Solemniser on Public Holiday


New Member
Hi everyone

I’m potentially looking to hold my wedding on 1 Jan 2023 as that’s the only date available for the the venue that’s 1st on our wishlist for the whole month of Dec n Jan. does anyone know if it’s possible to engage a solemniser on 1 Jan and if there’s going to be extra surcharge? I’m trying to figure out the extra cost for engaging a solemniser, photographer, etc before confirming the venue.

A solemnizer is a volunteer public servant and hence there is no charge or surcharge. However, it would be polite to give a good ang pow if you engage them because it would be a sacrifice for them.
