Please note - this is a Wedding Page. If you'd like to visit my blog, where you'll find masses of information about getting married in the ACT and surrounds, and getting married in Australia in general, click here. My latest wedding news and photos are on my facebook page. I also put photos on Pinterest.
If you both wish to live in Australia as a married couple and if you are in Australia and your partner is overseas, they will need a Prospective Marriage Visa. Applying for a visa is a long process. Please note that after many years of helping many couples with their visa applications, while one of them is living overseas, I no longer provide this service.

The service I'll give you is beautifully simple and simply beautiful. Even though the ceremony is short and sweet, and mostly comprises the legal obligations of the Australian Marriage Act, there are several opportunities to personalise it. I will help you with this.
I can also help you find an interpreter and witnesses.
If I am your celebrant, you will take home with you, your wedding ceremony, printed in the font of your choice and your personal Marriage Certificate (also in the font of your choice). I will also advise you about purchasing a certificate online from the Registrar's Office, once your marriage has been registered in Australia. It can be sent to your overseas address.
Please use the email contact form to let me know your plan. I'd love to help your dream of getting married in Australia become a wonderful and memorable reality.
