Weddings

Everyone wants their wedding to be special and so it should be! It is one of the most significant events in your life.

You have probably already given a great deal of thought to the location for the ceremony and the reception, the outfits for the bridal party, THE dress, the music and perhaps even the guest list. Of course these things are all crucial if your day is to be as you wish.

However, the most important aspect of your wedding day is the ceremony itself. The words that you say to each other, in the presence of your family members and your friends are what can make your wedding truly unique. Your wedding vows can be written from your heart.

I would consider it a great privilege to be able to officiate at your wedding and I would be delighted to help you create a ceremony that sincerely reflects your relationship with each other. After an initial ‘no obligation’ meeting, if you decide that I am the right person for your wedding ceremony, a subsequent meeting is arranged.

At this time, your Notice of Intended Marriage is completed – you will need to provide proof of identity at this meeting. Your wedding date is booked by paying a non-refundable booking fee. I will provide you with information about Marriage and Relationship Education – this is a legal requirement.

We can then determine your wishes for the ceremony and I can prepare the ceremony exactly the way you would like. If you are unsure, I can provide resources to assist you to make those decisions. I will liaise with you in person or by phone, email or fax until you are satisfied that the ceremony is right for you. Shortly before the wedding date, we will have an on-site rehearsal to ensure that everyone involved feels comfortable with their role on the day.

I will ensure that all certificates and documentation for lodging with the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages are completed.

After the ceremony I will make available your own written, keepsake copy of the ceremony presented in an attractive folder.
