You are one step closer to that special day!
My name is Graeme. I’d consider myself a naturally outgoing and gregarious person. I spent many years in the corporate world but have now spent as many running my own businesses in which my simple mantra has always been about personal growth of those around me.
I am a marriage officer registered with Home Affairs, and able to conduct civil unions, same-sex marriages and wedding ceremonies across religious boundaries. I am an experienced speaker and presenter that always strives to add real value to an event.
When I’m not pursuing my passion for business or officiating weddings, I’m out on my bike or spending my time collecting (older) motorcycles - one day I’ll grow up but for now this will do…
So, whether you prefer a relaxed wedding with only the two of you present, or something large and fabulous, I would be very happy to help you devise a ceremony to suit your needs, be it in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Free State or Gauteng, I’ll be there.
Caitlin and I were looking for the perfect person to officiate our wedding ceremony. We looked around and no other minister/officiate got to know us as a couple, until we met Graeme. From then, Graeme made us really comfortable, we could ask him for absolutely anything, and he helped us find the words we needed for our perfect day. Through this process, Graeme has become part of the family, a person we cherish and respect and to whom we owe our thanks for giving us the day of our dreams.
Wade & Caitlin
I just wanted to say thank you, yesterday was perfect and exactly what we wanted. The poem was a brilliant addition. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. So thank you again from myself and Philip.
Nicole & Philip
What a great choice we made to have Graeme as our wedding officer. He delivered a relaxed, personal and completely tailor-made experience to our day. From the start there was enthusiasm and genuine involvement as if it was his own wedding!! With advice and encouragement along the way. Thank you Graeme for making the ceremony, the most important part of the day, absolutely magical.
Jill & Johan
Graeme has made my job less stressed by being professional and knowledgeable in what proceedings needed to be done from day one. He is a humble, warming and wise man who brings a sense of comfort and love when carrying out the ceremony. I look forward to future jobs with such a trustworthy and accomplished man.

Same Sex Marriages
These marriages are equal to any other, but are covered by different legislation (an unfortunate reality that we still have to deal with). I am registered to do these.
Large & Small Weddings
Whether its 5 or 500 people, I will script and deliver a personalised occasion to suit your needs.
Foreign Resident Marraiges
South Africa is a popular wedding and tourist destination for wedding ceremonies. I can assist anyone wishing to have a legal marriage in South Africa.
Master of Ceremony
Should you require a Master of Ceremonies, this can be arranged drawing on my experience as a speaker and presenter.
Should you want the minimum legal requirement I could marry you at your home, or any where else you feel comfortable. On top of that I will do all of the Home Affairs formalities.
While respecting your personal religion, I perform inter-denominational ceremonies tailored to the couple.
