Questions and Answers

How many times would we meet before the wedding?

Sharon Kershaw

Counting the initial face-to-face meeting, generally only 2 - 3 times including the rehearsal, unless there's something you feel needs to be discussed together in person.  Most dialogue is done via email &/or phone.  I am available to my Couples as often as they need.  :)

What Legals are involved?

Sharon Kershaw

1. The Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM)  - signed at the initial booking, & a minimum of one Calendar month before the day.

2.  The Declaration of No Impediment to Marriage  - signed before the wedding - usually at the rehearsal.

3.  The Official Marriage Certificate -  signed on the day.

These are all provided by the Celebrant (though you can download the NOIM yourselves from the Attorney General's website), and lodged by her after the wedding at the Register of Births, Deaths & Marriages.

4.  The Couple's Marriage Certificate (decorative),  signed on the day & kept by the Couple.  This is a legal document, but doesn't have the same powers as the Official Marriage Certificate.

How do I write Vows?

Sharon Kershaw

Well, it's actually quite a simple process:  A Vow is a promise - and something you don't break,  so write down about 5 - 10 things you can promise to keep.  e.g. to respect you as a person;  to be honest with you; to stand up for you in front of others - even if I don't agree with you: to love you as deeply and constantly as i can, etc. etc.  By the time you've put a pile of these together with some caring connective words you have your Vows.  Simples!!  And if you have problems this is where your Celebrant can help.  :)

Sharon is very nice and she gave us all the details and how to do things before the wedding. She made sure that we were organised and followed us up to make sure we had everything that we needed.

Sharon is an amazing lady. She is personable and makes you feel at ease right from the start. Sharon helped us to create the ceremony we wanted and was happy to offer assistance when we needed it. Thank you Sharon for all your help and for carrying out a memorable ceremony.

We instantly knew Sharon was the right celebrant to marry us. When crafting our ceremony, she took the time to get to know us as a couple. Her way with words came through on the day, and she delivered the most beautiful ceremony that we will treasure forever.

Sharon Kershaw

Sharon was excellent. Searched for marriage celebrants in the area we were getting married. We chatted with her on the phone and chose her from there. We organised to meet up with her. She was great, she put us at ease, and she was good at helping guide us in the right direction. Sharon knew we wanted just a really casual ceremony and she was great to take the lead in that. She was good with any feedback we gave her. She was more than happy to chop and change things for us. She has a great personality! She also gave us a beautiful gift of binding our ceremony notes in a little book as a surprise.

Sharon Kershaw  

It was such a pleasure working with you both, and I love your sense of humour. Thank you for asking me to share your day. :)

20 Nov 2014

Sharon was very easy to get along with and really listened to our requests!

Sharon Kershaw
