Questions and Answers

I have an unusual request, can you accommodate me?

Philip Holland

I love the things that make your day truly your own. I have officiated weddings in a cowboy outfit, and in a wetsuit, so no matter how unusual your request, I can likely do it!

Which areas do you service?

Philip Holland

I can travel up the Central Coast and the Hunter Valley, down to Kiama and out to the Blue Mountains.

I'm not sure what I have to do legally?

Philip Holland

Absolutely nothing, I take care of all of the legals for you.

We want to get married ASAP, can you help me with that?

Philip Holland

NSW law requires you to have completed a Notice of Intended Marriage at least one month prior to your intended date. Should you be looking for an elopement, reach out and we can discuss your options.

I'm not sure about writing my own vowes, what should I do?

Philip Holland

I can give you some information to get you started, or alternatively you can use pre-wrote vowes if you would prefer.

Philip officiated our wedding during uncertain times. Due to changing COVID NSW health policies we needed to reschedule our wedding date. Philip was accommodating and allowed us to change our plans with ease. Philip's calm demeanour brought emotional stability to an already chaotic wedding day. His excellent public speaking skills kept all our guests engaged. It was a perfect amalgamation of professionalism and comedy that made Philip a stand-out from all other celebrants we encountered. My partner and I felt truly lucky to have Philip service our wedding ceremony and we could not have chosen a better celebrant.

Thanks so much Nigel, It was an absolute delight to marry you and Chloe in such a beautifully different location - I have never done a ceremony at the Roslyn Packer Theatre before and i will certainly be recommending it to other couples! I hope you have a wonderful life together! All the best, Philip

From the beginning of the planning to the end of the evening, Philip assisted us with a combination of professionalism, cheerfulness, and flexibility that allowed us to say what we felt and to have exactly the ambience we wanted. We couldn't be happier with him and will definitely be booking him for our renewal of vows in ten years!
