What if your celebrant could be your best friend?

 
 

Or your cheeky brother? Even your next-door neighbour with the heart of gold?

Good news - it can be!

My Celebrant Buddy arms whoever you choose with everything they need to be your celebrant. 

It’s all taken care of - legal requirements, ceremony paperwork, script revisions, expert guidance, ceremony templates, music guidance. The works.

They won’t need to study for a year and spend a fortune to get their licence.

All they'll need to do is get up there and nail your ceremony.

Plus they’ll be fully supported by me – Paul Bonadio - A Stand-up Celebrant. I'm in the fortunate position of being one of Melbourne's most popular celebrants #humblebrag

And at just $490 it's far, far cheaper than hiring an actual celebrant. It’s arguably the most exciting and affordable wedding alternative to the marriage registry #humblebrag2

You can roll the dice on a celebrant you don’t know. They could be good, or they could have tumbleweeds cartwheeling across the aisle.

Or you can have someone who’s always been there – someone who knows you best.

And someone who can create a ceremony no-one will ever forget.

  1. You’ll select who you want to perform at your ceremony (e.g. your bestie, your sister-in-law).

  2. Hit me up - then I’ll get you and your partner to fill out the NOIM (Notice of Intended Marriage) and shoot it through to me.

  3. I’ll email the person you choose to perform your ceremony with EVERYTHING they need.

  4. You, your partner, two witnesses and I will meet again in the week leading up to your ceremony to sign the documentation.

  5. Your celebrant buddy performs a commitment ceremony at your wedding. And NAILS it.

Note: I will not be physically present at your ceremony. The ceremony they perform will not be a legal one. All of the legal requirements are taken care of beforehand.

 

As a vastly experienced Celebrant I’m here to help your Celebrant Buddy!

Who completes all the legal requirements?

All legal paperwork and processes are taken care of beforehand by me, not the Melbourne marriage registry.

The ceremony you have on your wedding day will be a commitment ceremony (but your marriage will still be legally valid as all the legal requirements have been taken care of by me beforehand). 



What exactly is a commitment ceremony?

A commitment ceremony is more of a non-legal, public affirmation of a couple's commitment to one another. At such a ceremony, the words ‘wedding’ or ‘marriage’ must be avoided, and your celebrant must advise that all legal requirements have been taken care of prior.



Do you help with the script?

Yup you bet! I do two initial revisions. Each revision after that is $50 each. 



Paul will you physically be at our ceremony?

Nup - all the legal processes and documentation will be taken care of beforehand.
