“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
