Please note: there may be additional documentation needed depending on your circumstance, I will advise when this is necessary.

At this meeting we will:

  • Enter the information and finalise the Notice of Intended Marriage form and I will witness both your signatures.
  • Explain the ‘Declaration of no legal impediment to marriage’ form which we will officially sign one week before the marriage date, or if circumstances pertain, the day of the ceremony.

Once you are completely happy, I get to work creating Your Wedding Ceremony

After meeting and getting to know you, I will now create your wedding ceremony. Once it’s created in initial form, I’ll forward a draft ceremony for you to consider. Once you are totally happy with everything, I’ll finalise the ceremony outline for your perfect day.
Please remember there are specific legal phrases and words that marrying couple and their Celebrant must complete for the marriage to be valid.

Rehearsal (Only if required, additional fees may be incurred)

At this meeting we will meet at your wedding spot and run through your final wedding ceremony. Not all marrying couples require this but it is an option you may wish to consider as it allows you to get a real feel of what the day will be like, however a rehearsal fee of $95.00 will be applied.

One Week to go,

We will get together and sign the Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage Form and finalise your ceremony drafts.

Let’s get you married! It’s Your Wedding Day.

(Please note the Elopement Package is available only to smaller more intimate groups of ten people or less.)

On your wedding day:

  • I will be available to you 24 hours exclusively to alleviate any concerns you may have. This also means I will never book two weddings on one day so you never have to worry.
  • I will arrive at the venue at least 1 hour before the ceremony, this gives me plenty of time to set up or co-ordinate as required.
  • I will meet with the applicable parties to confirm any last minute requirements or answer any queries as per pre arrangement with the marrying parties.
  • My role on the day is to smoothly coordinate with all involved, including your guests, photographer, musicians, venue organisers etc until the completion of the ceremony.
  • I will officiate your marriage and lodge your relevant documents with the BDM 
  • You, your partner, your witnesses and I will sign three marriage certificates.
  • I will leave you with a Ceremonial Certificate of Marriage and a copy of your personalized Wedding Ceremony.

Lodgement of Legal Documents.

After your wedding, I will lodge the original Certificate of Marriage and other documents with the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the State or Territory where your marriage took place. This will finalise the legal process.

If required:

I also offer to include in my fees the application, lodgement and payment of your official BDM Marriage Certificate on your behalf, (an additional fee of $60 is required for this Certificate). I send this completed form off for you when I lodge your marriage documents with the office of Births, Deaths and Marriages. You will then receive your official BDM Certificate of Marriage via registered mail within 2 weeks of your wedding date.

Please note: The certificate you receive from myself on your wedding day is a ceremonial certificate only and will not meet the identity requirements of many government agencies. You will need to wait until your documents have been lodged and you receive your Official Certificate of Marriage issued to you by your state or territory Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages to have your personal documentation (e.g. driver’s licence) changed to your married name.
If you choose a Celebrant who does not offer this service you will need to apply for these documents yourself.
