“My husband and I can't thank Steve enough for the amazing job he did!! From the beginning he was friendly and provided heaps of vow and reading samples which made life much easier. On the big day, the section about us was well worded and accurate and we loved hearing our love story from a third party.

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Is there a Registry Office in Canberra where we can get married?

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant

Luckily, there isn't!

That means you can select your own celebrant,  be married in a location of your choice and hbe able to personalise the ceremony content.

What is the first thing we should do once we decide to get married?

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant

The most important thing that all suppliers in the wedding industry will ask is, 'what date is the wedding?'

After you have selected your date, you can then start to approach venues, celebrants, photographers etc.

Is there a waiting period before we can get married?

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant

Yes, you will need to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage form with your celebrant.  On the day that the celebrant receives this form and/or witnesses your signatures, you have to wait for one month before you can get married.

How long are the marriage ceremonies?

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant

Ceremonies vary depending on the inclusions of the ceremony, what style of ceremony you are after and how many readings you may have included in the ceremony.

There is a 'quick' option that takes 5 minutes, a medium option around 11-15 minutes and a more personal option that will take around 20 minutes.

Your heart felt comments have made me blush!!!

11 Apr 2019

Steven's guidance and advice from early on meant that we were confident that we were meeting all timelines and feeling pretty calm with our approach to planning for the ceremony. Taking care of all the background administration was a huge load off our shoulders, and the flexibility of the advice and suggestions Steven provided meant that Katie and I were able to do tailored, ‘blind’, vows that worked brilliantly with each other. Steven worked the information we provided about ourselves perfectly into a succinct but heartfelt ceremony that really established the positive and heartfelt feeling for the rest of the day and evening.

Many thanks Liam, I am so happy that you had the perfect wedding day and that I was able to make a small difference.

3 Apr 2021

Steven was AWESOME! I HIGHLY recommend!!! He was so helpful and taught us everything we needed to know and we went in to this whole wedding thing feeling prepared, all thanks to him. The resources he sent us to prepare our ceremony were really well written and super easy to go through and the ceremony was perfect. Couldn’t recommend more highly.

7 Apr 2019

Easy to deal with and responsive, providing all the useful information we needed along the way. A very personable face to face meeting to get things started, and very flexible with the timing, location and type of (short) service we wanted. A great experience for us all around.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

Loved working with you both and thank you for your amazing feedback

6 Apr 2019

Steve was great and was so helpful. He had a no stress approach which made us feel comfortable on the lead up. We couldn't get in for a rehearsal due to the venue restrictions and he was reassuring that we would be ok. He gave a lot of information to help us prepare and we felt like he guided us so well throughout the entire process.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

It was such an amazing day and thank you for having me as your celebrant

30 Mar 2019

Steven was the perfect celebrant for us - friendly, helpful and relaxed. He made all the preparation so easy and very quick to respond to any questions. He put us at ease and created a fun, relaxed ceremony for our small intimate wedding.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

I loved your intimate wedding and really appreciate your feedback

30 Mar 2019

Michael was fantastic as our photographer. Friendly and fun, he made two very camera shy people at ease and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. And the results are AMAZING! Thank you Michael for making our day so enjoyable and for providing such beautiful photos.

29 Mar 2019

Steve tailored the perfect ceremony for us, he covered everything we needed to know and gave us plenty of options and guidance to help us craft a ceremony that was uniquely ours. His experience as a celebrant and an ex-photographer really shows as he works so well and inclusively with other suppliers and service providers and his cool and calm demeanor under pressure (we had a slight venue change mid-ceremony, thanks to rain) was really appreciated and helped everything just flow and happen with seemingly minimal effort. Having Steve perform our ceremony was like having an old family friend standing up there with us and we can't recommend highly enough.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

Yes the 'slight venue change' was fun! I guess it made the day much more memorable, ha ha! It really was fantastic working with you both and getting to know your family and friends a little more.

1 Dec 2018

Steven was extremely professional and a lot of fun. Steven provided us with all the necessary information and was happy to adapt the ceremony to our needs. Thank you for holding in our surprise.

2 Mar 2018

Steven is excellent. We met him at bridal expo and he is so down to earth. He sent us a questionnaire and he tailored our ceremony into a lovely and funny story.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

Hi Karen, I loved your story and enjoyed putting it all together for you.

16 Feb 2018

Steven was the consummate professional and ensured that our ceremony was a true reflection of us with a minimum of fuss. Managed the legalities and paperwork so much so that was never a concern. He was very entertaining without stealing the show (so to speak). I do not hesitate to recommend him.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

Making the legal side of things as easy as possible is one of the best parts of my job as it takes the stress out of the wedding process. Thank you so much for having me as your celebrant.

19 Jan 2018

I cannot express enough gratitude to Steven for our amazing ceremony. The feedback we got from our guests was that it made them "laugh and cry", "just the right touch of light-heartedness and serious bits, without ever becoming cheesy". They said they were "really engaged, never bored, and were left wanting more!" And the part that really gets me... many of our guests commented that it was the "best ceremony" they ever attended!! Steven was really great to work with, easy going and helpful. He provided plenty of information to help us format the ceremony we wanted. But what really made our ceremony unique was the bits he wrote himself about our relationship- this really brought the laughs and tears to our guests! We have some difficult names in our families and Steven pronounced them all perfectly, which I think deserves recognition. It has been a week since our wedding and people are still commenting about how great the ceremony was.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

Writing your ceremony was very enjoyable and I loved being able to share your story with your family and friends. You two are awesome.

11 Jan 2018

We chose Steven as our celebrant and are very happy we did. Steven was relaxed, knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and very professional. He tailored the ceremony to capture us uniquely as a couple, highly recommend.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

The story is one of the best parts of the ceremony and I loved writing it. Thank you so much for providing me with perfect answers to the questions so I could piece together the engaging story.

2 Nov 2017

Steve provided a light hearted ceremony and we can definitely recommend him.

Steven Murray Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you so much for your kind words Gary, such an amazing day.
