75 years young, 4500 ceremonies, still going strong.

Following my appointment by the Attorney-General of Australia in 1995, I have conducted 4500 ceremonies. I get great satisfaction when performing all the varied duties of an Authorized Celebrant and being able to liaise with all types of people.

Celebrancy is the best job I have ever had and being 75 years young, life and ceremonies couldn't be better. It is a great feeling being a part of one of the happiest days in the life of the bride and groom and their families.

I am not a serious type of person but I do not tell jokes during a ceremony - I see the job of a celebrant, is to conduct the wedding ceremony in a thoroughly happy and relaxed atmosphere but at the same time with dignity and meaning. I strive to maintain a balance between the formal and personal aspects of the ceremony.

I am a member of the Association of Authorized Celebrants of Victoria, an organisation that demands a very high standard of quality and excellence from its members.

I provide the Bride and Groom with many choices of ceremonies for: introductions, readings, vows, rings, giving away, askings, tying the knot, cultural customs. Other ideas include; appreciation certificates for flower girls and page boys, background history of the bride and groom and introduction of the bridal party to the guests.

Appointed in 1994 and I have officiated at over 4500 ceremonies as a celebrant,in every conceivable location, from hot air balloons to my office. Experience has shown me to conduct ceremonies according to the couples wishes.

We had John Byrne as our celebrant and he was fantastic. Right away we could tell how much of a character he was and also so easy to deal with. He brought the right amount of humour and seriousness on the day. Our guests loved him!
