Let’s embark on the journey of planning your ceremony and the wedding of your dreams!

STEP 1 - Get in Touch

Connect with us effortlessly! Our 24/7 service support ensures prompt responses via email, phone, or social channels. We’ll kick off with a simple chat, asking key questions. Following this, we’ll coordinate a convenient meeting time, either in person at our Henley Beach Head Office or virtually. Choosing a wedding celebrant is deeply personal—we’re here to stand by you during the most intimate, nerve-wracking, and exciting moments of your special day.

STEP 2 - Lets Meet

Let’s bring your vision to life! During our discussion, we’ll delve into your ideas, plans, and what holds significance for you. This is the perfect opportunity to gauge if our Celebrant aligns with your preferences and to outline the elements for your ceremony. We’re here to understand your wedding style and offer tailored recommendations. Our Celebrants bring a blend of fun, engagement, and a relaxed, family-friendly delivery to make your celebration memorable. With a comprehensive planning system, checklists, and contingency plans, we ensure no detail is overlooked. You’ll receive tools, timelines, and sample ceremonies month by month, empowering you to plan confidently with the very best by your side!

STEP 3 - The Legals

We’ll guide you through the legalities, ceremony flow, and share valuable tips for your big day. Assistance with the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form is part of our service, ensuring it’s completed and signed within the required timeframe. The NOIM must be signed no later than 31 days before your wedding and no earlier than 18 months before your wedding date. The ‘Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage’ form is typically signed close to the wedding, often during rehearsals. On your wedding day, we’ll present the ‘Official Certificate of Marriage’ for your signature along with a beautiful Certificate (Form 15).

STEP 4 - We're Ready

Let’s rehearse for an exciting prelude to your big day! It’s a fantastic way to connect with your family, friends, and bridal party as we fine-tune your ceremony details. We’ll role-play, cover music cues, and work through timings and positioning. It’s a fun and exhilarating experience! On the wedding day, we arrive at least 45 minutes before the start, easing the nerves of those awaiting the moment. Our celebrants, skilled in entertainment, engage the audience, building anticipation. We set up the PA system, conduct a sound check, and coordinate with everyone involved before you’re ready to begin. Trust us to ensure a smooth and captivating start to your special day.

STEP 5 - Let's Celebrate Love!

The moment you’ve eagerly anticipated has arrived – it’s time to forget all the planning stress and revel in the magic of getting married! As we reach the pinnacle of your meticulously planned ceremony, the atmosphere is charged with excitement. With the heartfelt exchange of vows and rings, the spotlight is on you, your two witnesses, and your celebrant as you join in signing the legal documents, officially sealing the bond of matrimony. Now, let the celebration begin – it’s showtime! Say “I do” and embark on a lifetime of love and happiness, surrounded by the joyous energy of this unforgettable moment!

STEP 6 - Post Marriage Links

At the conclusion of your ceremony, the legal documents are signed by you, your two witnesses, and your celebrant. The Certificate of Marriage (Form 15) is then yours, marking the official start of your journey as newlyweds. Immediately following, we take care of the online registration with Births, Deaths Marriages and submit all necessary legal documents for a seamless and efficient process.
