Josh’s hair game is on point, it’s easily the second best in the wedding industry. He also happens to be a kickass celebrant that makes weddings pretty darn rad.

I’ve photographed a few weddings in my time, and I still find that there’s kind of this expectation amongst couples & their guests that the ceremony is supposed to be shit. Because let’s admit it, everyone has been to weddings where the ceremony was shit. So they book a shit celebrant for their own wedding, and we get stuck in this never ending cycle of shit ceremonies. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that Josh is the opposite to shit. If you book him, you’ll play an important role in breaking the aforementioned cycle.

There are 2 things I love about Josh. No. 1 is his hair as it never seems to move. No. 2 is his ability to not only create a fun wedding ceremony, but his willingness to work WITH all those other suppliers involved. When you combine those 2 powers you have yourself a fantastic celebrant and a top bloke!

Josh knows his shit AND will make your wedding awesome. Don’t book Josh if you want a mediocre, boring ceremony 🙂

Awesome [ Aww – SA –omm! ] Refers to all actions, functions and dance moves associated with marriage celebrant Josh Withers. Adjective: inspiring, instilling a sense of admiration and awe. “Watching Josh Withers in action is an awesome sight!”  Origin: Derives from the root words “when I grow up I wanna be famous” original sources can be traced back to 1981 Gold Coast region. Scholars have noted that in recent years the original source has become confused with an American pop group, however all words pertaining to and associated with ‘Awesome’ have for some time been connected with the life works of Mr Joshua Withers.

I like Josh for his off-the cuff style & a little bit because his big smile reminds me of the book worm from The Book Place. I find that soothing.

Josh is an absolute breath of fresh air. As witty as he is nerdy, and totally down to earth. We love him so much we’re recording a ukulele song for him right now. He’s exactly the kind of guy you need for your non-stuffy-non-boring wedding.

This Josh guy said “write some nice words, send me a well-lit photo and lots of money, kid I’m gonna make you a star!” so of course I said “sign me up!” Josh is a great human and a brilliant celebrant. He wears fantastic suits, takes superb selfies, is kind to animals and is generally a top bloke. Some of his wedding ceremonies involve the drinking of scotch. You should 100% get him to be your celebrant. [Editor’s note: this comment was not paid for in real cash. We gave Elle Monopoly money]

WIN FREE SEX, now that I have your attention, Josh is the ‘real deal’, a really nice bloke who brings FUN to ‘celebranting’ (I know that’s not a real word, but you know what I mean). Josh also personifies what being a professional is all about and I love hearing a bride tell me that you are their celebrant because working with you is always a pleasure Josh.

I really don’t mind what you put on the website. Just use a nice photo, like that black and white one from the car on our wedding day. Love you xx

Josh is the guy that will jump in and do whatever it takes to make everything awesome. I can’t imagine anyone more perfect to officiate a wedding and help you kick off the party!

Freakingly amazing wedding photographers

Josh is a rad dude who takes what we call living to the next level. He doesn’t do anything in halves and will go the extra mile for you as your celebrant. He’ll also promise to wear a bowtie to your wedding and have awesome hair. No other celebrant will do that for you!
