Micro wedding packages in Queensland cater to all budgets, ranging in price from under $1,000 to over $100,000. The small wedding packages on this list include spectacular destinations at both ends of this price spectrum and offer world-class backdrops and experiences for intimate weddings.

How To Get Married Without A Wedding

Getting married without a wedding is often called a legals-only wedding ceremony in Australia. A legals only wedding is conducted by an authorised marriage celebrant who will organise and submit all the required paperwork to get you legally married - without the bells and whistles of a large wedding.

A legals-only wedding is a quick and easy process which requires around 120 words to be spoken, the presence of two witnesses and lodgement of paperwork to the Births, Deaths & Marriages office in your state. 

The easiest way to get married without a wedding is to find a legals only marriage celebrant in the place you'd like to say "I do". Below, you'll find a list of recommended officiants all around Australia who specialise in non-wedding marriages as part of their services. (Not all celebrants offer this.)

A legals only marriage is a great option for couples not wanting a big wedding, or just needing the legal paperwork without the seated rows of excited onlookers. It's also the ideal option for couples who want their wedding ceremony to be performed by a loved one - who isn't a qualified celebrant. With the ceremony aspect taken care of, the registered celebrant then simply organises your paperwork and makes the marriage official on your big day.

Here are 20 highly recommended marriage celebrants in Australia who will get you legally married without a wedding ceremony.
