Look me up on Facebook as “CelebrantPenny” to see what my happy couples say about my service.

I am young and energetic, with a relaxed, warm and friendly approach to weddings and other ceremonies.

My weddings are relaxed, yet professional and can take into account yourspecific needs to create a unique and special occasion. I enjoy the Celebration and this can be seen in the way I approach and conduct the ceremonies.

Your Ceremony is a celebration of friendship, love and commitment. It is the day that you marry your best friend in front of your closest friends and family.

Each ceremony is unique and reflects the feelings and beliefs of the couple. To ensure your ceremony is customised to your liking, you will both be offered a full suite of choices. You can write your own ceremony or I can create a customised ceremony just for you.. It is all up to you, and I am here to provide unlimited assistance to help you prepare a dream day that is just right for you.

A complete service is provided, legal requirements will be explained to you, as well as the various elements of your ceremony. A rehearsal will be held, and a PA system is provided for your important day.

I am located in Melbourne's Outer East Region, and will travel to your selected location, as required.

She was a delight and the perfect person to marry these shy young people. Her friendly and relaxed nature allowed these guys to enjoy the celebration. Highly recommended.

Penny was a wonderful Celebrant and gave such a relaxed and cheerful vibe to our ceremony. She is warm, friendly and bubbly - exudes so much joy in her job! She made the whole process very smooth and easy for us, especially on the day and is professional, prepared and full of great ideas for songs, praises, vows. We loved having Penny as our celebrant and as she came recommended to us, we would definitely recommend her to others. Thanks so much Penny!

how can we make a mention of same-sex couples and marriage equality in our civil ceremony?

we're not gay ourselves, but our dear friends are and we were wondering if celebrants would be open to making a special mention of it during our ceremony

Celebration Services - Penny Hartelt

Many couples have asked the same question.

After the monitum, which is the legal bit of the ceremony where I have to say "Marriage, according to the law in Australia is the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life"

I then add at the end "However this is not the view of Groom and Brideand they are looking forward to a day when a legally recognised marriage is a right any couple can share"


"However Groom and Bride are looking forward to a day when everyone’s love is recognised and a legal ceremony is able to be shared by everyone who has found the person they want to spend the rest of their life with"
