Did you know that 72% of couples choose to engage a civil celebrant for their marriage ceremony?
And….. 98% of those couples want to get married on a Saturday at about 3.00pm?
And… 99% of those couples want to get married between September and April….. excuse me whilst I do a little bit of maths….
That’s approximately 35 Saturdays.
And… going on previous years – 12,320 couples got married in Western Australia in 2016 [Stat: BDMWA]…. and now with the historic change in the marriage equality law that number will only rise…. there are approximately 3,000 (this number was taken from a 2011 poll, so can’t be trusted today, but the numbers prove my point.) same sex couples in WA, so let’s say that 50% want to get married….. that’s 13,820 couples wanting to get married – over 35 Saturdays…. I’m afraid, as much as I would like to perform all the marriage ceremonies, I physically can’t.
So this is where I’m happy to share the love.
Whenever you contact me and I am already booked, I’ll always refer to you to one of my lovely colleagues.
Remember, you are allowed to get married on a Sunday or even during the week and there is no rule that says you have to wait until 3pm…. just saying.
