Here is how it went.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][nectar_animated_title heading_tag=”h3″ style=”color-strip-reveal” color=”Accent-Color” text=”Rebecca and Sarah”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/w79A7nXjXzc” align=”center”][vc_video link=”https://vimeo.com/253364374″ align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][fancy-ul icon_type=”standard_dash” color=”Accent-Color” alignment=”left”]

Congrats to everyone who was nominated for being SASSY, We think you all rock and look foward to hosting another SASSY AWARDS in 2018!

 

 

 

So what are the Sassies?

Well, we are glad you asked.

You know as celebrants we get to work with some pretty awesome people, and we don’t often get to tell those people how freakin’ amazing we think they are. So the Sassies was born.

There are two types of Sassies 1) the award the public will vote on and 2) the award that only the Sassy Celebrants will vote on.

How do you get nominated? Well right now we are just asking you, or your fans to tag your business in our nomination posts.
On September 18 we will open up voting for one week allowing the public to vote on their favourite business in all areas from photography to DJ to florist.

Finally after voting has closed and we have tallied up the votes we will have a special awards ceremony presentation on October 5. (More details to come on this)

But, for now, keep calm and nominate your favourite wedding businesses on our facebook page

The Sassy Celebrants difference…

Sassy Celebrants from Sassy Celebrants on Vimeo.

When you book a celebrant make sure they have a back up plan. This weekend I (Sassy Kez) couldn’t perform a ceremony as my son was taken to emergency.

One call out to the Sassy Celebrants team and I had a back up in place and out to meet the couple within minutes.

That’s the Sassy Celebrant difference – we are a team.

We back each other up and no matter which Sassy Celebrant you book, you are getting an amazing, vibrant celebrant who will do their best for you. — with Kim Oakhill – Modern Civil Celebrant, Vows Now – Marriage Celebrant, Kim McCartin Civil Celebrant, Monty King Celebrations, Nell Dark-Jones – Celebrant, Wed By Kez and Married By Timothy.

Let’s face it, planning a wedding is a whole lotta time chasing businesses [and Celebrants] and waiting for emails.

What does Sassy cost?

Gee, planning a wedding is really easy and cheap!
Said No-one… ever

Modern Celebrants

One of the first questions that gets fired at ANY Celebrant, and Sassy Celebrants are no different, is “How much do you cost??!!”

So, you need to know a few things about Sassy Celebrants before we go any further.

Sassy Celebrants do NOT have one fixed cost. We each charge differently and each have different inclusions in our packages.

One Sassy Celebrant might quote one all inclusive price, one might have a base price and then charge extra for use of PA System or signing table.

One thing is certain – all Sassy Celebrants are unique and that includes the price.

Use the below form to contact all the Sassy Celebrants about your ceremony and you’ll get different responses from all the available celebrants outlining their cost and service.

Sassy Celebrants unique, modern celebrants – not one size fits all.
