Additional Costs

 
  • If you decide that you require an onsite wedding rehearsal to help you feel a bit calmer on the day an additional fee MAY be incurred depending on time/distance travelled and subject to availability but I will ALWAYS run through the ceremony with you at our final meeting so we can make any changes or additions and answer any questions you may have. Remember I am here to help you….
  • Travel outside Bendigo, additional fees may be incurred – please call to discuss.
  • After your Wedding all couples should obtain their Official Registered Marriage Certificate from Births Deaths and Marriages ~ BDM will charge a small fee for this as outlined on their website. You will require this certificate as proof of marriage, to change your name and, if applicable, Immigration purposes

Some couples may choose to reinforce their original vows by holding another ceremony, perhaps on a significant occasion such as a birthday or anniversary. 


These ceremonies, like Commitments, can also follow a similar format to the wedding service, with either the original vows or new vows being recited. Sometimes rings are exchanged, but there are no legal formalities to be addressed.
