Hi Mal Thank you so very much for all your wonderful help with our wedding. From the day Adam & I met you we just knew you were the Celebrant for our special day and what a special day you gave us.

Thank you for writing our special ceremony and conducting such a fabulous wedding for us. in your Wedding Chapel

We both thank you so very much. Penny & Adam

John & Elizabeth January 2019

Fantastic wedding:

The level of service given by Mal is fantastic. Having known Mal as a friend for many years and then as our Marriage Celebrant.I am consistently impressed by the professionalism I have seen. Thank you! for a wonderful wedding.

In this day and age, it’s hard to find a service that is good and reliable.

Mal was recommended to us by a friend, and now we know why –

the quality of service I received was outstanding.

At first we were thinking of getting married in the Registry Office,

it would have been cheaper, but a wedding in a government office could never be as good as the beautiful ceremony that a good Marriage Celebrant can give, like what Mal gave us.

After all it was our wedding, not just a day to record government paperwork.

Keep up the good work!”

Excellent. We had our wedding in Mal's free wedding Chapel.

We were both very happy with Mal's professional, relaxed and friendly manner. He wrote a great ceremony for us including some rituals from my partners home country. Very helpful with everything.

He also did a wedding for a friend of mine and helped her with the Migrant visa that my friend needed.

Dear Mal.

Thank you so much for making our wedding such a success. We had so many comments from family and friends about you & how impressed they were. 

You looked after all our needs and questions leading up to our day was fantastic & so professional. 

You were such a pleasure to work with together preparing the words and readings for our marriage ceremony. 

Mal you made everything so easy. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for helping us make it all come true.

Best regards, Bert and Joan  March 2018

We were married by Mal at the St Kilda Botanical gardens. The marriage ceremony that he prepared with our input was marvelous. Mal made our day very special in every sense of the word. He gave us many different ideas and suggestions, he made sure that our wedding was uniquely ours, just the way we wanted it. We highly recommend Mal to anybody who wants their own wedding to be “their wedding”. Jai & Peter Dec 2017


Mal was our celebrant for our wedding in July 2008. He was amazing. He was so professional and very warm and friendly. Mal is so easy to work with and so easy to relax knowing all will be well, and it was. Many of our guests assumed he was a friend of ours before becoming our marriage celebrant, he wasn’t, but he is now. He made us relaxed and really made our day even more special. I would recommend him to anyone and we will be staying in contact with him as my sister is planning to get married next year and we couldn't think of using anyone else. Ian & Wendy March 2016


I first saw Mal a few years ago, he was conducting ing a wedding in the Fitzroy Gardens Melbourne. I was passing by with my boyfriend, we both were very impressed. 

I approached a Thai lady who was assisting with everything. It was his wife, she was very helpful, I saw her checking all the documents after the signing, I thought mmmm very thorough. 

I later found out that it’s the way Mal & his wife work, as a team, to make sure everything

is checked and double-checked before the couple and witnesses leave. 

I got his phone number, rang the next day and made a time to catch up, 

had a great talk and then booked Mal to do our wedding, my boyfriend (now husband) fully agreed. 

We both say, it was the best wedding we have ever been to…. ours ..

Mal conducted our wedding at the Werribee Mansion.I recommend Mal to everybody as he is sweet and kind, a wonderful person and very professional. I had a wonderful experience with Mal as my wedding celebrant and recommend him for any special occasion. You will never find a better celebrant for celebrating anything, especially weddings,

He made our ceremony fun and full of love, truly our style! Mal is friendly and full of life.

My wife did have some visa problems leading up to our wedding, but he was brilliant making things 

easy and not stressful. Thanks for being so wonderful Mal.            Allan & Mary March 2012


Hi Mal, Marriage Celebrant

Lee and I were married by you on Sunday 14 June 2009 at your Wedding Chapel. 

We say a big thank you for making our day so special! The Thai theme that you and your lovely Thai wife Nok 

arranged, again thank you. The day ran so smoothly, everybody commented on the ceremony,  

how lovely it was and how they loved your humour! 

You made the serious day very enjoyable.

Yes we take our vows very serious, but we also enjoyed “our day” it was very entertaining and very enjoyable for everyone. Thank you so much!

Kind Regards,

Somjai & Lee
