Michael married us in 2015 and we're still happily married. Our ceremony was nicely done. Simple and sweet. It was great that we could have a bit of a joke to calm the nerves and it was a good casual affair. Michael made us feel at ease and we felt relaxed (just a little bit of nerves). Michael was professional and calming. We appreciated that he incorporated our friends in the ceremony itself and made it meaningful for everyone. Certainly have happy memories.We would have no hesitation recommending Michael and Simple ceremonies to anyone.
Firstly, I would like to thank you very much for everything you did for us on our special day. You were the celebrant for our wedding on 12/12/15 and we would both like to let you know what an amazing day we had. We were originally planning on going into a registry office to sign the wedding papers, however, Luiza’s friend recommended you as an excellent celebrant who could marry us. When we looked at your website we saw that it was actually cheaper for us to be married by you than for us to go to the registry office, and your weddings are in the park underneath the Harbour Bridge in North Sydney, which we thought was amazing and would be a great way to be legally married. We also saw your videos on your website and thought you seemed like a great person to be our celebrant. What I can say about our day is that the location was amazing and our wedding was perfect. Our impressions of you is that you’re a happy, friendly and approachable person and we were very lucky that you were our celebrant. You helped us with everything we needed to do and say throughout the day and helped us with all those very important wedding vows and wedding photos. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a simple or inexpensive wedding and know this day will be just as amazing as our bigger ceremony in Mexico where both our families and larger group of friends will be able to attend.
The day was fabulous and we had nothing but great feedback from our guests regarding the way the ceremony was conducted. One comment we heard was that it looked like Michael really enjoyed being a part of the ceremony, that is something that we both felt and appreciated. Michael provided great assistance in getting all planned, making the whole process simple, relaxed and enjoyable. Thanks again.
Thank you so much for your time at our wedding in 2015, you were absolutely amazing. Your energy and sense of humour made us feel very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourself. We couldn’t have picked a better celebrant to share our special day with us. We are super happy. Highly recommended!
Save between $89 and $168 over the government run registry office… but make the process simpler, easier and more personal … and still end up with exactly the same legal outcome. Save $100s when compared to other celebrants.
* we don’t require an interview prior to your ceremony * we offer a personal ceremony * we are far better value!
Compassion between Simple Ceremonies and NSW Government Registry Office
I have been an Authorised Marriage Celebrant since 2004 and have officiated at 100s of ceremonies. Over that time I have seen what is, and importantly, what isn’t critical, to a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. By eliminating the things that aren’t critical, I am able to reduce the effort, fuss and expense you have to go through.
Simple things such as;
streamlining the lodgement of the Notice of Intended Marriage
fixed locations for your ceremony
on-line registration of your marriage with Birth, Deaths and Marriages NSW
