While we all know your big day isn't about the celebrant, having a good one sure will make it better. A good marriage celebrant will make your life a whole lot easier by organising the boring admin that no bride or groom should have to worry about and they'll make your guests' lives a whole lot better by making sure the ceremony isn't a snooze fest.
To celebrate the gosh darn amazing news that the same sex marriage law was passed in Australia last week, we've hunted down a few of the best Perth marriage celebrants who are just as over the moon about the same sex marriage vote as we are!
