As a Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant, I act in under Australian Law, as such welcome any parties who can legally marry accordingly to that law.
Not sure of what you want in your ceremony? That is okay, I will walk you through every aspect of it to create the ceremony you want to ensure your day is as special and unique as you
Getting married in Australia
To be legally married in Australia, a person must:
not be married to someone else
not be marrying a parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, brother or sister
be at least 18 years old, unless a court has approved a marriage where one party is aged between 16 and 18 years old
understand what marriage means and freely consent to marrying
use specific words during the ceremony
give written notice of their intention to marry to their authorised celebrant, within the required time frame.
I will help you understand these requirements.
Important Paperwork - Notice of Intended Marriage
A completed Notice of Intended Marriage form must be given to me at least one month before the wedding. (can be up to 18 months before hand)
I can help you complete the form.
Let me know if there is less than one month before your wedding.
You will need to give me evidence of date and place of birth, identity and the end of any previous marriages for each party.
After you are married
On the day of your wedding, you will sign three marriage certificates. Each certificate will be signed by you, me and two witnesses of your choosing. I will give you one of the certificates as a record of your marriage
I must register your marriage with the registry of births, deaths and marriages in the state or territory it took place within 14 days.
The certificate issued by the registry of births, deaths and marriages is required for many official purposes. I order this certificate for you and it will be posted directly to you.
