What ever style you choose for your wedding, there are a couple of tasks you need to get sorted first, so that everything else goes smoothly.
Here are the 3 things I recommend you put top of your list-
2. Choose your celebrant.
A civil marriage ceremony allows you lots of choice and control over the style and feel for your ceremony. Before you choose your celebrant think about what you want for your ceremony. When you have confidence in your celebrant and you know that your celebrant understands what you want, you can be sure they will help set the “tone” right from the beginning of your special day, by using the words you choose and creating the feel you want.
How soon you make your bookings really depends on the date, the day of the week and the time of day you have chosen for your ceremony. If you want to book a celebrant for a peak time of year such as April, May, August, September or October and you want them available on a Saturday afternoon (or even a Friday afternoon) then book early, even 12 months in advance.
You must give your celebrant at least one month’s notice of your intention to marry. This is done by lodging a Notice of Intended Marriage, a document which your celebrant can provide. Your Notice of Intended Marriage will remain valid for 18 months, so you can plan ahead! I am often booked for wedding ceremonies more than 12 months ahead.
