Dianne Moran is a warm and friendly Far North Coast marriage celebrant specialising in creating memorable wedding ceremonies. If you are looking for that one person who can help to make your special day as relaxed as possible and who can create a ceremony to be exactly how you want it, then Dianne is the one - look no further!

My name is Dianne and I am a registered Marriage Celebrant and Justice of the Peace.  I am also a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants.

I would consider it an honour and privilege to be selected to be part of your special day. It is a responsibility that I take very seriously to help ensure your day is stress free and enjoyable - from a simple ceremony to a more formal one.  Yor marriage is the celebration of your love.  Let me help you make your day perfect!

I can help you to personalise your ceremony and vows so that they become a memorable and unique part of your Wedding Day.

My fees are very competitive with others in the area and in many cases are lower.  I will supply you with a tailored, customised quote. However you can be assured that this does not diminish a high standard of service.  My service fee covers all legal requirements including supply, preparation and lodgement of all forms and documents as well as:

-  Personalised attention to ceremony requirements and details to reflect your unique style.  Customised especially for you to include your own special details

-  Complimentary rehearsal

-  I supply a PA System

-  I supply a signing table and chairs

-  I supply a signing pen and pen stand

-  As many meetings as required

-  Unlimited phone and/or email support to discuss your ceremony

-  A free no obligation meeting so that you can decide if I am the right celebrant for you.

I am professional, friendly and caring and would love to hear from you.  I will help to make your special day a happy and memorable occasion.

What else do you need to know before enquiring with Dianne?

Q. How would you describe your wedding ceremony presentation style?
Professional, prepared, relaxed.

Q. What’s your process with couples like?
I usually try to keep things relaxed and simple and to try to make their special day as stress free as possible.  I also work in with the couple to try to make sure I am available at a time suitable to them for any meetings we may have.

Q. Do you specialise in a particular ceremony style or ritual?
Not really.  Usually, the ceremony style or ritual is totally dependent on what the couple wants.

Q. Do you offer to help couples write their wedding vows?
If the couple asks me for assistance with their vows, I definitely do but in the majority of cases the couple know what they want to say in their personal vows to each other.

Q. Do you usually attend a ceremony rehearsal the day before the wedding?
If the couple want a rehearsal, then yes I do.   I offer a complimentary rehearsal where some celebrants charge extra for the rehearsal.

Q. Can you share one or two wedding ceremony readings you like to recommend to couples?
The Art of Marriage by Wilferd A Peterson
“A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the "little" things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say, ”I love you" at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is standing together and facing the world.
It is speaking words of appreciation, and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is not only marrying the right person -- it is being the right partner” 


There is no greater happiness than that of sharing life 

With all its joys, and all its cares, as a loving man and wife 

For love gives life new meaning, and has a special way 

Of growing stronger, deeper, with every passing day 

Life if more fulfilling, more rewarding when you’re sharing 

The very special joys that come with loving, giving and caring. 

Q. What’s the best review you’ve ever received from a couple?
I think it is an honour to get a complimentary review and so I would not like to single out just one.

Q. Can you provide ceremony script samples if a couple would like to see them?
I always provide a couple with sample ceremonies as well as a draft ceremony that they can use to create ideas for their ceremony.

Q. What packages do you offer and are there any additional fees?
I do have packages but usually work with the couple to provide a tailored package for their needs.

Q. What else would you like couples to know about what you do?
I am easy to get along with, approachable, professional, ensure a high standard of service, am reliable with an emphasis on attention to detail.

Easy Weddings Special Offer


Book your wedding with me by the 30th June 2022 to receive a standard marriage certificate valued at $60.  This is the official certificate issued by Registry Births, Deaths & Marriages after the marriage has been registered.  It is additional to the decorative certificate that you receive at the time of your ceremony.

Questions and Answers

How much notice is required to get married?

Dianne Moran

The Notice of Intended Marriage must be given to the celebrant no later than one month before the wedding date and no sooner than 18 months before the wedding date.  There are specific conditions that can allow a shortened timeframe and if this situation arises contact your celebrant for further information.

What identification documents have to be provided?

Dianne Moran

In order for the Notice to Intended Marriage to be completed, the celebrant is required to sight documents to prove date and place of birth and also photo ID for proof of identification.

An original birth certificate or passport is required for proof of date and place of birth.  A passport or drivers licence can be used for proof of identification.

If one of the parties to the marriage has previously been married, the celebrant has to sight the original decree absolute, certificate of divorce or divorce order or overseas equivalent or the original death certificate. 

Who can be a legal witness?

Dianne Moran

Two people over 18 years of age are required as legal witnesses and ideally should know the parties to the marriage.  They can be family members such as mother, father, sister or friends.  A celebrant is not responsible for providing witnesses.

Can we personalise our vows?

Dianne Moran

Yes you can.  I will provide examples to give you some ideas but your vows are very personal and I suggest that you write them yourselves.  I will review them for you and offer suggestions if necessary.  You can write them separately or jointly.

It is a legal requirement that specific minimum words be inlcuded in your vows but once this requirement has been met, you can add your personal vows.

How do we apply for a Marriage Certificate?

Dianne Moran

The easiest way to do this is to ask your celebrant to organise it for you.  By doing this it will save you a lot of time and paperwork.  I can order the certificate for you online when I register your marriage with Births, Deaths & Marriages.  The current price for a NSW Certified Copy is $60.

I would highly recommend Dianne Moran for being our Marriage Celebrant. Dianne guided us every step of the way & helped with all of the Legal paperwork where I wouldn’t have known where to start. She was very punctual and made sure everything on the day ran as smooth as it could for such miserable weather on our special day. I am so thankful that we could have her guidance in our special day.

Dianne Moran  

Thank you Hayley. Even though the weather was terrible, your special day was beautiful. I am so glad that I could share the happiness and joy of your wedding day.

Dianne went above and beyond to make our special day so magical! The whole process was very easy and ran smoothly. Dianne was so patient and very kind. We couldn't have had a better celebrant! Thank you so much Dianne ❤

Dianne Moran  

Thank you so much Michelle. It was my pleasure to be able to make your special day so special. You both deserved it after having to cancel last year.

22 Oct 2020

Dianne was an incredible soldier for us with organising some complex issues we were faced with and rescued us at the last minute and carved time aside in her busy schedule to perform the ceremony to our complete wishes with no hesitation. Dianne was thoughtful, considerate and above all sensitive to our every need. Dianne has a superb non-confrontational demeanor and presents beautifully and above all professionally. We cannot sing her praises more highly enough other than to say that she very much deserves serious consideration should you be planning your wedding and worried about picking the right person to represent you on your big day. We truly wish Dianne all the very best in her future celebrant endeavours.

Dianne Moran

We would highly recommend Dianne Moran was a marriage celebrant. She was able to guide us easily through the administrative process and was also very helpful with ideas for the ceremony itself. Dianne was professional, warm and friendly. She was instrumental in making our ceremony turn out exactly how we had wanted it

Dianne Moran  

Thank you Fiona for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to work with both of you and to help you plan and organise your ceremony to be exactly how you wanted it to be.

We wanted a simple, low key ceremony and that’s exactly what Diane gave us. Communication was perfect and she even traveled to Grafton to meet us halfway to discuss ceremony details and do paperwork (thank you for that). The ceremony was fun and relaxed and all our friends and family enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you Diane for making our special day perfect!

Dianne Moran  

Thank you Jenny and Adam. I am so glad I was able to help to make your special day perfect! It was my pleasure working with both of you.

Dianne was absolutely lovely. From the start, she was easy to contact and quick to respond to any and all queries. She smoothed out the whole process, which allowed us to focus on our special day. On meeting, Dianne was warm and friendly. She created a relaxed atmosphere and guided us through everything in preparation and after our wedding day. We would definitely recommend her to any couple planning to get married.

Dianne Moran  

Thank you Danni! It was my pleasure working with both of you and helping you to plan your ceremony for your special day.

Dianne was great! We didnt do a rehearsal as we didnt want to and she did everything really well. She called and followed up with everything we needed to do or had questions for. She made us both feel incredibly comfortable. Thank you Dianne

Dianne Moran  

Hi Julie. It was my pleasure to help you both enjoy your special day with no stress or worries.

31 Aug 2019

Dianne was fantastic and very open to ideas. We didnt have a black and white straight forward wedding and it wasnt a problem. We did a naming ceremony for our daughter at the same time which she was happy to accommodate for. Her communication lines were always open whenever we needed her and she even did a rehearsal with us the day before the wedding. She communicated with our music supplier so that everything in the ceremony ran smoothly on the day. we always recommend Dianne

Dianne Moran  

Thank you Cassie. It was a pleasure to be able to incorporate your naming ceremony into your wedding ceremony so that you could both have your special day exactly as you wanted it.

Dianne performed our Commitment ceremony and did a lovely job. She is sincere and down-to-earth, making her very easy to deal with. She gave us many options to choose from and was happy to let us cut & paste all the wording to personalise our ceremony. We had many guests comment on what a lovely job Dianne did. We happily recommend Dianne's services.

Dianne Moran  

It was a privilege to be part of your Commitment Ceremony and to help make your day so special. Thank you for your lovely review.
