Ron Matthews



Congratulations you’re getting married. My wife Samantha also a celebrant & I have been doing weddings for around twenty years. When I say doing weddings, we solemnise weddings as other celebrants do, but we do that little extra. We will show you round the island find a ceremony site for you, help you compose a lovely ceremony, give you transport on the big day & more.

One of the most stressful things in a person life is organising a wedding. When on Lord Howe its like another world & you know nobody, so its difficult to organise anything let alone a wedding. We started travelling the world the day after we married, when stuck in a foreign country there was always a friendly native to help. We will be your friendly native & freely advise on accommodation, easiest way to get here, put you in contact with reception place, hairdresser-beautician or whatever to make a no stress wedding to fit you.


Thank you Sam & Ron for making our elopement absolutely perfect on 21/4/17. The wedding was just what we wanted barefoot on the beach
with the beautiful lagoon in the background. What a delightful couple you are. Although we had not met you both before, or the witnesses who had come to celebrate their 10 year anniversary whom you had married at the same site, we felt we had known each other for years, Thank you for making our day so special..

Ron. Thank you so much for everything you've done for us, much more than expected. You made it so easy to organise and coping with the number of date changes. You helped with my first marriage and with my second. Again many thanks and look me up when in Sydney next.
