Welcome to Married by Andy. 

I’m here to help you create your dream wedding.

Whether it's a fun, personal, heartfelt or more creative style of wedding that you're looking for, I am here to guide you through the process, legal aspects and make planning your special day effortless. 

Creating dream weddings is a skill. I draw upon my many years of experience in the corporate world as an MC, and events management roles combined with a passion for public speaking, an eye for detail and a little flair. 

I love meeting couples and unearthing your shared stories, heartfelt moments and your love for one another.

Throughout the preparations and on your wedding day, I bring a friendly mix of experience, warmth and life to make your day memorable for you and your guests. 

The best way to get started is to contact me here so you can ask any questions you may have, make special requests and get to know your wedding celebrant in person or over Facetime/ Skype and start this exciting journey.

If you need a wedding MC, look no further. Enjoy the peace of mind knowing that you and your guests will have a fun-filled reception with a professional MC and event manager on the task.

Looking forward to getting to know you. 

Much love, Andy ♡

Questions and Answers

What does my fee include?

Married by Andy

All legal paperwork required for marriage registration within Australia.


Your Marriage Certificate all signed and sealed on the day of your wedding.


The best, fun and bespoke delivery of your personal ceremony, especially written for you.


All meetings required to get to know each other and get you all set for the big day (normally 2 meetings).

Swift communication via phone and email and professional, cordless and battery powered sound equipment.

What are your qualifications?

Married by Andy

I am a certified Civil Marriage Celebrant and registered with the Attorney Generals Department.

As a celebrant I also complete annual professional development trainings and stay on top of new regulations, changes and any trends that influence the Australian wedding industry.

I am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants (AFCC) and must ahere to their professional 'Code of Ethics'. I attend trainings and professional networking events + hold a professional Indemnity & Broadform Liability Insurance. 

In terms of the writing and performance of your ceremony I hold a Bachelor of Arts and have 15+ years of experience performing in front of an audience as an actor/presenter/performer both live theatre and for television.

Just recently I was awarded the 'Certificate of Excellence' by Easy Weddings for only 5 Star ratings in 2018. 

What paperwork is needed?

Married by Andy

I will be responsible for all paperwork and guide you through the process.

What we need when we first meet is your passports or birth certificates, drivers licences and if you've been married before, your divorce papers or other certificates that I will explain. I need to sight the originals and also be sent photocopies/scans of all documents (divorce papers). 

I look after the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) and this form must be completed at the latest 1 month before your wedding date.

I complete & submit  the Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage (to be filled in as close to the wedding date as possible ie. at the rehearsal) and you'll receive the Official Marriage Certificate from me (presented on the day). 

What I always get asked is why I became a marriage celebrant?

Married by Andy

I love people, simple.

I love meeting people from all walks of life and hearing their unique stories and what makes them love each other.

It’s such a privilege and honour for me to bring it all together on the day and really make your love shine. Sounds kitschy but that’s really what it’s all about - Facilitating your love and guiding you through all the legalities. I really enjoy bringing it all together and finding the ‘element’ that makes your relationship special. 

I also have a background as an actor/singer/presenter so it’s natural for me being up there in front of all your family and friends, leading the ceremony and painting a picture, bringing your story to life. 

Initially I started MC-ing friends weddings and always loved the vibe of them so it was a natural progression for me to become a celebrant. 

I have now married well over 50 couples and find it such a privilege to work with so many wonderful couples.

With Marriage Equality I'm super excited for same sex couples to finally be able to tie the knot. 

What equipment are you able to bring?

Married by Andy

I use only the best brand sound equipment and will bring my battery powered speaker with cordless microphone.

The speaker is super powerful so we can use it for your music as well (walk down the aisle etc).

I normally operate the speaker myself via my watch or a friend/family member of yours can.

ANDY IS AMAZING! We cannot thank him enough for making our wedding so magical! He really has this talent for putting you at ease, with his positive energy and beautiful smile! The whole process from initial meeting to the wedding day was so smooth and Andy really does think of every little detail which is amazing and reassuring. Also despite torrential rain and wind during the ceremony, Andy had us all laughing and smiling with his beautiful and personalized monologue of our love story. Andy truly is a ROCKSTAR!

Jess and Luke 🥰 Wow, thank you so much!!! It was so lovely and beautiful working with you and hearing your story/ putting it on paper and bringing the magic to life. What fun 🥳 it was such an incredible day. Love thinking back on that trip. All the best to you both, thank you gain and - Much love, Andy

Andy was our celebrant, our MC and most importantly is now a dear friend. He was with us, every step of the way, so lovely, kind and understanding. Andy went above and beyond to create a magical day for us. He brings such warmth and love to everything he does and I recommend him with my entire being for your event. Important to note, Andy was faced with the challenge of bringing high postivite energy to our covid wedding as it was during the pandemic. He NAILED IT! We were under such pressure from the venue and the restrictions, however, Andy brought life back into our wedding and for this I'm truly thankful. God bless you Andy and thank you so so much.

Married by Andy

Hey James, Yassss - 🥳🥂 you're a married man now 😎 What an incredible day it was and Arden and you looked amazing and so happy. We made it in the end. Thx for the review mate. Much love and see you around.

17 Apr 2021

Andy was an *awesome* wedding celebrant. We even had some guests say they wanted to get married just to have Andy as their celebrant! He was super supportive as we moved our date multiple times due to covid. He was energetic, entertaining and passionate on the night and our guests loved him as much as we did. We appreciated that he ran through the ceremony with us beforehand to ensure we were happy with what he had written.

Married by Andy  

Thank you so much Amy 🥰 Let's get your guests there hitched as well 😉 Awww so fun and thank for sharing. Was amazing being your celebrant and gosh yeah we've been through a few changes and updates. At last, we've made it and it was a stunning ceremony at the Boathouse. All the best, I'm sure we run into each other some time soon. Much love, Andy

10 Apr 2021

We had Andy as our celebrant and MC and we couldn't be happier. Andy really tailored our ceremony to us, making it a fun and personable experience for us and our guests. The man really has a way with words, he made half our guests cry (in a good way)! Couldn't recommend him enough.

Married by Andy  

Hey Lachlan!!! Awww thank you so much. Love reading this 🥰 You guys rock and it was so much fun seeing you all dance FINALLY!!! Thank you again for having me as your celebrant and MC - Cheers to the newlyweds 🥂 Much love always, Andy

Thank you so much for being our Celebrant for our Wedding Day. You did the most fantastic job and you have made us both feel at easy along our wedding journey. It was truly a wonderful day, and words cannot express how happy we were with your service. Thank you so much Andy.

Married by Andy  

Thank you Nicole 🥰 such nice words thank you so much. It was truely special being there with the both of you and all your family and friends. We had great fun 🤩 All the best and much love always, Andy

21 Feb 2021

Andy was key and centre of our special day being our celebrant, our MC, and most importantly, our rock to turn to when the emotions were high. His guidance and professionalism gave us confidence and made us feel comfortable from our first meeting all the way through the wedding. He filled our day with life and laughter and we could not ask for a better person to marry us. We really could not speak more highly of him! - Ray & Valentina

20 Feb 2021

If you get married - then with Andy! For us he was the perfect match. Imagine, a German and a Swiss get married in Sydney - there were lots of questions. From the very first moment, Andy was interested in understanding our dreams of this special day and supporting us in realising them. He guided us through all the forms, was always responsive to our questions, and made the whole process easy and very personal. During our ceremony at the top of the Harbour Bridge, he brought our story to life again with his warm, romantic and funny words. Thank you Andy, you absolutely enhanced our wedding event.

Married by Andy  

Soooo good 😌 on top of the harbour bridge!!! What an adventure and so nice to be there and help you along the way. We really made it happen and what a celebration it was 🎊 Thank you again for having me and let's catch up before you leave for sure. Will text now. Much love, Andy

Andy, Andy, Andy, where to start? From the very first meeting we were confident that Andy was the right marriage celebrant to help us celebrate our wedding. Andy is warm, welcoming, cheerful, charming, charismatic, clever, the perfect package and a flawless celebrant! His entire end to end process is easy, and well thought out, and led to a beautiful and unique monologue that meant oh so much to us. He was able to re-create out love story with his words, make us relive our favorite moments as a couple and then pass seamlessly to us for our vows. On the note of vows, Andy also helped us with some great ideas for writing our own, and also helped throughout the whole process to make our vows all the more magical. All-in-all, 100% recommended, and when we renew our vows, we will get married by Andy (again)!

Married by Andy  

Awww Mitchell, 😊 thank you so muc, what an amazing review. It was such an honour to be there with you and Jackie and gosh yeah we've been planning and changing plans many times due to Covid etc. Thank you for having me 🥰. All the best for now, we speak again soon I'm sure. Much love, Andy

My husband and I would like to thank Andy for making our special day so unforgettable! The ceremony he wrote for us was so personal, fun, witty and filled with so much positivity that we couldn’t hold our happy tears on the day! Furthermore , Andy was so patient with us and guided us through the whole process! Strongly recommended!

Married by Andy  

Hey Hey Nadia 🥰 Thank you for your beautiful message. Gosh, what a gorgeous day it was ☀️ and celebrating with you all so special 🛥! Thank you again for having me as your celebrant. Much love to you both xx

19 Sep 2020

I couldn’t have imagined getting married without Andy. He made the whole process simple, and not stressful. Knowing that he was available for any questions or concerns we had completely put my mind at ease. I’ll be forever thinking of the beautifully sweet words he put together for our ceremony. A genuine person, a kind heart, the best celebrant we could have asked for.

Married by Andy  

Thank you Michaela 🥰 Such a pleasure being your celebrant and getting to know you both. We speak soon. Much love 💓

12 Sep 2020

We were so fortunate to have Andy as our celebrant. So professional, fun, caring and creative. Andy is an amazing story teller. He put our story together so well that our guests even commented that he made our story sounded like a fairy tale! Some even recognised Andy from the show Married At First Sight. Andy, thank you for putting together a magical ceremony. It was a dream come true. Thanks a million Andy. We were so glad we chose you to be our celebrant. Tu & Eric

Married by Andy  

Thank you so much Tu & Eric for the wonderful review. 🥰 it was truely a beautful moemnt when it all came together and telling your story is close to a fairy tale. Thank you so much for having me as your celebrant. ☺️ Much love always, Andy

29 Aug 2020

We loved having Andy as our celebrant! From the very first time we met with Andy to discuss the wedding until our interactions with him post wedding - everything went smoothly and was so....fun and pleasant! Andy was very organised, and took great care to get to know us as a couple before the ceremony. He was also proactive (e.g. bringing interesting ideas to the table) and responsive to our needs. He made us feel like our wedding was the most important event he had ever planned, and we could not have been more pleased with the beautiful heartfelt ceremony he delivered. It felt very personal, as if he has known us as a couple for years!  Thank you Andy!

Married by Andy  

Yay - Hey Penelope 🥳 thank you so much! Loved getting to know you both and can't wait for more catch ups and be part of your journey. We speak soon. Much love, Andy 😊

Andy has been incredible throughout this whole process. He guided us through the paperwork, the ceremony and really helped me when I was stuck on writing my vows. He made everyone's day by his enthusiasism. He was incredible throughout the night and I really appreciate everything he did to make our wedding spectacular!

Married by Andy  

🥳 Thank you Rob and Jasmin!!! What a great wedding it was, thank you for having me as your celebrant and MC. We rocked (from our chairs)... I'll see you soon. Much love, Andy
