A multi award-winning young, vibrant, funny, and fun Celebrant & MC who LOVES a velvet jacket and a bow tie!
The most important thing you need to know about Craig is that he has the BEST velvet jacket collection you will ever see! One in every colour so he can match your colour theme. He LOVES love and will bring all the feels to your ceremony!
I became an authorised Marriage Celebrant for two reasons because I love love and because it gives me an excuse to constantly top up my velvet jacket, bow tie and pocket square collection.
As a Marriage celebrant, MC & wedding industry professional, I know what couples want in a Marriage Celebrant. I also know what they don’t want too. They want someone who is organized, fun and warmly energetic, without being over the top. Someone who takes the time to get to know the couple personally whilst behaving respectfully and professionally. Someone who cares about the love, fun, and commitment they share and this will reflect in the marriage ceremony of the couple. What they don’t want is someone who arrives late, is generally unorganised, reads off a script, forgets peoples names, tells awkward jokes, and bombs all of your beautiful wedding ceremony photos.
I became a marriage celebrant because I get so much enjoyment from being an integral part of the biggest occasion in the lives of people I get to know well, and now call friends. I’m grateful for each opportunity to work with a couple, and together we will ensure that your ceremony is unique, thoughtful, sincere, moving and fun. Kind of like falling in love all over again! The ceremonies I create will have your family and friends still talking, laughing and crying about it at your Diamond Wedding Anniversary.
I’m here to help you create your dream wedding. Whether it's a fun, personal, heartfelt or more creative style of wedding that you're looking for, I am here to guide you through the process, legal aspects and make planning your special day effortless.
Creating dream weddings is a skill. I draw upon my many years of experience in the corporate world as an MC, and events management roles combined with a passion for public speaking, an eye for detail and a little flair.
I love meeting couples and unearthing your shared stories, heartfelt moments and your love for one another.
Throughout the preparations and on your wedding day, I bring a friendly mix of experience, warmth and life to make your day memorable for you and your guests.
I look forward to getting to know you
I’m Craig Batchelor. I’m a young business owner with a lust for life. I have a great love for dogs, all types of sport, the ocean and outdoors. I also love love. How good is this thing that makes you talk in a dorky voice saying things you swore you’d never say. I’m pretty passionate about how much I love love which is why I became a celebrant. Your story – and your love – is like none that have come before and so your wedding day should beam and scream you, which I would love to create.
