celebrant fees for mothers or fathers day ceremonies

celebrant fees for mothers or fathers day ceremonies Pixabay 755989

Every civil celebrant sets their own fees and charges based on their time and expenses in providing a ceremony.  The fee includes a component for running a professional celebrancy private practice that is not subsidised by the government or a church.

For Special Ceremonies, most celebrants will have a schedule of fees or different ceremony packages priced according to the different options included.

This is because 90% of the effort in creating a great ceremony is in the preparation. And different families may have different needs. Cost does not have to be prohibitive, especially if the ceremony is your combined gift instead of individual ones !

That’s why the CCN’s motto is . . . Let the celebration be your gift
