*Note: round trip travel in excess of 100km from my home office in Pascoe Vale to the ceremony venue for the ceremony will incur an additional fee of $300 (incl. GST)
I’ll meet with you, so I can explain the legal requirements for getting married in Australia. We’ll fill out and sign the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM), and I’ll witness your signatures so that you can lodge it with me. That means one month from that date, I can marry you. I’ll confirm your wedding day in my diary and send you the first of two invoices. The second one is due one week before your wedding.
I’ll meet with you by FaceTime, Zoom or Whatsup, so I can explain the legal requirements for getting married in Australia. We’ll fill out the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) and I’ll sight your photo ID (eg passport). If you’re in Australia, you can get your signatures witnessed by a police officer, a JP, a barrister or solicitor, or a legally qualified medical practitioner. If you’re outside Australia, you can get your signatures witnessed by a notary public or an official from the Australian Embassy or Consulate. You can lodge the NOIM with me by emailing it to me. One month from the date I receive it, I can marry you. I’ll confirm your wedding day in my diary and send you the first of two invoices. The second one is due one week before your wedding.
I’ll send you a draft ceremony that includes all the parts of a wedding ceremony that you’re after, based on what I’ve learned about you and your wedding plans, from our first meeting. I’ll ask you to go through the first draft and make any changes you want, before you send it back to me.
In the week before your wedding, I’ll send you a copy of the legal forms, to make sure that all the necessary details are correct.
In the week before your wedding, if you wish, we’ll have a run through your wedding, to make sure we all know what’s going to happen on your wedding day.
On your wedding day, I’ll arrive in time for both of you and me to sign the Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage, just prior to your ceremony. Then I’ll deliver your ceremony – and leave you as a married couple!
I’ll submit all the necessary documents to the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages within 48 hours of your marriage. And I’ll notify you when your marriage has been registered so that you can apply for a copy of your registered marriage certificate.
Of course! I’m a marriage celebrant. I understand that not everyone wants a large wedding at a traditional chapel or wedding venue, with all the associated trappings. Some people prefer a smaller number of guests, a shorter ceremony, and a more informal, relaxed wedding – a micro wedding. If that’s you, I’d love to marry you!.
Micro wedding ceremonies are usually a compact affair. They don’t cost you a lot of money either. So my charges would depend mainly on the size and scalability of the ceremony.
I can marry you anywhere in Australia! For even though I am based in Pascoe Vale, I’d love to travel to Melbourne, Regional Victoria or even interstate to get couples together!
I’ve built a reputation as one of Melbourne’s best marriage celebrants. You can check out the testimonials on my website to know more about the ceremonies I cater to.
I love getting people married and share their special day of love. Also, I have worked with a wide range of people over the course of my career. Reach out to me for an authentic and budget-friendly wedding ceremony.
Yes, I work as a full-time wedding celebrant. I can spend as much time as you’d need to plan out the ceremony for you. This would involve multiple drafting and redrafting sessions, paperwork and more.
You can reach out to me via a contact form or an email. Or if you’re comfortable drop me a call on the number provided! I will get back to you as soon as possible and then we can take it from there.
I prefer meeting my clients beforehand to establish a personal touch. So, how about a cup of coffee or some dinner to know each other better?
