WHAT TO DO FIRST

1  Just Call or Email Me

To see if I'm available for your special day, talk about your Wedding Ceremony and ask me any questions you may have.

Then we can arrange a no-obligation, 'get to know each other' meeting in my office in Glenelg North, to see if you feel comfortable with me. If you decide I'm the right Celebrant for you, a $200 deposit is required to secure your wedding date in my diary and we will complete, sign & lodge the required NOIM form (see below).  

3  Lodge a NOIM Form

A 'Notice of Intention to Marry' form must be completed & lodged with your chosen Celebrant, at least one month before and

no sooner than 18 months before you can marry. For your convenience, I have my own Celebrant Portal, enabling the NOIM to

be sent/received electronically. I'm also a JP & can witness all your legal documents.  

4  What You'll Need

  • Original Birth Certificates (copies are ok if you also have valid Passports)

  • Drivers Licences, or Student Card, or some other form of Photo ID

  • If previously married, I'll need to sight original evidence of termination of that marriage

5  Designing Your Ceremony

Now for the fun part!  I'll ask questions about how you first met & began your relationship & what you love about each other, so I can professionally write your 'couple story' into the ceremony, making it uniquely yours, interesting and fun!  

‚Äč

Using my many examples and fresh ideas, we will design your fabulous wedding ceremony together, to reflect your personalities.  I will then email you the first draft which can be changed as many times as you like, until it's perfect & exactly what you want!

 

Prior to your wedding day we can have a 'trial run' of your exciting day to ensure everything goes smoothly!
