But, you need to get your form to your Celebrant by tomorrow 9 December 2018 to make the legally required 1 month and 1 day's notice to marry.
Even i have to admit i thought i'd be waiting for months before the Government could pull this rabbit out of the hat. But they've done it!
2018 is yours to celebrate becoming your loved one's husband, wife or spouse.
As an Authorised Celebrant, I have officially received correspondence from the Attorney General's Department and now required to say these words within a ceremony......
I am duly authorised by law to solemnise marriages according to law. Before you are joined in marriage in my presence and in the presence of these witnesses, I am to remind you of the solemn and binding nature of the relationship into which you are now about to enter. Marriage, according to law in Australia, is the union of two people to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life.
Once you have signed your Notice of Intention to Marry form (witnessed by the Celebrant or official) it is open for 18 months, so even if you don't have a date yet, that's OK. You just need to wait the 1 month and 1 day that is legally required for all marriages.
