Some questions you may have;
How much notice do we need to allow for, before planning a wedding?
Often, couples focus on booking the venue, the photographer, and sorting the dress as the first priorities, and then can leave the formal ceremony planning later in the process. Legally, you are required to provide a formal months notice, in the form of a Notice Of Intent to Marry. It's important to get this properly documented, before you proceed with the wedding. Any celebrant can help you with this, and there is all the info you need on www.ag.gov.au
We want to have a less traditional wedding than most, and want to be really creative in what we do - is this possible?
YES!!! This is also really exciting! Most people believe that you have to stick to a traditonal script for a ceremony, ut the truth of it is, that usually only about 20% of a ceremony tht you see, is the legally required stuff. I love helping people create a ceremony off the tradional path, and can talk to you about tailoring a ceremony, perfect for the two of you!
Do you rates differ for mid-week weddings?
Yes! As there are only 52 weekends a year, there are limited dates that can impact fee strucurters for most celebrants. Mid-week weddings are absolutely about 30% cheaper, for my fees, as well as most services associated with weddings. These are becoming more and more popular, and I'd love to talk to you about your date, and locking in a Monday to Friday wedding.
We only want a very small and intimate ceremony. Can we just get married with you and be done with it?
Not quite, but nearly. We need 2 qualifying witnesses to the wedding, in additon to myself. So there will always be 5 of us. But we can do that at a dinner table, on a pacnic blanket, at the beach, before you bungee jump together, or in your dining room at home, having a cheese platter! The scene and how we do it is open to your imagination, as long as we have the important legal requirements covered, we can make it as low key as you like.
