Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Celebrate with Marg Marriage Celebrant offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

Where can I get a notice of intended marriage form?

Is this something that I have to find myself?

I am happy to send you a copy of the Notice of Intended Marriage. Or you can download one. Your Celebrant will help you complete the form and witness your signatures. Otherwise your Signature can be witnessed by the list of people that are on the back of the form. Thanks

Fun celebrants?

Looking for someone who can make our wedding unique and a bit more fun!

Absolutely!! Apart from the 3 Legal things that need to be done to have a legal Marriage Ceremony, you can have as much fun as you like and make your Ceremony Unique and full of Love!! Talk to your Celebrant about what you would like to have in your Marriage Ceremony.

Can you help me with a wedding vow for my husband?

I like a lot the one about the sail but my husband likes fishing and I would like to come out with a fun vow.. can you help me? Thanks a lot


I usually send my couples a selection of Vows that they are welcome to use or change to suit your needs.

Your vows don't have to be the same, so it would be perfectly alright to have your Vows about the Sail and 

your Husband's Vows about fishing.

Fun vows are fun!!

Which is the bride's side and which is the groom's side?

Is this still a thing? Obvious not for same sex couples, but still

Generally the groom is on the left of the Celebrant and the Bride is on the right. 

But if you would like to swap over, that is fine too!!

Should I avoid getting married on Jan 13th as it will be so busy right?

We're a same-sex couple

You need to give one months notice of your Wedding. 

If you want to marry on 13/1/18, you should. 


Is it bad to have my guests sitting in the sun?

What if it's really hot? It's a feb wedding. What can I do to ensure no one faints? :/

If it’s really hot. Yes!  They may faint or at least sunburn. 

Its better to provide some shade if possible. 

who are the witnesses if you elope?

Even if you elope, you still need two witnesses who were at your Wedding and are over 18.

If you are not able to supply some witnesses, I am able to bring two witnesses for your Ceremony 

so that your Wedding will be legal.

If my divorce is not finalised, but I want to remarry... can I file a Notice of Intention to Marry?


Great Question!!

you are able to file your Notice of Intended Marriage even if your divorce is not finalised,

so before your divorce is finalised.

You need to be able to show that your divorce is finalised before you are able to marry.

You need to have the final papers to show the Celebrant.

do you think celebrants would be up for flying to officiate a destination wedding?

would i have to pay for their flights accommodation food etc


I think this is an individual response, depending upon circumstances eg family, timing etc.

I would certainly love it!!!!

The question of costing would have to be negotiated with the Celebrant, maybe some sharing

could be worked out.

everyone says i need to have cash on the day. but what for?


I'm not sure?? My couples pay their deposit soon after booking and the balance two weeks before the Wedding Ceremony. 

There is no need to have cash or any money on the day for me, as the Celebrant. 

When I enquire with a celebrant, what should I be asking them>?

The first thing that you should ask is "Are they available for your Special Wedding Day?"

If they are, it is important to meet with them to see if you are a fit with them and you feel comfortable.

If you feel comfortable, then chat about what you would like in your Ceremony.

-the things that you like and don't like.

A good Celebrant should be very organised and be able to make some suggestions for you and make you feel at ease.

They should be able to give you some ideas for Readings and Vows and also incorporate your ideas as well.

Our celebrant gave us a brochure called "happily ever before and after"?

They explained why which is fine, but this brochure is really terrible haha, why is this still a thing?!

The Brochure "Happily Ever... Before and After" is a legal requirement of the Attorney General's Department.

It contains some useful information and the Celebrant MUST give it to the couple and

sign to say that it has been given to the couple.

Can I request my celebrant to wear a certain colour or outfit?

I've seen some awful clashing outfits and celebrants in white etc... is it rude to ask them to wear a particular colour or style? I don't know if I'm taking it way too far haha. But I want everything to look good! It is my wedding day, after all :)

I'm very happy to wear or not wear a particular colour if requested by the bride. I agree it's the Brides day!!

Good luck for your Wedding Day

How do I change my name when I get married?

How does it all work?

Hi Lucy,

It is very easy !

After you receive your official certificate from Births Deaths and Marriages you take it to the Service Australia Office in your city

and they will change your drivers license and Passport free of charge for you

Help! I need vows help, I honestly have no idea what to say! I love her. What else should I say?

I asked my friends and they said it'd come to me. It hasn't. I am freaking out!!!

Hi Melissa,

I always send my couples some Vow suggestions that they can use or copy and paste some together.

You can add some personal parts but this is a great basis to start.

Also you can google

Good luck with your Wedding plans
