Reviews & Testimonials   just a few samples from the last 15 years

The best testimonial is family and  friends of the couple return here to also be married.

AND that has happened many times.


I have conducted over 300 weddings. Below are just a few of the reviews.

Sunday 14 June 2009    Hi Mal, Marriage Celebrant

Lee and I were married by you on 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


JULY 1 2020  Thank you for officiating our wedding in my parents home. 

Despite the Covid pandemic, you helped us a lot and you delivered such a beautiful wedding ceremony

on the most important day of our lives.

Despite the COVID 19 restrictions of not having all our families and friends during that time.

You have given us a very memorable experience by making our wedding ceremony intimate but

at the same time entertaining. 

It calms our nerves whenever you tell a little joke in between, as you could feel how nervous Paolo

and I were.

When everything is well, hopefully, we can do another Wedding ceremony where we can have all

our loved ones with us to celebrate and I will be calling you again to re-officiate our wedding.

Thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony special and joyful!

Everyone will definitely love to have you as their Wedding celebrant.

From Kristel & Paolo

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.

You helped us all the way through with your very friendly manner with some humour along the way.

Thank you for writing our special ceremony and conducting such a fabulous wedding for us.

in your  lovely Wedding Chapel

We both thank you so very much. Penny & Adam

I was at a friends wedding that you did in Sunbury.

Great to see such a friendly celebrant. Thank you.  Craig Hansen


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.    John & Elizabeth


December 2018   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!” 

Anthony & Aoy

  July 2018   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.

  MARCH 2018 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

   DECEMBER  2017 We were married by Mal at the St Kilda Botanical gardens.

The marriage ceremony that he prepared with our input was marvellous.

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


   March 2016  Mal was our celebrant for our wedding 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.

Because Mal is so friendly and professional, 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


   AUGUST 2023 We first saw Mal a few years ago, he was conducting 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 ..

Beth & Richard August 2023

      FEBRUARY 2024 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,

Helen & Tony Feb 2024


      MARCH 2024  Mal was fantastic to deal with for our wedding in his free Wedding Chapel

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 2024
