Simple Weddings provides perhaps the most simple, straightforward Wedding Celebrant service available. Please be aware that by choosing Simple Weddings, you are choosing a no-nonsense, brief and simple wedding ceremony. Our aim is merely to provide a legal wedding and any associated paperwork (such as a letter that you might require for migration purposes) as promptly and briefly as possible. Accordingly, our fee is perhaps the lowest available ($199 for weekdays in Adelaide or Wednesdays in Melbourne) and is much less than even the Registry Office (Births, Deaths and Marriages) charges to conduct a legal wedding. Our $199 price applies only to weddings conducted during available dates, Monday to Friday; and only at specific locations.Our fee for a Saturday Wedding in Melbourne is $299 (we believe the best price in Melbourne for a Saturday Wedding; and a Weekend (or weekday evening) wedding in Adelaide is $299 (the best price you’ll find there, also).Other locations or days are available upon request in which case additional fees will apply, please phone 1300 668 459 to enquire.VISA LETTER A letter for lodging your NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage) form will be issued at no extra cost if you book a wedding. Just tick the appropriate box to request one when booking your wedding. If at some stage you decide to change the date of your wedding, a RE-BOOKING FEE of $50 is payable.PROCESS: Here is the process which will occur if you book your wedding through Simple Weddings:
- Choose a date and time here
- Enter your details
- Pay for your ceremony (Visa, Mastercard)
- Download the Notice of Intention to Marry form (provided when you book) fill it in and return
- Provide scans of all applicable ID documents (we will guide you on all items required)
- Arrive for your wedding ceremony at the chosen date and time. Provide original versions of all applicable ID documents. By law, you are required to have at least two witnesses. They can be anyone as long as they are over 18 years old, you will need to provide these. Additional guests are also welcome, of course.
- Your wedding ceremony takes place. (approx. 15 minutes usually) During the ceremony, you will need to sign three Certificates of Marriage which Simple Weddings will provide on the day. Immediately following your ceremony you will receive one of these Certificate of Marriage. You will be legally married at that point.
- As soon as your ceremony concludes, your wedding papers will be delivered directly to the relevant Births, Deaths & Marriages office for registration.
- Therefore if you require a “REGISTERED” copy of your marriage certificate (as is usually required for immigration purposes), you can apply for it (from Births Deaths and Marriages) immediately after the wedding ceremony.
