Hello FROM VAL AND ANDREW - GETTING STARTED

Thankyou for booking your wedding with us at The Wedding Shed, Kookaburra Hideaway.

Having made your decision for your Wedding location, I know that most couples are feeling very relieved that they have found their special venue and are very excited about planning ahead, but in some cases, this can be quite daunting, even with all the help that we give you.  
 
So, to help you plan and put your mind at rest I have put together a guide for you and also outlined what we will be doing to assist you along the way.

What needs to be remembered above all  is that we are here to help you with anything you need. Please just let us know if you need anything... no matter how small and silly it might seem.

You have already made the biggest decisions, so give yourselves a pat on the back.

  1. You have decided to get married to the person you love

  2. You have decided on a date, a location and a venue

  3. You have decided on the size and budget for your wedding

Those are huge steps…

Legals:-

If I (Val) am your Marriage Celebrant you will need to get your Notice of Intent to Marry lodged with me no more than 18 months prior to your marrying date and no less than 30 days.   If you are within the 18 month time frame, just get it done and tick the box.. this applies to all Celebrants.

Fill in your Notice of Intent to Marry and have your Celebrant sign and witness or get a JP/Police Officer or other qualified person to witness your signature.  Then lodge with your Celebrant.  Must be received no less than 30 days prior to your Wedding date, your celebrant will remind you, but it is your responsibility to ensure that it is lodged on time.

Closer to your wedding you will be meeting with your Celebrant and discussing your ceremony and preparing you personal vows… this is usually 4-6 weeks prior to your ceremony.  This is usually the time when you are all organised and have your "romantic" head on so as to enable you to compose your vows and decide on ceremony details.

Think of your wedding lead up as a tapestry…we will be adding to it piece by piece and the picture will become clearer and clearer as we add more and more threads to it.

Most importantly, don't forget we are here to help you..   We will put together your running sheet and manage your day for you, so that you can relax and enjoy yourselves...

You will never walk alone :)

Bye for now,
Wishing you all good things for 2021
