Urgent Weddings in Special Circumstances
While the standard legal requirement is that you must give a full month's notice in order to marry in Australia, under certain circumstances that waiting period can be shortened.

If your circumstances meet one of the strictly controlled criteria, I will assist you to apply for permission to marry with less than a month's notice.

Please note: Pregnancy or Visa needs are not grounds for Shortening of Time.
What You Happens If You Need to Marry in a Hurry
  • You will need to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage and lodge it with me
  • You will need to decide on a specific day for the ceremony
  • You will also need to pay me a non-refundable booking fee
  • You will need to obtain a letter from me supporting your application for Shortening of Time
  • I will give you information of how and where to see a Prescribed Authority in order to make this application and the types of evidence you will need to take with you.
  • If Shortening of Time is granted I will pull out all stops to perform a personal ceremony that meets your needs
