Fun...Fresh...& Personal. Together we will build your ceremony to reflect your individual personalities, giving you and your guests a unique experience, and fun lasting memories.


Why settle for a stock-standard cookie-cutter ceremony when you can have FUN right from the start of your ceremony?!

Don't wait for the reception for the "party" to start, let's start it together so that you enjoy every part of the day. Your ceremony shouldn't be the part you and your guests endure, it should mark the very beginning of your celebration! Let me help you make that happen.

No matter what style of ceremony you choose to have – small and intimate or breathtakingly elaborate, I will work with you to plan “Your Wedding – Your Way”.

Organising your wedding can be stressful, I completely understand this, so from the legal paperwork through to the final presentation of your Marriage Certificate, I will streamline the ceremony arrangements with you so that you really can Breathe Easy.

As a Civil Marriage Celebrant, I can incorporate any elements of traditional, non-traditional, fun, humorous or special requests you would like to include in your ceremony, making your wedding 100% personalised to you. Whether you want include family, children, friends or pets in your service, or add a ritual such as a hand-fasting, candle or sand ceremony, I will make it happen for you. Alternatively, why not start your own family tradition or ritual?

Weekday, Elopement & Budget Wedding options available.
 
Feel free to call me for an obligation free chat, and I wish you all the very best in planning for your special day.

Questions and Answers

When should I book my celebrant?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

 As soon as possible really, or at least as soon as you know your date and venue. Good celebrants are booked well in advance, just like good photographers, videographers and venues, so you don’t want to miss out!  Don’t forget your Notice of Intended Marriage either which needs to be lodged with your celebrant no later than 1month before your wedding - it’s easy to overlook when you’re dealing with the excitement of venues, dresses, rings etc.

Is a wedding rehearsal necessary?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

It’s not completely necessary, but I recommend it, especially if you have 2 or more bridesmaids and flower girls or pageboys.  The main purpose of the rehearsal is to go through the choreography of the day - where everyone stands, practicing the entrance to your music, the spacing between bridesmaids, the traditional “hand-over” of the bride (I really don’t like calling it “giving away”), and the exit.    I normally do my rehearsals in the week leading up to the ceremony so that it’s all fresh in everyones memories, but if you can’t squeeze one it, it’s not the end of the world, I talk you through it all on the day.  

Can we write our own vows?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

Of course!!! They’re your vows, so make them full of your personality, your quirks and humour, and say what is truly important to you.    If you’re nervous about writing your own vows, don’t stress, I can help out with writing some for you or at the very least give you tips and tricks.

Do you travel?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

Absolutely. Just know that for greater distances (2 or more hours drive) I will ask for a travel fee and/or accommodation for the night before or after the ceremony (depending on your ceremony time).

Will you look after all the legal documents?

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

Most definitely. I look after everything from the lodgement of your Notice Of Intended Marriage through to the final registration of your marriage! I even register your marriage on the same day as your wedding!    If you need your Official Certificate of Marriage from Births Deaths and Marriages, I can put through the application for it on your behalf at the same time as registering your marriage.

Just WOW!! Toni is amazing! She is fun and professional and made the whole process super easy to work with her. We met Toni at a wedding expo and from the first minute we knew we wanted Toni as our celebrant. Toni has exceptional communication skills, answering all our questions and went above and beyond on the day to ensure that the ceremony set up was correct and made us feel at ease! We couldn’t have done it without her! Thank you Toni!

You're WOW!!!! We couldn't have asked for a better day or a more amazing turn-out! Thank your for your lovely review. xxx

Wow! Toni is AMAZING! After meeting her at a bridal expo, I instantly knew I needed Toni for our wedding! She was so professional, fun and energetic. All our guests are raving about the ceremony and it wasn’t a standard boring process. She kept all the boys in check and was excellent at communicating. She put together all our vows and made it all feel very personal. Thank you Toni!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Thank you Allison! I love how wonderfully your day turned out! After such a long delay, you both deserved perfect - and perfect you got! A perfect location, perfect weather and the most perfect group of friends and family around to celebrate with you! The boys were fun to work with, and you both were marvellous (and absolutely stunning!!!). Lots of Love to you both always xxx

We were absolutely thrilled to have Toni officiating our wedding this past weekend. From our first interaction with her, to our first meeting, and then her patience as we navigated the setbacks of 2020, Toni was just exceptional. She created an absolutely beautiful ceremony for us that reflected our personalities and our family, delivered with warmth, and her professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. Would absolutely recommend her to others in a heartbeat!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Woohooooo!!! We got there! Thank you Sam for such a lovely review. You all were so beautiful to work with, and what a stunning Plan X you had! I'm thrilled you and your guests loved the ceremony, you both made it so easy for me, giving me your full personalities from Day 1. I feel like part of the family now. xxx

Toni is incredible and made our ceremony exactly how we had dreamt of it!! We didn't wan't boring or stale - we wanted some fun, our guests to be involved, something different and something us! Toni made this all possible and was very helpful guiding us through it all. Toni will help you where needed, give you freedom to make it yours and overall give you an amazing ceremony. We are so grateful. Thank you Toni.

Thank you for your lovely review Dakota! I loved everything about your ceremony - from the in the dark rehearsal to your "flower dude". Thanks for just being awesome people to work with xxx

We had the pleasure of working with Toni to build out our ceremony for our small and intimate wedding. Leading up to the wedding Toni made us feel so comfortable with her calming nature, and her patience in explaining everything making us feel we could ask any silly question! She was always so responsive which I came to really appreciate (especially when planning a wedding during a pandemic). On the day itself, Toni captured the mood of our wedding perfectly. She was the perfect balance of serious, funny, casual and professional. Our guest raved about her and she was a key part in making our day amazing. If you are looking for a celebrant who feels genuine as opposed to feeling scripted, as well as someone who is reliable - Toni needs to be your pick!

Hi Lilian - such a fabulous wedding! Intimate & fun with the most supportive, crazy and awesome family and friends! Who could ask for anything more? Thank you for allowing me the honour of marrying you both! xxx

Jenny, what a lovely day we all had, great people, great music and the Botanic Gardens was the perfect backdrop for a wonderful event. Thank you for having me be a part of your day! xxxxx

Toni is amazing! We asked her to be a part of our day after meeting her at our best man's wedding & couldn't be happier with everything she did. Toni is super easy to communicate with, gave us plenty of ideas for how to customise our ceremony & was absolutely fantastic on the day. Many of our guests (both present & on the livestream) were really complimentary about the ceremony style, structure & how much it suited us as a couple. We could not recommend Toni more :)

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Steph!!! Your wedding will forever go down as one of my favourites!... Apart from the STUNNING location and awesome people, you two wacky lovebirds were a joy to work with and to be around! Much love to you always xxx

Toni was amazing! She was helpful and lovely and made our ceremony so awesome! Toni helped us to put together our ceremony and provided guidance for every step along the way - she was responsive and extremely flexible throughout the challenges of COVID. She felt like a friend marrying us and truly made our ceremony so beautiful and “us.” I highly recommend Toni for your wedding ceremony - thank you so much!

Hi Caroline... Thank you for your lovely review. Your wedding was PERFECT after all of the "fun" COVID gave us. Couldn't have had a more lovely day overall. xxx

Tony and I would like to say a huge thank you! Toni had been a delight to work with as she is so patient and helpful! From the moment we met her, we felt a sense of ease as she so knowledgable and felt assured having her assist us. She'd made this complex process of planning a ceremony, so simple. It was really a 'breathe-easy-wedding'! Furthermore, Toni was able to capture our story beautifully and helped turn our ceremony into a great memory. We received so many compliments from our guests as, they too, recognised how amazing she was!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Thank you both so much for your lovely review! I'm sure I'll get to see you again soon at another wedding. I loved working with you both and giving your the support you needed when you were both under pressure. It truly felt like a family affair and I'm now a welcome part of your families. xxx

Toni was absolutely amazing. She guided us through the whole process. We never felt overwhelmed or stressed. Even through a few hiccups along the journey, Toni kept us cool, calm and collected. The whole ceremony was beautifully done and everyone who attended said the small touches that Toni added made one of the most memorable weddings that they have ever attended! Thank you again Toni

Hi Lawrence, Thank you for your lovely review! Memorable is what I always aim to achieve, and I'm pretty sure that between the ceremony, the cocktails, the weather, your gorgeous ring-"Bear"er and your surprise exit dance, we made it completely unforgettable!!

Chris and I met Toni at an Allegro showcase event and we both knew instantly that she would be the perfect celebrant for our wedding. Firstly, she was very respectful for catering for a mixed faith marriage. Toni was so patient and helpful for all aspects of our wedding day, sharing her wisdom made the process so easy and stress free. The ceremony was perfect and all of our friends and family said how funny and enjoyable it was. We would both definitely reccomend her - 10/10. Gabby and Chris

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Thank you Gabby for your lovely review! I can't say how happy I am to have been able to marry you both, what a crazy run of a year it's been! I'm so glad your guests enjoyed the ceremony as much as I enjoyed writing it! xxx

HANDS DOWN THE MOST DEDICATED AND MAGICAL WEDDING CELEBRANT. I am a bride that has just been married last Sunday by Toni, and let me just say that I am the happiest girl alive right now. I have dreamed of my fairytale wedding since I was a little girl. And from the very first ti w j saw Toni standing in the Sydney wedding expo smiling her beautiful radiant smile. Till the moment she pronounced me married to the man of my dreams. Toni was professional, helpful, loving and Overall spectacular. Toni is more than just a celebrant. I felt she was a family member. She got to know us personally and offered guidence and structure the whole way through. I am catholic and my husband is Hindu. Toni was able to beautifully tie thm together. Thankyou Toni for making my dreams come true. You are so beautiful.

Toni did the most amazing job as a wedding celebrant! From the first time we met her, we felt so comfortable around her because of her bubbly & vibrant personality. All of our guests were so impressed by how the ceremony went so smoothly. My partner & I loved how the ceremony was so personal, romantic and heartfelt especially how she told our love story– it couldn’t have been any more perfect. We would highly recommend Toni to make your wedding day extra special. Thank you so much Toni!
