Let's create your perfect ceremony.

I have been a marriage celebrant for six years now and have loved every minute of it. You get to meet all kinds of different people and I feel I am laid back and adaptable to any couple’s needs.

I want your ceremony to be exactly that, yours!!! I don’t want to have to cut and paste ceremonies, every couple and every love story is unique, and I endeavour to bring that out in your ceremony.

I’m also about having fun, so as long as the legal aspects are covered, I am happy to indulge in whatever plans you have for your ceremony.

Choosing a celebrant who will provide the opportunity for you to discover your style and express your wishes, resulting in a memorable wedding day, is a giant leap towards your dreams being realised.

I would love to hear from you


Being a marriage celebrant is a passion, it's not a full time job though, I work in the construction industry selling fasteners. I'm also in a wedding band called The Pre Nups. I love travelling with my wife and friends.

Yes, I have my own PA system and stand, it can be used for music during the ceremony. 

Each ceremony is unique, and varies in length. It all depends on what you want included in your ceremony, Longes ceremony I have done has been 26 minutes, whilst the shortest has been 4 minutes. Average length is usually about 20 minutes 

Honestly, it all depends on the couples. Some want to meet 5-6 times before the ceremony (including rehearsal) some want to meet once or twice. I am flexible with meeting couples as I understand it's part of the job and I'm here to make things easier on you both. 

No deposit is required, and payment is due one week before your ceremony.

My fee is $850 and it includes meeting with you, planning and personallising your ceremony. Holding a reharsal, handling of all legal documents and of course officiating on your big day.

Josh officiated our winter wedding in July. Although we have spent 23 years together, we wanted something special to celebrate with our loved ones. Josh delivered a very warm and down to earth ceremony, just as we had hoped for! So many guests complimented us on our choice of celebrant as he suited us in every way! Find it hard to believe when Josh says he may not be everyone's cup of tea. He is a wonderful celebrant.

Josh was just so relaxed and fun. We loved every minute having Josh part of our day. All our guest loved him too. He did so well and so professional working up against our little angel 2year old who wanted the stage on the day.

Josh was our celebrant for our recent wedding and we can't recommend him enough! Our day was just perfect and Josh helped make our ceremony really special and memorable. He made it personal, funny and it went for the perfect amount of time. He stuck with us for two years whilst we got through COVID postponing and uncertainty. Alex and I had no idea what we were getting into, but Josh helped make it all nice and easy. He was also fantastic in the lead up to our big day. Thanks so much Josh!

I saw Josh at a wedding many many years ago and knew he would be the celebrant I'd like to use on my own special day, and surely enough I was lucky enough to. He made everything so easy, explaining every step, and calming us down at any stage it was needed. Josh is professional, friendly and just an all round great guy! Thank you for being apart of and making our day

What more can you say about Josh other than simply amazing. He took the time and puts in the effort to get to know us as a couple and learn about our love story. This allowed Josh to deliver a ceremony that was so full of love and happiness, he told our story so unbelievably amazing and our ceremony was just beautiful thanks to Josh!

Is it OK to ask a celebrant to wear a costume at our wedding?

Hello! I've read some responses to celebrants dressing in a matching style etc. Is it rude to ask if they wouldn't mind wearing a costume? I've read somewhere a couple got married by batman and then the obvious Elvis option.. I like the idea of an iconic character and think it would be something to remember but wouldn't want to offend anyone or make it a bad experience. TIA

Josh Connelly Civil Celebrant

Of course it is! Whilst I'm up to wear anything, covid hasn't been kind so I draw the line at figure hugging outfits! 3 year ago me would pass for Frank N Furter. 2021 me would pass for elvis in his later days 

Do any modern couples still include the opportunity to object during a wedding ceremony?

Curious about this and how it would be done well.

Josh Connelly Civil Celebrant

No never have I ever done this, I have never offered this nor has any couple ever asked for this.
