Background

I am married with four grown up children who, along with my wife and myself, are all professional musicians. I have been a music and history teacher in Victoria for 35 years including eight years as Director of Music at one of Melbourne’s best known secondary school music programs in the eastern suburbs.

I am a member of the Saxton’s Speaker’s Bureau and have worked in every state of Australia and also overseas as a stand-up or roving entertainer for many corporate functions, dinners and business functions using magic and comedy in most presentations. I have been fortunate to perform in Brunei for the birthday of the daughter of the Sultan of Brunei and to tour Australia with Rolf Harris giving business presentations for a well - known paint company. I was also the resident magician at the Stamford Hotel in Melbourne for three years.

Marriage Celebrant

I am now a full time Marriage Celebrant. I enjoy the interaction that I have with people of all ages, races, beliefs and religions. I consider it not only a privilege to be involved in what is surely one of the most memorable days in anyone’s life, but also an honour.

I look forward to every new marriage ceremony with excitement because there are no two weddings that are ever exactly the same. Every marriage ceremony is different because people are different. It is my aim to provide you with the type of ceremony that you want. It is your special day, and your ceremony should reflect your personalities, wants and wishes. Together we work as a team to create a ceremony that is not only memorable but totally unique for everyone involved – the bridal couple, family and guests.

I am fairly relaxed and easy going in my approach to the ceremony and I enjoy the lighter moments that occur during the ceremony as well as the more formal moments. I aim to create and deliver a comfortable, relaxed and dignified ceremony that both you and your guests will enjoy.

I am willing to perform your ceremony anywhere in Victoria or interstate.

Resource Material

You will receive a Wedding Ceremony Folder which contains lots of ideas to assist you in the planning of your ceremony including readings, vows, and the use of other symbols to express your love for each other. (Celtic Hand fasting, candle ceremony, ring warming to name a few)

Interviews

I am very happy to come to your residence to conduct interviews and plan your wedding ceremony. Alternatively, if it is more convenient you may decide to come to me instead.
