Bronte Price Marriage Celebrant
If you’ve been looking for a celebrant, you may have seen “Bronte Price” pop up in your searches.
But let me tell you a little about the real Bronte Price. I’m a guy. I’m also a qualified trainer – I train celebrants, which I love! And I’m the only celebrant I’ve heard of who’s spent a couple of decades as a senior public servant at Director level in three Australian states. One of those was as Director of Innovation and Technology in NSW. In those 20 years, I got to write speeches for Premiers and Ministers of the Crown, as well as sit on boards on behalf of the government. My last job was with the Victorian Ombudsman. I got to know how to manage people and how to be confident and respectful, no matter who I was presenting to or speaking to. And I got to know how to be the calm in the storm, because sometimes I had to be. Having begun my career as an English and Drama teacher, I picked up some skills that I use every day as a celebrant. I love writing stories, with some humour, some light and dark and structure. And, having acted in several community plays, I can be a bit of a ‘performer’.
I know how to use the ceremony space in ways that suit each couple. I’m wired to automatically think of innovative things. And so, as you’re telling me about yourselves, I’m already thinking of creative ways of making your wedding different from anyone else’s. These experiences and skills have combined to make me the celebrant I am today: wise, skilled, experienced, funny, professional, serious, passionate and bloody good. These aren’t my words – they’re the words my couples have used to describe me. That’s why I’ve been asked to conduct weddings all over the world. And I’ve been interviewed as a celebrant on The Project, SBS, ABC TV, and radio such as KIIS FM, and have appeared as a celebrant on Neighbours. The word that best sums me up is “chameleon” – I adapt and change to work seamlessly with all sorts of couples. Oh, and did I mention I’m gay? I worked with my husband to plan our wedding in 2019, so I know precisely what couples are going through! But that’s a whole other story.
