Choosing a Marriage Celebrant

Congratulations. What an exciting time lies ahead for you both.

Choosing a Marriage Celebrant is the beginning of the next stage of your relationship. And such an important one. You need a celebrant who will listen and respond accordingly and focus their attention on you and your partner.

Hello – My name is Judy Allen, I live in Bayside Melbourne and I love weddings. Each wedding is very special and unique and it must be about you. I can bring experience and understanding around the delivery of your ceremony and hope we can have a laugh along the way. This is your ceremony, your words, wishes and thoughts. We will work together to craft a personalised ceremony that reflects you both. We want this to be a moment in time you, your family and friends can reflect and look back on with joy.

My commitment to you is to listen to you:

to help you formalise the dream you may have for your special day.

to work with you to produce your ceremony, one that suits your personalities and dreams.

to reflect the bond and love you share that has bought you to this exciting time and place in your relationship.

to honour and respect your dreams and thoughts.

to help you create that special moment for your family and friends to share.

My promise to you is I will only arrange one wedding per day on a weekend, so allowing you the comfort of knowing my attention is with you for the day. Wedding season, September to April can be very busy so please plan ahead and make your booking as soon as possible.


My fees depend on the type of ceremony you are considering: A non-refundable booking fee of $250 is required to lock in your date (I only book one wedding per day), your rehearsal date, meetings and commencement of the legal paperwork. All other fees and charges are required one month prior to your wedding date. Should your wedding be outside metropolitan Melbourne additional fees may be required for travel.


Creative Ceremony

Commit to each other in front of your family and friends with a ceremony crafted by me using your words and wishes. Let everyone know what love means to you and how the person you are marrying means so much to you and what you mean to each other. All the legals will be taken care of and I will work with your photographer to ensure the best photos possible on the day.

Elopement Ceremony

This type of ceremony is short and simple with the couple and two witnesses over the age of 18 attending to the legal elements of a marriage. It can be anywhere you chose – the beach, a restaurant, your garden or mine. Although it is really only dealing with the legals make it romantic and something to remember.

Destination Weddings

Not everyone wants to be married locally and I am happy to discuss how a wedding could be created in a wonderful romantic location. The destination will determine the availability and cost of my service – but please ask if this is the way you would like your ceremony to be.


Testimonials from some of my couples

Annabel and James

Judy, thank you for your help in organising our beautiful wedding ceremony, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect service. We were so happy to have shared our special day with you! We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into our ceremony and giving us the freedom to make it exactly what we wanted. Thank you for making our wedding day perfect

Julia and Devlin

Judy is a friendly and bubbly lady that helped us to build the perfect wedding ceremony to depict us. She was open to meeting our specific needs with a very different ceremony that included our children. Her ongoing communication was always prompt and informative in the development of our special day. I would highly recommend her services. Thanks a million Judy :-)

Katie and Robbie

Thank you (again!) so much for playing such an important part of our wedding day! It was wonderful that so many people remarked that they really felt that you had taken the time to get to know both Robbie and I which I feel really reflects on your commitment to providing the best ceremony possible for your couples, as well as making the ceremony itself seem much more familiar and less staged. The suggestions you provided during our pre-wedding meetings and conducting a rehearsal the day beforehand were received with thanks and helped the day itself run so smoothly

Diana and Sean

Thank you very much Judy for being our celebrant on Saturday. Your presentation was beautiful and we really appreciated everything you did for us in making the day even more special. Everything was very professionally organised, we enjoyed your innovation, resources and your ability to think quickly and adapt to the environment. Delivery was on point and overall, the whole ceremony ran flawlessly. It is obvious that you are extremely passionate in your work.

Lauren and Scott

We could not have been happier to have had Judy as our celebrant. She is relaxed, relatable and was helpful every step of the way. Many of our guests spoke very positively of her after the wedding – we couldn’t recommend her service more. Thanks so much Judy!

Amber and Chris

Words cannot describe what a pleasure it was to have Lovely Judy as our celebrant. Everything was perfect , from the initial organizing to our special day. Great celebrants are hard to find, however we found an outstanding one - Judy - thank you so much for making our wedding day that extra special for us.
