I’m Shura Taft; an experienced and unique celebrant and I want to marry you.

Well….not get married TO you but help you marry your partner and true love.

The best thing about your wedding is it can be absolutely anything you want it to be and I want to help by shaping it to your needs. I believe the ceremony of a wedding can be a wonderful way to demonstrate just what makes you unique as a couple and I have many ideas of how to bring that to life.

I’ve spent my adult life in front of a microphone as an MC and host and I’m confident I can bring a sense of fun, love and light to your ceremony. But it’s not about me, it’s about you and what you want.

This is me at my wedding. It was truly the best day of my life and I’d love you to feel the same.

I will travel, dress up, dress down, speak more, speak less and do whatever it takes to make your day special. I am happy to perform everything from a paperwork only wedding to large scale gatherings in far away places.


"From the first meeting over a few drinks, we knew Shura was going to be the perfect celebrant for us! We honestly could not have imagined a more perfect ceremony - it totally set the mood for the night. We love how Shura put together our story and was eager to make the ceremony our own. We had so many compliments from friends and family about how relaxed, funny, heartfelt and honest it was - many of whom thought Shura must have been a close friend or relative. Shura is an absolute professional, so personable and made us feel so relaxed throughout the whole process.
Couldn’t recommend him highly enough! Shu, thank you so much for marrying us. You are truly talented at what you do!"

“Shura played an integral role in helping us deliver our ‘surprise’ wedding celebration, working within a very short time frame to a tricky brief! His warm and friendly personality made us feel at ease throughout the process, resulting in a personal, memorable and heart-felt ceremony. Shura’s professional approach along with his great sense of humour captured ours guests’ attention, bringing about both tears of joy and laughter. We’ve received raving reviews from our guests, dubbing our celebration “the wedding of the year”.
We could not have pulled it off without Shura’s thoughtful and creative input and for that we are very grateful! We would not hesitate to recommend Shura as wedding celebrant to our friends and family looking to create a beautiful and bespoke ceremony.”

“From our very first meeting with Shura, we felt a sense of calmness and comfort knowing that we were in good hands. His experience and expertise helped us plan and set up our reception schedule perfectly.

With his charming and genuine nature he really made us feel comfortable and relaxed when it was otherwise a hectic time. His ability to connect with everyone in the room was amazing, and not only did he conduct our wedding reception smoothly but he did so whilst putting a smile on everyone’s face. Thank you Shura for all your help, we are forever grateful”
Shirin & Anthony
Thank you so much Shura. We loved your friendly approach and easy going manner and your willingness to meet our choice for a short and ‘to-the-point’ ceremony. So many of our family and friends thought you were fabulous!

We couldn't possibly have picked a better person to officiate our wedding. Shura was more than just our celebrant, he kept us calm and collected on our wedding day and even in the weeks leading up. He made sure we had our vows done on time so that his parts of the ceremony flowed perfectly with ours and also coordinated with our planner to create a timeline/outline of the wedding so that everything moved smoothly. He had us run through our vows, separately, and helped give us pointers so that everything would mesh as well as giving us a say in the tone, length and style of our ceremony. This made us feel like we didn't have a "cookie-cutter" ceremony - our day was special and uniquely us.

Above all, the best part of having Shura officiate our wedding was his overall demeanor and personality. He exuded calmness and preparedness, which made both of us feel calm and prepared. When the unexpected happens - which it always does - he is capable of making a lighthearted comment and smoothly move along. (on our day, a gust of wind flipped his sheet of paper over in his binder and he had a witty one liner about the Melbourne weather) He is incredibly outgoing and was great at handling the social aspects of the day. We can't tell you how many guests have told us what a great job he did during the ceremony, but also what a great guy he is in general. We highly recommend Shura for your special day!
