“We first met Narelle at the South Coast wedding expo and she immediately stood out among the other celebrants. She was fun, had a great sense of humour and above all came across as genuine. We immediately booked her in for our wedding and she was great throughout the whole process. We gave her free reign on our ceremony, but asked her to keep it light, and entertaining and what she put together was fantastic.  She put together a ceremony which was equal parts entertaining and traditional, and her delivery and personality made a great impression among our guests.” Todd


Narelle is a wonderful relaxed and friendly celebrant. She has a world of experience communicating with people and can relate to people incredibly well.

I excel at relaxed and happy ceremonies, I’ve performed many rituals chosen by my couples and when it comes down to it the day is all about them.

Relaxed and friendly, I will answer all your questions honestly and openly. I am happy to meet several times and be in contact whenever suits you.

I will provide a signing table if it is needed, a high quality PA system and ceremony music. If my couples have a ritual I leave them to supply the items for that.

Yes of course I can supply sample scripts but they are copyrighted and can’t be used if I’m not officiating. I personally write every ceremony to suit the couple.

Where do i start! We loved Narelle from the moment of our interview with her! she's funny, caring humble and just an absolute beautiful person. We had certain requirements that were met ( being Christians) and she was more than happy to add in things and even researched versus from the bible for us! we didn't have an exact spot to marry but had a date, we weren't sure if it was the park or the venue we hired ( the pill factory) Narelle offered her home to us to wed there! we asked for her dogs and chickens to be let loose as we are animal lovers and our guests LOVED it! she was so helpful even with my 10pm texts about random things! she helped in every way possible and was just so down to earth! she is no longer our celebrant but we have the honour of now calling her our friend 10/10 recommend xx

We had narelle as our marriage celebrant and she made the ceremony so much fun! She had our vowels typed out and even helped us with samples of vowels, the best was the vodka part, we both did shots as our first drink at the ceremony and I loved it because it was different !! And no one does that! So it was great we are both so happy with how it all went!! You won’t be disappointed if you have her !!’ Thank you so much again narelle you made the day more special !

Certificate of marriage without the ceremony

Hi, we only need a certificate of marriage without a ceremony. This is for the partner visa application. Do you offer the service? How can we start, and what is the price? Can I have more details? Thank you.

There are certain legal aspects of a wedding which must be adhered to. First you must give 1 months notice to the celebrant who is performing your ceremony.

Yes there has to be a "ceremony" of sorts. You must have 2 witnesses to hear your legal vows. These people do not have to know you but they must be over the age of 18.

Then the celebrant must say who they are, that they are a celebrant authorised by law to marry you, then the monitum is said. This states what the marriage act is.

The vows between you both are the legal vows that ensure you are married and you are aware of what marriage means. 

Then the legal documents can be signed and witnessed. There are 2 marriage certificates to be signed, these are the official ones to go to Births, Deaths and Marriages then you and your witnesses sign the legal Commemorative Certificate that you keep. This wouldn't be suitable as legal proof of marriage you would have to apply for the official one from BDM. Your celebrant can do this and the time frame (in NSW) is between 7-10 days. I'm very happy to chat with you if you need anymore information.

Looking for a Catholic celebrant in Southeast Queensland

Hello, Getting married next September and would love a celebrant who can incorporate Catholic elements into the ceremony.

Have a look on the website from the attorney generals dept. The list religious celebrants. Ag.gov.au, civil celebrants can't be involved in a religious ceremony. 

Madeleine S

I'm looking into booking a celebrant, but I don't understand the difference between ceremony types?

Some provide a "full personalised" ceremony, and others a basic package, what's the biggest difference there? I thought all ceremonies had to be pretty much the same, ie: "Do you ___ take ___ to be your lawfully wedded wife". Please explain how there's such a big difference in price and services? :)

Narelle Murray Marriage Celebrant

I write a ceremony for each couple, no 2 ceremonies are alike. We can spend up to 20 hours writing a ceremony, the costs to be a celebrant are high and most people don't realise that. We don't just turn up for 20 minutes and do the do you and will you bit. all celebrants have a big legal responsibility to ensure your marriage is done according to the laws of this country. Along with the legalities, the personally written ceremony, the PA system we have to use, the presentation of the ceremony and registration of the marriage we are an integral part of your ceremony
