Covid Safe Weddings

Covid safe weddings sign

As with all businesses operating under the current COVID-19 climate, it is more important than ever to adhere to current Government Restrictions, to ensure your wedding is Covid safe.

Please ensure you check the current COVID-19 Restrictions when planning your wedding day, to help keep everyone stay safe and ensure your ceremony runs as smoothly as possible.

I am fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and have completed infection prevention and control training.

Below are the COVID-19 safe practices I will be implementing on your wedding day, to help minimise risk of community transmission, and to ensure the safety of our lives and those we love.

If your ceremony is being held at a registered venue, I will liaise with the venue’s COVID-19 Marshall to discuss and ensure I adhere to their independant COVID-19 safe practices.

For contact tracing purposes at small weddings in a public space, all ceremony attendees will be required to check in using the QR code I will be providing on the day.

For larger weddings at a registered venue, the venue staff will take responsibility for keeping a record of all attendees and their vaccination status.


I have been a fully vaccinated vendor since June 2021, and, in line with the current Victorian Public Health Order, all guests, vendors and attendees at your wedding venue (aged 16 years and over) are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and must provide a valid proof of vaccination to be permitted onto the premises (unless they have a valid medical exemption) and must also check-in via QR code upon entry.

I will be requesting the same for any smaller, self-managed ceremonies and will provide a QR code for your event.

I will ensure all surfaces are cleaned and sanitised, prior to the commencement of every ceremony.

This relates to wiping down and disinfecting the signing table, registry folder, pens, microphones, and PA System connection cords + adaptors.


My service includes a wireless microphone as standard for couples to recite their vows, and for guests who have been asked to perform a reading.

This microphone is sanitised prior to every ceremony using specialised disinfectant and antibacterial wipes, and then again at the end of the event.

I will be using my own microphone headset for the duration of the ceremony.


To ensure the wellbeing of every attendee at your wedding, please consider sending a group message in the lead up to your day. Remind guests of the importance of getting vaccinated, staying home and getting tested if they are feeling unwell, or if they have any of the flu-like COVID-19 symptoms.

Live streams of weddings are now possible through the wonders of technology, (ask me for recommendations of fantastic providers!) so any unwell guests can still enjoy the event from the safety of their home!

The following symptoms would be considered signs of being unwell;

Mild symptoms: fever; dry cough; tiredness

Less common symptoms: aches + pains; sore throat; diarrhoea; conjunctivitis; headache; loss of taste or smell; a rash on skin; or discolouration of fingers or toes

Serious symptoms: difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; chest pain or pressure; loss of speech or movement.

Likewise, in the event that I myself am feeling unwell, I will get tested immediately and will self isolate  until I have received a negative result.
Please be reassured that if I am unable to attend your wedding due to needing to self isolate, I have a network of highly professional and super lovely celebrant colleagues that I can call on to replace me on the day.

This pandemic has demonstrated that no one is safe until everyone is safe. If we all work together to adhere to Government Health guidelines, we can ensure the safety of our lives and the lives of those we love.
