Congratulations on your decision to celebrate your love!
As a wedding celebrant in the Byron Bay region I will help make your day perfect!
Our first obligation free meeting, either face to face or via skype, will give you the opportunity to consider my suitability for your special occasion – whether that be an elopement, a relaxed beach wedding or a lavish black tie affair with a couple of guests or hundreds!
I will outline the legal process required for all marriages in Australia and the procedure involved in the creation of your perfect ceremony! After confirming a booking with me, I will issue an invoice and a netbank transfer can be made to secure your date. Our next step will be to sight originals of…
- Birth Certificates or Passports (if born overseas)
- Photographic ID
- Divorce, Annulment or Death Certificate if previously married
The Notice of Intent to Marry form needs to be activated by at least one signature and lodged with your celebrant no later than one month prior to your ceremony date. If you live interstate or overseas this can be done where you live, witnessed appropriately and forwarded to your celebrant within the one month time frame. A scanned and emailed copy is acceptable if time is an issue, the original being presented at your earliest convenience. This form remains active for 18 months.
On your big day I will ensure everything is in order and deliver your ceremony with a professional calm and warmth. A stickler for detail, I like to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the arrival of guests to set up my PA system, register and all else that is required. I liaise with photographer, venue coordinator, decorator, musicians and lend a hand wherever needed. When the groom and his party arrive I often attach boutonnieres, adjust ties, confirm last minute details and calm nerves.
In the days following your ceremony I will complete your paper work and submit to Births Deaths & Marriages in the state you were married. I am happy to include your application for Marriage Certificate thus saving you the multiple ID scenario.
I am happy to offer unlimited consultations to achieve your perfect wedding ceremony.
