OVERVIEW

David Lang is a young, fresh and energetic marriage celebrant from Sydney who loves to have a laugh (or two!). David takes his duties as a celebrant very seriously but does so while being everyone's best friend. He aims to be a friendly face on your wedding day to help calm your nerves and make sure your ceremony runs smoothly.

If you’re wondering why you recognise David’s face, it’s probably from his multiple appearances on Married At First Sight! A popular celebrant operating across Willoughby, Sydney’s North Shore and Northern Beaches, and throughout the Southern Highlands, David is renowned for his bubbly personality and ability to interact with a crowd.

When couples meet David for the first consultation, they’re struck by how much he loves love! David considers it an honour to be chosen as your celebrant and get the ball rolling for your lives together. He will walk you through the whole process to ensure you completely understand what you need to do and explain the legal side of registering a marriage.

“Dave was with us every step of the way. He was clear with his communication, and ensured we were comfortable with all the processes and paperwork involved. He took an effort to get to know us as a couple, and our guests felt that come through with his personal approach to our wedding. We wanted to have a stress-free wedding, and Dave really helped that vision come to life. He has an easy going attitude and hilarious personality, which only helped enhance our experience leading up to the wedding and of course, on the special day itself. Pick Dave if you want to feel relaxed, calm and confident with the most important elements of your wedding!” Mitch J

In the lead-up to your wedding, David will calm your nerves and make sure all the documentation is in order. He encourages couples to have a rehearsal with all the key players for their wedding to help them envision the event as a whole and let everybody know what they need to do and when. On the day, David will actively engage with your guests, welcoming them to your venue as you and your partner prepare.

His deeply personal (and very humorous) ceremonies are known to tug on the heartstrings, usually resulting in every guest having a tear and a giggle (often simultaneously!). Using personal anecdotes, inside jokes, and a natural trait for storytelling, David will make your wedding ceremony everything you both imagined and more.

-First, email or call me to discuss your wedding, you'll need to let me know the location and date you plan on having your ceremony so I can confirm if I'm available.-Then, we meet in person (when possible) or via Skype if you are interstate/overseas so you can get to know me and I can get to know you both.

-I arrive at the ceremony 1 hour before the start time. This ensures I have enough time to park, find the location, set up my equipment and do a sound check.

If you would like a BDM certificate there are different style options you may like to choose, you may be going straight on a honeymoon, changing addresses or want to track the postage yourself -which make it difficult if I order it for you. Not everyone wants or needs an additional certificate but if you do a copy of the actual marriage certificate is $68 and you will need to order that from Births Deaths and Marriages.

-Generally I only do one wedding per day, quite simply because it allows me to be fully focused on ensuring your wedding ceremony is perfect! If there's torrential rain and the ceremony is delayed by 30 minutes, I won't have to rush off anywhere.-I will only take multiple booking in a day if the locations are close to one another and the ceremony times are spread far apart, ie. a 1pm ceremony and a 6pm ceremony.

-I have never had to cancel a ceremony nor have I ever been late. Once I am committed to your ceremony it is my priority. I am a very healthy young man but if a medical emergency caused me to be unconscious, in hospital, please rest assured I have a contingency plan in place.

Dave was absolutely exceptional as our wedding celebrant, and we wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly personalized and engaging ceremony. From our very first Zoom meeting, it was clear that Dave was the celebrant we were looking for. His vibrant personality, warm sense of humor, and genuine care for our wishes made him stand out. He crafted a tailor-made script woven our personal story by sending us a list of questions which we provided answers. Dave took the time to meet with us in person to walk through the entire ceremony few days before. He made us feel more at ease. On the day of the wedding, despite unexpected strong winds at the lawn, Dave handled everything flawlessly. He not only maintained a joyful atmosphere throughout, but also managed to secure the floral plinth under the strong wind, as he said like “Captain America” Our guests were impressed, commenting on how professional and polished Dave was, while also being as personable and welcoming as a dear friend. He truly made our special day feel even more memorable.

Dave was the absolute best. From the enquiry stage, all the way to the day itself, he was professional, fun, and easy to deal with. All our guests made comments about how great he was as well. We used Dave for both Celebrant and MC services. Remy & I could have not imagined anything better. If you are on the fence about who to pick, dont hesitate further, Dave made the day so special! Thanks again :) Remy & Hugo

If you’re looking for a professional, friendly, reliable and down-right awesome celebrant, look no further than Dave Lang! We married on our private property in a garden-style ceremony, surrounded by our nearest and dearest, and Dave was the perfect piece that tied it all together. We met Dave via zoom several times in the lead up to the wedding. We got along really well, and were assured during all the planning! He made the planning part so easy on our end, too! On our wedding day, it felt like we’d known Dave for years. His calm demeanour and professionalism made us feel right at home. Rain, hail, or shine (yes, Dave even braved the rain for us), Dave’s passion for love and marriage shines through and he will make sure everything runs smoothly. THANKS DAVE!

David Lang was nothing short of amazing as our celebrant and MC for our wedding. He made the entire process easy to understand and completely headache-free. His professionalism and warmth ensured that our ceremony was beautifully heartfelt and smoothly run. David's exceptional MC skills kept the night lively and engaging, making our special day truly unforgettable. We couldn't have asked for a better person to lead our ceremony and celebrate our big night with us. Highly recommended!

Dave is an amazing, passionate and thoughtful celebrant! The way he made us feel comfortable during the entire process helped ensure everything went smoothly and in the way we envisioned our ceremony. He brought to life a heartfelt occasion that inspire both me and my now-husband, and all our guests. For that, we thank him for his warm accomodation, kind professionalism, positive “ray-of-sunshine” energy, and genuine love and care for us.
