Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What does my fee include?

All legal paperwork required for marriage registration within Australia.


Your Marriage Certificate all signed and sealed on the day of your wedding.


The best, fun and bespoke delivery of your personal ceremony, especially written for you.


All meetings required to get to know each other and get you all set for the big day (normally 2 meetings).

Swift communication via phone and email and professional, cordless and battery powered sound equipment.

What are your qualifications?

I am a certified Civil Marriage Celebrant and registered with the Attorney Generals Department.

As a celebrant I also complete annual professional development trainings and stay on top of new regulations, changes and any trends that influence the Australian wedding industry.

I am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants (AFCC) and must ahere to their professional 'Code of Ethics'. I attend trainings and professional networking events + hold a professional Indemnity & Broadform Liability Insurance. 

In terms of the writing and performance of your ceremony I hold a Bachelor of Arts and have 15+ years of experience performing in front of an audience as an actor/presenter/performer both live theatre and for television.

Just recently I was awarded the 'Certificate of Excellence' by Easy Weddings for only 5 Star ratings in 2018. 

What paperwork is needed?

I will be responsible for all paperwork and guide you through the process.

What we need when we first meet is your passports or birth certificates, drivers licences and if you've been married before, your divorce papers or other certificates that I will explain. I need to sight the originals and also be sent photocopies/scans of all documents (divorce papers). 

I look after the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) and this form must be completed at the latest 1 month before your wedding date.

I complete & submit  the Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage (to be filled in as close to the wedding date as possible ie. at the rehearsal) and you'll receive the Official Marriage Certificate from me (presented on the day). 

What I always get asked is why I became a marriage celebrant?

I love people, simple.

I love meeting people from all walks of life and hearing their unique stories and what makes them love each other.

It’s such a privilege and honour for me to bring it all together on the day and really make your love shine. Sounds kitschy but that’s really what it’s all about - Facilitating your love and guiding you through all the legalities. I really enjoy bringing it all together and finding the ‘element’ that makes your relationship special. 

I also have a background as an actor/singer/presenter so it’s natural for me being up there in front of all your family and friends, leading the ceremony and painting a picture, bringing your story to life. 

Initially I started MC-ing friends weddings and always loved the vibe of them so it was a natural progression for me to become a celebrant. 

I have now married well over 50 couples and find it such a privilege to work with so many wonderful couples.

With Marriage Equality I'm super excited for same sex couples to finally be able to tie the knot. 

What equipment are you able to bring?

I use only the best brand sound equipment and will bring my battery powered speaker with cordless microphone.

The speaker is super powerful so we can use it for your music as well (walk down the aisle etc).

I normally operate the speaker myself via my watch or a friend/family member of yours can.

We loved having Andy as our celebrant! From the very first time we met with Andy to discuss the wedding until our interactions with him post wedding - everything went smoothly and was so....fun and pleasant! Andy was very organised, and took great care to get to know us as a couple before the ceremony. He was also proactive (e.g. bringing interesting ideas to the table) and responsive to our needs. He made us feel like our wedding was the most important event he had ever planned, and we could not have been more pleased with the beautiful heartfelt ceremony he delivered. It felt very personal, as if he has known us as a couple for years!  Thank you Andy!

Yay - Hey Penelope 🥳 thank you so much! Loved getting to know you both and can't wait for more catch ups and be part of your journey. We speak soon. Much love, Andy 😊

Andy has been incredible throughout this whole process. He guided us through the paperwork, the ceremony and really helped me when I was stuck on writing my vows. He made everyone's day by his enthusiasism. He was incredible throughout the night and I really appreciate everything he did to make our wedding spectacular!

Married by Andy  

🥳 Thank you Rob and Jasmin!!! What a great wedding it was, thank you for having me as your celebrant and MC. We rocked (from our chairs)... I'll see you soon. Much love, Andy

8 Aug 2020

Andy was our celebrant, our MC and most importantly is now a dear friend. He was with us, every step of the way, so lovely, kind and understanding. Andy went above and beyond to create a magical day for us. He brings such warmth and love to everything he does and I recommend him with my entire being for your event. Important to note, Andy was faced with the challenge of bringing high postivite energy to our covid wedding as it was during the pandemic. He NAILED IT! We were under such pressure from the venue and the restrictions, however, Andy brought life back into our wedding and for this I'm truly thankful. God bless you Andy and thank you so so much.

My husband and I would like to thank Andy for making our special day so unforgettable! The ceremony he wrote for us was so personal, fun, witty and filled with so much positivity that we couldn’t hold our happy tears on the day! Furthermore , Andy was so patient with us and guided us through the whole process! Strongly recommended!

Married by Andy  

Hey Hey Nadia 🥰 Thank you for your beautiful message. Gosh, what a gorgeous day it was ☀️ and celebrating with you all so special 🛥! Thank you again for having me as your celebrant. Much love to you both xx

I couldn’t have imagined getting married without Andy. He made the whole process simple, and not stressful. Knowing that he was available for any questions or concerns we had completely put my mind at ease. I’ll be forever thinking of the beautifully sweet words he put together for our ceremony. A genuine person, a kind heart, the best celebrant we could have asked for.

Married by Andy  

Thank you Michaela 🥰 Such a pleasure being your celebrant and getting to know you both. We speak soon. Much love 💓

If you're looking for a proffesional, approachable & multi-talented celebrant or MC that can create just the perfect atmosphere for your event whilst possessing the most charismatic charms & positive vibes to keep you and your guests engaged and entertained throughout the duration of your event: look no further than "Married by Andy" Andy Rohner really knows how to bring your vision to life! Andy's prompt comunication skills really fast tracked the whole preparations. With his help we were able to create the wedding of our dreams within 2months. Prompt! Efficient! Client intimacy! Top quality service! Cost effective & Excellent value for money are few of the things that come to mind when i think about my experience with "Married by Andy!" He arranged all paper work which made it so convenient for us, helped us construct our program run sheet, gave us the confident to write our own personal intimate vows which he had proffesionally laminated & printed on a palm card so we can keep as a reminder of the promises we made to each other! I have no hesitation recommending Andy to our friends and families in the Entertainment, Hospitality & Logistics Industries! Cant thank you enough for the outstanding top quality service!

🥰 Thank you Alex, what an amazing wedding celebration it was!!! So much fun to be there with your family and friends. Loved all the entertainment and dancing. You boys rock that's for sure :) Much love, Andy

18 Jan 2020

Andy was the first and only celebrant we met, and we are so glad we chose him! He was so easy to work with, guided us through the process with no stress and even gave great advice on our vows. Andy is so friendly, confident and we felt safe in his hands throughout the whole process. Thoroughly recommend him if you are yet to choose your celebrant - he won’t disappoint!

Married by Andy  

Thank you Cassie, such beautiful words thank you so much 🥰 I loved getting to know you both and being there with you. Much love, Andy

Andy is just an absolute gem! He made us feel so at ease the entire time. He was professional yet personal, and made the ceremony so unique and special to us. We also had him as our MC for the night and he made sure everything was running smoothly. Our guests loved the ceremony and the vibe he brought. We wanted a certain vibe from the beginning to the end, and he made it perfect. We couldn't fault him and would/will recommend him to everyone!

Married by Andy  

Bryaaaar 🥳, you two have been amazing!!! I loved meeting all your family and (crazy) friends and gosh what a great night it was. Thank you again for having me. It was such a pleasure being your celebrant and MC and seeing you walk down the aisle with your dad (love his jacket btw) and Robs face - priceless 🥰 Let's do brunch soon down at the Marina xx

1 Sep 2019

Andy was the celebrant and MC at our wedding at the Grounds of Alexandria. Me and my partner are both busy people and living in Brisbane and planning a Sydney wedding made our time constraints of meeting much more difficult but this ease of communication continued throughout the process with our first meeting in Sydney, finalising our vows and ceremony, our second meeting to run through the ceremony and most importantly on the day. He guided us perfectly to create the perfect ceremony which was so unique to our personalities, giving us advice on things we would not have thought to consider. Everything ran so smoothy throughout the ceremony and during the reception where again we appreciate him keeping us on time so that we could make the most of the night once the formal events were over so seamlessly. Our guests loved him! Would recommend!

Thank you Krish 🥰 what a wedding! Thank you so much for having me as your celebrant and MC 🥳 So amazing to be there with you and meet all your family and friends. Much love, Andy

25 Aug 2019

Andy was amazing in the way that helped us design our ceremony. He made things simple and easy for us in what could have been a stressful time. Andy explained the steps we had to cover off easily and clearly and helped us plan well ahead... he is just amazing at how he kept us both calm throughout the whole process, and especially on the day. The way that he crafted the narrative of our relationship into the ceremony was fantastic and really made the day special for the both of us. Thank you so much Andy for helping make this day memorable for the both of us, we couldn't have ask for anything more. Luke & Warren xxxx

Married by Andy  

Hello Warren & Luke, thank you so much. Loved meeting the two of you, getting to know you and your story. Really glad Janine recommended me initially 😊 All my love to you both, Andy

10 Aug 2019

Andy thank you so much for being our celebrant, you were amazing. Colin and I are so happy with everything you put together and we will always be thankful for it. At the reception everyone was raving about you and asked how long we have known you for, they thought you were either a relative or a good friend of ours! You set the right tone for our ceremony which carried on through to the reception! Thanks again!

Married by Andy  

Thank you gentleman!!! It was so special to be your celebrant and bringing your story to life Thank you again for choosing me and entrusting me with your ceremony. 🥰 We kicked it off alright 🥳 hehe. Much love always, Andy 😘 (will see you at SW hehe)

3 Aug 2019

We found Andy on easyweddings.com.au and he was the first and only celebrant we reached out to. Upon first contact, Andy was so friendly, fun and his speedy responses about the process put us at ease. Andy met us in person twice before the big day, explained the steps we had to cover off easily and clearly and helped us plan and personalise our ceremony well ahead. On the big day, despite a late ceremony start which reduced the allowed time to complete our ceremony, Andy remained calm, acted intuitively and was flexible to deliver a brief version of his script which was still personalised, fun and engaging with all. We highly recommend Andy. He will look after you and personalise the ceremony how you like. Save time and effort looking around for your celebrant and choose Andy. Thanks Andy!

Married by Andy  

Thank you so much Susan. ☺️ I loved seeing you walk down the aisle, you looked absolutely stunning and I know Simon felt the same. Thank you for sending through the pics, they capture the moments so perfectly - they are absolutely beautiful ☀️ I’m glad the late guests found the venue with only a 15 min delay and we could kick off the proceedings. Much love and all the best to you two 😘 Andy

3 Aug 2019

Andy is an absolute dream to work with. He is charming and kept our guests entertained throughout the ceremony. His personalised ceremonies really gave our wedding day that special love and magic. Highly recommend him to anyone!

Married by Andy  

Hi Sharon, thank you so much for the beautiful review 😍 Love and Magic 👍🧚🏻‍♂️✨ It was so special to hear your story and create something beautiful for you two. Thank you again for choosing me. Much love, Andy 😘

Thank you to Andy for organising our marriage without any problems despite the long distance (Austria-Australia). According to our wishes we had a very private ceremony at Bradley´s Head in Sydney without any audience. Because of the long distance and because we never where there before, Andy already advised us in advance and checked up the choosen location (even if it is possible to get married there). He not only provided german-speaking witnesses, but also helped us a lot with the whole legal stuff (including authentication and distribution of the marriage certificate to Austria). It was possible to discuss final details at Andy’s place on the day before the wedding. The ceremony itself was personal and matched our wishes. You notice that Andy is a celebrant who does „his“ weddings wholeheartedly. Thank you again for everything! T&C

Married by Andy  

Thank you so much C&T for the beautiful review 🥰🥳 It was my absolute pleasure to organise your dream wedding away from it all but then right in the heart of beautiful Sydney. The view and all was just stunning and I’m still amazed you both learned your vows by heart 💓👌 Much love, Andy

8 Jun 2019

Andy came highly recommended to us by a friend who had met him at another wedding. she said he was the best celebrant she had even seen. he was charming, funny, engaged with everyone, and truly made the ceremony special. so, of course, after hearing all of that I had to contact him myself. it was honestly the best decision we made. Andy, you listened to our every word and truly incaputlated everything we wanted in our wedding. You made our guests laugh and cry and went above and beyond on our special day. You transitioned into the role of celebrant then MC so naturally and we cannot ever thank you enough. You looked out for josh and I the whole night and really made us feel so special. We thank you andy so so much, our day would not have been the same with out. Love always, mel and josh xxxx

Married by Andy  

Thank you so much Mel and Josh 😍 Gosh lets do it all again haha it was such a good evening and so much great dancing 💃Thank you from the bottom of my heart for having me as your celebrant and MC. It was such a privilege.. Much love, always xa
