Hi, I'm Shannon. I'm a Sydney-based celebrant that specialises in crafting beautiful wedding ceremonies that are personal, genuine, heartfelt and unique. I am very passionate about capturing and presenting the personalities of the couples I work with and with each of the ceremonies I perform, I go above and beyond to ensure your ceremony is true to you and your partner.


Based in Sydney, I have a ton of experience crafting personalised wedding ceremonies for a diverse array of couples, taking into account their individual personalities, requests for special readings, I work hard to customise every ceremony I have the pleasure of writing, perfectly capturing the essence of each unique and individual relationship.

Whatever mood or tone you’d like to set for your wedding, the ceremony is the place to do it....and I have the qualities and creative flair to make your ceremony, uniquely you.  During our first chat together (usually on Zoom/free one-hour consultation) we will discuss the type of day you envisage; formal and sophisticated, quirky and full of laughter or sweet and sentimental.  Whatever you’re looking for, I will ensure your vision comes to life.


What you’ll love about working with me (Shannon Black Celebrant) is:

  • My personalised ceremonies. There are no stock-standard ceremonies here; I get to know my couples personally to accurately capture your unique love story.
  • My calm personality. Weddings are stressful, but your celebrant shouldn’t be. My naturally calm and reassuring manner will ensure you walk down the aisle with confidence.  I have a psychotherapy degree, too so I know how to keep you present and in the moment so you enjoy every moment of your celebration.

AMAZING! Shannon was wonderful to work with and make everything so easy for us. Always available to answer phone calls and organised things very quickly for us. We only had a small ceremony but Shannon helped us make it beautiful and very memorable. Our family members were impressed with our choice of celebrant and we highly recommend him to anyone.

Gorgeous bride and groom. So much love in the air. l was thrilled to be part of your special day. Good luck you two. Not that you need it. You're going to be great.

Shannon was such a delight! We ended up eloping during June 2020 and Shannon was super supportive the whole way as our plans changed with restrictions. He really personalised the ceremony and it was incredibly intimate, special and everything we could have asked for in a wedding. Shannon was also very collaborative and worked with us to make sure our day was as special as possible - even if smaller than we originally anticipated!

Carl and I were married in May last year - right in the middle of the COVID pandemic! This had such a detrimental impact on our special day, however Shannon our amazing Celebrant made our day such a magical wonderful day, we honestly cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism and wonderfully caring nature. Our initial meeting with Shannon we knew he was the right person to tell our story and he did that absolutely beautifully, the guests we had expressed how beautiful the ceremony was - not to lengthy just the perfect about of time. Shannon guided us throughout the process and made everything so easy all we had to do is enjoy it, he also gave some wonderful ideas on the day which we did and are so grateful for it. Do not hesitate to meet Shannon, it will be the best decision since saying YES!

Dearest Jo-anne. It was such a pleasure to marry you and Carl....and right at the start of COVID, too. The numbers may have been much lower than anticipated but the joy we all felt was not. In fact, somehow it was amplified. You guys are perfect for each other. l wish you guys a lifetime of happiness. All the best for your futures.

It was a true pleasure working with Shannon on our wedding. We wanted something different, that captured the moment, recognised our connection to each other and was inclusive of our loving family and friends. Shannon brought a depth of understanding and experience that helped us shape the perfect ceremony. He was both generous with ideas and receptive to our input, which made this process smooth and collaborative. On the day, he performed the ceremony beautifully, creating and holding the space with his warm, calm and professional presence. Thank you Shannon, everyone keeps telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

Shannon was amazing, he fulfilled all our expectations no matter how unique. HIs ceremony perfectly captured us as individuals and as a couple and he brought our relationship to life with grace and humour. He was exceptionally helpful and available any time we needed. Our day was made more perfect having Shannon as our celebrant and we highly recommend his services. We can't thank him enough for all he did to make our wedding a very special day.

l absolutely loved being your celebrant, Matthew. You and Vanessa were a delight to work with. Thanks for all the laughs.

Shannon was absolutely wonderful helping us plan and write our wedding ceremony. My husband Jack and I got married in December last year right after Covid was finally starting to settle down. Shannon was so easy to deal with, and we were able to email or call whenever we needed help. We had a few videochats to help plan our special day. Shannon is very approachable and helped both my husband and I write our vows, which we were both very nervous about doing. We both felt like Shannon shared the story of our relationship perfectly with our friends and family on our special day. We can't thank you enough Shannon.

Shannon Black Celebrant  

Thankyou so much, Emma, for your generous words. l feel touched by them. lt was a delight working with you and Jack and l had a great time with all of your family. All the very best to all of you.

Shannon married my husband Andrew & I on the 16.1.21. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant! He was so great at writing and communicating our ceremony transcript leading up to the wedding, helping us get our vows right, and doing an incredible job on the day of our wedding. We are so grateful to have had Shannon part of our special day and highly recomend him to other couples <3

Stephanie and Andrew's wedding was a real treat for me. These guys are my friend's so being there on their special day was a great thrill and getting to perform their ceremony was very special to me. They are such a happy couple ... it truly was one of the most enjoyable ceremonies I have ever performed. Love you guys. x

Covid weddings have been quite few but there is something about getting married for the second time that makes the day extra special. It was such a please to marry you and Deanna, Chad. l loved all of your choices, especially the music ones. Best of luck with your futures. I know you are going to be happy together forever.

Positive experience from the get go. Shannon made the celebrant process very easy for us, sent all the required forms before our wedding and was happy to answer phone calls and help whenever needed. The civil ceremony process went really well and Shannons voice is very engaging for the audience.

How lovely of you to say all those nice things, Janahan. Marrying you and Malishi was pure joy for me...and the wedding photos l have of your special day are some of my most vibrant and colourful pics l have ever been a part. Your family's sahris were magnificent. Thanks again for choosing me. l wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

Shannon was so lovely to communicate with and not knowing what to expect when it comes to this process, Shannon made everything very easy for us. He was very accommodating of some of the changes we requested (shortened ceremony as we also had cultural ceremony) and answered all our questions promptly. Shannon is a calm presence and it was so lovely to have as part of our wedding day. I would highly recommend Shannon for future wedded couples.

Shannon Black Celebrant
