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?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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.

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.

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..

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

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!

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.

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

Kyla Sorrene was our marriage celebrant and she was absolutely perfect for us! From the moment we initially met, she asked us deep questions about our relationship and worked to understand the exact type of wedding ceremony we wanted. We received multiple compliments on how great Kyla was and how special her ceremony was! Would absolutely recommend her services! She goes over and above. Thank you Kyla for helping our day be so special!

Kyla was absolutely amazing! Planning a wedding was at times pretty stressful, but she was a breath of fresh air and just so lovely to deal with. She was incredibly helpful, accommodating and went to great lengths to ensure the ceremony was tailored for our every need. Working with Kyla was so easy and fun, from the very first meeting right up until the big day. Kyla quickly became so much more than just a celebrant we'd engaged for the day. I was so happy to have her be part of our special day and I would not hesitate to recommend Kyla to any of our friends or family.

The Joyful Celebrant  

Thank-you so much Lauren & Steve, I just loved your wedding and it was so clear how much in love you are! You guys were the dream clients, and so excited and happy to be getting married and not getting too stressed about the little things. I just know you're going to be very happily married and I wish you the very best of love and joy always....Big love, Kyla

Kyla is amazing. She did an incredible job of making the wedding process effortless, easy and smooth. Everything was great; from her planning, presentation and passion for crafting a unique and tailored wedding ceremony. Kyla is clearly someone who loves her work and it really shows. Her attention to detail and approach to making sure the ceremony was perfect for our day allowed us to relax and be confident everything would work swimmingly. From our very first meeting with Kyla we knew she was the perfect person to officiate our wedding. Every step was met with a warm supporting attitude and all pre-wedding correspondence was a breeze. The ceremony was delivered and coordinated well to accommodate our guests. We received plenty of positive feedback from the wedding guests who were impressed with her work and how beautiful the ceremony was. We highly recommend Kyla to anyone looking for a celebrant.

The Joyful Celebrant  

Awww...thank-you so much for the amazing review! We had such fun didn't we! You are such a beautiful couple with an amazing bond, I wish you nothing but happiness and I hope the love you feel today shines on throughout the years of your marriage...Big love always, Kyla
