Relationships Australia

Prior to getting married my husband and I attended a weekend relationship course run by Relationships Australia. We would highly recommend this course to other couples. We were taught about the psychological theory behind relationships, the effect of a family of origin on your relationship, conflict resolution techniques and the languages of love. A weekend is a significant commitment but it was a good opportunity to take a breath in the lead up to our wedding day.

For some couples, the idea of a big wedding with all the expense, organisation, excitement and drama is definitely the last thing they want. They just want to get married.

Often these couples simply book an appointment at their local Registry Office, believing that’s the only option. There are alternatives – which means couples have choices about timing and venues.

It is absolutely possible to have a ‘low key’ marriage ceremony that is still dignified and joyful.

You can choose to have a minimal script, with the proceedings taking less than 15 minutes.

Getting married at Breakfast or during a Sundowner might be rather lovely?

All that is needed are 2 witnesses over the age of 18 – they don’t even have to be known to the couple.  How much fun to invite 2 strangers from a nearby table in a restaurant for instance!!   Wouldn’t they have a story to tell the next day…..
