How it all works
Coffee, wine or just happy chats.....
lets catch up have a chat in person where I can give you some information to read thru and we can talk about the many options that would make your day magical. I'm based in Middleton but happy to meet in McLaren Vale or Mt Barker.
Booking confirmation.....
Once you decide that I am the celebrant to help officially make you a married couple, a $450 booking fee secures the booking.
After answering 
Some questions about the what makes you guys love each other, I  get to writing a ceremony that is totally about the both of you and we work thru some drafts and options until you are happy with the wording and story.
Although a rehearsal is not compulsory its sometimes nice to just go over the logistics of the ceremony. That way on the day things run smoothly. A rehearsal is also usually the time the declaration of no legal impediment is signed as well as the chance to discuss and solve any last minute concerns you both have for the big day.
Legal Paperwork..
I submit all of the legal paperwork to B.D.M, Including 1 copy of  the marriage Certificate, The Notice of Intended marriage and Declaration of No Legal Impediment. This is required by me within 14 days. 
Applying for a marriage certificate 
If you wish to change your name after marriage you can apply to Births Deaths and Marriages for a copy of the marriage certificate (Cost of around $50).
