OPD Distance - Completing Legal Forms AND Resources - what to give prospective couples


The course will deliver the knowledge and useful tools and resources for those new to celebrancy and, possibly, those celebrants who already have been celebrants for some time but may have taken a break or they have had a long time in between ceremonies. Participants will have a constructive overview of:

  • how the Notice of Intended Marriage should be completed
  • the most common errors when completing the forms
  • how the Notice and supporting documents can be received in an online environment
  • the completion of all other legal documentation – up to and including the signing on the day of the wedding
  • how the marriage should then be registered with the appropriate BDM


Everyone is excited, the celebrant as they have the opportunity to meet with a prospective couple and the couple as they start planning the ceremony for one of the most important days of their lives. The couple should leave the meeting feeling special and knowing that the celebrant is, most definitely, the right celebrant for them confident that all their services have been highlighted and they may, indeed, achieve their objective of gaining a new ceremony booking.

So, what does the celebrant need to have on hand in the way of resources to both inspire the couple and give them complete confidence in the celebrant’s professionalism? During this session we will workshop what resources to give a couple. Examples of resources will be provided.
