Say Hi to Lanuola and Samuel. Samuel’s family who were watching from South America were not only present to watch but visible to us all through the big screen at the front of the wedding room. The family in South America also spoke to the couple and everyone assembled in the room here in Melbourne. 27 March 2021.
Hope you are well!
Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your work. The ceremony was beautiful and we have received such compliments from our friends and family!
Sorry we missed you at the end of it as we did want to say thank you.
Thank you for being so wonderful to work with.
Wishing you all the best!

Pavlo and Mariia married recently at the Rose Garden at St. Kilda. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful bride.

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.
This wedding venue has it all – close to town, gorgeous decor and beautiful reception room. The Willows in St. Kilda is a sensational venue for Joel and Ashleigh.

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…..
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.
HERE’S WHAT THEY SAID…..
Thank you for conducting such a beautiful ceremony. It was everything that we wanted. It was a very smooth ceremony – just perfect. From the word go your communication was fantastic, and you were very thorough in planning and making sure that all our needs and wishes were met. We would definitely recommend your services to others. Thank you once again.

Here’s what they said…..
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.
