A Ceremony By Design

Sydney's most celebrated Wedding Celebrant

I know that finding the “right” marriage celebrant is an important part of planning your wedding day.
I have over 25 years’ experience in helping couples create unique ceremonies, true reflections of their relationship, and a 50-year connection to the LGBTQI community. I would love to advise you and facilitate in making the celebration of your commitment and the expression of your vows everything you have dreamed of.

Finding a Celebrant

More than any other element of your day, it is the words you choose to say to each other that will be the foundation of your marriage.

They should be words that you come back to in the years ahead, to remind you of the truth in your relationship.
Your vows are the essence of your wedding day, and the joy and strength you will draw upon in your life journey together.

  • What I loved most about our ceremony was Sue’s bubbly, warm personality! She made us so relaxed! We have a close family member who has passed and Sue chose perfect wording to recognize this.

  • Scott and I wanted a celebrant with a big personality, a strong speaking voice, a sense of humour and the ability to handle a new and fluid script. Susan Artup was that celebrant. So skilled. So professional. So flexible.

  • Susan catered for our every need in a way I don’t believe anyone else could! After marrying Tristan’s parents almost 7 years ago, it was so meaningful to have Susan marry us too.

  • Two years before we were to be married, I knew Susan was going to be our perfect celebrant. Matt and I agreed she presented as a wise, friendly, caring, confident and nurturing celebrant.
