I will be in Tokyo 3 July 2024 – 23 July 2024.
If you are getting married in Japan then, get in touch!
Other times please ask.
“Marriage Celebrant” is not really a thing in Japan.
The profession does not exist as Japanese people usually submit marriage paperwork to the council office first, then have a non-legal wedding ceremony later, or before, with an MC or minister.
Because of that, finding a wedding celebrant is near impossible and finding an MC who is fluent in English, familiar with non Japanese style wedding and understands your specific ceremony needs may not be the easiest task.
I usually travel to Japan in May/June/July period. If you happen to be thinking of having a wedding there during that time, please check with me to see if our plans meet.
If you have a big budget and are happy to fly me there and our schedule meets then I would love to jump on a plane and be your celebrant in Japan!
“Married at the Airport” service
If you are leaving from or coming back to Sydney airport, I can legally marry you at the airport!
I will come to the airport departure or arrival lobby to meet you, we all say a few legal words, sign a document and you are officially married!
To get married legally in Japan, you need to:
– Have your IDs translated and may need authentications and apostilles.
– Visit the local government office in Japan physically for signing. This is separate from the ceremony.
– And you come back with a Japanese document to say you are legally married in Japan, which then needs to be translated by a NAATI qualified translator in Australia to prove your status. You cannot apply for a marriage certificate in Australia because… you didn’t get married here 🙁
It is much easier to do it here in Australia, I will answer all your legal questions you may have, and it would be such an exciting way to start or finish your wedding trip!!
If your flight and my schedule does not align, we can do it elsewhere or on another day.
The fees and terms are as per my “Legals only” package.
Airport visit will have $50 extra charge on top, but no other travel charge.
