Are you seeking a cost effective elopement or micro wedding in the Blue Mountains at a secluded spot? 

Phil, the happyday celebrant can show you whatever lookout or venue you want to match your exact needs.  I ONLY conduct weddings in the Blue Mountains - so consider me your Blue Mountains go to guy.  

  • Personal and intimate experience. Imagine marrying the love of your life in one of the most beautiful, secluded spots in New South Wales! You’ll feel like the only two people on earth when exchanging vows and promising to live the rest of your days together.

He will share in the silences where needed, have a joke on hand when the moment calls for it, and offer words of encouragement and support throughout the entire process. 
  • Breathtaking locations. Having lived in the Blue Mountains for over 37 years, Phil can recommend many stunning sites throughout the region that are perfect for saying “I do!” You may choose an unfenced lookout with striking mountainscapes or opt for a fenced lookout with equally spectactular outlook.  Phil can also suggest some quieter, more secluded areas for those who wish to reconnect with nature and enjoy the fresh mountain air without needing the view.

February 2019

He was amazing! I've recommended him to a couple of people already. From the moment we meant there was just something about him that made us feel really comfortable. He went above and beyond what we wanted, travelled to us all the time, took care of all documents and made the process really easy. We ended up asking him to join us at our reception.

Thank you Kerrie for those kind words. I pride myself on writing a bespoke ceremony with just enough humour, and judging by the reaction of the guests, both at the ceremony and at the reception afterwards, the ceremony was exactly what you wanted. Only made possible by a bride and groom who cooperated in the writing of the ceremony from the ground up. Everything of the best for your future together. Phil T

January 2019

We used Phil as our celebrant and he was amazing. He helped us create our own vows. His honest, reliable and very easy to deal with. He did all he could to ensure that everything ran smoothly on our big day. We highly recommend Phil. Thank you again Phil for everything.

10/5! Fantastic, he was just himself, he wasn't fake or trying to be someone else. He was just genuine and really cared about our special day. Made our ceremony really personal.

Phil was amazing in every way! He was super easy to communicate with and made our day run so smoothly. Our guests loved his manner and he helped us find the perfect lookout for our ceremony.

What does a Celebrant do with NOIM form before/until the wedding?

Blue Mountains Celebrant - Phil Timbrell Happyday Celebrant

The celebrant must keep the NOIM locked in a secure cabinet until the wedding unless it is being worked on.  The only situation where a celebrant releases the NOIM is for a couple to take it to a prescribed authority to apply for a shortening of time.  Then it must be returned to the celebrant.

Non-religious Celebrant in a Chapel

Hi, My Fiancé and I have booked in through the Cooma Parish to use the Thredbo Chapel for our big day (and paid in advance). If we have declined using the catholic priest can we use a non-denominational Civil celebrant, or are we required to use a religious celebrant?

Blue Mountains Celebrant - Phil Timbrell Happyday Celebrant

A non religious marriage celebrant can perform a wedding in a chapel if the church that owns the chapel agrees

  It is  entirely up the owners of the chapel

Celebrants can perform weddings anywhere in Australi if the owner of the property agrees

Hope this helps

Celebrant for a small, intimate, midweek wedding

Hi, We are from NSW and coming on a camping trip up to 1770 in the week beginning the 14th of August. Our close friends and family are coming along too. Looking for a fun enthusiast celebrant. And recommendations of a photographer — for the ceremony and maybe 30 mins after. Vibes: low key, barefoot and not formal. Not sure where to start
