There’s nothing more sweeter than a little girl in a tutu, and if there was nothing more exciting for you than growing up to be a ballerina, make dreams come true with the ballerina bride style. Vintage and French inspired pieces like furniture, china, silver, chandeliers and crystal champagne glassware brings this fantasy to life. Think plenty of tulle and satin to adorn the day.
Imagine a lyrical performance from a ballerina en pointe before you make a grand entrance. Think ultra girly pinks, more ribbon than you can shake a stick at and an abundance of roses and you’re there. For your gown, big tulle skirts with clean lined bodices are a must paired with a sweet-heart neckline to embrace that femininity and elegance of a ballet theme. Think about perhaps including some chantilly lace for that ethereal look and a waist band to show off your curves.

The last thing a newlywed couple want when they return to the country is to find out that after the months of planning and money spent on their Big Day, it was not a legal ceremony. So how do you make sure that you and hubby-to-be will be recognised in Australia as married?
We’ve done the research and put together the basics that you need to know if you’re getting hitched overseas.
Trust us on this, you’ll be referring to the Australian Governments Smartraveller website regularly as your wedding date approaches.
OBTAIN A CNI
As an Australian citizen or permanent resident, the foreign government may request that you have a Certificate of No Impediment to Marriage (CNI) issued. DFAT in Australia can issue a CNI, however many foreign governments will only accept CNIs issued by the Australian embassy within their country.
CONTACT THE EMBASSY/CONSULATE
It is important to take into consideration that all countries have their own laws, legislation and requirements. Some foreign countries require to see both your passport and birth certificate to complete the marriage. In order to make sure your marriage is legitimate, it is best that you contact the embassy or consulate of the country in which you would like to marry for their advice on all marriage requirements.
HIRE A LOCAL PLANNER
A wedding planner based in the country you are getting married in is a blessing in disguise. Not only will they be fluent in and speak the language, but they will know all the suppliers and where to source products from and can help you you’re your budgeting. Also, being native to the country and having planned weddings before, they will be familiar to the governments rules and regulations, meaning your wedding will go of without a hitch.
IS IT LEGAL IN AUSTRALIA?
Marriages entered into overseas are generally recognised as valid in Australia
if the marriage was recognised as valid under the law of the country in which it was entered into, at the time when it was entered into; or
providing the marriage would have been recognised as valid under Australian law if the marriage had taken place in Australia
