Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be.
(Robert Browning 1812 - 1889)

...."It was a great pleasure to have you there to help us celebrate such a very special day in our lives. We hope you had a lovely time and enjoyed it as much as us! We couldn't have asked for anything more!" ...Kim & Kent

on your engagement!

Your wedding ceremony deserves the care that I can provide, to ensure the eternal memories are the ones that fill your heart with warmth and happiness.

At our initial meeting, we can discuss what you'd like included in your celebration. As an authorised Marriage Celebrant, it is my role to ensure all the legal paperwork is correctly done and that the ceremony is legally performed in accordance with Australian law. All of your requirements and any likes or dislikes - providing we observe all legal requirements, will be considered.

If you wish to design your own vows, I can also help to guide you on ways to construct meaningful vows that are specific to you.

After receiving your booking confirmation and deposit, you will then be emailed a rough draft to review and comment on. This usually takes a lot of feedback from both parties, and I have found email to be an invaluable tool for this very requirement. It's my aim for you to be totally happy with the end product, so you will not be limited to a particular number of communications.

Around a week before the wedding, I will meet with you for a rehearsal of the ceremony (if required) either onsite or at home. That way everyone knows where they will be standing etc on the big day - and it also gives us an opportunity to iron out any changes / alterations if any.

I have a PA system so everyone present will be able to hear your ceremony, as well as a table with white cloth and covered chair for use to sign the certificates.

At the end of the ceremony, you will be officially presented with your Marriage Certificate and I will leave a keepsake copy of the ceremony words for you to have as a memorial of the day.

After the ceremony, I will lodge your paperwork with the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages and can apply for your Registered Marriage Certificate on your behalf at the same time if you require. This is an extra fee charged by the Registry Office depending on the style of certificate you require and the quantity etc. Most institutions eg: Passports Office, banks , superannuation funds, paymasters will require seeing your "Registered Marriage Certificate" these days for you to legally change your name.

All feedback is important to me in the quest for constant improvement, so I will provide you with a feedback form (post ceremony) for your valuable comments. My ambition is to make your day truly wonderful.
