Just Wed was established in 2023 by central west marriage celebrant, author and award-winning journalist Sharon Bonthuys, who was concerned by the less than stellar experiences of local residents trying to marry in a Registry Office or Courthouse wedding in Dubbo and surrounds.
As a Registry (of Births, Deaths and Marriages) Office does not exist in Dubbo, people cannot marry in a NSW Government Registry Office ceremony locally. And while the Dubbo Courthouse does conduct weddings, several residents have reported great difficulty arranging to do so since COVID-19.
This is why and how Just Wed came to be. Residents in Dubbo and surrounding communities can have the same type of quick, simple and no-fuss Registry or Courthouse-style wedding, elopement in the presence of a few family members or friends, or a fuss-free legals-only wedding without breaking the bank.
And unlike dealing with the NSW Government, there are no queues to languish in, no waiting beyond the mandatory notice period (you can marry in as little as a month after your paperwork is lodged with us, unless you need to marry urgently), and no hassles.
Just Wed can help you if you need to seek permission to marry under the month's notice period, or if you need to connect with a migration agent. Part of your Just Wed fee also includes a registered marriage certificate which you'll need if changing names, for immigration purposes, or providing official evidence that you've married.
With Just Wed, you're also saving money!
With all of this put together, this is why our motto is: Just Wed: Just So Easy!
