Hello.

With 9000 celebrants in Australia, how do you choose the right one for you? Well, good news, this is a great place to start. Simply get in touch (to check availability) and I will then happily organise a free, one-hour meeting to discuss your plans and so you can make sure we’ve got the right ‘connection’. I’m based in Lane Cove, Sydney but travel to wherever the wedding will be held.

Why choose me?

Having performed more weddings than I can remember, I have definitely learned a thing or too along the way. I always readily share this knowledge with my couples in order to help make their day unique, effective and special. Here's four other reasons for choosing me though.

I know my stuff

Each year I attend seminars and complete many hours of professional development to maintain my expertise.

Presentation skills

I enjoy public speaking, understand stage presence and how to make your ceremony engaging.

It’s not a job for me

I do it because I really love marrying people. Words like ‘formulaic’ and ‘cookie-cutter’ just don’t apply to me.

Stress free

I take care of everything at the ceremony, meaning all you have to do is to turn up, relax and enjoy yourself.

03

Recent marriages.

I remember all my wedding couples and have enjoyed every ceremony. I've performed. Here are a few recent memorable events.

My simple 4 step process.

I realise that you may have never done this before, so I will be there every step of the way to assist you with your ceremony. The journey can essentially be broken down into four simple steps:
1

FIRST MEETING

Apart from wanting someone with a happy and vibrant personality, you’ll also want a celebrant who is professional, and punctual. I am all these things and so much more.

2

SECOND MEETING

This is when we will sign all the paperwork. I also source more information from you that will allow me to better connect, and construct a beautiful story about your love journey for the ceremony.

3

REHEARSAL

Here I share my vast experience with you and all the others with a job to do. This ensures everyone is totally comfortable, relaxed and ready to enjoy your special day.

4

SHOWTIME!

I’m not only the presenter but also the producer. I invest all my energy into making this event as special as it can possibly be. However, you are both the stars of the show – something I never forget.

05

Testimonials.

I could tell you how well my ceremonies have gone but I'd rather you heard it from a few of my clients.
“Stephen is quite simply awesome! He cares, he’s competent, he’s witty – George and I really could not have wished for more from our ceremony. We had so many compliments that it was the best marriage ceremony ever!.”

Pricing schedule.

Try not to be driven by price as celebrants are not created equal. I have simplified my pricing so you can be sure you are getting a quality celebrant for what is the average price of a celebrant in NSW. Unless something dramatic changes, then the prices shown below are the maximum you will pay. Should COVID affect your plans, there is no cost to postpone to another date.

Funerals require complete love and understanding

Hello.

I’m going to say straight up, I completely know how you are feeling right now. I lost my son in 2016. So no matter what your relationship is with your deceased loved one, I feel totally qualified to make this bold claim. A funeral – or ‘a celebration of their life’ as I prefer to call it – does not have to be sad or morbid. Respectful yes, but it’s important to be aware we are not just saying farewell, but celebrating the life lost and the beautiful person they were. This is the type of service that I provide. I take the time to get to know you and learn about their life. I then create a ceremony that is both dignified and truly representative of who they were. I’d love to hear from you soon so we can talk more, so please, don’t hesitate to get in touch below.

Funerals.

The services I provide can be as much or as little as required. My focus is on you and your family and what you would like.

Love and understanding

Dealing with the loss of someone is always really difficult. The last thing you need right now is any pressure. I apply love and understanding to everything I do for you to sensitively guide you through this difficult process.

Genuine empathy

I genuinely understand how you might be feeling having lost my own son five years ago. Every loss of a loved one is hard but the loss of a child is perhaps the hardest loss of all.

Professional presentation

I like to try to get to know the person whose life we will be celebrating. It is important to me to speak from a point of qualification rather than anonymity.

Quality designed service sheets

Having been a graphic designer all my working life, it annoys me when I see poorly designed service booklets. I, therefore, offer this service as a cost-effective add-on.

Professional slideshow

As a professional image manipulator, I don't just accept and add photos to the slideshow. I fix many typical problems photos often have, like dark shadows, crooked horizons and poor composition.

Fixed priced options

My pricing schedule is simple to understand and generally all-inclusive. Add-ons too if required are fixed price options.
