Frequently Asked Question to Marriage Celebrant in Melbourne 2018-01-08T18:31:59+11:00

Any Questions?

Anyone you like providing they are over the age of 18 years. They may be from overseas.

Accordingly to suit the formality/informality of your wedding- Elegantly, appropriately and relatively neutral. It’s your day not mine. It is my intention to complement the bridal party.

No I will ask that the captain take me back to the pick up point or else I will get a water taxi to take me back to land. (The water taxi would be at your expense)

The Notice of Intended Marriage is valid for 18 months, I am only too happy to reschedule the wedding with you.

Yes, I would encourage this as it adds dimension to your Ceremony ensuring that your ceremony is personalised and unique to you and your partner.

This is personal, 1- 2 is appropriate and ensures that the Ceremony is not too long.

The average time is 25 – 30 minutes but this may vary depending on how many readings/poems etc. you include.

No this is a personal choice and is not a requirement.

Again this is personal. It can be anyone you like.

Absolutely – these days anything goes, it’s your day you, your choice.

No, is not fashionable to be late! Consider your guests, who may be elderly and become hot, tired and thirsty. Your reception, caterers, photographers and musicians are all running to a time schedule. If the Ceremony starts late so does everything else.

Providing you have written approval from the relevant Council to hold the Ceremony, you have the right to ask them to move. I am happy to do this on your behalf.

Yes chairs are a good idea, approx 12 chairs, is a good number, mostly for the elderly and family. Unless you have the exact amount of chairs as people most people prefer to stand.

No I will leave soon after the ceremony, quietly and discreetly, occasionally staying for a drink.

Unless I am on deaths door I will attend to your Ceremony. In the event that I am too ill, I have a wonderful group of celebrants I can call on who would perform your ceremony.

The appropriate thing to do would be to continue on with the photographs and then onto the Reception venue. We could perform the Ceremony at the Reception once I arrive.

Her maiden name on all documentation.

Her maiden name as this is her legal name until after the Wedding day, once the Marriage has been registered with Births Deaths and Marriages.
