Nine out of ten dentists agree that I’m the best celebrant
Hi, my name is Josh, I’m a gadget-obsessed-nerd and Foo Fighters fan living on the Gold Coast, married to Britt, my spectacular wife, and a father to Luna, and we have the great honour of travelling this vast planet celebrating that marvellous union called marriage. We’re just two kids in love interested in other kids in love. I perform weddings in Brisbane, on the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Sydney, Melbourne, and around the globe!
That’s my story, what’s yours?
Let’s chat in person or on Skype to make sure I’m the right guy to create and lead your awesome wedding ceremony ✌🏼 and to get information on my fees and packages, it’s all available in my information pack which you can get at the bottom of this page.
I’m the celebrant you hire if the marriage ceremony is the best and most important part of your wedding!
Loads of fun
Short and sweet
Weddings traditionally just go on and on and on and on. I don’t think weddings should be quick, but they should take as long as it takes to celebrate your marriage, and not a moment more. Everyone’s different, so your ceremony could take 18 minutes or a day.
Awesome PA system
Apparently most celebrants have terrible microphones and PA systems. Mine is a Bose professional system, awesome, modern, loud, clear, reliable, battery operated and wireless. There’s a zero percent chance of it not working at your wedding, and even less of a chance of everyone not hearing everything. Unless you’re Ozzy Osbourne.
All about marriage
I am all about marriage. I think it’s the best thing two people can do together, except for two player GoldenEye 64. I don’t care as much about traditions, or the way it’s supposed to be, as much as I care about making a moment that celebrates the two of you.
The Rebel’s Guide To Getting Married
Every day at work for me sees couples in love, just like the two of you, stressing out over things that don’t matter as much as they seem. Sometimes its family getting in the way, or friends thinking they are helpful. Workmates with great ideas, or Pinterest boards that don’t match your wage.
Whatever is causing you stress in your wedding planning, I wanted to influence that process and make this whole wedding planning extravaganza mean something to you, so I started The Rebel’s Guide To Getting Married! Regular podcasts, videos, and blogs to help you get married with purpose!
What is a marriage celebrant?
A marriage celebrant is the person that speaks at your wedding ceremony. In some countries that person is called an officiant, or if it was religious in nature, a priest or a minister. In Australia a celebrant is appointed by the federal government to legally marry people according to the law. They’re also in charge of the laughs, and the meaning, of the moment in time you passthrough to become a married couple.
We eloped to Tasmania with Josh as our wedding celebrant and I could not recommend him more. He took the time to get to know us before hand, both face to face and over the phone in the lead up to the day and as a result the ceremony was distinctly ‘us’. Josh really engages everyone, our loved ones commented that they felt apart of what was happening which is exactly what we wanted. Josh gave us a modern and inclusive ceremony, that celebrated us and everything that is special about what we have. Thanks Josh!
We met Josh 2 years before our wedding day, newly engaged and no idea how to plan a wedding we headed to our first wedding expo, among all the vendors, flowers, photographers and celebrents was this guy that made us laugh, instantly we said “this is our guy!!!” He was bright, happy and said shit!, not your normal boring celebrant.
On our journey to making the perfect day, Josh was the first thing I booked, I did not want to have our day officiated by anyone else and needed to make sure I had him locked in first. Our Gold Coast wedding ceremony was perfect, it could not have been more us, it was relaxed and funny with lots of love and laughs. If you are looking for a celebrant that makes you feel important not just another job or someone that involves everyone and makes everyone happy and relaxed Josh is your man!
