Today's marriage ceremony can be as simple or as complex as you would like.

For the marriage to be legal there are 3 legal requirements to be performed during the ceremony - the Monitum must be stated by an Authorised Marriage Celebrant - The Vows , calling on all present to witness your commitment to each other & 2 witnesses over the age of 18 to witness & sign your certificates.

The rest is up to you. This is your ceremony so be as creative as you wish.

The order is basically this 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 and their support crew arrive around the same time as the guests and can mingle for a while
  • First half of the bridal party take their places
  • Processional music and the entrance
  • Party 2 enters accompanied by the person who will give them away (if required)
  • I begin by introducing myself and welcoming all
  • "Giving away"
  • Begin the ceremony
  • 1st Reading
  • Monitum
  • The asking (I do part)
  • Vows
