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 a healthy 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.

I want your guests to remember this day long after the confetti has been swept from the dancefloor.

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

I've married more than 140 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 :)

Paul was the perfect celebrant—exactly what we wanted. We lost count of the number of times people told us after how much they loved him, how it was the best wedding ceremony they've attended, and how it hit the perfect balance between funny, relaxed, and sentimental. Could not recommend him more.

Paul was everything we wanted in a celebrant: funny, charming and eloquent, with just the right amount of romantic material in his script. People laughed the whole way through but the ceremony still felt dignified; in other words, our grandparents loved it just as much as our friends :) Many of our guests thought that Paul was an old friend because his description of us was so accurate! After our initial meeting over coffee, we completed an online questionnaire which gave Paul a pretty good idea of our story. From there, he continued tweaking the script based on our feedback until he'd created something that was perfectly representative of us and our relationship. Some of our changes were very last-minute but Paul was endlessly patient and his delivery on the day was perfect. Thanks Paul for making the whole process so easy and fun!
