Creating a beautiful wedding ceremony is a team effort between the couple and their celebrant. A professional marriage celebrant should be a very good listener, be able to provide you with guidance and ideas, but also respect your wishes and be open to any suggestions. It is very important that you feel comfortable with me, and that I get to know you so that we are able to connect and openly discuss all your ideas and expectations.
Whatever the occasion, Tony can help create a unique and heartfelt ceremony that celebrates and honours the special times in your life.
Whether it’s traditional or alternative, simple or elaborate, casual or elegant Tony’s role is to help craft a meaningful ceremony that expresses individuality and captures the essence of the occasion.
Each step of the way, from the welcoming address to the final presentation, Tony can help tailor the ceremony to include individual elements or suggest ways to involve family and friends, incorporate ceremonial rituals, symbolism or cultural customs.
Tony will ensure you have an enjoyable lead up to your ceremony and feel at ease knowing you’re in great hands on your special day.
