Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Can our witnesses be family members

Yes, anyone over the age of 18 can be a witness at your wedding

Can I use the certificate we get on the wedding day to change my name?

No that certificate is a presentation certificate only and can not be used as legal proof of marriage.

You will have to apply for an official copy from department of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the state where you got married.

Do I have to say the vows at my wedding, I don't like to talk in front of people

Yes ,the vows are part of the legal requirements in a wedding ceremony.

The vows do not have to be long or complicated at all just a few words to reflect that you are making a lifelong commitment to each other . As your celebrant I can help you find a few but meaninful words to say.

Can you shorten the 30 day waiting time for us ?

No  I can not personally shorten the time, it can only be done by prescribed authorities, you can normally make an appointment to see someone at the department of Births ,Deaths and Marriages whom can help you with that.

There are only five reasons a prescribed authority may allow a couple to marry in Australia when a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) is lodged with an authorised celebrant with less than one month’s notice:

Employment related or other travel commitments (evidence of the date on which the applicant was informed about this commitment as opposed to the date on which the commitment will commence will need to be provided);

Wedding or celebration arrangements, or religious considerations (receipts for payments or evidence of the date wedding invitations were sent will need to be produced);

Medical reasons (a letter from a medical practitioner will be required);

Legal proceedings; or

An error in giving notice (on the part of the authorised celebrant, not the couple.)
