Batemans Bay Wedding Celebrant Hilary Eade

As your registered wedding celebrant, it is my wish you have the wedding ceremony of your dreams, whether you dreamt of getting married on the beach or in a beautiful parkland. There are many gorgeous beaches and parks in Batemans Bay and along the South Coast of New South Wales, ideal for the perfect wedding ceremony.

Wedding Ceremony on the Beaches of Batemans BayI have performed many various types of ceremonies, including:

  • Wedding ceremonies
  • Renewal of wedding vows
  • Commitment ceremonies
  • Naming ceremony

I perform ceremonies from Milton to Merimbula – Batemans Bay to Canberra.

You can choose the best wedding package to suit your requirements. You might like to have a small legals only ceremony or a beautiful ceremony written especially for your dream wedding.

I can help provide you with support and guidance for your wedding celebration!

As a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrant (AFCC) they provide us with the use of many varied resources and Professional Indemnity and Broadform Liability Insurance.

​​​​I offer a professional and friendly service and only book one wedding a day to ensure my undivided attention to every detail.

Wedding Ceremony in Batemans BayI provide a battery-operated PA for music and voice over, and with my full package I provide a signing Table with 2 chairs with table linen.

When planning your wedding, remember your guests, the ease of access to the venue and the unpredictability of the weather. To ensure that you and your guests have a great time remember to arrange a weather alternative venue.

If you decide that I am the marriage celebrant for you, you can be assured that I will take care of all the required legal aspects to ensure you are married on the day.

My dates do book out in advance – so contact me to see if I am available on your chosen wedding date.

Booking Stages

A Phone Conversation or Email…

We’ll chat about your wedding plans, expectations, your chosen date for your ceremony, package choices, fees and what documents you will require and the legal processes.

We’ll also organise a time and place to meet. The first meeting can be at a café, bar, park or at your home – wherever works best for you.


White Wedding on the Beach

Our First Meeting…

At our first face-to-face meeting you can tell me more about yourselves as a couple and any thoughts or plans you have for your wedding day. I’ll give you some ideas on how we can work together, some information on the legal aspects of getting married and answer any and all of your questions.

It’s an opportunity for you to get to know me, I get to know you, and see if we click.

Then when you are ready we can fill out a NOIM (Notice of intent to Marry) the start of your legal process.

It is a good idea to bring to the meeting your documents needed when filling out the NOIM.

Many of my couples live some distance away and this can also be done via email.

Contact me now to arrange your first meeting.

Planning, Designing and Creating…

From here, I will write & email a draft ceremony. Once you have had a read of your draft ceremony, you can let me know what you like, what you want changed, added or removed – then we’ll go from there. Depending on what suits you, we might meet up again to talk it through or we might go back and forth on email for a bit – whatever works for you.


I like to meet at the venue the day before the wedding, to meet your bridal party, sign the final declarations, run through your ceremony, timing, music, placement, etc. to ensure that your ceremony will run smoothly and be exactly what you hope for.

The Big Day your Wedding Ceremony

By this time, we are all excited! I’m there early to ensure everything goes smoothly, to make sure everyone is relaxed, and to make your ceremony amazing!

Enjoy every moment with your friends and family and celebrate with a ceremony that is authentically you.
