Hey there! I’m Monty. Or Kingy. Or “Hey you, over there in the bushes!”
I’m a Commonwealth registered marriage celebrant (obviously) that thinks that your ceremony shouldn’t be a chore that your favourite people have to endure, just to get to the good stuff. It should be the good stuff! The springboard into an epic day that no one will ever forget. A ceremony filled with laughs and tears, cheers and good times.
Need a celebrant to stand up the front and tell everyone what marriage is? You do? Bugger. That’s not what I do. I want to tell your story. I want to tell your peeps how you met, where you’re at and what’s up next. It should be all about you, without all the fluff.
In the lead up to the big day, we talk when we need to talk, and when we don’t – well – I’ll leave you to work out which relatives to leave off the guest list, or what colour your socks should be on the day.
And this should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway. Love is for everyone. If you’re a human adult that’s able to get married and wants to get married – then bloody hell, let’s make that happen.
And one more thing – sometimes “hilarious” Uncle Barry isn’t the best choice to MC your reception. Sometimes your guests might just want to be guests and not be put to work. Give me a holler about MCing too.
And if all of that hasn’t convinced you, check out my Insta. I reckon that’ll make or break it 😉
This has been my TED talk. Thanks for listening.
