CELEBRANT FOR ALL OCCASIONS
I am a passionate Commonwealth Registered Marriage Celebrant, servicing the Greater Geelong area in all types of celebrant services, specialising in marriage. I reside in Manifold Heights, Geelong.
I was born in Geelong and educated here, starting higher school education at West Tech, where I first started public speaking. I then studied Architecture at Deakin University where I further developed these public speaking skills, before moving into employment in the motor trade. With a late career change I followed my passion to complete a Certificate IV in Celebrancy.
Always the first one chosen to speak at friends' weddings and special occasions such as birthdays, it was not surprising that I decided to become a Civil Celebrant! I have been happily married to Fiona, nee Buckley, since 1981, with two beautiful children and two wonderful grandchildren. My honesty and knockabout nature has made me respected by my friends and clients alike - contact me to find out first hand.
I am looking forward to solemnising many marriages, creating wonderful commitment, naming and renewal ceremonies.
"Murray recently officiated at our 30 year wedding anniversary vow renewal, in front of our family and friends. Murray understood exactly what we wanted, keeping the renewal professional, personal and sincere but also light hearted, which was much appreciated. He is a gentle man who will make your ceremony special."

"Relaxed, thorough and had a unique way with words to tell our story. He helped make our day incredible."

"Murray was exactly what we were looking for and more. We had no idea of the processes of how to get married and Murray talked us through everything and was more than happy to answer all our pesky questions.
He also made numerous edits to his prepared introduction, to get it exactly how we wanted, without any fuss. And his patience and calmness helped us hugely during our 43 degree wedding day in January!
Thank you Murray for making our day that extra bit special. "
