Fun...Fresh...& Personal. Together we will build your ceremony to reflect your individual personalities, giving you and your guests a unique experience, and fun lasting memories.


Why settle for a stock-standard cookie-cutter ceremony when you can have FUN right from the start of your ceremony?!

Don't wait for the reception for the "party" to start, let's start it together so that you enjoy every part of the day. Your ceremony shouldn't be the part you and your guests endure, it should mark the very beginning of your celebration! Let me help you make that happen.

No matter what style of ceremony you choose to have – small and intimate or breathtakingly elaborate, I will work with you to plan “Your Wedding – Your Way”.

Organising your wedding can be stressful, I completely understand this, so from the legal paperwork through to the final presentation of your Marriage Certificate, I will streamline the ceremony arrangements with you so that you really can Breathe Easy.

As a Civil Marriage Celebrant, I can incorporate any elements of traditional, non-traditional, fun, humorous or special requests you would like to include in your ceremony, making your wedding 100% personalised to you. Whether you want include family, children, friends or pets in your service, or add a ritual such as a hand-fasting, candle or sand ceremony, I will make it happen for you. Alternatively, why not start your own family tradition or ritual?

Weekday, Elopement & Budget Wedding options available.
 
Feel free to call me for an obligation free chat, and I wish you all the very best in planning for your special day.

Questions and Answers

When should I book my celebrant?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

 As soon as possible really, or at least as soon as you know your date and venue. Good celebrants are booked well in advance, just like good photographers, videographers and venues, so you don’t want to miss out!  Don’t forget your Notice of Intended Marriage either which needs to be lodged with your celebrant no later than 1month before your wedding - it’s easy to overlook when you’re dealing with the excitement of venues, dresses, rings etc.

Is a wedding rehearsal necessary?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

It’s not completely necessary, but I recommend it, especially if you have 2 or more bridesmaids and flower girls or pageboys.  The main purpose of the rehearsal is to go through the choreography of the day - where everyone stands, practicing the entrance to your music, the spacing between bridesmaids, the traditional “hand-over” of the bride (I really don’t like calling it “giving away”), and the exit.    I normally do my rehearsals in the week leading up to the ceremony so that it’s all fresh in everyones memories, but if you can’t squeeze one it, it’s not the end of the world, I talk you through it all on the day.  

Can we write our own vows?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

Of course!!! They’re your vows, so make them full of your personality, your quirks and humour, and say what is truly important to you.    If you’re nervous about writing your own vows, don’t stress, I can help out with writing some for you or at the very least give you tips and tricks.

Do you travel?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

Absolutely. Just know that for greater distances (2 or more hours drive) I will ask for a travel fee and/or accommodation for the night before or after the ceremony (depending on your ceremony time).

Will you look after all the legal documents?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

Most definitely. I look after everything from the lodgement of your Notice Of Intended Marriage through to the final registration of your marriage! I even register your marriage on the same day as your wedding!    If you need your Official Certificate of Marriage from Births Deaths and Marriages, I can put through the application for it on your behalf at the same time as registering your marriage.

Toni is very professional, warm and friendly. She explained everything for us in detail which made our lives very simple and easy. She was very engaging with the crowd and made everyone laugh. The way she spoke and presented our story made it seem like she's known us for years and that really helped set the scene for our beautiful ceremony. We highly recommend Toni to everyone as we know she will do an amazing job for everyone's wedding! Thank you so much Toni!!!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Oh my goodness... so many laughs and so much fun at your wedding. I'm glad you and your guests enjoyed it, because I certainly did!! Thank you for your lovely review xxx

Toni was sensational. We had one of the wettest days in Sydney and our "wet weather plan" wasn't such a good plan. Toni moved mountains (literally last minute) to ensure our day was as smooth as possible. She made our ceremony so fun, meaningful, special and wonderful that we didn't even realise the flash floods and last minute change of venue. We have received nothing but positive feedback on Toni with family and friends saying "Toni was sensational", "Who was that celebrant, she was one of the best I've seen..." and "Where did you find Toni, she was so good!" Feeling well and truly blessed, that despite all of out other plans turning chaotic, we had the calm in Toni. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

Hi Mikala... what a ride!!!!! Wettest day in Sydney in over 11 months, wet weather plan b that was anything BUT dry, and a last minute scramble! With everything we went through, I'm so happy that I had the honour of being the person to help you and your beautiful family through it all. I truly feel like part of your family now xxx

Toni was our BEST wedding vendor! We met through a close friend's wedding and she blew us away. We knew we had to have her marry us. Her persona and professionalism carried our ceremony from the very beginning, making sure every thought and process went smooth all the while making it stress free, fun, and most importantly such a VIBE. She holds herself to a high standard however she is so bubbly! Everyone loved her, we even had one of our guests mention she wants Toni to be her celebrant. Toni has a certain flair and finesse which is unmatched. We knew we needed someone who could engage with the audience, the bridal party & us as as couple and Toni ticked all the boxes. Her experience definitely shows all the while making sure the focus was on us as a couple. Toni we have nothing but love for you!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Whoa, the wind on the day was next level!! But it was you walking in that blew us all away... stunning! Thank you for your lovely review. Your entire crew were absolutely phenomenal! I look forward to hopefully seeing you at another wedding in the future xxx

Carlin and myself wish to thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect! Toni you were fabulous from calming our nerves down to personalising our ceremony.

Hi Ashleigh! Your ceremony was so lovely...loved the butterflies! Thank you for the review

14 May 2022

Toni is amazing at her job. Not only is she professional, but also super personal. We had so many of our family and friends come up to us after our ceremony and say that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended. We wanted our ceremony to be very personalised to us as a couple and have elements of tradition. Toni incorporated everything we wanted and created a ceremony that just flowed so seamlessly. I truely can not recommend Toni enough.

8 May 2022

Just WOW!! Toni is amazing! She is fun and professional and made the whole process super easy to work with her. We met Toni at a wedding expo and from the first minute we knew we wanted Toni as our celebrant. Toni has exceptional communication skills, answering all our questions and went above and beyond on the day to ensure that the ceremony set up was correct and made us feel at ease! We couldn’t have done it without her! Thank you Toni!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

You're WOW!!!! We couldn't have asked for a better day or a more amazing turn-out! Thank your for your lovely review. xxx

There are not enough amazing things we could say about Toni. Toni went above and beyond, exceeding all our expectations. She was professional, affordable and managed all of the paperwork. Not only is Toni an amazing person, she’s also an incredible celebrant. She was so easy to work/ communicate with and accommodated changes due to Covid. Toni delivered the most incredible, personalized ceremony we could have ever hoped for. Our guests were shocked to learn that we’d only met her a few times and told us it was the best ceremony they’d ever been to. We didn’t need to write vows because Toni captured everything we wanted to say to each other. There were a lot of smiles, crying and she had everyone in stitches. We 100% recommend Toni as a celebrant. Toni, thank you sincerely for making our wedding day so special and one we will never forget!

Toni Elsley is an amazing Celebrant. Toni took in everything that was important to us and created the most beautiful story. Toni has a beautiful voice that projected warmth and emotion, enthralling all of our guests. If you get the opportunity to get Toni you will have absolutely no regrets.

From the get go we knew Toni was the right fit for us. We wanted a fun, emotional and engaging ceremony and Toni certainly delivered. There was tears,happiness and laughter throughout. Our guests all told us how much they loved our celebrant after the wedding. Thanks Toni for understanding our vision and making our wedding what it was :)

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Hi lovely Jody. How much fun did we have!!!??? What an awesome, relaxed day. I particularly loved when you said to me after the ceremony "I don't know what I was so worried about, that was great!". I always aim to keep my couples relaxed and in the moment on the day, and I'm so thrilled that I managed exactly that with you and Sam. xxx

16 Feb 2022

Toni was one of the best wedding vendors we worked with. She made herself available to us, never made us feel silly with our questions and really made us feel so comfortable with our ceremony. She was absolutely amazing to work with and many of our guests complimented the way she ran the ceremony. I only wish she wasn't just my Celebrant so I could use her again and again haha 🥰

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

So let's start planning your vow renewal!!!.... We'll make it an annual event! I loved working with you both and your gorgeous little one. Great venue, great people and an awesome day all round xxx

17 Dec 2021

I am still so amazed at how our ceremony turned out! Toni’s fun, unique and bubbly personality was why we chose her. All our guests complimented us on how unique and fun our ceremony was and it really is all thanks to Toni. Thank you Toni for your support, not only on the day, but for all the months/years leading up to it. With COVID, we had to change things around, but Toni made it as smooth as possible and was accomodating to all our needs. She also made us feel so calm during the ceremony and as cliche as it sounds it felt like it was only us standing up there. Thank you again Toni, we are over the moon to have had you be part of our day and it will be a memory that will last a lifetime.

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Aww Michelle, thank you for your kind words and review. You both were super easy and fun to work with, what an amazing day it ended up being!! I'm so thrilled that I was able to deliver for you everything I had promised - a fun, relaxed, stress-free ceremony, filled with love, involving your friends and family and just enough quirk to make it totally yours... oh, and a cocktail or two thrown in to make it uber-delicious. Congratulations lovelies xxx
