QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What's the best way to choose a Celebrant?

The best way is for you and you partner to meet a prospective Celebrant. I offer a no obligation meeting to enable us to get to know each other so you can make sure I am the right one for you. I am pleased to travel to you.

We want a simple ceremony but don't know what we want. How can you help?

At our first meeting I provide a comprehensive "Wedding Kit" that includes a set of Ceremony options. I also try to match you with three actual ceremonies I have conducted to help guide you in what will work for you.

Is it okay for the Bride to be late?

A few minutes isn't an issue. However, many venues have a number of weddings on the day and running late is likely to cause pressure to complete the ceremony by its scheduled completion.

It's advisable for the groom and his party to arrive thirty minutes prior to the ceremony start and have one of his party as an appointed contact to the bridal party so any unforeseen challenges can be  easily communicated.

How do I go about changing my name after the wedding?

Once you are married there is no need to apply to change your name— this is covered by your marriage certificate. You will find many agencies now days want more than the evidence provided in the wedding certificate the Celebrant provides on your wedding day. It is necessary to apply for a standard Marriage Certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages in your State. I provide assistance for couples in Qld to apply for the Certificate  prior to the wedding day, I verify your identy and submit all the paperwork after the wedding by Express Post.

Which side does the bride and groom stand during the ceremony?

There is no "correct" side for the bride and groom to stand. It is generally the case that the bride stands to the left of the groom. Interestingly this tradition  stems from the days of "marriage by capture", when the groom needed to leave his right hand, which he used to hold his sword, free in the event that he should need to defend his bride from other suitors who may try to whisk her off at the last minute.

Regardless of the side the couple stand, it a great idea for your parents to sit on the opposite side you you so they can see your face and enjoy the occasion fully.

What are views on same sex marriage?

I believe strongly that all couples deserve the right to formalise their love through a legal union such as marriage.  I consider it a great privilege to help couples celebrate their love.

I've had the privilege of personally enjoying forty years of marriage and one's gender should not  be a barrier to this right.
