Where can a Wedding Ceremony take place?

In fact, in Australia, a marriage ceremony can take place anywhere, indoors or outdoors. You can have your ceremony either in a garden or a park, on the beach, a function venue, a restaurant or even in your own home or backyard. There is no restriction on where a wedding ceremony can take place.

Can the couple include any readings or poems?

I will definitely encourage any family or friends’ involvement in the ceremony. There are many lovely ways in which we can get family and friends involved. They can select a popular piece of poetry from my collection or anywhere else, or they might want to write something personal about the couple that is shared on the day. We just have to make sure that the content accurately reflects the couple, and that those doing readings are comfortable with public readings.

How long does a wedding ceremony take?

Usually, a wedding ceremony takes between 20 – 30 minutes. What can make a wedding ceremony longer or shorter, are the number of readings and poems you might like to include. As well as any rituals you can incorporate into the ceremony. I will guide you and present you with many options. You also might like to include your own vows.  

Can we play music at the wedding?

You can play any type of music off my PA system, or have musicians at the sight. I will advise you on various music options in advance. The bride can walk down the aisle to your favourite song, or sign your marriage certificate with your favourite band playing in the background. There are no restrictions when it comes to music during your wedding ceremony at all and so you can choose something that you both love, as there are definitely no limits to your options.

Can we say our own Wedding Vows?

After reciting the required legal wedding vows, you can then say/read your own vows. You can write and put together your own promises, feelings, wishes and commitment to each other. I will also send you my FREE complimentary package. In it, you can find a huge collection of wedding vows which I collected over the years to help inspire you when writing your own vows. 
You can write your vows together, you can write them separately, you can email me together or separately. Or you can include a poem in your vows that expresses you and your partner.  I will then include your vows in the script for your wedding ceremony to make it extra special for you. 

Do we need to exchange rings?

Legally in Australia, a couple does not have to exchange rings. At the same time, it is a wedding symbolic tradition still kept by most couples. Usually, the couple also exchanges some words while putting the ring on the one they love. Words which reflect their feelings and aspiration for the marriage. The rings symbolize everlasting love and as the rings have no end, neither is the love between the couple. 

Who should walk the bride down the aisle?

There are actually no set rules for that. Traditionally, it always used to be the dad who walked his daughter down the aisle. But is for any reason that is not the way you want it to be, there are other options. You might want to choose both your parents to walk you down the aisle, it can be your mum, stepdad, brother, uncle. Or you might want to walk alone. It is all going to be your choice.

Simple Step-by-Step How to Choose a Marriage Celebrant

So here are some guidelines: 

  • A wedding celebrant who is qualified, experienced, professional and knows all the legal requirements of marriage in Australia.
  • Meet the celebrant in person to know whether you get along and connect and that they can provide you with the much-needed support and assistance.
  • Ask questions and make sure you feel comfortable to keep on asking. The celebrant should have good communication skills, be friendly and warm. Being able to communicate with your celebrant is critical as well as a  celebrant who you can easily contact.
  • Can the celebrant advise you and guide you thoroughly so you don’t need to worry about things such as how to choose your vows and rituals, Legal lodgements as well as registering your marriage with the BDM, Order of events, Clear details about fees and what it includes.
  • Read their reviews and testimonials.
  • Make sure you get to proof your ceremony wording before the wedding day.
  • Check that the wedding celebrant has insurance.
  • Make sure that the celebrant agrees with you writing your own vows, on top of the legal ones that are prescribed and compulsory, as well as helping you get started.
  • Make sure they have a good PA system.
  • You should be able to also play your own music on the celebrant’s PA.
  • Check what are the legal wording/ requirements that have to be included in the script.

Hi Orna,
Thank you so much for your time and effort to make our wedding ceremony so special. It was lovely to meet you and Andrew and also we would like to thank you for the beautiful photos!

T & G wedding ceremony, July 2015
 
Orna has been a dream to deal with. She constantly kept in contact to ensure that our wedding ceremony was the best it could be. She offered helpful advice while steering us in the right direction that allowed our day to run smoothly.
So due to her caring and friendly personality made what seemed like a stressful time turn into a fun and exciting experience. She was also very accommodating in changing little details. And so made our ceremony reflect us as a couple.
Orna is a rare gem and it reflects in her work while you can see she truly loves what she does.

Hi Orna!
Thanks for making our wedding day so special. Everyone thought you were excellent and we couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant.
thanks/regards Brett & Jennifer May 2015

 

Thank you Orna – we are very grateful to have had such a wonderful marriage celebrant on our wedding day. We were immediately impressed after our first contact with you. As you responded to our questions super-quickly while helping to address any doubts or apprehensions we had. Hence, the whole process was a lot easier with your assistance, while we couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. You were warm, easy-going, organised, and clearly committed to making sure that the process leading up to the wedding was smooth, and hence, that the ceremony itself was relaxed and special.

Thanks again! Lots of love,
Francis & Jess 29/2/15

I just want to thank Orna and also her husband for making our wedding night a one to remember. Not only that our bus had broken down on its way to the cruise delaying everything. But also Orna and her husband waited around until we got there.
Hence Orna you, and your husband made our wedding a one to remember.
Thank you so much.
