Wedding Celebrant Wollongong
If you are based in the Wollongong area, and looking for a celebrant for your wedding day, then Samantha Lysaught of Life's Celebrations by Samantha will make your special day as memorable as ever.
Being very committed and dedicated to delivering a unique, personalised and friendly ceremony, Samantha works with her couples every step of the way determining exactly what they want for their ceremony and what inclusions they have in mind. Samantha will take the time to guide both parties to the wedding, assisting with vows and ring wordings along with music and reading suggestions. Upon receipt of your booking fee which secures your date and time, Samantha loans to you resources that will help with all of the things mentioned above. Wedding vows in particular can be quite scary for a lot of people, but Samantha makes it a little easier offering suggestions that you may or may not wish to use. They may just give you some inspiration - something to help you to put together your own vows.
There are some legalities of course that Samantha will need to take care of. In the first instance a Notice of Intended Marriage ( NOIM ) needs to be filled out and signed in front of Samantha. This can be done 18 months prior to your wedding taking place but no less that one month prior to your day. Samantha can supply this form when meeting but it can also be downloaded by clicking on this link. This must be signed in front of your celebrant. Samantha will also go over with the parties to the marriage, the Terms and Conditions of you engaging Life's Celebrations by Samantha as your celebrant.
As another part of Samantha's legal obligations you will also be given a copy of a pamphlet issued by the Attorney Generals Department, Happily Ever, Before and After. Samantha supplies the original pamphlet to both parties to the marriage.
Your original birth certificates must be sighted prior to you getting married as well as photo identification. If you were born in NSW and need to obtain your certificate contact your local Births, Deaths and Marriages office to find out how to apply. An Australian or overseas passport is now acceptable as proof of your birth. Samantha is a Justice of the Peace should you need any documents certified.
