Modern Wedding Ceremonies • Sydney & Beyond

Marriage celebrant specialising in second-chance weddings, updated traditions and eco-friendly ceremonies.

If you believe in UPCYCLED love — second chance weddings, updated traditions and eco-friendly ceremonies that extend the love between you and your partner to all humans and the planet — then you’re in the right place.

If you’re a couple who have created a new, improved love story from the broken pieces of your past relationships, you understand how joyous and magical second chances can be.

Let’s make your wedding day about creating memoriesemotions and shared experiences, rather than accumulating extra clutter you don’t need.

Please get in touch to check your date and arrange a no-obligation catch-up (in person or via Zoom) to see if we’re a good match for each other.

“Kathryn was amazing from the very start of our journey, she put our minds at rest throughout the whole process and on the day she helped make it as perfect as we’d imagined. Kathryn’s words in the ceremony were beautiful and funny, I would recommend her to everyone! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
— Jon & Michelle, Married at West Ryde, Sydney, NSW.

Kathryn Paul • Celebrant

I have grey hair, tattoos and an obsession with running. I am proud of the two masters degrees in writing I recently earned at UTS. When I’m not marrying people, I am a social media manager, graphic designer, and Stage Manager for odd theatre show.

My ideal couple have:

  • a relaxed attitude to life and the wedding (no high maintenance here)
  • a desire to create an intimate, memorable 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
  • a belief that perfect is boring and imperfect is where the magic happens

Please get in touch if you think we’re a match.
