Hi, I’m Kez.

My real name is Kerryn but the only person who calls me that is my mother or my husband when I’ve done something silly like leave a cupboard door open.

I’m a trained Opera singer, a former DJ at NXFM and B105 a marketing manager and a massive nerd.
In 2009 I became a marriage celebrant because I wanted to offer couples the chance to really be in charge of their marriage ceremony. Since then I have performed over 600 ceremonies, so I like to take that as a sign that I’m doing a freaking good job.

I have the most loving husband in the world. We are the kind of couple that people stick their fingers down their throats and make barf noises at and we have two loud, crazy, amazing boys.




Happy Couples

Over 500 extremely happy, married couples!

Kez was amazing, I would absolutely recommend her, she brought a fun loving vibe to our day, she was professional, genuine, bubbly, and such a down to earth person. Thank you so much kez.

‘Kez created the most amazing and special ceremony for me and my new husband. She made our ceremony so personal and very much us, not too lovey dovey, a little bit weird and what we think, funny.
From the time I contacted Kez, right through to the end of the ceremony, Kez made us feel like we were family. She was so enthusiastic and happy all the time, she provided us with all the information and support we needed, especially as newly weds, we had no idea what we had to do.
received many compliments about Kez after our ceremony, she was fun, kept our guests engaged and shared our life with those we love the most, our family and friends, she was no where near boring or bland.
Kez kept our ceremony fun but she was stern with our guests when needed, especially with my request to have a technology free ceremony. Making sure the day was about me and my husband and not the guests, as she put it ‘I don’t care if I make the guests unhappy or if they don’t like me, I am here for the you, the bride and groom to make it as special as you deserve’.
Down to, mostly my tears, Kez took control and she made me recover well after hearing my husband’s vows and helped my to regain my focus without making me feel silly.
A massive shout out and THANK YOU to Kez, you are amazing and our day wouldn’t of been as perfect without you. Much Love.’

I still can not thank you enough. You are what people call amazingly perfect!

Within minutes of meeting you, Craig and I knew we wanted you to marry us and as we imagined it would, it turned out perfect! Your friendly nature, professionalism, quirky sense of humour and your creative & original wedding service made our day even more memorable. It was exactly what we wanted, it reflected us and was fun and personal. So many of our guests commented at our reception on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was and you are now on the top of their list for marriage celebrants for when the time comes for them! 🙂

We cannot thank you enough, we will always remember our amazing marriage celebrant

Kez was recommended to us by our photographer, who knew us well. She said ‘you will LOVE Kez, she is perfect for you girls!’. After having a string of uncomfortable introductions with other celebrants who seemed surprised when we told them that we were two girls wanting to marry each other, we were hopeful that we might have struck gold. And booyah, we did. We met Kez (and her adorable daughter) and she was instantly warm and funny and helpful too and she did not even flinch when we said we were marrying each other. She asked us things we hadn’t even thought of and she got excited with us as the day drew nearer. Kez was always available for questions, which helped to keep us calm. In fact, she made our day super relaxed, it was awesome. Kez looked amazing on the day too, we love her style, it’s so fresh and fun! When the day finally comes that NSW will let my beautiful girl legally become wife and wife, we will be booking in Kez right away to come and do the honours for us. We can’t imagine anyone else and we don’t want to. Kez, thank you for everything you brought to our special day, we loved having you there and meeting your gorgeous family along the way. You are seriously the coolest celebrant, Mum and woman and we are happy to have met you.

Kez designed a wedding ceremony that fitted us both perfectly! We had endless number of guests ask where we found such a fantastic celebrant. We highly recommend Wedbykez.

The one wedding guest you don’t want

I meet a lot of couples. We talk a lot about their expectations of their celebrant and their ceremony. It helps me to know whether I’m a good fit for their wedding. Occasionally, I am not and I’m confident enough to tell couples that and make some suggestions on who might suit them. One of the most common things a couple will talk to me about, in these catch ups is the ceremonies that they have attended that they remember for all the wrong reasons. So what’s the one thing that I hear all the time? “We went to this wedding, and all the celebrant did was talk about themselves…” or “The celebrant kept talking about the couple like they knew them.” Now, I have done the weddings of numerous friends and family members so including personal anecdotes and stories of myself with the couple has been appropriate. But
