Each couple has their own unique story to tell and I believe every ceremony should be just as unique. Let me help tell your love story!

Hi, I’m Nikhil. That's pronounced like 'Shaquille O'Neal' with an 'N'. People sometimes call me Shaq but that's way too fly of a nickname for me.

One day many years ago I realised that I was really happy when I was speaking, and was at my happiest when I spoke about something that mattered. 

Today I can say that it’s love and passion that drives me in my pursuit of being the best Celebrant. I’ve always loved speaking publicly and I finally get to channel it into something that makes a meaningful impact in couples’ lives. 

My full package includes:

  • Personalised and custom-drafted wedding ceremony
  • Unlimited support via phone, email, text messaging, snail mail, homing pigeons, and smoke signals
  • Assistance with all wedding-related paperwork and lodgement
  • Use of high-quality Bose S1 Pro PA system and professional-quality Sennheiser microphones for the ceremony
  • Advice on wedding-day run sheets
  • My best attempt to appear handsome for your Instagram 

So get in touch now and make my day!

What does your package include?

Nikhil Shah

My package includes:

  • initial meeting for Notice of Intended Marriage lodgement 
  • in person meeting to discuss ceremony
  • custom wedding ceremony drafted to your needs 
  • performance of the wedding ceremony
  • use of my audio equipment for the ceremony
  • post wedding lodging of documents
  • travel to and from venue (up to one hour each way from Melbourne, reasonable charge above that)

Can we write our own vows?

Nikhil Shah

Definitely! The best part of having a celebrant is you can tailor your ceremony exactly to what you want. As long as a few legally-required words are included, you can say anything else you'd like. 

I have a fun Google questionnaire that's full of prompts which can help us capture your favourite memories, stories, and things you love about each other to include in the ceremony. We can keep any personalised vows separate so you have a little surprise for each other on the day!

Most couples are leaning towards 'Declarations of Love' vs. custom vows; you can do either, both, or neither!

How many weddings do you do in a day?

Nikhil Shah

I only perform one ceremony per day. The day of a wedding is as important to me as it is to you or your guests. Would you attend two weddings in one day?

Limiting dates to one booking allows me to give you my complete focus and attention; you will have the entirety of my energy instead of me keeping some in reserve for someone else's event.

Do you use a PA system?

Nikhil Shah

Absolutely! I pride myself on being one of the best celebrants and my equipment has to be up to the task. 

I use a high-quality Bose S1 Pro speaker coupled with German-engineered Sennheiser microphones. The entire system is professional grade and completely wireless. They are in line with the latest Australian digital frequency requirements ensuring no interference from TV signals. 

I can organise and play any music you like via Bluetooth during the ceremony as well--just share your favourite Spotify playlist!

What documents do you need?

Nikhil Shah

Nothing! At least inititally. 

The process begins with a Google form I send you which will help populate the Notice of Intended Marriage. 

If you are getting married for the first time and are over 18, generally I would only need to sight your driver's licence, passport, or birth certificate + photo ID to verify your identity. 

Depending on your circumstances, I may also need to sight originals of divorce certicates, death certificates, and other documents. But I promise whatever documents are needed, I'll make the whole process easy and fun.

We highly recommend Nikhil! He guided us through the whole process, from paperwork to the personalised vows and ceremony. I think everyone I spoke to at the wedding (and since then) mentioned how unique our ceremony was to us and that's because of the detail Nikhil went to in finding out about our story and various quirks. It also helped that he was always on hand if we had any questions and he took a lot of initiative in organising meetings and rehearsals. We're both quite introverted and tend to stress a bit, so Nikhil's attention to detail and down to earth personality really put us at ease and gave us confidence that it would all go to plan.. which it did! Thanks very much Nikhil :)

I couldn't recommend Nikhil enough! He was so easy to talk to and earned our trust instantly. He kept both of us feeling calm and relaxed throughout the whole process and was always available for any questions at any time. Nikhil is highly professional and made our day so special. Thank you!

Thank you so much Nikhil for our beautiful and amazing ceremony. You really helped to make it personal and highlighted our love for each other perfectly. Everyone has commented on how amazing you were as our celebrant, you helped to make our ceremony so memorable and special!!
