Hi! I'm a marriage celebrant. I'm also gay. Can I marry you?

As one of Melbourne’s gay celebrants, I’d love to work with you to create and then deliver a wedding ceremony for you that’s professional, polished and memorable.

As an active member of the LGBTI community, same-sex couples can trust me to use language that is appropriate and safe.

I’m a full-time celebrant. That means I can spend as much time as we need, to draft and re-draft your ceremony so that, long after it’s over, your guests will be still be talking about it. For all the right reasons.

I don’t do “boring” (unless I’m asked to!). And I don’t do cookie-cutter ceremonies. I take pride in starting from scratch and creating a unique ceremony for each couple I marry. To do that, I spend time getting to know you so that I can reflect your personalities in a ceremony that “nails” you.

On your wedding day, I’ll make sure the spotlight is on you and your partner – not on me, as your celebrant. My couples say that I radiate a great sense of calm amidst the chaos and stress of a wedding.

Whether you’re after a traditional wedding with a huge guest list, a smaller, intimate and informal ceremony with just a few witnesses – or virtually anything in between – we can make your wedding amazing. And if you're a same-sex couple, I'll make sure you have some great LGBTI options that can make your wedding a cracker, rather than just more of the same old traditional straight weddings we've all been to. 

Let’s get together somewhere that’s mutually convenient, have a no-obligation chat, and see if we’re a good fit.


I've attended every marriage equality rally held in the CBD of Melbourne since the postal survey was announced; I volunteer with JOY 94.9, Australia’s only LGBTI radio station, as a newsreader each week; I donate $20 from each same-sex ceremony I perform to a volunteer group of which I’m a member that helps feed and clothe homeless people (including LGBTI people) in Melbourne’s CBD each Thursday night; I have a wide social network and friendship group that includes lots of LGBTI people.

Bronte was the celebrant for our gay wedding and he was nothing short of amazing. Bronte was attentive, knowledgable, had many great ideas to share and was able to integrate a package that was a fabulous experience tailored to our needs. Bronte offered various insights and suggestions with no pressure for us to incorporate his ideas. However, his knowledge of LGBTQIA+ culture, politics and history helped us create a ceremony that was something we were so proud of, and something our guests described as a wonderful acknowledgement of cultural contribution. Bronte is very personable and we clicked immediately. We would definitely recommend him and his services to anyone. Thank you for your guidance and support Bronte!

Have you ever made a mistake in a ceremony? Like saying a name wrong or anything?

Bronte Price - Gay Celebrant Melbourne

If I'm marrying a couple whose names are difficult for me to pronounce, I get them to record the correct pronunciation on my iPhone, slowly and at converational pace. I then rehearse the heck out of them until they and I are satisifed that I am pronouncing them perfectly. That becomes clear at the ceremony rehearsal. The same applies to other words included in the ceremony - eg in the titles of readings etc. I am pretty insistent on us having a rehearsal so that the couple and I at least look like we know what we're doing! A great rehearsal makes the ceremony flow smoothly, and reduces the stress and level of nervousness on the wedding day. And typically, we'd rehearse things like the vows - and any movement by me, in particular - numerous times until we are all happy with it. All of that helps ensure there are no errors. But if someone stuffs up their vows, we either just keep going or go back over it again and say that part again. It's never an issue.

How long does a civil ceremony take?

I'm having a civil ceremony but I don't know how long it should be to give me enough time to do photos after and also not bore my guests? How long does the average civil ceremony take?

Bronte Price - Gay Celebrant Melbourne

As a rough guide, a civil ceremony will take 25-30 minutes. It can go longer, depending on the length of the couple's story, the number of readings, and the length of other sub-ceremonies that you wish to add - e.g. a sand ceremony or butterfly release. I encourage couples to involve their guests in their ceremony via readings etc - but I also remind them that each addition means a lengthening of the ceremony. I also encourage them to look after their guests, so they don't get bored or have to stand for a long time. It'd be a rare civil ceremony that went longer than 45 mins, including the signing.
