We’ve all been to too many over the top, traditional, longwinded ceremonies. I won’t deliver anything like that

Melbourne Young Celebrant

south east Melbourne celebrant
My name is Russ and I am an authorised celebrant…you no doubt know that by the time you’ve landed on my site. I bring a few elements that set me apart from most celebrants, namely…
  • A modern take
  • A writing background which will see me delve a little deeper for the juicy/interesting bits of your relationship and history together
  • A chilled, relaxed energy. You’ve got more than enough to stress about for this day. I won’t be one of those stresses.
  • Over a decade of events experience for you to draw on
I’m based in the south-east of Melbourne (Mount Waverley) and am up for facilitating weddings and commitment ceremonies all over Melbourne. I am totally LGBT friendly and a big believer that we in Australia are living in the dark ages on the marriage equality front. signature

Sound like the kinda celebrant you’d like facilitating your big day?

Hit me up!
If we do this I’ll be finding out lots and lots about you 2, so here’s the lowdown on your prospective celebrant…

I’m half Aussie, half Pacific islander (Kiribati)


I worked as a club DJ around Melbourne for 10 years spinning hiphop, funk, disco, house, breakbeat, techno and more


I met my wife (Ang) on a dancefloor of an infamous Melbourne nightclub back in 2004 (as seen on my home page here)


I’m a bit of a health and fitness nut


I’ve been happily married since 2006 when we got married on Brighton Beach


I am addicted to sneakers, with a collection rapidly heading to 100

Whenever I eat out the first thing I look for on the menu is a parma.

Fatboy Slim, Axwell, Naughty by Nature, Groove Armada, Hilltop Hoods, De La Soul, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Sneak, Duck Sauce – these are just some of the artists I’ve interviewed over the past decade as a freelance music journo


I was featured as a DJ on the rise on Triple J back in 2007

I have 3 beautiful children – Lilah (3) and Coby and Siella (twin 18 month olds) who keep me on my toes
