Congratulations on your engagement and welcome to the wedding journey.
Whether it’s an intimate exchange between you both, at my home office, in my garden, on the beach, or a grand affair, I’d love to be a part of it. I’ve been told I have a dry sense of humour, but I also know how important it is to be dignified when the occasion demands it. There should also be room for humour, smiles, laughter, tears and joy.
I promise to care about you and listen to your needs so that your unique service will express your story and celebrate your happiness. I want us to build such a great rapport with each other, that on your “big day” you feel confident and relaxed, knowing that I will be taking care of the legal responsibilities so that you can enjoy your very special day!
The service itself can be as short or as long as you wish, and we can include as many people, and as many rituals as you like.
I’d love to hear from you (we can catch up obligation-free at your home or at a Cafe close by) so that we can chat about how you would like your special day to sound.
Shortening of time
If you need to get married in a hurry, there are a couple of hoops we will need to jump through. Only a prescribed authority (the Department of Births, Deaths and Marriages) can authorise the marriage to occur within the required 30-day period.
We will need to complete a NOIM as soon as possible. I will provide you with a letter to the BDM stating that I’m available for your date. You will then take those documents to the BDM for consideration and authorisation. If approved, they will provide you with a signature on your NOIM which authorises me to perform the marriage within the 30 days required by law.
These are the only situations where this will be allowed
