Newcastle and Hunter Valley Celebrant

My name is Christopher Breen. For much of my life I have worked in roles which saw me responsible for people and their wellbeing – roles which demand awareness and a sensitivity to the needs of team members. Additionally over the years I have been honoured to be an MC at various weddings and parties, facilitated many corporate meetings and planning sessions and spoken or officiated at funerals. All these experiences have allowed me to develop strong interpersonal, planning and presentation skills.

As the years passed, I started to take the time to stand back and as they say “smell the roses”. The culmination of these considerations saw me realising that my passion to “make a difference” was as strong as ever. It is for that reason I became an accredited Civil Celebrant.

Whatever the occasion a wedding, a renewal of vows, a commitment ceremony or a Baby naming, as your celebrant I have the capacity to make your event something that will be remembered for a lifetime .

From our very first meeting, my focus will be on listening and responding to what it is that you want for your ceremony. If you are lacking in ideas I am able to assist you and guide you through the process. I am able to provide input, that will allow us to work together to create your very own unique, “Ceremony To Remember”


Joel and I would like to send you a big thank you for making our day easy and worry free. You were very patient and understanding as we were trying to organise everything from Victoria. We really appreciate all you did, so thank you!
Sorry we didn’t get to say goodbye or thankyou - the whole day was full on and such a blur!!

Chris, thank you so much for being part of our special day. We were nervous about the idea of being at the centre of attention and you made us feel very comfortable, from our first meeting though to our wedding day. You helped us tailor the ceremony we wanted and we feel that it perfectly reflected who we are. Thank you for your time and guidance, we will certainly remember this day for the rest of our lives.

Mr & Mrs Melrose

We were extremely happy with Christopher Breen as our marriage celebrant. He provided us with a lot of guidance in preparing the kind of ceremony that we wanted and we had a lot of flexibility in how we wanted the day to run. The ceremony went perfectly. Christopher also completed all of the paperwork very efficiently so that there was no issue in collecting our marriage certificate.

From the moment we met you we immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. You were just what we were looking for. We could not have asked for anything more on the day, the ceremony was fantastic. It was personal and relaxed with a sense of humour. Many of our guests commented on how moved they were by the ceremony. Thank you for helping us create one of the best days of our lives!
