Alison and Brett
Ceremony held at Springbrook Mountain Manor

Hi Neal

We just had to take the time to thank you so much. Tony and I are so appreciative for the beautiful ceremony you did for Matt and Kayla. 

Matt and Kayla also asked me to thank you for making their day so special and for dealing with me the way you did leading up to the wedding and on the day (they know it's rare for a bride and groom to hand their wedding over). They also said to tell you that the ceremony went better than they could have imagined.

From communication and putting up with me prior to the wedding to the personal and romantic ceremony you performed. We took your advice and once the wedding started rolling, we left it all up to you and WOW you delivered. Friends and family also commented on all the little touches and extras you did.

The reception was also a hit and we all had a great day/night.

You will be highly recommended from all of us.

Thanks Neal and best wishes for the New Year.
Kind Regards

Scott and Sienna
Ceremony held at Songbirds Tamborine

Hi Neal,

You were a large part of what made the day special, you helped it to run smoothly and easily for all.

As a celebrant, Neal is professional but warm, caring and flexible. He facilitates the wishes and needs of the bride and groom, interacts perfectly with venue staff, photographers and guests.

In a totally unobtrusive manner, he identifies and rectifies incipient issues before they impact on the special day of his clients. Before and during my wedding event on Friday, he helped in many many ways, from planning, advice, administrative suggestions, fantastic ceremony options, to holding bags and umbrellas for photography, helping guests understand the photographer's directions.

During the ceremony itself, he provided the perfect mix of solemnity befitting the occasion, and humanity, warmth and a little humour. He engaged very well with the people there, and really added to the beauty of marrying the woman I love. His experience and empathy really shine. He is the right guy in the right place. We could not imagine a better celebrant.

Thank you Neal. When we renew our vows in a few years time, I would love for you to be a central part of that as well.

Best regards,

Greg and Elsie

Neal,

Rhys and I would like to thank-you for everything you have done for us.

From the moment we met you, you were so polite and willing to adjust the ceremony to suit our needs. I'm sorry we didn't manage to catch you after the ceremony to personally say thank-you but, we couldn't of been happier with your presentation of the ceremony.

After the ceremony we have many of our guests walk up and tell us how great you were throughout the day and we're so glad we found you to be our celebrant. Any people we find looking for a celebrant we will most definitely point them your way. Once again thank-you so much from us newly weds and we wish you all the best in the future.
Sincerely,

Rhys & Hannah.

We were both really pleased with how everything went (except for the stinking heat!) and a number of favourable comments about you were relayed to me. Good luck with your celebant-ing. Hope 2009 is a prosperous and happy year for you.

Concetto
ceremony held at Old Hidden Vale, Grandchester

 Hi Neal

I can't believe 4 weeks have past since our very special night on 5 July. We would like to thank you for playing such an important role in our celebration. You played along with our secret and revealed all with perfection.

You allowed us to run our own ceremony exactly as we wanted it and we were delighted with the way it turned out.

The ceremony was sincere and meaningful while being relaxed and light hearted and it was warm and homely, just as we had hoped. The "surprise" factor created an air of thrill and excitement and we truly had a magic night.

Thanks again Neal. We would certainly recommend your services to others, and wish you well in the future.

Kindest regards

We attended the wedding ceremony of Casey and Mitch in April 2011 at which you officiated and Sarah really liked how you helped make the occasion very special hence this email.

We hope you are available,

The way you conducted the ceremony was outstanding, we loved the way you interacted with us and our guests, allowing us to feel more relaxed and making the ceremony more enjoyable for everyone.

Since the first time that we met you gave us the confidence of knowing everything would be well planned. You put a lot of effort into understanding what our wishes were and bringing them to reality during the ceremony.

The information we required from you was always accurate and ahead of time, and we are very thankful that you managed to make the whole process very smooth and easy for us.

You gave us the 'freedom' to be spontaneous during the ceremony and be ourselves, on one of the most important days of our lives.

Celebrant Brisbane … It has to be Neal Foster, The Marriage Celebrant









 

Neal Foster, The Marriage Celebrant can provide you with a truly beautiful wedding ceremony.

Listed below are some of the wedding ceremonies Neal can perform and some of the elements that can be incorporated in your wedding ceremony.

Traditional Wedding

95% of couples want a nice non - religious ceremony. This is one of Neal’s specialties.
You can have a beautiful meaningful ceremony without having any religion or religious components in your ceremony.

Religious Ceremony

If one of you has been married before and the church says no, it doesn’t mean you can’t be married in a chapel with a celebrant and have religious readings. Neal can organise a beautiful religious ceremony for you.

 

Candle Ceremony

Candles can be incorporated to represent the blending of the two lives or families or both (not recommended for outdoor ceremonies).

Sand Ceremony

Sand can be incorporated to represent the blending of the two lives or families or both too but involves more visible symbolism.

Blended Family Wedding Ceremony

Sand can be incorporated to represent the blending of families and the importance of all of the members of the family in this blended family union. This provides great visible symbolism and involvement from all members of the family unit.

Ring Warming Ceremony

This is a great way to involve the crowd and get them to pass on their best wishes to you.

Handfasting Ceremony

This is where the saying “tying the knot” comes from. The tying of the knot symbolises unity and eternity and was featured in the movie Braveheart with Mel Gibson. Scottish couples love this ceremony and often use their family tartan for this. You can just use a coloured ribbon.

Giving Away

Dad, Mum, Mum and Dad, brother, sister, uncle, aunty or grandparents normally give the bride away. This is a great way to acknowledge their importance. The symbolism of this, if done correctly is also very nice.


Ask The Crowd

This involves acknowledging the importance of family and friends. This adds a bit of fun and is a great one for videos

Ask The Parents

This involves acknowledging the importance of the parents to the couple.

Rose Ceremony

This involves acknowledging the mothers for their contribution to you being who you are today.

Philippine Wedding Ceremony

Philippine Wedding Ceremony Brisbane?

Neal can perform a traditional Philippine Wedding Ceremony with the coins, plate, veil, cord and candles. The symbolism of this ceremony is brilliant and always gets great comments from attendees.

Japanese Wedding Ceremony Gold Coast

Neal understands the Japanese culture and can organise a tandem Japanese wedding ceremony where the ceremony is spoken in both English and Japanese so all in attendance can understand what is happening.

Biker Wedding Ceremony Brisbane

Love your bikes and want a ceremony designed around them? Want to arrive on Harleys or enter through a row of revving Harleys? Want a celebrant who’ll wear the full leather biker gear and understands the lingo? Neal Foster, The Marriage Celebrant can help you organise this.

*Please note some of these ceremonies require an additional investment.

Interpreters, Harleys, candles, sand, containers etc need to be paid for by the couples. Neal can provide you with information sheets that explain what is needed for each of these ceremonies and where the various items can be obtained.Candles, containers, coloured sands etc are very personal things you will be looking at for a very long time, so it is best that you choose these.

As from 1 July 2002, the Family Court and Federal Magistrates Court ceased issuing separate documents for a decree nisi of dissolution of marriage and a decree absolute. They now issue a document headed "Certificate of Divorce" which contains the date of both the decree nisi and the decree absolute. This certificate is evidence of divorce for the purposes of solemnising a marriage (see section 42(10)). If you were divorced prior to that date you will need to provide a copy of the decree absolute. 
Note: Photocopies of documents will not be accepted.

Original Death Certificate (If you have been married previously and your marriage ended due to the death of your partner) plus photocopies

Original Change of Name Certificate

The NOIM should be printed, typed or handwritten in block letters with a black pen.

The NOIM must be lodged with Neal Foster, The Marriage Celebrant no earlier than 18 months before your marriage and no later than one month before your marriage.

If you feel you have a valid reason for not being able to give one month’s notice, then you may apply for a shortening of time to a prescribed authority such as the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriage or your local magistrates court.
