elwood wedding celebrantCongratulations on your upcoming wedding in Elwood! One of the most important decisions you’ll make is who will officiate your ceremony, and I would be honored to be your Marriage Celebrant. My name is Sharon Osman, and I have over 12 years of experience officiating weddings, elopements, baby naming ceremonies, renewal of vows, and same-sex unions in Elwood and throughout Melbourne.

If you’re looking for a Wedding Celebrant in Elwood, then as your celebrant, my goal is to make your wedding day as special and unique as you are. I offer very reasonable and competitive fees to suit any budget, starting from $450 for legal elopements to classy weddings and everything in between. My warmth, flexibility, professionalism, and excellent listening skills have attracted couples from all over Melbourne, interstate, and even worldwide. I have married couples from a variety of countries, including India, Sri Lanka, most European countries, the United States and Canada, South Africa, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and many others.

Whether you want a big formal ceremony or an intimate gathering, I will work with you to create a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that reflects your vision for your special day. I use a professional PA system for large gatherings, and I provide samples of wedding vows, ring vows, readings, and poems for you to choose from, or you can compose your own. I’m also happy to run through things with you at my home before the wedding date as an alternative to a rehearsal.

The legal steps involved in getting married in Australia can be a bit overwhelming, but don’t worry – I will guide you through the process and make it as easy and stress-free as possible. Here’s a brief overview of the steps:

(Step 1 and 2 can be done at the same time, this of course is up to you)

elwood marriage celebrantStep 1: Contact me to schedule an initial meeting to discuss the type of ceremony you want. There is no cost for this meeting, and you’ll get a chance to meet me and decide if you want to move forward. I’ll ask some basic questions and go through some options, and I’ll leave you with a list of what you’ll need for our next meeting.

Step 2: At our second meeting, we’ll complete the first set of forms, which is the ‘Notice of Intended Marriage’. This must be done at least one month prior to the ceremony, and I’ll confirm that all your documents are in order. I’ll also provide some ideas on the ceremony format and content, and a deposit will be required at this meeting.

Step 3: After discussing your needs, I’ll work up a draft ceremony with all the points you want included. We’ll work together to finalize the ceremony to your satisfaction.

Step 4: I’ll document the agreed-upon ceremony and provide you with a copy to check and peruse at your leisure. You can advise me of any changes only after you have read it thoroughly. During this time, you can contact me by phone or email anytime.

Step 5: Depending on the ceremony, we may wish to have a phone rehearsal, which is quite common these days. Any modifications can be addressed at this point.

Step 6: On the day of the ceremony, I will arrive at the time and place we’ve arranged, and I’ll be around 30 minutes early to ensure that all preparations are complete. I’ll need a nominated person from you to check with at the venue, and I’ll check again with that person after the ceremony before I leave.

Step 7: In the next couple of days, I’ll complete and forward all legal documentation to the appropriate authorities.
