For all of life’s important rituals; weddings, renewal of vows, or baby namings, I offer bespoke, personal, original ceremonies, crafted and delivered with style and warmth.

As an Anglo-Australian, I have London to thank for knocking me into shape, and Sydney for rounding off the edges, and I like to think that both cultures inspire my approach to celebrancy; a certain English gravitas delivered with a warm Aussie smile!

I have been many different things in my life; from corporate music industry manager to teacher, from landscape gardener to copywriter, not to mention, at various times, a full-time dad to each of our 3 daughters.

The common thread that runs throughout has been my passion to connect and communicate with people from all walks of life.

I love to get to know people and hear their unique story, and for weddings, my aim is to capture the true essence of a couple’s relationship, and to understand their hopes and aspirations for their big day.

As a writer, I enjoy the challenge of bringing a ceremony to life with the right words, and creating the kind of emotional impact that rings true for the couple, all in a style that puts them at ease enough to enjoy the occasion to its fullest.

The celebrant’s words and presentation help to set the stage for the couple, but when that magic time comes for them to declare their love and commitment, the outside world should melt away, leaving them totally relaxed, being themselves and owning the moment together, focused only on one another.

As celebrants, we are blessed to work in the field we do, especially in a multicultural centre such as Dubai, where so many vibrant life stories converge.

I look forward to working with you and hearing your story.

Your performance of the ceremony was very professional. You have a beautiful speaking voice.


Ian is very much the professional but relaxed celebrant you would want for your wedding. From the planning ahead of the wedding to on the day, Ian was thoughtful and put us at ease. Ian brings ideas where you don’t have any or struggling, collaborates but is flexible. Throughout he shows his number one objective is doing the ceremony the way you want it. Communication way was clear and easy and although we were not in the same location it was not a problem through Skype calls. The rehearsal put us at ease and Ian was flexible in his approach taking in the surroundings and adjusting style and content accordingly. Ian came to see us before the ceremony which put us at ease. We felt in safe hands and it was one thing we didn’t worry about on the day. Ian’s words were beautiful and fitting for us, the surroundings and the audience. It felt personal. Overall Ian helped create an meaningful, unique and original ceremony that we both enjoyed thoroughly. Would highly recommend for your ceremony.
