Thank you so much for translating our thoughts into the most perfect ceremony for us. You understood us both so well and were able to interpret exactly what we wanted and made the whole process so easy. I think you're extremely adaptable and outstanding at what you do and we can't thank you enough for the care and thought you put into creating our ceremony.

Shura and Ge

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help on Saturday. It really was the best day of our lives!!

The whole evening was really set by the ceremony. Everyone LOVED IT!! We have had such good feedback.

It was genuinely the best day of our lives. Thanks again for making the ceremony so memorable! so many people told us it was by far the best ceremony they'd ever been to.

Benn's confidence and degree of organization are what made us decide to choose him to marry us as soon as we met him. We opted for the Celebrity package which included the Marriage, MC/DJ for the reception and a bonus photo-booth. Benn asked for specific details, respected our requests and saw that the night ran smoothly. Knowing that I could rely on him to have full control of these roles was truly a load off my mind and we greatly appreciated his services. All of this, plus his competitive pricing make him someone I would definitely recommend

Katrina and Trent

Dear Benn, What a beautiful, loving and funny ceremony we had all thanks to you! From the moment we meet you we felt completely at ease where you have a great energy and fun personality about you that connected really well with us. You were very efficient with the paper work, supported us in creating some of our own personal vows and our guests couldn’t stop talking about how professionally you delivered our ceremony.

Johnny and Clare 

Hi Benn,

I just wanted to email and say we made the right choice choosing you as our celebrant, and a huge thank you for helping us and making the ceremony so easy (I was fuc*#@g nervous!!).
We honestly had the best day of our lives. You were the perfect celebrant for us!

Thanks again, we'll definitely be recommending you to anyone who asks

Lauren and Liam

Benn was absolutely fantastic! From first contact he was so helpful and down to earth and made the whole process so easy. We had a very small wedding with just our immediate family present and the ceremony Benn put together for us was very personal, relaxed and suited us perfectly. He toughed it out for us on the day in the freezing cold and we had so much fun during the ceremony. I couldn’t recommend Benn highly enough! Thank you for being part of our day.

Amy and Paul

We had Benn as our celebrant for our wedding and could not be happier with his service. Benn was the first and only celebrant I met with because once we started talking about it all I could tell he knew what he was doing. When it came to the rehearsal - best thing we did all wedding. It calmed all our nerves and he ran the whole rehearsal, picked up on things that others could have simply missed. Honestly could not recommend him anymore! The way he helped us with our vows, really understood us as a couple and made the ceremony to fit our personalities. Thank you Benn, for truly making our ceremony everything it was!! You really set the tone for the wedding!

Lindsey and Drew


Benn was amazing from start to finish. He was professional but laid back and fun and we couldn’t have asked for more from a celebrant. The ceremony he wrote for us was perfect and suited us to a t. Benn was also our MC and DJ for the night and his energy was infectious. 100% would recommend Benn.

Sa and Daniel

Benn was the celebrant , MC and DJ at our wedding. If that wasn't enough work for him he even went above and beyond our expectation.There were a few hiccups with the catering and he just took over and handled the situation. BENN was perfect! He was very organised for the ceremony, everything we needed he had in his suitcase. He created a personal, fun and relaxing atmosphere. Our family and friends just adored him. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. Benn, thank you so much for being part of our special day!

Kate and Drew


We do just want to officially say a huge thank you to Benn, for not only assisting us in our special day as we became husband and wife, but for also being there for us every step of the way. Every email, phone call and concern was completely attended to and exceptionally fast! Professionalism, dedication and delivery of the ceremony was amazing and we just couldn't have chosen a better celebrant to share our special occasion with!.

Haley and Daniel

Hey Benn:)
Holy hell you did amazing. Everyone commented on how awesome you were and how intimate and cool our ceremony was. We loved every minute and wouldn't change a thing! You really complimented us and kept us at ease and made the whole thing really wonderful:)
Thanks a bunch xx

Steph and Julien

We were lucky enough to have Benn as our celebrant. He was so professional but also very relaxed, response to emails was prompt. We had an interstate wedding and again this was no troubles and even had Skype meetings. His charm and young approach to our ceremony made it unique and one to remember. Benn’s professionalism and attention to detail was outstanding. I had guest commenting on how amazing our ceremony was. He went that one extra mile which made our day one to remember.

Sarah and Phil

We want to thank you again for everything! Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and seamless, you helped to coordinate all the little details in between and make sure our reception ran perfectly - whilst making it all fun along the way!
We have had multiple comments on how smoothly the ceremony went and how organised and professional you were.
We can't thank you enough and will be sure to recommend to anyone and everyone!

Ellie and Zac

Thank you so much Benn!! Benn made the whole ceremony really special and fun. He was able to guide us and help every step of the way and each part of the process has been straight forward with Benn guiding us and helping us get all the elements to ceremony and paperwork stuff sorted! Thank you so much Benn!!

Nat and Tom

Absolutely outstanding! Benn we can’t thank you enough for being our celebrant and DJ at our wedding! You are professional, super easy going and wrote a ceremony that we will never forget!

Mairead and Lonnie 


Thanks again for our wonderful ceremony! It ended up being one of our favourite parts of the day and our family and friends loved it which meant a lot.

Cynthia and Tom


Benn is a truly exceptional marriage celebrant. Not only did he execute a flawless ceremony but he provided us with so much useful guidance and information leading up to the wedding. Preparing for a wedding was obviously quite a stressful time, but he really helped absorb some of that stress and calm the nerves. He took the time to understand us as a couple and the style of ceremony we wanted. In fact most of our wedding guests assumed we were friends of Benn because the ceremony was so personal. We could honestly not recommend Benn highly enough. He was such a critical part of the perfect day for us.

Anna and Nick

Benn absolutely killed our wedding ceremony! He was so relaxed (exactly what we wanted) and easy going. Everything ran so smoothly and everyone kept asking where we had known him from because they all assumed we were old friends. It really was just like having a friend perform our ceremony, he is amazing at his job and so glad he was there to celebrate with us. He even held our dog for photos

Katie and Callan

Benn, thank you so much for all you did as our celebrant. From the moment we met you – it was a non-negotiable that you would be the one to conduct our ceremony! You are incredibly kind, easy going, organised and patient, and your calm approach made us feel so comfortable. Our ceremony was personal, funny, modern and with the right touch of emotion!

A huge thank you also, for persevering through the pouring rain – your very genuine, number one concern was that our day was perfect, even if your iPad was sacrificed to the weather gods!

Alicia and Ian


We could not have had a more amazing day/night and Benn played a huge part in that.

As our celebrant, he was there for us in every way to answer questions, calm me down on arrival and our ceremony was absolutely perfect, it reflected us as a couple completely ... our guests also raved about him!

As our MC he made sure everything went smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a single thing for the entire night.

As our DJ .. WOW ... Benn knows how to work the room. Comments from our guests were "best dance floor ever at a wedding" and "your DJ nailed the vibe the whole night" .. thank you so much Benn, without you we know our day wouldn't have been complete

Rochelle and James

We were lucky enough to have Benn as our celebrant for our wedding in November. Benn was professional and kept his cool even when a few things didn't go to plan - such as moving the ceremony indoors at last minute due to bad weather. He told our story with charm and humour, guided us through the entire process and answered any questions we had in a timely manner. Thank you Benn, having you as our celebrant was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day.

Maki and Gary


Thank you very much Benn for everything you have done for us the most beautiful and brilliant day, we loved it!!
Our family and everyone enjoyed the wedding, I received so many compliments on it. Very much appreciated. Maki and Gary
