Weddings

For the marriage ceremony
to meet legal obligations
there are 3 requirements
(refer the Marriage Act 1961).


The Monitum must be stated by an Authorised Marriage Celebrant


The Vows -
calling on all present to witness your intention and commitment to each other


2 witnesses over the age of 18 are to witness the marriage ceremony and sign the certificates

The rest is up to you. This is your ceremony, so be creative.
The order is basically as shown below and I am always open to suggestions!
Guests arrive - (ensure the invitations state a time that is at least 15 minutes earlier than the ceremony time)
Party 1 arrives around the same time as the guests and can mingle for a while
First half of the wedding party take their places
Party 2 enters with the rest of the wedding party
I introduce myself and welcome all
