Stephen Hishon Marriage Celebrant

Stephen Hishon, resident of Lorne, is a passionate and considerate person who is a registered commonwealth marriage celebrant whose clients and their families value him for his personal approach and his attention to detail. Stephen has conducted many rites of passage throughout the Surf Coast, Geelong, Ballarat, Melbourne and his home town of Lorne. He is caring and empathetic. His gentle and genuine nature adds a sense of occasion towards everything he does.

Stephen goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure that your ceremony reflects your wishes and lived experiences. He is very aware that your feelings on these occasions will form lasting and treasured memories. Lorne’s unique setting is a beautiful backdrop for your special day or your memorial. However, Stephen is prepared to travel – see you in Paris.



Saying your special words to your special partner the way you want. Attending to your wishes your guests will not miss the intimacy and beauty that you have created. An unforgettable experience awaits you here in Lorne (or Paris), or wherever the winds of Love take us.

I am a compassionate and respectful person. I listen. Therefore, I am able to create an authentic and unique ceremony. As love is at the core of my being, you will see this reflected throughout the service. I will carefully take you through the many options at this emotional time.

We were just so delighted. We had a renewal ceremony. We didn’t realise how special it would be. Stephen helped us in organising. He had our guests crying and laughing. He really involved us. He didn’t take over but just led us in tailoring a ceremony that meant a lot to us. He brought us back to what the real meaning of our marriage is. Thanks Stephen for making it so special for us.

It is my honour to write this testimonial for Stephen Hishon, whom I have know for some years now. It is not common enough, sadly, to meet people of Stephen’s ethical and compassionate nature. To have this wisdom, creativity and knowledge in a person so as to minimise and serve the concerns for our loved ones at end of life; is a most calming gem. Stephen continues to expand his experience and knowledge in all rites of passage, from birth to death. Stephen’s humility and authenticity is seen from the get go and I am confident of the quality that he will give to anyone I choose to refer to him.
