Winter she’s a coming! Grab a jacket peeps! 🥶

I don’t love winter, but I do love winter fashion, especially a deliciously luxurious faux fur!

I see it all too often, my couple (especially my brides) and their guests freezing their asses off in the name of wedding day fashion.

I get it, you said yes to the dress and you don’t want to cover that beautiful creation up, but even mid season evenings are bloody cold in SA and its absolutely worth having a gorgeous jacket handy to flick on in between photos to bring your core temp up a bit so you don’t exhaust yourself so much. Also it might feature perfectly in your pics and you’ll be comfy so you can actually enjoy your post ceremony drinks and photo time instead of just wishing it was over so you can get warm!

Also if champagne is available who even orders tea? Not me 🥂

I love to craft ceremonies that are just like a glass of good quality champagne…thoroughly enjoyable, with just the right amount of cheeky bubbles and loads of fun when enjoyed with the people you love 🍾.

Cracking day at @mountloftyhouse @mountloftyestateweddings today

Q: How important is the Notice Of Intended Marriage (NOIM)? A: VERY!

This is the first step in your legal paperwork process with your authorised marriage celebrant (like mwah ☺️) and it needs to be signed and submitted with your marriage celebrant no later than one month before your ceremony date (and no earlier than 18 months) so they can legally marry you on your chosen wedding date.

My beautiful professional celebuddies and I have great systems in place so we don’t miss this important NOIM deadline of one month before, so you should be sweet there, we got you.

But with more and more couples booking ‘micro-weddings’ with shorter and shorter lead times I feel not everyone knows about the importance of this document and what is required to be done here.

I keep things super simple for my couples and send them a unique and secure portal link so they can fill in all the info I need to generate their NOIM and they usually sign it with me as their authorised celebrant/witness about 3-4 months out from their marriage date.

I also send gentle reminders that I need to sight their approved ID (usually passport or birth certificate alongside a form of photo ID like a drivers licence), when we sign so we can do it all in one hit ensuring it is all sorted and submitted with me well before it’s actually due.

Now, if this doc is not submitted with your marriage celebrant prior to one month before your ceremony date, you have a few options…

• You can move your date so you can meet these legal requirements.
• Chose to stick with your date and your celebrant can perform a non-legal ‘commitment ceremony’ on your wedding date and then you can meet them with two witnesses over 18 and sign the legal paperwork after the one month period has passed since signing the NOIM (obviously in this case your actual marriage date and wedding date won’t match).
• Apply for a ‘shortening of time’ with the BDM Registrar. This is a bit of a process and there is also a set list of reasons the registrar will approve a shortening of time. It is not guaranteed. There is also specific circumstances where this is unavoidable of course, so if in doubt please speak to your celebrant.

Olivia + Jack 9.13.23 | A story about persistence....
You see Jack and Liv’s love story started at the 2016 Uni Games where it was lust at first sight for Jack...

But let’s just say that they didn’t quite hit it off straight super keen Jack made a commitment to message Liv on the 15th of every month until Liv agreed to go out with him...

In Jack’s own words...

“Somehow it only took me 10 months to finally get Liv to go on a date with me, I reckon I had at least another 37 months in me. They say a man’s love is measured by his persistence, and I knew from the beginning I wanted to marry Liv....”

Thankfully Jack’s persistence paid off at their 4th unigames together on the Gold Coast, when Liv finally decided that he had worked hard enough and they gave things a go.

So after returning to Adelaide they were inseparable and have been ever since...

Congratulations again lovers ❤️

Leah + Brendan 3.5.24 | This epic reel created by our friends at @theweddingcreators_ captured the loved up and super warm energy everyone felt on Leah and Brendan’s big day on Friday!

This dynamic duo met on a Conteiki tour en route to Paris over 9 years ago and have built an incredible life together ever since.

When I spoke to them they were feeling a a bit bummed that a few of the key players on Leah’s side couldn’t travel down from her home state of Queensland to celebrate with them and wanted some tips on live steaming the ceremony.

Of course I gave them all my tips…coz I picked up a few during Covid…but then suggested if they wanted to go one step further maybe they should chat to the AWESOME team at @theweddingcreators_ who could not only document their day for their interstate loved ones to watch, but also creating content for Leah and Brendan to have and to hold for many years to come.

Being the intelligent humans they are they locked in the beautiful crew from @theweddingcreators_ and this is only a snippet of all the gold the girls captured on the day…think your best mates walking around after you with a phone all day!

Congratulations legends!!! It really was such a beautiful day and I am so thankful I could be a part of it ❤️

Congratulations Lauren and Simon!

Did you know that your Maid of Honour and Best Man are not the only two people that can witness the signing of your marriage certificate? Understandably two key players in your wedding party (if you are having one) is a popular choice, but legally you can pick anyone over 18 to sign your documents.

So this makes your options are endless right, but it’s an awesome way to include a couple significant humans in your lives that might not already have an official role in your day…which your mums traditionally don’t … yep it still surprises.

So that’s a lovely inclusion, but also siblings are cool, grandparents if you are lucky enough to still have them around or just simply pick two of your favourite humans over 18 and you are good to go.

Plus the wonderful bonus is that the signing is a beautiful time in the ceremony where you step out of the limelight for a moment, take a huge breath and usually have a laugh, so pick two people you want to be involved in that moment with you too 🥰.

Millie + Jonte 19.4.24 | Millie has openly admitted that she loves their fur baby Remi more than Jonte…if it was socially acceptable she would carry Remi around in a harness on the front of her at all times…

This is of course absolutely understandable because Remi is unbelievably sweet and gorgeous!

So their fur-baby played a massive part in their stunning day at @goldingwines on Friday, she even snuck into their cake design…cuteness overload!

Congratulations beautiful two! What an awesome day ❤️.

They not only have an amazing one taste in puppies, they picked a stellar lineup of suppliers too…
