The Process: Willie usually meets twice with the couple prior to the wedding to discuss some detail for the ceremony. The first consultation with you via ZOOM or in person if you are available in Cape Town, to explain the legal process, documentation as required by Home affairs, and discuss various options for your ceremony.
(Keep in mind, apart from the Legal part of the ceremony, the rest is your show, and you are welcome to include whatever you like to make it special for yourself and to entertain your guests.)
A second consultation with the couple a few days before the wedding in person to finalise every detail of your wedding show and a confirmation of all your legal documentation requirements. A personally tailored, beautiful wedding ceremony of approximately 30-minutes, that focuses on all the important aspects of love and respect in marriage, presented in a loving and comfortable atmosphere. Registration of your marriage with the South African Department of Home Affairs and Immigration.
An affordable Professional Service.
