See what my couples are saying about their wedding day.


“We were one million per cent happy with our wedding ceremony. Simon delivered exactly what we asked for. Plus he managed to take our embarrassed ramblings and create a moving ceremony that was reflective of us. Thanks so much Simon.” - Andrew & Gavin

"We couldn't have chosen anyone better to officiate our marriage. Our ceremony was thoughtfully written, punctuated with humour, giving everyone a true history of our relationship. Many of our guests were reduced to tears by the beautiful additional vows for my step daughter and myself. Simon is a true professional and we feel honoured to have had him marry us."  - Julie & Duncan

"My partner and I were Simon's first same sex marriage as a celebrant but if there were any nerves he certainly didn't show any! It was a relaxed, thoughtful and very professional presentation. What we really loved was that Simon spent time with us to get to know what we wanted on our wedding day. It felt like he had known us for a long time as his framing of what it meant for us to be in front of our family and friends was spot on! A number of guests commented after the ceremony about its poignancy and relevance to us as a couple. We can't thank Simon enough and highly recommend him!" - David and Takashi

"We are so happy to have chosen Simon as the wedding celebrant for our big day.  He was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the planning stages, as well as on our wedding day.  We didn't know where to begin with putting together the ceremony when we first met with him, but Simon was able to assist us the entire way and provide suggestions and guidance until we had a ceremony script that we were 100% happy with.  On the day Simon delivered the ceremony in the perfect tone - there were highs and lows in our story and he delivered the content artfully and respectfully with a few punches of humour (which was exactly what we wanted!).  We cannot thank him enough for helping us make the day that we had envisaged a reality, and one that we will remember for the rest of our lives."  - Malisa and Jordan

"Having a wedding on the giraffe deck at the Melbourne Zoo called for a special kind of celebrant who shared our vision of fun, love and laughs. Simon was a major part in making our big day one of the best days of our lives. Not only did he take time to get to know us, but he researched our backgrounds and added in traditions from our heritage, making our ceremony even more memorable. Speaking so clearly, Simon presented the ceremony with humour and I had many compliments on our wonderful choice of a celebrant. If you’re looking for a celebrant who cares about you and wants your day to be special, you need to speak to Simon".  - Monique & Sean

"During our extensive search for the perfect celebrant to capture our love story we came across Simon, he provided us with a witty personality that we could not only connect with but calm our nerves and we instantly fell in love with him. We consider him as a big part of our lives and shared a massive part in our special day. His radiates kindness and composure creating an intimate and beautiful day. Simon is easy to work with and helped us create a deeper more meaningful ceremony by putting our relationship and goals into words that could be heard by our beloved friends and family. I would recommend Simon to anyone, he is a perfect celebrant." 
- Angie & Steve

"Thank you so much for sharing the day with us. You did an amazing job. You made the process easy and we found it easy to communicate with you. The guests all enjoyed the ceremony and they loved your accent. Thanks again for all your hard work and we'll definitely recommend you to other people." - Matt & Jeanette

"Simon's unique combination of personality, performing arts ability, compassion and emotional intelligence made choosing him as our celebrant one of the easiest decisions in planning our wedding. In fact we so wanted Simon as our celebrant we volunteered to put him through training so that he could marry us. He is able to strike a fine balance between humour and solemnity, and able to speak in a genuine and authentic way about each of us, our relationship and the life we lead and wish to lead together. Through the ceremony Simon took our guests on a beautiful journey and there was not a dry eye to be found amongst our guests by the end. I couldn't recommend him enough." - Bronwyn & Tom

"Simon was the first celebrant we met with and after five minutes we knew he was the one! Simon put us at ease from the beginning and it instantly felt like we were old friends. He took us through the whole process and gave us many options for what we could do. He was extremely adaptive and delivered exactly the ceremony we wanted. Simon was so genuine, he was fun to be around, he was polite to our parents, he had a great sense of humour but could also be serious when the occasion called for it. Most importantly, Simon has a fantastic British accent. If you are looking for a celebrant that doesn't make you cringe and who isn't over the top and gimmicky, then Simon is the celebrant for you. Thank you Simon! We will miss you!"   - Fiona & Ben

"After being together for a total of 35 years we decided to renew our wedding vows on our 30th anniversary. Simon knew we wanted a relaxed service which celebrated our lives together and he did us so proud. Simon was smart & attentive to us & our guests, chatting with everyone before the ceremony & making sure that everyone, including ourselves were at ease. Simon took our love story and brought it back to life. He injected warmth & just the right amount of humour to keep things relaxed even though we still all cried!!. Simon made our guests feel as if they had shared all of those years with us. We cannot thank him or recommend him highly enough for making our special day something that we will always look upon with great love & affection".
- Julia & Adrian

"Simon provided exactly the tone and atmosphere we were looking for, and the ceremony was a complete success. Simon was charismatic, animated, funny and serious, as was appropriate during different parts of the ceremony. Simon also worked with us regularly in the lead up to the ceremony to ensure his speech and our vows were absolutely perfect, and that we understood exactly what was required of us on the day. We had a full rehearsal on the day before the wedding which was absolutely fantastic and so helpful for us to get our bearings so we were better prepared for the big day. We cannot recommend Simon’s service highly enough and will always send our engaged friends and family directly to him." - Gilly & Nick

"Simon helped us to organise and create exactly the sort of day we'd hoped for. He asked the right questions to understand our wishes and prepared accordingly to deliver exactly the kind of ceremony that we wanted. Meeting and planning with Simon was always an organised and uncomplicated process and we really couldn't have asked for more. Our greatest thanks to Simon for his help in making our day a special and memorable one."  - Craig & Romana

“Simon, you were a fantastic celebrant and MC throughout the day and evening and we greatly appreciate your help, guidance, and positive energy with bringing it all together. “ - Sonchy & Trinh

"Thank you so much it was such a smooth, drama free, and heartfelt ceremony. It's everything we dreamt of and more! All of our guests agreed too! I'm glad you honoured us with staying and enjoying the wedding too." - Betsy & Lee
