Planning a wedding is exciting and many couples want to book their date before they meet with me. Your interview must be at least 1 calendar month before your wedding day
Parties to a marriage are required to give an authorised celebrant at least one month’s written notice prior to the solemnisation of their marriage. This notice is known as the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM). The NOIM must be given to the celebrant no later than one month before the date of the marriage.Here are some examples that explain the meaning of one month as it applies to the NOIM.
If you are not sure about the marriage process, I will provide professional advice and information based on years of experience and expert celebrant training.

I am obliged to comply with the Marriage Act 1961 and other laws of the Commonwealth and of this State, and to be on the lookout to prevent and avoid unlawful discrimination in the provision of marriage celebrant services. The Act sets out a uniform scheme for the solemnization of marriages by authorized celebrants.
Ceremony comes from the Latin “caerimonia,” which means sacredness, reverence, sacred rite; a formal religious or sacred observance; a solemn rite; also any formal act or observance. The term sacred means designated to be of highest value; regarded with reverence; entitled to veneration or respect by association with divinity or divine things; that which is considered hallowed, holy.
