Quick Weddings

A quickie wedding is very similar to a registry office wedding except you can choose your favourite location and pick your own celebrant. Quick weddings as an alternative to registries are more personal and fun. 

These marriage celebrants perform quick & cheap Sydney registry wedding style ceremonies anywhere from the back of a taxi in the CBD to a booth in one of the city's groovy urban cafes. You can even take your no-fuss nuptials to the beach, a quiet park or one of the city's many intimate gardens. Some marriage celebrants offer a registry office in their homes and backyard gardens.

*Note you do not need to book a marriage celebrant if you're getting married at the Chippendale or Parramatta registry offices. You will need to book a marriage celebrant for any other venue that does not include an authorised marriage officiant (such as public parks and commercial premises).
