Here's a Little About Me

" I have a fun & easy going personality and have what I think is a great sense of humour. Even with my relaxed approach I am extremely professional in what I do".

Originally from a small country town called Melbourne, Paul along with his wife Zoe, relocated to the beautiful Whitsundays about 17 years ago.

"People come here for a holiday & I am so lucky to live here!"

The allure & beauty of the Whitsunday Islands and Airlie Beach, being the mainland gateway to one of the best aquatic playgrounds in the world, was the deciding factor to move to this popular tourism destination.

"Did I mention the temperature is also a bit warmer here in winter than Melbourne?"

Paul has a diverse career background working with some well known corporations and many of these encompass the importance of good customer service. Having managed McDonald's stores in Victoria and owning his own Vodafone dealership. Paul is also a licensed Real Estate agent here in the Whitsundays.

You really couldn't live in the Whitsundays without having a passion for the islands and the Great Barrier Reef. Paul is a qualified scuba diving instructor and a regular competitor in the Airlie Beach twilight sailing races.

" I was fortunate enough to be apart of the winning crew aboard the yacht Kameruka in the 25th Airlie Beach race week sailing regatta! .."

One of the real highlights of Paul's year is hosting the Whitsunday Dance Connection annual concerts.

"This is a great local dance school that my 3 daughters attend and I've hosted this event for the past 7 years. The concerts consist of over 250 students and it is quite a big production. I am extremely lucky to be involved, as I get the advantage of seeing my girls grow up on stage and it's a great opportunity for me to get in those Dad jokes!"

I am genuinely passionate about the Whitsundays and even though you may not live locally, I am more than happy to assist in providing you with as much information that you need to make your wedding day a success.

"Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. It can be quite a daunting but exciting time in your life when you’re making preparations for your wedding day.

The choice of all the different services and satisfying yourself as to who will be best can be an adventure in itself. Every website will tell you that they’re good, even me!. Ever seen a website with bad testimonials?

When weighing up who to use, it is important to call them. You need to feel that you can trust them and they are the right people for your wedding.
Remember this is one of the most important days in your life.

Maybe at this stage you’re only researching and looking at options & costs.

You may feel that after 5 minutes of talking with me, you’re happy & feel comfortable for me to be your celebrant. You might also think I'm a total loser and I'd be the last person you’d want hanging around you and your family/friends on your special day.

The first option definately makes for a better ceremony!

Please feel free to email or call me anytime.

I appreciate the opportunity to chat with you and I am very excited to potentially be chosen as your marriage celebrant. 

I am a very active member of our local community donating my time to many events and fundraisers as some of the images below show. I have hosted the Whitsunday Reef Festival comedy gala and yes, that's me in the inflatable fat suit! I have been a committee member and host of the Queensland Cancer Council's, Whitsundays Relay for Life for the past 3 years. This event is a major fundraiser for the research to help find a cure for cancer. I have also volunteered as an auctioneer for the Variety Club and their "Old Bags Lunch" fundraiser in Airlie Beach. I have an active role in the yearly Ray White Whitsunday Ball which is a black tie event that raises much needed funds for our local community. I have also had the privilege of hosting the Whitsunday Weddings and Honeymoon Expos in 2015, 2016 and 2017. I am very fortunate to be entrusted with these roles and I strive to input humour and make these events entertaining and memorable.
