Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

I am in a same-sex relationship. Can I legally marry my partner?

The Joyful Celebrant

YES!! The definition of marriage has been changed in Australia to be inclusive of same sex couples. This is so exciting and a very welcome change indeed.

What documents will we need to provide?

The Joyful Celebrant

Australia 
If you were born in Australia you will need to provide your original birth certificate. If you were born overseas, your original birth certificate is preferred, however a current passport issued by your country of birth is acceptable. 

If you have been married before, you will need to provide the celebrant with proof that any prior marriage has ended whether by divorce or by the death of the other party. 

Should any of the above documents be in a foreign language, you will need to provide a certified translation in English.

If one of you is under 18 years of age, the written consent of your parents or guardian will be required.You will also need an order from the court. (Section 10-21 of The Marriage Act 1961) The Marriage Act 1961 can be downloaded for further information. 

Other Countries 
Please refer to the legal requirements in your country.

We want to elope. Do we need witnesses?

The Joyful Celebrant

Yes, you will need to have two witnesses over the age of 18. You may be able to ask staff from the resort where you are staying, or choose a photographer who has an assistant, or the celebrant may be able to organise for two witnesses to attend. At one ceremony I conducted, the couple had one friend come with them and then invited someone walking along the beach to be a witness. He was visiting from New Zealand and was delighted to assist. 

Can we get married next weekend?

The Joyful Celebrant

In Australia: 
If you have lodged a notice of intent to marry form in the required time - a month and a day before your wedding date, and fulfilled the required legal requirements, then yes, you can. If you haven't lodged the notice of intent to marry form within this time frame, then no, you cannot. The notice of intended marriage form needs to be lodged with an authorised celebrant (religious or civil). This form is valid for eighteen months from the date of lodgement. 

Under certain circumstances a shortening of this time may be granted by a prescribed authority. For more information ask your celebrant or download a free copy of the Explanatory Material on the Marriage Act which has a section on Shortening of Time.

Do we get a certificate for our Wedding Ceremony?

The Joyful Celebrant

Most celebrants provide a certificate for many different styles of ceremonies. A Marriage Certificate will be signed during the ceremony by the wedding couple, your chosen witnesses x 2 and the celebrant. This Marriage Certificate will then be gven to you on the day to commemorate your marriage, and once the marriage is registered with the Dept of Births, Deaths and Marriages, you can recieve a copy of your official certificate by applying to them directly.

Well... What can I say.... My husband and I absolutely adore Kyla!!! She is fun, energetic, eloquent and exudes a kind and beautiful personality. We love her so much, that we are doing a second ceremony next year with her again! She is a wonderful human, and we feel so blessed and thankful to have her as our celebrant. Our family and friends loved her cheerful energy and when I told them she would be our celebrant again for our post COVID wedding re-do they were so glad! Her vibrant energy truly is infectious! She really helped make the event smooth, and even moved our ceremony a million times, no fuss due to COVID. I could not have picked anyone better to be our celebrant. If you are hesitating, don't. Kyla is amazing. We couldn't recommend her more... she is AMAZING!!!

We are so glad that we found Kyla! We were unfortunately amongst those in the world that couldn't go ahead with our planned wedding due to COVID-19. We kept making plans that had to be cancelled, until we woke up one morning and decided to do a simple civil ceremony at home before we couldn't do anything at all. Kyla was so accomodating and understanding of all of these changes. She was the perfect combination of enthusiastic and relaxed, and the 4 attendees that we did have kept commenting afterwards about how lovely she was. She made everyone feel welcome and excited. Most importantly, she made it about us. She is a truly passionate about weddings and love, and her energy is contagious.

12 Jan 2020

Kyla is a genuine, sweet and professional celebrant! We found her on Easy Weddings and we decided her to be our celebrant after the first meeting. She always responded very quickly to our questions and she gave us lots of advises regards to our ceremony. On our wedding date, she made us relaxed and made our guests smile. She hosted absolutely perfect and our day has become the most memorable and so special. We can't thank her enough for everything. We definitely recommend her!! Thank you, Kyla! Xx Tomoko/Mauro

Awwww...you are THE sweetest couple! I just loved being your celebrant and officiating your wedding! You both have so much personality and personal style, it was a truly gorgeous wedding that was perfectly you! I wish you guys nothing but happiness now and always....Big love, Kyla

6 Feb 2021

From the moment we met Kyla we felt she was the perfect celebrant for us. Her bubbly and friendly nature made us feel at ease. Even during covid she took the time to check in with us including the day before our wedding, she called to make sure we weren't panicked with the newest covid outbreak. She tailored our ceremony to suit our needs and was always quick to respond to any questions we had. On our special day she came up to check in with me before I walked down the aisle and our ceremony went just perfectly thanks to Kyla being so organised. Thank you Kyla for marrying Christopher and I, you made our special day even more special and we will be forever thankful. Mr & Mrs Church 06.02.2021

We are so happy we chose Kyla as our marriage celebrant. As we all know, 2020 was quite a different, and often difficult, year for planning a wedding. We had to postpone our wedding and reschedule it for ten weeks later than originally planned. But Kyla walked us through every step of the process and we felt confident and well supported as we crossed our fingers and hoped our new wedding date would eventuate. In the lead up to our wedding, Kyla provided us with all the information we needed to get ourselves prepared to be hitched. Her wedding kit gave us ideas for beautiful readings and vows. There was nothing she didn't cover and all her wonderful support, ideas and general glowing positivity added so much beauty and love to our wedding ceremony. Thank you Kyla. We love you.

Amazing celebrant. She help us a lot and organise our wedding perfectly. Cannot thanks her enough for this beautiful day we had. Really professional and always here to help. Thank you Kyla Miki & David

5 Dec 2020

Kyla was amazing and helped guide us through every step of the way for our wedding ceremony. She helped craft the ceremony and our vowels to suit exactly what we wanted. The day went as planned and the unique 'hand fasting ritual' to conclude our ceremony added a special touch. We would highly recommend Kyla for any couple looking for a celebrant for their wedding!

7 Nov 2020

She was more than happy to answer questions at any time of the day or night! The ceremony was amazing, she was super funny and was easy to get along with!

21 Jun 2020

We had a virtual wedding because of the pandemic and both of us, as well as our family and friends who joined us online, are extremely impressed by Kyla's professionalism, dedication to our ceremony and her lovely, warm character. Thank you Kyla!

6 Apr 2020

She was sensitive, professional and engaging. We are very happy that she was our celebrant . I will recommend her to my friends .

19 Mar 2020

Kyla was a wonderful celebrant from the first contact my husband and I had with her through the whole journey of us getting married. Kyla took the time to get to know our story and make sure the wedding was everything we wanted it to be. She was professional, warm, caring, reliable and fun. We are so glad she was the person that married us. I would recommend her to anyone getting married. You are in fabulous hands with Kyla guiding you in her role as the Joyful Celebrant..

15 Mar 2020

Very accommodating, and understanding despite our less than traditional requests. Made the day more fun by having a great sense of humour, whilst maintaining a high professional standard throughout. Even followed up to make sure our certificate was delivered after COVID19 post issues. The best!

1 Dec 2019

Kyla was the perfect celebrant for us! She is a fantastic communicator, nothing was too much trouble for her and she was with us throughout our wedding journey. Kyla is a beautiful and completely understanding person. Our ceremony was simple and vibrant and Kyla definitely connected with our guests on every level. We were so happy to find her and have her marry us. We couldn't recommend her highly enough. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The Joyful Celebrant  

You are such an amazing couple! I just loved being your wedding celebrant and planning your wedding ceremony with you. Your bond is so strong and I just know in my heart that you're going to be very happily married. Thank-you for allowing me to be apart of your special day! Big Love Always, Kyla

17 Nov 2019

We felt so privileged to have Kyla to be our celebrant at our wedding on 17 Nov. 2019. We couldn't have made a better decision in who we chose, she was totally professional.Kyla was friendly and made the process of getting married easy and straight-forward. She was well-prepared and gave us creative control over vows and other parts of our ceremony , which made our big moments personal and special. Also, even more importantly, she is approachable and was a great listener. She totally got the brief of how we wanted our wedding to be and delivered. We would highly recommend Kyla to anyone looking for an amazing celebrant for your wedding! From Kanya and Matt

I wish you nothing but happiness....Big Love Always, Kyla
