Dylan is an exceptional marriage celebrant (and an incredible MC, might we add), and brings his wealth of knowledge, years of experience, and calm, confident demeanor to every ceremony he officiates. With his own PA system, great sense of humour, and ability to connect with guests, Dylan is a fantastic addition to any wedding.

“Dylan was so easy to work with. Everything we dreamed about he brought to life and we always felt comfortable knowing he was by our side. Our guests were raving about him and we couldn’t have hoped for anything better. We really enjoyed the way he worked with us to make everything reflect us and our style, he was even able to predict things we needed on the day that we hadn't anticipated. I would highly recommend Dylan” - Jess & Mark O'Reilly 

 

Standing next to my best friends as they said “I Do” or being selected as their Master of Ceremonies was something that I had the great honor of doing countless times. My natural ability to bring confidence and calm to any situation, my experience running events, and my charismatic and humorous nature on the microphone perfectly suited me to join the ranks as an Authorised Marriage Celebrant in Australia.

As a celebrant, I am super laid back, fun, and energetic. I have a kick-ass job because I genuinely love weddings. I love staring down the aisle as the beautiful bride steps out for her procession, I love looking back at the groom as he wipes away a tear and I love nothing more than saying, “Ladies and Gentlemen, for the very first time, may I introduce to you …..”

 

What you can expect when working with Dylan for your wedding:

 

  • Tailored ceremony. Dylan believes that each wedding ceremony should be unique and personal to the couple, which is why he customises every ceremony. Dylan will listen to your hopes and preferences for the ceremony (over a cup of coffee, or something stronger, perhaps?) and tailor your ceremony to your liking. 
  • Charming, funny personality. If you’re after a celebrant who’s not afraid to have a laugh and will enchant all your guests (even aunt Ruth who doesn’t like anyone!), then Dylan is the right celebrant for you.
  • Experienced celebrant. Your wedding will not be Dylan’s first ceremony. In fact, far from it. Dylan is highly experienced and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to ceremonies. So whether you need help writing your vows, are unsure how to lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage, or are having trouble selecting a reading, Dylan can help.
  • Great public speaker. Dylan is an excellent public speaker, in fact, we’d go so far as to say he is an exceptional speaker. He’s confident, calm, engaging, funny, and oh-so charming. You’ll love having Dylan tell your story or be your MC for the evening.
  • Excellent MC services. That’s right, you can book Dylan for your ceremony and your reception. Dylan is an experienced MC, and is a fantastic host - way better than your uncle who’s had one too many or your friend who’s a wee bit scared of the spotlight. He’ll charm your guests, keep the evening running smoothly, and introduce all your speakers.
  • Management and planning. With a background in European Tour Management and Global Event Planning, you can bet that Dylan is highly organised and exceptionally punctual. You can count on Dylan to be there exactly when you need him. Not to mention, you might also like to book Dylan’s wedding planning services...

 

“With all the uncertainty around COVID-19, Dylan made us feel at ease and excited about the fact we could still get married regardless of what was going on in the world. As a celebrant, he was so professional but also had fun with the ceremony which we loved! If you're a 2020 bride and not able to have the day you’d hoped, I’d highly suggest reaching out to Dylan. He did the perfect little elopement ceremony and it was so worth it. Dylan helped remind us that regardless of the situation, love always wins" – Meg & Luke Hall

 

Here’s what else you need to know about Dylan's Services.

 

  • All-inclusive packages. Dylan offers four flexible and all-inclusive wedding packages for couples to choose from. From a platinum package with the lot to an elopement style bronze package, there’s something for everyone.
  • Commitment ceremonies. Dylan can also officiate commitment ceremonies, so if someone loves Dylan’s work at your wedding, feel free to recommend him.
  • Informal consultation. Understanding that a formal consultation might be a bit overwhelming for some, Dylan offers relaxed, no-strings-attached, informal chats over a nice cup of coffee or zoom call. Here, you can see if Dylan is a good fit for your wedding ceremony and he can answer all your questions.
  • Hopeless romantic. Dylan is a self-confessed hopeless romantic and has a love of weddings - which is why he became a celebrant! He thoroughly enjoys officiating weddings and loves seeing his couples laugh, cry happy tears, and profess their love for one another.

Questions and Answers

How much do my packages cost?

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC

Getting married can cost you as little as $1000, or over $100,000. It just depends on what your priorities are and there is no right or wrong way to do it.

Most celebrants charge between $800 & $1600 to write and deliver a customised wedding ceremony. There are some that charge less, there are some that charge more, but given the celebrant plays the most critical part (besides you of course) in both the ceremony and the legal obligations of marriage, its a service you want to prioritise. Remember im not just a pretty bouquet or centrepiece, I am going to be your most trusted support throughout your entire planning process. 

My pricing varies depending on what package you select and when your wedding is (2021, 2022 or 2023) so if you like what you see so far then get in contact and I will email you with a price list taking into account your package requirements and wedding date :) 

Do I MC?

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC

Hell Yeah I MC and I absolutly love it! The thing i often say to couples is "The celebrant sets the tone for the day and your MC carries it long into the night". For a small fee, I can host your entire day’s festivities from the aisle to the dance floor. 

Choosing an MC is an integral piece of the puzzle when planning your wedding day. More often than not the task falls into the hands of a close friend or relative which is highly stressful and often takes away from their enjoyment of your special day. The MC is tasked with coordinating the entire afternoon and evening’s formalities with the venue, guests and entertainment. 

As an MC, I help plan and coordinate; The Group Photo, Canapes/Cocktail hour, Migration of Guests to the Reception, Housekeeping and Venue Liaising, Bridal Party Entry, Speeches (Inc Speaker Bio’s), Cutting of the Cake, First Dance / Parental Dance, Wedding Games, Bouquet Toss/Garter Toss, Post Wedding Transport Coordination.

Why am I the right Celebrant?

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC

Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime moment and you want it to be perfect. I really love what I do and that shows in the level of service and support I give to my couples. Moreover, I have more than a decade of experience working in events so not only do you get a fun, fresh, youthful and personable celebrant to guide you through the legalities of marriage and legal paperwork, I will be there every step of the way to give you ideas and tips for planning your big day, I will listen to your ideas and integrate them into your wedding ceremony, I will make sure your wedding day is memorable and stress free and above all else I will be there to support you every step of the way. My speciality is being able to customise and tailor ceremonies that will reflect the unique personalities of the couples so let’s get together for a coffee and start planning your big day.  

How far in advance should you book your Celebrant?

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC

After selecting a date and placing a deposit on your venue, the celebrant should be the very first thing you book. 

I am currently taking bookings as far as 3 years into the future with many key dates during peak seasons 2021, 2022 and 2023 already booked out. Contact me ASAP after you select your date and we can lock my celebrancy services in for your date to avoid missing out! 

Note: By law, the latest I can take a booking is one calendar month before your wedding unless you have already signed and lodged a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form. See below for more information regarding “Legal Paperwork”  

What is the process from inquiry to your wedding?

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC

Planning a wedding is stressful right? To help you understand the process of working with me, I have created a simple 10 step process:

1. You check out my EasyWeddings page and personal webite.

2. Hopefully you like me at this point and you make an inquiry. 

3. If I am not available for your date then I can reccomend a few other celebrants to contact. If i am available then we move to Step 4. 

4. I will give you a quick call to get a few little details (date, venue & what you are looking for in a package etc) and then shortly after email you packages and pricing for you to take a look at. 

5. If you still like the idea of including me as your celebrant then we can organise a time to jump on a video call to meet face to face or we can catch up in person over a coffee (my shout). 

6. Your time is valuable so if im the celebrant for you then why not save time and sign the NOIM (legal paperwork) straight away and I can run you through my expert guide to ceremony planning so you can get started. 

7. I will send you an invoice for the deposit ($250) and lock away your date. 

8. We will then meet up in person around 3 months prior to your wedding day to plan your ceremony and play a little "getting to know your love story game" with you and your partner so I can create a ceremony script that is out of this world.  

9. Should you opt to include a rehearsal then we can do that at a date prior to your wedding day (See "Rehearsal" FAQ below for more information). 

10. You turn up on your big day all relaxed because this Dylan Bond Celebrant Guy has got it all covered. You look rediculously good-looking, I conduct a ceremony that leaves you and your guests laughing, crying and celebrating your love story, we sign some more paperwork that the photographer takes pretty pictures of and then you boogie the night away with your family and friends while I formally register your marriage with the registry office. How good does step 10 sound....

We booked Dylan a week out from our wedding after our celebrant had to pull out due to Covid-19 border closures and my new husband and I can both honestly say it was the best decision we made with the entire wedding!! We can not sing Dylan's praises enough and are so grateful that it was Dylan who married us! He made everything so easy and really helped to alleviate any stress we had before and on the day. All of our guests could not stop talking about him (I think a few are going to book him for their own weddings)! He really has a way of putting you at ease, he made our ceremony light-hearted, memorable and so funny whilst also sharing our story so beautifully. We can't recommend Dylan enough.

17 Aug 2021

Dylan is an absolute jackpot as he really does it all! We were specifically looking for a celebrant who would also MC and was delighted to come across Dylan’s profile on Easyweddings. From the beginning, Dylan was very helpful with providing all the resources he had in planning the wedding, and also helping us decide on things when we needed it. He was professional and timely, and most importantly made us feel very comfortable and less stressed with the process. We loved every bit of our day and couldn’t have done it without Dylan!

16 Jul 2021

I never thought anyone could care about our wedding as much as we did, until i sit back now and look at how much effort Dylan put in. Not only did Dylan send us as much information as he could about planning a wedding, he was there every step of the way, he also helped us write custom vows to each other. Dylan was both our celebrant and our MC and i can not recommend him enough for both of these parts! His professionalism coupled with his banter made the day stress free for us and engaging for our guests. He made the role look effortless and the night flowed seamlessly. All of our guests expressed how good he was and we couldn't be happier! Thankyou Dylan, you're a legend!

23 Oct 2021

Dylan provides such a top notch service as a celebrant. He is wonderfully charming and charismatic, and every aspect of the planning and ceremony itself was filled with joy and laughter and love. He truly provides such a unique service, and we are very blessed to have been pointed in his direction.

23 Sep 2021

Dylan was an amazing celebrant in every way possible. We couldn’t be happier with the service he provided and we would recommend him to anyone and everyone we know! He did absolutely everything to ensure that our ceremony ran smoothly from start to finish. We will be eternally grateful for Dylan.

Hi Chrissy. Thanks for your kind words and for including me in your big day. It was an absolute pleasure to work with yourself and Nick and I wish you both all the happiness in the world. Chat soon xx DB

17 Sep 2021

If the name Dylan Bond doesn’t grab you enough, the service he brings certainly will. Dylan made our unique and sometimes silly experience feel totally normal and celebrated. He made the process of conducting meetings and admin very easy and made the questions and endeavours to get to know us feel like we were talking to a friend. Dylan met us where we were, which I’m sure is his magic power that makes him one of the best. His ability to match your emotions, stand in when you need help and pure joy that emulates through his work is nothing short of exceptional. He has a knack for kids and includes them, welcomes them and loves them as his own. Thanks Dylan for making our day easy, special and fun. Please call us, we miss you ☺️

30 Aug 2021

Could not recommend Dylan's services more! He made the whole process easy and fun right from the start and helped to create a funny yet still very pleasant ceremony that all our guests enjoyed. He also then proceeded to help our photographer get everyone in the right place for photos and was just helpful in general. Overall a great guy, with a friendly but professional disposition. 10/10

20 Aug 2021

Dylan was absolutely amazing during this stressful time of the unknowns with lockdowns and restrictions due to covid. Our guests continually tell us how much they enjoyed our ceremony and how much it suited us. Thank you Dylan for everything 😀

2 Jul 2021

We couldn't recommend Dylan more for your wedding! He was so helpful, friendly and easy to get along with. He made the effort to catch up multiple times through the planning part to make sure we were going well and understand what we were hoping for on the day. We threw him a curveball with a few days before the wedding, lockdowns started occurring. Our plans changed 3-4 times within the week. Dylan was so great to us, flexible and with us the whole way. He was able to make our day warm and fun! We had a video link to 'host' all our guests who couldn't make it due to the lockdown. Every single person we have spoken to mentioned what a great job he did and how he presented the ceremony to be a true representation of who we are as a couple. You won't regret hiring Dylan!

13 May 2021

Dylan was the best celebrant and MC for our special day. Everyone thought we had known him for years! He puts so much effort into an original and personal service and helped the reception to flow!

3 Apr 2021

Dylan created a light-hearted atmosphere and we had a really fun wedding because of him! He managed to include our families that joined us through Zoom and that meant a lot to us, and that's why we did not even feel we were getting married during a pandemic. He helped us to have the small, intimate wedding we always dreamed about, he made it so fun but still so meaningful! Thanks Dylan! Nathalia & Enzzio

28 Feb 2021

If we could give more stars, we would. We booked Dylan as our celebrant and MC for our wedding at very short notice after our already booked celebrant pulled out last minute. It could not have worked out better, the other guy cancelling was a blessing in disguise. Dylan made what should have been a major stress, a major breeze. His professionalism and upbeat personality are a perfect mix and really tailors the celebration to the couple. Everyone in attendance could not speak higher him. He's that personal, most of our guests thought we must have known him for years and not just met him a couple of weeks prior to our wedding.

15 Aug 2020

With all the uncertainty around COVID-19, Dylan made us feel at ease and excited about the fact we could still get married regardless of what was going on in the world. As a celebrant he was so professional but also had fun with the ceremony which we loved! If you're a 2020 or 2021 bride and not able to have the day you’d hoped, I’d highly suggest reaching out to Dylan. He did the perfect little elopement ceremony and it was so worth it. Dylan helped remind us that regardless of the situation, love always wins!

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC  

Hi Meg & Luke. I’m so glad we got to celebrate your wedding regardless of what burnt down venues, Covid restrictions or border closures threw our way! I’m even more glad everyone voted that your dog is called Frodo haha 😂 Send my love to Luke and let’s catch up for a coffee soon! DB xx

2 May 2020

Dylan was so easy to work with. Everything we pictured or imagined he brought to life and we always felt comfortable knowing he was by our side. Our guests were raving about him and we couldn’t have hoped for anything better. Absolute legend.

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC  

Hi Matty! You two are a beautiful couple and it really is an honour to ride third wheel to your love story! Send my love to Laura and look forward to catching up soon! X DB

“We had the most amazing experience with Dylan. He created a fun, light-hearted atmosphere that you couldn’t beat if you tried! You won’t be disappointed by choosing him for your big day!”

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC  

Hey Amanda. It was absolutely my pleasure, what an incredible day (and night) that was! You stay safe and let's do it again next year shall we?
