Dr Sumant (Monty) Badami

Anthropologist, Celebrant, Singer!

Introduction

I am a young civil marriage celebrant and anthropologist who has travelled the world studying the rituals and ceremonies of cultural groups that range from the obscure to the mainstream, and from the traditional to the modern.

I have a deep respect for the institution of marriage and I bring a warmth and enthusiasm to each and every ceremony, which is sensitively tailored to suit your individual needs.

I also do baby naming ceremonies, commitment ceremonies and can assist you in creating any sort of ritual that will help you to celebrate the passing of the many other of life’s important milestones.

Testimonials

We had such a fantastic day and the ceremony was perfect. We'd like to thank you, Monty, as you set a lovely tone for the day, making everything relaxed, intimate and fun which was exactly what we wanted form the day. I can't tell you how many people commented on how much they enjoyed your service, commenting that you seemed to know us both really well and had a lovely sense of humour which translated in to a beautiful ceremony.

Many thanks

Katie and Dean

We absolutely loved having you as a celebrant for our special day and we have always thought so highly of the work that you do and your beautiful optimism for life. It really brought something so special and unique to our wedding and we were so happy to have you involved in it! The day was absolutely perfect, and the ceremony that you put together for us was so beautifully crafted and spoke volumes of everything that we wanted to say.

We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing this day with us, and providing us your amazing service.

Thank you so much again.

Courtney and Byron

Monty, It was such a gift to share last our special day with you - you and your happy face and crafted words made it such a magical and warm experience. We are forever grateful for such a memory.

Natalie and Nicole xxx

We were both so happy with the ceremony and Monty's role in putting it together and guiding us through the process.

It was such a pleasure and thrill to have him as our celebrant because he was entirely committed and invested himself completely in his services. He truly enjoys and believes in his role!

I hope I never forget the whole
experience and Monty was most definitely an important part of it.

Gary and Daniella

Monty, we thought you did a great job. You were friendly, personable, articulate and reliable. We loved the ceremony; you engaged the audience well and made it memorable for both of us. We were very happy with your service. We appreciated the thought and effort on your part, on our wedding day and throughout the whole process. You made the experience fun and memorable. Thank you very much!!

Fiona and Simon

We had a perfect day, and a good deal of it was thanks to your help. We really appreciated how you guided things gently along on the day and beforehand. it was never hard to organise things when needed and your 'flexibility' in approach was very much appreciated. Everything about the ceremony was perfect and I can't tell you how many people have said so.

Kate and George

We were totally delighted all the way through. The ceremony suited us perfectly and got so much praise from many of the guests who thought it was wonderful. Monty is an intelligent, intuitive, flexible, empathetic and fun guy who mixes his own REAL talent and skill for this sort of thing with a great understanding of his clients' priorities, issues and wishes.

Thanks so much Monty!!!

Bernard and Jane xxx

Without a doubt, Monty was the biggest hit at our wedding. We found the lead up to the ceremony quite daunting, but Monty grounded us. We loved his care and professionalism and the humor he injected into the service. There has not been a guest that hasn't mentioned what a fantastic ceremony it was and how well he captured our relationship. We knew from the moment we found him that he was the man for the job!
