Be Breast Aware and Make a Difference...........
Sue knows personally the importance of being Breast Aware and the effect that Breast Cancer can have on lives of both men and women.
Sue was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 1989, 21 years ago. Sues personal story can be found at http://sites.google.com/a/siouxsspace.com/www/mystory
I am so grateful that I was encouraged to be Breast Aware and it is for that very reason that Civil Celebrant Services Australia is proud to support the McGrath Foundation by donating 10% of the fee charged for all services.
Fundraising will be effective from 1st June 2010, and run until 31st May 2011.
The McGrath Foundation supports McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communitys right across Australia, and educates young women to be breast aware.

Civil Celebrants are people who conduct formal ceremonies in the community, particularly weddings.
Sue also conducts extra-legal ceremonies such as naming of babies, renewal of wedding vows and funerals.
Officiating at a marriage requires that the celebrant be an authorised marriage celebrant...

I'd love to get married in Australia
We'd love you to get married in Australia, thankyou for considering us.
If you are visiting our shores and wish to take advantage of your holiday by marrying in Sydney, I will be only too pleased to be of help not just with a wedding ceremony but with advice relating to other requirements such as wedding coordinator, accommodation, photographer, videographer, florist, Sydney Harbour cruise, etc.
The legal formalities are the same as for Australian couples, but we communicate via e-mails. However, this will not be a problem as I correspond with many couples who come from overseas and by the time we meet in person we feel we already know one another! Please email me as soon as you can at info@CivilCelebrantServicesAustralia.com
or skype me at
and we can talk to one another over the world wide web.
Do I need a deposit?
A non-refundable deposit will be required at the time of lodgement, which will secure your booking date and time.
I was born overseas and have lost my birth documents?
If born overseas and your birth documents have been lost or destroyed, I can help you with a Statutory Declaration.
Do I need all my certificates before I meet you?
It is not mandatory to have the above mentioned documents at the time of booking your celebrant, however they must be shown to the Celebrant before the wedding can take place.
What if I've been married before?
That's ok. In the case of a previous marriage, you will also need to furnish documentary evidence of how the marriage terminated i.e. divorce, or your partner may have passrd away. So you will need either the death certificate or divorce certificate.
What if I'm a overseas visitor wanting to get married in Australia?
For those born overseas a foreign passport is acceptable in lieu of birth certificate. Australian passports are not accepted if you were born in Australia you must have an Australian Birth Certificate. Please contact Sue for more information at info@CivilCelebrantServicesAustralia.com.au
What is a NOIM?
A Notice of Intended Marriage Form (NOIM) can be downloaded from my website http://www.civilcelebrantservicesaustralia.com.au/. This form must be lodged with me a minimum of one month and a day prior to the wedding date and it remainis valid up to 18 months.
When should I book my Celebrant?
It is imperative that you book a Celebrant as soon as you have booked your venue, as good professional celebrants are booked out as much as 12 - 18 months ahead. Ring Sue on 0488 603 532
