“I don’t marry people because it’s my job, I do it because I love what I do and I’m honoured to have been chosen
to be a part of one of the biggest days of your life. My aim has always been to leave my couples with a happy heart”
– Chris Temov
Over the past 20 years I have been involved in many aspects of the wedding industry, firstly as a wedding photographer then in the area of video production. So I believe I have a very good understanding of what it takes to make a couple feel special.
I was born and raised in Australia, but I come from a European background and have been lucky enough to have travelled the world extensively, so I know the important role extended families and cultural protocols can play.
While I love wedding to be fun, happy events, I firmly believe that fully understanding the needs of my couples and their families is paramount. I treat every couple I meet with the utmost respect and as good friends and I make sure that their special day is a true reflection of them, their families and friends.
It's about respect.
We had the privilege of Chris marrying us. He was just perfect with his professional, yet warm and personalised delivery. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant and would recommend him in a heart beat. We actually saw him at a friends wedding and knew we wouldn’t find a better celebrant so booked him in. I’m yet to see (and doubt I will ever see) a better celebrant. Thank you Chris for making our day perfect.

Just a few testimonials
Thank you so much Chris, we are just at the airport about to leave on our honeymoon, but I had to let you know that we are just so happy with how the whole day turned out and we had so many comments about what a great wedding celebrant you are! Thanks for such a beautiful ceremony.
Bec & Chris
Although we only met twice before our wedding, it honestly felt like we were being married by a ‘long time’ family friend. Your easy manner, sense of humour and wonderful way with words, make you such a natural Celebrant.. ..you’re simply the best! Thank you Chris.
Ilona & Conor
From the moment we met him, he made it clear that anything was achievable and there was nothing that was too big an ask. He is personable, kind and has a great sense of humour.
Our guests are still complementing our choice in Chris. He’s a crowd pleaser and as far as Andre and I go, he made us feel great in knowing we made the right choice! Do yourself a favour and go no further in your Celebrant search, you’ve just found Perth’s número UNO!
Kat & Andre
Chris was the perfect celebrant for us. He was both professional and personable and from our first meeting made us feel at ease. He knew exactly what we wanted and gave us the special, meaningful ceremony we were after. I would definitely recommend anyone to use Chris for their wedding!
Nicole & Kevin
From our first meeting with Chris we knew we loved him and was perfect to represent us on such a big day. He understood exactly what we wanted for our service and even helped with some ideas on what could make our service even better . Chris was professional, funny and engaging . What he delivered at our service made it sound like he had known us for years and many guests commented on how much they enjoyed our service and that they thought Chris was a personal friend because of the way he spoke about us.
Before the ceremony commenced Chris checked on both myself and my now husband to see how our nerves were holding up and to offer kind words and advise which I thought was not only helpful and calming but a lovely touch and a true testament to his character . Thank you Chris for making our service so personal and special!
Thank you, Krissy & Paul

A few simple steps
Step 1. Getting in touch. I find a quick chat over the phone is best, you may like to email me or simply complete the 'Request some information' form below. I look forward to answering any questions you may have, letting you know about the marriage process and I can also tell you a bit about what I can do as your personal Marriage Celebrant. We can talk about dates, fees and availability.
Step 2. We meet. We catch up over a coffee in my home/office and talk about your ideas. I will show you some sample formats and we can build it from there. Often, what makes a ceremony unique is to weave in the things that make your relationship special – where you first met, what makes you laugh, your favourite song to dance to and so on.
Step 3. The legal stuff. We meet up again to go through all of the legal paperwork and applications. While this 'sounds' a bit daunting, its really fairly straight forward. I'll guide you through the process and complete all of the applications and documents on your behalf.
Step 4. Build a ceremony. I create a 'draft' ceremony based on our conversations and as you wedding celebrant, you'll have unlimited support from me by phone, email or in person. I will have the draft to you around a month before the ceremony so you'll have plenty of time look through it and give me your feedback, then I'll fine-tune the ceremony and create a final version.
Step 5 (optional). The rehearsal. While this step is optional and not for every couple, I find it’s very useful to discuss your marriage ceremony, polish the script & music and finalise the plans for your big day.
Step 6. Your big day. I will be there early to ensure wedding runs smoothly and lead the ceremony from start to finish. I will conduct an amazing ceremony for you and afterwards, I will file the signed license and submit all legal marriage documentation to the correct authorities so you can enjoy spending the rest of your lives together.
