NICE DAY FOR A MICRO-WEDDING: Get hitched without the hassle at Merewether Surf House

Couples in Newcastle can now book an affordable micro-wedding at the iconic Merewether Surf House thanks to the NSW Registry of Births Deaths & Marriages Coastal Collection program.

NSW Registrar Amanda Ianna said the program enables couples to get married at iconic locations across the state.

“Births Deaths & Marriages’ micro-wedding service offers couples a once in a lifetime opportunity to get married at a venue of their dreams, making it a truly memorable and affordable day,” Ms Ianna said.

”Micro-weddings are proving very popular with couples, especially following COVID-19 restrictions, with the team at Births Deaths & Marriages doing all the hard work. It’s easy to organise with brides and grooms still able to customise their wedding based on preferences and budget.”

A micro-wedding is defined as an intimate gathering with 35 people or less that gives couples an opportunity to have their dream wedding day on a smaller scale and budget.

The Coastal collection also includes three venues in Sydney including Sergeants Mess in Mosman, Icebergs in Bondi and Clovelly Surf Club.

Couples can choose all the traditional wedding elements such as food and beverage reception packages, accommodation, photography packages, or bouquets and buttonholes and all legal requirements are taken care of.

When you book a micro-wedding, the ceremony, booking of the celebrant and venue, lodgement of notice of intention to marry are all organised for you.

Bookings for Coastal venues are now available with the weddings to take place between February and March 2022 with packages starting from $1,049. Visit nsw.gov.au/bdm to find out more.
