Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant


My name is Myly Nguyen, graduated with Grad Diploma of Arts in Civil Ceremonies (Monash University) in 2000, the first Vietnamese-Australian female appointed by the Attorney-General's Department in year 2001 to become a Commonwealth-Registered Marriage Celebrant.

Specialising in spiritual, civil, religious and non-denominational ceremonies, my aim is to create a warm, personal ceremony for each unique couple. I am available to celebrate and commemorate your commitment on marriages at any time, any places, and I am willing to travel outside the metropolitan area.

My interest also include Consciousness Studies and Buddhist Philosophy.

Marriage Equality

Congratulations to all same sex couples getting married!

Marriage means different things to different people; with the common ground being a lifelong, loving commitment and now irrespective of sexuality everyone in Australia can make that commitment. Making marriage available to all couples is important not just for same sex couples but for society as a whole as it legally recognises respect for all individuals regardless of their sexual orientation. It is a very special privilege to have the role of solemnising people marriage.

Non-Australians getting married in Australia

You don't have to be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia to legally marry here. If you are from overseas and want to marry in Australia, as a registered civil marriage celebrant, I will be more than happy to assist you.   


Order of Ceremony

The wedding ceremony is the center of your wedding and the most important part of your wedding day because:

It is when your promises are made.
It is when the legal contract is completed.
It is when you stand before your family and friends to declare your love and your commitment to each other.

A wedding ceremony can be very formal or very relaxed, but its most important attribute is that it should reflect the personality of the couple being married. A well designed wedding ceremony has a clear structure. It flows smoothly, maintains everyone is interest and remains very personal and intimate throughout. The music and poetry should complement the promises and the setting, and the leadership provided by the celebrant should be warm and inclusive.

There is no standard wedding ceremony order, but they generally contain most of these elements:

The Marriage Act
The Asking
Vows and Ring Ceremony
Declaration of Marriage
Signing of the Register  
Presentation of Marriage Certificate
