Recipient of 'Brides Choice Award' in the Best Female Celebrant category makes Lisa, arguably one of the best celebrants in Victoria!

What makes an amazing, heartfelt, and memorable wedding ceremony that everyone loves? Thoughtfulness and a GREAT celebrant. Your wedding day should be a relaxed and fun celebration of your love for one another.  A great ceremony reflects your vision, values, and your heartbeat and I love creating a personalised ceremony that will make that precious event one to remember. 

I am an award-winning celebrant with a perfect 5-star rating.  I love what I do and it shows in the stunning ceremonies that I craft for couples. My objective is to capture the very essence of who you are as a couple and to write a ceremony that is relaxed and full of beautiful moments.  I am also qualified to help you navigate the complexities of the legal process of getting married. 

If you want a professional, relaxed and funny wedding that you and your guests will be talking about for a long time.  Then I am the celebrant for you.

These are the most important elements that make a memorable wedding ceremony:

*Your wedding is personal and reflects your character, romance, and personality.

*It is crafted to have moments of wonder and surprise.

*It is unique.

*Your friends and family are taken along on the journey with you. The worst thing is when the audience feels awkward, uncomfortable, or disconnected.

*Transitions in the wedding ceremony are crucial. This takes practice and skill but when done properly it makes the ceremony feel effortless and people are taken on a smooth and meaningful journey.

*Well thought out, practised and communicated. This prevents cringe moments or train wrecks and puts your nerves to rest.

*Time management. Nothing is worse when everyone is waiting for 20 min for the bridal party to arrive. I attended one wedding where the bride arrived first and no groom. Eeeeekkk. Panic and terror set in.

*No alcohol. Not only is it in very poor taste, but the marriage can also be contested or actually not legitimate if either party is drunk. The celebrant can also refuse to do the ceremony.

Your wedding doesn’t have to be elaborate to be successful. It is all in the planning and execution. Sometimes the most beautiful wedding is simple and sweet. The main ingredient is authenticity. It must accurately reflect who you are and your lives together.

I can't wait to meet you!

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How long does a ceremony go for?

Your ceremony should be so amazing that the time just whooshes past and all you want to do is to  around and do it all over again.   Therefore time should not be an issue if people are mesmerised and engaged.  

However, for those practical souls out there,  the average no frills ceremony is about 20 min.  

My ceremonies sit at around 30 min.   This is a nice balance between the legal requirements and some creative and precious moments.    Each piece that you add into crafting the ceremony takes up a little more time.  Therefore the more readings, poems, songs, rituals, blessings, prayers, the little longer it goes.

Who should I chose to be my witnesses?

The legal requirements for your witnesses are to have two people over the age of 18 years of age.

I encourage my couples to be creative.  The more people you involve in the ceremony, the more engaging and interesting it is.  You have most likely already chosen your bridal party and the person to walk you down the aisle.  What other signifigant people can you honour with this role?

What about both mothers?  They often get overlooked, especially the mother of the groom.

What about grandparents, fathers, mentors, or other significant people in your world?

This should be a special and privelaged part of the wedding ceremony.

What about the music, how many songs do I need?

Music plays an essential role in a wedding ceremony.  It sets the mood and tone of the event.

Technically you need three songs for the ceremony and about 20 min of pre-service music as guests arrive.

One song for the entrance of the bride

One for the signing of the legal documents, which can take about 5 min as I need to record 15 signatures.

One song for the recessional - usually a song that is upbeat, fun and matches the celebration.

I have also done many weddings where the bride chooses two songs for the entrance.  One for the  bridesmaids then a special one for the entrance of the bride.

****If at all possible ***** alwasy choose live music.  Having a musican play and or sing changes the dynamic of the event.  It take the mood and ambiance to a whole other level.   Think of how you feel when you are at dinner or at an event that has live music.  People love, love, love, it.   It  usually costs  around $400.00 for an hour of live music for the ceremony and I have lots of great artists that I can recommend.

This is money that I believe is well worth spending.  People are engaged and tuned in before the bride has even arrived and it only gets better as the ceremony unfolds.

My now wife and I took our time looking around for the right Celebrant for our special day and as soon as we sat down with Lisa, we knew she was right for us. Lisa has a down to earth personality with a great sense of humor and is very passionate about her role as a celebrant. We felt like we had known her for years! Lisa's professionalism and experience made the whole process stress free and easy. She walked us through all the steps required, communicated thoroughly to ensure that we knew what had to be done whilst having a joke and laugh throughout the entire process. Once you sit down and meet with Lisa, you will understand why we chose her to be our celebrant. Thank you once again Lisa for making our special day that much more memorable. Kam & Mel

Kam and Mel. I get all teary and emotional thinking about your wedding day. It was so, so beautiful. Your love and the love of your families was so palpable. It was a huge honour for me to be involved. Thank you for this lovely review. Lisa. xxx

My husband and I absolutely adore Lisa and can’t thank her enough for our wonderful wedding ceremony. Each time we saw Lisa prior to the wedding it felt like catching up with an old friend, and whenever we felt overwhelmed by the wedding process she was our own supportive cheer squad to help us through. Professional, understanding and supportive, the personal touches are the ones we really appreciated when creating our ceremony. Lisa was there to help us find our readings, help us brainstorm creative ideas for our wedding guest book, and actually introduced us to a string quartet group in Melbourne who played for our ceremony (who we would also happily recommend). An absolute pleasure to work with!

Corrinna and Luke thank you so much for this beautiful review. It was such an honour and a joy to be part of your wedding day. All the very best in your new life together. xxx Lisa.

We found Lisa just by chance when we saw a sign in Warrandyte! We thought it was just by chance, but now we think it was fate. We were both incredibly nervous planning a same sex wedding, we didn’t know where to start or what to do. Lisa supported us throughout the entire process, guided us in the right direction when we felt overwhelmed, went above and beyond more times than we can count whilst also standing beside us cheering us on with lots of cuddles along the way. Now when we look back on the day and think of Lisa, we both feel the warmth and excitement she brought to the entire experience. Our guests all commented and said Lisa kept everyone engaged and was beautiful to watch and listen to. I hate to think what it would be like if we didn’t find Lisa, she is truly one of a kind and so incredibly special.

Darling girls. You are both just the best. What an emotional roller coaster we had on this journey. One of the very first same sex weddings in Australia AND getting an early change of date by the Attorney General. It was an incredible and unforgettable day. You both will always have a place in my heart. xxxx Lisa.

Lisa, from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for being part of our happily ever after. It means the world to us that you were able to be our celebrant. From the moment that we met you, we knew you were our Celebrant. After our coffee in Warrandyte, Lachlan and I both looked at each other in the car and said: “We are booking Lisa.” We are just so obsessed with all your work and thank you so much for all the preparation and guidance you provided us in the lead up to the wedding. We will forever cherish the memories of our ceremony.

Lisa was absolutely perfect! She's a real character and so fun and bubbly. She made our ceremony super easy and really special! I would highly recommend Lisa for anyone looking for a funny, easy-going but also super organised celebrant!

16 Nov 2019

We used Lisa as we had previously met her before we had planned on getting married, we knew from the start we would use her as soon as the time came! She speaks so easily and really knows how to make everyone comfortable and relaxed! We had so many comments about how good she was! Thankyou Lisa!

Lisa was amazing in the lead up to our wedding. She made sure that we knew everything that was going to occur and that we were organised and excited for the day. She was always quick to contact us back and was extremely reliable. On the day, seeing her at the ceremony, she was very calming, and everything went off without a hitch under her direction. Highly recommended!!

Absolutely amazing. Lisa made the whole process so easy. She is fantastic at making the ceremony exactly what you want. She had amazing ideas on how to make people feel apart of the day and that was really important to us.

Lisa was such an amazing celebrant. From the very beginning she was so easy going, friendly and hilarious. We felt at ease instantly. Communication was great the whole way through and she built a ceremony completely tailored to us. On the day Lisa was a lovely presence, so many of our guests mentioned how fantastic she was. She made us feel extremely relaxed throughout the whole ceremony. Couldn't recommend more! Thanks Lisa!

Wow... Carly and Matt... what an amazing wedding day it was. Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It was my honour and absolute pleasure to be part of your precious day. Love to you both.... Lisa xxx

Lisa has a generous, radiant personality that immediate makes you feel at ease. From the moment we met her we knew we were in good hands. We didn't know much about the legal side of it all and she ensured everything was organised, processed and arranged for us with perfect ease. Lisa held the ceremony both in the lead up and on the day. She allowed and supported us to write, contribute, wrestle with, explore and craft a ceremony that felt like a perfect fit. On the day she was the calm and clear holder of the space, putting everyone at ease. She made room for joy, fun, depth and gravity- everything we needed. All the people involved felt confident of their role and reassured by Lisa's presence. She was professional and yet so personable and supportive. We couldn't recommend her enough.

We could not recommend Lisa highly enough! Not only was she extremely professional and knowledgeable but she took the time to get to know us and made sure that the ceremony was exactly what we had envisioned. Lisa has a very warm nature that we loved and our guests complimented.

Lisa provided an absolutely fantastic service for our wedding. She understood exactly what we wanted and provided a beautiful and romantic ceremony with just the right amount of fun and laughter. We had loads of positive feedback from guests commenting on how wonderful they found her service and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any future bride and groom. She listened to our thoughts, offered lots of suggestions and then produced a fantastic ceremony without too much fuss at all. Definitely a 5 star rating.
