About Me


Tony’s Comments

Me, Myself and I!
Husband, father, grandfather and a people-person with both a sense of humour and a sense of occasion. My earlier career includes positions as Executive Director of the United Nations Association, Director of my own businesses in international trade, and in communication training in presentation skills for the corporate sector. I am also a lecturer to students and practising marriage celebrants in colleges and universities.

As Your Celebrant!
Former Secretary of the Association of Civil Marriage Celebrants of Victoria Inc and a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants Inc., I am committed to ongoing professional development, regularly attending celebrant workshops, seminars, meetings and conferences and I search the world for wedding ceremony ideas plus cultural, religious and traditional values that could be incorporated into your ceremony.

Your Special Ceremony!
I encourage you to include your own ideas and wishes in your ceremony. You may like to write your own vows, select the music and readings, choose who is to participate and in what role. Take from resources I supply or compose your entire ceremony yourself.

Certificate Choices!
You have a choice of the style and print of your Certificate of Marriage, Certificates of Appreciation for your wedding party and others you wish to recognise. Should you choose ‘handfasting’ as part of your ceremony then a beautiful Celtic design Handfasting Certificate can be provided.

Marvellous Marriages are Made in Melbourne!
Australian weddings are the envy of the world. You can have your ceremony pretty much wherever, whenever and however you choose. Popular venues in Melbourne include beautiful parks & gardens, the Zoo, reception centres, romantic chapels, Dandenong Ranges, Yarra Valley, Puffing Billy steam train, historic wineries, Mornington Peninsula, lovely beaches, stately homes, Tram restaurant, bay and river cruises, bed and breakfasts, hotels, motels, restaurants or at home.

Prospective Spouse Visas!
I am conversant with Australian Immigration requirements and specialise in the needs of those whose prospective spouses are applying for a Visa to come to Australia to marry an Australian citizen or resident. I can save you a lot of time, trouble and heartache by providing the right information and paperwork to assist you in this special service.
