FOOTSCRAY - Completing the NEW Legal Forms AND Writing creative fresh ceremonies

The course will deliver the knowledge and useful tools and resources for those new to celebrancy and, possibly, those celebrants who already have been celebrants for some time but may have taken a break or they have had a long time in between ceremonies. Participants will have a constructive overview of:

  • how the Notice of Intended Marriage should be completed
  • the most common errors when completing the forms
  • how the Notice and supporting documents can be received in an online environment
  • the completion of all other legal documentation – up to and including the signing on the day of the wedding
  • how the marriage should then be registered with the appropriate BDM

The couple should feel confident that the celebrant they have contacted is can effectively liaise with them whilst they are overseas regarding the legal aspects and necessary documentation to solemnise their marriage.

Sitting down to write and work on a couple’s wedding ceremony can, at times, be overwhelming - it's an empty document expectantly staring at you.  You get that final university paper feeling with the cursor blinking in your face.  You know there are a bunch of components in a wedding ceremony, but which ones should you include?  And which ones need to be included to make the marriage legal?

Based on three case studies, this course will assist celebrants to compose wedding ceremonies in Five Steps to ensure the ceremony is both creative, unique and includes their couple’s wishes and requests:

  1. Find the style
  2. Find the tone & the “theme”
  3. Decide which elements of the ceremony the celebrant needs to include (other than the legal components)
  4. Compose a ceremony for each of the three couples making them unique and relevant to each couple!
  5. Ceremony Timing

This course provides celebrants with both the knowledge to professionally and creatively compose ceremonies with a new appreciation and perception as to how they can achieve this objective.
