Let's create your perfect ceremony.

I have been a marriage celebrant for six years now and have loved every minute of it. You get to meet all kinds of different people and I feel I am laid back and adaptable to any couple’s needs.

I want your ceremony to be exactly that, yours!!! I don’t want to have to cut and paste ceremonies, every couple and every love story is unique, and I endeavour to bring that out in your ceremony.

I’m also about having fun, so as long as the legal aspects are covered, I am happy to indulge in whatever plans you have for your ceremony.

Choosing a celebrant who will provide the opportunity for you to discover your style and express your wishes, resulting in a memorable wedding day, is a giant leap towards your dreams being realised.

I would love to hear from you

Josh was really good and our initial celebrant cancelled on us and referred Josh. He was super flexible and met with us a couple of times prior to the wedding. He gave us a lot of information before the wedding and was well prepared. Josh was great on the day and we were really happy.

Thanks so much Josh got helping to make our wedding perfect. We had so many comment about how great our celebrant was . You helped make the planning process so easy which is exactly what a stressed bride needed. We were aiming for a fun relaxed atmosphere which I think you nailed. We will recommend you to everyone we know getting married x

Oh my gosh, what can we say about Josh! He was one of my favourite parts about our wedding. Not only was he a lovely and relaxed guy he presented very well and was simply likeable from the get go. We felt like we had a friend marrying us! He seemed to be genuinely be happy for us and be totally invested in what we were doing, this guy is passionate about his job. He was totally flexible and open to us incorporating personal touches into our vows and made it all very easy for it all to come together. Once our ceremony was done I was actually sad to see him leave! After looking into several very popular and highly renowned (even award-winning) celebrants on the Mornington Penninsula I am so so glad that we had Josh as our celebrant. (Funnily enough, A few months later I then went to someone's wedding who had one of these award-winning celebrants, and I cannot say that I was very impressed compared to the job that Josh did!) So there you go ladies and gentlemen, if you want the real best celebrant on the Mornington peninsular and Melbourne area this is your man!

Josh was just so relaxed and fun. We loved every minute having Josh part of our day. All our guest loved him too. He did so well and so professional working up against our little angel 2year old who wanted the stage on the day.

Josh was our celebrant for our recent wedding and we can't recommend him enough! Our day was just perfect and Josh helped make our ceremony really special and memorable. He made it personal, funny and it went for the perfect amount of time. He stuck with us for two years whilst we got through COVID postponing and uncertainty. Alex and I had no idea what we were getting into, but Josh helped make it all nice and easy. He was also fantastic in the lead up to our big day. Thanks so much Josh!

I saw Josh at a wedding many many years ago and knew he would be the celebrant I'd like to use on my own special day, and surely enough I was lucky enough to. He made everything so easy, explaining every step, and calming us down at any stage it was needed. Josh is professional, friendly and just an all round great guy! Thank you for being apart of and making our day

What more can you say about Josh other than simply amazing. He took the time and puts in the effort to get to know us as a couple and learn about our love story. This allowed Josh to deliver a ceremony that was so full of love and happiness, he told our story so unbelievably amazing and our ceremony was just beautiful thanks to Josh!

He was amazing, definitely give him a 5/5! He came out to meet us and he left us with a lot of information which was awesome cause we didn't know what we wanted to do. Communication was great.
