You won't see me with a script in my hand on the day, you will see me making the crowd laugh, making eye contact with you both and gesticulating frantically with my hands. I trained as an actor in my early 20's, have been in dozens of theatre productions and too many films to count, so I am VERY comfortable in front of a crowd.

When we first met with Stanley we both immediately knew he was the celebrant for us. He was punctual, compassionate, caring and the way he carried himself throughout gave a massive calming influence. By the time it was all said and done, our instincts were proved correct. A professional throughout the entire process, we honestly could not recommend or advocate him more to anyone considering his services. Stan was well received by our guests as well. Thank you so much Stan!

Not having any idea on what to expect, Stan guided us through the whole process, he made everything simple but most importantly he made it all fun and enjoyable. Stan added a heap of personal touches during the ceremony that made it all feel really intimate and special. In addition to this he brought a great level of fun to the ceremony, but without stealing any of the limelight. Stan is super easy going, a great communicator and I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a celebrant.

Stan made our wedding ceremony unforgettable. From the personalised touches to the seamless communication, we couldn’t have asked for more from a wedding celebrant. The ceremony felt uniquely ours, thanks to Stan’s attention to detail and warm, inclusive approach. We are incredibly grateful that Stan was part of our special day.

An blessing to have Stanley involved in our little ceremony. With just our 2 best friends as witnesses it was really important to have a celebrant that made us feel safe and comfortable. Intimacy was key with Stan, he was incredibly patient and professional whilst also making us laugh though-out.

Stan, a childhood friend, made our whole wedding process an absolute breeze. Paperwork sorted, script written, PA system provided and a casual yet professional ceremony that our entire family adored. Couldn't have asked for a bette experience.
