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.  :)
