Episode Notes

We know it’s been a while, but welcome back to The Celebrant Talk Show! In this episode we’re responding to questions from you, our lovely listeners. Feel free to send us your questions by email to hello@celebrant.fm, or even record yourself asking us your question and send us the audio file!

In this episode we look at:

- what’s going on (or not going on) with New South Wales BDM’s online marriage registration system
- insight into Customer Relationship Management software, in particular Tave and Studio Ninja. If any of you have had personal experience with 17Hats, Dubsado, or any other system, we’d love to hear about it and share it with our listeners!
- how to marry people in Bali (legally here first, emotionally there second)
- how to write the couple’s story - it’s much easier once you have a real live couple to work with! Sarah tells us how she approaches writing a couple’s story, and Josh tells us why he doesn’t write a story at all.
- all things “vibe” - tips and tricks for getting guests in the mood, engaging with the guests and the couple, and dealing with tough crowds
- some tricky legal questions about parties’ fathers and whether or not they should be listed on the NOIM, and about evidence of legal name changes
- who can witness a NOIM, specifically under the title “legally qualified medical practitioner” - download this list of medical specialties registered by the Medical Board of Australia. If the qualification isn’t on this list, they can’t witness the signatures on a NOIM!

As always, we want to know what you think and what you want to hear more of. Hit us up on Facebook or by email at hello@celebrant.fm! Thanks for listening :)
