Beulah & AJ, welcome to the 2018 Midlands Bridal Fair. We are so excited to introduce you and your business to our Brides- and Grooms-to-be!

We’d love to know more about you and how you got into the industry…

We are a team of marriage officers – Owners AJ and Beulah Haasbroek (husband and wife team) as well as other team members. We are both ordained ministers who have been in ministry for 28 years BUT we offer this service as Marriage officers. We have been doing weddings for many, many years in our various congregations and for the past 12 years we have been doing it on a full-time basis.

What services and expertise does your business offer to clients?

We are a professional, dedicated team of Marriage Officers who take full responsibility for documentation; creating and officiating your dream ceremony; as well as registering your marriage.

You can expect a very personal, customised ceremony that fulfills your needs and desires – simple or elegant –that is memorable,  meaningful and uniquely yours.

Our services:

  1. A variety of ceremonies (15/20 minutes).
  2. We create the ceremony of the couple’s choice by sending an explanation of what can be added and deleted.
  3. Travel to the venue of your choice in KwaZulu-Natal – even to your home or you can come to our wedding room and bring two witnesses with you.
  4. Verify all documents before the wedding.
  5. Complete the marriage register which the couple will sign on their wedding day with TWO witnesses.
  6. The first working day after the wedding we register, capture and lodge the marriage personally at Home Affairs which means that the marriage is on the Home Affairs system as well as on the SA Population Register.
  7. Register your marriage personally at Home Affairs.
  8. We are able to help with documentation for foreign couples.
  9. We are also able to assist with the unabridged international marriage certificate should a couple think of living or working oversees. The SA marriage certificate is only valid in South Africa.
  10. Do an Apostille at the Department: International Relations and Cooperation (Department of Home Affairs in Pretoria).
How long have you been doing this for?

28 years.

Any client testimonial/s you’d like to share?

“We came home to South Africa to share the most important day of our lives with our family and friends and having AJ perform our civil ceremony and Beulah handling all the legalities and paperwork made our special day so much easier.  All our questions were answered with helpful and cheerful attention and AJ brought a lot of fun and humour into our ceremony which lightened the atmosphere and soothed our nerves.  As we live in the UK we were given many different documents to cover any legalities we might encounter one day!  Everything was thought of well in advance! We couldn’t have asked for more from AJ and Beulah and we can highly recommend any couple considering to take this route as our ceremony was a true reflection of who we are and made it all the more special to us.” – Michelle & Paul

“Thank you to Beulah and AJ for your help in the preparation for our wedding. Thank you for sharing our special day with us as we claimed our love and vowed to spend our lives loving each other. Your efficient and professional manner made things go smoothly. The ceremony was wonderful and we will remember it fondly.” – Lauren & Sean

“We wanted to thank you again for such a lovely wedding experience. As we explained to family, it couldn’t have been more perfect. We just love your warmth and excellent service on such short notice. The ceremony, vows, poem – everything was just perfect! We will treasure our wedding day because of you!” – Meredith & Dolf
