About

about-me

A young, experienced authorised marriage celebrant from Sydney specialising in ceremonies including marriage (and now so excited to marry same-sex couples), commitment, renewal of the vows, naming day and many other celebrations. If you are planning a ceremony, I’d love to hear from you.

Planning a celebration is often very difficult and many decisions have to be made. Choosing a celebrant is just one of these hard decisions you need to make as there are so many to choose from. Often it may be one of the most important days of your life and the memories you make will last forever.

I can assist you in creating an amazing ceremony that you will never forget. I am available for ceremonies including weddings, commitments, renewals, name givings and house blessings. I pride myself on being understanding, calm and fun in tailoring a ceremony to your needs as a couple. I believe in acknowledging any requests and taking time to listen to the couple’s needs, including now being about to also legally marry same-sex couples!

The Northern Beaches of Sydney has been my local area for over30 years and I have loved being involved in the community. I have worked as a Primary School Teacher for the majority of my career and this has allowed me to develop my professional public speaking skills.

I chose to become a marriage celebrant as I was planning my own wedding and also watched many of my friends get married. It is such an honour and privilege to now be able to assist so many of my closest friends with their wedding day. I am so thrilled to be a special part of couples’ happiest day of their lives and I am passionate about creating the perfect ceremony for my clients.

I am available any time for a discussion about your ceremony and will also help you to understand the entire process. Please contact me by phone or email today.

“Eliza was the celebrant for Richard and I’s wedding and she was outstanding. She is so passionate in what she does and she made the process stress-free and loads of fun. Everything was well organised. Eliza’s warmth and caring nature put us both at ease. I highly recommend her as your wedding celebrant.”

Eliza did a great job. She was calm and collected on the day and really brought the whole thing together. She was flexible enough to allow me to write my own ceremony, which really helped it reflect who we were and what this meant to us. Highly recommended.

Eliza was amazing from the moment we found her on Instagram and spoke to her on the phone. She gave us much needed guidance in planning our wedding ceremony and had some wonderful and quirky suggestions – exactly our style. Eliza was flexible, friendly and ever so calm on our big day – amidst all the chaos. We are so grateful to have had her part of our day. Thanks again Eliza!

On the best day of our lives we had the pleasure of Eliza McAllister as our celebrant… Despite the fact how stoked we were to have someone we know for our wedding, Eliza was perfect for what we wanted. Her professionalism was spot on, her suggestions were very helpful as we had no idea, keeping in mind of what we were aiming for. Her easy approachable caring attitude made it all that much easier. From the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for our special day!

We have had SO many comments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the ceremony, and how wonderful Eliza was. We cannot thank you enough Eliza!

  • Wedding

my husband and I had a Naming Day Ceremony for our new baby boy Ali. It was such a great alternative to a Christening and allowed us to incorporate an Egyptian tradition – a Sebou – into our event. Eliza McAllister officiated the occassion and she did an amazing job. We were strongly impressed by her personable yet professional approach and loved her sentimental ideas for our ceremony.

  • Anna & Mustafa
  • Naming Day

Eliza was and has still been amazing. We couldn’t recommend her enough. From our first meeting she was so helpful and kind and really went above an beyond in every way to make sure our day was planned properly and that everything ran smoothly. I also had an endless number of people say that she was the best they had seen at any wedding and wanted pass her on name on to friends.

  • Alex & Pat
  • Wedding

Eliza was so helpful throughout the whole process. If you want someone who is professional, but also super friendly and genuinely cares about making your wedding the most special (yet individually tailored to all your needs) then you can’t go past Eliza. We can’t thank her enough for marrying us!

  • Jules & Dan

Your services were greatly appreciated and really fit in with what we were after. Both Rob and myself had a fantastic day and were very fortunate to have your easy walk through documents in the build up which obviously alleviated all stress.

  • Peita & Rob

Eliza is simply, an outstanding celebrant! From our first meeting she was organised, professional, patient and generous with her time. Eliza made the whole process easy and stress-free! She gave us all the tools we needed to help create our perfect wedding ceremony which was unique to us. We had so many comments on the day about how much our guests enjoyed our ceremony and how excellent Eliza was.

Having Eliza as part of our wedding day made the day even more special. Eliza is not only organised and professional, she makes the entire process relaxing and fun. Eliza loves her job, and I couldn’t recommend her more highly!

Kyle and I had the incredible good fortune of being recommended to Eliza. She was like a dream come true and through our entire planning stage she could not have been more helpful or caring. Thank you Eliza, you’ll be a friend for life!

  • Sam & Kyle

One of my favourite things about getting married was meeting this beautiful soul, Eliza McAllister. Eliza your youthful, loving and calm approach gave us the confidence we needed in the person who officially made us, husband and wife. You will be a part of our lives forever and we couldn’t have been happier to have met you.
