Magnetic Island is a special paradise for your special day. The success
of your Magnetic Island Wedding Ceremony, be it formal or casual, is simply a
matter of planning and, planning simply. With a good Magnetic Island marriage celebrant it's
easier than you think. We hope this Guide will be of assistance in getting started. So...
1. Choose Your Celebrant
Now that you have decided to have a wedding ceremony with a civil
celebrant, if you have not already done so, you should choose one. Most
good celebrants are professionals and are usually booked well in
advance for the most popular times. And remember, your marriage is
important to you, so to ensure that your chosen celebrant is able to
respect your complete freedom of choice you should make personal contact
as soon as possible.
2. Book The Date & Time
Make personal contact with your chosen marriage celebrant to book the date and
time for the ceremony. When contacting your celebrant it is advisable to
have a number of alternative times available if you can. (60% of
weddings take place on a Saturday at the most requested time 3:30pm) Why
not consider a weekday, or a Sunday, try something different. Off peak
wedding receptions and accommodation can save you money. Have a luxury
wedding on a budget.
4. Choose A Ceremony Venue

beaches, attractions, parks, gardens, reception- venues with natural

5. The Interview
You both meet with your celebrant as arranged, in person or by telephone, at a mutually convenient time and place.
Your celebrant will have some initial discussions with you to ascertain
your beliefs and wishes for your ceremony. This will better assist with
drafting your unique wedding ceremony.
This is also the best time to straighten out the little details
regarding the arrangements and any concerns you may have. It will also
help you to get to know your celebrant as a person.
NOTE: Your wedding is very personal. The interactions of ‘face to
face’ & telephone interviews are very personal and can not be
replaced entirely by Email.
6. The Paperwork
The next step is to complete the ''Notice of Intended Marriage'. The Notice is a government form, which simply asks all the usual particulars about who you are and where you came from.
This could be done at home if it was mailed out or in person with your
celebrant at an interview. The Notice must be completed and signed by
both parties to the marriage and the signatures witnessed by an
authorised celebrant or other suitable person as nominated on the form.
One person can lodge the Notice but the other party to the marriage must
sign the form prior to the marriage.
The Notice must be lodged with the celebrant not less than one calendar
month, & not more than eighteen calendar months before the date of

7. Composing The Ceremony
Your chosen celebrant is required to discuss your ceremony at a mutually
agreeable time and place. Further interviews may be required. Your celebrant will then compose and offer you a personalised & legal draft ceremony based on your discussions.
You may use it as is, or as a basic outline for your personally
composed ceremony. All ceremonies are personalised to suit your needs.
However, if you wish to be really personal and entirely compose your own
ceremony, realise that expressing yourself well is no easy task.
Naturally your celebrant will be happy to advise you of the legal and optional requirements in accordance with your desires.
You are encouraged and will be assisted to edit and/or create a ceremony
to make your special day uniquely yours. But remember don't make it
too short. Time really flies on your special day.
Well, that takes care of the basics of your ceremony. Contact us for more details, and congratulations.
