One of the most important days in your life!

TESTIMONIAL Matt & Jacqui (9)

Dear Pastor Craig,

We would like to express our sincere thanks for all you did with and for us leading up to and on our wedding day. We really valued your input and advice for ideas on the ceremony and the different sermon and ceremony options you shared with us, making putting the ceremony together so easy and an enjoyable process.  Your guidance and support during these sessions was so valuable. Having you share a sermon and marry us on the day was such a privilege for us and a blessing – you helped us both to relax and we had so much positive feedback from our guests (both Christian and non-Christian guests) who really enjoyed both your sermon and the ceremony as a whole. People commented that the sermon was interesting and had some great advice for life and relationships too. Thank you also for sending us some lovely photos from our day, that too was a very thoughtful gesture. We look forward to sending you some photos once we receive them from our photographer from the day and would definitely recommend you to future couples looking for a pastor and celebrant to marry them for their special day.

Thank you once again for everything, we value all you have done so much and are so thankful – you are a blessing!!!

Lots of love,

Matt and Jacqui Hirsch.

Hi Craig,

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

HERE’S WHAT THEY SAID…..

David & Lauren – 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.

WHAT THEY SAID…..

Dear Craig,

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.

ARRIVING IN STYLE!

Your Wedding

In the Moment

Your Christian Wedding Ceremony

Hi there, I’m Craig Anderson. Weddings are so much fun.Celebrante 1

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 through a 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.

Kind regards,

Craig Anderson
