2. What is involved when arranging your Marriage Ceremony at the Marriage Registry Office? (the following was correct at time of publication 22nd January 2018)

  1. Make your booking. This is done by a phone call during office hours or by completing a form and then waiting for a response... Book online with Simple Ceremonies 24/7.

  2. Make an appointment for your Interview, this is done at the time of booking... No Interview required with  Simple Ceremonies.

  3. Both parties to attend their interview with the Births, Deaths and Marriages representative at their offices in Sydney/ Parramatta or Wollongong.... Interview NOT required with  Simple Ceremonies.

  4. Complete the Notice of Intended Marriage (NoIM) form and lodge it at your interview.  After your NoIM has been lodged all couples must wait at least one calendar month to get married. If you have to wait for your interview, you will not be able to lodge your NoIM - so you ceremony date will have to wait too. Following your interview you need to wait at least one calendar month before you can get married ... Complete NoIM online immediately after booking - no additional time to wait. That means you can get married one calendar from TODAY! 

  5. Have your Marriage Ceremony with an unknown celebrant appointed to you by Births, Deaths and Marriage, NSW. There is a dress code that must be followed ... With Simple Ceremonies you will know who your celebrant will be before you book. Generally Michael Teulon will be your celebrant - check him out here . There is no required dress code.

    Marriage Celebrant – Michael Teulon

    With 15 years experience, you’re guaranteed an amazing ceremony, reflecting the love you share. Your ceremony will be relaxed yet meaningful and who knows, maybe a bit of fun ;-).

    Check out the reviews

    “If you’re after a Simple Ceremony, I’d love to help – and make it easy.”

    We're always being asked this because our fee is so much lower than anyone else.

    What we've done is stream-line the boring bits of getting married.

    We've introduced things, such as; 

    • on-line booking
    • on-line paperwork
    • no interviews
    • registration of marriage same day on-line
    • fixed ceremony locations
     

     

    As a result of this, we can offer an all inclusive price, well below the Marriage Registry Office... 

    BUT, what we haven't "stream-lined" is the essence, meaning and importance of your very special day.

    Having been a Celebrant since 2004, I understand that your wedding is far more important than "efficiencies".

     

    Your ceremony is a very special moment in your lives, one you will remember forever. This is central to our service. We will ensure, you have a ceremony you will remember forever.
