About Me

If you’re looking for a fun celebrant for your wedding here I am!     Whether it’s a short, basic “legals-only” ceremony or a full-on ceremony with the works, I am happy to help you have the wedding you have always wanted.  All my ceremonies are tailor-made to suit the couple’s wishes, so I would work cooperatively with you to ensure you get what you want.  Whether you’re straight, LGBTQI+, or anything in between, I am happy to accommodate your every wish.  I am an experienced and confident public presenter, as well as an authorised Civil Marriage Celebrant and Justice of the Peace.  Contact me for an obligation-free chat at any time.  Based in Melbourne but I am happy to travel.  And remember, 28 days notice is a legal requirement for all weddings in Australia so let’s get the ball running.




“Thank you, it’s perfect” – Taylor, Melbourne.

“Thanks you so much for yesterday.  The ceremony was absolutely perfect.  We were so happy with everything.  All the guests said you were amazing, including those watching online.”  Joe and Ashley, Malvern. Vic.

“Thanks again for delivering a beautiful tribute for my dad. So many of my family and friends commented on how lovely the ceremony was and in particular all of the readings. Thank you for helping me to make it so personal, authentic and beautiful” – Mira, Melbourne.

Dear Grant,

“Where to start! We cannot begin to thank you enough for being our celebrant. What started  as chaos when we were planning, was truly such a magical day. We are so incredibly grateful that fate brought us together and that you were able to be there to make our wedding everything that we could dreamed of”- Nick & Kitty

“Thank you so much for helping to celebrate Shane’s life yesterday, you did a great job. We are forever grateful” -Wilson Family

“Thanks so much Grant. Perfect.”

“I just wanted to write and thank you so
much for the beautiful way you handled Mum’s funeral yesterday. You were so lovely and kind to all of us and did such a beautiful job. I’m sure Mum would have really liked you a lot. You made something very hard a lot easier for us, and for that we will be eternally grateful. Thank you for coming all the way out to Bayswater North to meet with us, and the gentle and sensitive manner in which you looked after us, particularly my Dad who is grieving the loss of his life partner, my beautiful Mum.
Thank you so much for everything you did and said, you were amazing!”

Thanks again Grant. It’s just what we wanted – you really should do this for a living 😊.

“You’ve written something very special. You have made a very subtle insight into the issues surrounding mental health. There is still such a stigma and gently including it in the way you have is wonderful. I’m happy for you to use your lovely words in the description of mental health”. 
-Richard Queensland (September 2022)
“This is to say how much we appreciated your guidance, support and coordination of the Celebration of Life Service.  We recently rewatched the Service and were so impressed and appreciative of the role you played in bringing the Service together. Thank you so much”
– Johnson family.

Hi Grant ,

I just would like to thank you ,for the way you handled everything with Dignity and compassion on Friday.

The family felt that we gave ‘R’ a good send off.

Personally, I felt very safe in your hands and  I was always confident that we would achieve a good result.

Thank you for your Guidance and advice ,it was a great help to us all.

-Graham from East Melbourne, 2022.


“On behalf of everyone in my family, I want to thank you for the beautiful service you led to celebrate the life of my father last Friday. We all felt that you helped us to capture the essence of our father, grandfather, great-grandfather and of course our mother’s husband. You have a very difficult job, and the way you helped us focus on our father led to everyone commenting on what a beautiful and meaningful service it was”

-MM from Altona 


“Grant is a sensational   celebrant, he married my daughter and son in law, in the garden at the farm, we laughed, we cried, and were genuinely thrilled with the service, so full of positive  emotions, recommend him totally”
-Sheilagh, Scarsdale, Ballarat.

“I have just had that read out to me by my phone. I went cold. That is so so good. I’m lost for words. I thankyou from the bottom of my heart for what you’ve done. Man that is so nice”.

-Phillip from Wales (United Kingdom)

We would like to thank you ever so much for your understanding and support prior to and most importantly during the wonderful celebration for H you gave us last Friday
So many people attending commented to us how amazing it was to be there especially with the loving atmosphere that was created by your presentation
We came away sad, but knowing that H will always be remembered as a beautiful soul and is now resting peacefully
I will also be writing to Fred at Ern Jensen’s for their assistance, absolute professionalism and respect they provided through out H’s passing
Again, Grant  thank you from the bottom of my  broken heart.

My sister and I wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation for the role you played in helping bring together the celebration of life for our Mum.It is a difficult time but it helped having warm introductions made to you and when we reached out the way in which you engaged with us and led us through things with empathy and care was appreciated.   You also kept us on task which made sure we were as organised as well as we could be….thank you!

I have just had that read out to me by my phone. I went cold. That is so so good. I’m lost for words. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you’ve done. Man that is so nice. When you thank others please please say along the lines I thank you for looking after the service. I know it’s awkward when it’s yourself but which ever way you feel appropriate I must publicly thank you.

“How lucky were we to have Grant not only conduct a family funeral earlier in the year for us but conduct our wedding.   Words cannot describe how meticulous Grant was and how warm and welcome all our guests felt, his attention to detail is without peer.  We highly recommend Grant for any occasion”
Peter and Tony. 2023
“Grant is a wonderful celebrant.  Our ceremony was exactly as we dreamed.  He made the day flow beautifully, our vision came to life because of him. He is caring and eloquent, funny and charismatic.   We felt listened to and the process with Grant was so easy.  If I could recommend 10 stars I would!!    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Grant, our day wouldn’t have been the same without you”
Beckie and Shane. 2022
“Would highly recommend Grant.  He went above and beyond to make our day so special.  Warm, engaging, easy to deal with, sense of humour and attention to detail, our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more.  You won’t find a more professional and eloquent celebrant.  Thank you Grant!  You were amazing”
Alan. 2022
