As a celebrant, I’ve married lots of straight people (see www.bronteprice.com.au). And I’ll continue to do so.
If you’re a member of the LGBTI community, I’d also love to marry you (as a celebrant!). But right now, It’s against the law for me, as a gay celebrant in Melbourne, to marry same sex couples.
But in recent months, while we’ve endured the postal vote, I’ve been getting ready for when marriage equality becomes a reality in Australia. I’m the first Australian celebrant to complete the Certificate in Gay and Lesbian Weddings from the US-based Gay Wedding Institute. I know the latest trends in gay and lesbian weddings, I have a raft of different rituals and traditions that same sex couples may want to use on their wedding day – things that make our weddings as different from hetero-normative weddings as you’d like them to be.
Of course, if you’d prefer to follow the traditional path and plan a conventional wedding, then I’d be delighted to help you do that, too.
So, while we wait for the marriage law to change in Australia, same sex couples can still pencil in a tentative future date for their special day.
Your ceremony can be whatever you want it to be:
- a traditional ceremony
- something a bit more contemporary
- flamboyant and camp (or not)
- bear style
- or a mix of the above.
Why not pencil in that special day?
What I’d like you to do now
How about we go on our first date? Nothing too serious. Let’s have a coffee or glass of wine and get to know each other. If the mood’s right, we can look at checking out my availability on you and your partner’s special day.

Remember, my first meeting with you is free and comes with no obligation.
