Whether it's formal or lighthearted, or somewhere in between, my job is to assist you to pull together a ceremony that reflects you as a couple and also meets the legal requirements under the Marriage Act 1961. The venue, style and content of the ceremony is entirely up to you.

Planning a wedding can be overwhelming at times! I can help to remove some of that stress by assisting you to tick all the legal boxes, choose meaningful words, craft a ceremony that you are both happy with and deliver that ceremony on the day and in the manner in which you choose.

I have conducted ceremonies in many settings; parks, homes, reception venues and beaches amongst others. Large or small – I welcome it all!

My ultimate aim is to see a happy and stress-free couple not only on the day but in the lead-up to your wedding.

Paperwork & legalities

The requirements for marriage in Victoria are:

  • Completion of your Notice of Intended Marriage at least one calendar month and one day prior to the date of your wedding.
  • Producing the necessary forms of identity, such as birth certificate, divorce papers (if relevant) amongst others.

As part of my fee I take care of all of the legal requirements.

It's a cliché but 'Oh what a night!' Our wedding day was so important to us, both in terms of including all the important people in our complicated family but also in having a big old party to remember. The ceremony was fantastic, including our own vows was very special to us and the way you wove some Chinese tradition through the service was impressive! Thanks Debra, we've referred your name to friends planning their wedding next year. They were impressed too!
