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. In addition, I will need to have access to the relevant identification documents.
We can meet again to discuss your ceremony as well as via email or telephone.
Rehearsal at the venue prior to your ceremony, if permissible 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. I will also complete all legal paperwork and lodge with the appropriate authorities, all on your behalf. It is important to note that married couples, by law, must obtain their own Registered Marriage Certificate from the Department of 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.
