Fun, Fresh, Fabulous Ceremonies

Whether it's an epic three-day loveathon, or a short and sweet ceremony, I'm in!

I truly love getting to know my couples and what has brought them to make the decision to get married. I work hard to create ceremonies that reflect your vibe, and also fit with your crowd. I love including your guests in the ceremony and letting them know how important they will be through all the days of your marriage. 

I specialise in simple but fabulous ceremonies, with equal amounts of humour and heart. 

Most couples are after a relaxed, fresh, friendly approach to their ceremony, and it's so important to get it right because the ceremony is what kicks off your wedding and sets the tone for the whole day.

Guests always think I'm an old friend of the couple! I really pride myself on getting to know you and getting the tone of your ceremony right.

I love a bit of crowd participation and banter! My mission is to allow everyone to feel so comfortable they WANT to chime in, including you two! I warm the crowd up and let them know what they're going to be asked to do (ie, if the ceremony is unplugged, if they will be asked to throw flower petals, or stick around for a group photo).

I make sure to meet your families, wedding party, photographer, videographer and musicians before the ceremony.

If you are nervous about public speaking, I will help you through it.

My background is professional theatre (Priscilla, Hairspray, Dreamlover, Sydney Theatre Company), I've toured my cabaret shows around the world, and I'm a voiceover artist (this might be familiar to you: "Peppa Pig, 5pm weekdays on ABC kids!)" Now my hubby and I operate a pub in Wyong on the NSW Central Coast. 

But your wedding day is not about me, it's about YOU! I use my years of experience in front of a crowd to create a relaxed and happy mood for you and your guests.

I can also MC your reception! Let’s face it, asking a guest to stick to the run sheet is hard work (especially after 17 champagnes). As your MC I work with everyone (caterer, venue, photographer, videographer, Aunty Mary) to make sure the whole reception runs smoothly. So you can just chill and enjoy the day, and let the professionals do their job. 

I'm always contactable, and once you’ve booked me in, I’m totally devoted to you. 

Even if you don't really know what you want, I will give you lots of suggestions.

I am more expensive than a lot of other celebrants, if you want a cheap celebrant, I'm not your girl. My pricing is a reflection of the time and effort and experience I bring to the whole day. As they say in the classics, you get what you pay for!

My rate for a fabulous ceremony is $1800.

I can also marry you in a legals-only elopement, $850. Super simple! It's just us, very low key, with 2 witnesses, usually at home or at a beach.

My rate to MC is $800

I don't charge travel fees for the Hunter Valley, Central Coast or Sydney.

Blue Mountains travel fee $300

I bring my PA system, and take care of all the legal documents. 


My hubby and I are the Co-Captains of the Royal Hotel in Wyong. I'm a marriage celebrant, MC, cabaret singer and Party Starter.

Marney is perfection, grace, & elegance. The best celebrant we could ever have dreamt of. Seriously! From the get go Marney was relaxed and friendly. She guided us through the process up to the day, with helpful suggestions, a suite of resources for working on words, and a little push out of our comfort zones where it mattered. On the day Marney made sure everything worked out beautifully. From her storytelling, herding skills, fabulous dress sense, fun spirit, energetic engagement, almost telepathic ability to foresee our needs (hello glass of sparkling when we most needed it) and her out of this world voice. We couldn't recommend her more highly. Just brilliant. Thanks so much.

Oh what can I say about Marney! We loved her, our family loved her everyone loved Marney! My wife and I got married in October 2020. Marney came in and saved the day when our celebrant was stuck in Melbourne. Marney was able to seamlessly work her magic and fit the role perfectly. We laughed and cried and laughed. It was a perfect mix of involving family in the ceremony and focusing on us. Marney even helped reassure me when I had a slight wardrobe malfunction right before the ceremony. We were a bit stressed being up in front of so many people, but Marney made us feel so comfortable. We have so many beautiful photos of my wife and I throwing our heads back laughing or reminiscing on when we first met. I can’t recommend Marney enough. Our family and friends still talk about her!

Marney absolutely lives up to her last name ....she is an absolute QUEEN!! Booking a celebrant was the one thing we were not looking forward to doing in the lead-up to our wedding. We have been to so many weddings where the celebrant has been awful (forgetting the brides name, trying desperately hard to be a game show host, and somehow weaving the bride cleaning the toilet into the ceremony) and as such, we avoided this part of the wedding planning. BUT - WE FOUND MARNEY!! She was everything we were looking for and more. Absolutely genuine, completely open to our requests and so calm. Marney was wonderfully funny without being over the top and corny. She embraced our ceremony adjustments, bantered with our guests, and, made us feel like we had a friend marrying us! I would get married again just so Marney could officiate!

LOOOVED MARNEY!!! Marney made the whole process so easy and relaxing. She got to know both of us and wrote a ceremony that was truly personal. She had us all laughing and crying throughout the ceremony and made it really special.

Marney was just incredible from day one! She was kind, easy going, diligent and an all round pleasure to work with. Our ceremony had everyone in fits of laughter, floods of tears and everything in between! She made the entire process relaxing, stress free and easy for both of us. I couldn’t recommend Marney enough! We loved every minute of our ceremony and can’t wait to watch our video just to relive it over and over. She captured our personalities and our story perfectly and was just an absolute super star! Thanks for such an incredible ceremony, Marney!
