DO YOU DO WEDDINGS OUTSIDE OF WANAKA?
Absolutely! I would love to hear from you to discuss details of your wedding, wherever in New Zealand it may be.
WHAT DOES THE REHEARSAL COVER?
The rehearsal will be a full run-through of what will happen on your big day. Of course the length of the rehearsal will depend on what type of ceremony you have chosen and how many elements are involved.
The rehearsal will cover:
* Who is involved and what role they will play
* The order of service and who will be speaking during the ceremony (including any poems or blessings)
* Where we all stand
* A brief practice of all ceremonial elements
* Cheeky hints, like the best place for each of your nearest and dearest to sit, when to take your sunglasses off to avoid squinting and what to do if you need to quickly steam your dress before the big day!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A MARRIAGE LICENCE?
If approved, the licence will be issued not sooner than three calendar days after it is submitted to a Registrar of Marriages. The licence is valid for three months from the date of issue.
Let's touch base first, and I can walk you through the options - for most, it is easiest to apply online, for others - there will be a different process - which I am more than happy to assist with.
CAN YOU WRITE MY VOWS FOR ME?
Vows are very personal, so we can have a chat about whether you would like to use generic vows. I do recommended that you either amend these slightly or write your own. I am more than happy to assist with this process, as it’s very easy for it to feel overwhelming.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR FEE?
Our initial meeting – either in person, via Skype/phone or over email is complimentary.
If you choose to proceed, I will help you with all paperwork to apply for your marriage licence, the structure of the ceremony, official documentation at the wedding and I’ll ensure all legal aspects of your wedding are completed. Plus I will try my best to answer any questions you may have - including recommendations of other vendors, locations or random Wanaka questions you may have.. (I have lived here for a long time - so definitely know the best swimming holes, hiking trails and where to get great coffee)!
I will attend and run the rehearsal (the day before) with you and your wedding party. Then, of course, the ceremony on your wedding day.
I will also take care of the legal registration post-ceremony, so you can walk away on your wedding day worry-free!
