About me, Gwen Inglis, Marriage Celebrant
I am a professional marriage celebrant, authorised to perform marriage ceremonies under the laws of the Commonwealth of Australia. I have been a marriage celebrant since 2005 and during that time have officiated at over 700 weddings to date.
I am a member of a Professional Association, Australian Marriage Celebrants Inc. My membership ensures I am kept up to date with any changes in marriage legislation and regulations pertaining to marriage celebrants. The Association’s forum also keeps me up to date with the latest trends in marriage ceremonies.
I have been a finalist in the Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) Awards every year since 2008, the year I joined the academy. Voting for this award is by couples whose marriage I have performed the 12 months prior. I was awarded Queensland Marriage Celebrant of the Year in 2014/15 by the Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA).
In 2017 and 2018 I was voted in the top marriage celebrants in Australia and I also reached a third place in Queensland. In the 2018 Awards for Australia I was very honored with a second place! And this year, 2019, I received the award of Queensland’s No 1 Marriage Celebrant!
I really enjoy working with couples to achieve a common goal and would love the opportunity to create a unique and memorable marriage ceremony for you.You can choose from the wide range of wedding readings, poems and marriage vows I have, you can source some yourself or you can write your own.
I am passionate about working with you to create a wedding ceremony that reflects your special style and unique personality – your very own ceremony celebrating your special day in your special way.
Of course, developing the marriage ceremony is only half the fun!
On the day, you want to be moved by the ceremony and you want your friends and family to witness “a beautiful wedding ceremony”.
My hobby is Toastmasters. I am a Distinguished Toastmaster – the highest qualification awarded by Toastmasters International. My ceremonies are exquisitely presented.
I conduct marriage ceremonies throughout the Redlands, Brisbane, Moreton, Toowoomba, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas.

Here is one of letters I received after a ceremony:

Love, Dom and Suzi Massa”
During my career as a wedding celebrant in Brisbane I have been very honored with many Awards, recognizing Marriage Celebrants. There are not only awards for Marriage Celebrants in Queensland, but I have also been placed in the Top 10 or Top 3 of Marriage Celebrants for Australia. These awards are based on feedback from couples during the year, so for us a Celebrants they are very important.
