Will you be wed on St Valentine’s Day – February 14, 2010?

By Michele the Celebrant - 5 January 2010 27

Just a quick post to let you know that if you wish to marry on St Valentine’s Day this year – which happens to be a Sunday – you must lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage with your celebrant by next Wednesday, January 13.

Please note here that the ACT Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages no longer has a celebrant service. You must find a private civil celebrant or a religious celebrant to officiate for you.

My congratulations and best wishes to you both

What’s Your opinion?

Well in this age of technology you’d think that there would be someone who does that. Hmmm an online relationship must be so much easier than a normal one.

Thanks for reminding me, now I have exactly 8 days to find a girl to marry. Anyone know any cute single girls <30 years?

Hahah +1, but I need to find a dude.

Free on February 14? hahaha

Hahahaha surprisingly yes. Haha.

I wonder if Michele the Celebrant does online ceremonies for people who met on the RiotACT the week before the deadline.. lol

Why would you get married Valentines’s Day? How about having your own day instead of a crappy hallmark holiday?

Thanks toriness, I do need to give more information.

If you want to have your wedding on Valentine’s day, and it’s according to the Civil Partnerships Act and not the Marriage Act, you’ve got till Tuesday February 9 to give your Notice of Intention to Enter into a Civil Partnership to the Registrar-General.

The Deputy Registrar-General conducts commitment ceremonies, so you have a choice about finding a government or private civil partnership notary.

Although I’ve conducted commitment ceremonies before the Civil Partnerships Act came into effect, I’m not a registered notary so I can only post blogs as a celebrant at this stage. Of course, any couple wishing to have a commitment ceremony or vow renewal ceremony on Valentine’s Day with no legal component can simply do so on the day.

Sorry I can’t help bd84. There’s always Valentine’s 2011 – better luck next time!
