A fabulous wedding

Fun, Fresh,Unique Ceremonies
along the Sunshine Coast to Gympie
Hello my name is Sarah Donoghue,
I am an authorised Marriage Celebrant with the Attorney General department for the Australian Government.
My goal is to give you a Wedding Ceremony you and your guests will enjoy and have fun. A wedding that reflects your unique personality and style, a wedding that you and your guests
will remember forever.
I am fun, let's say reasonably young (late 30's) and bring a fresh & unique style to your ceremony. I have been married to my husband for 16 years which I think is pretty great & I love my job and being apart of a couple's special day.
Wedding planning begins now
Your engagement is a special time that you should enjoy to the fullest. Don't spend it stressing out about your wedding details. We'll discuss all your ideas at length, then design a ceremony with a variety of options for you and your partner to consider.
When you give me the go-ahead, I'll make all the necessary paperwork happen.
There are a few legal requirements for marriage in Australia they are as follows:
- The minimum legal age for consent to marry is 18 years old
A ‘Notice of Intended Marriage Form' must be completed and lodged with me at least one month and one day prior to your wedding date. This notice has a life span of 18 months and is available in a client information folder you will receive.
If born in Australia , a birth certificate must be shown, if born overseas a current passport can be provided, if no birth certificate can be shown. Evidence of the date and place of birth of both persons must be sighted by me.
Any dissolution of a previous marriage must be supported by a decree absolute, or in the instance of a deceased spouse, a death certificate.
Each marriage must be witnessed by two persons aged 18 years or over.
