Ivan Kalbstein JP, CMC

The planning and preparation for your Wedding Day can be very nerve racking, and my wide experience as a Celebrant, together with my good sense of humour, will help ease some of this stress. In fact I pride myself on trying to make sure you have fun on your big day, and soak in that atmosphere. You probably envisage it being done a certain way, and I want to make sure it happens the way you want it. Over exceeding your expectations in turning your dreams into a reality, is the minimum I aim at.


I would love to talk with the both of you, and set up a no obligation, no pressure, and free of charge first meeting, to discuss all aspects of your day. I will outline the whole process, and explain all the legal requirements. (This would be great over a cup of coffee). The meeting can be at my place, or any place you choose. The complete cost of your ceremony is negotiable, and will depend on a number of factors, including the day of the ceremony, as well as the location, content, and time. (There is a special mid-week wedding rate.)
If you feel that I might be the right person for you, then please feel free to send an enquiry.

You can read some of the testimonials below from satisfied couples who have given me the honour of officiating at their wedding.

Thank you very much xxxx Carolina and Daniel Caulfield-May2015 Rowena and I were blown away by the wedding. It truly culminated in the most amazing day of our lives. Something which you helped us create, from the time we first met, through all the contact, and to the rehearsal which was so much fun. We have had so much positive feedback, and wonderful comments about our ceremony. We honestly cannot thank you enough!! Luke and Rowena South Yarra-Feb2015 It was lovely having you as our celebrant. We really enjoyed our small intimate wedding. Despite all the external pressures we faced, you made us feel calm throughout our meetings. And you created and carried out a fantastic ceremony. You certainly have a gift for this. We have appreciated your ability to listen, to understand our needs, and draw the threads of our life together into a ceremony that reflected our commitment to each other in a very personal way. Thanks for being part of our journey. Alex and Jessica Mt.Dandenong-June 2015
