Marriage Celebrant Gold Coast


Welcome! Together with my wife Patti, we share a passion for helping engaged couples have the most memorable wedding day possible and for them to receive the very best preparation for their marriage.


We believe that a good marriage, like a good wine, gets even better with age, and also that a good marriage provides the best foundation for success in every aspect of a couple's life.


You are on an exciting journey towards your wedding day and marriage, and as your marriage celebrant I want to prepare for that wonderful journey!


Wedding Day Preparation


I meet every couple before they decide to engage me as their marriage celebrant. The purpose of this meeting is not only for sharing information but also to see if we can connect at a friendly level. In my experience I have found that the better the relationship I have with the couple before the wedding , the more relaxed, intimate and fun the wedding ceremony becomes.


I will guide you through planning the wedding ceremony, writing wedding vows, wedding rehearsal, preparing legal documents and pre-marriage coaching.


Marriage Preparation


My goal is to help you get married and help you stay married. I really want you to get the most from your wedding day and more from your marriage.


A good marriage celebrant will focus on you, work closely with you and make you feel that your wedding and marriage is just as important to them as it is to you. That is why I always encourage every couple's involvement in a series of pre-marriage coaching sessions.


When the excitement of the wedding day has faded and the realities of marriage have set in, the true value of your marriage celebrant will surface. Research shows that the better prepared a couple is before they get married, the better the chance of their marriage relationship lasting.


Next Steps...


I would love to meet with you and discuss your wedding plans.
Please call me on 0423 77 22 12 to book an appointment.
Congratulations again on your decision to marry!
