Pre-marriage Education

As a celebrant it is my duty to encourage you to seek pre-marriage education before the big wedding day. This is not a counselling session. They are education sessions that help with communication, conflict management, learning about each other’s differences and how to grow together in your marriage. It’s a tool kit to help you both when bumps come up.

Below are 3 Providers of Pre-marriage Education. I have also supplied the information from the Australian Government “Happily Ever… Before and After” brochure. Click on the button below to read the brochure. Have a read of this flyer and look at the website of each provider. You might be surprised about how valuable this would be for you both as a couple.
