When you get engaged, step one is to celebrate! Step two: find a wedding venue.

What a lot of couples don’t realize, however, is that step three must be finding the right marriage celebrant.

The great celebrants book well in advance, and it’s a good idea to know what kind of style you want for the wedding before you start planning for other things!

So, without further ado, here’s our list of the top marriage celebrants in the Blue Mountains area.
