Pat was exceptional as our Celebrant. We met with him on 3 separate occasions before our wedding day, and so on the wedding day it felt like seeing an old friend and made the whole experience more intimate and personal.

Our guests loved him and commented on what a great speaker Pat is and how warm and engaging he was.

Pat is also very flexible on how you would like to run the ceremony and the vows you’d like to exchange and really does make the day all about you.

We would recommend Pat to anyone looking for a Marriage Celebrant.

Thank you, Pat, for making our day so special.

Kerry O’Connell

wedding planner 26

We just wanted to give our sincere thanks to Pat for being a very special part of our big day.

From our first meeting, he put us at ease and enabled us to have the casual and relaxed wedding we have always dreamed of.

There were laughs, tears and everything in between.

So for this Pat, we are truly grateful and so glad we found you.

I highly recommend Pat if you also want a beautiful, personalised and memorable ceremony.

Mariage Celebrant Gold Coast

A person who performs a marriage ceremony.

A person authorised to perform marriage ceremonies or civil partnership declarations by the Office of Fair Trading in Queensland. Marriage celebrants are not legally recognised marital status officials, however, they are recognised as having the authority to solemnise marriages in Australia under section 47 of the Marriage Act (1961).

The process of becoming a Marriage Celebrant may differ between states or territories in Australia. In Queensland, marriage celebrants must first be registered with the Office of Fair Trading and then they will be issued with a certificate which is required by law to perform a ceremony

A marriage celebrant (or wedding officiant) is a person who performs a marriage ceremony for two people. Marriage celebrants are not legally recognised marital status officials. However, they are recognised as having the authority to solemnise marriages in Australia under section 47 of the Marriage Act (1961).

The process of becoming a marriage celebrant differs between states and territories in Australia. In Queensland, marriage celebrants must first be registered with the Office of Fair Trading and then they will be issued with a certificate which is required by law to perform a ceremony.

The Civil Marriage Eligibility

 

In order to be eligible for a civil marriage ceremony, the couple must meet the following criteria:
-Both partners are 18 years or older and not already married.
-Neither partner is near death.
-Both partners are mentally competent to understand the nature and commitment of marriage.
-Marriages of same-sex couples are recognised in Australia.

The marriage license is a document that can be obtained in many countries, including the United States, Australia and Korea. The document is necessary for a couple to marry in most jurisdictions. The marriage license is typically issued by a government body, such as a court or a clerk’s office. The license may be required before a couple can be married in a religious or secular ceremony, depending on the laws of the jurisdiction.

It is also known as a marriage certificate,

marriage contract and marriage licence. When issued by the government of a state, it is sometimes called a certificate of civil status, and colloquially as the paper or certificate to prove marriage. In jurisdictions that recognize common law marriages or unions, the document may simply be referred to as “marriage papers” or “union papers” (or “marriage license” for those licenses that permit only one union).

There are several types of marriage licenses available worldwide.

Wedding Planning 

Bridal and groomsmen attire, floral centerpieces, the formal invitation process, the guest list—the list goes on.

Planning a wedding is an exciting yet stressful task that can lead to sleepless nights and headaches. What’s even more stressful?

Dealing with an unqualified or unreliable wedding officiant who may be unprepared to guide you through the ceremony process.

 

Choosing the right Wedding Celebrant

 If you are searching for a reputable and qualified wedding celebrant, here are five suggestions that can help make choosing the right one easier:

1. Check Licenses and Registrations: Search your state’s online database for information on marriage celebrants in your area.

A licensed marriage celebrant will typically be registered with the Bureau of Vital Statistics and will have a certificate of authority from the officiate to perform ceremonies.

Other states may have a different name for this certificate, but it will state whether the marriage celebrant has authority to perform weddings in the area.

 

The word “matrimony”

is used to refer to the state of being a married couple. It is traditionally used in Christian context, but may be used in non-Christian contexts.

The word marriage is derived from Middle English “mariage”, which subsequently stems from Old French “matrimonie” (“matrimony”), and ultimately from Latin “matrimonium”.

The word was introduced into early modern English in the mid-15th century. The word may have come via Old French “matremoine”, a derivative of Latin “mātrimōnium”, meaning ” feast, sacrificial rite” (more fully, “a sacrifice made by man to God for the sake of man”).

It appears that the etymology of “matrimony” as a noun was originally connected to the idea of ‘motherhood’ (Latin “māter”) and that it is thence derived from Latin “mātrimōnium”.

 

The word “marriage” 

first appears in English in the year 1000 and in major usage by the 11th century. Germanic-speaking peoples have, at least since Old English times, treated marriage as a mathematical matter of division of property (mainly land) between bride and groom. The word usually refers to an official marriage like that recognized by law or other government institution. In some cultures, marriage requires a formal contract called a marriage contract. This is the case in South Africa, to which the Law of Property Act (Section 26) refers:

In South Africa, marriage has been recognized as a civil contract under the principle of equality. The freedom to marry does not extend to all couples; some prohibitions are placed on interracial marriages and marriages with close blood relatives.

 

The legal age for marriage 

varies from country to country. The minimum age required for a girl to marry in most countries is usually 15 years old, and varies considerably in different countries. Boys are allowed to marry at a younger age, usually with parental consent. The United States has the highest minimum age for marriage at 18 years old (with some jurisdictions allowing lower ages with parental consent). This is followed by New Zealand and the UK where the minimum ages to marry without parental consent are 16 and 17 respectively.

Some countries have no set formal age limits for marriage, but every country sets a specific age of majority — — below which minors may not marry. Such limits are usually between 12 and 20 years of age.

The ceremony for a civil marriage

 

in Australia can either be performed by an authorised celebrant or an authorised minister of religion (under the Marriage Act 1961 (Commonwealth) Part VA.5).

The commitment ceremony is a ritual involving the participation of two people in a romantic relationship. The event often takes place in a public area with friends and family members of both individuals present, who share their joy and excitement.

There are companies that provide the service of a commitment ceremony. The ceremony is generally conducted by a trained celebrant or minister, who conducts the ceremony according to their own religious and legal beliefs. Some celebrants conduct these ceremonies with the belief that once legalised by a governing authority, such as a city registry, the union is comparable to marriage.

The word “matrimony” is also used within prisons to refer to an inmate’s wedding in prison. Inmates can marry both visitors and other inmates. Such ceremonies are usually arranged between inmates and visitors (who have already been approved by authorities) and must be approved by correctional authorities before they can be performed.

The wedding ceremony takes place in a church or other religious venue. They can be either civil or religious, and are traditionally presided over by an officiant. The wedding ceremony is followed by a reception that may include food and drink.

The wedding ceremony

in Brazil, Canada, and the United States is formally governed by state civil law unless “by religious law” is included in the marriage license. The most common wedding ceremony performed in these countries is a civil ceremony with no religious component, but there are also ceremonies that include a religious aspect. In Brazil, Canada, and the United States,

marriages can be registered with local authorities; they are binding legally unless annulled or dissolved. Marriage licenses issued by a state must indicate whether or not they comply with any state’s laws on marriage or are valid under federal law.

The U.S. has been called the “land of second chances”. This second chance is available to anyone who desires it. The person may apply for the annulment of a marriage or for a divorce.

Other countries, such as China, do not recognize divorce and allow only the death of one spouse to terminate a marriage.

Privacy remains an issue in the United States requiring judges to conduct hearings on marriage annulments behind closed doors to guard the privacy of the individuals involved.

In China, married couples sign a contract called (marriage registration form). If they wish to separate, they must file for processing at the relevant authority before a legal divorce can be granted.

The marriage contract

is a prenuptial agreement clause that covers almost every aspect of the relationship between a couple. It is generally executed by both people on the date of marriage, but can also be signed at any time prior to or after the wedding. The purpose of such a contract is to legally and formally outline everything that is anticipated to occur between a married couple as they embark on their lives together. They are intended to work out any problems that may arise in the event of divorce, separation or death.

The most common agreement concerns property division, but it can also be used to set out alimony and child care provisions or provide for educational expenses and other issues dealing with parenting as well as adoption. If a divorce is inevitable, it may be preferable to seek legal advice from an experienced family law attorney before entering into the agreement.

In Scotland, marriage registration must be provided by a registered marriage celebrant. A separate certificate of matrimonial recognition is available to provide proof of the date of the marriage. The session laws provide for only one licensing authority for each district, and this authority grants marriages. The marriage register provides a permanent record of any marriages solemnised and enables parents to ask directly for details of their children’s marriages under “Parental Responsibility”.

 Marriage in Sweden is governed by the Marriage Act (SFS 1991:1100). Marriage is a legally binding contract between two persons based on mutual love and affection. Prior to contracting a marriage, both parties must be at least 18 years of age.

A fiancée visa is required from the Swedish embassy or consulate for fiancé(e)s from outside Sweden. In some cases it may be possible for one party to arrive in Sweden prior to registration of the marriage.

The foreign national will then receive a temporary residence permit based on their engagement to marry a Swedish citizen, which is only valid for three months during the actual engagement period, after which (if staying in Sweden) they must apply for an extension.

Marriage vows

can be a time-consuming task. They involve a lot of thought and feeling, and it’s important to put your heart into them so they’re meaningful. If you get stuck, ask someone for help or go over them to make sure that you’ve included everything that matters to you.

You might also want to consider getting a wedding mentor. This can make the whole process much easier and more enjoyable.

Summary of marriage rules in North America:

 In some societies, marriage is considered a social institution that is central to society. In some cases, it is required by law for certain members of the population, such as women in certain Muslim countries or any woman who marries beneath her status, such as prostitutes, and any man who marries a woman with no parental claims on her.

In other societies, marriage is not a legal requirement, and may be performed or encouraged for various reasons. Marriages in practice can be complex and usually involve the exchange of vows and sometimes gifts such as rings.

A marriage ceremony can have many different styles of service (e.g., a church wedding or secular civil marriage). In some ceremonies, the bride and groom wear special clothing to symbolize their status as married persons, such as wedding dresses.

 

Wedding etiquette

consists of social rules that govern various aspects of wedding etiquette, including those involving planning the wedding ceremony itself. Most wedding etiquette derives from customs developed over centuries among cultures around the world.

In societies where arranged marriage is the norm, the terms for a wedding can be specifically delineated to reflect its purpose. In many cultures, marriage is not necessarily a romantic union or a peace-making act between individuals: it is primarily related to the continuation of inheritance lines through offspring, with the two sexes represented as complementary halves of a whole.

The most common form of marriage in such societies is polygamy, which involves having several wives and a single husband.

Polygamy may be opposed by monogamy

(the practice of having only one wife at one time), polyandry (having several husbands at one time), or especially by monogamism (a kind of marriage based on love or other forms of emotional attachment).

Among the many societies that practice polygamy today are the Arabic cultures of Jordan, Morocco and Sudan; the Berber and Arab culture of Mauritania; some in Sub-Saharan West Africa and others in parts of Nigeria. In all these cases, there is a marked tendency for women to be relegated to an inferior or invisible role which is often poorly documented. Medieval Europe also saw examples of multiple marriages – even though Christian doctrine strictly prohibited it.

In certain countries, such as Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, marriage regulations state that a marriage must be approved by existing wives as well as parents in order for it to be validated. In Pakistan, parents also must give their written permission before two people aged 21 or older can marry.
