"Literally could not have asked for a better celebrant!! Handsome devil too!" — Emma + Gary. 


I'm a Marriage Man! I love to talk love with anyone that will listen, I live in Hawthorn so when I'm not drink specialty coffees or fruity ales, I'm sitting in the gardens trying to find the perfect words to use for each of my couples ceremonies. I will never copy and paste a ceremony! In my spare time I play board games, madly propagate houseplants and have cups of tea (Or SoCo) with my mum

No! Leave all that to me.

I'll manage all the paperwork, all you need to do is show me some documents (Passport/Birth Cert ect) when i'm filling it out and I'll lodge all the paperwork with BDM for you!

I even buy every one of my couples the final Marriage Certificate rather than make you wait and buy it yourself!

50% is a booking fee taken to secure your day with me. I take that day off my calendar. (I'll never do more than one wedding a day, that day is YOURS)

The other 50% is paid 1 month before the wedding for the ceremony itself. 

I'm friends with some incredble celebrants, if disaster strikes and I can't be at your wedding, first, I'll cry. Then; I'll get one of my friends to rock up and perform the ceremony for you.

This is why I break my payment in half, so that I have something to give to my mates for their time.

(I have never had to do this and fingers crossed I never will but its better to be safe than sorry)

Not if you don't want to,

I have a Vow Pack I give to all my couples, it has about 150 different vows I have written or stolen from media, or my previous couples have be gracious enough to share with me after their wedding.

Its a great launching point if you are writing your own, its also there if you want to grab the best bits and have it all built for you!

From the minute we spoke to Lachie on the Zoom call we knew he was the celebrant for our wedding. It was like we were talking to one of our good mates. Lachie was amazing from start to finish, guiding us through the formal paperwork, helping with building our ceremony including writing it completely from scratch even making sure the small things on the day were covered. On our day, we had laughs, tears and lots of smiles (all good ones) and our guests loved the bespoke ceremony and the sand ceremony after all of our “I Do” formalities - it will be a day that we will never forget. If you’re looking for a celebrant, Lachie is your guy. We can’t recommend him enough.

Wow what a wedding! What a ceremony, we couldn't have done it without Lachlan. From his organisation throughout our early planning to the execution on the day made it so easy for us in times of stress. On the day he greeted our friends and family individually and got amounts the crowd, making them feel welcome and assisted with our vendors and made myself and my partner feel at ease. EVERYONE spoke about how wonderful our celebrant was, creating a light, funny and enjoyable ceremony retelling our love story that was unique and kept our guests engaged. With good spirit and good humour, Lachie was easy to work with, gave us plenty of information to help assist with building our ceremony and our vows and was always available for recommendations, tailoring our ceremony to us. If you're looking for a celebrant , look no further he's your guy!

Words honestly cannot express how lucky we are to have Lachlan as our celebrant! He is so amazing, down to earth, fun, very easy to work with, extremely organised and just simply perfect. Lachlan has made the process seamless and less complicated, and had put together our story eloquently! So if you are looking for a celebrant, look no further as Lachlan is the man for the role! Thanks so much Lachie for playing a big part to a great turn out for our wedding! Kim & Daniel Hogarty

Absolutely amazing! Our ceremony was everything that we ever wanted. We wanted light hearted, fun, laughter and a relaxed vibe and Lachy delivered us just this. We had great communication and worked together to create our dream ceremony. Our guests gave us so many compliments and the ceremony reflected our personalities perfectly! Thank you Lachy ☺️

He was super friendly and great with all our meetings! Helped us so much with creating a ceremony that was perfect for us! He also went above and beyond learning a Spanish phrase for our out of town guests! He was early to the venue on the day and made everyone super comfortable and our ceremony was so entertaining he got everyone laughing and enjoying themselves! Couldn’t recommend him enough!
