Hollie & Will - The Earth House
When it comes to celebrants... Ben is the bar! Not only is he the most legendary of celebrants, he is also an all round hands down awesome human being! He definitely knows how to start the party and set the tone for what is the most important days in a couples life. He knows how to read the crowd and feel out the pre-ceremony in order to be relatable and pump the guests in exactly the right way possible.
All of our guests raved about Ben after our ceremony and still weeks after, talk about how great he was. Can't recommend Ben Highly enough... he is exactly the right amount if funny and kind at the same time as being uber professional, authentic and relatable! 20/10 for Ben! Best man in the biz!!!
Hannah & Lachy - Frida's Fields
Absolute legend! From our first meeting with Ben we knew he was going to be our celebrant! His relaxed, warm and personable nature made us feel very comfortable and at ease. He took the time to get to know us and our story. He made sure our ceremony was personal to us as a couple and we even got our family involved in the ceremony. On the day Ben was incredible, brought so much energy and also calmness.
He made us feel so comfortable and told our story beautifully. Our guests are still commenting about the beautiful ceremony. Thank you so much! Hannah & Lachy x
Codie & Rhys - The Earth House
We had the pleasure of having Ben as out Celebrant for our recent wedding and he was incredible! From start to finish he made us and our guests feel very comfortable and brought great energy to our day.
We loved having Ben as a part of our special day and would 100% recommend him over and over again. Thank you Ben!
Melinda & Brian - Fins Plantation House
Look up the definition of 'Bees Knees for Celebrant's' in the dictionary and you will find Ben Carlyle's name! From our first meeting with Ben we knew he was the most humble soul to officiate our special day. His positive, loving vibes are contagious and he brought these plus some for our special day. He kept our ceremony casual and light, exactly what we wanted, He interacted with our guests with many thinking he was a close friend of ours. Ben has a way of keeping you present in those imperative moments. He knew exactly what to say us prior and during our ceremony to kill of our butterflies and to remind us as to focus on what we were doing.
Ben you were everything we had envisioned, thank you for everything. If you are about to get married, snatch up Ben quick, he will not disappoint.
Lauren & Hemant - Byron View Farm
Ben was a legend. His style and manner in which he married us was perfectly balanced between being fun and formal. He was joyous, positive and enthusiastic! He was the perfect choice and we cannot recommend him highly enough!! All of our guests commented on how they had never had such a personable celebrant!! If you're looking for a Celebrant, Ben will certainly make it a special and memorable ceremony! Thanks again Ben!!!
Tea & Kurt - Villa Rustica
Words cannot express just how fantastic Ben is. From the initial consult, through to the ceremony, and even the follow up after; I absolutely cannot faut Ben and and am so, so grateful he was our celebrant.
If it wasn't such a process, I'd divorce my husband just so we can experience being married by such a kind soul all over again!! Don't give it a second thought - just book him in!
Gail & Duncan - Cowbell Creek
If you want a boring run of the mill celebrant that gives you a pleasant, yet average ceremony, then do not book Ben!! He was the very answer to our "hell yeah, let's make this day awesome". He's very warm, open, friendly and remembers every little detail you give him. Overall, he's a bloody legend and the best bet for ensuring you get everything you hoped for and more on such a huge day! He's so easy to communicate with and took on board requests, feedback and any niggling requests and was such an incredible asset to our day! He ensured our ceremony was authentic, a true representation of us as a couple!
We couldn't have asked for anyone better to be the one to marry us!!
Courtney & Richard - Tides Estate Byron
We're so beyond happy with our decision to have Ben as our Celebrant. Throughout the whole planning and preparation process Ben was so warm and friendly and made us feel really comfortable. He really took the time to get to know us and created a very personal ceremony tailored to us, it was honestly so perfect. And we had SO MANY compliments from our friends and family saying how great he was... funny, relaxed, inviting... he made everyone feel really comfortable and the ceremony was just such a good vibe! Ben... we can't thank you enough!
Vicki & Dick - Byron Bay
We chose Benjamin because we had such an eclectic group of guests in a small intimate space. He was everything we hoped for. Our wedding ceremony was just what we wanted... and fun, relaxed but totally romantic.
We highly recommend Ben as a Celebrant... so down to earth, easy to communicate with and totally flexible with requirements.
Andrew & Jules - Byron Bay Surf Club
It's hard to put into words just how fantastic Ben is. From the very beginning of our journey with him, we knew we had made the right choice. Ben's warmth immediately put us at ease, and we felt like we had known him for ages! He took a genuine interest in us and our story, asking those thought-provoking questions to really understand us and to craft a ceremony that was exactly our vibe. Planning a wedding can be stressful and overwhelming at times, but working with Ben it felt like we had a friend guiding is through the process. He gave us clear instructions and timelines for everything that was required from us, and his relaxed approach helped settle our nerves through the inevitable Covid-delays. He helped us to prepare for the big day so that we walked in without any unnecessary anxiety - we knew exactly how the ceremony would flow and what we needed to do. What we weren't prepared for was just how amazing a ceremony Ben would deliver for us. We knew he was good, but we were absolutely blown away. Ben struck the perfect balance between fun and intimacy, holding the space beautifully to facilitate a ceremony that was energetic as it was emotional, and as hilarious as it was romantic.
Our guests absolutely raved about Ben. His energy was so captivating and his approach so personal that several of them asked whether he was a friend of ours. We we can now say we are very proud to call him a friend, who we will be eternally grateful to for the immeasurable value he added to our special day. He is definitely invited to the Byron reunion!
Thea & Alfie - The Farm Byron Bay
BEST CELEBRANT EVER!!!! We couldn't recommend Ben enough. Alfie and I couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. Ben was amazing and full of energy. We didn't get a chance to meet Ben in-person before our ceremony but when we met him, it was just like talking to a long-lost friend. He took the time to get to know us and our story. He was very organised and he made everything so easy. He made it personal, engaging, informal and fun.
Too bad you only get married once because we would most definitely have Ben as our Celebrant again!! Thank you so much Ben!
James & Caitlin - Fig Tree Restaurant
Ben was such a perfect fit for us. When we first met him via a video chat, it was Halloween and he had a knife sticking out of his head! It was at that moment we knew he would be great! Fun and loving, he spent the time to get to know us, so he could make our day special. He was very supportive and gave great advice for our wedding day and we loved all that he did, our guests even commented on how refreshing it was to have a guy like Ben marry us, they all thought it was perfect as well.
Highly recommend Ben, give him, give him a call you won't be disappointed. Caitlin and I can't thank you enough!!
Laura & Sam - The Earth House, Clunes
An absolute perfect fit for our wedding. Our experience with Ben was seamless, he was professional, yet brought fun and laughter into the whole experience. We loved how he created a ceremony which really showcased what we are all about. Our family and friends thought he was just fabulous and brought such a great vibe to our special do. Do yourself a favour and meet with Ben!!
Alex & Alisha - Figtree Restaurant, Byron Bay
I absolutely cannot recommend Ben highly enough!! His positive energy and good humour set the vibe for our wedding and his quirky touches left our guests raving about how good the ceremony was. His calm nature kept us both relaxed and he told our love story perfectly. Ben was everything we wanted in a celebrant and helped make our day exactly how we hoped it would be. Thank you being so awesome Ben!!

Kylie & Jono - Byron View Farm
Greatest. Celebrant. Ever!! After being to too many "standard" wedding ceremonies, we knew that was exactly what we didn't want. That's when we found Ben, from the beginning everything was very easy. He really took the time to get to know us and our story too, which made the ceremony feel personal and true to us. We had such wonderful feedback about him from our guests and really couldn't recommend him enough. Plus his bowties are really something else!!

Alana & Daniel - The Earth House - Byron Hinterland
Ben is an all round superstar celebrant and excellent human being! Ben was funny, calm, professional and set the mood of the day with the best vibes! He made both of us and our guests feel super at ease and like we were just having a big party. Prior to our wedding day Ben went above and beyond to make us feel relaxed, answered any questions we had, helped us write the perfect Vows and ran through what the ceremony and day would look like to take away some of our nerves. So many of our guests commented on how they thought Ben must have been one of our good mate as he captured our story perfectly and genuinely felt like an old friend.
We are so glad we had Ben as a our celebrant, he is the absolute best!

Megan & Adam - Byron View Farm
Ben was everything we ever could have hoped for as our Celebrant! He is amazing, look no further if you are looking for a Celebrant for your wedding! He has a calming but really lovely, uplifting energy about him! He wrote us a beautiful wedding ceremony which truly captured our relationship and the energy we hoped to create on the day Everyone at our wedding asked us whether he was a friend of our, which is exactly how we wanted it to feel. As part of our ceremony we had the special 'from the Mum's' section which he read so beautifully. He then got them up to have a hug together, which gifted us the most beautiful photo. Ben is professional but with a very wholesome, happy and kind demeanour.
We are so grateful for him and couldn't recommend him highly enough!!
Lucy & Lucas - Broken Head Pavilions
Wow Ben, we can't thank you and recommend you enough!! You made the whole process so relaxed and easy for us, before and on our wedding day. You effortlessly made our ceremony fun and beautiful from start to finish. You brought the vibe I remembered and loved from your weddings I'd seen you at over the years.... a laid back and super happy celebration where you felt like one of our best friends at the party! Almost every single one of my 20 family and friends commented on just how amazing you are at what you do, a true sign you nailed it yet again.
Thank you so much Ben for sharing our journey and being a part of our wedding day!
Chris & David - Mavis's Kitchen
Ben was the absolute perfect Celebrant to have for my wedding day. All my friends and family keep coming up to me and the first thing they say is how fantastic Ben was on the day. From his style, to his humour, to his ability to being able to comfort my nerves, Ben was able to manage everything without a problem in the world.
I'd give him more than 5 stars if I could. I couldn't imagine my wedding day without him!
Rebecca & Mark - Clarke's Beach - Byron Bay
If you are after a unique, personal and fun ceremony Ben is your celebrant. All our guests commented on what a great vibe our ceremony had and it was the little personal touches that made it so special. From our first chat online from Sydney to our pre-wedding meetup in Byron, Ben made the whole process so easy - he really got to know us, so on the day it was no wonder why everyone thought he was our mate! A true professional with an awesome collection of bow ties!!
Alexa & Obie - Barefoot at Broken Head
Ben was certainly an amazing celebrant, we couldn't have chosen a better fit for our wedding! He made everything easy right from the beginning, was super organised and always happy to answer our questions, My husband and I were quite nervous prior to the ceremony but Ben quickly reassured us and made us feel at ease. The ceremony Ben wrote was perfect, creating that chilled and relaxed vibe we were wanting, wuth the right amount of humour and personalised to us as a couple.
Couldn't recommend Ben enough! Thanks again, Obie & Alexa xx
Breanna & Matt - Figtree Restaurant
Ben was exceptional. His warmth, genuine interest in getting to know both of us and our story ( & of course his bow tie collection ) is what drew us to him. He guided us through the whole process with excellent communication from start to finish and kept us on track. On our roller-coaster of a wedding day, his calming presence and down to earth humour made our ceremony all the more special. Our guests thought he was a good mate of ours. Now he is! Could not recommend Ben high enough!!

Jane & Mitch -Byron View Farm
What couldn't we say about Ben! He truly was the best! He made everything so easy and our wedding so much fun. Ben is such a nice, happy, chill, easy going guy who makes everyone around him smile and that is someone you want to be around on your wedding day. Our whole experience with Ben was the absolute best and we really couldn't recommend him anymore.
Ben, we are truly grateful for you and what a magical day you made our wedding! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Warren & Jacqui - The Earthhouse
We couldn't have asked for more from Ben and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a fun, sincere, professional and personable celebrant. We had initially been a little worried that Ben may have been a little too "fun" and quirky however he absolutely nailed the ceremony and found the perfect balance of sincerity, humour and romance. Having Ben kick off our wedding day really set the mood for what was an amazing day and we couldn't have asked for more from him. Ben was also a great calming influence in the lead up to the ceremony.
Briana & Dave - Byron View Farm
We highly recommend Ben as a celebrant!! His calming presence and laid back vibes made for a very relaxed and happy wedding ceremony! His thoughtful, funny and personalised words were a total hit with our intimate group, who were laughing and crying ( happy tears ) the whole way through. Ben was also very supportive in the lead up to our big day and made the entire process easy and smooth. Thanks Ben!

Ben was our Celebrant for our wedding and I can't recommend him highly enough. He was absolutely amazing through the lead up to the day and on the day he was incredible. He's worth every penny and we will forever be singing his praises. He made our ceremony uniquely us and really took the time to get to know us, our relationship, our goals and the type of ceremony we wanted. All of our guests were so impressed by him.
He's an outstanding celebrant and an all round awesome guy!! Thank you for making us a happily married couple!!
Jason & Emily - Barefoot at Broken Head
Ben married us one year ago at the gorgeous Broken Head. I stumbled across Ben's profile and had a good feeling Ben was the right guy for us! From the get go, Ben made us feel at ease about the whole process and always made himself available should we have any questions, concerns or advice. Our ceremony was fun, warming, refreshing, memorable and we loved that every moment reflected both of us as individuals.
Rave reviews from us, and our guests, so highly recomended!!
Ange & Luke - Warrawong Homestead, Tweed Hinterland
Anybody reading Ben's reviews and weighing up whether or not to contact him for your wedding, well I'm telling you now you're making a big mistake if you don't!! From the beginning Ben was so helpful and supportive of us. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, totally customized so that it was all about us our stories and our love.

Alex & Sarah - The Art House, Newyrbar, NSW
Where to start.... Ben was absolutely amazing. He worked so hard to make sure we were happy and that the ceremony would go just as we'd planned. Ben steadily guided us from the start with his calm, cool and collected demeanour. He was extremely organised, which allowed us to concentrate on the parts of our day, without worry for the ceremony. The day was perfect and unsurprisingly one of the things that everyone was talking about was ".... how good was that celebrant!" If you don't want a stuffy, rigid or imperosnal ceremony then Ben is your man. 11/10.
Scott & Kesh - Brunswick Heads Beach
What an absolute legend! If you're lucky enough to have Ben available for your date - don't think twice, the fortune is on your side on that day. Thank you so much Ben for absolutely everything - for your guidance, support and help, amazing professionalism and your wonderful personality.

Ben is hands down the most professional celebrant you could ever get. 11/10

Quote of the day was "Who was your old friend who married you? Was he from school? He was so awesome!" Showing the perfect touch that Ben brought to our day.

Ben where do we start!?! THANK YOU for being a part of our day. We keep saying to each other that we would have loved to have you stay and celebrate with us into the evening. We were so pleased with how it turned our and you really did cater to our style, which is both a fabulous skill and an excellent service that you offer! We can't say enough kind words about you. We were both really impressed that you also managed to dress to suit our style and vibe, which is not something that a busy bride thinks about in the lead up - those bowties of yours are brilliant!! So keep it up, you look smashing in your celebrant kit!! It was amazing to meet you - we are a very happily married couple thanks a very chilled and supportive approach by you.
Gus & Hilary- Cram's Farm, Tweed Hinterland
We struck gold when we hired Ben to be our celebrant, the ceremony he held for Gus & I was funny, heart-warming, memorable and just plain awesome! Before we arrived Ben had the guests cheering and clapping, definitely setting the tone for what was to come. When I arrived I remember hearing the crowd cheer and thinking, "Yes! Thank you Ben, I feel pumped and can't wait to do this!" Ben was personable, calm, friendly, funny and knew us as well. I cannot mention enough how many times our guests said that was the BEST ceremony they had ever witnessed... they laughed, cried and cheered us the whole way - asking, '"Is he a friend of yours". When we talk about our wedding day, I don't think any conversation ever goes by without us mentioning how awesome Ben was, and it was one of our best decisions to hire him for our special day.

Huge shout out to Ben for the amazing job he did with our wedding last November. From our first Skype interview, right up to the big day, Ben was friendly, relaxed and professional. Often a wedding ceremony is just seen as a formality before the real fun can start, but that wasn't the case with Ben. His enthusiasm rubbed off on all our guests and set the mood for the entire day. Our guests are still commenting on what a fantastic job he did. We can't thank you enough Ben!
Kyle & Hayley - Boomerang Farm, Mudgeeraba, QLD
Ben absolutely smashed it out of the park or the Farm as it were!! From the first moment we sat with Ben we knew exactly who we wanted for our wedding. He was chilled out, funny, warm without being all the butterflies and BS, and it felt like we had known him for years. We walked away from our wedding experience not only overjoyed but hoping we would run into Ben somewhere down the road that he had just helped us pave! Thank you so much for being everything we hoped you would be, I'll make sure I look you up for my next wedding.. That was a joke Hayley.. :)
Hamish & Bianca - Ewingsdale Hall, Byron Bay, NSW

What sticks for me is the fact that even though I was feeling nervous about speaking in front of everyone you reminded me that I was talking to the love of my life, helped me to relax and put my nerves to rest. It wasn't something in particular that you said but just your entire demeanour and vibe. I love that you embraced our untraditional and laid back approach to the whole wedding game. Thank you for supporting and guiding us through the whole process!
Kate & Lee - Summergrove Estate, NSW

Scott & Michelle - Velleron House, Tweed Hinterland
Hi Ben, I just wanted to say thank you again. Our ceremony was magic, both for us and our guests, and you played a huge part in that. We received many comments about how great you were. A lot of the people also said, 'I thought he was one of Scott's mates'! You were a pleasure to work with the whole way along - professional, warm and intuitive. We certainly found the perfect celebrant for us and you have certainly found your calling. Again it doesn't seem sufficient, but thank you!!

Ross & Emily - Barwon Heads, Victoria
Ben - words do not do justice to how, in every way you made our wedding so very special and intimate. You supported us in the lead up, making sure the ceremony reflected who we are as a couple. In the days before and the day of, calming us down and helping us to enjoy the significance of marrying your person, your one. To have someone we trusted to guide us into the celebration of marriage and to sing me down the aisle will be something we will never forget. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Danny & Teilah McKelvey - Albert River Wines, QLD
Having you as our celebrant wasn't like having someone one there doing a job but more that we had a friend helping make our day as memorable as possible. You were able to keep both our nerves and bay and to create a light hearted vibe that we were keen to have. Your patience with our lack of organisation needs a high five too!! Thanks again Ben you were an absolute star x
Wedding of Ryan & Anna - Torakina Park, Brunswick Heads. NSW
A massive thank you to the most EPIC marriage celebrant there is. You had us from the very start with your awesome eye contact (in a totally non freaky way of course ;). I was so looking forward to hearing you play the little acoustic number we choose during this very moment when we walked back down the aisle as husband & wife but I was so swept up in the moment my auditory sense seemed to momentarily leave me.......Not surprisingly, everyone told me you had it going on, looking forward to reliving it through the wedding footage soon. Thanks again for helping us spread the love far and wide. We couldn't have done it without you :) Let the good times role!!!! Love team Richardson
Wedding of Tim & Chantelle - Fig Tree Restaurant, Byron Bay. NSW
Ben you were amazing from the first point of contact; our first meeting was like seeing an old friend: warm, funny and comfortable! You seemed to just get us and what we were looking for for our ceremony, and all over a coffee and a friendly chat. It was lovely to have you marry us on our day, you were calm, smiling, you really engaged the guests and I felt really excited to have you standing up there with Tim and I. Our ceremony went off without a hitch but I believe you could have smoothed over any little hiccup that my have come along. I would highly recommend you to everyone, but I think you work speaks for itself - ALL of our guests loved you and still talk about you to this day! Thank you!

Wedding of Casey & Geri - Teavine House, Tallebudgera. QLD
Hi Ben, Casey and I seriously can not thank you enough for the amazing job you did as our Celebrant. You made us both feel so relaxed and comfortable in a situation where we were soooo nervous. Every single person commented on how amazing the ceremony was and that you were incredible. People couldn't believe that we had only met a couple of times, they all thought you must have been a family member or friend to make a ceremony so personal. I will seriously be recommending you to every single person I know who is getting married in the future.
Wedding of Kristi & Greg - Burleigh Point, Burleigh. QLD
Our heartfelt thanks to Benjamin Carlyle for making our Wedding day so very special. Attention to detail in the lead up to our big day was so professional. Ben truly loves his 'calling' and this is evident in every facet of what he does. We loved the connection we felt for Ben and highly recommend Ben for your upcoming nuptials. Thanks again Ben!!
Sal & Ty - Newrybar Hall, Newrybar
We had such a hard time finding a Celebrant that was genuine and one we were connected with - but as soon as we met you, we knew you were "the one"! You truly made our day special and stress free. A huge heartfelt thank you for all that you did for us! Sal & Ty Casey!
Scott & Jess - Midginbil Hill, UKI. NSW
I have to admit that the feeling on top of the hill was something special and out of this world - to say the least, it is now my most favourite part of our wedding and marriage. I know its commonly said, but I do feel so lucky to have married my best friend! I have heard some lovely stories from Scott, family and friends about the lead up to my arrival on top of the hill! Also, thanks to you, a little bit of crowd pumping prior to my arrival on the hill made sure everyone was in cheery spirits once the formalities started. I also had a friend ask me if we had requested you to wear the wooden bow tie - unfortunately that was your impeccable dress style and I couldn't take that compliment myself. Everyone loved your cool calm nature and easy going vibe during the ceremony. It was easy to be comfortable in your presence I feel confident and comfortable that we had chosen the best wedding celebrant ever! Thanks for being incredibly supportive of our love story and making us both Moodies!"
Louis & Jacqui - Belongil Beach, Byron Bay
We had a great ceremony on Belongil Beach, Byron Bay with the very cool and relaxed Benjamin Carlyle up front. He played ukulele at the opening of the ceremony and made sure everyone was enjoying the sunshine! As for the preparation, he gave us lots of material to help us decide how we wanted our ceremony to unfold and gave us great ideas to make it memorable. If you are after a chilled warm happy vibe, Benjamin Carlyle is the way to go.

Thank you Ben for making our day even more awesome! Best Wedding celebrant EVER!! Everyone, including us, enjoyed your approach and your laid back style. It made us both comfortable and relaxed in an environment conducive of being married and opposed to being very nervous!! Thanks for the Foo Fighters song intro, you nailed it! We were immensely happy with your effort and proud to have you as our marriage celebrant! All of our guests commented on how fantastic the ceremony was and how you set the mood for the after party. Fun, relaxed and having an awesome time.

Wow.. where do I start? Words are not adequate to express how memorable our wedding ceremony was, largely because of you. We could not be happier that we choose you to be our celebrant, we feel like we were married by a friend who knew us so well and your ability to connect with the guests is rare and special. Our guests are still commenting on your ability to capture their attention, hearts and souls and make the ceremony that extra bit personal and meaningful. Many of them also thought you were a close friend of ours who made everyone (especially us) feel relaxed, calm and in the moment. We LOVED every minute of our ceremony and have been told again and again, how unforgettable it was. We can only say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for giving us that gift on our wedding day.

Having Benjamin as our celebrant complimented our wedding day and we could not have asked for anything more. Leading up to our special day, Benjamin was every bit the professional. What made it special to us was his personal touch. He offered great advice, listened and understood our needs as well; and together, we worked as a team. On the day, Benjamin's delivery and facilitation of the ceremony was exactly as we had hoped for and we were left with an experience that will be remembered and cherished for life. Thanking you very much Benjamin.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making our wedding what it was. You were instrumental (no pun intended!) in its success. You were everything and more that we wanted in a celebrant and for that we will be forever grateful we found you. thank you for being our tower of strength when we weren't. We had so much positive feedback from our guests. They loved how different you were, making our wedding enjoyable and relaxed. We are so glad that, not only did we find our celebrant, we also found a friend! Thank you Benjamin.

Well, what can we say other than a HUGE thank you to Ben for making our day so special. We loved the fact that you made our ceremony unique and special to us as a couple. Everything you did for us was such a breeze and we cannot thank you enough. We will definitely recommend you to all of our family and friends.
Justin & Jacinta - Sanctuary Cove Chapel, Hope Island. QLD
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being a part of our special day. Both Justin and I were so happy to find a celebrant who was chilled, relaxed and could take on our weird sense of humour. Everyone mentioned how terrific you were on the day, and you kept the whole ceremony light hearted and casual which was exactly what we wanted. You helped us make our ceremony our own, listened to our dramas, and shared your own stories with us; which made you feel more like a friend than just 'some guy helping is get married'. Having you play 'I want to grow old with you' at the ceremony is something I will always treasure and remember as a highlight of our day.
