We can’t recommend Stephen highly enough! I was unsure how to find a celebrant, but Stephen’s online profile and reviews caught my eye. It was a great choice! From our first contact by email he was always responsive and helpful. We felt very comfortable with him straight away. He has a lovely and kind manner, and will make you feel at ease, and you can feel confident that he will make that extra effort to make your ceremony touching and personal. Stephen made the whole experience much more special and meaningful. Also, he acted as our MC and the whole ceremony and reception ran seamlessly. If I could give more than five stars, I would!
Jane and Stephen
We want to thank you once again for being our wedding celebrant. The night was very important to us – we were not just getting married but also celebrating 40 years together! Stephen, you are a special person and made our night perfect in every way. Your professionalism and style provided the symbolic start to the evening. The day we first met you, both James and I were confident that you would be able to undertake the ceremony for us. Your professionalism, calmness and knowledge ensured we were presented at our best. You led us through the steps in a refined and relaxed manner so we felt at ease at all stages of the ceremony. Stephen, we would not hesitate to recommend you as you helped make it a night to remember and cherish.
James and Philip
What’s a Tailor-Made Wedding?
A Tailor-Made ceremony is a unique Sydney wedding; modern, meaningful and memorable, different for every couple, but always with a relaxed, laid-back and fun vibe. It’s a bespoke ceremony as unique as you, full of fun, joy, meaning and relevance. No fluff, filler or Dad jokes!

But that great script is only half the story. On the day, I deliver an engaging, personable and highly professional presentation that brings everything to life and puts everyone at ease. And by taking an active role to manage and coordinate the practical elements of your wedding ceremony, everything will unfold seamlessly around you. You won’t find me waiting at the front twiddling my thumbs waiting for the wedding to start!
The best approach is to keep everything easy, enjoyable and stress-free. I’ll look after all the legalities, registrations and certificates, plus complete all the forms and paperwork on your behalf.

No – leave al that to me! The easy and secure online booking gives me all the information I need to produce your legal paperwork and start planning your ceremony.
It depends on the complexity of your ceremony but allowing a 30 minute maximum window for your ceremony works well.
Yes you can! I positively encourage it. And I’ll help you with plenty of ideas and examples.
Anywhere and everywhere! They can be small and simple, or big and bold – but they are always personal, memorable and meaningful. I don’t call it a unique Sydney wedding for nothing! These type of ceremonies are often suited to large and formal wedding venues, but equally they’re just as much at home in your home!
Yes! Our short introductory meeting is a very relaxed, no-obligation chat over coffee to discuss your initial plans and thoughts, to explain the process, for you to ask questions and for you to check me out!
Around two months ahead of your wedding date I’ll be in touch to arrange a detailed planning meeting so we can begin the ceremony writing process. I’ll have lots of questions to ask, and I’ll guide you through what I need to know. We’ll focus on what you need to think about and the decisions you need to make.
I’ll use all the information, stories and thoughts from our planning meeting to write you an awesome and unique ceremony. It’s a collaborative process, so I’ll send you the script to make any changes and give final approval to ensure it’s word perfect. You’ll also receive some really helpful advice and tips to make sure you’re fully prepared for the wedding day.
Of course! That’s a big part of my job. If you have booked a Tailor-Made Wedding, you’ll be given access to my Wedding Wiki. It contains loads of tips, advice, pointers and help. That will get you thinking along the right lines and prepare you for when we meet to discuss and plan your ceremony in detail.
I bring my professional PA system with microphones, input for music and line out for wedding videographers. If you’re having recorded music, simply tell me what songs you’d like and I look after all of that for you too!
At least 30 minutes before the ceremony start time. I’ll set up, check on everything, liaise with other suppliers, marshal the guests and make sure I speak to both of you and your wedding parties well before the wedding begins.
A booking fee secures your date and the balance is payable one month before your wedding date.
