Your wedding ceremony is one of the most important, if not top priority of a wedding day. It brings two people together in the presence of friends, family and loved ones and allows you to share magical moments.

That is why it is very important to carefully plan your ceremony, because it:

· recognises the sanctity of marriage;

· signifies the start of your married life together;

· celebrates your commitment to each other;

· puts into words your promises to each other including your vows; and

· announces your love for each other.

If there is one thing you will remember about your special day, for the rest of your life, it is that moment when you stood up and declared for all to hear, that you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with an amazing person ..........the one you love. With a Happy Heart.

Good news, we are in the lucky State (WA) and our coronavirus restrictions are being modified / updated gradually over the next few weeks. We moved from 5 people at a wedding (Celebrant, Couple and two Witnesses) to 10 in attendance (Celebrant, Couple, two Witnesses and 5 guests). As of Monday 18th May 2020, we can have 20 people inside or 30 people outside. We must still abide by the 4 square metre ruling regarding social-distancing and maintain good hygiene (no hugging and kissing in the group) but what a fabulous time for us all. Thank you Perth, from my Happy Heart.

Coronavirus Update for Weddings WA

As of this week (16/03/20) - Prime Minister Scott Morrison advised a ban on all non-essential indoor gatherings of more than 100 people - one of a number of new measures to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

This, along with travel bans and other complications, is causing couples who have a wedding booked in the next few months, to postpone their wedding, and look to reschedule later in the year, with many opting to wait until 2021.

This is just a reminder, couples can still “get married” legally, as this only requires 5 people to be in attendance, the couple, their celebrant and two witnesses.

The legal aspect of the marriage performed by the celebrant, can take place. The paperwork can still be lodged and a certificate of marriage will be issued by BDM. Nothing has changed.

The celebration with family & friends is what can be postponed until restrictions are lifted.

That’s enough to give you a Happy Heart.
