Brisbane Registry Office
              alternative weddings conducted where you want when you
              want by award winning Brisbane Marriage Celebrant
 
Registry Office Style Weddings
I offer a very personal and affordable alternative to getting married at the Brisbane Registry Office or your local courthouse. But unlike the average Registry Office style wedding offered by other celebrants, what I deliver is a very real alternative to the one-size-fits-all-insert-names-here ceremony that is all too common.

What Happens when you choose a Registry Office Alternative Ceremony with Jennifer Cram
  • You choose both when and where you will hold your ceremony
  • You choose how your ceremony will feel - traditional, romantic, modern, fun? Or all of the above?
  • You know who will be marrying you on the day, and that your celebrant is experienced, relaxed, friendly, and empathetic with a dry but gentle sense of humour who will make this happen with the least fuss and effort
  • You will have the freedom to express your personal commitment in your vows (with the help of my best selling book How to Write Vows that WOW and as much assistance as you need)
  • The ceremony will be light-hearted, laid back, and legal
  • The ceremony will embody warmth and equality, and it will include everyone present (up to 40 people in total).

What I Will Deliver
  • All legal paperwork, including accepting the Notice of Intended Marriage, and registering your marriage
  • Accurate advice about how to deal with unusual situations regarding legal documentation etc that might arise 
  • A no-fuss but creative and imaginative wedding ceremony,  private elopement, secret ceremony, or just a brief, simple, fuss-free legal ceremony with a personal touch
  • Up to 100 km return travel to your venue from my Kenmore office
  • A process that treats you as individuals, not just the next couple on the conveyor belt
  • Prompt response to your emails and phone calls (unlimited) from your first enquiry to after the ceremony
  • A bloke-friendly atmosphere free of gender stereotypes and outdated customs
  • Helpful printed booklets I've written to assist you with having a stress-free wedding and to understand both your rights and your obligations.
  • Professional laser-printed certificates using an elegant font
  • A bound keepsake
