Your registry-style wedding with me is short and sweet with a minimum of fuss and can be held:
I usually only offer this service at my home when limited to yourselves and your two witnesses.
Small weddings like these can be held through the week, on a Sunday or a Saturday morning or evening. Saturday afternoons are usually reserved for full wedding ceremonies and attract a higher fee than other registry style ceremonies or elopements.
Most States and the Northern Territory of Australia offer registry office weddings where you attend the Registry Office or a Court House. A very short ceremony is held where you exchange vows and sign certificates. Bookings often need to be made well in advance for these wedding ceremonies. Some offer these registry weddings only on weekdays but some are open on Saturday. The ACT and Tasmania do not offer registry weddings so you need a civil celebrant for these.
More information can be found at the Registry office websites:
A registry-office style wedding ceremony generally contains a short welcome of you and your guests, a statement about the purpose of the gathering, the legal definition of marriage in Australia, marriage vows and ring exchange, followed by signing certificates and presenting you as a married couple.
