  • Monica O’Hare

Hello & Welcome

Are you looking for a Wedding Celebrant who’s confident, warm, and fun to work with but also organised, prompt and ethical?

Choosing a celebrant who is the right fit is crucial, so before you make that final choice come and have a chat with me.

I’m Monica O’Hare, an authorised Wedding & Marriage Celebrant.  You will find me just five minutes from the centre of Sydney in Darlinghurst.

I conduct legal marriage ceremonies and other civil  ceremonies anywhere in Australia.

For your Marriage Ceremony, Vow Renewal, Commitment, Naming Day Ceremony, Funeral or Memorial for a loved one,  come and speak to me.

Together we will design a ceremony to be remembered by everyone for years to come.

Weddings

From Sweet & Simple to Grand Occasions …

As a Wedding Celebrant, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a simple ceremony in a backyard, your favourite beach or a grand wedding in a distant location,  we will work together to design a ceremony especially suited to your occasion and the budget. I love working with couples on wedding ideas, and I’ll bring your plans to life.

Bespoke Wedding Ceremonies

I love working with couples on wedding ideas, and I’ll bring your plans to life. Together we will work to design a ceremony especially suited to your occasion and budget.

Sydney Wedding Celebrant
Simple Ceremonies

If all you want is a fun, stress free, easy wedding then this is the option for you.  A Simple Wedding is for couples that want a legally binding ceremony without the extravagant extras, yet still memorable and significant, of course all the legal documentation is included.  And you can choose any location around Sydney!   Just call me to make sure I’m available on the day and I will answer any questions that you have.

The Process…
  • First step it to call or email me with any questions about available dates or the style of wedding that you would like and approximate costs.  If all the boxes are ticked we will organise a time to meet in person.
  • Our first meeting will give you chance to ask questions and share your wedding day excitement. I will explain the legal process and requirements and you will know from this meeting whether I am the Celebrant for you.
  • When you decide that you would like me to be your celebrant, you will need to book your wedding date with me and complete the first step of the legal paperwork, a Notice of Intended Marriage.
  • Then the fun begins.  You may have already planned your perfect wedding, or you may need advice on the destination, the ceremony, and of course the budget.  I can help you plan a simple wedding in your back yard or your favourite beach, or design a grand ceremony to suit one of the many fabulous locations in Sydney and around Australia.
  • Rehearsal Time.  You may like a full rehearsal at the venue, or we can run through the ceremony when you sign the final pre-wedding paperwork,  just a few days before the big day.
  • The Perfect Wedding Day!
LGBTIQ Weddings

I am a proud supporter of marriage equality in Australia. Love is love. It takes no notice of age, gender, sexuality, race, religion, background or culture. Now, finally after marriage equality, nothing makes me happier than working with LGBTIQ couples to make their dream-wedding day come true!

Setareh & David

Setareh and I would love to thank you for the great job you did at our wedding as the celebrant. We both had the best time and you helped make it a memorable day. Thanks again.

Kalpana & Senthuran

Monica provided us with an exceptional service. She made us feel so comfortable and made sure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She was so helpful and always catered for our needs especially when we were so indecisive. She was able to combine the legal requirements of the ceremony with our cultural needs effortlessly.

Ceremonies & Rituals

Ceremonies and Rituals can be held for any important life-changes. You may simply need a celebrant to act as an MC, or you may need ideas and planning too.

From small, quiet gatherings at home to big events in Australia or overseas, I can help you to plan a ceremony to suit the occasion and the budget.

  • Renewal of Vows
  • Namings – Baby Namings
  • Graduations
  • Birthdays
  • Life-Change Ceremonies
  • New Home Rituals
  • New Business
  • Retirement

Funerals & Memorials

Nowadays funeral services can take many forms, from the traditional service held in a chapel or by a graveside, to a wide choice of ceremonies and rituals celebrating a life well–lived, or you may wish to hold a living funeral where everyone has a chance to say ‘Goodbye’.

Whether you simply require a Celebrant to introduce the Order of Service or to design a ceremony or ritual, I can help you to plan the occasion and offer a choice of poems, hymns or music.

I am based in Sydney but I’m happy to perform ceremonies anywhere in Australia or overseas.

‘Thank you again, Monica, I know that Mum would have been really happy with  you conducting her service’.
