OVERVIEW

Situated on the Gold Coast, Ryan Black is a fun, thoughtful celebrant and MC with an eye for detail. A "sucker for a good love story", Ryan enjoys crafting tailored ceremonies reflective of his couple's journey, with each magical ceremony balancing fun and emotion. Organised and hardworking, Ryan is the perfect person to tell your love story, with this wonderful celebrant adept at public speaking.

If you’re on the hunt for a warm, friendly, but professional marriage celebrant to officiate your wedding, you can’t go past Queensland’s Ryan Black. A Gold Coast local, this personable celebrant is exceptional at crafting beautiful wedding ceremonies that are as unique as each of his couples. 

A married man of 20 years, Ryan knows what makes an engaging ceremony: personalisation, confidence, and details, details, details. So first, Ryan will get to know you both over a hot coffee or sneaky wine to discern what makes you a one-of-a-kind couple. Then he’ll craft a fairytale-esque ceremony script that’s both emotional and entertaining - just what you want in a dreamy wedding ceremony.

“Ryan made both my partner and I feel so relaxed and made the whole process so easy. During the ceremony, he made everyone cry with happy tears as well as laugh. We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else standing up there on our wedding day. Ryan was super flexible and accommodating with what we wanted our ceremony to look like.” Madison

What you’ll love about working with Ryan Black for your Tweed Heads or Gold Coast wedding:

  • Ryan’s tailored ceremonies. Ryan knows there’s nothing staler than a copy-paste ceremony, which is why he creates custom ceremonies for each of his couples, with each ceremony combining sweet anecdotes, laughter, and - of course - the necessary legal aspects.
  • Ryan feels like an old friend. Ryan is a fun, laidback celebrant with a heart of gold. Charming and caring, he builds genuine relationships with his couples that last well after the ceremony concludes.
  • He can also act as MC. Ryan is known for his positivity and professionalism, two traits he utilises when acting as master of ceremonies for his couples. A charismatic man, Ryan will have your guests engaged and entertained throughout your reception.

Tell us 3+ things your couples love about working with you:

  • I have a relaxed yet professional approach to my work. I can get along with anyone and therefore act as an extension of my clients' friends and family for their wedding day
  • I make genuine connections with my clients to ensure I am able to tailor a ceremony that is truly congruent to them
  • I have a keen eye for detail and work well with other vendors 
  • I continue to build rapport established at the ceremony to the reception when I am engaged to be the master of ceremonies.
  • I like to stay in contact with my couples after their wedding day (should they wish to, of course) because I feel as though we have experienced something special together 

“Ryan made our wedding day so personal and spoke so eloquently. He was accommodating to all of our requests and made our day feel so special. I would recommend him to anyone!” Tomas

Ryan Black is without a doubt the best celebrant & MC you will find! We were privileged enough to have him officiate and MC our dream wedding and WOW he went above and beyond! Ryan is professional, funny, understanding and wildly talented at what he does. He knows how to read a room, make people feel special and comfortable and honestly blew us away. Ryan thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done for us!

All I can say is that the pleasure was all mine. Firstly, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review. Your positive vibes gave me all of the feels. I greatly appreciate your kind words and wish your little family all the happiness and health it deserves. Big love.

April 2023

We cannot imagine our wedding without having Ryan by our side throughout it all. His preparation for the day started months in advance and he talked us through everything from the moment that we asked him to be our celebrant. His preparation style is unique and fun (no template questionnaires or boring forms!!) and allowed us to tell our story the way that we wanted it to be told. He gave us expert guidance at all times but still let us take control of the ceremony as well, so that it went exactly as we dreamed it would. We had so many of our guests telling us on the night and in the days and weeks after how good our celebrant was! I would not recommend anyone else to officiate your wedding. Thank you again Ryan!

Mr & Mrs Bongers, You guys are absolute legends. Thank you so much for the kind words. It was such a pleasure working with you to create a memorable ceremony and reception. You two were so invested, and transparent with your story, during the writing process that it made my role a breeze on the day. I greatly appreciate your trust in me to not only officiate you ceremony but to MC your reception too. Your family and friends were thoroughly invested in your celebrations and it is a testament to you two and your little family. Congratulations again for what was an awesome day! Big love to you and the family.

Ryan is an incredible celebrant, who’s refreshing authenticity and passion creating a wedding ceremony that is true to the couple is at the forefront of every conversation. His easy going nature is reassuring and every time we met it was like meeting with a dear friend. We personally loved how invested Ryan was in getting to know us as a couple and how to create a ceremony unique to our love story. Ryan made sure our ceremony matched our personalities, peppered with the perfect amount of humour whilst telling our love story in a meaningful and memorable way that had everyone laughing and crying simultaneously. Professional, reliable, creative and caring - Ryan is without a doubt born to be a celebrant and I highly recommend his services. Thank you for making our day so magical, we appreciate you so much! Love Nic & Brett Winterscale xxx

Thank you so much for the love! I had an absolute blast with you guys, and I’m so stoked that I could play a part in your special day. I greatly appreciate your amazing review, and can assure you that the feeling is mutual. The journey of creating a ceremony that is truly congruent to the couple relies heavily on how much the couple are invested in the process. Your willingness to contribute ideas and be transparent in order for me to bring the story to life is greatly appreciated. Your family and friends were so invested in the day, and you deserve all the happiness in the world. Thanks again, big love.

We had the pleasure of having Ryan officiate our wedding. Ryan was pivotal in the successful planning of our wedding, right from the start of the process all the way through to the ceremony itself. Ryan is down to earth, professional, friendly and the perfect person to stand beside you and your spouse-to-be on your wedding day. He made the admin side of things very simple and straightforward, helped calm the nerves ahead of the big day, and executed the ceremony absolutely perfectly. Thank you again Ryan, you helped make our special day unforgettable.

Justin & Sarah, Thank you for the privilege of sharing your special day. You guys were such a joy to be with, and I thoroughly enjoyed capturing your story. Thank you for being so trusting of the process. I wish you both all the happiness and health you deserve. Big love.

October 2023

We were lucky enough to have Ryan as ourcelebrant for our wedding recently and he was exceptional throughout the whole process. From the beginning Ryan was engaging and genuinely wanted to get to know us, about us and our love story. Ryan kept in constant communication with us leading up to the big day and made time to meet with us while we were in QLD (we live in remote wa). He also helped with recommendations of other vendors who were also fabulous! Ryan helped with guiding of timelines, a rehearsal (which was definitely needed!) and coordinating guests on the day. He portrayed our love story to a T and the ceremony was engaging, romantic and upbeat - exactly what we wanted. The feedback we received from our guests was also great, saying they hadn’t been to a ceremony that was like ours - it was fun and interactive!

Mr & Mrs Giltinan… where do I begin? Thank you for trusting me to officiate your special day. You guys pulled off an epic day, and is a testament to all of the hard work and planning you did. Thanks must go to you both for being so trusting, and invested, in the process allowing me to deliver your story in a fashion that you deserved. I can’t thank you enough for the kind words, I really appreciate it. Don’t be strangers, hit me up when you’re back on the Goldy for a visit.

How can I tell my sister her kids aren't invited to our wedding?

Hi there. We don't want to have kids at our wedding, but I also don't want to offend my sister. I adore my nieces but we want a particular vibe at our wedding. Any suggestions?

Ryan Black

This is a great question. Firstly, congratulations on deciding what you want on your special day!

Your wedding day is one of the few times in your life where you get to dictate exactly what you want. If you're wanting a certain vibe, and feel that it will be achieved without children attending, then that is all you need to say. Honesty is key. Tell her that you both want for everyone to be truly present throughout the ceremomy and feel that it can best be achieved without the possible distraction of children. Whether they be hers, or someone else's. 

I am an extremely proud parent, and absolutely love my kids, but trust me when I say that my wife and I love nothing more than going to a wedding kid free. It is an opportunity to let your hair down and have a great time. You may find that your sister will be more than supportive of your decision. 

I hope this helps. Happy planning and I wish you an awesome wedding day!
