wild weddings & elopements in the snowy mountains, north-eastern victoria, the a.c.t and south-eastern new south wales

Do you dream of marrying your love in a way that is unique to you? Are you planning a wedding that is all about what makes your hearts soar?

Maybe it’s a big old party in a deliciously opulent venue or an elopement by the river; whatever your tastes, your wedding can be how you want it to be.

As your celebrant, I’m here to help start your big day on a high note. I will bring the goosebumps, the laughs, the tears and the vibes to ensure that your wedding is one of your Top 5 Life Moments.

a bit about me…

My name is Yolande Szery and I’ve wandered along many meandering paths to land here, as a celebrant in the Snowy Mountains, Australia. I’m energised by meeting new people and am thrilled by the challenge and joy of writing ceremony scripts for excellent couples. And then being there on the day, sharing in that moment of marrying? That is my nirvana!

I love more things and people than I could list, but I would swap oxygen for these; my family, music, cold water swimming and good books. Oh, food. Yes, great food makes the list too.

I am based on the edge of the Snowy Mountains, in the Upper Murray and service a wide region around southern NSW, north-eastern Victoria and the ACT.


How it works


Like all things, weddings attract a bit of paperwork. I’ll do most of it for you and guide you through the rest.


No two ceremonies are ever the same – you will share with me some choice information about yourselves and I’ll weave it into a totally unique and personal wedding ceremony.


After your ceremony I will go home and submit your marriage documents – you will go forth and CELEBRATE!
