About Stephen Lee

Hello - I'm Stephen Lee!

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. 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!

Being a Sydney Marriage Celebrant is my main focus, so you are my main priority. I spend lots of time on your ceremony and I'm always on hand for you. And because I'm out there every weekend (and often in the week) doing the "I do's", so you're in safe, experienced and professional hands.

Professional presentation

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 bring a fresh, modern and youthful 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 decided to become a Marriage Celebrant Sydney so I could help people make a valuable difference in their lives when it's most needed, using all my skills to create something truly personal and unique for people that lasts a lifetime. Doing so is a hugely rewarding experience.

Humanist celebrant

I am a , and so I do not conduct religious weddings or include religious aspects in my ceremonies. Instead 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.
