QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What is the process of getting married?

Book a venue for your reception and ceremony.

Confirm the date  then book in and complete a Notice Of Intended Marriage with your celebrant.

Have two meetings with your celebrant or more to plan and prepare for the wedding ceremony.

Have a rehearsal if required.

Your Wedding takes place beautifully, as planned.

I have not been married before and would like to know what legal paperwork is required to get married?

A passport or an original birth certificate and a driver's license will be sufficient to complete the Notice Of Intended Marriage (NOIM).

Many of the questions on the NOIM ask about answers that are displayed on a birth certificate so please bring that if you have it, rather than a passport.

Once the Notice Of Intended Marriage is signed and witnessed by me, you cannot marry for one month from the date it was signed.

So if you see me on the 24th of March, the first day you are legally allowed to marry is the 24th of April.

The NOIM is valid for 18 months so you can marry anytime for the next 18 months.

I've been married before so what legal documents do i need to get married?

If you have been married before you will obviously need to bring your divorce certificate to prove you are free to marry. If your previous husband or wife passed away you will need to provide the death certificate.

Can we have a really low key and simple ceremony?

Absolutely! For some couples formality and an elaborate wedding just isn't their style. They would prefer a very short and relaxing ceremony and would feel too nervous or anxious in a formal setting. Your wedding can be as low key as you like and some of the most beautiful weddings I have ever done are backyard weddings. Your wedding, your way is my motto!

Can I speak to you regarding my specific needs for my wedding ceremony?

I am completely approachable and am open and flexible to all of your requests and explanations.

Some couples have difficulties with family members and friends and a little chat can relieve a lot of stress.The couple may want to warn me about a possible problem for example a sudden change to the bridal party or an embarressing family member. My lips are sealed but forewarned is forarmed.

Are celebrants religious and do I have to have religion in my wedding?

Civil Celebrants may be religious personally but they are creating a Civil ceremony for you and will not impose any religious elements into your ceremony unless you specifically request it. I am not religious but have done religious weddings for those couples who wish it so. However, most ceremonies I perform are not religious in any way.

I am from another country and I would like to add rituals from my country into my ceremony, would that be acceptable to you?

I have done many ceremonies where  rituals from other countries are included into a civil ceremony.

I am completely flexible and will add anything you like as long it is not insulting to anyone.

Some examples of cultural inclusions are :-

Feeding each other sweets at the end of a ceremony to symbolise a sweet life ahead

Groom putting a gold necklace around the bride's neck

Sharing a special bread with symbols of a happy marriage made of dough

Smashing a glass underfoot 

Walking under a special archway

Standing under a canopy for the ceremony

Everyone washing the bride and groom's hands with blessed water

The red thread of destiny and fate.

Call and ask me about these beautiful rituals. Mob: 0414 654 062 They certainly make weddings unique and fascinating.
