What is included in each package is a common question I get asked?
Put simply, the Basic Package is a simple ceremony with legal's and a short ceremony. This is a common package option for small intimate weddings or elopements. The silver package includes all legal's and a ceremony with PA hire but no option of the inclusion of a personally written ‘Love Story’, which comes with the Gold Package only.
Step By Step Process
1. 'Nomination of Intention to Marriage' (NOIM) is completed one month prior to the solemnisation of your marriage (or no earlier than 18 months before your big day). We can do this together during our initial face-to-face meeting or you can complete this, have it witnessed and sent to me, whichever is easier.
2. A resource kit with all handy information is forwarded to all of my couples to start working through and deciding what to include in your ceremony. The kit includes suggestions on wording, traditions, rituals, writing vows etc..
3. Deposit of $200 will be requested to lock in your wedding date. The remaining balance is required no later than 7 days prior to your official wedding date.
4. A draft of your ceremony will be prepared and forwarded to you for approval prior to your wedding date. We can make several changes if we need to so that it’s just perfect for your big day!
5. Two weeks prior to your wedding we will meet again to complete the 'No Legal Impediment to Marriage' form (the last of your legal's before your wedding) or commonly this can be signed on your wedding day, as long as we do this before the ceremony takes place. (Hey, I have been known to casually slip away without anyone noticing to meet brides at the wedding car or bridal suite to get their signature before they walk down the aisle). Again, whatever is easier for you! I get how stressful everything can be for couples to find the time to get everything sorted.
6. A rehearsal can be included should one be required (additional charges may be incurred - please ask if you think you'll need one)
7. On your wedding day I generally arrive between 45mins – 1 hour before the ceremony, set up and ensure everything is ready to go. I like to familarise myself with the setting, run through the ceremony and complete a sound check before your guests' arrival.
Other things to know;
Playing Music – you are welcome to use my PA system to play music but will need to ensure all songs are mp3 formatted. It is strongly encouraged that you drag your mp3 music onto your USB in the order you would like them to play and label them 001, 002, 003 etc… As I cannot play music for you during the ceremony and conduct the ceremony at the same time you will need to organise somebody to cue your music for you throughout the ceremony. I will happily give them a crash course in how to use the system so that it runs smoothly.
Signing Table – a simple dressed signing table with 2 x Americana wedding chairs can be available should one be required.
MC Services – MC packages are also available for $800 with a ceremony package or stand alone for $1,200.
Includes initial meeting, writing of the ceremony, and performance on the day. Travel is included in the price within 100 km radius.
Baby Naming Day ceremonies are a great way to introduce your baby, the name you have given them, godparents and grandparents to share in a special ceremony for your baby. Services are personally prepared and conducted upon request.
I look forward to working with you, helping to make your special day one to remember.
Honestly we can not thank you enough Glenn, you definitely made it so easy and really exciting in the lead up to and on our wedding day!

Glenn made our wedding day magical. I started the week of our wedding with the sad news my grandfather had passed away and Glenn was very empathetic, understanding and flexible with his time. He sat with me through tears while we wrote a tribute to my pop for the ceremony. On the day Glenn kept us calm and made our ceremony so much fun. It was very heartfelt and all our guests commented on how amazing our celebrant was and that they really felt like he took the time to get to know us well as a couple and individually. He helped us through the writing of our vows and through juggling living in Melbourne and getting Married in Sydney. from the bottom of our hearts we thank you so much Glenn. It truely was the most amazing day of our lives and something we will never forget.

I work at a wedding venue in Camden, Sydney and can highly recommend Glenn’s services.
He arrived in plenty of time, was set up quickly, and performed a professional yet relaxed ceremony for the couple. Plus, his PA system was loud enough for all to hear but not so big and bulky that it invaded the ceremony area - definite bonus points!
Glenn worked with me to create a seamless experience for the couple and their guests, I’m looking forward to working with him again in the future.

I went to my nephew’s wedding yesterday. Glenn was the celebrant and the MC and did a brilliant job at both. Glenn set the tone for wonderful, magical day. He interpreted Clare and Simon’s love story in a true and beautiful way sometimes funny sometimes heartfelt. He contributed to the best wedding I have ever attended.
I was at a wedding were Glenn was the celebrant and then the MC. He was amazing for both. Such a friendly and professional person.

He is simply THE BEST!
Glenn celebrates LOVE and that’s what what you can clearly see in his ceremony’s.
Glenn married us, my husband and I, in October 14th 2017. He is very professional and very detailed. At our wedding anniversary’s he does the sweetest thing and sends a Anniversary message. We love Glenn and hardly recommend him to anyone! ❤️
Glenn is the perfect celebrant! We clicked immediately and knew without a doubt he was the celebrant for us. Glenn put together the perfect ceremony for my new wife and I and we could not imagine anyone else officiating our ceremony. Glenn is warm, friendly and professional and we can’t thank him enough for the important role he played in our wedding day! We have had so many family and friends comment on how beautiful our ceremony was! Thanks again Glenn! You are amazing and we can’t thank you enough!!

Shout out to a few people who helped with our big day: Our celebrant @sydneycelebrantglenn thank you for guiding us through the process and making it simple and stress free.
Love this guy!
You were such a friendly and comforting vision to see at the bottom of the aisle. Will always be grateful for that Glenn.
An amazing celebrant who tailored our ceremony around our theme. Incredibly easy to work with and has the ability to make your ceremony unique and personalised for you. Thank you Glenn for making our day special and one to remember.
If I could give Glenn 10 stars I would. Glenn was the best Celebrant you could ever ask for, he would fully explain the whole process with your consideration and input. He provided everything we wanted, made us feel so comfortable and confident, Glenn’s was very professional. Thank you Glenn for all you have done.
First of all, I just wanted to say thank you very much for coming all the way to Plumpton to marry us. I am very honoured, thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to have you as our marriage celebrant. You were very understanding and patient throughout the process. You were very clear the whole way and explained to us what was going on and what would happen. I don't know how to thank you enough. You're amazing!
I would highly recommend Glenn as your marriage celebrant! It was one of the most memorable and exciting day of my life that I will always remember, 06/02/18.
We highly recommend Glenn as a marriage celebrant. From the first time we met him at the coffee shop, we could tell that he had our best interests at heart. His efforts to arrange and reassure us through a few logistical issues was a highly appreciative. The ceremony on the day was highly respectful, and received praise for its uniqueness and intimacy.
Fun, passionate, professional and entertaining celebrant. I recommend him to everyone!!
Glenn went above and beyond to make sure my baby girls naming day was perfect. Even though he and his wife had had a baby only a week ago, he still made the time to come and see us, go through the script and spent the morning presenting our baby girl to our family. Professional, organised yet down to earth, Glenn is a top guy and will make your special one to remember.
Thank you so much Glenn.
Glenn is the perfect celebrant! He has the talent to tailor your wedding ceremony to being personal and professional. I recommend his service to anyone who wishes to have a beautiful ceremony with that special magical and emotional atmosphere that Glenn creates.
