With over 20 years experience, I am a modern celebrant who is relaxed and easy going.
Call me now for a chat about your ceremony!
With more than 20 years experience as an authorised civil marriage celebrant, I’ve performed more than 2,000 ceremonies.
Many on land, some on ships, the first one on the Harbour Bridge and the first Elvis wedding in Australia (November 1999). Before there were so many celebrants to select from, I was the "go-to guy" that had a reputation for flexability. Whatever people wanted, I did my best to make it happen when no other celebrant could or would.
My aim is to make sure that you have the ceremony you want — formal or informal, sophisticated or simple. I can give you suggestions from a range of traditional ceremonies or I can tailor an individual and unique ceremony for you. I also perform ceremonies with a particular theme. Together we can create one that is right for you.
Based in Sydney, I can give you advice about locations — on land or on Sydney Harbour, because I am also a Ship Captain.
A ceremony marks and celebrates a very significant event in your life, so I urge you to find the civil celebrant that you feel most comfortable and happy with, even if it isn't me. It's your day.
Please feel free to contact me for an obligation-free meeting to discuss the ceremony you are planning.
We could not have had a better celebrant. The ceremony went perfectly joining humor and emotion. I wish for every future bride and groom to find you to have the best day of their life ! Thank you Russell !
Russell was simply perfect ! We could not have had a better ceremony. It was emotional as well as funny exactly at the right time.
If you are looking for the perfect celebrant, you have to work with Russell !
Thank you so much to have been part of our day !
Russell made us feel very relaxed which really allowed us to enjoy the moment. We have had many positive comments from our guests on the way he performed the ceremony in a laid back, humorous yet intimate manner which was exactly how we had imagined it to be.
