James Stephen advises couples who are planning to marry that there are certain legal requirements in Australia. Both must be at least 18 years of age. However, marriage is still possible if one is under the age of 18, as long as parental consent is provided. And a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) has to be filed with an authorised marriage celebrant at least one calendar month before the wedding ceremony. Various documents will also be needed, such as passport, birth certificate or a birth extract. For those born overseas, they will need to submit an overseas passport, translated into English, or an overseas birth certificate. For those previously married, they will need to show a divorce or death certificate. At least two witnesses who are at least 18 years of age will be required for the wedding ceremony. These witnesses will need to understand English or else an interpreter will have to be present during the ceremony.

In creating the various details of the ceremony for the couple, James Stephen will need to get various information. He will email the couple a questionnaire that they will have to complete. The questions are all based on the kind of relationship that the couple has. To make it even more exciting, he suggests that each one fill the questionnaires separately because there will be some differences and similarities in their responses. Once he has written the details of the ceremony, he will ask the couple to look it over and they can make any changes they want and then send it back to James.
