My FAQ's

We are engaged, what do we do now?

Choosing who will marry you is a great first step in the right direction!!!  To help you establish a date however, it is often helpful to secure your preferred venue initially, letting everything else fall in around that.  Either way, you’ll want to arrange this as early as possible, along with your Photographer and Videographer to ensure you get your first choice in professionals as we tend to book up quickly.

Your Celebrant can help you with suggestions for venues if you are unsure where to start; and most Celebrants will know other great professional wedding services they can recommend to you.

What are the legal requirements to marry?

The first step is to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage form, which I usually complete on behalf of my couples during our first or any subsequent meetings.  The timing requirement to lodge this NOIM form with your chosen Celebrant is no less than 1 month, and no more than 18 months before your wedding date.

Both parties to a marriage must produce evidence of date and place of Birth.  This can be done by producing your Birth Certificates and/or passports for proof of identification and must be sited by your Celebrant prior to your marriage taking place.
Of course if either party to the marriage has been previously married, then the relevant divorce certificate must also be sited by your Celebrant.

Also prior to your wedding, both partners are required to sign a Declaration stating that there is No Legal Impediment to your marriage.

On the day of your wedding a Legally Authorised Marriage Celebrant must carry out all legal components to the marriage taking place; including the signing of your official Certificate of Marriage, your Couples Certificate and the Celebrant Registry – these papers must be signed by Bride, Groom, 2 Witnesses over the age of 18, and the Authorised Celebrant.

How do we get a copy of our official Certificate of Marriage?

The Certificate of Marriage signed and presented to you on the day of your wedding carries no legal significance and is therefore great for framing or placing in your wedding album as a keepsake…

To receive your official Marriage Certificate you will need to apply to the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the State that your marriage took place.  Along with your application, you will be required to supply proof of identity and payment.
