You've just made our day!

Thank you for booking with Love Me Do Weddings for your upcoming Wedding, you've just taken the first step to confirm your Celebrant and to ensure your special day will be amazing!

Here's what to expect in the lead to your wedding;

Our First Meeting - An opportunity for us to meet and greet and for us to find out all about you! We will ask you to bring with you some documentation to establish your identity, including:

• an original: (1) *Birth Certificate; or (2) an *official extract of an entry in an official register (*preferable if born in Australia), or (3) an Australian or overseas Passport showing the date and place of birth; and
• if providing a Birth Certificate, a driver’s licence or a Passport by way of photo ID; and
• evidence of any name changes (if applicable); and
• evidence of any divorce or death of a party’s spouse (if applicable).

We will explain all legal documentation to you, including the Notice of Intended Marriage form (‘the NOIM’) and the Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage (‘the Declaration’). The NOIM must be completed no earlier than 18 months and no later than one month before the date of the marriage. You will receive an email from us within the next 30 minutes with a link to fill out your NOIM online. Once this is done, it will automatically populate all other legal forms ready to sign.

The Declaration is usually signed closer to your ceremony date (for example, this will be done at a rehearsal approx. 1-2 weeks before your ceremony).

A significant obligation of a marriage celebrant is to advise you on the availability of relationship education services. Whilst this is not compulsory to you getting married, it is important and there are various courses available to help you develop and maintain strong and healthy relationships.

Once the NOIM is signed, we will provide you with a brochure titled Happily Ever…Before and After which contains important information for couples planning to marry.

MONTH 2 - Comprehensive information regarding ceremony readings, music selections and vows can also be made available to you both. All personal vows, music, poems and scripts are to be sent and formalised by couples and sent to us for scripting. This is to be completed no later than 4 weeks out from your wedding to allow us sufficient time to plan, prepare and write the script for your wedding.

MONTH 3

3 – 4 Weeks Before the Ceremony - By now we will have worked together to have a good outline of your wedding ceremony. Communication in person or via email or Skype. We will send you copy of the completed script for your perusal and confirmation which will outline the structure of your ceremony.

2 Weeks Before the Ceremony - Any changes are to be sent via email clearly outlining your changes and final payment and balance due.

1 Week Before the Ceremony - Rehearsal/final meeting at venue (if convenient) or another suitable/similar venue.

Confirm ALL wedding details.

Please see at the end of this email, the details and services as per your quotation. If this information is not correct, please contact us soon as possible and if you have any other questions in the meantime, feel free to call or e-mail me.

2.3        You acknowledge that through blocking the Booking Date off, you accept that John Middleton will suffer loss by declining other work for that date, from the date that you agree to these Terms. The non-refundable fees related to that cancellation are considered liquidated damages as a result.

2.4        Subject to the terms and conditions contained within this Agreement, your Booking Fee may be transferred to another date if agreed between the parties.

3.          Payments

3.1        Each party of the Couple will be jointly and severally liable for all payments owing to John Middleton.

All other monies paid will be returned.

4.3        Where Early Notice is not provided, and but you are able to cancel with one month’s notice of Booking Date (being, “the Cut Off Date’), your Booking will be treated as cancelled.

6.2        Unless legislation provides otherwise, it is the Couple’s responsibility to ensure it, and its other vendors, are following government regulations in regard to COVID-19, including those restrictions relating to gatherings and social distancing.

8.3        To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to indemnify John Middleton, and its officers, directors, employees from and against all claims, including reasonable legal costs, resulting from any breach of this Agreement or any activity related to your use of the Services, (including, without limitation, infringement of any third party’s copyright, trade mark, patent or other intellectual property rights anywhere in the world or any negligent or wrongful conduct) by you and any liability for any claim, whether direct, indirect, incidental, special and/or consequential loss even if such loss was not contemplated at the time of making the Booking or accepting these Terms.

9.          Force Majeure

9.1        John Middleton will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or the delay in performance of, any of our obligations under the Agreement that is caused by any “Act or Event Beyond Our Control”. Examples include, but are not limited to, acts of God, flood, fire, warfare, government laws or regulations, electrical fire, strikes by suppliers (‘force majeure circumstances’). If an event outside our control takes place that means the performance of our obligations under the Agreement is impossible, we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and our obligations under the Agreement will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the “Event Outside Our Control”.

9.2        This clause does not apply in circumstances where the “Event Outside Our Control” still makes the Booking possible, but you cancel the Booking or vary the Booking because the alleged “Event Outside Our Control” causes mere inconvenience or changes the Booking in a manner that does not suit you. In this instance, our usual terms apply as if this was a cancellation (or postponement should these terms allow) in accordance with this Agreement.

9.3        In force majeure circumstances, where an alternative date cannot be provided which has resulted from a force majeure event, there will be no monies returned.

9.4        If you choose to book again and an “Event Beyond Our Control” is foreseeable, based on Government guidance, then the booking is done so at your own risk and John Middleton is not liable for any loss suffered as a result of the failure of your second booking to proceed. John Middleton is under no obligation to provide a further date as a result of any cancellation or postponement.

10.       Jurisdiction

10.1     These Terms are governed exclusively by the laws of South Australia. Any legal proceedings relating to them can only be taken in courts with jurisdiction in South Australia.

11.       Severability and Waiver

If the whole or any part of a provision of this Agreement is or becomes invalid or unenforceable under the law of any jurisdiction, it is severed in that jurisdiction to the extent that it is invalid or unenforceable and whether it is in severable terms or not. This does not apply if the severance of a provision of this Contract in accordance with that clause would materially affect or alter the nature or effect of the parties' obligations under this Agreement. Any failure by John Middleton to exercise or enforce any one or more of its rights under these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver of such rights unless such waiver is granted to the Client in writing.

12.       Execution by Parties

This agreement must be executed by each partner named. In instances where it is signed by one party, the signing party acknowledges and warrants that they have the authorisation to execute the agreement on behalf of the other party. In doing so, they also warrant that the other party has read and understood the Terms prior to providing permission to execute.
