A Quick Message From the Creator of the
Name Change Kit

Author

Hi there, lovely new brides and grooms! Congratulations on your wedding.

My name is Vanessa, and I’m the creator behind After The Wedding and this Name Change Kit.

After my wedding I embarked upon the long and tiring process of changing my name after I got married.

What I thought would be an exciting thing to do — take on my husband’s name — turned into one big hassle!

I spent hours ploughing through the Internet, waiting on hold, and asking people I knew how to go about changing my name.

There was no such thing as a "name change kit" in existence to help.

Eventually, I decided to compile all of the information I had gathered and give it to other newlywed friends…

and that was the beginning of my kit! I love being able to share this information to help other new brides and grooms change their names.

My hope is that this kit helps return a bit of the fun and nostalgia to one of the last projects in your wedding journey: changing your name.

It was the first ever to be offered as a downloadable kit in Australia — and while a lot of copycat kits have come and gone over the years, I still believe it’s the best DIY name change kit out there.

In fact, I’m so confident in how helpful the After The Wedding Name Change Kit will be to you that I’ll give your money back if the kit doesn’t help you with your name change.

I’ve spent years creating and refining this kit, and it now includes input from other brides all over Australia!

All of the instructions you need to change your name are at your fingertips right now.



Congratulations on your marriage, and all the best for your life as a new person … if only by name! ;)

X Vanessa

FAQ's
Your Questions Answered

Yes, every state and territory in Australia is covered in the one kit. Some state's vary slightly in processes, and this is covered in the kit. If you were married in one state and live in another, the name change kit will have you sorted too!

As long as you are an Australian citizen, yes, you can use this kit if you were married in Australia OR overseas.

As long as you are an Australian citizen, yes! Keep in mind that the kit will only help you change your name in Australia, we don't cover organisations in other countries and we aren't able to help with things like changing your name on immigration paperwork or visas.

This name change kit will help you with any type of name change you like. You can change to your spouse’s name, hyphenate your name, double barrel your name, make up a new name, change your first and middle name as well, and any other kind of name change you can think of!

I check with organisations, usually bi-monthly, to see if there has been any change to their name change forms or processes. If there has, I update the kit, tell you about the update, and you can download the update FREE, for 12 months from your date of purchase.

Definitely! Your name change kit comes with 12 months of free updates, so even if you're not getting married for months you can be assured that all of the forms and the name change process will still be current and valid when it comes time to change your name.

Send me an email with the name and email address you used when purchasing and I'll send it to you again. Easy!
