July 2022

My Wife Stephanie and I had the extreme privilege to have Sian as our celebrant last weekend. Where to begin… Sian is absolutely a fantastic and beautiful soul who brings such and amazing feel and energy to her the ceremony, she has plenty of options in terms of whether you want traditional or like us a more unique style, Sian made the lead up very easy and took care of us prior and on the wedding day, Sian has a very calming yet exciting persona that lets you just go with the flow and definitely looked after us during our wedding, fun, bubbly, professional but not overly serious/intense, charismatic in her approach and can captivate everyone instantly, can not recommend Sian enough! So stop reading my review and go book her I promise you won’t regret it! Thank you again Sian for making our day perfect!

Matt! Thank you so much for your kind words 🥰 Your day was spectacular and the two of you are just a delight. I am so happy I got to be your Celebrant and be there for those amazing moments. Big love to you both (and the little one!) 💕💕💕

March 2022

It really is hard to put into words the level of appreciation we have for Sian. She went above and beyond at every point of our journey, from walking us through all the formalities of the paperwork right through to helping us with last minute decorations! She performed our ceremony beautifully putting us both at ease and making it all about us! She truly is passionate about people which is why I would recommend her to anyone. She made our day so very special and for that I can not thank her enough!

November 2021

Sian was beyond amazing. Words cannot describe the love my partner and I have for Sian and everything she did for us. She was so easy to talk to, easy to organise plans and so amazing during the hard Melbourne COVID times. You cannot find a better celebrant, someone who genuinely cares about the couples and loves what she does. Not that I ever plan on getting married again, but if I do I'm booking Sian again!!!

December 2023

Sian was everything we wanted in a marriage celebrant. 💕 Down-to-earth, warm and organized. She helped write and craft a ceremony that sounded just like us. She gave us plenty of guidance on how to write our vows. Our day was just perfect and Sian was an integral part of making it so special.

Natalie G.

Sian Lavater Celebrant - I Do Colourful Celebrations

Oh Nat! I so so LOVE that you loved your ceremony as much as I did writing it 💕 Seeing you and Terry emerge from the gardens was a true 'hold your breath moment' for your whole entourage and I still remember the two of you looking at each other as you came over the rise. Absolutely gorgeous moment! Thank you for choosing me to be part of your special day. It meant so much! Big love 💕💕💕

November 2023

Sian is absolutely amazing! Extremely professional, friendly, and thorough in her work to such a degree I did not have to worry about a single thing regarding our ceremony. She makes herself available for any any all questions throughout the planning process and made everything so stress-free. Can't recommend highly enough!

Get Expert Advice

Is there a traditional left and right side for the bride's family and groom's family?

Does the bride's side traditionally sit on the left or the right at the ceremony?

Sian Lavater Celebrant - I Do Colourful Celebrations

While traditionally, the groom stands to the right of the altar as you look from the guest's view, there is absolutely no right or wrong, you can do whatever you like! ??

Can we have our wedding before legally getting married?

Is it possible to have a wedding without signing anything legally and then go to the registry with witnesses a few months later to sign the marriage documents? My fiance is in a visa process and has been advised not to change his marriage status until he receives his permanent residency. However, we want to have our wedding with family and friends before we move away later this year and can't guarantee he'll receive the residency in time.

Sian Lavater Celebrant - I Do Colourful Celebrations

You can absolutely have a celebration that looks, feels, smells and sounds like a wedding to all of your guests, minus the legal jargon. This is generally referred to as a commitment ceremony - you can even have a ring exchange! This leaves you free to do the legal words, paperwork and signing at another time - or why not the other way around? Do your legal first, then have the party when it suits knowing you're already hitched! ??

Guide to writing our own vows

We're wondering if there are some guidelines or where we can start to write our own vows? Like, an easy step by step process. Knowing which parts have to be said and which parts we can change/make our own. Thanks!

Sian Lavater Celebrant - I Do Colourful Celebrations

Every single one of my couples, regardless of the package they choose, has access to a vow structure that is super easy to follow. Both parties then can send their vows to me directly so I can compare them for length and tone. This keeps your vows a surprise for your partner. On your big day, I'll have them printed, put onto card and hand them to you at exactly the right time so you don't have to carry them around with you ??
