Larry Summerville - The Celebrant

I’m Larry Summerville and I believe a wedding is all about the participants.

A wedding should be fun and inclusive, that means the guests as well.

I’d love to natter with you and get your back-story, to produce a unique ceremony that meets your needs and the legal requirements.

Life is too short, and it’s not a dress rehearsal, so let’s have fun!

About Me

I’ve been married for 47 years and love the formal coupling that is marriage. The longevity of being with your best friend can overcome all. Public speaking has always been a passion of mine, so after being asked to MC many a wedding, through my family and broadcasting connections, I thought, why not take this to the next stage and become a celebrant.

I have been lucky enough to officiate many weddings and always appreciate the positive feedback that comes back to me about the ceremonies being unique and personal. My number one goal is to make sure you feel heard and you and your loved ones feel celebrated.

I welcome your questions and look forward to getting to know you.

Our guests enjoyed his presence and were happily entertained and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to all." - Hilary & Matthew

"Just wanted to say a huge huge thank you for everything. We had the best day! It was fantastic! Thank you for a beautiful ceremony, everyone was commenting on how good it was. Will highly recommend you to everyone we know. All the best for the future." - Gemma & John

"A quick note to say thanks so much from us for making it a wonderful wedding. It was a great service, and we were especially pleased that Mum could be there and that you handled her interjections so kindly and good-naturedly." - Andrew & Michela

"Steve and I wanted a relaxed and fun wedding. The ceremony that Larry wrote for us was all that but also … very personal. He made us both feel at ease with his calm, professional style. And on top of all that …. he is a great guy and we enjoyed spending time with him." - Steve & Megan

"Larry was absolutely incredible, he crafted a wonderful wedding ceremony personal to us. He balanced humour and emotion beautifully to the point my granny didn’t even question why he wasn’t a bishop." - Kaygan & Amy
