Congratulations! You're taking those first steps toward your wedding vows, and your wedding vows are the first step on a journey that will last the rest of your lives, that will lead you to the most amazing places and that will offer you experiences you could never possibly imagine.


Equally heartfelt congratulations to you if you are in a same-sex relationship and are now, finally, allowed the same considerations that you have always deserved, the right to marry the person that you love, regardless of whether you are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or trans-sexual, et al. That Taoist principle above was placed there when I first began as a Celebrant and the truth of it is so pertinent now. . . . the long journey to same-sex weddings and Marriage Equality is over, we have taken the final steps of a very long journey. It is not about the journey, however, but about the destination, and once we have finally reached that destination, the right for every member of the LGBT community to have a same-sex wedding, please, contact me and together we can finally make your dream of a same-sex marriage to the person you love an actual reality.


I've spent my life offering people memorable experiences filled with smiles, laughter and fond memories. As a Cairns Marriage Celebrant, I promise to provide you with a ceremony, and wedding vows, that are both thoughtful, professional, and most of all, memorable.

As a Marriage Celebrant I don't limit myself to conducting ceremonies in beautiful locations like Port Douglas, Townsville, Mission Beach, the Tablelands, Cape Tribulation, Fitzroy Island or The Daintree Forest. Oh no, I'm available to conduct your ceremony anywhere in Australia.

As your Cairns Celebrant, I offer the following services:

  • We need to have an initial meeting, if only to see that we're a good fit for each other. You have to be sure that I'm the right Cairns Celebrant to conduct your ceremony for you.

  • Completion and lodging of the Notice of Intended Marriage, provided our initial meeting goes well, of course.

  • As many calls, emails, texts and meetings as may be required to ensure that your ceremony truly reflects your love, beliefs and commitment toward each other. I'll provide a template ceremony and my Ceremony Resource folder to help with this and will also help you to tweak it where required until you're satisfied with the end result and we have the perfect wedding vows.

  • One final meeting prior to the ceremony to complete legalities and, if required, have a rehearsal or run-through to ensure that every body knows who's expected where, when and what they'll have to say.

  • I'll prepare all the legal documentation and ensure that it is submitted to the BDM after the ceremony to register your wedding.

  • After the ceremony I present you with a Ceremonial Certificate and a printed copy of your whole ceremony, from start to finish.


I also provide a signing table and a wireless, Bluetooth compatible, PA system and wireless microphone. I do my ceremony from a tablet which connects to my PA via Bluetooth, allowing me to control the music so that you, and everyone else, have one less thing to worry about on the day.


Contact me today and find out how I can make your wedding ceremony, and your wedding vows, the most memorable moment of your life.



I sincerely look forward to hearing from you.


Kind regards


… suave, dignified and professional … Tim, we are so rapt we found YOU to make the magic happen on our divine wedding day…. immaculately groomed, upstanding … wonderful intonation, and you captured the essence of our day to a tee. Marion and myself consider you a dear friend, and we wish you every success in your chosen profession ... you are the perfect celebrant for any couples that wish for a touch of class on their special day.

It was an absolute pleasure to be married by Tim. We wanted a fun, relaxed and meaningful ceremony that celebrated the decade of love we had shared and Tim delivered it perfectly. For things even we didn't know quite how to put into words, Tim knew exactly what, when and how to say it to ensure that our wedding represented us and honoured what we were, as well as what we were to become. Also, if I may say so, he is extremely eloquent and very snappily dressed. Thank you!
