Questions and Answers

How long is the ceremony?

Mike Larkan

30 minutes ... but it feels shorter because your guests will feel like they're part of the wedding, not just watching it.

Do you supply a sound system?

Mike Larkan

Yes, I have a powerful, portable system. It does not require a power-point, ugly cables or a generator, therefore I can place it anywhere I want to ensure all your guests will hear the ceremony - e.g. in the middle of a park, on the beach or the best position in the venue. I play music prior to the ceremony through it as your guests arrive and then it is yours to use if you wish to play your music via IPad/IPhone, CD or USB Stick during the ceremony. I use a cordless microphone and there's a second cordless mike for you and/or readers to use.

Do you do the legal paperwork for us?

Mike Larkan

Yes, I lodge the marital documents to Births, Deaths & Marriages within days of you wedding. (I will have already asked you to supply me with birth certificates, drvers licences or passports).

Are you fully vaccinated?

Mike Larkan

Yes.

Mike is incredible to work with, of course an absolute hoot, but an excellent celebrant from start to finish. He makes the entire experience a ball for you as a couple and has your guests in hysterics! A pleasure working with him!

Mike is the best. He was so amazing and everyone was thoroughly entertained. We didn’t have to worry about a thing because Mike had it all under control. Highly recommend

Thanks Mike for doing a fantastic job with our wedding ceremony. It was funny and told our story to the guests in an entertaining way. You are great with the crowds and we absolutely loved the vows you wrote for us!

Hey Christine, your wedding certainly was a lot of fun. Both you and Kevin were fabulous to work with, Mike.

15 May 2021

Mike was very professional, charismatic and entertaining. Everyone was so amazed at how much fun the ceremony was and enjoyed taking photos and speaking to Mike afterwards. The only reason we have given Mike 4 stars and not 5 stars is that he had audio issues and his mic kept dropping out which a number of our guests did notice and this was very evident on our wedding video which was a shame. Our ceremony was very special and we would definitely recommend Mike.

16 May 2020

Mike is very charismatic and friendly. We got married during covid with 5 people and he is very experienced which came across on the day. He was perfect and we couldn't speak more highly of Mike.

14 Mar 2020

We found him really professional & funny! He was really easy to deal with. Really interactive with the guest & made the ceremony really funny everyone loved it. My guest still today talk about how great he was! Coming from a European background we are not used to having a celebrant but everyone was extremely happy with him!

7 Mar 2020

Mike was the perfect addition to our day! From day one he was easy to talk to, understood our vision and wrote a ceremony that completely matched us as a couple! It was meaningful and fun, and his charisma made sure all our guests enjoyed our ceremony. Even after the day was over, Mike stayed in contact to help with things like name changes etc Anyone wanting a ceremony that will keep their guests engaged, you can’t look past Mike!

7 Mar 2020

Mike was an absolute dream, in both the lead up to the big day and on the actual day. We felt really relaxed knowing that he had everything completely under control - we found him to be extremely organised and to be a fantastic communicator. He was fantastic with our guests, parents and bridal party and truly made our day unique.

Mike was so easy to deal with! He made everyone feel comfortable throughout the whole day. He was giving us live updates with the weather the day before. Guest from the wedding said he spoke really well, kept it humorous without taking the attention away from the wedding. He was happy to answer any of my questions at any time with super quick responses. He was fantastic!!

15 Feb 2020

He truly made such an amazing impact on our day! I’ve never heard so much laughter and seen tears at the same time. Worth every cent :)

15 Feb 2020

I've known Mike for 20 years through working together in TV (his other job) and when i was planning our wedding Mike was one the first phone calls i made, having known mike for a big chunk of my life i couldn't think of anything else to be our celebrant. He is warm, engaging, funny, incredibly professional, organised and he guided us throughout the entire process. Mike made our wedding ceremony incredibly memorable full of jokes and laughter and there was nothing better than looking at all our guests with smiles on their faces. I highly recommend Mike!

8 Feb 2020

Mike was absolutely fantastic!! We met with him twice prior to the wedding, he was super casual through the meetings and looked after the ceremony side for us. It was stress free and couldn't have asked for a better celebrant.

2 Feb 2020

Mike was so organised and we felt relaxed knowing he has everything under control. Very professional service.

25 Jan 2020

Mike is a wonderful celebrant with a great personality he loves to trow in a few jokes and all our guests loved him and we are so happy we chose him as he made our day extra special

18 Jan 2020

Mike was very professional, organised and we didn't feel any pressure from him. He explained everything clearly and we met once prior to the day and we had plenty of conversations via phone and email. The questions he asked us formed the foundation of our ceremony and any finer details we wanted were able to be added. We wrote our own vows and he made the ceremony lots as fun as well!
