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 honour 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

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How much do my packages cost?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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....

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.

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!

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 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.

9 May 2019

Dylan was our tour guide back in 2017 when we went on trip to the UK with Contiki. We became good friends with Dylan and it was there when Ash and I fell in love despite only meeting on the tour. We married in May 2019 and invited Dylan to say a few words about the 16 days we had together on the Contiki trip. He gave the best speech and it meant so much to us to have him involved. Dylan truly cares about love and loves seeing people who genuinely love each other and want to be with each other. He has great family morals, he is intelligent and incredibly respectful. He is totally committed as a celebrant and will help couples prior, during and after marriage. We can’t recommend him enough!

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC  

Hi Lovebirds. I can't express how honoured I was to see your love story unfold from the moment you met in Scotland right through to the moment you said I Do. I am so fortunate to have met you both in the UK and even more fortunate to have been involved in your wedding ceremony. Stay safe and I look forward to catching up for a coffee next time I am in Sydney. DB x

1 Mar 2014

We couldn’t recommend Dylan highly enough. Right from the very beginning he was there to guide us in making decisions about our special day. From staging our venue to the beautiful speech you made for us you went above and beyond to make our day everything we wanted and more!

Dylan Bond Celebrant MC  

Hey Hollie. A massive thanks to you and Jarad for including me. Such a special dad and it really was my pleasure to be apart of it all. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and I look forward to catching up for a coffee soon! Love to Jarad and the kids. x DB
