NOT TAKING BOOKINGS FOR 2021 Let's make a fun and exciting ceremony, with the ease of having a Celebrant that understands you. My services are tailored, personal, memorable and EASY! :)

My name is Nick and I am one of the youngest Civil Marriage Celebrants in Canberra and Australia. I am approaching your wedding ideas with fresh new perspectives for a tradition that has been practiced in nearly every culture for all time. 

I believe that your wedding should be YOUR way! I will listen to your ideas and create a personally designed ceremony around them. I am able to assist you if you are having trouble coming up with the words to say about the one you love the most. 

A wedding is the most important time in the lives of a couple and I will be honoured to be able to assist you, from engagement to happily married. If you are wanting a wedding to embrace the classic traditions or to be unique to you and your partner, I am the Celebrant for you.

I am based in Canberra but can travel to any part of Australia (includes travel costs outside ACT.)

We could not have been happier with our choice to have Nick as our celebrant on our special day. Nick was warm and friendly whenever we spoke to him and always willing to assist where required. On the day, he was presented immaculately and conducted our ceremony smoothly and ensured it was full of love. We cannot recommend him highly enough - thanks for making our special day so perfect! x

Nick was an absolutely sensational celebrant. He tailored the wedding to how we wanted it, making great suggestions along the way. He was very flexible, adding last minute requests, while personalising the whole thing to ensure it felt genuine and like "our day", not a stock standard off the shelf product. I recommend Nick very highly!

Nicholas Forbes did an amazing job for us, it was just as casual and relaxing as we wanted it to be, and he followed everything we wanted! If you don't want one of those old boring ceremonys, Nick is the one to go with!

Nick was an incredible choice for our big day. He ensured everything ran smoothly for our surprise wedding. Nick wrote a wonderful ceremony that was perfect for us & it was conducted beautifully. He followed up with every detail & was extremely approachable with any changes. We can’t recommend Nick enough!
