Hi, I'm Dave

Long before I knew what it actually meant to be a Celebrant I knew it was something I wanted to do and each step of my journey has just solidified that love and now I can’t think of anything I’d want to do more. That is of course other than singing. I am also a ‘Crooner’ and love singing the old standards.

And it is this love, passion and flair that I would be honoured to be able to add to your ceremony. It would be an absolute joy for me to work with you, discover your story and assist you on the next part of your journey.

And what are the rules? Well, with this Celebrant the sky’s the limit. You dream it and let’s see if we can make it happen.

What's my ceremony style?

You’ll find my style to be classy yet fun and frivolous whilst remaining very professional. For me, it’s those personal touches and building a real understanding of my clients (friends) that is key!

What do I offer?

Mikhaela & Rob


Your wedding is arguably one of the most memorable days of your life, and it should be totally unique. By having a ceremony that is tailored completely to you, your wedding will be unlike any other. Traditional weddings don’t allow for much personalisation and the flow of events is very similar. Having a Celebrant-led wedding means you can choose exactly what you want. From choice of readings, to music, and writing your own vows, your ceremony will be made your own and reflect the true love you have for one another.
Your ceremony will reflect your story. A wedding ceremony that your guests will remember for how special it truly was. A step away from tradition, you can hold your ceremony somewhere that has a personal resonance for you.

As well as write and conducting the ceremony, Dave is also a Jazz/Rat Pack singer who can add an extra dimension to your celebration. For more details please visit www.daveoctavesings.com

Naming Ceremonies

A Naming Ceremony is a non-religious alternative to a formal Christening and the perfect opportunity to celebrate and welcome your new addition in a way that truly reflects your family. It is and is a way to officially name your child in front of your loved ones.

But it’s more than just that…..
Adoption Ceremony – If you, like me, have adopted a child an Adoption Ceremony is a great way to introduce your child (or children) to your friends and family and celebrate this special union.

Renaming Ceremony – Are you a member of the Transgender community and have finalised your transition? With a Renaming Ceremony you can introduce and celebrate the you you have always been.

Maybe you’ve reached a marriage milestone or, as a couple, you have come through one of life’s dramas and now is the perfect time for you to reaffirm those vows. Or did your actual wedding not live up to your expectations and you want to do it again with extra flair?

I personally believe that a Celebrant-led funeral ceremony, as with all the ceremonies I officiate, should be personable, respectful and filled with the personality and memories of your loved one. Or it can be totally wild and crazy! I will support and work with you to create a ceremony that is appropriate for the departed, exploring the inclusion of favourite songs, readings or rituals that reflect the person of your loved one.

Dave was amazing from start to finish. From the initial meeting, we knew he would perform a great ceremony.
Everyone loved the personal touch he brings to the proceedings and we had soo many fantastic comments throughout the day.

We had the best day and Dave was one of the main reasons why! The ceremony really reflected us a couple and he told our story beautifully. On top of that he helped us with other wedding related things – truly going beyond what we hoped for
