Questions and Answers

My fiance is stuck overseas. Can we be married remotely by Zoom?

Susanna Jose Ceremonies

Unfortunatley no. Remote weddings are not legal in Australia.  The couple , the two witnesses and the celebrant all need to be present together.

What you can do remotely is:

  • lodge the signed and witnessed Notice of Intended Marriage with the celebrant by email
  • scan and email  your identity documents for the celebrant
  • meet with the celebrant to plan your wedding by Zoom
  • stream your ceremony to friends and family elsewhwere

If you need any information about the legalities of Australian marriages, always ask a celebrant listed on the website of the Attorney General's Department.

We both have children from a previous marriage. Can they be involved in the ceremony?

Susanna Jose Ceremonies

Most definitely, the children can be involved. Some lovely ways include:

  • as ring bearers or in the wedding party
  • reading a poem (depending on the age)
  • scattering rose petals
  • carrying a chalkboard announcing the wedding party
  • giving (or revceiving) a gift or flower 
  • combining coloured sand to represent the new family

As a couple you can incorporate a promise to the children as part of your own personal vows.

One last word...Children always do the best they can at a wedding. I have never yet seen a child muck up their special job. I've seen 18 month toddlers deliver the rings at the appropriate time, successfully.

Do we have to write our own vows?

Susanna Jose Ceremonies

Writing your own vows is entirely a matter of choice. You have to say the legal vows without change. Some couples are happy just for those. Others want to add their personal or surprise vows to the legal ones.

I have a chapter on writing vows in my book, MarryMe! A guide for couples planning their marriage ceremony, free to all couples confirming a booking with me.
