Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What happens at our first meeting?

Ebony Carver Celebrant

The first meeting is very casual! It is an opportunity to see if we 'click' and if I am the right Celebrant for you. Over a coffee (or wine!), we will discuss the wedding process and details of your special day. There is no pressure to book me on the spot (but feel free if you want to!); you need to be happy with your choice. You may want to meet some others to compare. 

What legal paperwork do I need to fill in?

Ebony Carver Celebrant

Once your booking is complete, you will need to fill in a Notice of Intended Marriage. It needs to be filled in no earlier than 18 months and no later than one month before the date of the marriage. Then a week or two out from the wedding (most likely at the rehearsal), you will fill in a Declaration of No Legal Impediment. On the day of the wedding, you will each sign three marriage certificates; including your witnesses and myself. One marriage certificate will be kept as a record/keepsake and the rest of the paperwork will be sent to Births, Deaths and Marriages.

How long are your ceremonies?

Ebony Carver Celebrant

Typically a ceremony will run for 20-30 minutes, depending on how many other elements you would like included. These could be readings, poems, rituals, etc. It can be casual, romantic, humorous - the style and length is completely up to you!

What ID do you need to sight?

Ebony Carver Celebrant

I will need to sight an original birth certificate or passport if you were born in Australia. I will also need to sight a driver's licence or keypass to prove your place of residence. If born outside of Australia, an overseas passport will be required. This is to prove your date and place of birth, as well as photo identification.

What if I have been previously married?

Ebony Carver Celebrant

I will need to sight the certificate of divorce, decree absolute or overseas issued equivalent.

Where do I even begin?! From the minute we met with ebony we knew she was the person that we wanted to marry us! Such a down to earth, funny & kind person that I am forever grateful I got to meet. The process leading up to the wedding was made so easy & so fun along the way! The ceremony was everything we could’ve asked for and our story was told perfectly by ebony. There are no words to express how grateful we are for ebony making our day as special as it was ✨

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

Miss you guys! Thank you for your kind words. Your wedding day was such a highlight for me, I wish we could go back and do it all over again xo

Well Mrs Carver, where do I even start with u?! From the first meeting we had with u, we knew u were the one for us! U asked what we wanted in a ceremony and got to know a little bit about our story. You made us feel so relaxed and confident that u were going to be able to tell our story the way we wanted it to be told. We walked out of our first meeting and we sat in the car and both said yes straight away! 😬 There was no hesitation at all. In the lead up to the actual day, if there were any questions we had about our ceremony, not once did you ever hesitate with an answer. You also went above an beyond suggesting some readings and ceremony songs! On the 3/11/19 u absolutely made our wedding day 💗🙌🏽!!!! From the moment I arrived at the venue, u rushed out to see if all was ok and to calm my nerves. You were so thoughtful and caring. I couldn’t have asked for such an amazing celebrant! Our ceremony was perfect and we had so many compliments! We had laughs, tears and joy. All we ever wanted was a relaxed and fun loving ceremony and you absolutely nailed it to a tee! We can not thank u enough and will be forever grateful that u were the one to marry us! We feel like u weren’t just a celebrant to us, we actually feel like we have made a new friend! We can’t wait to catch up with u over a wine/beer and share a bit of laugh about how I mucked up my vows 🤦🏽‍♀️🤣! Haha. Thank u again Eb, it was so so so so perfect! 😘 Big love to u, love Mr & Mrs Briggs xxxxx

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

I adore you two, thank you for your kind words! Your ceremony will always be one of my favourites. Lots of love to you, Mr and Mrs Briggs xxx

The most beautiful person who has really found her calling!! We only met Ebony and fell in love with her straight away. She is such a warm, caring person who is just focused on representing your love story in a way that is uniquely you. She guided us when we were stuck for words and when we met with her, we could have chatted for hours more. We were amazed at home much she captured from us chatting away over lunch and she really portrayed the love and relationship that we have. Ebony was great in helping us think about different ways to doing the ceremony, she loved our ideas and really helped make them a special moment. She is absolutely beautiful inside and out which helps because she is in your photos too :-) Strongly strongly recommend Ebony. I don't think you'll meet anyone else after you meet her.

How have I only just seen this?! Gosh I love you guys! Hands down one of the best weddings I've been part of. Full of fun, love, creativity and laughs. Thank you for trusting me with your ceremony. And I'm loving seeing all of your pics. Keep in touch lovers, would love to have a drink with you both soon xxx

Ebony was supportive, flexible, organised, and always a wonderful mix of calm and bubbly. She was with us every step, guiding and supporting us when everything seemed too hard - we postponed our Mornington Peninsula wedding and ended up holding a completely different and smaller wedding on another date in Melbourne. Ebony was happy to bounce ideas, change things around with COVID restrictions, and she genuinely just made our day happen. I cannot recommend Ebony highly enough.

28 Nov 2020

Ebony has been an absolute gem throughout our entire lead up to our wedding. Despite the challenges this year has thrown at us. She has been incredibly accommodating and helpful when we really needed it! Highly recommend Ebony as a person, and for her services!

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

I'm not sure I could love you any more if I tried! A review BEFORE the ceremony? Thank you lovely. I can't wait to get you two married later this month xx

14 Nov 2020

2020 was a rough year for everyone and having to cancel our wedding three times didn't help. But when we made the decision to go ahead with a COVID-friendly small wedding, Ebony made the process simple, easy and fun. In a matter of two weeks Ebony had helped us put together what turned out to be the most magical day. The ceremony Ebony created was the perfect balance of personal, funny and light-hearted, reflecting us as a couple perfectly. To say we highly recommend Ebony would be an understatement!

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

So special and so fun! Beyond pleased that I was able to get you two married, especially after the year you had. Congratulations again Mr and Mrs Wiles! xx

14 Nov 2020

Like for many 2020 was a tough year, especially when trying to plan a wedding. We changed our wedding date at least three times and had not booked a celebrant, given we didn't know what was going to happen. Eventually we decided to move ahead with a small intimate ceremony. We found Ebony on a google search and reaching out to her was the BEST thing we did. Ebony is so personable and did everything she could to help ensure the process was smooth and made our day more special then what we could have imagined. Ebony made sure to make my family feel apart of the day, who couldn't be there due international borders being closed. This especially meant a lot to me. Since we could only have a small number of guests, we are having a proper celebration, fingers crossed in 2021. We are really looking forward to

11 Nov 2020

Ebony made the whole process so easy for us, she was so flexible and kind in the organisation and on the day gave us a beautiful, personal and warm ceremony, truly special, couldn’t recommend her highly enough

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

Oh, thank you beautiful! It was such a special day. I’m just so grateful that I got to be apart of it! X

21 Mar 2020

From the moment we met Ebony we knew she was the perfect person to marry us. We connected immediately with her bubbly, down to earth personality. She was so easy to talk to and always validated our ideas about our ceremony. Ebony made us feel 100% supported and comfortable throughout the whole marriage process. Even in the hours leading up to the ceremony, Ebony was there to support and offer reassurance in the midst of the Covid-19 restrictions that were impacting our ceremony. Ebony captured our relationship perfectly and made our ceremony not only fun and light hearted but had all our guests shedding tears. She made sure our ceremony was everything we imagined and left our guests spending the rest of the night telling us how fantastic she was! We don’t feel like Ebony was just our celebrant, we feel like she is now also our friend and wish

I was just going through your photos today, picking out some to post. OMG, they took me right back to your wedding day! It will forever go down as one of my fav's to date. Miss you guys xoxo

14 Mar 2020

We could not have asked for a better Celebrant than Ebony. She was down to earth, warm and extremely professional throughout the entire process. She was very organised and communicated with us every step of the way. I was so happy to see her on the day as she put me at ease straight away, and all our guests commented on what a lovely personalised ceremony she had put together for us that truely reflected the couple that we are. After the wedding she organised our marriage certificate for us and continued to stay in contact. Thank you for everything Ebony!

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

You are most welcome guys! I had such a great time getting to know you and sharing your love story with your family and friends on your wedding day. Stay in touch Mr and Mrs Stirling xoxo

7 Mar 2020

Ebony – thank you so much for being our celebrant on our wedding day! Our day was so full of love and joy and that’s in large part because of how you started the festivities – by recounting our story so intimately and engagingly with our family, friends and colleagues (many of who have raved about you to us!). From the moment we first met you casually for a coffee – we knew we were the best hands and felt such a great sense of rapport and warmth with you. You make the process so easy and so fun. From taking care of the administration of registering a marriage – to helping us write our vows – to crafting a ceremony that reflected exactly what we wanted – to the rehearsal - you were superb!

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

You are very welcome! It was my pleasure and privilege. Your love is incredible! It gives me goosebumps xo

29 Feb 2020

When my husband and I met Ebony we knew she was the perfect celebrant for us. She was chilled and easy going, yet professional and knowledgeable. We had no idea about what was involved and she helped up through it all. She happily replied to emails and msgs when we required clarification and checked in on us regularly to see how we were tracking. A few weeks before the wedding we rehearsed walking down the aisle. Once again, she helped us stay on track and gave us advice about ways to improve the ceremony from her past experiences. When the big day came she was a calming, friendly face that put us both at ease. Throughout the ceremony she was professional and spoke clearly. She made us feel so relaxed on such a nervous day. We cannot recommend her enough.

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

I had sooooo much fun marrying you two! Thanks for all the laughs and good times while we planned your ceremony. Stay in touch lovers xo

14 Feb 2020

I don’t know if I’ve ever met with a stranger and felt so at ease so quickly! Talking with Ebony felt like talking to an old friend, and she delivered our ceremony like she’s known us forever. Such a gorgeous, well spoken woman who had all the right touches of humour and romance. So thankful that Eb was our celebrant!

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

So much love for you two! Thank you Mr and Mrs Dahlenburg xo

16 Dec 2019

Ebony was such a dream to work with! We did a legals only ceremony but she made every minute special and did exactly what we asked. Ebony brings such a great vibe with her, she is very down to earth but also extremely accommodating. We can’t recommend her enough!

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

Who knew planning a legal's only ceremony could be so much fun?! Thank you for your kind words, it was such a pleasure to hang out and make things official for you! You're such a gorgeous couple xxx

23 Nov 2019

Ebony was amazing in every process from planning to delivering, she was easy going, prepared, professional and organised in every aspect. We were blown away with the delivery of our ceremony that Ebony put together, it was a great balance of friendliness, seriousness and humorous. She was a delight to work with and put us at ease with any questions we had. I would recommend Ebony and we thank her so much for a memorable experience.

Ebony Carver Celebrant  

How did I miss this?! So much love for the two of you. I hope you’re enjoying married life. Can’t wait to see all of the amazing things you get up to as Mr and Mrs McGowan! Xx
