Marriage Celebrant • Sydney

Get Married Without the Gremlins

I use my show-biz skills to create relaxed, technically smooth wedding ceremonies, so you can focus on your love, not your logistics.

Congratulations — you two are getting married!

Imagine a wedding ceremony where:

  • your wedding guests don’t post ugly photos on social media before you’ve even said “I do”
  • your music fades out gently as you arrive at the top of the aisle
  • your bouquet effortlessly makes its way from your hands, to your attendant, to the signing table and back again without you having to worry about it (I bet you didn’t know your flowers had their own journey!)

Not only have I performed many weddings, I’ve also stage managed a hundreds of shows, from circuses to operas, so I know how to take care of all the details. My theatrical background means that alongside all the regular stuff all celebrants do (the legals, your love story, personalisation), I also take care the technical elements so you and your partner shine for each other, and for your guests.

If you’d like a show-biz trained celebrant who will be your script writer, director, stage manager, and crew, all while staying out of your photos, please get in touch to check your date.

Kathryn Paul • Celebrant • She/Her

I have grey hair, tattoos and an obsession with running and silver jewellery. I am the proud owner of degrees in Stage Management and Creative Writing. When I’m not marrying people, I am a social media manager, copywriter, and still stage manage the odd theatre show.

My favourite couples have:

  • a relaxed attitude to life and the wedding (no high maintenance here)
  • a desire to create an intimate, meaningful ceremony to mark the start of a new phase of your life
  • a reverence for the significance of marriage while maintaining a sense of wonder, joy and delight
  • a modern, inclusive view of love
  • a sense of adventure

Please get in touch to check your date if you think we’re a match.

“I felt an instant connection with Kathryn’s warm personality and caring nature. She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed at our first meeting, from then on I knew I had made the right decision in choosing her. She included all my special requests into our surprise ceremony and worked with us beautifully to ensure my vision came true. I’m so happy I chose you to marry Alec and I – you made our wedding day just perfect!!”
— Alec & Allana, Married at Forestville, Sydney, NSW.

I wholeheartedly support all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, neuro-diverse, indigenous, multi-cultural and differently-abled people’s rights, their marriages, their pursuit of happiness and their importance in the world.
