Your Christian Wedding Ceremony
Your special day is coming up soon. I would love to help you make it a truly memorable and meaningful day for you both.
I have been a celebrant for over 30 years. The reason I love it so much is to see that moment when two lives are joined together. It is such an amazing moment. To see the sparkle in their eyes; that love and the sense completeness in joining two lives; wow!
When two lives are joined together in marriage; a new family begins. To think that I can be a part of that and help you to make it the best start possible, means that the future can be filled with real hope. I believe I can help you to make a great start by excellent planning, showing you how to find your true heart message to share with each other in the ceremony and if you would like; guiding you to Pre-Marriage counselling course as well.
My background as a Christian minister has given me the experience in conducting weddings and funerals and many other occasions. Also I am more than happy to also conduct events that are secular or non-religious to fit in with your needs and those of your family.
If you believe that I am the right celebrant for you then contact me right now and let’s get together to begin the journey.

TESTIMONIALS – WHAT ARE THEY SAYING ABOUT CRAIG?
We were planning our Melbourne wedding from overseas and in the absence of a connection with a particular church or minister, we wanted a Christian celebrant. This was a little more difficult than we first anticipated but after some searching on the internet we found Craig on Celebrants Online. We got to know Craig by communicating via Skype. He is a very warm and friendly person who made us feel relaxed and confident that he was just the sort of person we were looking for. He took the time to ask about our backgrounds and beliefs so he could understand what sort of wedding ceremony we wanted. He gave us suggestions without pushing his own ideas onto us. Craig was constructive and encouraging as he took us through the Prepare-Enrich pre-marriage programme. On the day, everything was just perfect. We had a ceremony that was very meaningful to us and sensitively delivered by Craig. All our guests were very moved. Thank you, Craig, for making our
wedding day so special.

Tony and I have returned from our honeymoon and we just wanted to send you an email to thank you for everything leading up to as well as on the 16th March 2013. You made the whole process very easy for us and we were both very comfortable throughout, though it would have been better had I not lost my voice! We will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends when their time comes. Thank you again and God bless.
Kind regards, Tony and Beverley Luong

I am sorry that I have not replied to your email earlier. The photos you sent are us beautiful! Thank you so much. More importantly, we would like to thank you for performing our marriage ceremony with such enthusiasm and passion. We definitely felt God’s presence through your prayers and words. All of the guests kept saying how romantic and peaceful the ceremony was because of your sophisticated facilitation skills. We could not have imagined any one more perfect for the job than you were. We felt blessed to have you marry us. As per your request, I have attached the photos of the ceremony that you are in. These are only amateur ones that my friends took as we have not received the professional ones yet. Once we do, i will email you some clearer ones. We really hope that we get the chance to meet you again someday. I’ll ensure that I recommend you to any friends who are getting married in the future.
Take care. Yours sincerely and gratefully, Tara and Anish.

Craig is a fantastic pastor and marriage celebrant. He is professional, friendly and humorous, and assisted us throughout the whole process by providing plenty of resources and guidance, which made everything very easy. He was always available to take phone calls or respond to emails to help us through any queries we had. The day of the wedding ran perfectly and we had many comments on how beautiful the ceremony was.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for last night. We loved our ceremony and we were so happy with the way that you ran it. All of our family appreciated how calm and natural you were, just what we wanted!! Thank you so much for these photos! I didn’t get to see any of the conservatory set up, that’s so great! We were so happy with our ceremony! Thank you again, we couldn’t be happier with how the night began!
Thank you so so much! – Love Joel and Ash

On behalf of my husband and, I we would like to extend our heartfelt thank you to Craig for not only conducting our wedding ceremony but his professionalism and friendliness throughout the organisational process of our wedding.
The right celebrant was very important to us and we were looking for someone that we felt comfortable with and we knew instantly with Craig from our very first meeting that he was very personable, like somebody we had known for years.
It was clear not only just for us to have the perfect ceremony but we could see with Craig it was important for him to ensure that the couple have a memorable day. He paid great attention to detail in assisting us with our vowels and various resources and answered all questions we had and he was able to help us personalise our wedding ceremony. Like a typical stressed out bride I can recall changing my vowels the night before the wedding and I contacted Craig and he replied promptly and he accommodated with no hesitations!!
All I can say is that the day of the ceremony was perfect, you only need to look at the photos to see how happy and relaxed we and our guests were and for that we will always be grateful to Craig for being an enormous part of our big day.
