Regular contributor and friend of the site, Maree Livvy offers us a few pointers to help with the search for a marriage celebrant.
‘We’ve found an amazing wedding venue in the Yarra Valley, and a fabulous photographer. Gosh, we now need somebody to marry us!’
Sounds familiar? Of course, if there is no celebrant, there is no wedding!
Where do you find a (really great) celebrant in the Yarra Valley?
It’s important to find the right celebrant for you as that person will make a huge difference between a ho-hum ceremony and a wow ceremony.
As with most things in life, it’s always good to ask your friends or family first.
Have they have been to a wedding where there was a memorable celebrant (in a good way!) You may also hear some bad stories too!!
This can also be helpful as it is just as important to know what you want, as well as what you don’t want, from your celebrant.
No suggestions? Many Yarra Valley venues have a list of preferred suppliers. These include professional, experienced wedding celebrants.
A venue would not risk their reputation if their suppliers weren’t of a very high standard.
Recommended celebrants are often based close to, or in the Yarra Valley. They know the local area and have celebrated weddings at many venues around the Yarra Valley. They are familiar with many venues, the layout, the wedding coordinators, and the procedures. It’s the little things that make the difference.
Grab their contact details, check out their website and give them a call.
Need more options? You could do a web search for celebrants in the Yarra Valley. There are some websites that are dedicated solely to celebrants. Some include individual photos or some brief information about their approach and process. It is here that you can gauge an idea of their style. They may have a link to their website.
Read through the information – this should always be an accurate reflection of a celebrant. Like what you see and read? Get in touch with them. Great celebrants are often booked up to 2 years in advance.

Yarra Valley Wedding Celebrant
Let’s discuss what you want in your wedding ceremony.
I am based in North Ringwood, so the Yarra Valley is practically my backyard! I have celebrated many weddings in the Yarra Valley region.
I love the venues, the landscape, the people, the food and the wine.
