Epic ceremonies for adventurous people
I believe that your ceremony should be, and can be, the best part of your wedding!
There’s no reason why your wedding shouldn’t be the best wedding ever, because its celebrating the fact that you are loved. It’s not about having a wedding, it’s about being married
Your Search is Over
I’m Josh Withers, a civil marriage celebrant, and I create the world’s best marriage ceremonies. My wife Britt and I also create elopements with The Elopement Collective, plus I train and mentor Australia’s best celebrants at The Celebrant Institute. We’ve got two little girls and we live on the beach at the Gold Coast. Despite living in paradise I also travel the country and the globe every week to create marriage ceremonies for adventurous people just like you.
I believe your wedding ceremony can be, and should be, the best part of your wedding!
I’m legally authorised to marry people in America, Canada, and Australia, and when I create marriage ceremonies in other countries we’ll often perform the legal parts in Australia before we leave.
I believe a wedding should be
Simple & Significant
+ Wedding guests
Call me a nerd, but I think that great sound and video isn’t that hard. I know most celebrants don’t put any effort into their wireless PA system, but I do. I’ll also create a 4K wedding film so everyone that wasn’t there can enjoy it as if they were.
I’m not just your celebrant on the day of your wedding, I’m here recommending vendors, venues, suppliers, and creatives that can help craft your wedding. I’m available for advice, support, information, and coffee at anytime between now and your wedding. I’m your wedding BFF.
It’s important for your wedding ceremony to be a human, organic, flexible moment. It’s full of all the feels, the reality of dragging your favourite humans into the same space, and there’s going to be stuff going on. I’m responsive to the atmosphere, not delivering some perfectly scripted prose that ignores what is happening in front of us. So I ditch the script and speak from my heart. I know you both so well and my ceremony reflects that.
Your marriage matters, your marriage ceremony matters, and I put all of my heart, mind, body, and soul into it. If it’s not going to be the best day ever, let’s call the whole thing off.
I’m available to do your legal paperwork, create your marriage ceremony, and also create an epic wedding reception as your master of ceremonies and even your DJ.
I believe your marriage should be
Better than your wedding
Ready to Rock
For a moment that is only the beginning
I believe there’s a better way to marry, with meaning and purpose. In strength and purity, bringing together the right people, for one moment, where we cheer you on into your life as a married couple.
At the very heart of what I do is a deep and strong belief in the art and the act of marriage. Not thinking that marriage is some kind of black magic, or a magical cure for our human ills, but in the art of coming together we reach our truest selves. In the art of being loved we discover that all of the work prior to now was just preparation for this work, the work of loving and being loved.
I believe that in marriage we become our best selves.
I think your marriage ceremony is a space for that transformation to happen.
Get in touch to arrange a time to meet, online or in-person. My best advice is to plan your wedding around your team, then find a date that works, but if you’ve already selected a date, let me know and I’ll see if we can make it work.
