Meet Liam

Finding the right celebrant that truly reflects your style, brings a sense of joy to the occasion and makes the planning of the wedding ceremony enjoyable can be hard work.

Your wedding ceremony should be a unique celebration of you as a couple. I aim to make sure that you are the centrepiece of the day. It’s not about me, what everyone else does or how a wedding ‘should be’. Looking back on your wedding ceremony, I want you to be able to say ‘we wouldn't change a thing’.

I place a high value on crafting bespoke ceremonies for each couple. I don’t do the cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all ceremony. If you love a particular band, then let's use their lyrics in the ceremony. If you love your French bulldog, then let's put a bow-tie on the little guy and get him to run down the aisle! Your ceremony should reflect your style as much as your dress and suit, reception venue and photographs do.

Often a wedding ceremony is the formality that has to be observed before the real celebrations start. This doesn't need to be the case at all! I love making sure that couples are as excited about their ceremony as they are about the reception or honeymoon. You and your guests should be able to enjoy the ceremony from start to finish.

Process

From the very first meeting through to the wedding day, I want to give you the confidence that your wedding ceremony will be one of the highlights of your day that you will continue to smile about for years to come.

Coffee & Chat

Let’s meet for an obligation-free catch-up over coffee (or suitable alternate) to get to know each other and talk weddings. We’ll take a look at what a ceremony can include and you can ask me any questions about what’s involved with getting married.

Preparation

If you feel that I’m the right celebrant for you, we will collaborate together to prepare a bespoke ceremony that you will love and be proud of. You will have access to my Ceremony Planner, which includes a portfolio of inspiration for readings, wedding traditions and ideas for personalising your vows. We’ll maintain contact as the ceremony begins to take shape.

Planning Catch Up

Once the ceremony starts to come together, we will meet up again to make sure that you’re happy with the style of your ceremony and that it all feels like you. I’ll check with you that all of the legal paperwork is accurate, complete and ready to go. From here, we will continue to keep in touch and put the finishing touches on your ceremony.

Rehearsal

Close to the wedding day, we will rehearse at either the venue or another suitable location. It helps make sure that the bridal party knows when they’re meant to walk, where they’re meant to stand and what the feel of the ceremony will be like. It’s all about giving everyone involved peace of mind so they can relax and enjoy the ceremony.

Ceremony

On the day, I will be at the venue early to set up. I'll make sure the guests are welcomed and that the wireless PA is nice and clear so that everyone can hear. Once you arrive, it’s all about walking down the aisle as bride and groom, enjoying every moment of your ceremony and walking out as husband and wife!

Thanks for helping make our wedding awesome! You really struck the right balance and made it feel really special with all the personal touches.
Matej + Caroline
When we were thinking of someone to marry us, we wanted someone who was fun, professional and organised. We couldn't have asked for more from Liam.
Allie + Justin
You completely exceeded our expectations and the service you provided in the months leading up to the wedding, on the day as well as afterwards was so professional.
Stacey + Matt
Looking back, the ceremony is one of our favourite parts of the day, so thank you for helping us to create such special memories. 
James + Sarah-Ann
We had heaps of fun and were so happy with how you led the ceremony on the day; engaging, playful and able to adjust to the inevitable last-minute hiccups.
Tom + Emily
Liam, we just want to thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into our wedding, not only on the day, but during the lead up.
Chloe + Blair
