QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How do we choose the right Celebrant?

I would recommend that you book an appointment with a celebrant and make sure it feels right for you as a couple. What I do when I am meeting a couple for the first time, we would meet for a coffee/breakfast/ beer and we would get to know each other. Once the couple feel the connection is right, we then start locking arrangements in.

How far in advance can we / should we book a Celebrant?

September through to December is wedding season. If you are planning on a ceremony during these months, celebrants calendars fill up quickly. I would recommend booking in 9-12 months in advance.

What paperwork do we need to lodge for our wedding?

The legal paperwork needs to be completed and in your celebrants hands at least one calander month in advance of your wedding. To complete this paperwork, you need to have your licence and your original Birth Certificate OR you can have your passport.

I don’t have one month, can I apply for a ‘Shortening of Time’?

The only way you can apply for a “Shortening of time” is for medical reasons or you/your partner is in the military and are going away with work. This then needs to be approved by a magistrate

When and where can we have our ceremony?

Where ever and when ever you and your partners heart desires as long as it is within the boundaries of Australia. As long as you have two witnesses over the age of 18, your venue is limitless. You dream it, we can do it!

Are you prepared to travel for our wedding?

FOR SURE!!! I challenge any couple out there to take me to the most unique wedding venue you can think of within Australia.

How much input can we have for our ceremony?

I have been to many ceremonies where the celebrant provides words of wisdom in regards to marriage. I’ve even been to a wedding where the celebrant went off track talking about the love of a dinosaur. If this is what you want, this is what I will give you HOWEVER I promise to only include what YOU want to include. Apart from the legal working that must be included throughout the ceremony, the rest is up to you. THIS IS YOUR DAY!!

What if we don’t know what we want in our ceremony?

FANTASTIC!!! Lets sit down and talk about you like/ don’t like. I have lots of ceremony examples I give my couples so they can get the ideas rolling.

Should we have a rehearsal?

What I normally tell couples in regards to rehearsals is: If you want a rehearsal, we will have a rehearsal.

What time will you arrive on the day?

For me I hate being late to anything. I arrive one hour before your ceremony. By arriving an hour before the ceremony, this gives me time to set up, meet your guests, throw some music on, chat to your bridal party, chat to your wedding planner/photographer and possibly even have a sneaky beer with you. Your job on the wedding day is to turn up. My job is to do everything else so you are relaxed and ready for a day of fun!!

Will our wedding in Australia be recognised worldwide?

It is my job to make sure the legal paperwork is sorted and sent away. If your marriage is not recognised, it means I’m not doing my job.
