If you are interstate or overseas prior to your wedding we can complete all arrangements via email, telephone or post.

In the week before your wedding (or on the day) we can meet so that I can sight your birth certificates etc, sign the prepared documents and run through your ceremony (where to stand, entrance, and so on). If you would like to we can hold a full rehearsal with your entire bridal party.

If it is not practical for you both to have your signatures witnessed at the same time, the notice can be accepted with just the intended Bride or Grooms signature only.

Once lodged, the notice is valid for eighteen months.

When you lodge your form with me a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit of $150A is required (cheques made payable to Diane Simmons)
