Oh wow, for the 2nd year in a row, I've been voted #1 CELEBRANT (2023 + 2024) for the GEELONG & SURF COAST REGION! I'm pretty damned stoked about that and I'm forever grateful to all my gorgeous couples who took the time to vote for me!!! Thank you lovelies!

Ok, back to you ... Planning a wedding is an exciting time for both you and your partner but I know it can also be a little overwhelming. If you'd like to just have a chat about your situation, give me a call or drop me a message. I'm a wealth of information about all things weddings and really happy to help. No obligation on your part to book me. I get a kick out of helping couples navigate their way to MARRIED!

If you engage me as your celebrant, you'll find I'm a very relaxed and thorough person so I’ve got everything covered re your ceremony! Checkout my reviews and you'll see this is what they say. I love a good laugh and my ceremonies are full of fun, laughter, perhaps a few happy tears and lots of lightness. I don't do boring or crap ceremonies that drag on and on. I work with you to create a ceremony that you'll look back on and love.

This is my full-time gig so I am able to respond quickly and MY couples are my full-time focus.

Choosing the right celebrant you can work with to create an authentic ceremony that reflects you both as a couple is an important decision so I always recommend meeting up for a coffee or a drink or over zoom to ensure there is a good connection and that we'll make a good team. 

Depending on your requirements, I can create a very basic 'legals only' ceremony right through to a fully personalised and custom-made ceremony with all the bells and whistles. It is totally up to you!

If you'd just like to chat and run a few things past me, contact me and we can talk weddings, mainly yours lol!


I'm calm, relaxed, professional and I love to engage you and your guests with some humour and fun. I have great reviews here, on my website, Google, FB and in my Insta highlights. I've married over 300+ couples and absolutely love it! If I sound like your type of person, give me a call or drop me a text and we can take it from there. Don't wait, get in touch, Sue :)

Exclusive Offer
Your Special Day with an Awesome Ceremony to kick it off!

I like to give you a fee that includes ABSOLUTELY everything. For example, there are no hidden travel fees, I include a rehearsal on-site and a copy of your Official Marriage Certificate from Births, Deaths & Marriages which is different to the certificates you sign on the day. 


My Bespoke Wedding package includes the following:

  • A no-obligation meeting to talk through your ideas for the wedding and to see if I'm the type of celebrant you can connect with. This may be over zoom, skype or face to face.
  • Unlimited meetings to complete the legal paperwork and ceremony preparation (it might only take 1 or 2 if we've done the paperwork at our first meeting)
  • A fabulous ceremony is written specifically for you two. I've found my niche and love creating a couple's story which I embed within the ceremony. My couples and their guests LOVE this the most.
  • I’ve gathered some really cool tools to create unique and fun ceremonies and would love the opportunity to discuss these with you, eg: whisper vows
  • Suggestions and advice along the journey
  • A full rehearsal at the ceremony location
  • All travel in Geelong, Surf Coast and Bellarine region
  • My modern BOSE PA system (Bluetooth and wifi) If you’re not having live music, you are welcome to run the music through my PA.
  • My Wedding Kit - this comprises a questionnaire, a worksheet that helps you narrow down exactly what you want in your ceremony (or don't want, lol), heaps of options for vows, ring exchange, rituals and readings should you wish to include some. I also have a vows 'cheat sheet' which helps couples write their own vows if they’d like to but are having trouble getting started.
  • I'm readily available via SMS, phone, email and skype
  • I work one-on-one with each of you if you wish to keep personal vows secret until the ceremony
  • Your Official Marriage Certificate (OMC). I apply, on your behalf, when I'm uploading your documents to the Victorian Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages (BDM) for your OMC. Once they register your marriage, they will send you via express post your OMC which you'll need if you wish to change your name on official documents, eg: passport, licence, etc. Not all celebrants offer this service and many don't include it in their fee.
  • Preparation and completion of all legal documentation including:
  • The NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage)
  • The DONLIM (Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage), and
  • The three Certificates of Marriage which are signed at the ceremony.
  • Fulfilment of all legal requirements prior to and following the ceremony.



Absolutely. Couples need to feel totally comfortable and able to trust their celebrant and see that there is a genuine connection. We can catch up over a coffee or a drink, or two, or if time is an issue, let's do a zoom!

No problem, I charge a lesser amount as I don't have to create a bespoke ceremony. I have created a pre-written ceremony which is short and sweet but covers everything from a legal perspective. You can add in some personal vows and I can even provide witnesses if needed! Give me a call to discuss.

I am in THE.BEST national celebrants association known as The Celebrant Society, and this is the best way I've found to benchmark fees. We also share amazing ideas on new ceremony trends and ways to pump up the ceremony so you're getting top class content.

Because I take my role seriously and want to do the very best I can for you two. I will guide and assist you through the legalities of getting married and I will provide you with as much support and help as you need to make your day everything you'd dreamt of. We will work as a team from day one right through until the ceremony is perfect and I dclare you married. Go on, do it! Contact me, you've nothing to lose and you might just find yourself a celebrant!

We chose Sue as she clearly seemed to love what she does and conducted herself in a highly professional manner. Sue’s ceremony preparation processes were easy and clear and she crafted a ceremony that we both loved and importantly, she ensured was proofed for errors well ahead of time. She also supported my husband with his vows. We were so grateful Sue was willing to offer us a rehearsal given we did not have a bridal party, this put us both at ease. My grandmother died the night before the wedding and I entrusted Sue to add an acknowledgement of this within the ceremony with a quick text - I will be forever grateful to Sue for this. Sue engaged our guests from start to finish; we loved our ceremony and being married by Sue. If the ceremony is important to you, invest in the best in the business.


Sue Warner - Bellarine Celebrant

Wow, thanks Meg! I'm stuck for words other than to say how much I enjoyed working with you both and how much I loved the actual day, right down to the Magna entrance lol. All the best to you and Pat and I hope we cross paths again, Sue x

October 2023

Sue was exceptional! She wrote the most beautiful ceremony perfect for our laid back personalities. She made us laugh and cry (happy tears) and made us feel so comfortable and helped us so much in writing our personal vows. I will be recommending Sue to everyone!

Sue made our special day incredible, memorable and magical. We had so many people comment on how amazing the ceremony was, we loved how Sue was able to tie in her humour whilst being professional. We can’t recommend her enough to anyone wanting to get married, she’ll make it a day to remember.

May 2024

From our very first meeting, Sue's professionalism, passion, and organization was a stand out. She took the time to understand our story and crafted a ceremony that was perfectly tailored to us. Sue’s warmth and enthusiasm made the entire process enjoyable and stress-free. Her attention to detail was impeccable. Sue’s ability to blend humor and heartfelt moments kept our guests engaged and made our ceremony truly memorable. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. Sue’s dedication and genuine care made our day perfect, and we feel incredibly lucky to have had her officiate our wedding. We wholeheartedly recommend Sue to anyone looking for a celebrant who will make their day extraordinary.


Sue Warner - Bellarine Celebrant

Thank you so much, David. I felt so privileged to play a part in your very emotional and family oriented ceremony. I loved it! All the best to you and Caryn x

March 2024

Sue was our celebrant for an intimate ceremony and an absolute gem. Sue ensured our day was very “us”, we were not after anything traditional and Sue understood the assignment. Not to mention made every tweak possible so that my anxiety would not get the better of me. The ceremony was the perfect amount of funny and sentimental , whilst behind the scenes Sue fulfilled all the admin work without complaint even though we made several errors on paperwork along the way. Everyone said it was the best wedding/ceremony they had been to especially adoring the personalised nature such as the guest answered survey questions about the bride and groom sent out before the ceremony (a nice surprise for us to), the back story of our relationship and the vows to be taken by the guests at the start. There were many tears and much laughter through out and we were so very happy with our choice to have Sue apart of our day.


Sue Warner - Bellarine Celebrant

Thanks Ashley and what a wonderful day it was! I really loved playing a small role in creating your special day and wish you and Pete all the best for the future. Love, Sue x
