Exemption to COVID 19 Gathering Restrictions.
NSW Health offers an opportunity to apply for an exemption to the restrictions to getting married, in "exceptional or unforeseen circumstances". These circumstances are not specific and will be dealt with on a "case by case basis".
If you feel that you have "exceptional or unforeseen circumstances" requiring you to get married now, our suggestion is that you may want to consider making an application.
To see more details and to make an application read below.
You will be asked for:
Title, Name, Email and Current Address.
Event Start Date: Please select a date that meets your "exceptional or unforeseen circumstances".
Event Start Date: Same as above
Expected number of attendees at the proposed event : 5
Reason for proposed exemption (e.g. what are the exceptional circumstances?). This is specific to your "exceptional or unforeseen circumstances". The reason why you need to get married now and not delay any longer.
Details of the enquiry or request. Include any details you feel will help your application including Location. Please use the location you originally booked. Also identify that the ceremony will be performed by a COVID Safe Business - Simple Ceremonies.
Type of Gathering. Wedding
Upload files. Include any documents that support your application and you can also include our COVID Safe Certificate. Click to download
After submitting your application
If your application is considered to meet the Exemption requirements, you will be asked for further details. Such as name of celebrant and witness to be attending. It may take some time to receive confirmation of your application. One couple we recently married took over a week, but in these crazy times that could vary significantly.
Only once you are at this stage please contact us and we can finalise dates, times and celebrants details etc
I hope this all help.
