I’m David, an Authorised Marriage Celebrant creating warm and intimate ceremonies that celebrate love and connection in Melbourne and the Yarra Valley
IF YOU WANT A FRIENDLY, FUN ANDCELEBRANT, I’M YOUR MAN!
As your celebrant, I will bring joy and warmth to your special day, ensuring that your ceremony is not only beautiful and memorable, but also engaging and fun. I have officiated many ceremonies since 2020, taking the time to get to know each couple personally and designing a ceremony that truly reflects who you are as a couple. My focus is to make the ceremony all about you and your love story, and I will work with you to incorporate any cultural or personal touches that make your ceremony truly yours. I am deeply committed to celebrating diversity and inclusivity and creating a safe and inclusive space for all couples, including LGBTQI+ couples, to express their love.
Fun fact about me: I have a passion for the performing arts and not only am I an authorised marriage celebrant, but I am also a music and drama teacher and an experienced musician. When I’m not creating personalised and unforgettable wedding ceremonies, you can find me dancing at festivals, enjoying live musical theatre, hosting dinner parties for friends, or relaxing and playing video games. I also love getting into the spirit of things and dressing up for costume parties or as Santa during the holiday season.
If you have any questions or want to talk about how I can make your wedding ceremony everything you’ve dreamed of, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m based in Croydon North, and service the stunning Yarra Valley, beautiful Mount Dandenong, and the Melbourne CBD. I also can travel to popular locations like Mornington Peninsula, Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula, Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island and Macedon Ranges and anywhere else in Victoria and Australia for a small fee. Let’s make your day unforgettable!
We had a very private and personal wedding which David came to our house to marry us! He arrived with all paperwork in order and was very knowledgeable in his role! He gave us our timeframes to receive our marriage certificate in the mail and loved having a laugh with us 💕

David was incredible he helped us do our celebration do over after our celebrant pulled out 12 weeks from our wedding. We are so grateful to David and the time frame he had to get things done for us. Not to mention our wedding was 3 days out from Christmas so thank you again David for taking your time to support us through this new chapter. We also appreciate the profound respect and interest David had in our cultural ceremony. Having David part of this process made it all come together just as we had envisaged. Pippa and Jordan

First things first, let’s schedule a quick chat! We can do this over the phone or through Zoom, and it’s the perfect opportunity for you to ask me any questions you may have and to make sure I’m the right celebrant for you before putting down a deposit. Once you’re comfortable with the idea of me being your celebrant, we’ll find a time to meet properly either over Zoom or in person over a coffee. This is where we’ll get to know each other better and I’ll want to learn all about you and your love story. It’s also when the planning begins – we’ll start organising the details of your ceremony, and we’ll take care of all the legal requirements.
While you focus on all the other aspects of your big day, I’ll be hard at work crafting a ceremony that truly represents your love story and personalities. I’ll take care of all the legal paperwork and ensure everything is in order, so you can relax and enjoy the planning process. I understand that planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but rest assured that I am here to guide and support you every step of the way. If you have any questions or need any advice, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
On the big day, I’ll arrive early to set up my professional audio equipment, coordinate with any other vendors (photographer, musicians, etc.) and ensure everything is in order. You can trust in my ability to handle any unexpected issues that may arise during the ceremony, like a fashionably late aunty, a sudden change in weather, or even a flower girl with a change of heart. I’ll guide you through a personalised, heartfelt, fun, and engaging ceremony that truly reflects your love story. Rest assured, your ceremony will not only be unforgettable, but also one of the most beautiful and meaningful moments of your lives.
