I'm a full-time Civil Marriage Celebrant, based in Melbourne, Australia. As an event coordinator for over 10 years, I've been responsible for hundreds of weddings. Been a guest at a wedding that featured lobster or abalone? Chances are good we've already met!

But it's not all about me, 

It's about you and your special day

If you want a fun and relaxed ceremony then im your man 

Don't take my word for it check out what my couples have to say below:

"So easy going and easy to talk to - feels like we've known you all our lives! Ridiculously approachable and professional, considering that you're so young. Not at all like the celebrants we've seen at other weddings. The whole process was pleasant and stress-free."

Questions and Answers

Can I Get Married?

Jak Nguyen - 8 Weddings

In Australia any person aged 18 years or older who is not currently married, can get married. A person between 16 and 18 years of age can marry, provided the other party to the marriage is at least 18 years of age. If both people are under 18 they cannot marry. 

The person between 16 and 18 must obtain a court order from a judge or magistrate and written consent from both parents before they marry. 

What's the Process of Getting Married in Australia?

Jak Nguyen - 8 Weddings

Here are the legal requirements of marriage:
1. A completed Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form must be given to me at least one month (and up to 18 months) before the wedding. 
2. You and your partner must provide me with evidence of your date and place of birth, identity and the end of any previous marriages. 
3. You must both sign the 'Declaration of no legal impediment to marriage.' By signing the Declaration, you declare that you believe that you are of marriageable age, and that there's no legal impediment to your marriage. 
4. On your wedding day, I solemnise your marriage. I then ask you, your partner and your 2 witnesses to sign up to 3 marriage certificates. 
5. After your wedding I register the marriage with the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the State/Territory where your marriage took place. 

How Far in Advance Must I Notify You of My Intent to Marry?

Jak Nguyen - 8 Weddings

You must sign a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form at least one month and no more than 18 months before the date on which you wish to be married. 


  • You lodge your NOIM on 11 January. The earliest you can get married is 11 February, the latest you can get married is 11 July the following year 
  • You lodge your NOIM on 31 January. The earliest you can get married is 1 March, the latest you can get married is 31 July the following year 

Can I Get Married Less than One Month After Lodging my Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM)?

Jak Nguyen - 8 Weddings

Only under exceptional circumstances. You must be granted a shortening of the statutory notice period by a prescribed authority such as the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM). Your application will only be considered if you:

  •  Have already lodged a complete and signed NOIM with your celebrant
  • Provide your original signed and completed NOIM and all supporting documents, as sighted by your celebrant
  • Meet one of these exceptional circumstances
  • Complete a notice shortening application form, which includes a statutory declaration clearly stating your reasons
  • Provide documents as evidence to support your application
  • Provide a signed letter from your celebrant, confirming they are willing and available to perform your marriage on your chosen date should the shortening be granted

There's also a non-refundable shortening fee. However, even if you meet all of the above requirements there's no guarantee BDM will grant you the shortening. 

What Does 'Conjugal Status' mean?

Jak Nguyen - 8 Weddings

Conjugal status indicates whether you have been married and if so, how that marriage ended:

  • 'Never validly married' - you have not previously been married or your marriage was annulled. Note: you can't use the term 'single' on your forms as it does not indicate if you have been married previously 
  • 'Divorced' - you have been previously married and divorced
  • 'Widow' (women) or 'Widower' (men) - you have previously been married and your spouse passes away

Review this supplier
11 May 2019

jak was amazing, had a consolation with us and explained everything we needed to know. helped us plan our ceremony and even gave us tips on writing our vows. jak bent over backwards for us even when we last minute decided we wanted to change the ceremony time. could not have asked for a better celebrant.

4 May 2019

Great celebrant. Personable and easy to get along with. Spent 30mins with us weeks before to get to know us and craft it into a great story. Our story was well-crafted and delivered perfectly, even when we threw in the spanner of asking for parts of the ceremony to be fitted to the rise and fall of music. Our friends and family also thought he presented fantastically and would recommend him to anyone. Also sells bubble tea at receptions as a side business. Ask him about it!

15 Nov 2018

Jak is an amazing celebrant. He is young, articulate, professional and articulate. He happens to be a close friend of ours so when we decided the date he was the first person we locked down having seen his work in the past. He made the whole process effortless and even extended his services to MC for us. He definitely was one of our suppliers that the most people at our wedding commented on saying how great he was and that he made it look easy. We can't thank him enough for his professionalism, friendliness, willingness and personal flair - he gave us 1000% on the day! If you are looking for the best celebrant, look no further! He's the one!

Jak was really good. Was able to capture the audience and tell a good story. Made us feel very comfortable during the ceremony when we felt very nervous. He brought his own equipment.

20 Dec 2020

Jak was awesome and very chill kind of guy who doesn’t stress out about the details in front of you and has it all managed whilst staying so cool. It was great to have him both as our Celebrant and MC, discounted combined services and he knew us already and tied everything together so well by the end of it all.

18 May 2019

Jak was really good, and was also bilingual which suited what we wanted. Even when our marriage certificate got lost he helped us to find it, and went out of his way to make sure everything was all set for the day!

24 Apr 2019

Jack was really good. He was wonderful from the beginning and he really took the time to listen to us and he wrote such a lovely story about us. We were so happy!

Amazing celebrant with a down to earth personality and understands how to engage the crowd during the ceremony.

Jak Nguyen - 8 Weddings  

Thank you for your kind words. Congratulations to you both.

22 Sep 2017

Jak is a good marriage celebrant and a great guy! He was very professional and organised with the process. He knew we did not want an over the top wedding ceremony. He had a simple approach and eased our nerves with some light hearted humour on the day. His fees are also very reasonable. Thanks Jak!
