Follow the easy step to step flow below. If you have any queries along the way, feel free to flick me an email.
As soon as you've lodged your booking form, and paid the deposit, the Notice of Intended Marriage is the next step. The form is easy to complete, and I can sign at our meeting, or alternatively, you are able to ask a Justice of the Peace to sign. If you are overseas, the required signatory is listed on the form. As for your ID, you can scan through your drivers licences, and either your birth certificates or passports (or bring these with you to our meeting).
Tip: If you've never been married before, use the term 'Never Validly Married' under 'Conjugal status'. In the section 'Mother's maiden name in full' this means your mother's full name, including her maiden name, not just her maiden name.
Please take time to read this pamphlet provided by the Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department, full of useful and important information when making the decision to marry.
3. Celebrant Code of Practice
As an authorised marriage celebrant I abide by the Celebrant Code of Practice. You can find the code in Schedule 2 of the Marriage Regulations 2017.
If you have any unresolved concerns or complaints about my services as a marriage celebrant, you can find more information about making a complaint from the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department at www.ag.gov.au.

If you have booked the Celebrant + Photographer package, please fill in this form. You may need a glass of wine or two. I'm not judging. At all.
Fill in the marriage certificate application form and hand to me at the rehearsal. Don't forget your identification - I just need to sight it to sign off on the form. Also remember to fill in the payment details (unless the fee has been included on your invoice).
