An amazing male wedding celebrant in Melbourne.

One of Melbourne's most sought after celebrants

David Schneider Professional Marriage Celebrant

David made our wedding day perfect. Guests approached us all night and said it sounded like he had known us for years, when in reality he’s just that good at his job. The ceremony length was just right, and the crowd were in a constant state of tears and laughter, with the wonderful stories he told of us and our life together.

As one of Melbourne's most sought after male wedding celebrants I am so looking forward to being able to help you have a wedding that is fun, relaxed, awesome, wonderful and so so beautiful.  I work with you to design a wedding your family and friends will be talking about long after the last glass of champagne has been sipped. 

So many of my couples tell me that their friends were saying, "best wedding ever" and that is what I strive for. Ensuring you have the wedding you have always dreamed about.

I love telling couples how I never do boring weddings, I don't even do good weddings, I only do great and amazing weddings.

A wedding is always a sense of occasion and it can be as casual, fun and relaxed as you want, and with a sense of tradition. 

Now that you are engaged and wondering where to start with the ceremony I'm here to help you create something special. I like to say that a ceremony should be what you have always imagined.

I love being a celebrant and was voted the TOP MALE WEDDING CELEBRANT IN 2016, 2017 & 2018 in multiple wedding industry awards, as voted by brides.

David was wonderful to work with from start to finish. He has a great, calm manner and is absolutely on top of everything. We had so many compliments about our ceremony and David structured it all beautifully, with lots of laughs. Great value too for the incredible amount of work he put into our ceremony. Thank you David! Could not recommend more highly!

The things you need to know.....

The legal work

There is a legal requirement under the Marriage Act that at least one month notice and no longer than 18 months is given for you to be married. The form to use is the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) and you can download the form HERE. The form must reach your celebrant no later than one month before the wedding.  For example, if we receive the form on September 15th you can be married anytime from October 15th onwards. If you need to apply for your marriage to be conducted within this one month timeframe please telephone me urgently as we must make application to the Registrar of Births Deaths and Marriages and seek permission to conduct the wedding.  I have successfully obtained permission many times and can assist you to conduct the ceremony if less than one months notice is required.

The photo gallery

You will see that I have a style at every wedding.  I am always suited and always wear a black suit. I never wear a blue suit as often the groom and groomsmen are wearing one. Just 1 of the 101 things I show you I do that makes me a standout celebrant. Click here.

How much does it cost?

Often I am less than the cost of your cars, and the flowers and I try and make my weddings affordable to everyone.  I am certainly great value for the amount of time that goes into making your wedding special and couples have commented on that in their testimonials.  There is about 20-30 hours work in most weddings. Click here to see the ceremony fee and everything that is included.  Remember, without a great celebrant, you are just having an expensive party.


There are so many things I do to help your day run smoothly, from escorting the mother of the bride down the aisle, (if she wishes) to re-pinning the grooms flower as it has slipped sideways.
