I'd love to be apart of your day and provide you with a beautiful Christian Wedding that will make your wedding day truly meaningful and memorable.

So many couples who contact me would love a Christian Wedding Ceremony, not just a legal statement, but something truly meaningful that expresses their love for one another and their commitment before God to do life's journey with this special person.

I can even pray for you during the ceremony and ask that God join your lives together so "the two shall become one".

Craig Anderson is a Christian minister and has been a celebrant for over 40 years. He loves to see and be apart of that moment when two lives are joined together.

Craig 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; providing you with a Pre-Marriage education course as well.

He would love to help you make it a truly memorable and meaningful day for you both.

Get in touch to begin the journey of your new lives together.


Often I find that priests and pastors are only able to marry people from their own church. This local church (Infinity Church) has a ministry to provide marriage services for those who do not have a church of their own at present or maybe their own pastor does not have marriage credentials or you're from out of state and want to get married in Melbourne or Victoria; then we can provide a beautiful Christian service for you.

Ps. Craig Anderson

Gold Class Experience

The usual fee is $850. For $1100 your gold class experience you receive:

1. I travel to meet you anywhere you want to meet (Twice)

2. I pay for your legal wedding certificate (normally it's an extra $64.40 for other couples.

3. I travel to anywhere with 200kms of my place in Epping for the ceremony location.



Yes, no problem. I can perform your ceremony anywhere you want. In a Park, Garden, on a boat, in a home,  in an old church, or historic venue. (No skydiving please!)

Usually I will meet with you twice. The first time we sign the Notice of Intention to Marry Form (NOIM) This must be done a minimum of one month and one day before the wedding. Then we will meet onece more nearer the wedding day to run through the ceremony details. 

Yes, for sure! You can write your own vows. There is only a requirement that the vows contain words to the effect that you promise a life long committment. Apart for that you can say anything you like! I will guide you with help on this if you need it.

I ask that couples make a deposit of $150 to secure the date with me. The balance is payable any time up until a week before the wedding.


All the Legal Stuff……..

1. The first document we sign is called the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) This must be signed at least a month before the wedding day. It must be witnessed by the celebrant or a police officer or a doctor, lawyer or pharmacist. (see you copy in the folder called – YOUR FORMS TO FILL OUT.

2. Just before the wedding, we will sign a document called Declaration of No Legal Impediment – which is a statutory declaration saying that you both do not know of any reason why you can’t get married (in particular, you are not married already to another person, you are not related to each other, you are old enough) – Every couple getting married in Australia must sign this before the wedding ceremony.  We normally do this at the last in-person meeting. 

3. At the ceremony we will sign two marriage certificates. One for you to keep (it’s a decorative one) One that I keep, and I send a scan of it to the Dept. of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

On the day after the wedding, I upload the marriage certificate, the original Notice of Intention to Marry Form (NOIM) and the Document of No Legal Impediment to the Dept. of Births Deaths and Marriages, 

The real Legal Certificate for your use…..

The Marriage certificate that I provide for you on the wedding day is a decorative one and you keep it and frame it or whatever you like. But it’s not a legal document. To obtain a proper legal marriage certificate either:

1. I can order you one when I upload your wedding documents (Cost = $62.30) 

2. OR, you can apply to the Registrar of births deaths and marriages at this link – https://www.bdm.vic.gov.au/marriages-and-relationships/get-a-marriage-certificate  

It takes about 4 weeks to get a certificate after the lodgement of papers. 

You will need a legal marriage certificate if you want to change your name on a bank account or passport etc.  You will not be notified of its availability until you order one. If you want a legal marriage certificate then let me know if you want me to order it or you can go online anytime later and order one.  You can do that anytime but the earliest time to receive it will be a month from the wedding date.

You will be fully legally married from the moment we all sign the papers on the day.

I do all the lodgement of papers – you don’t need to do anything. Just request a legal certificate if you need one at the BDM website.

Hope this is clear and helps,

Looking forward to seeing you

Craig was amazing from the beginning. He was well prepared and very informative about the process and prepared us for what to expect of the day. We had met with him twice before our wedding in which he had prepared us for everything. We had written our own vows and panicked on the day of the wedding cause we wanted to print them out rather than reading them from our phones, Craig had printed and prepared our written vows for us which was an amazing feeling. Thank you so much Craig. You were incredible and we appreciate everything you have done for us.

Pastor Craig was perfect for our wedding! He was so patient, and so flexible, and so understanding. His voice was calm, and he personalised our ceremony to exactly how we wanted it to be. We can't thank you enough for marrying us on our special day! We also did pre-marital course with Pastor Craig and that meant he knew us better before the wedding as well and the course itself was so helpful for my now husband and myself to know each other better! Strongly recommend!

We are immensely grateful to Craig for his exceptional role as our marriage celebrant. From the moment we met him, it was clear that he genuinely cared about creating a meaningful and personalized ceremony for us. Craig took the time to get to know us as a couple, our values, and our love story, which he beautifully incorporated into the ceremony. His warm and compassionate demeanor instantly put us at ease, and his ability to connect with our families and friends was remarkable. Craig's delivery and presence during the ceremony were heartfelt and sincere, leaving a lasting impact on us and our guests. His words and guidance created an atmosphere of love, unity, and joy. We cannot thank Craig enough for his wisdom, professionalism, and genuine care. He played an integral part in making our wedding day truly unforgettable.

Great personality, gave various options for how the ceremony would be delivered and was extremely flexible, and in the end, delivered a wonderful ceremony with a great level of professionalism and joy. Craig has a really good blend of being traditional, but also being modern. He impressed us.

I am a terrible public speaker. How can I get ready for my wedding ceremony?

Hi there. Was hoping for some advice on how to tackle ceremony nerves so I can get through my vows. I really want to write my own vows but have always been terrible at speaking in front of crowds. What can I do ahead of time and on the day?

Christian Weddings Melbourne

Most of my couples allow me to lead them in the reciting of their vows.

I think this is best as then you can look your partner in the eyes as you make this really important promise. You don't need to remember anything, just let the celebrant lead you through by saying three or four words and you repeat after them. Often in my weddings the celebrants voice is not amplified but the voice of the bride and groom are spoken into a microphone so that what you say is heard much more than the celebrants initial version.

So your only task then is to write the vows that you feel best express you love and committment to your partner. In this task the only legal requirement is that there s a committment to a life-long relationship.


What's the best way to break up with a bridesmaid?

Our wedding isn't until 2024 but now I'm regretting asking my bridesmaids to be bridesmaids so early. There's one who's making me regret the decision but I don't want to burn our friendship. How can I approach this with her?

Christian Weddings Melbourne

Obviously your friendship with her is important. So you want to protect that, yet ask her to change from being a bridesmaid to not being a bridesmaid. Do you want her to attend the wedding? If yes, then what is she good at? Is there a role she can play that is different? For example decorate the ceremony venue or the receoption space or reception tables. Or is there a role involving co-ordinating the photographer's role and all the family shots?  If you can find a role that actually suits her, your task then is to truly value her in that role and say that the new role will be a much bigger help to you than the bridesmaid role.


How do I tell my dad I don't want him to walk me down the aisle?

It's a tricky one. We are on speaking terms, but we're not super close. I think he would expect that I'll ask him, but I really don't want to. It's so awkward. Would love some advice.

Christian Weddings Melbourne

Hi Dad,

I'm so glad that you're coming to my wedding. This is a modern wedding, and we will be doing things a bit different to what used happen in the old days. I will be coming down the aisle but by myself. This is quite common these days. I'm coming down the aisle to meet the love of my life as an independent young woman who is making the desicion for herself and not so much as someone who is being "given away". I hope you can unsderstand this and enjoy being a part of this wedding. Times they are a changing!
