Making your day
a memorable


I am a duly appointed Civil Marriage Celebrant by Australia's Attorney General.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing those around me happy and enjoying life. This is the main reason why I became a celebrant - to help people make their significant occasions as memorable as possible. Besides being a Marriage Celebrant, I am also authorised to conduct Naming's for babies and children, and Funerals.

My goal is to make your day a memorable experience, whilst taking care of the burdensome chore of paperwork to help relieve as much stress from you as possible.

  • Weddings

    I am able to help you both create a marriage ceremony that fulfils your needs. No two marriage ceremonies are the same. Bridal party sizes, guest numbers, venues, individual tastes and cultural backgrounds are just some of the mix that ensures each marriage ceremony is special.

    Initial Meeting

    Besides the ceremony itself there are quite a few important tasks that need to be taken care of before and at the wedding. One of the first things to do is to lodge a Notice of Intended Marriage Form. At our first meeting full birth certificates are required for verification. If either or both of you have been previously married, divorce papers will need to be produced.

    Marriage Ceremonies

    The marriage ceremony is composed of several pieces, some are legally required while others are optional. This provides you with the flexibility to have a short, simple, informal ceremony or a larger, more elaborate one. The choice is yours and I am here to assist you regardless. My task is to make your ceremony run smoothly and be one of the highlights of your life.

  • Renewal of Vows

    Re-committing to one another

    Many couples are taking the opportunity nowadays to 'renew their love' to one another. Quite often they just want to re-commit their 'committment and devotion' to each other, or simply just say 'I still love you' to each other. I am available to prepare a short ceremony or work with the couple to facilitate their renewal of vows.

  • Namings

    The naming ceremony is a special occasion to express joy and hope about the arrival of a child.

    A naming ceremony is an important and life rewarding experience for both family and friends. Family relationships are strengthened and the parent or parents become more aware of their responsibilities as do the godparents (life mentors), and grandparents.

  • Funerals

    I will help you create a service that is both unique and memorable. I can also assist with the writing of the eulogy and if required, read it for you. At times family members very close to the departed are able to write the eulogy but cannot read it during the funeral ceremony.

    Many families also prefer to have a graveside committal in addition to the funeral service. I am available to conduct these if requested.


Payment terms

50% deposit at our first meeting - receipt provided, and 50% balance payable at 6 months prior to wedding date- receipt provided.

This policy is strictly adhered to.


I am able to perform ceremonies at any venue, in any part of Australia and its Territories, including ‘way out there’ locations such as planes, trains or boats.

  • From the bottom of our hearts, Jim and I would like to thank Matt Burke and his wife Leni for making our big day memorable and fun!  We are so lucky to have Matt as our celebrant and MC in our program, he went over and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly and effortlessly.  We did not realise how he took charge of the last minute technical glitches as we were enjoying ourselves. Top man, 10 stars and we couldn't recommend him enough for all that he's done.

  • We had such a lovely day and our ceremony was exactly what we wanted - no fluff! We have already recommended you to one of our friends. Thanks again Matt, we couldn't have asked for a better wedding!

  • Matt, we waited over 2 years for you to get your Celebrant's licence and the wait was certainly worth it. Not only was the ceremony exactly as we had envisioned, your guidance and assistance before hand was first class, extremely helpful and without complications. Your sincerity, dedication and enthusiam was commented on by all present. You made a lasting impression not only to ourselves but all of our guests, who have spread the word that you are highly recommended for any type of ceremony.

    Jacki & David - Wedding

  • Matt Burke was terrific and so gentle with Hunter's naming ceremony, and he made it so special for both Matt, Hunter and I. We would have no hesitation in using Matt Burke again should we have another child.

    Anna & Josh - Wedding

  • I would highly recommend Matt. He was very approachable, very friendly and exactly what we wanted for our celebrant. We felt at ease with Matt and knew the day would go perfectly with him running it. He was happy to work with us to create the perfect ceremony and was happy to help us with things we weren't too sure of! As we didn't live in the area, Matt was very flexible with times and dates of any meetings. Thank you Matt for helping us make our special day so memorable.
