We originally had our wedding booked at the Old Treasury Office but it was cancelled due to Corona. We googled celebrants in Melbourne and Paul happened to live in the building opposite us, after a phone call we knew we had found a match. In a very short space of time, Paul managed to deliver a witty, personal ceremony which made our day extra special. We ended up holding the ceremony on our balcony with my parents as witnesses, Paul and my husband's family on zoom from the Netherlands. Despite Corona regulations, and social distancing, Paul accommodated our wishes and thanks to him, we had a wonderful memorable wedding day!

One of the most unique - and most fun - ceremonies ever! I still have great memories of that day on your balcony, and thoroughly enjoyed sharing a drink with both of you and your fam. Every time I run past your place along the river I think of that day! Lots of love, Paul

Absolutely amazing!! Paul was our celebrant and while I might be biased I do think it was the best ceremony I've been to. We didn't want a traditional boring or religious celebrant, we wanted a celebrant who reflects our personality and values and Paul was exactly on point! Paul provided the perfect balance of being sentimental, humorous and entertaining. Paul captured our story perfectly with many of our guests asking if he was a friend of ours. Paul was so easy to work with and he made us feel really comfortable along the entire way. Thank you!

Hey Kate - so glad you thought it was the best ever. I had an absolute ball - from that first beer in Richmond and right up until the ceremony in those gorgeous gardens. Perfect. P.s. please pass on my well wishes to Gary, that handsome, BBQ cookin' son of a gun.

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!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

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 :)

Here's how well Paul fit in at our wedding, My brother girlfriends asked "did you know Paul already, was he a friend?" Could not recommend him more highly!

My absolute pleasure Trav. What a cracking night it was. So glad you found those rings, too! Oh boy. Looking forward to seeing you at the Builder's Arms soon ;)

Amazing, people were asking how long we'd known Paul. He is an absolute professional and made both of us feel at ease. Couldn't be happier with our choice.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Steve. I'm looking forward to a bowl of Jess' fluro green kale soup when the opportunity arrives! Haha.

Paul is magical - he signed, sealed, delivered everything flawlessly! He set the mood right for our simple, picnicky wedding in the garden. He was very pleasant to talk to, committed, accessible and available. He has a great sense of humour which makes him very easy to elaborate our love story in such a gorgeous writing. Definitely the most memorable moment for Vince and I, thank you Paul for making everything very smooth for us :)

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Ahh it brings it all back! Thanks so much. Looking forward to catching up for another Moon Dog ale followed by a comedy show afterwards. My treat! Haha. Take care. Paul

Paul was awesome. Super easy to work with, helpful with advice and processes and formalities and just a lovely person to have officiate our wedding.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Right back at ya, Kara! It was such a pleasure plus your ceremony had the greatest sound setup I've ever seen (PLUS it was my first Madonna mic!). Please pass on my hellos to Jake!

Paul was so awesome and easy to deal with. We went with the "my celebrant buddy" option and he was super present with our chosen celebrants even though they were located interstate. When Paul came to do the legals, he was super professional and our guests commented on how he was such a good hype man, keeping 130 guests entertained while we signed the documents. Warm, engaging and funny, we are so glad Paul officially married us. Thanks heaps Paul!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Hahaha Bernie I'm legit gonna write 'good hype man' on my gravestone! The best. I'm so glad I created 'My Celebrant Buddy' because it suited you two - and your chosen celebrants - perfectly. Well done!

Paul is the kindest and equally funny guy you could ever have to put you at ease on your wedding day. Nothing is too hard for Paul and he is always so organised, accommodating and sensitive to your needs for however you envision your day. Paul drove all the way to Lorne to marry us on the beach in the morning in a private ceremony with our family and friends. Months prior he met with us, did all the paperwork, ensured we were happy and everything was on track, and coached our wonderful friend to hold a commitment ceremony later that day with all of our family and friends. It was such a magical day and Paul was the perfect celebrant, he felt like an old family friend! We’re so grateful he was able to marry us and be apart of our day!!! Cheers, Rach & John

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Hey Rach and John! My pleasure! Couldn't think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning with you and your fam! So glad Greta nailed it on the day, too. Hope to catch up soon

Paul was perfect for our wedding. He was easy to get along with and made us feel comfortable from the get go and met all of our needs. He was super funny & he has a super beard. Much love from us...

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Haha cheers Nick! Myself (and my beard) thank you back in kind :) Hope to catch up for a beer around Seaford soon.

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!!

Thanks so much Allison!!

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!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

My pleasure Nish! The reaction to both of you and Al was one of the best I've even seen! Such a cracking night and can't wait to catch up again soon.

Paul was absolutely fantastic. The service he provides is unique and he's great at presenting it. In our case, i was chosen by close friends of mine to be the 'celebrant' for their wedding with Paul there to support me along the way. The tools he was able to provide me were amazing and the support was constant and very much appreciated! He helped shape an absolute cracker or a ceremony and it's something i'll never forget.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

You're an absolute natural, Al. Can't wait to do it all again!!

Paul was a pleasure to work with. From initial contact until after our wedding day. He made the process clear & straightforward. His communication was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. He guided us how to go about the whole ceremony and gave clear options that suited what we wanted for our day. His website was entertaining, clear & contained heaps of valuable information to support us to write our own vows. Many of our guests asked us afterwards if Paul was one of our friends as the ceremony was so personal and really reflected us as a couple. And although neither of us ever plan on using his wedding celebrant services again, we would both highly recommend Paul to any other couples looking to tie the knot.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks so much Ella! I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Friday afternoon :) Lots of love to Ben, Huddo and the rest of the gang at the Golden City Ewes (and also that rouge swan at Lake Weroona haha).

18 Jan 2020

Paul was such a kind and easy person to work with. He did an amazing job on our ceremony. There a people still messaging us on our honeymoon commenting on how great he and his performance of the ceremony was. He was with us throughout our whole journey helping us with it and made us feel so easy about the whole process. Even through the ceremony when we were standing up there his comforting nature kept us at ease.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

I'm so glad to hear, Agatha! And really chuffed to hear your fam was contacting you during you honeymoon. You both were so cool, calm and collected. Even during the slight wardrobe malfunction before the ceremony! Take care and speak soon.

We loved having Paul as our celebrant. He was super organised, easy going and very funny. We received lots of feedback from our guests that it was the best ceremony they had ever been too. They were in stitches throughout. I would definitely recommend stand-up-celebrant if your after something light hearted and full of chuckles.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks so much Nicole, Had an absolute ball with you, Ricky and your crew. When corona is all over we are heading back to Billboards, grabbing a beer, and recreating those landmarks of Seville and Werribee :)

Paul made our ceremony genuinely fun and put a lot of time and thought when creating his piece. Always easy to deal with and never needed chasing.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Matt! You and Zack nailed it! And that was all through some of the gustiest winds ever seen! Take care.

Paul exceeded our expectations. Not only is he blessed with insane writing skills, he is also one lovely human being. Our friends and family all thought he was a long time friend and also said it was the best ceremony they’ve ever attended. Will recommend Paul to everyone we know now!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Mel! Still recalling your ceremony - and that ad-lib Blues theme song during speeches - all these months later! I still swear I've never seen a more excitable and energetic wedding party than yours. So good!

Melanie M.

2 Jan 2020

Paul was probably our absolute favourite vendor from our wedding. Our guests said our ceremony was the best one they've ever witnessed. They thought Paul was a good, long time friend. He nailed the script so well and we are honestly forever thankful for his contribution to our special day.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Mel! Still recalling your ceremony - and that ad-lib Blues theme song during speeches - all these months later! I still swear I've never seen a more excitable and energetic wedding party than yours. So good!

From the moment we met Paul he was super easy to work with and made us feel relaxed during the progress and also on the day. He set the tone for the night and we had a lot of positive feedback from our guest saying how good and funny he was and how he understood us as people. Highly recommend Paul! Thanks again Paul, Bianca and David xx

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Right back at ya, Bianca! From London to Spring Hill! What a ride. I hope Dave recaptured the spirit of the first night you met and got his dancing shoes on at the reception as well haha :)

13 Dec 2019

One of our favourite parts of the wedding was the ceremony! When we found out about Paul's 'My Celebrant Buddy' business we were sold. We knew exactly who (a friend) we wanted to be our celebrant and Paul allowed that to happen. The whole process working with Paul was so easy, from the first coffee catch up through to the wedding day. Paul helped our friend deliver the most amazing ceremony that was incredibly personal to us and is something we will cherish forever. We could not recommend him more highly!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Katherine! I'm so glad 'My Celebrant Buddy' suited what you were after. You and Rob were awesome and, boy, how much of a natural is Adam?! He absolutely NAILED it! Great stuff.

Paul was an absolute legend the entire way through the process! He is so friendly and easy to get along with. After our ceremony practically every guest said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to when they came for our congratulations. Paul knew the perfect way to share our story include all the important bits, the right amount of lovey stuff, and awesome jokes that had everyone laughing and feeling comfortable and included. If you are looking for a celebrant that will make your ceremony truly personal and so happy book a stand up celebrant!! Seriously one of the best decisions we made!!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

'Friendly' and 'easy to get along with' perfectly describes you and Anthony, too! So happy you enjoyed the mix of the lols and love :) Also, has enough time passed for us to talk about that heckling magpie?? Hahaha.

Hands down to one of the best celebrant! Paul was just incredible from the moment we meet him to the very end. He made everything really easy for us and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day. All of our guests loved him and his great sense of humour. Thanks Paul

A Stand-up Celebrant  

My pleasure! Who knew all those messages on MSN Messenger would lead here?! Haha brilliant. Hope you are both going great and that you are still dominating the Osteopath world :)

Paul was amazing to deal with from the beginning. He is easy going and made the process so easy for us. Our ceremony was perfect and we had some many compliments afterwards. Paul was also an awesome MC during our reception. We can’t recommend him enough.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Hey Jo! So glad you enjoyed the ceremony and MCing. I had a ball! And I hope Hank is doing ok after his big shout out! Haha. Take care out there and good luck with everything!

Hannah J.

16 Nov 2019

On a day where everyone everyone met my husband with “Are you nervous?”, Paul was the only person to tell him “You’ll be fine”. We had multiple people tell us after the ceremony that they laughed, and I quote, “Not just ‘the celebrant just made a joke, time to laugh’ kind of laugh, but real laughter”. It was perfect, what more can I say?

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Haha that's darn lovely Hannah. Thanks so much. It makes it easier with such a fun, happy go lucky couple and such a terrific crowd. Not to mention the greatest garden bed I've ever seen!

From the moment my husband and I met Paul we knew he was the celebrant for us!! He is such a genuine person. He is clearly an expert at entertaining a crowd and knows how to make you feel at ease. His attention to detail and enthusiasm really guides you throughout the whole process. His humour is second to none and really reflected us as couple, Some of our guests even thought Paul was one of our friends as he knew so much about us. He embraces individuality and we couldn't have asked for a better ceremony. We highly recommend Paul.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Hey Claire! What an unforgettable day! Still chuckle to this day about some of the pranks you two pulled on each other. I have to use that glove one at some stage :) Please pass on my love to ol sexy eyes Bernie! Hope you two are doing great.

Paul was our first celebrant that we sat down with and we were sold right after meeting, he made us feel so comfortable and had all the answers to the questions or how too's We've had so many compliments from our guests and we would 100% recommend Paul every time 🙂

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Amy! What a cracking evening. Those guests had absolutely no idea a surprise wedding was on the way. Hope you two are doing well in sunny Rosebud :)

Paul was sensational, from beginning to end. From the moment we met him we knew he was the celebrant for us. We always felt relaxed and comfortable with him. Taking 'our story' he whipped up an incredibly funny, personal service that was very touching. Many of our guests have subsequently commented just how funny and great Paul was. We have zero hesitation in recommending Paul to others.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Right back at ya James!! Hope you and Aoife are doing great. I'm so glad she broke her number one rule at work and started chatting to you! What a cracking story. Take care and let's grab a pint soon!

Paul was amazing. He communicated with our ceremony celebrant, who was in Sydney, the whole time. He even came to our house to perform the legal documents with our friends which made the whole thing very special. He is a lovely, happy and accommodating person who did a great job. Thanks Paul!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

You're welcome Jo! So glad it all went smoothly and it was an absolute pleasure meeting the family!

FIVE STARS! Paul was an excellent celebrant and delivered our ceremony exactly how we wanted. He was always very easy going and made our planning for the ceremony much easier. We organised our day from a distance and Paul was always quick to respond and happy to assist in any way we needed. We were given plenty of time to ensure that everything was ready to go before our big day. Everyone who attended really enjoyed the ceremony Paul delivered and a few people asked if we were mates because he added some personalised touches to the ceremony. We would absolutely recommend Paul as a celebrant for your big day!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Five stars right back at you Nicole! It was a beautiful drive and an even better ceremony. It was a genuine pleasure being your celebrant and I hope you and Hayden are keeping well!

If you're looking for someone who can balance the right amount of humour and sentimentality then Paul is your guy! We had so many compliments on how great our ceremony was and we could not have imagined being married by anyone else. Thanks spent the time in getting to know us and it really reflected in our ceremony. Thanks Paul!!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Appreciate that, Lauren! There's nothing better than a ceremony down at Riverstone with an awesome couple and a brilliant crowd. Absolute pleasure. And yes i'm still keen to hear Jarred's version of Carly Rae Jebson’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ haha

Mandy T.

13 Oct 2019

Paul was FANTASTIC. He had a great mix of humour and lovely sentiment. Our guests raved on about how great he was and how he really set the tone for the night to come. If you are after someone who will keep your guests entertained whilst sharing in your love journey.. Paul is your guy!!!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Mandy. I still think I can jump an extra couple of feet thanks to your diamond kicks! What a super fun ceremony from start to finish. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Sunday evening. Chat soon!

Paul did an absolutely perfect job of our ceremony. After our wedding, my husband said it perfectly - it's so obvious that Paul does his job because he really does love it. We had so many comments from our guests about how fantastic a job Paul did. He created a perfect mix of heartfelt and hilarious, and told our story in a way that captured our relationship and fitted the feel of our wedding. Preparing for the big day, Paul was super supportive, answered all of our wedding-rookie questions, and gave us the perfect amount of guidance so that we knew our wedding was in good hands. He even laughed at all of my hubby-to-be's terrible jokes (thanks Paul, that must have been rough). Paul brought to life everything that we wanted our wedding to be, and more. We honestly can't recommend him highly enough.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Hahaha Ryan's jokes were hilarious! I stand by that! So glad you and your guests enjoyed the ceremony. It makes it so much fun with fine folks like yourselves and quality material like the Taylor brothers and your superb basketball skills :) Take care and hope to catch up soon.

Paul was absolutely fantastic! From the get-go we got a great vibe from him, and felt he was on the same page as us. Having him at our wedding was the best thing we ever did - he made us forget about being nervous (about standing there in front of everyone, being the centre of attention!), because the script he'd written for us was hilarious, and he delivered it so well. We wanted a fun, upbeat ceremony and that it was! My aunty almost fell off her chair laughing at everything he said. Afterwards we got so many people going out of their way to tell us how much they loved him and his speech, and how fantastic he was. I definitely recommend A Stand-up Celebrant to anyone who wants a happy, positive wedding ceremony experience!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Hey Amy :) Officiating you ceremony was the best thing I ever did! And so happy I could take the nerves off your shoulders for the day! P.s. Please pass on my apologies to your Aunty hahaha that is hilarious.

Paul was amazing and we loved him being a part of our wedding. He was layed back and funny exactly our style. Paul took the time to get to know us as a couple, which came through in the wedding script he prepared. Guests had a good laugh during the ceremony and some even asked if he was a friend of ours. Thanks Paul for making our wedding day so special.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Nicole! I think a big thanks should go to the fine management at Mill Park Safeway. who helped get you two - and your many freinds - together! It was a beautiful winter's day at Gum Gully and it was a genuine thrill being your Celebrant :)

Rhoda L.

30 Jun 2019

We used Paul's "celebrant buddy" service and loved that we could have a close friend of ours perform our ceremony while Paul made sure that the legal marriage was handled behind the scenes. Paul was really easy to communicate with and also provided our buddy with templates, tips and questionnaires for putting together the ceremony script. Thanks for making this such a smooth process, Paul, and for your help on the day with the PA system too!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

No problems Rhoda! Getting to know you and Stanly was awesome and I'm so glad it all went so smoothly (and hilariously!).

Paul was an awesome celebrant at our wedding. We received so many comments from our family and friends at how funny and engaging he was. He added his own unique flavour to our wedding to really tailor and personalise it for a unique ceremony and experience. Best of all bride was over the moon!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Bec and Mick - an absolute pleasure! From out first chat at Doncaster right to the beautiful surrounds of Zonzo, I had a ball. Hope you two are doing great (and Mick - I hope you fixed the buttons on your jacket haha).

17 May 2019

Paul was absolutely brilliant! From our first interactions with him, he guided us through a very relaxed process all the way through to the big day. Most importantly, he told our story perfectly during the ceremony. We received so many compliments about how entertaining the ceremony was and how fitting it was to us as a couple. It was the perfect way to kick our wedding off. Thanks again Paul!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Sam! You two were amazing throughout. I had a cracking day (and so glad I got to discover such an awesome venue). Still one of the best proposal stories I've ever heard, too! Take care!

Kylie T.

4 May 2019

It’s been 14 months since our wedding and people STILL bring up how good our celebrant was. They, like us, had never been involved in such a personal and relaxed (whilst still being formal and professional) wedding celebration. He spoke for just over 20 minutes. Yes he covered all the legal stuff when the time came, but by then he already had the crowd, they were laughing and smiling (and crying) and truly celebrating our relationship – and he recognised we aren’t people who like the spotlight and somehow made it feel like we were also watching the event rather than standing at the front of the audience being the main attractions. And in case this crosses your mind like it did ours, his light hearted comedy is in no way representative of a ‘roast’ – he gets the audience laughing with you, NOT at you – I can’t stress

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks so much for the review, Kylie. It strikes at the very heart of exactly what I try to provide - that perfect balance between sentimentality and chuckles! Hope to see you two for a beer soon!

27 Apr 2019

Paul was such a great addition to our big day. From meeting him to “I Do”, he helped us feel relaxed and excited about everything. The ceremony was great, hilarious but still heartfelt, and many family and friends told us afterwards that it was the best ceremony they’d seen. Thanks Paul!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

You're welcome, Louise! Who knew a pyjama party would lead to Alowyn Gardens! Please pass on my hellos to Jim, as well as Dumpling and Poppy (of course).

27 Apr 2019

Paul was just the right person for our wedding ceremony! His planning and delivery of our story was exactly what we wanted. Guests actually thought we didn’t hire him but was indeed a friend. With his back ground in stand up comedy, he appropriately captured the humour in our romance story. If you are worried there may be too much of a humorous touch for your liking, don't worry, he is open to toning it down. OR even livening it up more if your heart desires. Don't hesitate to consider him.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thanks Meg! It was a lovely ride form start to finish. Hope that musical encyclopedia is still treating you well and please pass on best wishes to Jarred! Paul xo

Peter K.

21 Apr 2019

Thanks so much Paul - we had an excellent day and really appreciate how simple of easy the whole thing was! Would highly recommend! Best regards, Peter

Paul is an outstanding celebrant, my partner and I could not be happier with Paul’s services. Paul is a lovely down to earth guy with a genuine desire to make your wedding day special. Paul made everything so easy and was always there to assist if we needed support. He captured the story of our relationship perfectly with a loving sense of humour. He made all our guests feel welcome and apart of our special day. Paul went over and above our expectations and we will always remember our wedding thanks to Paul. We will always be grateful having had Paul by our side on our special day, thank you Paul you’re amazing :)

A Stand-up Celebrant  

You two are awesome! Really appreciate that, Shamus. What a an amazing evening that was and I thoroughly enjoyed sharing a champagne with you two and all the gang afterwards. Great memories.

Paul is absolutely amazing. We knew within seconds of meeting him that he was who we wanted. It felt like we'd known him for ages. He took pieces of us and created a script that was a good mix of fun, laughs, honesty and sincerity. We had so many guests tell us that it was without doubt the best ceremony they had ever witnessed. On the day, my wife to be was overwhelmed with emotion coming down (truth be told, I was struggling myself!). Within seconds of speaking, Paul had both of us back on track and smiling again. I cannot thank him enough for making our day everything we were hoping for and more.

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Absolute pleasure, Scotty! I love that vision of seeing a bride and groom ease into a ceremony like you two did. And when you have a story as fun as yours it makes it SUPER easy to write. Take care out there!

From the first time we met Paul we knew he was the one! The one who would wed us, so we could begin our next chapter. My husband (wow that sounds strange!) and I, had made the decision we wanted our ceremony to me memorable, short and funny. We knew it was going to be emotional, so we wanted it to be humorus. Paul made everything easy too. He had us fill in a questionnaire online and we worked on it together from there. We had two meetings face to face, and everything else was done via email, which was perfect for us, because we both work full time, and had 6 months to plan our wedding. To make things even better, he took care of all the marriage paperwork, so all we had to do was give him proof of our identity, and this was also included in the total fee. Our day happened nearly three weeks ago and we really loved what Paul did for us. Our guests talked about him all night, and the next day at the post brunch too. People (including us) were in fits of laughter and we love the fact it wasn't a mushy ceremony with quotes and readings you hear at every wedding. Our wedding was unique, memorable, funny and complete within 30 minutes. You won't regret hiring him for your day, and I believe our family and friends will reminince and talk about our ceremony for years to come!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Ahhh thanks so much Michelle. That is above and beyond. This is the sort of review I show couples to give an idea of what I try and provide. Really appreciate it! Hope to catch up soon.

Paul was amazing and so easy to work with. From the moment we met him we knew we wanted Paul to marry us. Paul took care of all the legal stuff and made the process so easy, even the writing of our vows was made so much easier. Thank you Paul for everything!

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Thank YOU for everything Mel! You two made it so easy and seamless from first catch up and right up until the ceremony xo

12 Apr 2019

Paul told our story perfectly, eliciting laughter and tears from our friends and family! He continued as our upbeat and energetic MC at our reception and our guests fell in love with him. Sam and I barely noticed any administrative requirements, he took care of everything. Best celebrant ever :)

A Stand-up Celebrant  

Right back at ya Lauren! I'm still feeling the buzz from the those espresso martinis. What an incredible day, incredible setting and incredible couple. Hope to catch up again soon :)

We caught up with Paul a few times before the wedding to plan the ceremony - it was a relaxed experience and felt like catching up with a friend! Paul managed to put together a lighthearted yet beautiful ceremony from the random snippets of info about how we met and what we were like as a couple. I remember when we received the first draft, my partner and I were blown away by how well he captured us and our experience and were laughing in bed as we read it - Paul is extremely talented! I was originally a bit skeptical about having a ‘stand up celebrant’ - but Paul finds the perfect balance of fun and sentiment without being tacky. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and many of our guests have commented that it was the best ceremony they have been to as it really showcased us as a couple and gave guests some insight into our journey in a warm, fun and entertaining way. We can’t thank Paul enough for his time and patience. We HIGHLY recommend you lock him in for your ceremony - you won’t regret it!

Thanks Mel! Finding that balance between fun and sentiment is what it's all about! And so glad you enjoyed reading (and hearing) the script as much as I enjoyed writing it (and saying it!). Take care out there.
