Sydney Marriage Celebrant
A young, modern, male Celebrant

Now I want to marry you too!
Whoever you are and however you’ve found love, I'm here to help you celebrate in whatever way you wish. I create top-quality ceremonies which are modern, fresh, meaningful, relaxed, fun, stylish, inclusive and full of joy.

We'll find the perfect style to reflect your personalities, the perfect blend of creativity and tradition, and the perfect words to express your feelings.
I'll help with lots of ideas, look after the legals, and ensure it's easy, exciting and stress-free. And it all comes together with a flawless, engaging and entertaining ceremony, presented with warmth, skill and personality.
My ceremonies are non-religious and free of fluff and filler. I constantly strive to be among the very best in the business, as shown by my 5 star reviews.

I was just about to drive away from Kate and Mark’s wedding when two people knocked on my car window….
There are always plenty of tears at a wedding – but can you guess the person who usually cries the most?
Every wedding I write is completely different and a perfect example of that came a few Saturdays ago, when I had two ceremonies that were the polar opposites of each other.
There was only one thing to say when Jake and Vanessa asked me to marry them at an ocean swimming pool – let’s dive in!
Sarita and Daris made sure their styling was amazing, but they paid just as much attention to the substance of their ceremony.
I love watching the wedding videos my couples share with me – like Ben and Samantha’s Balmoral Beach wedding.
What a year 2015 has been! Thank you to all the couples who asked me to be part of their wedding day. Here are just a few of the stars on my tree…..
Everyone thought they were coming to a baby naming ceremony. So you should have seen their faces when they realised what was going on!
Everything about your wedding may be carefully planned but the one thing you can’t control is the weather. So what happens if you get a dismal downpour instead of sunny skies?
In Steven’s vows to Vickie, he promised that he would remember to butter her toast all the way to the edges, just the way she likes it. But was he true to his word the next day?
Kate and Gareth had some very special guests at their wedding – Kate’s whole kindy class, all dressed up in their best clothes to watch their teacher get married!

Cathy had always dreamed of getting married at sunrise by Sydney Harbour, so I got up at 4.30am, wrapped up warm, and made her and Joe official after 11 years together.
When Alex wrote her wedding vows for Dave, she chose three words which summed up how she felt. And they weren’t the three words you’d expect.
Sometimes when I write a wedding I am thrown a cultural challenge – and Alex and Maria threw everything at me!

One thing I find fascinating as a Celebrant is the myriad of tradition, ritual and symbolism surrounding weddings. Everyone is there to declare their love and join in marriage, but everyone does it in a different way.

Weddings where the bride and groom come from different cultures are always great to be involved with because the ceremony becomes a very personal fusion and celebration of their backgrounds and beliefs.
