As a Registered Civil Celebrant, I am responsible for ensuring that your marriage is valid and registered according to the Marriage Act 1961.
Once you have chosen your celebrant the first legal step is to lodge a Notice of Intent at least 1 month prior to your set wedding date (this may also be completed up to 18 months wedding date with your chosen celebrant.)
This document becomes valid once it is completed & your signature witnessed it is then held by your celebrant until after your ceremony.
Paperwork that is required to be sighted & recorded prior to a ceremony.
- Birth Certificate. or Passports
- Divorce Papers, Death Certificates
- Current Drivers Licences
- Current proof of age card.
- All documents must be originals
You may wish to download a copy of a Notice of Intent from BDM or I can email you a copy, I also have copies for couples to complete.
Once your ceremony has been written, you may wish for a rehearsal, this can be arranged either in a park or at your venue.
My PA is available for your use for not only your ceremony but also your music with both a CD & IPod connection.
