Mrs. Jones. Marriage Celebrant. Unique Custom Weddings by Nicola Garrard. Melbourne.


Nicola Garrard


Hi! I’m Nicola. I’m originally from London, but I’ve been living in Melbourne since 2004, following on from a three-year stay in Tokyo. What was meant to be a holiday turned into the best move I ever made. I live in Brunswick with my family, and love exploring the city as much as escaping it whenever we can.

I decided to become a marriage celebrant because weddings should be as unique and diverse as the people getting married. I want to offer an alternative for people looking for a celebrant who understands them.

I’m friendly, creative and professional, and enjoy writing ceremonies that keep everyone engaged and entertained from start to finish. And with five years experience under my belt, it takes a lot to phase me.

Whether you’re planning an intimate backyard wedding, an elopement, or a full on wedding extravaganza, I’m here to make it exactly what you want. I’ll be a sounding board for your ideas, and suggest some if you have none.

I'm happy to travel anywhere in Melbourne, regionally and interstate for your wedding day.





When we meet, please bring with you (originals, not copies) of: 

  • Birth certificate, or official extract, or

  • Australian or foreign passport

  • Evidence that a previous marriage had ended (death, divorce or annulment)

  • Proof of ID

If you have any problem getting these documents, please get in touch before we meet, and we can work something out.


The earliest you can get married is one month after submitting a Notice of Intent to Marry. This can be shortened, but only in these cases:

  • employment related or other travel commitments

  • wedding or celebration arrangements, or religious considerations

  • medical reasons

  • legal proceedings, or

  • an error in giving notice.




Proud ally of the LGBTQIA+ community, and thrilled to now be able to marry all humans to the human they love.
