Seeking recommendations for a Marriage Celebrant in the ACT

By MissGen 9 January 2012 22

My partner and I plan to get married at the beginning of next year and are looking for a  celebrant.

Looking online there are a vast number of possibilities – but how do we know any are good?

We don’t have any specific religious persuasions but don’t really want to end up with any crazy new-age stuff either.

We plan to go do the “wedding fair” thing and see if we can meet a few, but are wondering if any Rioters can recommend anyone who they have used recently (i.e. in the last year or so)?

I noticed a previous post and wanted to see if anyone has any more recent experience with one.

Grateful for any assistance anyone can provide 🙂

Hi Rioters – An oldie but a goodie thread and still a relevant question for 2017/2018.
First of all, a big congrats on deciding to get hitched! And secondly, I thought I’d throw my hat in the ring here as a modern, fun, young(ish) Canberra-based celebrant. I’m all about creating wedding ceremonies that are authentic, memorable and a real celebration of the two of you – your relationship, your love, your sense of commitment and totally your style. You can have a stalky stalk and get in touch via my website (, Instagram (@shannonoheir_celebrant) or on Facebook (@shannonoheir.celebrant). Happy celebrant hunting!

Another vote for Lorraine Bird. She really was fantastic throughout the whole planning stage and we received lots of complements on the ceremony from friends and family. We had been to lots of weddings in Canberra with lots of different celebrants but choose Lorraine after seeing her do a fantastic job at a cousin’s wedding. Strongly recommended.
