COVID 19 Information

The COVID 19 pandemic is changing the way we live and work in ways that we could not have conceived prior to 2020. Beyond Celebrancy® is a registered COVID Safe business in NSW. We will be working with you to ensure that all regulartory requirements are met, and that you are well equipped to make informed decicions relating to the safety of your guests, the community and yourselves.

While we continue to monitor relevant goverment websites and health alerts for the latest information on social distancing, restrictions on public gatherings and their possible effects on planned ceremonies, we always recommend that you regularly check the Australian Government's COVID 19 Heath Alert and the NSW Government's Health Alert for current information

As of 19th July 2021, all members of Beyond Celebrancy® have been fully vaccinated against COVID 19

Your Options

Going Ahead

If your ceremony meets the Government's criteria for allowing a social gathering, we will continue to deliver your ceremony as planned. Beyond Celebrancy® is registered as a COVID Safe business with the NSW Government.  This requires us to work with you to ensure that your ceremony has in place as many safeguards as possible to reduce the risk of COVID19 transmission. In addition to these measures, we recommend you aslo consider a few things before making the decision to go ahead with your ceremony:

  • Last minute changes to health warnings may impact your ceremony
  • Social distancing can be hard at emotional events such as weddings
  • Some of your guests may feel uncomfortable attending
  • Some venues may have more restrictions than others
  • You may be forced into self isolate as late as immediately before the ceremony
  • You can choose to postpone even on the day of your ceremony without additional charges. See the section on postponing for more information

 

Postponing to a later date

We envisage that many events including weddings will need to be postponed until the pandemic conditions ease.

Some things to consider when postponing to a later date:

  • We have never charged additional fees for postponing ceremonies
  • You may postpone your wedding now with no future date planned
  • When planning future dates, we strongly recommend that you confirm your new date with us before you commit with other vendors, especially venues, to ensure availability
  • If you commit to a date on which we are not available, or a venue that is beyond our travel range without first consulting us, normal cancellation policies and fees may apply
  • It may be possible to complete a legals only ceremony and to have your larger celebration of marriage ceremony at a later date

Our Promise

What happens if Beyond Celebrancy® is unable to attend?

As the current situation evolves, the Australian Government may enact restrictions that make it impossible for us to attend, such as a complete lock down of the area. In this case, it is most likely that your ceremony will not go ahead and we will need to postpone.

It is also possible that people here at Beyond Celebrancy® could be required to self isloate, enter quarantine, or even become sick. A major part of our promise to you has always been that we have plans in place to deal with the unexpected.

Some relevant features of these plans include:

  • Vaccination - from the 19th July 2021, all members of Beyond Celebrancy® will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This will reduce the chances of one of us becoming sick or transmitting the virus dramatically.
  • Alternate Celebrant Availability - we maintain a strong professional network that includes other local celebrants so we can quickly find an alternate celebrant where possible.
  • Price Guarantee - we hire the alternate celebrant at no additional cost to you.
  • Electronic documentation - all documentation including scanned copies of physical documents is stored in encrypted digital files. This ensures the safety of the information, while still allowing easy transfer to another celebrant should it be necessary.
