MY SERVICES

 Wedding Ceremony

 

 

My services include:

  • A preliminary, no-obligation meeting to discuss the style of ceremony you'd like, and how we can both achieve this together. This initial discussion will allow me to inform you of the legal requirements that are required by law to be included in the ceremony.  After that, it's a blank slate for us to create the ceremony that represents you best.

  • A ceremony starter kit given to you at our initial meeting will include a booking form and a detailed invoice.  If you'd like to secure a booking with me for your wedding date, return of these included forms and a deposit payment will secure my service for your ceremony.

  • Access to my resources (poems and verse, sample vows, ritual ideas and music suggestions).

  • A follow-up meeting to go through the first draft of your ceremony, as well as the completion of the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM). This is when I will require the identification documents relevant to your circumstance (as specified in the ceremony starter kit). Shortly after the second meeting I will email you an updated draft of your ceremony.  We can meet again to discuss or correspond as often as you like via email or telephone. 

  • Rehearsal at the venue (venue permitting) in the days prior to your ceremony. 

  • A professionally printed marriage certificate.

  • A copy of your wedding ceremony.

  • Completion of all legal paperwork and lodgement with the relevant authorities on your behalf.  (Please note, after the marriage couples must apply for their own Registered Marriage Certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages.

  • A professional quality PA system with MP3 player ( USB) and iPhone connectivity.

  • I will dress appropriately to ensure that I compliment the bridal party and reflect your dress code.

 Elopements / Legals Only Ceremony

 

 

There are a few scenarios in which this type of ceremony can lend itself to.  Should a couple want an intimate and private affair to forego the excitement and expense of a customary wedding, or if an overseas ceremony's legality within Australia is questionable (for example, certain wedding ceremonies conducted in Bali, where the validity of marriage can often be uncertain), an Elopement / Legals only ceremony may suit couples who desire to marry with only two witnesses present (which is the legal requirement).

My services include:

  • A preliminary, no-obligation meeting to discuss the legal requirements of a marriage and ceremony content. Completion of the booking form,  the joint signing of the invoice and a deposit payment will secure my services. 

  • A second meeting, for  discussion of the ceremony draft and attend to the legal documentation. Your  identification documents relevant to your circumstances will need to be presented at this time.

  • A professionally printed marriage certificate.

  • Completion of all legal paperwork and lodgement with the relevant authorities

  • A Change of Name Kit if the Bride wishes to assume the Groom's surname.

  • I will dress appropriately to ensure that I reflect your dress code.

Please send me an email with your proposed date and venue, so that I can send you a quote.
