OVERVIEW

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. Wedding Ceremonies Without The Boring Bits


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.

About

Hi there! I'm a "cool Mum", or so my kids used to say when they were younger, nowadays I'm "silly", "funny", "fun" and I "dress nice", so I still think that makes me "cool". I love a warm day, good food, a splash of wine and great company. I especially love days when I can kick back with my family, which includes my fur-babies - and no, I'm not a dog or a cat person, I'm both! As for being a celebrant, I love everything about it! Weddings, fun, frocks, and a party!! What's not to love?

FAQ

 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.

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.  

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.

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).

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.

Toni was by far the best celebrant we could have asked for. From the initial meeting through to the execution on the day, we could not have had a better person to officiate our ceremony! She stated to us initially that she doesn’t like to make any two ceremonies the same, and to tailor every couple’s ceremony to them. We can unequivocally confirm this to be true. The amount of comments we received from our family and friends about how impressive Toni was came at no surprise to us. Quite simply, if you’re looking for a marriage celebrant to help make your special day easy-going, with minimal stress, then you’re best to look no further than Toni.

Hi Ryan! Thank you for your kind words. I'm so happy that you and your guests enjoyed your ceremony... it makes my job easy when I have wonderful couples like you to work with! xxx

Toni was sensational. We had one of the wettest days in Sydney and our "wet weather plan" wasn't such a good plan. Toni moved mountains (literally last minute) to ensure our day was as smooth as possible. She made our ceremony so fun, meaningful, special and wonderful that we didn't even realise the flash floods and last minute change of venue. We have received nothing but positive feedback on Toni with family and friends saying "Toni was sensational", "Who was that celebrant, she was one of the best I've seen..." and "Where did you find Toni, she was so good!" Feeling well and truly blessed, that despite all of out other plans turning chaotic, we had the calm in Toni. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

With everything we went through, I'm so happy that I had the honour of being the person to help you and your beautiful family through it all. I truly feel like part of your family now xxx

Toni was our BEST wedding vendor! We met through a close friend's wedding and she blew us away. We knew we had to have her marry us. Her persona and professionalism carried our ceremony from the very beginning, making sure every thought and process went smooth all the while making it stress free, fun, and most importantly such a VIBE. She holds herself to a high standard however she is so bubbly! Everyone loved her, we even had one of our guests mention she wants Toni to be her celebrant. Toni has a certain flair and finesse which is unmatched. We knew we needed someone who could engage with the audience, the bridal party & us as as couple and Toni ticked all the boxes. Her experience definitely shows all the while making sure the focus was on us as a couple. Toni we have nothing but love for you!

Toni did so much work to make sure our wedding was personalized to us and had some great unique ideas for our ceremony. She showed how experienced and professional she is by discreetly guiding us through our ceremony to make us feel like we had done it all before! She is warm and kind and sooo organized. She is such a great speaker. We cannot recommend her enough and will be telling our family to contact her when the time comes :)

Toni was an amazing celebrant - cannot recommend highly enough. She is very emotionally intelligent, easy to talk to, took time to understand our unique relationship and easy to work with as we planned our ceremony. On the day a few hiccups occurred during the ceremony which she responded to with calmness, grace and good humour. She made our day fabulous.

do you think celebrants would be up for flying to officiate a destination wedding?

would i have to pay for their flights accommodation food etc

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings

A destination wedding is always fun! Many of us who are prepared to travel will do them. As everyone else has said, the cost of travel & accommodation would need to be discussed & factored in to the fees, and yes, for it to be an official marriage the destination would need to be within Australia.

It's a terrific idea to have a celebrant that you have made the right connection with to come along to your destination, rather than use someone you haven't necessarily met at the venue. I believe that that connection is so important for any wedding, so when you've found the right person.... stick with them!
