“Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life”
– Richard Bach
Welcome to Ceremonies with Bronwyn – working with you to make your special day a perfect one!
I am a
Brisbane marriage celebrant
who performs wedding ceremonies, same-sex weddings, commitment celebrations, elopement packages, paperwork-only weddings, and vow-renewal ceremonies, all tailored to meet your individual wishes.
Working out of Brisbane, I have performed ceremonies all over the South East Queensland and North East New South Wales, including the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Tweed Shire, Byron Bay, Ipswich, Logan, Redcliffe, Gold Coast Hinterland – Tamborine Mountain, Sunshine Coast, Hinterland, Caboolture, Scenic Rim, and Redland Bay.
I love weddings and have been inspired by my own many years of happy marriage to become a wedding celebrant and help people craft the best day of their life. I want to put your wishes and dreams at the centre of your celebrations, as that is what is most important!
A perfect wedding day is one that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life, and I am here to play whatever part is required to make that dream a reality.
Bringing your ideas to life
My aim is to bring your ideas to life so you and your partner have the most magical day possible. I take care of all of the legal aspects of your celebration, leaving you to enjoy the fun part of celebrating your love with friends and family.
I can also help personalise your marriage ceremony, with a collection of poems and readings that you can choose from, as well as assisting you to write your vows if required. I have been involved in planning celebrations for a diverse range of occasions and faiths, and understand the importance of including family and cultural traditions in your ceremony. Whether you are looking for a small, intimate renewal of your vows, or want to throw a large party to celebrate your love, each and every celebration, no matter the size or complexity, is special.
To ensure that you are happy hiring me as your celebrant I offer a no-obligation initial meeting. From that point, if you are happy with the arrangement I will work closely with you in the lead-up to your celebration to ensure all legal documentation is in place.
With the exciting announcement at the end of 2017 that same-sex marriage has been legalised in Australia, it would be my pleasure as a marriage celebrant to help you organise your same-sex celebration and share your love with the world. I am a firm believer in equal rights for all and am excited that the wonderful opportunity of two people pledging themselves to one another is now open to all.
For couples who would prefer to exchange vows in a commitment ceremony, I am also a civil celebrant; authorised as a Civil Partnership Notary to legally register your civil partnership in Queensland. Likewise, for couples who would prefer to marry privately, I offer an elopement package where just two witnesses are required. This option gives you the freedom to recite your vows to one another in an intimate, stress-free setting.
I also offer paperwork-only weddings for couples who would like to be legally married, but without the ceremony. You can add your own vows if you wish, the only requirement is that there are two witnesses present over the age of 18.
Mark a significant milestone wedding anniversary or a new baby
For couples who would like to celebrate their ongoing love, and maybe mark a significant milestone wedding anniversary, I can help you organise a vow renewal ceremony.
Maybe you would like to revisit the original vows that you spoke to one another, or write new vows to acknowledge the path that you have walked together and the new commitments and promises that you would like to make? As this ceremony is not legally binding, your vow renewal can be performed in any place that has special meaning to you both. A vow renewal can be a wonderful way to reaffirm the promises that you made to one another whilst celebrating with new friends and family members, especially if they could not join you at your first wedding.
In addition to being a wedding celebrant, I can also perform naming day celebrations. This is the perfect way for you to bestow the name on a new baby to welcome them into the world, or an older child or adult who is changing their name and joining your family. Generally a non-religious alternative, a naming day celebration is a great modern-day alternative to a more traditional christening or baptism. It can be personalised however if you wish to incorporate family and cultural traditions to make the naming day as memorable and meaningful as possible.
Bronwyn was such an amazing celebrant! She was the first vendor we booked for our wedding and went above and beyond for us she even drove all the way to our house for meetings when we had a particularly busy schedule. On our wedding day she was flawless! Thank you Bronwyn for making our day extra special!! Xx
My husband and I were lucky enough to find Bronwyn very quickly and also very close to home which made things very easy. She was absolutely amazing at getting everything done and organised so quickly as we had to put a rush on things due to a very ill family member. She made our day and whole experience perfect and we couldn't of been any happier.
Thank you for conducting a great wedding and making our wedding a beautiful event that we will remember for life. If we know of any other couple that want their wedding vows renewed we shall certainly recommend you on the highest regard. Thanks once again Bronwyn you are more than a celebrant you are, and always will be a great friend to Yan and myself.
Thank you for your amazing service today! Our wedding had been so wonderful with your effort. Thank you so, so much again. The newly wedded Mr and Mrs L.
Thank you so much for our wonderful ceremony at First Bay, Coolum. We chose the 'Kiss and Go' ceremony for our tiny beach elopement and it was just perfect. Bronwyn was super organized and incredibly helpful in choosing a venue and a date. Our day was exactly what we hoped for and we couldn't have done it without Bronwyn!
Bronwyn was absolutely fantastic when it came to organizing our ceremony. She provided fantastic readings & verses & helped with doing the ceremony the way we wanted it. It could not have been better. All legals were attended to. Very highly recommend Bronwyn, her professionalism & love of what she does is very noticeable.
Bronwyn, Thank you so much for being our celebrant at our wedding and providing us with so many options for readings to choose from - we are incredibly grateful! We had a lovely day and we both enjoyed having you there to make our union official. Almost all of our guests were in tears during the ceremony (including my brother!). We are so lucky to have had such a great celebrant!
Hi Bronwyn, We would like to thank you again for the very special and unique wedding! We couldn't have been happier! Thank you very much!
Bronwyn did an excellent job. She made us very comfortable and created something we really wanted. Very quick response time, easy communication. The ceremony was excellent!
Bronwyn is a lovely celebrant who made our ceremony very personalised and special. She is very easy to talk to and makes the process less stressful and more enjoyable!
Bronwyn is amazing. She is very professional and easy going. She made our ceremony so special and beautiful and would highly recommend her.
We had such a wonderful day, you really were amazing, so lovely, thank you for being perfect xx
Bronwyn married myself and my now wife in April. She did an amazing job at the ceremony and made planning the actual ceremony a breeze. Thank you Bronwyn for an amazing job
We met Bronwyn shortly after Australia’s ‘Yes’ vote was announced, we felt that getting married in Australia with all our friends and family present would be so much nicer than eloping to New Zealand. Bronwyn is so lovely to work with, she explained the procedures very clearly and discussed all the details at our first meeting, she gave us very useful tips and advice for the ceremony. Bronwyn wrote a beautiful ceremony, she made a huge contribution to ensuring our wedding day was very special. Our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the day including the celebrant and the ceremony, it has been referred to as ‘the best wedding’ they have attended. We can highly recommend Bronwyn, she will make sure your wedding day is the most special day. Thank you so much Bronwyn
Bronwyn was very thorough and very approachable. She is such a nice, lovely lady. Very happy with her service.
We were lucky enough to stumble across Bronwyn while looking for a celebrant and we could not have been happier with our choice. Bronwyn was able to communicate with us over long distance via correspondence with ease and professionalism and created the perfect ceremony for my wife and myself. We cannot give enough praise to Bronwyn for the services she provided. She catered to our needs for the ceremony with ease, keeping the day as enjoyable for all as possible. We can’t recommend her enough.
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. Harry and I are from the UK and were coming on a holiday here on The Gold Coast. We decided just before our trip to get married on Broadbeach and Bronwyn was so helpful in making our dreams come true and we were able to plan our day via FaceTime! We will never forget our day and would highly recommend Bronwyn!
Bronwyn is amazing! She made our ceremony so special and personalized it just for us. Bronwyn’s words left the guests and myself and Levi laughing as well as in tears. Thanks to Bronwyn, our ceremony was beautiful. Thank you so much Bronwyn, it was amazing.
MASSIVE thanks to Bronwyn for our ceremony. From our first meeting, we knew we wanted Bronwyn to marry us. Everything was clear and explained fully and we felt at ease straight away. Our ceremony was short and sweet, just the way we wanted it and Bronwyn was brilliant. Highly recommended by The Frenchies!
Bronwyn is truly amazing! She made our ceremony perfect and was just so amazing to work with! She gave us all the information and options we needed. She is a dream to work with!
Bronwyn was a fantastic celebrant and went out of her way to make sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She was very professional and a warm genuine person. We are so happy we found Bronwyn and would highly recommend her
Thank you so much for making our big day possible.
Bronwyn was such a wonderful lady and we were so lucky to meet her! She did an amazing job with our ceremony. We wanted a short and sweet ceremony and that was what exactly she did. She made the whole process easier by coming out to us and going through the paperwork and the ceremony. She was also very patient with our little pup when he wanted attention to himself 😀 I would recommend Bronwyn to anyone! Thank you again for marrying me and my husband!
Bronwyn was an excellent celebrant for our wedding, professional, understanding and very skilled at putting together a ceremony that felt perfect on the day. She has a very caring and calm manner that was very reassuring as we got caught up in the rush to have everything ready on our big day. We can't thank her enough for the support before the wedding from giving us ideas and resources for the service to a great rehearsal, it all ensured that everything went smoothly on the day. We would definitely recommend Bronwyn to others, and wish her well.
Hi Bronwyn, We were very happy with the service you gave us. You were very thorough with the paperwork and documentation we needed to complete. You gave Trish all the information needed to change her surname. We would definitely recommend you to other couples. Thank you.
Dennis and I really appreciate the service you provided us at our wedding ceremony on the 18/06/2016. We both are great full for having such a pleasant and harmonious brief ceremony at our favourite place on the Gold Coast beach. I speak of you with high regard to my friends and family's. Now because of you and your help it finally brought Dennis and I a lot stronger as husband and wife. I never thought I'd see the day that I would be married to a loving, caring, supportive and courageous man whom stolen my heart more than 17 years ago. Being married has only made our relationship 100% stronger and I thank you Bronwyn for making that day happen. The date we chose to be married has special significance and meaning to us both and we're glad the day turned out to be perfect and we are so blessed. Once again Bronwyn from the bottom of hearts Dennis and I would like to thank you for being apart of the most precious moment in our lives and may God bless you and your family also watch over you and protect you. You are truly an angel. Thank you.
Jonathan and I would like to thank you so much Bronwyn for being our celebrant on our special day. Even though it was my birthday party, and we were all dressed as vampires, you helped surprise our guests with our wedding. You truly did a wonderful job and we are so pleased we chose you. I hope in ten years you will join us once again to renewal our vows. Thank you again. Xoxoxo
Karl & I would love to thank you for being a part of our special day. We couldn't have done it without you.
I knew Bronwyn would be perfect as soon as we started chatting on the phone. My hopes were confirmed when we met and she went above and beyond, with the entire leadup to the wedding. She included many personal touches and constantly kept in contact. The wedding ceremony was perfect and she was professional yet personable. Hopefully I will never need her services again but I recommend her highly.
Thank you Bronwyn for our lovely little ceremony @BinnaBurraLodge.
From the first moment we spoke to Bronwyn it was clear we got the right celebrant! She listened to what type of wedding we were after and accommodated very professionally. Everything was explained very clearly which left us with no worries making our day very special. Thanks Bronwyn!
Will and I were so pleased we chose Bronwyn to be our Celebrant. Everything was handled in a Professional way. Bronwyn took care of all the arrangements, which virtually meant all we had to do was show up. The Ceremony itself was conducted in a very Professional and elegant manner with a touch of humour. Thank you again Bronwyn
Standing in the rain, her glasses dripping with water, while holding an umbrella over us Bronwyn was amazing, she was so great to deal with through out the whole process she gave us so much freedom to have the vows and ceremony that we wanted, and we are so glad that we were able to have her as our celebrant. Thank you Bronwyn you made our day unforgettable.
You can't get a better celebrant. When I first called Bronwyn it was a Friday, massive storm and she was on the Gold Coast. She drove for 2 hours in peak hour traffic, through the storm to meet us at home that very same day. Talk about above and beyond. She is incredible, our day was brilliant, thank you Bronwyn.
Bronwyn was our celebrant for our small wedding in June. She is a lovely lady, with a positive vibe. She always made everything seem like it was never a problem! From start to finish she was very thorough, friendly, affordable and extremely reliable. I would recommend her to any couple that wants a down to earth celebrant who listens to what you want, thank you Bronwyn x
Bronwyn.... angels come in many forms. Calming, guiding you through life. I chose you as soon as I spoke to you... You certainly have been our special guide and supported us through the months up to the wedding. Thank you for making our day so memorable. You will always have a special place in our memory thank you.
Bronwyn was our celebrant yesterday and she was just so great. She helped make our day perfect and was very patient when I forgot things. Absolutely thrilled with her work.
My husband and I had the great pleasure of having Bronwyn marry us on the 1/9/17 and we couldn't ask for a better day. 😊 Thank you lovely. xo
Thank you for such a great job talking us through this special time. It was fun having you along for the journey.
My husband and I had to move our wedding back six months, our original celebrant could not do our new day. We were upset but now so glad. Bronwyn was a blessing in disguise, she went out of her way to make sure our wedding would be special as we were thinking of cancelling all together as my brother passed away the day before we were supposed to get married. Bronwyn help me see that he would be there in spirit, she even went and purchased a candle and a special holder to incorporate a lighting at the ceremony to remember my brother.. I can not recommended her enough. Our ceremony that she wrote was beautiful as well, just an all together perfect celebrant. I could not have asked for a better person to marry my husband and I.
Thank you so much for being part of our day and making it special and exactly what we wanted. Loved having you as our celebrant.
Bronwyn married my husband and I in February 2017 she was so helpful, kind and lovely made everything run smoothly.
Bronwyn was our celebrant at our wedding in March. She was very professional and easy to deal with, and she made everything so easy during our wedding preparations. She allowed us to fully customise the ceremony, and she provided us with multiple readings/poems. On our wedding day, she spoke wonderfully and was very organised! We were very glad we chose her to be our celebrant, and would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs a celebrant.
Just wanted to say thank-you for making our special day what it was. The ceremony was small, intimate and everything we wanted it to be and more. The afternoon was magnificent and we had a lovely wedding. Thank you Bronwyn, we would recommend you to anyone looking for a celebrant.
Bronwyn was an excellent celebrant and we were very happy with our choice! Very flexible, helpful and happy to be guided by us - even changing the ceremony script the night before.
We originally had another celebrant booked. But when they pulled out we met Bronwyn. What a blessing in disguise that was! Bronwyn was amazing from the beginning right until the very end. She was so friendly & approachable, & from the instant we met her we felt very at ease with her. Bronwyn was always prompt in replying to our questions & was happy to rewrite bits of our ceremony as many times as we required. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special Bronwyn!
Bronwyn made our day so special and so full of love! She is a really special woman who went above and beyond for me and my new husband and made sure our day revolved around love and happiness!
If you're looking for a kind, organised and perfect celebrant. I wouldn't recommend anyone else but Bronwyn! We couldn't thank you enough for being a huge part of making our day perfect. If I could marry my amazing husband every single day, we would choose you as our celebrant every time.
Bronwyn was also our celebrant for our small intimate wedding in March. She was always very thorough and gave us many options throughout the whole process so the wording was personal without us having to write much. Easy going, always a smile, even if you are freaking out yourself, extremely affordable and very helpful. Even recommended a fantastic photographer whom we couldn't have been more happy with. Recommend over and over again.
Thank you so much Bronwyn for being a part of our special day. You are professional and a wonderful celebrant. And thank you for marrying us on your birthday!!! Couldn't have picked a more perfect celebrant.
Bronwyn went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect. She met with us on several occasions and attended our wedding rehearsal two hours' drive away. Bronwyn put in the effort to get to know us, and our wedding script reflected our personalities and the significant time and thought that Bronwyn put into it. We would certainly recommend Bronwyn to anyone looking for a thoughtful and professional celebrant.
I love it she married me and my hubby. Thank u so so much.
I truly cannot speak highly enough about our wonderful marriage celebrant Bronwyn Saleh. I will be forever grateful for the dignified, sincere and heartfelt ceremony that Bronwyn performed in front of our very closest friends in the Penthouse at the stunning Soul Hotel, Surfers Paradise. I really believe Bronwyn was born to be a celebrant as she is such a genuine, kind, funny, warm and a truly sincere person yet she exudes the necessary class and authority to perform the legal aspects of the ceremony convincingly. Bronwyn always returned any calls promptly and was totally fine for me to have as much or as little involvement in the drafting of the content of the actual ceremony I liked. Ultimately I was too busy organising other wedding related stuff so I left it all to Bronwyn, and we could not of been happier with the ceremony content. Thank you so much Bronwyn for being there for us, I really felt like you had my back and you really made my wedding so much more special just with your presence.
We couldn’t have been happier with Bronwyn Saleh. She was everything we could have ask for. Very highly recommended.
Bronwyn was so lovely, I knew I wanted Bronwyn to be our celebrant the first time we met. Very easy to talk too and to get in contact with, she has plenty of ideas to share and makes the marriage process an easy one. I would love to recommend Bronwyn to everyone 🙂
Bronwyn is such a kind and caring person who was so organised and helped us to create our day the way we had wanted. We had a small intimate wedding with just 20 guests. Bronwyn is genuinely passionate about helping you create the perfect day and spends a lot of time listening and following up to make sure everything is perfect. We feel very blessed and grateful to have been married by such a special person.
She is incredibly professional and super organise and made the whole process so easy. She is very friendly and will go out of her way to make sure you are happy and that you have the best ceremony possible. I would happily recommend to anyone.
Hi Bronwyn, on behalf of Tasha and I, we would like to express our gratitude to you for marrying us. We had an awesome day and wish it didn't have to end... and can't stop talking about it. Thank-you for your time it went just as we wanted it to. Thanks and love from Grant and Tasha.
Bronwyn has been very patient throughout the whole process. I wouldn't have made a better decision than choosing her to marry us. She's organised, thorough, and very accommodating to our requests. She has taken time to communicate and we didn't have any problems during the ceremony because she performed her role very well.
Bronwyn was our celebrant and she was BRILLIANT! She had a difficult task of making our ceremony "superhero" themed and she did it and executed it perfectly.
Bronwyn went out of her way to make sure our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. She thoughtfully provided an extensive list of readings and helped create a beautiful ceremony (even in the rain!). Her patience, warmth, and sincerity made the whole experience stress-free. I would highly recommend Bronwyn!
Bronwyn married my husband and I on the 28th October 2016. We highly recommend her. She is such a lovely, kind hearted, friendly and professional business woman, who will do anything and EVERYTHING in her power to make sure that your ceremony is the ceremony of your dreams. Bronwyn goes the extra mile, from printing and laminating our vows for us to visiting our venue's showcase (even though we couldn't make it) so she was familiar with the location. Thanks for everything Bronwyn!!!
We were very happy with her service. Very friendly, well spoken and kind, we didn't feel rushed or stressed out and she helped us design the perfect wedding ceremony. Would recommend!
Bronwyn was the most supportive and organised celebrant we could wish for. Her drafting of the ceremony was timely and thorough. What a range of ideas she provided for us to choose from! Bronwyn is an elegant and caring celebrant, who will help you make your day memorable and joyful
We were so lucky to have Bronwyn as our celebrant, she was extremely professional and allowed us to fully customize our ceremony whilst still ensuring the legalities were all fulfilled. If you are after a great celebrant, we highly recommend Bronwyn.
Bronwyn was absolutely fantastic on the day as well as leading up to the day. She was very organised and a pleasure to work with as she made it very personal and put a lot of effort into assisting us to make our day perfect.
