CREATING YOUR PERFECT MARRIAGE CEREMONY:

 

Congratulations! Your decision to marry is a very exciting and special time and your wedding ceremony will be one of the highlights. Knowing your celebrant is experienced, professional, warm and calming means you can really enjoy and savour your day without worrying. Whether you choose a simple, informal ceremony or a more elaborate one I will ensure it is professionally delivered in a style that suits you and your budget. There will be no last minute surprises. 

 

FIRST STEP:

Feel free to contact me via phone, email or text to check on my availability and to arrange your face to face meeting time. Please include your name, email address and mobile number so I can correspond in a suitable manner depending on your enquiry. If not geographically possible to meet in person, a skype interview is offered. You are under no obligation to proceed after our meeting.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO ORGANISE:

No celebrant can marry you without seeing your identity documents before the ceremony and you will need them to complete the NOIM. To guarantee you will have no issues with your qualifying documents I check them at our initial meeting. 

 

IDENTITY DOCUMENTS:  

  • Both birth certificates/passports 

  • Additional photo ID like a license 

  • Certificate of Divorce (if applicable)

  • Death certificate (if applicable)

  • Change of name certificate ( if applicable )

     

Non-Australian residents –

  • Birth certificate ( with translation by an accredited translator from the National Accreditation    

       Authority for Translators and Interpreters, if not in English ) as proof of identity

  • Passports

 

Any questions about any of the above please just ask for guidance.

SECURING YOUR BOOKING:

Once your deposit is received, I guarantee no other ceremony will be conducted on your day. I then go to work allowing you to get on with other things. I want your ceremony to be perfect for you. One month prior to your ceremony date a final checklist will be sent to you. Your big day will arrive quickly and I see you for your rehearsal

( if requested or included ) a few days prior to the ceremony. A rehearsal often assists in reducing any nerves. I then make sure your ceremony goes very smoothly and is one you will remember for the right reasons!

 

AFTER THE WEDDING:

I lodge your legal paperwork after the ceremony while you enjoy your honeymoon. You will be advised as to when your paperwork has been sent to Births, Deaths and Marriages and hopefully you'll be happy to give me some feedback :) I'm always striving to serve my clients better.
