Questions and Answers

Can I customise my own vows?

Athene Thompson - Marriage Celebrant

Yes you can. You are required by law to use particualar wording but you can add your own words after that to personalise your vows.

What is the best way to contact you?

Athene Thompson - Marriage Celebrant

You can contact me anytime on the phone, via my email address, on my facebook page or through this website. I will get back to you within the same day of your contact. 

Do you travel outside of the Yarra/Dandenong Ranges?

Athene Thompson - Marriage Celebrant

Yes I am prepared to travel to your wedding destination outside of these areas. 

How quickly do I get my wedding certificate? Is this certificate a registered document?

Athene Thompson - Marriage Celebrant

The couple's marriage certificate is signed by the couple, the witnesses and the celebrant on the day and presented at the wedding. 

To get a registered copy of the marriage certificate for legal reasons the couple must apply to Births, Deaths and Marriages for an official marriage certificate.  Allow up to 20 days for this to arrive. 

All couple marriage certificates presented to the couple at all weddings are not registered documents. 

What legal forms do we have to fill out?

Athene Thompson - Marriage Celebrant

The first meeting we have together is an informal chat about what sort of ceremony you would like on your wedding day. 

If you decide to go ahead with the official booking then at our next meeting The Notice of Intended Marriage "NOIM" is filled out and signed by the couple.

Just prior to the wedding the "No Legal Impediments to the Marriage" form is filled out.

On the wedding day 3 official forms are signed by the couple, the witnesses and the celebrant.

- The Official Certificate of Marriage

- The Couples Certificate (this not a registered document)

- The Marriage Register

She was very good! Her attention to detail was amazing, and she was so good with working with us and our time schedule. She was confident in asking us questions to make sure our ceremony was what we wanted, she's awesome!

Where do I start. Athene went above and beyond to make sure our event was perfect. She thought of everything. She made us feel relaxed and comfortable. She did a fantastic job calming me before it all began. I would highly recommend Athene for any ceremony.

If you’re looking for a beautiful celebrant who will go above and beyond, really listen and get to know exactly who you are and what you want, then you cannot go past Athene Thompson! Athene was warm and kind and her calming energy and attention to detail made everything so perfect. I could not recommend her more!

From the first meeting we knew Athene was the right celebrant for our wedding. She asked good questions to prompt us to think about exactly what we wanted. Athene shared she has a background in writing and poetry and this showed in her wording and arrangement.
