friend - thank you so much Kate for helping make our wedding day so perfect!” – Jenny & Juan
“Wow! Kate is a pro! Throughout the entire process of preparation for the day to the moment she announced us as husband and wife, she guided us the entire way. A huge part of the feel of our ceremony can be attributed to Kate. She was warm and welcoming, relaxed yet professional and truly gave our ceremony a very intimate and personal touch. I had multiple guests say to me that night that she was by far the best celebrant they've seen! Kudos Kate! Thanks for everything!” – Kim & Josh
“Having Kate be a part of our wedding was truly a gift. The three of us bonded instantly and the relationship only blossomed from that point on. Kate made us feel so special through the entire journey, and although this can be a nerve-racking experience and completely unfamiliar at times, Kate was spectacular at making us both feel relaxed and ready. Kate listened to us, smiled and laughed and even shed some happy tears with us. It was all more than we could have ever asked for. We are so thankful that we found you Kate. Many thanks, to the moon and back.” - Kelsey & Adam
“Kate was a breath of fresh air to our wedding day, she was unflappable and kept a calm about her which certainly helped me keep calm. Kate is witty and gets the crowd laughing in a relaxed and informal way. She listens to your story and embraces how you envisage your special day. Our wedding was a surprise so Kate was very flexible which was really helpful in pulling off the surprise wedding. I am so glad to have Kate share our special day with us.” - Rebekah and Brad
