Melbourne Civil Marriage Celebrant
Joan Audino

Making your wedding ceremony dreams come alive.

So you are about to plan your dream wedding. Something you have visualised all your life. As a Melbourne Marriage Celebrant, I also hold a vision of all the possibilities and work tirelessly at achieving this for my clients.
As one of Victoria’s Top 10 award winning Civil Marriage Celebrants, I have built my reputation with clients by exploring many creative possibilities and by going the ‘extra mile’ in my involvement in planning your ceremony.
As a highly experienced Melbourne Marriage Celebrant I can help take the stress out of planning the perfect ceremony. I design uniquely different and relaxed ceremonies that ‘tell your love story’ in a personalised way. I also design Vow Renewals and Baby Namings.
I am an avid supporter of Same Sex Marriages and experienced in Visa marriages


I am a full time authorised Civil Celebrant who strives to create ceremonies that are refreshingly different. I work with couples to design ceremonies that are engaging, fun, relaxed and memorable. No two ceremonies are the same. I marry couples of all nationalities throughout Melbourne and country areas.



To ensure that your planning runs smoothly I have compiled a list of information and requirements you need to meet in order to be legally allowed to marry in Australia.

Other Ceremonies

I also design fabulous Vow Renewals and Baby Namings. All very different, personalised and with an added touch of creativity.

We had the great pleasure of Joan officiating at our wedding in our city apartment last October. We met by chance although, I believe there is no such thing, and we are now friends! Paul and I could not have been happier that day and Joan was a part of what made it so perfect.

Of course she and hubby stayed to enjoy our amazing food and wine. Joan has mine and Paul’s full recommendation! Thank you Joan

Joan was perfect during our wedding day. She not only made our wedding exactly as I wanted it but also helped us with part of the organization and logistics and all because she wanted to!

I would like to add that all my guests were so pleased with the way that the ceremony was performed and they congratulated me for the perfect celebrant that we had. Thanks Joan! from Ingrid, Eulise and Denzel!

Joan was an absolute angel leading up to, and on the day of our wedding! Coming from QLD and combining a wedding ceremony with our first Melbourne Cup experience was rather overwhelming, but Joan went above and beyond to assist us and cater to our needs! I recommend highly, Joan to any couple looking for a Celebrant who is professional, positive and caring!!!

Thankyou Joan for making our wedding a memorable and fun experience!!!

Dear Joan, I thank you a million times, for being a part of our special day! We both appreciate the time and effort that you were kind enough to invest into us, with events leading up to today’s ceremony.

Sincerely from the bottom of our hearts Joan, I thank you and our entertaining witnesses for making our special day happen, sharing today with us and being such a lovely, gorgeous and beautiful Celebrant and host! With humble thanks and the warmest regards.

Joan is every bit the professional and her expertise is evident from the onset of creating your special moment. In saying that, from the very first email, I felt like I'd made a true friend, who was there to help me make our family moment tangible and memorable.

She's creative, confident and capable and has a warmth that can only enrich the whole experience. We can never speak highly enough of her and the joy she helped us cement- there's no hesitation in recommending Joan and her services to anyone, hence at 50 years of age, why I felt compelled to write my first ever review on any business on a personal level.

My husband and I loved working with Joan who provided a thoughtful, creative and well-crafted ceremony. Joan took the time to get to know us and always made us feel cool calm and collected. From the very first time we met Joan, we knew she was the celebrant for us.

She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we were so grateful to have had Joan officiate such an important part of our day. Our ceremony was simply beautiful and we can't thank Joan enough. We highly recommend Joan!

Frank & JoyceFrank & JoyceMarried in Greensborough

Thank you Joan, for all your great suggestions and very personal touches. I had absolutely no idea what to do or where to start and was amazed how well it all turned out. All I had to do was to provide a rough guide on what I wanted and you were able to guide us and filled in all the blanks.

We appreciated your generosity in offering your home and the fantastic suggestions down to where to go for contacts and other requirements. I could not have asked for more! Thank you once again.

Joan was passionate and very organised. Prior to the wedding we didn't have to worry about a thing re: the celebrant as Joan had everything in hand. 

On the day the ceremony all went so smoothly with the addition of some subtle humour, which was also great. I would recommend Joan to anyone - she made our day very special.

Jacqui & AronJacqui & AronThe Baths, Sorrento Beach - 12th September

Our wedding was so amazing on Saturday and a huge part of making it perfect was Joan. My husband Aron and I couldn't have imagined anyone else marrying us. Joan made us both feel so relaxed on our big day and made our ceremony full of love and laughter. She was such a pleasure to work with in the lead up to the wedding and nothing was ever too much trouble. We always felt so welcomed by her and her husband when we would meet her to organise our ceremony. Aron and I will definitely stay in touch with Joan for years to come
