About me

I was born and bred in Cairns and worked in my earlier life as an Actor doing children’s show, as well as working in the family business.
My mother Dot was the first marriage celebrant appointed in Cairns, and seeing as she didn’t have a drivers license, it was up to me or my father Rusty Rees, to transport her around to the various wedding locations.
By the time I was appointed as a celebrant in 1995 I already had lots of experience with weddings and couples getting married. I have been married for 30 years, and have 3 children.

Cairns Wedding Celebrant

My name is Wayne Rees and I’ve been a Marriage Celebrant for the past 19 years. During that time I’ve married couples all over North Queensland include of some the most beautiful locations you could hope to find. Being born and bred in Cairns, I am very fortunate to have to “work” in such beautiful surroundings.

My ceremonies are relaxed, meaningful and beautiful in every way – a real celebration of two people coming together.

I make sure the bridal couple are both relaxed before the ceremony. That way they are free to enjoyed the ceremony without stress or tension.

I make sure everyone at the service can hear me. My training as a professional actor taught me to project my voice to the people in the back row. I am also the official “Town Crier” for Cairns.

So if you want a wedding experience that you will remember long after the wedding day is over, please contact me so we can discuss your requirements and together we can create a ceremony just for you.signature
