Brisbane Marriage Celebrant

Married By Elva Elva Nicolson

Meet Elva

I am so excited for you!
Hello, my name is Elva! I am a very warm, and professional Registered Authorised Marriage Celebrant.

I would like nothing more to officiate your wedding because I care and this is what I do. I create ceremonies for elopements, weddings, same sex, baby naming’s, commitments, vow renewals.

I adore roses, butterflies, yoga, walking, rebounding, public speaking with Forum Communicators, gardening, and a cappuccino and of course a slice of yummy cake with friends.

I love growing roses, fruit, vegetables and love, love seeing the butterflies in my garden.

I am married to an amazing man and have two very handsome sons who now are on their own journey of life.

When you come to my very cosy little office | ceremony room, I meet you at the white gate with a warm welcome and a smile. In my office as we overlook the garden through sheer curtains we can sip on a beverage. And weave through the legal paperwork, and finally the exciting part the creation of your beautiful, intimate and personal ceremony on your incredibly special day.

I love, love what I do and can’t wait to marry you. So be Marriedbyelva!
