How It Works

As of any other marriages, getting married in Newcastle, NSW, requires you to complete the legal documentation and plan for the ceremony.

Typically, when I work with couples, I like to meet with the both of you. This can be done in person or via Whatapp Video call to save you coming to me in Salt Ash, NSW.

  • In our meeting, we need to complete the paperwork and equally importantly, I want to get to know you so that I can attune the celebration to the two of you. Also, you can check whether I seem to be the right fit for you.
  • We discuss your wishes for the celebration: your choice of music, meaningful readings, your vows, and any rituals you may want to include. At the end of this meeting, we’ll have a very good idea of what your ceremony will be like. I’ll take my notes and write a script for the ceremony and confirm with you that everything is perfect.
  • On the day of your wedding, I will make sure everything is set up as needed, including the PA system and the wedding register. I will do everything I can to make sure that the day is as stress-free as possible for you while keeping the ceremony organized and on schedule. Weddings I officiate are relaxed, joyful events where the couple feels embraced by the love and support of those in attendance. My goal is for you to enjoy the day fully, confident that I’ll look after all the details.
  • I make sure that all the paperwork has been looked after (for name changes and registering the wedding) so that you can confidently jump into your wedded life.
