Why only weekdays?
Offering weekday packages allows us to secure you the best vendors at a great price. Plus it means you don’t have to plan and book everything over a year out as top vendors book out early, especially for peak times.
Can we get married with Weekday Wedded Bliss on the weekend?
Sure, there are just extra costs involved and each request will need to be quoted individually taking into consideration the availability of the venue and vendors, and the season. Contact us for a custom quote.
How soon can we get married?
To be married in Australia you need to give at least one month and no more than 18 months notice. This is done by completing and signing a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM), having it witnessed and lodging it with your celebrant.
Where do we get the NOIM?

Who can witness the NOIM?
Your celebrant, provided you can meet with them to do so between 1 and 18 months prior to your ceremony. One pre-ceremony meeting is included in all our packages.
If that’s not possible, check out the below…
In Australia – an authorised celebrant, a Commissioner for Declarations under the Statutory Declarations Act 1959, a justice of the peace, a barrister or solicitor, a legally qualified medical practitioner, or a member of the Australian Federal Police or the police force of a State or Territory.
Outside Australia – an Australian Consular Officer, an Australian Diplomatic Officer, a notary public, an authorised employee of the Commonwealth or an authorised employee of the Australian Trade Commission.
How do we get our NOIM to Weekday Wedded Bliss?
If you’re not completing with your celebrant you can email it to us at email@example.com
You MUST bring the original NOIM on the day or we can’t marry you.
What else do we need to consider?
To be legally married in Australia you must be over 18 years old, you cannot be married to anyone else at the time, both parties must be consenting to the marriage and you cannot be intoxicated at the time of the ceremony (both the last points are at the celebrant’s discretion).
What else do we need to do?
In order for us to take care of all the legalities of getting married, there are a few things we need to see. If you’re meeting with your celebrant before the ceremony, you’ll bring these along then. If you’re not meeting your celebrant beforehand you MUST bring these with you on the day.
Passport (does not have to be current) or;
An original birth certificate and drivers licence/proof of age car/ID card (must be current).
- If you’ve been married before:
Certificate of Death/Divorce
How do we book?
Simply complete contact form and we’ll get back to you to let you know if your date/time is available.
What do we need to bring on the day?
- Your (sober) selves. We can’t marry you if you are intoxicated.
- Two witnesses who are over 18 and speak/understand English (we can arrange these for a small additional fee if you don’t have anyone to bring along)
- Your ID and relevant documents (if we have not already sighted them)
- Your original signed and witnessed NOIM (if we don’t already have it)
Without all your ID and legal documentation we cannot legally marry you.
What time do we need to arrive?
You must arrive 30 minutes prior to your ceremony to meet your celebrant and take care of all the legalities before go-time!
How many guests can we invite?
Each package has a set guest limit. If you would like to invite more than that, let us know and we’ll work out how that affects the package price.
Will there be music?
Absolutely! We can provide this, or if music is your jam, bring along your own playlist on a device and you’re good to go.
