July 2023

We had a DnD themed wedding and Sly was the perfect fit into our fantasy world ! From the willingness to wear an outfit to the vows he wrote for us, Sly went out of his way to really embrace the idea and create something magical and unique with it. All the guests loved him as an MC and thought he had known us for years. We were so fortunate we found someone who didn't back down from a challenge and could do something different and Sly took the DnD theme and ran with it, it was such a perfect day ! There aren't enough words to express how grateful we are for everything he did to make our wedding day so special 💖

Throughout the entire process, Sylvester was thorough, and provided such detail. He created such a personalised and unique experience for us, making us feel prioritised and comfortable. Sylvester has shown such passion and enthusiasm towards our whole experience, and reminded us of how exciting and amazing the experience should and would be, and with the huge help of Sylvester, it truely was exactly that. Sylvester has an incredible eye for detail, and showed such professionalism yet casualness, as he introduced and interacted with all family and friends. Sylvester also adapted to our atmosphere and vibe as he adjusted our run sheet depending on external factors, arrival times, etc, doing this with such calm, and ease, creating such a fun, relaxed and organised day. Couldn’t recommend enough!

Hey Tahlia, talk about a fun filled and energetic wedding you threw. Your words mean so much, but your family and friends made the MC portion side of things super simple and relaxing. Also, just a quick reminder about the perfection of the day you had at the ceremony. It truly was something that the photos could not do justice. Everything was simply stunning including you and hubby! Congratulations again.

March 2023

Sylvester Arriza was a truly amazing celebrant who also MC'd at our wedding. Not a celebrant who just smiles, reads his lines, and goes through the motions, but brings such an incredible charm, charisma, love, and passion to making a bride and grooms special day one that they'll never forget for all the right reasons. If I had to redo my wedding day again, I would absolutely fight tooth and nail to make sure he was there to proceed over the day. So I can hole heartedly recommend him to anyone getting married and guarantee it will be a day you will never forget and be eternally grateful for.

Hey Joel, Some very kind words mate and truly feel humbled and blessed to have been part of that wedding. There were plenty of emotions that day and I'm just glad I was able to see a glimpse of the amount of love you both showed to everyone.

March 2023

The initial interviews he took us on a step by step process on how it will be. Sylvester took the time to know us on a personal level so he could conduct a ceremony tailored to who we are. We didn’t really have any questions because Sylvester explained everything so thoroughly. You can see there is a real passion for what he does and so easy going. Our day was the most magical day ever

Thanks for the kind words Kevin. It's truly was a wedding to remember, not only because of the family and friends you had surrounding you, but the intense passion between you and beautiful wife. It's a great reminder that soulmates do exist in our lifetimes and your wedding was a great example of finding that one and only.

March 2023

Married 3.3.23, Sylvester was very accommodating, and flexible. willing to adapt our ceremony to us and what we wanted, he also was able to suggest some things we may not have thought about. He was happy to work with us on everything, from songs for walking down the aisle to taking a reverse fist kiss (photo from where the celebrant stands). He made everything such a breeze and took so much stress off me, if I'm ever in need of a celebrant again for anything I would have no hesitation on calling him.


Sylvester Arraiza - My Lifetimes

Hey Krystal. You know that this wedding was quite emotional for a lot of people and we saw the amount of passion and love in that room come alive. I'm super blessed and humbled that you allowed me to give everything I could for you both and I truly am so proud of the direction and future you both have to look forward to. Congratulations again.

Advice for having your dog in your ceremony

Would love some advice! We def want to include our dog in our wedding ceremony! We want him as the ring bearer. Are they are any things to avoid or prepare for in advance? Thanks!

Sylvester Arraiza - My Lifetimes

This is a great idea honestly, super genuine and special.

It's a reflection of the relationship in my opinion and you can go about it in many ways.

Safest way to get it done is to have someone walk down the dog on a leash with the ring either on the neck or the back secured safely.

When it comes to having the rings presented, the same person who had walked down the dog would carry the dog to the bride and groom and allow the bride and groom to remove the rings then and there.

Makes for a great photo op and if you believe it or not, the dog will like they have contributed to the ceremony.

Nothing is wrong with going outside these ideas, but overall the day is about you both and not the dog. He or she will be there to simply compliment the ceremony as everyone else will be looking at you both (more likely the bride)

Anything we need to consider or do differently for a weekday wedding?

Hi there. We're considering a weekday wedding, maybe a Thursday or Sunday. Is there anything ] different or unexpected we'd need to consider about having a non-Saturday wedding?

Sylvester Arraiza - My Lifetimes

Weekday Weddings are as normal as the weekend ones. Major differences is the expectation of your guests attending if they work or unable to get time off work. On a positive, weekday weddings tend to be alot more affordable and venues generally are not as booked making it easier to find a venue of your choice. 

Guide to writing our own vows

We're wondering if there are some guidelines or where we can start to write our own vows? Like, an easy step by step process. Knowing which parts have to be said and which parts we can change/make our own. Thanks!

Sylvester Arraiza - My Lifetimes

Truly a topic which I believe 9/10 people spend way too much time on worrying about then remembering what your words at the ceremony means.

I've told all my my couples to simply write their other half a letter. This letter should be explaining what has happened, what is happening and what will happen moving forward knowing that this is the last time they will be alone.

It works on so many levels and a heartfelt letter will bring more tears and warm more hearts than an obvious Google searched template.

If anything, the delivery of your vows is more important that the words. Even the most motivational of speeches being read out by a robotic monotone computer will not catch anyones emotions.
