In Australia, Marriage is regulated by the Marriage Act 1961, which sets out the process for getting married and the legal requirements of a valid marriage.
To complete the legal requirements of your wedding, your signed wedding certificates will be lodged with the relevant Registry of Birth Deaths and Marriages in the State where the marriage was solemnised.
Once this lodgement has taken place, please contact them to obtain a copy of your certificate of marriage registration, which can be used to change your name officially.
Thank you for your expert blend of warmth and professionalism.
You turned our special day into magnificent. It was truly our memorable moment in time.. and you are deserving of the highest commendation.
We love you. Franc & Shane
Dean Eddy...... like a Dior handbag in an affordable shop window!
We will remember this man forever. His passion and commitment are on a different level. He will treat you like you are part of his own family. We had a wedding during COVID 19 and 2 days before we had a lot of restrictions put into place - Dean was the one who called the bride (and the groom on seperate calls) straight away to say he's got alternatives which ones do you think is best?
My goodness what I thought would be a stressful day turned out to be a breeze because of this AMAZING 5 star individual. And the best bit is he does it from his own heart. You will be VERY well looked after with this one taking charge of your ceremony.
He even calls you to check up how you are doing! #weddingGOLD
Dean, thank you so much for your kind support from the beginning to the end.
Everything was perfect and way above our expectations.
We hope to see you next time we are in Melbourne.
Perfect! We couldn't say anything bad about Dean.
He understood everything we wanted. We were both so happy and our guests as well on the day had nothing but positive feedback.
Myself and my now husband had the pleasure of having the best celebrant in Melbourne - That is Dean.
We meet different celebrants, but Dean was a standout for his engaging and genuine character and disposition.
Dean took the time to give us tips and tricks for the wedding day on our first time meeting him, before we’d even decided to pick him. that’s just who he is, dedicated to an amazing wedding day for all couples.
We didn’t have to worry about anything on the day or beforehand, as Dean knew everything required and guided us through. Dean took the time to get to know myself and my then “to be“ husband so our wedding was meaningful and representational of is.
Dean took the time to even meet out parents and siblings before the ceremony.
We can’t recommend Dean highly enough.
Dean is so lovely - he really took the time to make sure we were calm and comfortable on the day.
Couldn't recommend him more highly!
Dean was absolutely amazing. He was very helpful with helping us with our personal vows, always kept in contact and was extremely polite and professional.
I could not recommend Dean highly enough, I felt like we knew him for years. He is very easy to get along with, and the love for his job really shows! He made sure we weren't too nervous and our day was beautiful.
Thank you, Dean, for making our day as memorable as it was.
Thank you Dean for such a splendid wedding.
Your skilled master of ceremony brought out the best in us.
Your gentle unfolding of what would bring memorable depth and meaning to our wedding was the making of an exceptional service.
We have had many people say this was the best wedding they had been to.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
Dean did an amazing job.
Very helpful and responsive.
Guided us step by step. I would highly recommend using Dean as a celebrant.
Looking back at how nervous I was for our special day.
Dean calmed me down and made the whole process more enjoyable and relaxing.
Dean was very professional - he made the whole process really easy and went above and beyond to ensure that everything for the ceremony went perfectly.
He was also really lovely to deal with and he made everyone feel really comfortable.
Dean was an absolute gentleman from day one when we met!
He came down to our home and guided us, gave us all the support and comfort we needed!
We couldn't have asked for anyone more passionate and more helping than Dean. He was just magnificent; we'd definitely recommend him that's for sure! For all the work and the time, he put in, what we paid was very well worth it.
You have been wonderful to deal with throughout the whole process. Our whole family commented on now great you were on the day.
Even my Nana said she would use you if she ever re-married!!!
We honestly couldn't have asked for a better celebrant, you have been a tremendous help.
Contact me and let me help you plan your special day.
