Congratulations on your decision to marry. As celebrant, my role is to assist you in planning the best ceremony for your wedding.


I offer an obligation free meeting to discuss all of your requirements and answer any questions you may have. My single fee covers absolutely everything possible. There are no extra charges.


If you wish to proceed, we then attend to all the legal requirements as discussed during our first meeting before beginning the exciting part of planning the best ceremony possible. There are no limits on how many sessions this takes.


My aim is to:

  • listen and plan with you, the detail for your ceremony
  • provide you with the best ceremony for the day
  • enable you to achieve whatever you wish for on the day
  • provide you with material that can assist with your decisions
  • professionally deliver a ceremony designed with you

Together we will create a Ceremony of Your Choice. Whatever style of ceremony. Wherever the location. Whatever you wish of on the day.

Renewal of Vows

Often throughout life, we look back on our wedding day and wish we could re-live those very special moments. We can - by renewing our vows in a very special ceremony with those we choose to share this day with.

It can be just like your own wedding day, or maybe you would like to choose a ceremony that suits your current lifestyle. What an opportunity to enhance your relationship and involve your family and friends.

Renewal of Vows

Receive a certificate of your vows and a copy of your ceremony to keep as a memento to enjoy and to remember the special days in your life. To discuss your unique circumstances, feel free to contact me.

Commitment Ceremonies

I would be honoured to officiate at a ceremony where two people were so committed to each other, that they would like to publicly declare their love for one another.

While Australian law does not recognise same gender marriages, there is nothing to prevent you from having a very special ceremony designed to join you to your partner in a wonderful and meaningful way.

I can assist you in the preparation of a ceremony that is designed to reflect your personal lifestyles, wishes and beliefs.

Best celebrant we have ever met! We felt like we had known him our whole life. Such a beautiful person! My whole family loved him. Speaks beautifully. Takes the time to explain everything to you. So happy he was part of our big day. I highly recommend Tony!

Sonia G

Tony is amazing. We wanted someone that was laid back and willing to listen. Tony only wanted to do what we wanted to ensure the ceremony suited us as a couple. Nothing was too much for him and we would’t have gotten married by anyone else.

Emma P

Excellent! Engaging, friendly and enlightening. From the moment we phoned Tony we knew he was the celebrant we wanted to marry us. Upon first meeting with Tony we felt he simply “got us”. Tony was genuinely interested in who we wereand how we wished to celebrate our marriage. Tony helped us create a ceremony that was truly us.

Ruby N

Tony was the first celebrant we met and straight away we knew he was perfect for our wedding. He was extremely helpful and supported us through the whole process. He understood what we wanted and put together an amazing ceremony that reflected us perfectly.

Kirby E

Tony made us feel comfortable and was able to capture exactly what we were after for our ceremony. He was always available for us to call, message or email. Truly an outstanding celebrant and person.

Jodie S

Tony was fantastic! He was incredibly supportive and helpful from start to finish. He gave practical advice and catered the ceremony to really reflect us as a couple. He did a wonderful job on the day and created a personalised ceremony that everybody enjoyed and commented on.

Lauren S

Tony was the perfect celebrant! He personalised our wedding and made sure we knew that it was our day and his job was to help make it all run smoothly and, more importantly, make sure it was the best day of our lives. We really appreciated the advice he gave us from his experience over the years, and liked how natural but discrete he was with the way he conducted our ceremony.

Jenna H

We both want to say we could not be happier with how the wedding went. You are a fantastic celebrant and a wonderful man. So thank you. Nothing was ever a problem. You made us feel so special!

Brooke and Kerry

Thank you Tony, for a perfect wedding ceremony. The whole experience was stress-free and totally enjoyable. You have an amazing sense of calm and peace about you, and were helpful all of the time. What a pleasure to deal with.

Sandra and Matthew

I have never been to a wedding where so many people commented on how good the celebrant was. Tony was professional from the start, we instantly knew he was the one we wanted. He works with you to make sure everything is prefect for your special day.

Kade W

A genuinely nice man. Took all concerns seriously, but kept the process fun and light-hearted. Cared about what we wanted the whole time, and always had suggestions when we weren’t sure. Celebrants vary a lot. Tony is the best. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
