About Lee Halligan, Celebrant

I love my work as a Celebrant and look forward to meeting each one of my couples or families. What more could I want, being involved in joining couples in marriage, or renewing their vows, naming beautiful babies or children, and leaving them all with wonderful memories.

I am a widow and have raised two amazing children who have blessed me with six beautiful and inspiring grandchildren. My early background was in business and as my children grew I graduated as a Psychologist and Teacher. These careers have given me both organisational knowledge and skills in working with people and especially with children and occasionally with pets.

My active work in photography gives me a linkage in working with your chosen photographer to choreograph a ceremony that takes into account the environment to enable your photographs to look beautiful.I pride myself in being compassionate, understanding of your needs and delivering a ceremony that exceeds your expectations.


A wedding ceremony is a very special occasion for the bride and groom as well as family and friends. A lot of smiles, a few laughs and a couple of tears are always the signs of a great wedding. Your ceremony is a very important moment in your lives, and you will want a ceremony to remember forever.

If you're looking for a Celebrant that can share your excitement and happiness, then you've definitely come to the right place!

Colleagues tell me that I am a down to earth person with a positive outlook on life with a happy, genuine, and friendly disposition. I'm always conscientious and diligent in my approach as a Celebrant and life in general. I have a lot of experience in public speaking and will assist you in sharing your vows and special moments with your guests.

I will join with you in celebrating and legalising your marriage. My commitment to you is that I will (according to your package):

  • Work with you to design a personalised unique ceremony, including examples and ideas or guide you in creating your own words and format for your dream wedding.
  • Conduct a professional service to make your ceremony a special and meaningful occasion, including a PA system for all to hear your vows (top package)
  • Your ceremony meets all the legal requirements.
  • Provide a bound copy of your ceremony.
  • Complete the legal paperwork and and submit to the Registry Office for registration.
  • Arrive at your ceremony at least 20 minutes prior to set up, organise the groom and chat with guests


Please contact me. I will provide you with a fee that reflects my services for your particular needs. The fee may vary for a number of reasons including:

  • Non-legal functions associated with your ceremony
  • Arrangement of interpreter/translation services

I offer a reduced fee for elopements or ceremonies, with less than 8 guests, that I conduct at my residence. A booking fee confirms your booking and is non-refundable. The remainder is due one month prior to your ceremony. Payments may be made by cash or bank transfer to my account.


My aim is to provide the best professional service to each couple or family who chooses me to be their celebrant.

If you are planning a wedding please contact me as soon as possible to book an obligation free appointment to discuss your particular requirements and to make sure all the legal requirements are met. Ring me on 0404 655 567 or contact me by email.
