About Me

Firstly, let me say, I love my job!

It’s the best feeling to be able to stand with a couple that are about to declare their love for one another amongst their family and friends. The happiness and joy that surrounds this wonderful occasion will stay with them forever.

You’ll find me so easy going with a fresh, fun approach to your plans and ideas that’ll make your Wedding unique from all others.

During the meet and greet I’ll take you through the legal requirements and all the other fine details that make up a truly memorable wedding ceremony.

I will show you an example of a wedding ceremony format that I use, it’s simple and we can change it at anytime. You can write your own vows, which can be a highlight of the ceremony. These can be sincere or lighthearted with a dash of comedy. If there are any nerves on the day, they can be lifted by the humor aspect, which puts everyone at ease.

On the day of the meeting I always bring a Notice of Intended Marriage NOIM, This is the legal document that I send to The Birth’s Deaths and Marriages after your Ceremony, We can sign it there and then and get the Ceremony ball rolling. How exciting!

I supply a first class PA system for your Ceremony. I use quality Audio equipment, Microphones and music connect, USB and Bluetooth.

Together we’ll create a wonderful ceremony for an unforgettable day.

David Newman I honestly cant thank you enough for the amazing ceremony. Like i said in my thankyou speech i dont think i could have got it over the line without your positive attitude and reassurance from the start to the end. Was so great that you travelled to Melbourne and really took the time to get to know us a couple. Thankyou
