How do I play music at my wedding?
I have a PA System that you are welcome to use but you must provide your own person to actually play the music on the day.
Will you dress to suit my wedding?
Yes – I will always endeavour to fit in with your dress code and colour palette.
How long does the ceremony take?
Approximately 30 minutes, but that depends upon the length of the readings, music etc.
Do I have to memorise my vows?
No, not at all, hardly anybody does. You will repeat them after me, so there is no stress involved.
Can I write my own vows?
Yes of course, however if you require help I am there as backup and remember there are legal requirements that must be included.
What should I bring to my first appointment?
If born in Australia – Birth Certificate.

If previously married – Certificate of Divorce from any previous marriage or Death Certificate from a previous spouse.
Photo ID – just to prove that you are who you say you are.
Who can I have as my 2 Witnesses?
Providing your 2 Witnesses are over the age of 18 years, you can have anyone you want including witnesses from overseas.
How much notice do I need to give to get legally married in Australia?
It is a legal requirement to complete a Notice of Intention to Marry Form. Marriage can take place no earlier than one month & one day after the authorised marriage celebrant receives this form. It is valid for 18 months.
At least one of you (Bride or Groom) must sign the form in the presence of a Civil Marriage Celebrant or another authorised person e.g. lawyer, doctor etc (listed on the form).
