How do we put a ring on it?
There are various aspects that need to be considered and fulfilled in creating a legal wedding ceremony in Australia, from the legal paperwork and wording, to the fun and creative aspects of crafting the ceremony. Before any of that begins, however, it’s important you both feel comfortable and happy with your celebrant!
Feel free to get in touch for a chat, whether it’s video chat or in person, to make sure I’m the marriage celebrant for you. And if you’re happy to get cracking, then…
First it's the Paperwork
First, we’ll get together and complete the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form which states your intention to marry, and activates the whole process. This is also when we can start to talk about what you want (and don’t want!) for your wedding. We can start to assemble the basic structure of the ceremony, and lock in dates.
Crafting a Ceremony
Ceremonies are incredibly customisable and can be as simple and quick or as packed to the brim as you like. There are certain aspects that need to be included in your ceremony, however, there is also a lot of room for creativity. I will make sure the structure of the ceremony is legally binding, and we will keep in contact via email, phone, video call or in person to go over any extras and changes.
The Big Day!
The Big Day is arriving and the exciting part is about to begin! I’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure you say and do all you need to, the ceremony plays through the way you have planned, and that you enjoy yourself as well! After the vows, I will walk you and your witnesses through signing the three required marriage documents, before I present you as a newly, married couple to your friends and family. Then, it’s over to you to party the night away!
