About

I absolutely love being a Marriage Celebrant! I think that to play a part in a couple’s journey together on a day that they will never forget is such an honour that it never ceases to amaze and humble me. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 12 years, and it was such a great experience with our own Celebrant that inspired me to want to bring that joy to others. I love my dogs, all sports, music, surfing, the great outdoors and travelling. I can’t wait to be your Celebrant!

      FAQ

      For the Full Package, which is the most popular with couples, the average cost of my services is $1000. This represents the substantial amount of time invested in working hard on making your ceremony absolutely unique to you! The Micro Package and Deluxe Package have adjusted prices from there. My focus is making your experienced fully tailored to your needs to ensure that you have the perfect ceremony that will be truly unforgettable!

      Whereas my goal is to make your ceremony absolutely suited to all your desires, I bring my own style to officiating your ceremony. 

      To summarise my style in five words, my ceremonies are; personal, laid-back, engaging, fun and unique!

      My job is to make this process as easy and painless as possible!

      To summarise, the two legal documents that you will complete prior to your wedding are:

      1. A Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) and

      2. A Declaration of No Legal Impediment (DONLI)

      The NOIM must be submitted to your Celebrant no less that one month and one day before your wedding date, and is submitted to me as your Celebrant. You will need a form of ID that provides your date and place of birth, and one form of photo ID. A passport ticks both of these boxes. If you are divorced or widowed, a divorce or death certificate are also required to complete the NOIM.

      The DONLI is submitted as close to your wedding date as possible, and confirms that there is no legal reason why your marriage can't go ahead.

      I support you every step of the way and ensure that your private information is entirely confidential and stored securely.

      Often couples ask me this question for the purposes of planning the timeline of their day.

      Typically a ceremony will last approximately 20 minutes, however this obviously varies depending on added inclusions to your ceremony. Popular inclusions may include readings by special loved ones, meaningful rituals or personal vows. 

      Yes! A part of what I love about being a Celebrant is having the opportunity to travel to and experience amazing venues around New South Wales and beyond. As I do need to cover some costs (especially with fuel prices these days!) I usually apply a small travel fee when travelling: beyond Greater Sydney to the north, beyond Batemans Bay to the south and beyond the Great Dividing Range to the west. 

      The months of September through to February are the busiest times for Celebrants making bookings. Generally, notice of anywhere between 4 - 12 months in advance would be recommended but don't let this put you off! It's worth contacting me to see if your date is free!

      I have a background in teaching in the lower-socioeconomic areas of Western Sydney over the course of almost 20 years, so this should tell you that I am INCREDIBLY flexible! Unexpected situations and changes are the norm, and I am extremely skilled in adapting and adjusting to all scenarios that may occur. Importantly, I am very calm and accommodating so any time that changes or different circumstances arise, they are solved quickly, efficiently and stress-free all round. 

      Absolutely! I am great at connecting with couples and getting to know you quickly, which guides me for giving tips or making suggestions that will make your ceremony unique and tailored specifically to your personalities, values and your special relationship. 

      The short answer is, yes! For what I lack in hair I make up for in personality! It is ingrained in me to go the extra mile to represent the bald community well!

      Chris, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for being our celebrant and MC. You really made everything so easy and stress-free, and we couldn't have asked for a better day. I want to express my appreciation and acknowledge that you completely surpassed our expectations for our wedding. Not only did you meet the goals we set, but you went above and beyond to make our dreams come true. Your dedication, attention to detail, and sheer talent were evident in every aspect. Needless to say, at the end of the night, many guests expressed how much they loved you! Thank you Chris! We will be sure to recommend you to anyone and everyone we can.

      “Chris was absolutely amazing!! Right from the very beginning he was so easy to talk to, asked us all the questions so he was able to create something magical for our ceremony. He is highly professional and organised but also so friendly and easy to get along with. When picking our celebrant, we knew how important the ceremony was to us and Chris 110% lived up to the expectations we had. Since our special day we have had so many people tell us what a great ceremony it was. If you want a fun, heartfelt and easy going ceremony, Chris is 100% your guy!’ (Ally) ‘Chris was the perfect celebrant for us! He was so easy going and super easy to work with throughout the process, adapted to any changes we had or wanted, made great suggestions that we used, and just made the entire process fun and stress free.

      It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your special day! Your surprise wedding was absolutely beautiful and perfect, and everyone had a blast. Thanks for the great review and continue to enjoy your journey together! <3

      June 2024

      It was an absolute pleasure to have Chris as our celebrant, MC and DJ at our wedding. From our initial conversation with Chris, we knew immediately he was the perfect candidate for us. We felt a connection with him and his enthusiastic and energetic personality. Chris took a genuine interest in our relationship, and the story behind it, which he transitioned into the day. For us, his attention to detail in all aspects of the process was second to none. He captured the moment so well, engaged the guests and delivered such a smooth and entertaining experience. He made our day special for us. Chris is the complete package. From his professionalism, to his kind and caring nature and humour. We would highly recommend Chris to anybody that is looking for a genuine professional in every sense of the word. After our interactions with him, we regard Chris as a friend and hope to catch up with him in the future.

      My partner and I could not recommend Chris enough!! Not only was he so easy and fun to collaborate and chat with, he made our entire day a spectacular experience. He ensured that we both understood all paperwork and processes throughout while also giving us the opportunity to get involved in all planning of the day. Chris was our celebrant/MC but went above and beyond in ensuring the entire wedding from beginning to end ran smoothly. He made sure our ceremony and reception was personalised, funny and respectful. He was extremely professional and thoughtful of us and our guests the entire day. For an interfaith couple, Chris managed to create a perfect atmosphere and helped our families join into one. Myself, my partner and our guests all thoroughly enjoyed having Chris present throughout the event. We could not have asked for a better person to be apart of our special day! Thank you Chris!
