Young, laid back celebrant, keen to make your special day memorable and magical

Young, enthusiastic, adaptable celebrant in the Melbourne area.

I fell into this biz after doing a mate’s wedding some years ago and becoming addicted to the smiles, the tears of joy and the laughter. I mean, who doesn’t love a wedding! I’m super lucky to have had a front-row seat to so many weddings around the world and can’t wait for each new occasion on the calendar.

One of my strengths is being able to judge feel of the day and adapt to make it a comfortable, enjoyable and memorable experience for you and all your family & friends. I’m just there to steer the things in the right direction – the day’s all about you, not me!

Let’s have a coffee (or something stronger) sometime. I’m really keen to understand how you see the big day unfolding in your mind so we can work towards making it a completely magical reality!

Tim was fantastic leading up to the wedding and also on the day! We couldn't recommend him highly enough. He made himself available throughout our planning process and was there to answer all our questions. He made sure to make the day about us and not himself! He is very attentive, easy to deal with and fantastic to work with.

Thanks for those kind words, Enida. You and Mensur did so well in the heat! Wishing you the happiest of Happy Ever Afters.

We are so glad we picked Tim to be our celebrant. We wanted the atmosphere and mood of our ceremony to reflect our personalities, Tim made this a reality! Our ceremony was better than we could have dreamed, filled with love and a lot of laughter! We are so grateful for Tim for perfectly balancing sentiment and joy. Our day was such fun, largely down to the stories that Tim told and his natural style. Tim’s guidance, especially his support making our vows special and unique means so much to us. As a massive bonus, Tim taught our combined 4 left-feet an unbelievable dance that left people saying “but I didn’t know you could dance!” It went from what would have been an awkward shuffle to a fun choreographed dance that looked much more impressive than it was difficult! We couldn’t recommend Tim highly enough.

Stop what you are doing and hire Tim as your celebrant! He did the most incredible job at our wedding and we cannot thank him enough. He helped us so much in the lead up to the day and then did such an amazing job on our wedding day. We had so many people come up to us and say they have never seen a celebrant as good as Tim. Book him in and have the best day ever like we did

Well, what can we say! Tim you made our evening absolutely perfect. From our first meeting to the handing over of the marriage certificate everything was easy. You were always quick to respond to any of my email or texts and always did so in such a friendly manner. You explained the process and the legal requirements very well and let us amend the ceremony so it was us! The friends and family all commented on you saying " you were friendly without trying to hard, you were personable and even put the nervous ones at ease" We knew we made the right decision. All you couples out there, if you need a celebrant Tim is the guy for you. Thanks again,

When we approach Tim to be our celebrate we had no hesitation due to his authenticity and charisma. However, not only did Tim deliver on what we anticipated, he was a significant factor that our wedding day was truly memorable From being being the perfect celebrant, calming influence to meticulous MC - both Bonnie and I couldn’t recommend anyway higher than Tim.

Tim was fantastic. He took great care in understanding us both as individuals and as a couple. On the day, he was able to personalise his service to provide a relaxed, natural and uniquely "us" ceremony.

Thanks for the review, Ant! What a privilege it was to be there on your special day. I know the weather was touch and go there for a while, but looking back we wouldn't have it any other way. Just a beautiful day with a great couple! All the best to you and Nat for the future.

Tim "Barney" Barnes was such an amazing celebrant! Before the wedding, Barney was such a pleasure to work with. He was so professional, responsive, and went above and beyond to help tailor the wedding to our particular needs. He made suggestions for our speeches when we got stuck; helped tailored the ceremony structure to our needs; sent us drafts of his script for our thoughts weeks in advance; and most importantly, he made the process easy and fun!! On the actual wedding day, Barney was all class - funny, professional, and charismatic. He was the perfect balance of funny & enthusiastic at the start of the ceremony, and then more serious for the formal parts of the ceremony. The whole time he was confident and reliable. We ended up getting multiple compliments all night from guest saying how awesome Barney was, and we couldn't agree more! 5 stars!!

Too kind, James! It certainly was a pleasure to be up there with you and Ellie to help you tie the knot. It really was the perfect day and you two make a legendary pair.
