Let's get married!
Congratulations on your engagement! Now it's time to start planning your big day. One important thing to remember is that Celebrants can get booked up fast, especially during peak wedding season.
A Celebrant has to be someone you feel comfortable with, which is why I offer a complimentary consultation. During this meeting, we will discuss your engagement, wedding, and what I offer as a Celebrant.
You must provide proof of birth by showing either your original Birth Certificate or Passport. If you cannot find your original Birth certificate and were born in Australia, you can obtain your Birth Certificate by applying at the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages. If you were born overseas, you could provide either your original Birth Certificate or foreign Passport, which must be legible in English. If you are divorced, you must provide an original Certificate of Divorce from the Family Court. If widowed, an original Death Certificate from Births, Deaths & Marriages, both legible in English.
As a legal requirement, you must complete the Notice of Intended Marriage and submit it to me at least one month before your special day; the sooner, the better.
Your wedding ceremony must be witnessed by at least two people who speak and understand English and are at least 18 years of age. They will be required to witness the ceremony and sign the certificates.
