Thanks for dropping by! My name is Sam and I am a Marriage Celebrant and MC based in Melbourne (but I travel far and wide; Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, anywhere!)
I love weddings, when done right it is the most fun someone can have, that's a fact (I’m pretty sure it is). As a full-time celebrant I am so lucky to help awesome couples start their big days off the right way - with ceremonies that are a perfect blend of genuine, relaxed vibes, where laughter flows freely (and happy tears make a guest appearance!).
How I work..
I have a really simple approach to the ceremonies I put together;
1. Modern: We have all sat through an “old school” ceremony that feels like it goes for 3 hours, it's tough work. I specialise in modern, fun and entertaining ceremonies. If you want a Pope Francis style ceremony I am probably not your guy.
2. Funny: Just like life, weddings should have some funny moments. I want you and your guests to laugh and enjoy the ceremony. My background is stand up comedy and podcasting, but don’t worry, this isn’t a roast or dad joke central (I couldn’t think of anything worse!). My job is to be your storyteller, it’s to get to know you both, and tell your tale like we have been friends for years!
3. Memorable: Most of all I don’t want your guests thinking “Could I get away with checking the footy scores?”. I want your ceremony to be entertaining, I want it to tell the story of you so well that they have no choice but to be as present as Tibetan monks!
Essentially, I am saying I want to put the best-ever ceremony together for you.
If this all sounds good, please get in contact and we can have a chat about your big day :)
Hello, I am a marriage celebrant who loves putting together fun ceremonies for awesome people. I love what I do. I also love travelling with my wife and daughter, football and running.. oh and also love playing the drums and using the word love, apparently.
