I've been lucky enough to have played a small (but I like to think important) part in wedding ceremonies from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand to Scenic Bright in Melbourne and places in between. I'm a big believer in not making things more complicated than they need to be, so my approach to ceremonies is relaxed, entertaining and professional. Planning your ceremony should be stress free and it’s my job to make sure that happens.
Drawing on a decade of experience as a writer and radio announcer, I take the time to find all the interesting bits and pieces about your relationship and history, which helps me to write really personal marriage ceremonies that are as memorable as they are enjoyable. Getting married should be fun and your ceremony plays a big part. I believe a great story is essential to a wedding ceremony, so I tailor the ceremony to you as a couple, telling a story that reflects your individual personalities and experiences.
I'm based in Kensington and am up for officiating at weddings and commitment ceremonies all over Melbourne, the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and beyond.
Given no one couple is the same as the next, it makes sense that no one wedding ceremony is the same as the next... how boring would that be!
When we get together for a coffee (or a sneaky beer/wine) I'll find out all there is to know about you both as individuals and as a couple, which lets me put together a really original, memorable but most importantly fun ceremony.
On the day, I will set up and provide everything necessary for your ceremony to run smoothly. I take care of all the legal requirements so all you need to worry about is saying "I do".
For couples wishing to hold an intimate wedding or something on a smaller scale, I provide a simple service on a week day or before noon on weekends at a reduced price.
Give me a call. I’ll take you through the process step by step.
We’ll organize a time to meet up in person.
You can throw as many questions at me as you like.
I’ll show you how everything works and throw around some ideas for you to think about.
Go ahead and book me in for your date.
I’ll take care of all the paperwork and legal stuff. I’ll write you a great ceremony that will be talked about for years to come. We’ll run through everything at a rehearsal before the big day. You can reach me anytime by phone or email.
I’ll deliver said great ceremony full of laughs... and possibly a few tears.
You head off to enjoy your honeymoon!
Leaving me to submit all of the boring (but important) legal stuff!
