David Nettle – Certified Marriage Celebrant

David Henry Nettle, JP CMC AFCC

I am a Civil Celebrant (or Officiant) living in Sydney, Australia. I have been a Justice of the Peace since 1994 and a Civil Marriage Celebrant since early 2009, authorised by the Federal Attorney General’s Department to solemnise marriages.

I am also available to conduct other ceremonies.

I am available to work all over Sydney and am willing to travel further afield if given sufficient notice.



I offer ceremonies for all occasions, whether it is a celebration or farewelling a loved one.

Acknowledging the major changes in our lives with meaningful ceremonies shared with our family and friends is a deep and abiding human need. Declaring and affirming our affection and respect for the people we love in front of others marks these moments as a true commitment for the future or as a heartfelt tribute to the past.

I understand how personal and important these gatherings and rituals are. I will work with you to develop a special ceremony, always. I will tailor a ceremony to your requirements and if you don’t know where to start I will share with you my collection of poetry, readings, music and rituals to help you find what you need to create the ceremony you desire.
