Rebecca Mayo - Celebrant
Great question! I worked in travel for many years before becoming a Celebrant and this is a question I used to get all the time! It's very important that whatever name you use to travel with, matches exactly with the name in your passport. For this reason, most women will travel on their honeymoon using their maiden name. If you are an Australian passport holder, and your passport has at least 2 years validity still remaining, you can apply for a new one free of charge once you have your marriage certificate. It can take a month or two after you are married to get your marriage certificate, so depending on when you are travelling, it is usually safest to book in your maiden name! :)
