Look at you, you big, gorgeous, loved-up lunatics!
We want your Wedding to be just as dreamy as you do - regardless of how you're doing the day! We've worked on a few different packages to make sure we have something to fill all those hungry-for-fun bods to the fullest. (Cause, we like fun too.)
If you don't see what you're looking for, get in touch! We'd love to do a Dumbledore and make something all nice and magicy together.
Hey, it's YOU!
I was hoping you might mosey on over...
You’re those couple’a spunks that want to tie the knot because you’re crazy in love (and a little weird in general). The two laid back lovers - full of laughs, great banter and Margs on a Wednesday night. Just like magic, your idea of romance isn’t always extravagant, but often kept safe in the small gestures.
“HECK YEAH!” I hear you scream, as you wave your gorgeous arms to and fro.
It sounds like you want a fun ceremony. A little something that takes on the character of your relationship and sums up your story. Authentic, emotional, relatable and just a bit worn around the edges.
I’ve got news for you - it’s me!
I’m Loz - a Civil Marriage Celebrant, nestled in Newcastle and lucky enough to gallivant around, hitching legends everywhere from my beloved Byron Bay right down to the salty South Coast. What a treat!
I guess the most important thing you need to know about me, is my beverage of choice - Margs. Because if we do this wedding thing together, there’s a good chance we’re coming out of it as best buds. (You're cool with that, right?)
Another, slightly less important, thing is my ceremony style. I guess you could say it’s pretty personal. As a hopeless romantic and an outrageously affectionate human, my favourite part of this gig is getting to know my couples and understanding the juice of their relationship. My numero uno priority is the connection we build before and roll around in during their day. For me to tell their story with just as much personality as their relationship, I need to be just as emotionally invested in this thing as they are!
So, there’s no two ways about it - I’m all about creating an experience that aligns with the character of your relationship. I’m invested in the ambience, the atmosphere, the energy and all the other jazz. The most important thing about your Ceremony (in my opinion) is that it looks, sounds and FEELS like you. With a cute splash of me. But mostly, y’know, you. So, unless you’re a frozen pie, it’s fun, absolutely! Relaxed, definitely. Unique, always.
I’m a more than average love-liker and a fairly creative writer. So, for the sake of authenticity, the inspiration for your ceremony (content to delivery) comes straight from your glorious minds. With a bit (a lot) of Salt and Pepper added by mine.
I don’t repeat boring facts, I engage your guests by telling your story. Whether it’s you and two witnesses, 20 of your nearest and dearest or 250 legends looking on, there’s always absurd enthusiasm (how long has she been friends with them?), unreal character representation (omg that’s so him!), relatable lol’s (belly brewed hahas) and real life romance (ooh ahhs). It’s a bit of a rollercoaster, to be honest, because
most relationships are. If your Ceremony is delivered properly, you’ll stumble out of it feeling alive, satisfied and wishing you could ride the thing one more time.
Any experience with me comes with a cheeky grin, cruisey attitude, lots of laughs and a genuine interest in making the dream come true. I’m there to pump you up, calm you down and soothe your sweet little souls leading into and the entire way through, your big show. I love what I do and I dare say that much will be obvious.
I’m quite fond of a good vibe - if you’ve got one, get in touch. Let’s chat!
A tale of two; the story of you. ‘Tying the Human Knot’ is a completely personalised ceremony, written from scratch. It speaks your language, reflects your relationship and sums you up as a couple. It's fun! It's relaxed! It's relatable!
It is not a snooze fest. There are no boring bits. All the content comes from YOU, with heaps of exaggeration and innuendo added by ME. Your guests will belly laugh and ugly cry as they ride the rollercoaster that is your very own Rom Com.
The ceremony itself will be unlike anything you’ve seen before, BECAUSE THERE IS NO STORY LIKE YOURS!
This package includes a few meetings, unlimited correspondence, preparation and lodgement of all legal documents, mandatory Marriage Certificate provided by the BDM ($60), help with personalised vows and a Bluetooth PA system (so we can throw the mic at each other.)
A ‘Quick Hitch’ is the equivalent to a good old fashioned (2-3 minute) registry wedding. This wedding party includes you and your love, your two witnesses and me to officiate the legal marriage! Get your stopwatches ready, because this will be the quickest hitching you'll ever see.
*No personalisation - legal components only.
*Ceremonies are held in Newcastle - an extra fee will apply for travel.
While Uncle Mick and Bestie Dan are dead-set legends and tell a bloody good story, they’re also fond of a beverage and get a bit loosey-goosey after dark. Leave those loveable loons to enjoy their frothy beers, exquisite food and great looking guests. Although I WILL have MANY drinks and wiggles with you, I can also keep your squad at a somewhat sensible version of lunatics. Or we can all go nuts together - totally up to you!
This value-add saves your bum and boosts your confidence all at once. All three of us catch up for a drink - we discuss the vibe/tone of vows you've already agreed on or create one from scratch. Then we split! One at a time, we'll dive in. I'll ask a few questions, we'll have a laugh, you'll word vomit on to me and I'll write your vows (in the agreed tone and structure) LIVE, as you speak. This way, we make the magic together.
You take a browse over them - make any final changes and waa-laa! VOWS DONE. Everyone is on the same page (or at least reading the same book), we’re all stoked and no-one gets their knickers twisted. *This service is available if I am AND if I am not your Celebrant.
G’day! I’m Rhys.
My guess is, you’ll be quick to pick me as quite the cruisey character. My life is best lived in the early morning surf, having an arvo beer with mates, adventuring slash being silly with my Fiance, Loz and sharing Vegemite toast with our half groodle, mostly bear, Mosely. It’s the simple things, you know?
I’ve had the ol’ photo-taker in my palms for most of my adult existence, snapping away at random people in their happy place. Originally in the ocean, then during my travels, now for lunatics in love. I still pinch myself, waking up and knowing I get to do what I love that day, every day.
Alot of folks would say Photographers have an ‘eye for detail’, but my lens is focused on movement - intimate and expressional. It’s emotion that drives our actions, so i’m looking for a smile creeping up someone’s face, a flicker in someone’s eye, a quick tilt of a head that tells me there’s a big laugh ready to explode out of their belly.
I think this form of photography is the art of reading people, just as much as it is about finding the perfect frame - and while you’re reading this, I hope you get a feel for if i’m the right artist to tell yours.
My job, above all else is to tell a honest, visual story of your day. Although I will ask you to say and do some silly things, i’m not much for shooting posed pictures. I -am- all for living in the moment, so I like to catch the in-betweens. The authentic action between two, the quiet as well as the outrageous, emotion in all it’s forms!
Building a connection with my couples is at the top of my priority list, my goal is to make you feel comfortable and confident in my presence. So, i’m a big fan of making pals before the big day. Catching up a few times means i’ll be a friendly and familiar face. (That idiot with the bad jokes.) Someone who can banter with your mates, befriend mum and dad and keep nanna out of mischeif. You’ll know and trust that i’m on your team and it’ll make all the difference. We’re amigo’s, shake and bake, potato and gravy with a side of chips.
My only promise is this - when you’re tossing back chicken wings and flicking through your albums in 100 years, you’ll smile and say, geez that was fun.

Sometimes getting hitched is cooler/funner/more exciting and romantic when it’s intimate, with just a handful of your nearest and dearest, while on a mountain/in a field/skydiving - WE GET IT.
Each relationship is unique, as will be the way a couple chooses to make their commitment. If a big wedding with all the bells and whistles doesn’t tickle your fancy, THAT’S TOPS - we’d like to offer you the ultimate adventure.
Picture this: you (it would be weird if you weren't there), your lover and a handful guests, perched on a mountain peak, a cliff edge, an open field, overlooking rolling green hills, beachside, on an island, wandering around a farm or in a cave - Getting married. Enjoy a completely personalised ceremony by Loz, with Rhys capturing every drop of your emotion. When the Big Show ends, dance off into the sunset for some portraits and then spend the rest of your time celebrating with your people.
We want to do whatever it is that sings to your soul, wherever that song takes you. Easily! Fuss Free. And pretty friggen special.
*Note - Loz is our preferred Marriage Celebrant, however you are welcome to include an alternative Marriage Celebrant, of your choice. In this case, prices may differ.

Yes pumpkin face, of course.
Now, stop filling your guts with all that chocolate until after dinner!
Celebrancy, MC and Photography are offered as individual services and we often do them seperately! We get a real kick out of mixing it up and working with other rad vendors, in and out of those fields. We’re proud as bloody punch to stand alongside those rockstars!
However, we’re also hopeless romantics. Naturally, we love working TOGETHER, too!
If you consider yourself just as cute and hungry as that little girl off the Taco add, humming the tune of “why can’t we have both?” Get in touch because:
