Based in Sydney, Michael Janz is a passionate, personable, and highly professional marriage celebrant who prides himself on creating beautiful wedding ceremonies that are unique to every couple.

If you already have specific vows in mind, Michael will ensure they meet the obligations of the marriage celebrant under the Marriage Act.

 

"Michael was absolutely amazing, we couldn’t have asked for a kinder, and more caring person to have conducted our wedding ceremony. He made our journey stress free and handled all the paperwork. Our ceremony was perfect and we could not have asked for anything better. Nothing but positive reviews from us and our guests. We would recommend Michael in a heartbeat!" - Carla W.

FAQ

The best way is for you and you partner to meet a prospective Celebrant. I offer a no obligation meeting to enable us to get to know each other so you can make sure I am the right one for you. I am pleased to travel to you.

At our first meeting I provide a comprehensive "Wedding Kit" that includes a set of Ceremony options. I also try to match you with three actual ceremonies I have conducted to help guide you in what will work for you.

A few minutes isn't an issue. However, many venues have a number of weddings on the day and running late is likely to cause pressure to complete the ceremony by its scheduled completion.

It's advisable for the groom and his party to arrive thirty minutes prior to the ceremony start and have one of his party as an appointed contact to the bridal party so any unforeseen challenges can be  easily communicated.

Once you are married there is no need to apply to change your name— this is covered by your marriage certificate. You will find many agencies now days want more than the evidence provided in the wedding certificate the Celebrant provides on your wedding day. It is necessary to apply for a standard Marriage Certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages in your State. I provide assistance for couples in Qld to apply for the Certificate  prior to the wedding day, I verify your identy and submit all the paperwork after the wedding by Express Post.

There is no "correct" side for the bride and groom to stand. It is generally the case that the bride stands to the left of the groom. Interestingly this tradition  stems from the days of "marriage by capture", when the groom needed to leave his right hand, which he used to hold his sword, free in the event that he should need to defend his bride from other suitors who may try to whisk her off at the last minute.

Regardless of the side the couple stand, it a great idea for your parents to sit on the opposite side you you so they can see your face and enjoy the occasion fully.

I believe strongly that all couples deserve the right to formalise their love through a legal union such as marriage.  I consider it a great privilege to help couples celebrate their love.

I've had the privilege of personally enjoying forty years of marriage and one's gender should not  be a barrier to this right.

Michael has been the perfect celebrant for us. From when I first found Michael's website and videos I saw he could bring a professionalism and warmth to our wedding which really set the tone for our ceremony. Michael was very happy to work with us on a unique combined Sri Lankan-secular Australian ceremony, which involved working with a Sri Lankan Buddhist MC, intertwining elements from both cultures. In our first phone conversation and our first meeting Michael really understood what we were looking for, and became a reliable friend to us. He then worked with us on several iterations of our ceremony script, and was happy to meet with our Sri Lankan celebrant to discuss the plan for the day. We got a lot of positive feedback on the ceremony and Michael's delivery. My wife and I would highly recommend Michael!!

Do we need a marriage celebrant?

Can we exchange vows on our wedding day , and just get registered at the registry office on separate day- and therefore not require a celebrant? And if so- is this more cost effective? Thank you

Michael Janz Celebrant

Hi BessieLoo To be legally married in Australia you must fulfil the legal requirements with one of the  4 types of authorised marriage celebrants:

Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrants

Commonwealth-registered religious marriage celebrants

ministers of religion, who are registered with the state and territory registries of births, deaths and marriages

state and territory officers

The vast majority of marriages are conducted by Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrants. Many celebrants conduct cost effective "legal only weddings". Going through this pathway gives you more choice than going through a State "registry office". As a fulltime celebrant, I conduct such weddings at the date and time of the couple's choosing usually in my home office or the couple's home. I am a Sydney based Celebrant. This link https://www.michaeljanzcelebrant.com.au/weddings/ gives you an indication of the range of prices I charge for different weddings.

All the very best Cheers Michael

Can we write our own ring element into our wedding ceremony?

Wondering if the ring part of our ceremony can be personalised or if it has to be what everyone else has?

Michael Janz Celebrant

The wonderful thing is apart from the 5 mandatory sentences, all other aspects of the wedding ceremony can be what you choose or write. Your Celebrant should be able to help and advise 

All the best for a wonderful, unique wedding. Cheers Michael 

who are the witnesses if you elope?

Michael Janz Celebrant

It is a legal requirement that there are two witnesses over the age of 18 and  they can understand what is said in the ceremony and can read the documents they are witnessing .

If you wish to have any elopoment without you providing the witnesses, it is best to discuss this with your celebrant who may be able to assist.

All the very best
