Elope to Tasmania - Fact Sheet

It’s not that hard to plan your dream wedding in Tasmania, with the support of a few key

service providers. I have listed some providers on my website and am more than happy to

‘Notice of Intended Marriage’ must be completed and and sent it to your celebrant a

If it is hard for you to both sign this Notice of Intended Marriage (eg. one of you is away

party to the intended marriage ! (However you CAN surprise your guests!)

passports (which contain photo ID).

are travelling just as a couple, I can provide you with your two witnesses to make sure the

marriage is legal.

This state has an abundance of amazing locations for weddings, from the most amazing

natural locations to boutique venues and historic sites. We can match the location to your

personal tastes and preferences.

Most couples like to have some input into the wording of their ceremony. I have structured

my website that no matter where you are in the world, you can simply ‘log in’, and read

through my resources until you have found something you like the sound of.

Alternately, if you are highly creative, or totally minimalist, I can advise the minimum wording

that is required under the Marriage Act, and the rest of the wording (if any) is totally
