What is an Altar Electric Wedding?

Our ceremonies are short and sharp but big on creating a unique, personal vibe that should be important on your wedding day. Just because you’re getting married ‘registry style’ doesn’t mean your ceremony has to be boring. We are about providing a genuine alternative wedding option for those who want it…and all weddings SHOULD be memorable. Your dedicated celebrant will greet you on arrival, complete your paperwork and spend time getting to know before your ceremony starts…by the end you’ll feel like old friends! Speaking of friends, you are more than welcome to bring up to 20 guests. Should you wish to organise a drinks package for your pals, let us know via the enquiry form. Ceremonies are booked in thirty-minute intervals. The actual ceremony will take between 3 – 10 minutes, depending on how personal you want it to be. Once you’ve sealed that deal, head to the bar and toast your love with a drink on us. Hurrah!

The Venue

Behind an unassuming door on Tattersalls Lane and up two flights of stairs adorned with grungey street art lies Ferdydurke – one of Melbourne’s hippest, most happening laneway bars. This hidden gem oozes with feel good vibes – think New York loft meets comfy neighbourhood pub. Grand, old school arched windows look out across Lonsdale St and beyond, providing the perfect backdrop to get hitched the Altar Electric way. The surrounding laneways, dotted with festoon lighting and iconic Melbourne graffiti are ripe for post ceremony photographs and celebrations. What a way to kick off your big day!

Dee Brinsmead: Celebrant at The Altar Electric

Meet our little mate Dee AKA @marrymedee. She’s known for her big shoes, sequins and gun fingers – don’t worry though, you won’t need to duck for cover, she’s a lover not a fighter. Dee’s a little bit kooky and a bit of a creative… who are we kidding, she’s a whole lotta both! Most of all she has a big heart (quite literally, a giant furry heart she often wears around her neck, you can barely see her behind it). Dee loves weddings, live music and getting everyone in the room to sing…it’s kinda her thing. Most of all, this little firecracker will give you those electric feels you want on your ‘Big Day’. Check out Dee @thealtarelectric – she promises to marry the s%*t out of you. Boom!
