Celebrant Kerstyn Walsh
Kerstyn Walsh, authorised marriage celebrant and professional master of ceremonies
Woohoo, you’re getting married, and I hear you’re looking for the best marriage celebrant ever!
My name is Kerstyn and I’m a marriage celebrant based in Sydney NSW.
Am I really the best celebrant ever? Probably not. But I do think that everything I’ve done in my life has led me to this career….
You see, I was practically born with a microphone in my hand! I began singing lessons at the age of 4, and performed in my first concert at the age of 5. I then joined a local theatre company at age 8, and have enjoyed being onstage for over 25 years (that makes me sound old but I’m only in my early 30s!). I’m a seasoned presenter, event host and expert interviewer, so I’m used to having cameras around.
But what does all this have to do with being a marriage celebrant?
Well, it means I learnt the following, from a young age:
The ability to read a room
How to keep a crowd engaged
To not let nerves interfere
How to keep the focus where it belongs - on you two and your love story!
Yes, I’ll be the one holding the mic and telling your story but that’s the key here – it’s YOUR story, and I take great care in ensuring I do it justice.
My style is bright, upbeat, humorous and joyful, and the clients who choose me as their celebrant usually have a wicked sense of humour and want their wedding ceremony to be fun! Yes, your ceremony can be sentimental too, and when I help you write your own vows, the cuteness will always prevail! But ultimately, my specialty is vibe-y fun and a ceremony that you and your guests will never forget!
So am I the best marriage celebrant ever?
Probably not. But I’m very good at marrying lovers just like you and here’s what previous couples have said:
It’s hard to write a review that does Kerstyn the justice she deserves…from the moment I first enquired & spoke to her about being our celebrant & MC, I felt so comfortable with her, and knew with her combination of professionalism and wicked sense of humour we absolutely had to have her for our special day. Kerstyn helped us every step of the way, was always there to speak with and answer questions, and her level of commitment to making our day perfect was next level. On the day, we received so many compliments on how funny, vibrant and organised she was during both our ceremony and reception. Thank you Kerstyn, both myself & Rick can’t thank you enough for helping make our wedding the best night of our lives.

Thanks to Kerstyn and Hire a Bridesmaid we had the absolute best wedding day. Kerstyn not only helped us plan for an amazing day, but she was also our celebrant and MC. She went above and beyond on EVERYTHING, everyone was raving about her and we wouldn’t change a thing. I could not recommend Hire a Bridesmaid more highly, in fact, it’d be a mistake NOT to hire them for at least one aspect of your day, or all of them 🙂 10 stars out of 5!

Kerstyn is the “bridesmaid” you wish you had. Kerstyn has amazing energy that radiates throughout every aspect of her work. She is an absolute bliss to work with, has a wealth of experience and will happily assist you with any request.
Kerstyn took the time to get to know my partner and I and our journey which made it seem like we had our lifelong best friend marrying us and MC’ing our wedding. We had nothing but 11/10 star ratings from all our closest family and friends on the fabulous job that Kerstyn and her team did to make our wedding day so special.
Trust me, your wedding day will not be complete without Kerstyn. If you want a stress-free day, she is your girl!!
Meg and Jack
Okay, that’s enough humble-bragging for now!
Looking forward to helping you create the beautiful, memorable wedding you deserve!
