Hi. I'm Benjamin Black

LETS GET YOU MARRIED.

A combination of things led me to becoming a celebrant. Firstly, I was that friend who everyone asked to be MC. Secondly, as a successful personal trainer, I could fit another job into my schedule (and I love to be busy).

Thirdly, who doesn’t love a wedding?! It’s a day all about the pair of you. Surrounded by your favourite people, everyone looking dapper, there’s food, wine, dancing, GIFTS… but most importantly there's that palpable emotion, love and happiness felt by every single person there. So here we are. You just tell me your story, and I’ll say the magic words.

Now that Australia has finally come to the party, I am thrilled to offer my services to legally marry any two people.

ELOPEMENTS

If a big wedding isn’t your thing, you can ditch all the extras and have an intimate ceremony with only you guys, two witnesses, and myself.

Congratulations on your engagment.

I'm Ben.

meeting
Firstly, give me a call or email so we can arrange to meet somewhere for a coffee, beer or baked goods. We can discuss the process and some different ideas for your ceremony. I can plan it however you would like, whether chilled, sincere, light hearted, extravagant or surrounded by penguins. At the meeting we can also get a couple of documents knocked over. If you’re happy to go ahead, I’ll lock in your date once you have paid a deposit, and send you a questionnaire to help me personalise your ceremony.
The Ceremony
On the day, you just need to turn up looking dashing. I will provide a PA system, all of the paperwork, laughs, tears and palm cards for your vows. We can work together to cook up the perfect mix of songs, readings, stories and vows to reflect your own weird and wonderful personalities.
After Ceremony
I will lodge all documents at the government department on your behalf, to make everything official. From then on, the rest is up to the two of you.

“BEN thank you so much for marrying us. It was absolutely perfect. A perfect mix of soppy and funny. So much more personal than having the usual celebrant. Everyone commented on how lovely it was.”

“Thanks so much Ben! Everyone said how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We felt so relaxed with you and enjoyed meeting you immensely. Thanks for everything.”

Ben, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding even more magical than we could have dreamed. You were such a special part of our beautiful day and we are so grateful to you for creating a ceremony which was personal, warm, professional, serious, humorous and spiritual all at once.
