Loads of juicy celebrant info here!

Highlights of working with Married by Marisa:

Specialising in Elopements and Micro- weddings.

Post Covid World – people are opting for more intimate ceremonies with either just their best friends as witnesses and/or close family members.

Pluses:  thousands of dollars are saved on the costs of a big wedding and then you go home and say, “we’re married” – hint: wait for the photos and then announce  it….don’t worry they’ll get over it and then want to celebrate with you and have a big party. At the same time, it doesn’t have to be a secret. Marisa is here to alleviate any worries and reassure you.

Elopements are up to 20  people.  Micro-weddings are up to 50 people. Contact Marisa to find out more.

  • Marisa also has exclusive access to beautiful private properties where couples have wonderfully intimate ceremonies and get the location all to themselves. These properties are not advertised, only Marisa has access, just for you.
  • Beautiful intimate and personalised ceremonies with still the gorgeous dress and suit or whatever suits your fancy.
  • Your own personal dinner in a private dinner room with your besties, parents or similar with personal catering.
  • Plus accommodation. In the Blackwood Valley & Southern Forrest’s Region (South West & Great Southern) Marisa has access to all of this at her finger tips and connects all the dots for you.
  • Access to all local vendors: makeup/hair, florals (one off bridal bouquets), photographer and caterer (don’t forget the cake! Marisa’s got that covered too! – small, big or even just two gorgeous cupcakes each!) plus the best locally produced wine!

Bonus! If you book Marisa’s extra assistance package including all the above, Marisa will gift you her very special hamper full of lots of locally produced goodies. Yes, you heard that right, Marisa will gift you a hamper. Contact Marisa for more info regarding all inclusive elopement packages. 

What you’ll get with Marisa:

  • The personalised ceremony. Marisa will meet with you for your ‘get to know each other’ chat, then use the fun stories and personal details she’s learned to write you a custom wedding ceremony.
  • Did you know that you don’t have to have a story and you don’t have to have personal vows? You can just do the legal vows, which is one of the legal requirements.
  • Did you know that rings are a tradition and not compulsory either? Some people, even exchange such things as horse bridles, necklaces, instead of rings or both!
  • Did you know you can include choose a ritual in your ceremony? such as:
  1. Earth “blending family ritual”, for example, combine into a jar of sand at the beach or the countryside earth where you get married (including sparklies for the kids to add into the jar). This is the clincher; dad or mum seal the deal with closing the lid, very tightly!
  2. If you are getting married on your own property, you can even plant a tree or a plant that you love.
  3. Handfasting: Marisa provides beautiful ribbons or ropes (all included in her price) to “tie the infinity knot forever”, how apt!
  4. Cultural Heritage ceremonies.  Marisa supports multiculturalism and welcomes any cultural aspect you’d like to incorporate into your special day.  Think out of the box, such as a Laith (Hawaiian) ceremony or drinking Japanese Sake out of traditional wooden cups. The options are endless.
  5. In 2017 Australians spoke in their millions and they voted overwhelmingly yes for marriage equality. They voted yes for fairness, yes for commitment, yes for love. Let’s bring that on. Marisa is here for everyone.
  6. For a small fee, Marisa can organise all the wedding suppliers, including accommodation for you for your elopement, especially, in her local regions of the South West & Great Southern.
  7. Marisa will eliminate stress and guide you through the process every step of the way.
  8. Spring, Autumn, Winter & Summer, rain, hail or shine, Marisa is here for you.
  • The option for a song. With a background in performance, Marisa can offer a service many other celebrants can’t: a romantic love song of your choice performed live – if you wish, that is. Marisa can also assist you with sharing ideas for songs.
