Weddings - Marrying in a hurry
The Marriage Act requires that
couples wishing to marry in Australia must give a full
month's notice. This means that you have to lodge a
duly completed, signed and witnessed Notice of Intended
with your celebrant. I can witness your
signatures, but if distance or other factors makes
that impossible, I will explain what you will need to
However, the Act also recognises that circumstances
may arise that make it necessary to seek permission to
marry in less than a month.
There are specific grounds on which Shortening of Time
may be granted, none of which are trivial. I will be
happy to assist you with your application for
shortening of time should you meet the criteria.
Please note that pregnancy and rapidly approaching
visa expiry are not acceptable reasons.
was amazing. We loved how you made it fun and
humourous. We also liked how you involved our
family. All in all it was such a warm ceremony.
You were great!!!.Testimonial:
From the get go Jenny made us feel comfortable.
She explained all the in's and out's. Jenny is so
easy to talk to and very quick to respond to any
question or concern you have. Her prices are very
reasonable for the service and attention to detail
she provides. Our ceremony was small with only 10
guests in total but Jenny made everyone laugh and
feel welcome. We would highly recommend Jenny any
day, she made our day truly magical.

Wedding ceremony at Scotts Point
Hi Jenny, Just to say thank you so much for
everything and your relentless efforts. You came at
a time we needed you most, God bless you - Beverley
and Nonsi who married with a shortening of time.
Our favourite part of the
ceremony was how you made us and our families
relaxed and comfortable. We were very impressed with
the personal touches you added. The way you
performed the ceremony was memorable and the
assistance you gave us with the legal paperwork was
outstanding. - Pru and Simon who married in
their lovely garden with a shortening of time.
