Warmth, professionalism, and attention to detail are what make an exceptional celebrant, and for Sydney-based Shelly Bennett, wedding ceremonies are an experience that will last a lifetime. She believes in making wedding ceremonies joyful and inclusive, ensuring that your marriage is lovingly celebrated. Shelly will create a relaxed and engaging ceremony that you’ll remember forever.

The perfect wedding ceremony should represent and reflect the love and commitment you and your partner have for one another. Based in Sydney, Shelly Bennet believes that her role as a celebrant is to craft a ceremony that showcases your personality, cultural and religious traditions, and the unique quirks that you and your partner share.

“Since the moment we sat down with Shelly, we knew that she was the best fit for us. She understood and expressed our love for each other in the ceremony and took on board our special requests for music, customised rituals and acknowledgements. Most importantly, Shelly made the time for us well before the wedding to run through the plan at her home and in the venue.” Vicky M

After the initial no-obligation chat, Shelly will give you a questionnaire to complete in your own time that asks all the important questions about your relationship. This allows Shelly to weave your love story into the ceremony, using words from your own mouth so that it feels as personal and authentic as possible. Shelly likes to have two meetings with her couples, the second a week out from your wedding day to ensure everyone is on the same page about the schedule and any final questions can be answered.

When we first met with Shelly, we knew that she was the perfect celebrant for us! Shelly is truly dedicated to her craft - her knowledge and experience, communication and attention to detail separate her from other celebrants. Her kind and relaxed demeanour, as well as her ongoing communication, ensured we felt at ease leading up to and on the day of our wedding. Shelly was wonderful to work with and we would definitely recommend her to couples planning their wedding. Thank you, Shelly xo

Shelly was AMAZING, we highly recommend her! She was really patient with me as we had so much to sort out in a very short space of time. Took time to get to know us a bit to personalise the ceremony. She really went above and beyond on the finer details too. I had numerous people tell me afterwards how brilliant she was.
