Congratulations! How important is it to you that on your wedding day that your celebrant will foster a relaxed atmosphere for both the bride and groom, family and friends? I was initially inspired to become a wedding celebrant when I attended my niece's wedding on a summers day in a garden setting in Balwyn and admired the way the celebrant conducted himself. He engaged the audience and spoke with a lot of warmth, passion and humour. During the ceremony, I whispered in my wife's ear. '' I'd love to do that''. Several months later I was travelling overseas with my wife and I bumped into an artist who was painting a picture of the 'Salisbury Cathedral' in the UK. I commented on the picture and praised him for his efforts. The artist replied ''it is better to have tried than to not have tried at all''. It was then the penny dropped and I started to pursue my passion to become a wedding celebrant. Since being a wedding celebrant I have discovered that I love telling a couple's story of how and where they met and why they love each other. Their personal story of their life together makes the day special for the bride, groom, family and friends. By telling the couple's story it engages all who attend. My easy going manner will encourage the bride and groom to be relaxed and to have fun. With a touch of humour and an understanding of how special the moment is, will guarantee that your ceremony will be a day to remember. I strive to create your style, your needs, your vows, your words and your setting for your ceremony. If you're interested in my services then please send me an email enquiry or phone for a personal home visit at a time to suit you both.

As a young, modern, and friendly celebrant, I work with you to co-create a personalised, meaningful ceremony, whatever the occasion. I specialise in marriage ceremonies, but also perform commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows and name-giving ceremonies. In terms of marriage ceremonies, I believe weddings are about the joining of two people, two lives. Your wedding should be an authentic expression of who you are - your love for each other, your hopes and dreams, your shared values and visions. The shape your ceremony takes should be up to you. I always feel so honoured to be a part of such a significant occasion! The choice of celebrant is very personal and each celebrant can offer you something different in creating your own personalised ceremony. Make sure you feel comfortable with your celebrant and that you can communicate openly with each other. Always aim for the best person to help you plan and perform the exact marriage ceremony that YOU want. After all, your wedding day is about YOU, not the celebrant... Planning your perfect ceremony and wedding day should be memorable and I would be delighted to be a part of your planning process - enjoy this special time and savour every magical moment!

My name is Mary Langan and I have been a registered Civil Marriage Celebrant since 2008. As a celebrant I also conduct naming ceremonies, commitment ceremonies, significant birthdays and vow renewals. I was attending the wedding of my nephew which was being held at home in their garden and as I listened to their celebrant I thought to myself “I would love to do that” and a few months later I had done my course and was a registered celebrant. There is great joy in helping a couple put together a ceremony, offering advice and listening to their special wishes. A celebrant is really there to tell your story and to engage your guests so they feel part of the celebration. I am a friendly outgoing person and have recently re-married after being widowed for 7 years.

Maria McCarthy – Authorised Civil Celebrant
Phone: 0419 521 643 | Servicing all areas
I became a marriage celebrant for a combination of reasons. Firstly, I am from a large family where my parents have recently celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary. Their commitment to their marriage and six children, through good times and bad, has instilled in me the importance of commitment, respect and love within a family unit. Next, I think societies reap the benefits of family life from the constancy it provides along with support and security. Lastly, marrying late in my life enabled me to bring a lot of life experience (both as a single person and as a married woman) to a couple and their ceremony. Our marriage celebrant had the same way of thinking and helped make the day unforgettable. As a civil celebrant I provide first-rate customer service to my clients as followings: Recognising the social, cultural and legal significance of marriage and the marriage ceremony in the Australian community; Complying with the Marriage Act 1961 and other laws; Being pro-active with new suggestions; Being reliable; and giving the couple what they wish for! Some History: My career has spanned the design, film, television and education industries. I was managing director of my own architectural commercial and domestic lighting company for many years. A career change saw me move into film and television production, working for high-profile Australian production outfits. After a serious car accident in 1997, I used my recovery experiences to help others to deal with the effects of trauma, illness and injury by creating a rehabilitation program in conjunction with a Melbourne psychologist and physician. This program required me to make numerous appearances on national radio and television; and work on the public speaking circuit both locally and internationally. Then in 2007 I married my partner of twelve years and the experience inspired me to train as a marriage celebrant and gave me an insight into what creates a joyous, unique and intimate wedding ceremony.
