WEDDINGS AND CORONAVIRUS

Important information about current restrictions

Yes - you can still get married!

Life has changed dramatically because of the coronavirus measures in Australia, but don't worry - weddings are continuing. However, ceremonies are now restricted to the legal minimum of five people: the marrying couple, the Celebrant, and the two official witnesses. We must also observe the social distancing requirements of keeping at least 1.5m apart. These rules apply whether the ceremony is inside or outside.

Changes to ceremony options

My Kiss Me Quick Bronze and Silver ceremonies remain available. Bronze is for weddings within 15km of Sydney CBD and Silver is for weddings up to 40km. Both ceremonies can only have the legal minimum of people present. The Gold option has been temporarily withdrawn until the Government measures are lifted.

Marry now, party later

Some couples postponing the party don't want to postpone being legally married. I can marry you now and you can celebrate later in a Reaffirmation of Vows ceremony. Ask me for details.

Rest assured - I’m doing all I can to support couples in every way possible. My advice page is being constantly updated.

Sometimes all you need is a fun, fuss-free and easy way to get married!

 

Kiss Me Quick weddings are the very essence of what getting legally married means; standing together in an intimate ceremony to make your vows to each other, keeping the formalities to a minimum. They’re simple, short and straightforward yet still memorable, modern and meaningful.

It's the perfect wedding if you’re eloping, remarrying, keeping it low-key, on a budget, planning something intimate without frills or fanfare or having a ceremony overseas and need to do the legals before or after. Kiss Me Quick weddings are a great alternative to a Registry Office because they give you more choice over ceremony content, location and size.

No need for lengthy planning meetings. Quickly and easily design your own ceremony yourself using my unique online Ceremony Creator. Look through the choice of pre-prepared selections and pick whatever content, style and length suits you best. The legal requirements are automatically included, and you can add in a few personal details if you wish.

With me, the paperwork is painless. I'll guide you through the process, fill out all the forms for you, register your marriage and issue you with a Marriage Certificate.

Visiting from overseas? I can help you get married in Sydney, making everything easy and enjoyable.

Kiss Me Quick weddings are exactly that, but don't forget - you still need to give a minimum of one month's notice to get married in Australia. So make sure you plan ahead!

FAQ

About Kiss Me Quick Weddings

What's the difference between Bronze, Silver and Gold?

BRONZE is the simplest option for small weddings with up to 10 people present within 15km of Sydney CBD. The beauty of this type of ceremony lies in its simplicity, so we don't have elements like an entrance, wedding parties and music; we simply gather everyone together, get to the point, and get you married!

SILVER keeps the same simple, short and stripped-back approach as Bronze, but there's no limit on numbers and the venue can be up to 40km from Sydney CBD.

GOLD expands the Silver options to include a bridal/groom entrance, exit, wedding parties and ceremony music.

What's the Ceremony Creator?

My Ceremony Creator is an unique and fun way to choose your own ceremony online. You'll be asked to enter some basic information about yourselves, and then you'll be taken through each stage of the marriage ceremony. At each step, you can choose from a variety of different pre-prepared options. The information you enter at the start will help to personalise the ceremony. You control the content and the length - you can skip some sections if you wish. The legal sections are automatically added, so at the end you'll have a completed, legal marriage ceremony ready to go. Too easy!

Can we write our own wedding vows?

Yes you can! The Ceremony Creator will ask you to copy and paste them into the ceremony script as you work through the different sections. Or you can email them to me later.

Can I add extra elements to my ceremony not covered by the Ceremony Creator?

No. Kiss Me Quick weddings are basic ceremonies designed to keep everything simple and straightforward, so what you see if what you get. If you’re looking for something more than the no fuss, no frills approach, my Tailor-Made Weddings offer a bespoke ceremony with extensive personalisation, complexity and extra elements.

What's the difference between a Kiss Me Quick Gold wedding and a Tailor-Made wedding?

The difference is the content and length of the ceremony. A Tailor-Made ceremony is fully bespoke, researched and written from scratch by me, with whatever elements you wish included. It lasts up to 30 minutes. Best choice for couples who put a lot of importance on the ceremony part of the day.

The Kiss Me Quick Gold option is a short ceremony chosen yourself from pre-written options lasting up to 15 minutes. Best choice for couples who are less focussed on the ceremony and want the formalities kept short and very simple.

When making your choice, also take into account the expectations of you and your guests. Kiss Me Quick weddings are perfect for more casual locations such as parks and backyards. If you've chosen a formal venue and you're also investing in florals and styling, consider if Kiss Me Quick may be too quick!

How long does the ceremony last?

Kiss Me Quick Bronze and Silver Weddings - 10 to 15 minutes.
Kiss Me Quick Gold Weddings - 15 minutes.

What venues and locations are best suited to a Kiss Me Quick Wedding?

Kiss Me Quick Weddings are ideal for a range of informal locations, such as parks, gardens, back yards, at home, restaurants, bars, beaches, etc. Because of their simplistic nature, they're not recommended for large or formal wedding venues where expectations around the ceremony are different.

What official forms do we need to fill out and where do we find them?

You do not need to fill out any official forms yourself! I will complete all the forms, certificates and required paperwork on your behalf. All you need to do is to check them and then sign. I also take care of all official lodgements, registrations and certificates. So easy!

We are an overseas couple. How easy is it to get married in Australia?

Very easy. I help lots of overseas couples to marry in Australia. Most of the process can be done online and I will make everthing as simple as possible for you.

Can we meet you before we decide to book?

The simple nature of Kiss Me Quick weddings means a pre-booking meeting is not required and all the information you need to know is on my website. But I'm always up for a chat! We can arrange an online video call if you'd like to ask questions. A face to face meeting is held once you have booked and I have all your information. Streamlining the process in this way is one of the things that keeps the fee lower.

Do we meet in person before the wedding?

Absolutely yes! We meet in person after you have booked so we can sign your initial paperwork and run through what will happen on the day. You can also ask all your questions and work out any final details.

Do you bring a PA system?

For Kiss Me Quick Bronze weddings, a PA is not required because there are 10 people or less present.
For Kiss Me Quick Silver weddings, I bring a PA and microphone so the ceremony is clearly audible to all.
For Kiss Me Quick Gold weddings, I bring my professional PA system with a microphones, input for music and line out for wedding videographers. If you're having recorded music, simply tell me what songs you'd like and I look after all of that for you.

What time do you arrive on the day?

At least 15 minutes before the ceremony start time.

What are the payment terms?

In line with the aim of keeping everything as uncomplicated and straightforward as possible, payment for Kiss Me Quick Weddings is made in full on booking. You'll be provided with a copy of the full Terms and Conditions during the booking process.

Additional Marriage Certificates

Sydney Marriage Celebrant Rings and Certificate

A simple Marriage Certificate is included with every wedding and is presented to you after the ceremony.

For any official reason, such as changing your surname, applying for visas, proving your marriage outside Australia etc, you'll need a different kind of certificate.

A range of Commemorative Certificates is also available in a choice of designs.

 

Marriage Witnesses

Marriage Register and Certificate - Stephen Lee Sydney Marriage Celebrant

It's a legal requirement to have two official witnesses at your ceremony.

Usually the couple will nominate their own witnesses.

But if you're coming from overseas, interstate, or don't know anyone to ask, I can book two people to fulfil the witness role.

 

Ceremony Styling

Kiss Me Quick Gold In The Park Styling Bradfield Park - Sydney Marriage Celebrant Stephen LeeReally set the scene for your wedding with a ceremony styling package.

Wedding Rehearsal

Woodland Wedding - Stephen Lee Sydney Marriage Celebrant
Part of my role as your Celebrant is to offer advice on whether a rehearsal is appropriate.

In the vast majority of cases it's not required.

But if you are planning a particularly complex ceremony or if you feel strongly that a rehearsal with me in attendance is absolutely necessary, it is available on request.
