I like to take time with every couple, encourage you to have what you want in your ceremony, as I emphasize it is your big day.

Every wedding is individual and my intention is to make your day extra special, as a wedding is about people, in particular the bride and groom. My aim is to provide a happy and relaxed ceremony, with some humour. I strive to offer my brides and grooms excellence in service and a beautiful wedding ceremony lacking in nothing at the most affordable price possible.

My usual process is to meet with you and your fiance either at my house or your home.

*Second interview and signing of Declarations, 2 weeks prior to wedding day
*Rehearsal if required
*Assist in writing and arranging your Marriage Ceremony
*Prepare and lodge all legal documentation

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What paperwork do we need to bring along when we see you?

You need ‘original’ documents when lodging the Notice of Intended Marriage, including: Birth Certificate or extract of entry of birth showing place and date of birth or passport . If you are a resident/citizen of a country outside of Australia and you legitimately cannot obtain your Birth Certificate from your country of origin, you are required to provide a Passport. A Certificate of Divorce or a Certificate of Nullity, if previously married. A Certificate of Death, if previous spouse is deceased. Change of Name Certificate if a name has been changed from that on your birth certificate.

How long does a Ceremony take?

Usually 20 – 30 minutes.

Where can we hold the ceremony?

- beaches

- your home

- botanical gardens

- hotels and restaurants

- chapels

- on a bridge

Can we write our own vows?

You most certainly can write your own vows. However, there are several requirements to keep in mind. The Marriage Act requires that you include some minimum requirements: 1. You must use the words “spouse” or “husband” and “wife” in the marriage vows. “Partner” and other terms are not permitted under the Marriage Act of 1961. 2. You must use your ‘full’ names at least once in the ceremony. 3. The following phase must be used – “I call upon the persons here present to witness that I (full name) take you (full name) to be my lawfully wedded husband/wife.

Do we have to remember our vows?

No, you don’t have to remember your vows, unless of course you really want to or, I can lead you through your vows and you can repeat them line by line after me. The choice is yours.

Paul was awesome! I would 100% recommend him, he's a real nice guy, was always in contact and organised, arranged and even downloaded our music for us and made us feel relaxed on the day. Couldnt have asked for a smoother, more perfect ceremony! Thanks!

Great people Mark and Sandra and a terrific day

Paul was fantastic, was there every step of the way to ensure that there was no confusion or uncertainty. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted, and love that he also provides a PA system so didn't have to stress about that. Also arranged for a copy of our certificate from the registry to be sent to us so was there when we got back from our honeymoon - an unexpected and very much appreciated touch.

Paul was just so funny! I've known him for quite a long time, and he was fantastic! During the ceremony he was so great, everyone loved him and how great he was at the ceremony. He stayed on for a bit too and introduced speeches at our reception afterwards.

Thank you so very much for making our ceremony so special. You made us and our bridal party feel so at ease and guided us through it beautifully. Paul has a relaxed yet professional manner, was friendly and had a great sense of humour. All the required paperwork was taken care of, and we received our legal documents speedily and with no issues. Thanks again, Paul!

Paul was fantastic, he drove about an hour to see us every time and if we needed anything he was always there. On the day, he provided his own materials where he needed to, interacted with the crowd, and was a very nice person in general which showed in his ceremony. He was very reasonable in his pricing, and we got such good quality service for what we paid.

Paul was helpful, we met beforehand and I was quite straightforward and easy with what I needed as our wedding was in Bali, and we just needed paperwork done, which he did without a problem.

10 Nov 2018

He definitely knew what he was doing, he had a lot of experience and very friendly. He came to us and was very flexible, we didn't have to go to him. Really happy with the ceremony.

Paul was very sweet and so fun to work with. I wanted a no-fuss ceremony that was easy going and lighthearted, he completely tailored everything to our requests and it was perfect. He was so easy to deal with and I didn't have to worry about any of the complicated paperwork, he did everything for us...we just had to sign on the dotted line! Paul was always available to chat and we chatted on several occasions leading up to the day including a rehearsal. If you want a celebrant that feels like one of the family, I recommend Paul.

15 Sep 2018

Paul was a fantastic celebrant. Made our day much more relaxed and helped with the nervous of being infront of so many people. A fun ceremony with a good few laughs. Can't recommend enough.

15 Sep 2018

Really good! Really helpful. Paul put a few jokes here and there was light heated nature to the ceremony he did for us to the day which is what we wanted. All our guest though the ceremony was great. Highly recommend!

21 Jul 2018

We had two meetings with Paul, an early meeting to book our Wedding and a meeting the week before the Wedding to finalise details. Paul was professional, organised, very thorough and extremely personable. He took us through all the legal requirements of the Wedding and took time to find out what we wanted as a couple and how he could personalise our Wedding. On the day, Paul was on time and organised. He quickly made everyone comfortable and took charge of getting everyone settled. His conduct of the Ceremony was professional, personable and very relaxing and amenable. He quickly bonded with our guests and took distractions in his stride, adding some humour and fun into our Ceremony. He was available for photographs and ensured we had some fabulous photo opportunities. We had a wonderful, relaxed Wedding with Paul which was exactly what we wanted. I can't recommend him more highly. He made our Wedding Ceremony really special. Thank you Paul!
