Mrs. Jones. Marriage Celebrant. Unique Custom Weddings by Nicola Garrard. Melbourne.
Amanda & Lee
Our ceremony was my favourite part of the wedding and I love the song we played for the processional as it really reflected our off-beat personalities. Our ceremony had a very casual playful feeling which is exactly the type of people we are as a couple. Our wonderful celebrant gave us the perfect unique ceremony we wanted, she gave a beautiful romantic reading about the golden record which was so special to have included.
Hayley & Joshua
Saying I DO was just so much fun having Nicola as your celebrant! Josh and I knew right from the beginning that we wanted our celebrant to be just that little bit different, and a lot great, and we found that in Nicola. She managed to create a ceremony that was us to a "T". She provided us with the casual and slightly cheeky ceremony we were after (and obviously her gorgeous accent makes everything sound more magical anyway) and was such an amazing help to us to encourage us to write our own vows and make the day ALL about us, which after all is exactly what it is! We LOVE her, she was a HUGE part of why the day was so perfect! Thank you thank you thank you for being so great!
Paul & Trish
Thanks so much for being ever patient with our lack of wordiness and leave everything to the last second style.
Dani & Jules
Nicola, you were the absolute best. The idea of getting married was daunting until we met you! You made us feel comfortable right from the start and, after meeting us just once, your suggestions for our ceremony were spot on. All of our family and friends loved you and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you as a celebrant. We had the best day and are so glad that you were a part of it!
Rachael & Alen
Nicola was so warm and welcoming. Always ready to listen to our ideas, accepting of our ethics and style. Nicola was always available to answer any questions and amend the ceremony, even a few days before! We are having a second ceremony in Greece and would like to have her run that ceremony too! Thanks so much for making our day a little less of an event, and more about a personal time to share our love with our friends and family. Much love, from your April 'legal lovers', Rachael and Alen.
Michaela & Daryl
Thank you so much for such a beautiful ceremony, I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful and special it was.
Hollie & Alex
“Our ceremony was absolutely perfect: relaxed, fun, sincere, and full of love, just the way we wanted it. We had Nicola of Mrs Jones The Celebrant fame (who I found through Polka Dot Bride actually!) marry us, and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect celebrant. Nicola was the only celebrant we met with, we felt so incredibly comfortable with her from the very first meeting we didn’t see the need to meet with other people. Nicola worked with us every step of the way.
Tiffany & Aaron
I had trouble finding a celebrant that wasn’t over the top or cheese. When I met Nicola, it was instant. She not only understood our simple ceremony but she encouraged us to dig deeper. I’m glad she did because it allowed us to reflect more on how we got to this stage.
Sean & Eloise
Thank you so much for marrying us! You were fantastic, so many of our friends and family commented on how perfect you were and how they wished you lived in Sydney so you could marry them too! Thanks for making the process so seamless and easy.
Katrina & Jason
Nicola wrote and delivered a beautiful, unique ceremony for us that took into consideration our wish to have a simple, non-traditional wedding. Her words truly reflected our personalities and our relationship, making our wedding day incredibly meaningful and intimate. We met a number of times in the lead up, and Nicola made us feel calm, confident and informed about what originally seemed slightly overwhelming for two introverts!
Jessica & Dale
We can't thank you enough for the amazing job you did as our celebrant, We were both so happy that you took the time to get to know us and tailored a ceremony that truly reflected who we are as a couple. We were both so nervous about getting up in front of everyone and you made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Our families and friends were also blown away by the ceremony and how brilliant you were. Thank you for making our day so special and memorable.
Tom & Nerissa
Nicola was amazing as our celebrant. She helped us craft the ceremony that we wanted. She also made the paperwork really easy. Nicola's wonderful to work with and we can't recommend her highly enough.
Jonathan & Kaoru
Just wanted to say thanks from Kaoru and I for the lovely ceremony, for your advice and just for being a great celebrant all around.
Joshua & Jessica
Nicola, thank you for making our ceremony the laid back, personal and memorable experience that we wanted. Your words perfectly captured our thoughts on our relationship and what we want from our marriage. Your professionalism, thoughtfulness and easygoing nature made it an enjoyable experience throughout. Thank you.
Lauren & Warwick
Thank you so much for your help and being such an integral part of our wedding day, you were perfect! Thanks so much for being so flexible and patient with us.
Gemma & Clint
We were after someone with a little bit of spunk for our backyard wedding and as soon as we came across Nicola's website we knew she was the one for us. Awesome in every way possible: helpful, calming, informative – everything was just so easy. Thank you Nicola for making our day even more special than it already was. You will be highly recommended to everyone in the future.
Luke & Chloe
Looking back I couldn’t image our wedding day without Nicola, her warmth, understanding and openness made such a difference. We immediately felt at ease with her and knew that she would craft a ceremony that truly represented us as a couple. The advise she gave was invaluable and we feel so lucky to have someone so wonderful in our memories on one of the most important days of our lives.
Shannon & Sarah
Thank you so much for officiating at our wedding! We knew that you were the perfect Celebrant for us from our first meeting with you. Your ability to offer us the benefit of your experience combined with ideas for putting our own unique stamp on the day were invaluable. On the big day we had all manner of reasons to be nervous, but your calm guidance and professionalism helped to steady us and make it the perfect ceremony that it was.
Jimmy & Dani
Weddings are a day to share, celebrate and embrace love. Our big day was so important to us to share with all of our family and friends, the love and admiration we feel towards each other. Choosing your celebrant is so important for this as their spoken words help to represent your story and journey so far. We couldn’t have imagined picking any other celebrant over Nicola as she had immense qualities that are found few and far between. She was able to capture our soulful connection almost instantaneously. Nicola was helpful through the whole process, sending us documents to help us mold and create both our vows as well as our ceremony. Nicola captured the fun in our relationship and displayed it beautifully through her written words. She is both kind and caring and we felt so special through the whole process. If you were to choose anyone for your wedding celebrant, I would look no further then Nicola as she created a perfect day for us and she will be forever an important part of story and in our hearts.
Brent & Kim
Nicola assessed and understood our relationship from the start, her ability to listen and interpret our needs and wants were on another level altogether. I couldn't recommend her highly enough to anyone who finds this aspect of their wedding as important as we did. Nicola, thank you for giving us a ceremony we can look back and smile on, you are truly gifted.
Cassie & Dave
Simply the easiest decision we made for our special day.
Nicola was amazing during the whole process, made us feel at ease with everything. Nothing better then organizing over a cheeky drink.
We would just like to say think you so so very much; we received nothing but compliments about our beautiful ceremony.
We will forever have such wonderful memories. Thank you
Matt & Rachel
That moment where everything falls into place: the best way to explain our first meeting with Nicola.
Nicola was a total blessing from that moment onwards. A guiding presence, allowing enough space to explore a ceremony to suite the occasion - adding the right amount of fitting commentary around our intentionally sparse vows.
Our friends and families echoed our delight at Nicola's presence and resonating reading.
We could not be happier. Thank you Nicola.
Jarrod & Jayne
Jarrod and I found Mrs Jones via the usual suspect wedding blogs but Nicola stood out; She was a burst of colour amongst a sea of the same.
Immediately upon meeting, we knew Nicola was the right fit for us. She was professional and experienced with a relaxed style, which allowed Jarrod and I feel comfortable with her. Many of our friends noted after the wedding it was the best ceremony they had witnessed, with Nicola including personal touches which made everyone feel part of the journey with Jarrod and myself. We can’t thank Nicola enough for kicking off our marriage.
Kylie & Ben
We had 8 weeks to organise our surprise wedding and one of the most important things to us was having a celebrant that was a little different to the rest. When we found Nicola we knew straight away she was the celebrant for us. She captured who we are as people whilst making our ceremony relaxed, fun and memorable.
We are so lucky to have found someone who understood our desire for a simple, non-traditional yet beautiful wedding. Thank you Nicola!
Jessikah & Ryan
Nicola was absolutely exceptional in every way. She is a genuinely fantastic human being who cannot do enough to ensure that your ceremony is going to be everything that you had hoped and more. She takes so much pride in her work. The number of guests that we had saying how incredible she was is a testament in itself. Many of our family members also said how they wished that they had known about her when they were getting married. She really took the time to get to know us and ensure that our ceremony reflected our personalities, beliefs and lifestyle. We cannot thank her enough for everything that she did! She is perfect and has definitely found her niche for what she is meant to be doing!
Brendon & Anita
We are so grateful to Nicola for making our wedding ceremony so memorable. We were initially a bit daunted by the idea of getting married, but from the moment we first met, Nicola made us feel instantly at ease and took the time to listen and really understand our us and our preferences. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and she made it feel so personal and special. Thank you for giving us our perfect ceremony and something we will look back on with a smile for many years.
Emily & Dan
Even if we had the opportunity to create our perfect celebrant in some sort of magical celebrant-making-machine, we couldn't have conjured up someone as awesome as Nicola. What an absolute gem she was! From the moment she recommend we have our first meeting at a trendy pub, we knew she was going to be the gal to pronounce us hubby and wifey.
Easy going, professional, accommodating (particularly of our crazy elopement ideas and many a stressed-bride email) and just downright cool, I couldn't think of anyone more perfect to have been our celebrant. Mrs. Jones was absolutely fab, and we'll always remember her as being a very special part of our day. Thanks Nicola, you're a rad celebrant, and a very cool human.
Annie & Al
icola was the perfect choice for our wedding celebrant. She made the process straightforward and gave some great suggestions on readings/poems etc. Nicola was the exact blend of intimate, casual specialness that we wanted! She was very thoughtful, considered, and really made the ceremony something wonderful for us, and our guests. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Thanks so much Nicola!
Tom & Lucinda
Nicola truly helped us make our wedding perfect. She listened to us and worked with us to deliver a ceremony that reflected our style and personalities. We had many compliments from our guests about Nicola’s beautiful words and sentiments she delivered. Tom and I were beyond pleased with our special day and Nicola’s work was a large portion of what made our day so special. We cannot thank her enough.
Prudence & Toby
My partner Toby and I are both creative, unique individuals and we wanted a celebrant to reflect this. Luckily Toby found Nicola’s website in his search for Melbourne celebrants. We live in Perth so it was quite a feat organising a wedding interstate. Nicola was fantastic in helping the day run smoothly! The ceremony she wrote summed up our relationship so well and gave all our guests a great in sight into our history leading up to our wedding day. Thanks again Nicola you are an amazing celebrant!
