About Celebrant Fiona Dunbar King
Hello, Fiona here. I've been a celebrant working from Sydney since 2010 and have tree changed to the Southern Highlands. I already know my around having conducted many weddings in the Southern Highlands over the years.
Coming from a lifetime in Theatre, Design and Children's dance and fitness. The journey to being a celebrant has been a fabulous ride. Sometimes a wild one with the weather and all! During that time I've gained invaluable experience that I’m happy to share.
It's an understanding of what a couple needs to feel supported. Certainty is important! I keep the paperwork simple and efficient + I’m never EVER late! You can see from my photo galleries I have the personality and flexibility as a wedding celebrant to work in with your style, yet still remain myself.
At the end of the day, it’s all about what works best for you. There is music to my ears when your guests exclaim “that ceremony was so you 2”. During the last 10 years, I’ve learned a lot. About people, relationships, and myself.
I’ve often pondered. What do weddings mean? Furthermore what is the difference is between a wedding – the day to a marriage – a life together. How can I help make this most important and intense of days as stress-free and enjoyable as possible?
Most couples have no idea where to start. When is the best month to get married in the Southern Highlands? How do I get married? Where will we get married? What makes a wonderful wedding? Who are good wedding suppliers? Let's talk!
I also play harp and when asked to, love to incorporate the two.
If you have already chosen your special songs, that’s great too; my powerful Sound System system will ensure you will hear that favorite tune miles away.
My mission is to deliver a ceremony that is flawless and relaxed.
To be in your service, to support you in your day.

ABIA Award Best Celebrant NSW Winner Fiona King
What are those Awards about you may ask?
I started out as a celebrant in 2010. Then in 2012, a couple nominated me with the ABIA = Australian Bridal Industry Academy. Surprisingly, I made finalist, which was exciting so I stayed in the game. As all the couples voting were judging my performance it inspired me to try to achieve a wedding ceremony that was 100% on point. Because that's what you want and that makes me feel good.
In the years that followed, through all the challenges and celebrations. I gained valuable experience that could be shared with future couples. Eventually, I won those Gold Stars. Being involved in the ABIA has really pushed me to strive for personal excellence. Most of all, I'm very grateful to all the couples who first of all hired me, trusted me, and then after all the excitement of the Big Day nominated and voted. As it's votes of previous couples who determine the winners.
Some lovely reactions to the win from my previous couples:
"Congratulations "Best Celebrant NSW 2016" WOW! We believe you deserve every point of it! You were an outstanding celebrant for us, and we will always remember you, and our lovely ceremony, with intense pleasure. Thanks for letting us know, and we hope your future continues to be rich and rewarding."
Robyn & Kim

Wow! What a beautiful celebrant. She wowed our guests who couldn't wait to sign her up for their future nuptials. She made our day just gorgeous! Angela & David.
Fiona is fantastic. Professional from the get-go, she made it easy to understand the entire process of the wedding and leading up to it, as well as post-wedding. She has a great attitude and uses her previous experiences well as a wedding vendor. The entire experience with Fiona was brilliant, from the rehearsals of the ceremony to the wedding day itself, all hassle-free. Highly recommended. Louise & Dirk.
OMG Fiona was AMAZING! She made us feel at ease and was very professional. I would recommend her to anybody who needs a professional and outstanding celebrant. Miriam & Geleta.
Fiona gave us the best wedding memories we could ask for!! She was perfect. She got to know us really well, was really calm and relaxed on the day, and understood perfectly what we wanted. Fiona asks all of the right questions in order to get to know you personally! I have also been part of a Naming Ceremony of Fiona's where I was God Mother. This was another fantastic experience with a perfect mix of emotion and fun thrown in. Thank you Fiona! Barbara & Mark.
We thank Ms. Fiona King for her outstanding work we're pleased with her performance and attitude during the ceremony we recommend her and she have our vote as one of the best celebrants. Siyu & Shin.
Very professional. Friendly and made us feel very special. Extra service of taking a few photographs herself and emailing them on to us. Zilin & Roy.
We could not have picked a more perfect celebrant for our wedding. She is a lovely, warm, and kind lady who is extremely good at what she does. My grandfather, who was meant to walk me down the aisle, passed away the night before our wedding. Fiona with all her experience was able to help me through the getting ready process even though I was a mess. We can not thank her enough! Sarah & Ed.
Fiona is a warm, considerate and thoughtful celebrant. She worked with us to ensure we had a ceremony that reflected mine and my now husbands shared interests, beliefs, and desires for the day. I would recommend her to anyone! Amanda & Cathy.
Outstanding, brought our wedding ceremony together like she had known us all our lives. Everyone was impressed! Luciano & Kentaro.
Fiona was able to give us some good advice prior to our wedding. Everything went exceptionally well. She was there early to help with our decoration. We were 30min late because of the bad traffic. She was very nice to our guests while they were waiting and allowed the kids to play on her harp. Hongjia & Nino.
