About Stephen Lee Celebrancy
Celebrant and Owner
I love hearing and sharing people's stories. It's been my professional living for over 20 years. With a background in journalism, I'm able to share and celebrate your story in a personal and engaging way.
Over the years I've been privileged to meet all kinds of people, from all walks of life, in all kinds of circumstances. I know how to put people at ease, establish an instant rapport and build a relaxed and trusting relationship. I have a passion and talent for writing, able to craft exactly the right words in the style of your choosing to express exactly what you want to say.
Being a Sydney Marriage Celebrant is my main focus, so I spend lots of time on your ceremony and I'm always on hand for you. And because I'm out there doing the "I do's", so you're in safe, experienced and professional hands.
As part of my broadcasting career, I spent more than 10 years as a TV news presenter, so I am a warm and engaging public speaker, able to cope confidently and smoothly with all aspects of your ceremony, expected or unexpected. That experience shows, and it's something wedding guests often comment on afterwards.
I've interviewed everyone from Prime Ministers to pop stars and Hollywood A-listers in my time at the BBC and ITV in the UK, and here in Australia at Channel 10, Sky News, Reuters and SBS. Producing the likes of Ron Wilson and Lee Lin Chin live on-air means you're in good company!
I bring a fresh and modern approach, hold the Certificate IV in Celebrancy (CHC42608) required for all civil wedding celebrants, attend regular training sessions, and have also helped to train other celebrants. I am registered with the Australian Government. You can check my listing on the Attorney-General's website.
I am a non-religious Humanist Celebrant, and my focus is on marking the big events of our lives with honesty, warmth and affection, using words and music that are personal and directly appropriate to the lives of the people involved.
Andrew is the ultra-organised office manager who runs a very tight ship and keeps everything running super-smoothly.
You may hear from him when it comes to diary dates, paperwork and financials. I'm all about the words; Andrew loves a good spreadsheet!
He's a social media and website expert. And if something's on his to-do list, it gets done!
