Sunshine Coast Wedding Celebrant Kristy Ellis is proud to be part of the new generation of professional Civil Celebrants offering fresh unique ideas to enhance your ceremony; promising a day full of timeless moments that you will treasure forever.


Your wedding day should be one of the most wonderful memories of your life.  As your wedding celebrant my aim is to make sure that you have the ceremony you want - formal or informal, sophisticated or simple.


As a modern, professionally trained civil marriage celebrant I will ensure that the celebration of your love by marriage will long be remembered by everyone who is special in your lives.



 Let's talk about your favourite topic - your wedding!


I am a fully licensed celebrant, registered with the Attorney General's office and ready to help you create your perfect wedding day.


A lot goes into the planning and preparation for a wedding and these days the task is often left to the bride and groom.  You are probably both working full time and have little time left in the day, let alone organise a wedding.  Rest assured I'm here to help make it that little bit easier for you with all the legal requirements.


My role is to listen to what you want for your wedding day, however if you don't have a clear idea of what you want yet, don't worry I can help you with ideas to spark your imagination for that too.

Process for Choosing your Celebrant


I recommend catching up for a chat/coffee at my home office so you can get to know me a little better before making your decision and so I can hear more about your wedding plans and ideas!


At this meeting we can discuss your preliminary wedding plans and I can provide you with any advice or suggestions that you may need.  I will also give you a brief background on myself and my services and cover all of the legal aspects to getting married.


If you don’t live locally we can easily do all of the above over the phone. I often work with couples from interstate and overseas and sometimes it is not possible to meet you until the day before your wedding.  It is very easy to work together via email, telephone and post, and I will send all the information that you need.


From here we then book a follow up meeting and go through in great detail all of your wishes and dreams for your ceremony.  I also ask you lots of questions so I can get to know you better which enables me to write a beautiful, personalised and custom wedding ceremony that your guests will love!  Once you have paid the booking fee I will also provide you with a kit to help with ideas on vows, readings, rituals, etc.

Kristy, Josh and I wanted to thank you sincerely for being such a terrific part of our wedding day. We both really enjoyed meeting with you and creating the perfect ceremony on the day we said 'I do'. We loved that you were able to weave our story into our ceremony and also to compliment the serious nature of a wedding with a little humour. When I looked around at our guests, I could see lots of tears of joy and everyone loved the words that made us husband and wife.

Thanks again, we couldn't have wished for a better celebrant. Love Elisha & Josh


Hi Kristy

Angela and I wanted to thank you for the amazing job that you did as the celebrant for our wedding. You made the process as enjoyable and stress free as possible. Prior to the wedding you did a great job of listening to what we wanted out of the whole experience and the ceremony package that you put together suited us perfectly. We appreciate the rehersal that you organised for us which ensured that the day went off without any problems. The ceremony itself was modern, well structured and very meaningful. We would highly recommend Kristy as your wedding celebrant on the Sunshine Coast as she did such a fantastic job with our ceremony.

Love Baiden and Ang.


Dear Kristy,

Thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony so special and unique. Our family and friends all commented on your beautiful personality, warmth and originality.

We were blown away by your sincerity and how comfortable we felt with you from the first day we met you. Glenn and I can't speak highly enough of you, and have already recommended you to some friends!

Thank you once again for absolutely everything, it is definitely a day we will never forget. It was such an amazing and special day and it wouldn't have been the same without you.

Thank you for making our day so memorable and especially easy.

With Love, Mr & Mrs Moffat xx


Hi Kristy, 

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for Friday it was such a great day. The ceremony was just perfect!!! Your words in the ceremony could not have been more perfect they suited our taste and it wasn't over the top. You were flexible and happy to go with changes to make it our own, no questions asked. And the finishing touch with the bound copy of the ceremony and the cover were amazing, very nicely presented and unexpected. Thanks again and I will be sure to send anyone your way if they are looking for a wedding celebrant on the Sunshine Coast. 

You were fantastic!!!! Thanks again Sonia & Brendan


Hi Kristy,

Both Sarah and I wanted to send you an e-mail and thank you for the beautiful service. All our guests commented on how well organised and beautiful the ceremony was. We loved the personalised style of the ceremony. Religious ceremonies are nice, but both Sarah and I feel that they don't really talk about the individual qualities of the couple.

The ceremony was funny, emotional and beautiful all in one.  Thank you very much Kristy, we had the most fantastic day, not a thing went wrong!

Tom Hall, our photographer, had the best time and said that our ceremony, the photos, reception, food and overall feel of the wedding was the most amazing he has ever been to. So we thank you for your organisation of the ceremony :)

Thanks again Kristy,

Kind Regards,

Mitchell & Sarah


Hi Kristy  

Thank you so much for your being our celebrant on our special day. We were so pleased with the ceremony, you made it just perfect. We felt so comfortable having you there.  

We had so many comments from guests on the day about how amazing you were. We will be recommending you to all our family and friends who are getting married.  

Thank you again Kristy, look forward to seeing you sometime soon.

Love Shaun & Simone Bright


Kristy, you helped make our day perfect.  From the beginning you gave us so much of your time to get to know Scott and I and personalize our wedding.  On the day you were so organised and helped make sure that everything ran smoothly.  You greeted our guests like they were at your own wedding and were supportive of Scott and the groomsmen while waiting for the bridal entrance.  You helped me get through my vows when I started to tear up which saved my make up :)  We highly recommend your services to anyone looking for an elegant ceremony with a personalised touch.  We cannot thank you enough.  

Kristal and Scott Davis


Dear Kristy,

Thank you for being our celebrant for our special day.  Your service was very professional and easy going, as you have a very clam and sweet personality which I think is very appropriate for a celebrant as the last thing I would want on such a day is a pushy celebrant. Your website is fantastic and really helped when it came to looking for a celebrant. I also loved your gift to us in the folder or our wedding ceremony all nicely presented.  I would be more than happy to recommend you to others looking for a Sunshine Coast celebrant.

Love Nadia & Paul


Hi Kristy,

We will have no trouble recommending you as the best Sunshine Coast Celebrant!!

Thanks again so much, it was a perfect day.

Bree and Joel Kempe


Dearest Kristy,

Thank you, again, for helping us come together and celebrate our special day. We really appreciate how effortless and lovely you made the whole wedding, and how you helped us capture the love and simplicity we desired within the ceremony. 

Sean and Susie


Dear Kristy

Thank you so much – you were the most amazing celebrant ever and everyone commented on what a beautiful job you did.  Thanks again for making our day so incredibly special and you will always be an important part of our lives.

Love Mr and Mrs Spencer xoxox



We want to say a big thankyou to you for everything you did to make our wedding day so special. From the preparation, to the ceremony (even your co-ordinated outfit!) you delivered exactly what we were looking for - providing us with such a fresh approach and a beautiful ceremony on the day. We received many comments from our guests about how fantastic you were and how original, intimate and lovely the ceremony was. Right from our first meeting we were so comfortable with you and were excited to have you be a part of our day. We have so many beautiful memories of the day and please know that you played a large part in setting the tone and making it such a special ceremony.      

Your passion is obvious and your ability is clear. We could not have asked for a better celebrant and will be sure to recommend you as the loveliest Sunshine Coast Wedding Celebrant! Thank you once again!

Love Deb & AJ
