Celebrant since 2017

I’m Larry Summerville and I’ve been practising all my life to now be a registered celebrant. Only recently have I completed a Diploma of Celebrancy.

I have attended a large number of weddings over the years and wondered why?

They lacked connection, relevancy and had celebrants talking about themselves and conducting sermons.

I believe a marriage or any ceremony is about the participants.

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

I’d love to natter with you and get your backstory 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.

A little about me. I trained as a teacher. My report card on leaving college said “would succeed in teaching or broadcasting”. So for 40 odd years I played in radio, both on the microphone and in management.  It was fun.

Now I’m back teaching, using my qualifications to help launch some new talent into the multi platformed radio environment.

I’ve been married for 42 years and love the formal coupling that is marriage. Sure it has its ups and downs but anything worth doing is worth, working at.

The longevity of being with your best friend can overcome all
