Ceremonies so fun even your mother-in-law will smile.

As a young Celebrant I stand for fun, laid-back ceremonies with lots of chuckles and an equal dose of sentimentality. It's my full-time job. It's what I do. 

I want your best friends to cry with joy. I want your uncle to choke on his chewing gum with laughter.

For me, weddings are like hitting a triple-word score with two q’s and a z. It’s like slapping down a draw-four wildcard. It’s like finding the Gameboy key in A*mazing. It’s like beating Rainbow Road on Mario Kart. It’s like… you get the picture.

I also have some cool features like 'Pimp My Celebrant' - which lets you choose exactly what you want me to wear! 

I’m Melbourne based. I live in Collingwood but can travel from Geelong to Yarra Valley to Mornington and beyond. I do weddings in Melbourne. I live in Melbourne. I’m repeating the word Melbourne because it’s great for Google search.

I've married more than 250 couples since November 2016 and loved EVERY single one #truth

Get in touch and let's chat about your big day. If you think I’m your guy, then let’s create the best darn ceremony ever.


Cheers,
Paul

Paul was incredibly professional, right from the get-go. At our first meeting he made the effort to ensure we fully understood the whole 'wedding process', then he got right into getting to know us better. Both my new husband and I found him charming, funny and warm. To us, it felt like we had known him forever. Then - the easy questionnaire! Wow. Paul has set up an incredibly easy questionnaire that not only was easy to complete but made my husband and I laugh and reminisce already. This questionnaire translated into a script that was prepared by Paul (in a super timely fashion, no less - from memory less than a week), which perfectly captured the essence of our relationship. We barely made any edits to it, that's how spot on it was! Paul even attended our wedding rehearsal - even though this wasn't something we agreed earlier. What a legend, On the day, Paul was on time and helped with the boys greeting guests and getting set up. The whole ceremony went off without any hiccups. He spoke so well and every one agreed it was the most heartfelt wedding ceremony they'd been to in a long time. Most people commented that they thought Paul was a friend of ours, that's how well he captured our relationship! Honestly, I can't recommend Paul Bonadio highly enough. JUST BOOK HIM!

Hiya Sheridan - thanks so much for the kind words! Adored every single thing about your ceremony, and it was the perfect example of why I love this job. You two are absolutely amazing people and such a pleasure to work alongside :)

My husband and I could not recommend Paul enough! All of our guest were commenting on how special and different he made the ceremony. I all I wanted was for the celebrant not to be stuffy or tell our story awkwardly - Paul was hilarious and told our story better than we could tell it ourselves. If you are planning on getting married in Melbourne, 100% ask Paul to be your celebrant. He is worth every cent and was in communication with us all the way through, making sure we were prepared. He also saved the day when I forgot my fabulous new iPhone 7 didn't have an AUX jack (cheers Apple) so he was able to play the ceremony music on the speaker from his own phone. Thanks for everything Paul!!

Thanks so much Emma. Hope you and Robbie are loving wedded life and overindulging in degustation menus and the champagne life :) If you're ever back in town let me know and we'll catch up!

We really wanted a laid back, fun and casual ceremony, and Paul absolutely hit the mark. He made the whole process super easy for us, and managed to capture our relationship perfectly in his wedding script. Our guests have all said it was the best ceremony they'd ever seen.

Aw shucks! Thanks Bianka. You two are amazing. Hope Benson recovered from his bee sting and that Palmer can still nail a handplant kick flip :)

Absolutely Amazing. We couldn’t be more happier. Communication was amazing and so fast to reply. Our day was perfect and we had so many compliments on how much they loved our celebrant. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I can't recommend Paul enough! He was patient, communicative, reasonably priced, professional and was invested in our special day. We hosted an engagement party that we turned into a surprise wedding and part of the surprise was having one of my groomsmen, Al to officiate the ceremony. Paul was able to make this happen through his brilliant My Celebrant Buddy service. Paul coached Al, assisted him make a script, and got all the legalities out the way so that Al could share his take on our story. Needless to say, the crowd went nuts!!! Thanks again Paul!
