I was meeting up with one of my couples the other day in a cafe, because well it was a morning meeting and we all need our morning coffee right! Shameless plug for Cleanskin at Bald Hills … great coffee boys!

It just happened that one of the couple’s friends was studying hard on her laptop at the big communal table that I had plonked myself down at waiting for my couple to arrive. After their big hellos, we got stuck into our wedding chat.

We were chatting away and after all the official wedding talk, we ended up in a shared conversation with their friend too. When she mentioned her friend is a celebrant, of course I enquired as to the name of her friend. It wasn’t anyone I had heard off, but after checking out his website, I thought he was a bit of a cool young male marriage celebrant worthy of having a mention in this post.

The cool young male marriage celebrant is a bit of a rare breed in the wedding industry, but got me thinking of who the actual young male celebrants were … que blog post!

These young male celebrants are shaking up the wedding industry by creating personalised and authentic ceremonies for their couples. They are bringing a hip youthful style to match their weddings – some even creating a following through their wooden bowtie collection!

If a celebrant can create a fun and engaging experience for the couple and their wedding guests, that means there is going to be great reactions, expressions and emotions – great moments for your wedding photographer to capture!

Okay let’s do it – my all time favourite, and who I consider to be the top 5 male marriage celebrants trail blazing with their messages of authentic love and marriage ceremonies around Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Byron Bay and Northern NSW …





Here goes with my top 5 male marriage celebrants list !!

The above are some of the most recommended marriage celebrants taking the ceremony stage around Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Byron Bay each and every weekend (and some weekdays). But Im adding my couples friend’s referral even though I only just heard of him the other day and that he is fairly new to the wedding scene, but going by his website, I am sure he is a marriage celebrant to watch over the coming year so check out David Webber too.
