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

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

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.

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

Our experience with Toni as our celebrant was absolutely perfect! Toni had everything under control from the moment we met right up to after wedding. She arranged all of the paperwork for the legalities and also had our marriage certificate sent to our home - we didn't have to even think about it! The ceremony was also beyond perfect. All of our friends and family have told us that the ceremony was the best they have ever seen. Toni wrote the ceremony to reflect our relationship and our journey together - the way it was written, you would assume she has known us from the very beginning! I cannot thank Toni enough and highly recommend her!!

Thank you Lauren... we just scraped in your wedding before lockdowns, phew! So many laughs, from the rehearsal right through to the end of your day, and what an amazing day it was! The "ribbon-boys" were the best - who needs flower girls when you've got grown men ribbon-twirling down the aisle?!?! xxx

14 Mar 2020

Toni was truly amazing and we are so glad that she was a part of our big day! All of our guests commented that her ceremony was very “us” and loved every minute of it! I had my heart set on an outdoor ceremony but, on the day, it was raining and absolutely freezing. Toni kept us calm and bore with us down to the wire in deciding whether to move the ceremony inside - she was absolutely fantastic in getting everything organised at last minute when we decided to push ahead with the outdoor ceremony. She was also so fun and warm and kept all of us laughing despite the rain and cold!! Would definitely recommend Toni for your special day!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Thank you Lee-Anne.... definitely one to remember... waiting for that small break in the weather, then "Go...Go...Go!!!!". Quite the rush, and you've forever got a talking point about your wedding day! xxx

Toni is an amazing, down to earth and professional wedding celebrant! She is full of energy, funny and great story teller! We are super grateful to have her on our special day! Really appreciate what Toni did for us; highly recommend to have Toni on special day!

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

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!

Thank you beautiful Elena! What a fantastic day we had... even the weather put on it's finest for us. Yours was the 1st of my postponed 2020 weddings, so I'm so so happy that we finally got to make it all happen. Even with the tweaks that we had to make, the day was spectacular. xxx

14 Nov 2020

Toni was fabulous. Made our ceremony very personal and lots of fun. Toni was so easy to work with and made our day very special. We highly recommend Toni!!!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

I LOVED your wedding Susie!!! Vintage cars, vintage theme, fantastic location, chilled vibe, fabulous guests and then there was you two.... too gorgeous for words. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your day xxx

My husband and I wanted a fun, relaxed and intimate ceremony, and that's exactly what we got with Toni from Breathe Easy Weddings. Her effervescent personality was just what we were looking for from our celebrant and we highly recommend her to anyone who wants their ceremony to match the fun, energy levels of their reception party. Toni's bubbly demeanor was beautifully balanced with her calm, reassurance throughout the ceremony so that we felt confident and comfortable. She set our minds at ease and handled all the legalities for us through what could have been a challenging wedding due to the still-standing covid restrictions. Toni, we cannot thank you enough!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Thank you Laura!!! Such a special day for an extraordinary couple. I loved everything about your wedding, from the location, to the guests, to your flower crown, and especially working with you on your surprise vows! Love love loved it! xxx

We came across Toni through a friend. We didn't know what to expect but we were blown away when she blessed us on our special day. Toni's attention to detail is on the next level and made the ceremony very touching and funny at the same time. The highlight was definitely a personalise story of how we met and what we thought about each other. We also liked that she has so many templates in her arsenal and we could spend less time thinking of what to say by just using some of her beautiful templates. Would highly recommend to use Toni and you will not regret it

Thank you for your lovely review Kay! I'm so happy your friends referred me (and it was wonderful catching up with them at your wedding as well). The afternoon was stunning, as were the two of you. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of it! xxx

Toni was such an amazing celebrant. She made the ceremony fun, memorable and special. We have had many compliments from guest about Toni at the wedding. She was so helpful leading up to the wedding and helped with anything you need help with. I would recommend Toni to anyone who is getting married !!!

6 Oct 2020

We couldn't have asked for anything more with Toni and are so incredibly grateful to have had her as our celebrant. Right from our very first phone call to all the legalities after the ceremony, Toni made us feel at ease, guided and confident about the whole process. Because of Toni, our ceremony was filled with warmth, fun and her words and description of our relationship was perfectly told. Not only did we enjoy listening to Toni, our guests were impressed with how eloquent she spoke. We are also so incredibly thankful with how comfortable she made our daughter feel before, during and after the ceremony! Thank you again for making our Plan H ceremony a smash hit and a day we will remember fondly x

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

I LOVE that you got to wear your wedding dress Monica!! You looked amazing... you ALL looked amazing, and your daughter was incredible! Plan H was a windy one, but it was perfect. Thank you for having me xxx

We met Toni at an expo and are so glad we went with her as our celebrant. Toni is incredibly professional, calm, and thinks of everything! Organising a wedding during covid is difficult enough but it was made easy with Toni - she went out of her way to quickly answer any little question we had (even if late on a Saturday night), and was so flexible when we didnt know if we were going ahead with our ceremony or not due to restrictions. We also had petals to be thrown at our ceremony, and Toni made sure to save some for us to throw for our group photo as well - she is the whole package! We will always recommend Toni to anyone who is looking for a celebrant. Thanks Toni!!!

Toni was a spectacular all-round celebrant! She knows the ins and outs of weddings and with her experience, all your worries are managed. She made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. During challenging times with the pandemic Toni kept in touch with her couples and provided guidance, which definitely helped us deal with stress and anxiety. Her warm nature and sense of humour definitely helped keep the nerves at bay on the day. Toni incorporated unique elements into our wedding ceremony which made it perfectly “us”. We were so happy Toni was involved in our wedding day and we highly recommend her for your special day!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Jess, your wedding had ME all emotional - a beautiful day, a lovely location, a fantastic couple, and my first "back-to-normal" wedding for a long while...holding back my tears was challenging! All-Around exciting!! Thank you so much for having me be a part of your day! xxxxx

Toni was the best person we could ever ask for as a marriage celebrant. Initially we should be married in end of March but days before our big day the Covid restrictions kicked in. We did felt devastated but to do the right thing to postpone the date. Toni was there helping us through this uncertain time and accommodated with our changes. I absolutely in love with the story she wrote for us and her calmness had guided us through our most important day of our lives! We cannot thank her enough and your search of celebrant should look nowhere, Toni is your best choice!

Toni Elsley - Breathe Easy Weddings  

Hoorayyyyyy! We finally managed to get you two married. No virus was going to stop us - postpone us, re-arrange us twice, change everything, yes... but stop us? NO!! I promised you we'd get there, and we did. xxx
