For many reasons a registry office style of wedding may suit you more, be it financial restrictions, time restrictions or just a matter of individual choice.
Often couples just want to have the legalities taken care of then have a party at a later date with family and friends. If you would like this style of service, which is minimal in nature yet can still be very heartfelt and memorable; I can offer it to you from my beautiful office in Doonan.
My package offers a 30 minute meeting to lodge the NOIM and paperwork, at least a month before the wedding date and a 30 minute ceremony at the time of your choice*, in which the legal statements and the exchange of your own written vows and rings takes place. You walk away as husband and wife, with a big smile from ear to ear.
You and your two witnesses (over the age of 18) and up to ten guests could come to my office in the morning and then possibly off out to lunch or, if you prefer, an afternoon wedding followed by a celebratory dinner, a river cruise or Gondola ride, with champagne and chocolates or just a beautiful walk along the beach for just the two of you.
If you cannot meet with me before the day I can send all the necessary paperwork for you to complete and return to me.
*The times available are Monday – Friday 9.30am -5.30pm or Saturday 9am- 12 noon. It is possible to have a Saturday afternoon or Sunday wedding, however an extra booking fee would apply.
For elopement weddings, (just bride and groom) I can organize witnesses for you at a small charge.
Please contact me if you are interested in booking with me as your celebrant for this type of wedding service.
