about me

My name is Ben Stanley and I am an authorised Marriage Celebrant. Given you are visiting this site you likely recently got engaged and are starting to plan your special day – congratulations!

As a Melbourne based Nationally accredited Civil Marriage Celebrant I primarily perform weddings however, I will happily do vow renewals, baby naming days, commitment ceremonies and funerals across Australia. I am as flexible as you are with the style and content and work closely with those at the heart of the celebration to tailor the perfect ceremony.

I became a marriage celebrant for one of my closest friends and my love affair with all things marriage was spawn. I offer an enthusiastic and vibrant approach and as your celebrant, I will create a completely personalised ceremony using the extensive range of resources that I have available or those you would like incorporated.

I commit to ensuring your ceremony will be fun, relaxed and represent you both as individuals and as a couple. With me, nothing is left to chance and I make it my mission to ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible so that you and your guests enjoy themselves.

In my day job of corporate finance and property I rarely get to explore my romantic side so I love hearing people’s stories about how they met and fell in love and enjoy the process of designing and performing tailor made services which complement the couple and their relationship.

As quite a young male celebrant in the industry I feel the couples who choose me have a unique opportunity and advantage in creating a memorable, highly specialised celebration and my main goal is to collaborate  until we achieve your perfect ceremony.

I understand organising and planning a wedding can be stressful and time consuming so I aim to simplify the process as much as possible and take charge of the legal requirements, paperwork and writing the perfect ceremony script.

My main goal is to ensure you are 100% comfortable with the person you choose to perform your ceremony and know exactly what you are getting on your big day.

Feel free to contact me for an obligation free catch up. I look forward to meeting you and your future life partner.
