Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How do I choose a celebrant that will suit my partner and I?

  • Your celebrant should be available for you & approachable.
  • You want to feel a connection on the first phone call & again at your first meeting. 
  • Ask your celebrant what approach they use to write your ceremony & engage a celebrant who will write your ceremony for you & all about you.  After all, who wants to get married using someone else’s ceremony. 
  • Choose a professional celebrant. Someone who makes a living from being a celebrant is invested in you & focused on your joy.

How will I know what paperwork I have to do?

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:major-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:major-latin; mso-ansi-language:EN-US;}

  • A good celebrant will look after all of the paperwork for you. The main thing for you to be aware of is that your Notice of Intended Marriage must be lodged no earlier than 18 months out from your wedding & at least one month before.
  • So make sure you have a celebrant engaged within that time frame.

How long does a marriage ceremony take?

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:major-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:major-latin; mso-ansi-language:EN-US;}

  • A typical marriage ceremony will take between 20-30 minutes, but it all depends on you & what components you want in your ceremony.

Can I request my celebrant to wear a certain colour or outfit?

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:major-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:major-latin; mso-ansi-language:EN-US;}

  • You can certainly make the request. Most celebrants will have a range of outfits they choose from & will try to blend in with your colour theme where possible.

I have an issue with someone posting pics of us before we do on social media...can we ask them not to?

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:major-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:major-latin; mso-ansi-language:EN-US;}

  • Sure, just ask your celebrant to make an announcement before the ceremony starts that you’d prefer to be the first to share photos from your wedding.
  • It’s also OK to ask your guests not to get in the way of your photographer.
  • A good way is for the celebrant to ask your guests to be “present” & to enjoy the experience.

After researching celebrants online, I came across Cheryl. After my (now) husband and I met her for the first time we decided wholeheartedly that we wanted her to be our celebrant. Cheryl made the process so simple for us and helped us to come up with the ceremony truly unique to us. On the day she was fantastic and had such a warm and friendly demeanor, she helped make our day so special. Would highly recommend Cheryl and we hope to work with her again in the future.

Our communication with the celebrant from day one was excellent. Cheryl was always very punctual, professional and helpful in all ways to make our wedding day special and stress less. She wrote just a beautiful ceremony for us, including the music and wishes of our choice. Her sense of humour and reassurance really made our wedding day a very happy and unforgettable occasion.

Thank you Larysa. It was an absolute joy spending time with you & David for your special day xx

From the moment we met Cheryl, we knew we wanted her as our Celebrant. Cheryls' easy going and caring manner was just what we were looking for. She was fun to work with, especially in the lead up period to our wedding. At all times she was the consummate professional. Cheryl did not let us down. The way she conducted our ceremony was moving and loving and this was affirmed by all our guests who stated it was one of the loveliest ceremonies that they had attended. Cheryl made us very comfortable throughout the entire proceeding. She also injected humour into the event, which added to the fun and relaxed manner of our wedding. My wife and I would not hesitate in recommending Cheryl if you are trying to decide on a celebrant for your wedding. She was simply fantastic.

Cheryl was great, very accommodating and personalised the whole service . Everyone commented on just how beautiful the ceremony was which was thanks to Cheryl. Would gladly recommend her for any wedding including same sex like ours.

Cheryl provided us with such amazing support as well as a friendly service. She was able to take us through every step of the process, which made it all less daunting. The service was absolutely perfect, even our guests commented on how friendly, yet professional she was! We can't thank Cheryl enough for her guidance and wouldn't recommend anyone else for a wedding celebrant!

Cheryl was beyond amazing, that's really all there is to it! From the minute we met her, my now husband and I were like yup, that's our celebrant. She is so professional, but so fun at the same time. Felt so at ease throughout the whole process and the ceremony she put together was better than we imagined. The day went together so amazing and we couldn't be happier with our choice of celebrant. Could not recommend Cheryl more then we do! Thank you so much for making our day magic!!

Cheryl Forbes Celebrant & MC  

Thanks Chloe & Stuart. Every moment with you was a joy & I wish you every future happiness xx

Incredible! We have been married before, so we were very aware of the process and she just made the wedding so personal, like she knew us so well. Everyone related to how she told our story and it was an incredible ceremony. She went above and beyond!

We loved having Cheryl as our celebrant. She is very professional but also personable and cares about every detail. She helped us above and beyond her role, before and after the wedding. Cheryl wrote a beautiful ceremony and helped to make our day very special.

Hi Claire, Thanks for the review. I loved being the celebrant for you & Chris, you were a dream couple to work with. I know you'll have a very happy life together. Cheryl

Cheryl was fantastic, we wanted a no fuss wedding so we picked to exchange vows on a plane while skydiving which Cheryl was excited to do and she jumped too!

Cheryl Forbes Celebrant & MC  

Hi Karen, I can't think of a better way to start the new year. Thank you for inviting me to take the plunge with you & Dave. Truly a unique experience. Wishing you both every happiness for the future. Cheryl
