OUR FIRST MEETING
First meeting will usually be at my home or at a place that is more convenient to you. This relaxed initial meeting will allow you to express your plans and ideas to help me create something unique to you. During our meeting, I will go through the legal requirements and my role as a Civil Marriage Celebrant.
You will receive what I like to call, “my ceremony survival kit”, which will include examples of vows, a guide to help you write your own vows if that is your choice, poems, ritual ideas and readings and a comprehensive questionnaire which will give me a greater understanding of who you are.
Second meeting, we will further discuss your ceremony as well as fill out the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM). This form must be lodged with me at least 1 month prior to your ceremony. I will also need to sight the required identification documents.
We can meet again to discuss your ceremony as well as via email or telephone.
Rehearsal at the venue (venue permitting) in the days prior to your ceremony.
I conduct a sincere and professional ceremony and will ensure that I dress to fit in with the style of your wedding – it is your day, not mine!
DO I NEED TO SIGN ANYTHING?
You are required to sign some documents during the ceremony e.g. the Certificate of Marriage, the Marriage Register and the presentation Marriage Certificate. You will need two witnesses over the age of 18 to sign these documents.
At the end of your ceremony, you will receive professionally printed marriage certificate. Completion of all legal paperwork and lodgement with the relevant authorities on your behalf. (Please note, after the marriage couples must obtain their own Registered Marriage Certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages.)
Your ceremony is special to you and your guests and should be heard by all attending your wedding. I supply a PA Wireless Speaker with microphones – MP3, Bluetooth, USB, Wireless, iPhone connectivity.
Everything couldn’t have been better! It was personalised, it was honest, it was fantastic I loved it! I would definitely recommend her to anyone at all!
The moment we met her we booked in with her straight away! She was really welcoming, she just felt like part of the family! She was fantastic I would’ve been lost without her! She was really quick too, as I was a bit slack on getting things done, she was just fantastic in every single way!
Kelly was just excellent, she was really good at our ceremony and before it as well. It was a really intimate wedding, and she did a good job of keeping it personal. If I could give 10 stars we would, it was a really good day thanks to Kelly.
Kelly has just been outstanding from the get go. Her authenticity shone through in her wanting to get to know us as a couple and as individuals. She made it so easy and beautiful, it was a very memorable ceremony, not just for us but for our guests too!
