Larry Hand

"A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short." (André Maurois) Let’s start your conversation together…

Introduction

After years in other professions from school teaching to public policy advisor to being the Mayor of Leichhardt, I’m now very happy working in civil celebrancy, including performing wedding ceremonies.

This is a natural fit for me as I have officiated at countless civic ceremonies and developed public speaking skills during my many years on Leichhardt Council.

I perform weddings, naming ceremonies, funerals and can act as master of ceremonies in Sydney, or New South Wales country areas.

If you are looking for a civil celebrant with a straight-forward, personable, yet dignified approach to perform your ceremony then please email me. You can also phone me for an obligation-free chat.

Testimonials

Larry was incredibly warm and easy going and his relaxed style totally suited our casual, outdoor wedding. He was the perfect choice for our perfect day.

Vanessa Moratti Womberal

Dear Larry, thank you for making sure our wedding reception ran so smoothly.
You were very professional and warm.
You made it so we did not have to worry about anything on the night leaving us to enjoy ourselves.
​We would highly recommend you to our family and friends.

Bonny Parkinson Rodd Point, Sydney

Dear Larry, I would like you to know what a superb job you did as celebrant to my father in law's funeral. Everything went so smoothly, thanks to the wonderful way you guided the family and guests through the service, especially the more sensitive parts.
