Now that you have chosen to have a civil wedding ceremony, it will give you the freedom of choice to reflect your feelings, beliefs and personality into your service.
I can offer you a sample manual to select your wedding ceremony from, but don’t be afraid if you want to write your own vows, add your own verses, readings, music or cultural symbols so that the service is a reflection of the way you are together. I will also give you a questionnaire to do so I can collect information about you both and add it in the service as a ‘Love Story’. Of course there are legal obligations within the wedding ceremony, I will go through these with you when you meet with me.
I am here to advise you on other aspects of your wedding day and welcome any enquiries you may have so that your wedding ceremony is everything you want and more.
Both parties must be over 18 years of age
To lodge The Notice of Intended Marriage with me you will need:
To be married within Australia, the Notice of Intended Marriage has to be lodged one month before you are married i.e. if you put the notice in on 28th June you can be legally married on 28th July. You can lodge the Notice of Intended Marriage up to 18 months before your wedding date.
The Notice of Intended Marriage will be drawn up by me and kept in my files until the day you are married - it will then be sent to Births, Deaths & Marriages along with the other documents signed and witnessed on your wedding day.
