We cannot thank Tarn enough for being a huge part of the best day of our lives. We had 3 weeks to make our wedding day happen and Tarn was the person that helped get the ball rolling when I didnt know what to do. She went above and beyond to make sure our ceremony was perfect. She was fun, relaxed and genuinely wanted the world for us. Full of humour and love! Exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. Thanks again Tarn!! We are so happy you came into our lives 💕💕

Where do I start..? 🌷
Tarnya was absolutely amazing throughout the entire wedding process. Tarnya made us feel so at ease and stress free when it came to all the technicalities and the formalities and we will be forever grateful for the customised ceremony that she wrote for us & our story. Tarnya was super professional and organised when it came to all of the preparations ,rehearsals & paperwork and was so much fun to be around as she made us feel so very comfortable, like we’d known her for years. Highly recommend ❤️❤️❤️

Tarn, your relaxed nature and sense of humour made the day a breeze and one we will always remember and cherish 💕 it is so clear that you love what you do as you were able to make our ceremony so unique to us as a couple and so thoughtfully included our beautiful daughter into the ceremony. Thank you again 😌 Mr & Mrs JUDD x
Nalini and Josh
Where do I start… This amazing lady loves what she does and it showed in every part of our communication with her. She will help tailor your ceremony to reflect the people that you are and I know that she cares about each and every one of her couples unconditionally and loves making each and every day as amazing as she can. We had our wedding in Tasmania and she was more than happy to fly here for our special day. Thank you Tarn for helping make our day so amazing and we are truely blessed to have had you here with us. We can’t thank you enough, you’re truly an incredible lady!
Geoff and Haylee
Geoff and I would just like to thank you Tarn for all your amazing work and efforts for the lead up and the day of our wedding. When we first met up with you we both knew you were perfect for us and would make our day as special and wonderful as you did. Even tho it rained you still managed to pull off an incredible ceremony. Thank you so much and we will be highly recommending to you many people. Geoff and Haylee xx
Georgia and Brendan Eddy
I don’t even have words to describe how amazing this woman is!! She is an absolute gem and I will recommend her to every single person I know. The whole process was relaxed and seamless. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for her help and support in the lead up and the day of my wedding.
Paul and Glenda
Tarn is the absolute best. From the first meeting my husband and I had we connected start away. She always had time to chat and answer my questions.
Tarn has a great sense of humour, she is kind and caring. She made our ceremony so special. I highly recommend Tarn 🌻
Love From Mr & Mrs B
Colin and Chenelle
We were fortunate enough to have been recommended Tarnya and from the minute we met with her we knew we had struck gold. We sat down with her at her beautiful “At Stella’s” and she was just delightful. It didn’t feel formal and she was genuinely interested in ensuring our formalities for the ceremony were exactly what we wanted. We had an amazing trial run a day or two before and she eased our nerves about the running of it all. On the day she was warm, charming and we were so pleased to have her officiate our special day. She truly made us feel like we had known her for years and couldn’t have asked for a more prefect celebrant.
Thank you so much Tarn! X
Dan and Haylee Robbie
We couldn’t thank Tarn and be happier with our day any more if we tried.
She made the process easy and fun- not a stress in the world.
On the day she made us, and everyone else laugh and cry in all the right places making it so special for us both. Her ideas and friendly suggestions helped us plan a day we had no idea how to plan and made the day so memorable.
We couldn’t be any happier at all.
Thank you Tarn for being the most amazing Celebrant and spokes person for us at our Wedding! Your one of a kind and truly amazing xx
Clayton and Whitney Stockman
The best celebrants to beat them all! One of our best decisions for our wedding was inviting Tarnya along for the ride. From her positive outlook to her amazing personality that completely bonded with us. She provided a unique experience of which we could only hope for and boy did she deliver. Tarnya went above and beyond- she embraced our native language and opened our ceremony in our tradition tongue. She soaked up our culture and allowed us to feel every emotion possible! Thank you Tarnya for making our wedding day! Like us, you were meant to be!

To all future bride & grooms searching for an amazing marriage celebrant, Stop looking as you’ve found her!!!!! Tarnya Bennett from “I Do For You”. One of the many things that go into planning a wedding is trying to find a marriage celebrant that you can feel comfortable & connect with & thought where do I start?? I know “Google” typing marriage celebrants & found I Do For You. There was a video of Tarn speaking with so much passion about what she does & thought WOW!!! This woman is incredible & I want her to be my marriage celebrant. Luckily she was available & the booking made. At our first meeting I felt the connection straight away along with my fiancé Den. I cannot speak highly enough of this gorgeous women but I’ll try, she is so genuine & down to earth, she has a beautiful personality that is full of love, honesty, positivity, humour & respect & she listens!!!!!!to what YOU!!! want she truly does. You can feel the passion in her voice that lets you know that she loves what she does & that it’s not just a job to Tarn. She makes you feel like you are her number one priority & will work with you to make sure your ceremony is a magical one & ours was exactly that. I felt sad that our journey had to come to an end but when I lost a marriage celebrant I gained a friend. Thank you Tarnya Bennett for being YOU!!! & for being apart of our special day. How lucky we were to have found you.
Justine & Nathan
Nathan & I were living in Sydney and planning a wedding on the Gold Coast. When we finally met Tarnya for the first time she was so flexible around our hectic schedule trying to cram so much planning into one weekend. After talking for just 5 minutes I felt like I had known her for years and she totally understood what we wanted for our big day despite all our uncertainty. She made us feel so comfortable, in control and still had great advice along the way. Tarnya truly does customise every aspect of her services to suit you. Communicating with her through the whole process was super easy and I was never waiting long on a reply. I’m so glad it was Tarnya that we chose to be part of special day because she made it magical!
Nick & Ginni
Tarnya Bennett this photo captures the true essence of our day.. Thanks to you the No.1 wedding celebrant in Qld we had the wedding that we wished for..relaxed and fun.. Nick and I knew from our first meeting with you that we had made the best choice for us.. So professional and so hilariously funny… thanks Tarn xx
Meghan and Rick
At this point in the ceremony I have no idea what was being said, all I know is a picture speaks a thousand words! From the moment we met Tarn we knew she was the one, she is funny, witty, lovely and everything we wanted for our ceremony. She was the first celebrant we met with, and she was the last – we were sure that she was going to set our special day off just the way we wanted. Everything was seamless, and what a ceremony to remember! Our guests complimented our ceremony and it represented everything and more of who we are. We can’t thank you enough Tarnya Bennett and thank you so much for being such a significant part of our special day – we wouldn’t change anything (well, possibly the rain). Thank you so much, and it is no wonder she is QLD No 1 celebrant!

So highly recommended!

From our first meeting we knew Tarnya was the perfect celebrant for us! She’s bubbly, outgoing and very professional and all the things we were looking for!
Not only did Tarnya make it all legalised, she made it very personalised and one of a kind for us, our parents and our guests and she had us giggling, teary eyed and most of all helped us commit our love to one another.
We cannot thank u enough for all the effort you put into making our day so special! It was so easy, personalised and extremely touching and I would highly recommend you to all the beautiful brides out there!!!
Thank u so much!

Stevie & Mitchell
You are so amazing at what you do Tarn and I’m so glad i had been referred to you by a friend from the moment Mitchell and I met with you we knew you would be our perfect Celebrant… and that, you defiantly were!!!
Your ideas and attention to detail for our ceremony was fabulous and you were so easy to work with. All our guests especially our close family raved about how good you were. You certainly set the pavement for the rest of our magical day and we cant thank you enough.
Big Hugs And Kisses
I had just moved the Gold Coast and I had said to my wedding planner, can you recommend a Celebrant?…. we would like someone who is upbeat, can get the audience involved, and who we can have a laugh with, so it’s all not so serious. Our planner recommended a few and the first website I checked out is was Tarnya Bennett – I went no further than that. She seemed exactly what we were looking for! And thank our stars she was available! From the moment I made contact with Tarn she was welcoming, happy and professional. She easily came down to our level whilst still maintaining and portraying the serious side. She accommodated all our needs and wants and she was also able to think of some ideas that we absolutely loved; things that really suited us and that we used in the day. Tarn accepted us for us. She made our ceremony complete and I couldn’t imagine it any differently. It was almost like having someone we have known for years marry us, and on such a momentous day that is something that is really special. I wish we could get married again, and I could think of no-one else that we would wish do it! This really is Tarn’s calling!
Kylie & Sam
Tarnya is absolutely amazing! We really couldn’t imagine our wedding day without her! I knew as soon as I emailed her that this was the woman we wanted to use, our first meeting got us excited and the wedding was even better then we could imagine. Tarnya is sincere and hilarious all in one. Our guests could not stop talking about how great she was. We chose to write our own vows and she was there to help us out with them too. Tarnya fed of our connection and put that in to our ceremony. Seriously happy with our choice! I hope your still around working when it’s time for us to renew our vows. The day was so special. Thank you!
Ben and Michelle Lowe
Tarn is a wonderful, genuine down to earth person. She made our wedding so easy and relaxed. From the first moment we met her we new she was the celebrant for us. She asked the important questions and tailored the perfect ceremony. We’re so happy to have had Tarn play a part of our special day.
Tiffany and Mani Virk
The most amazing wedding celebrant! Tarnya is professional, down to earth, super friendly and hilarious! Tarnya makes you feel that comfortable, that it’s as if you’ve known her your entire life. My husband and I highly recommend Tarnya to anyone who is looking for a wedding celebrant who is incredibly gifted and unique and wants to add that little bit of ‘something more’ to their very special day!
Tabitha & Brad
The moment we met Tarn we knew she was the one for us. We sat and talked for 3 hours. We told her our love story and she put together the most amazing ceremony that had people laughing and crying. There were people on my FB quoting her for days. “In any reality; I’d choose you.” The days leading up to and the day of the wedding were a disaster (I won’t go into detail) to the point where I wanted to call my husband to be while he was standing at the alter waiting for me and beg him to run away with me and elope at the courthouse. I was not a happy bride to say the least. As I was walking up the hill to the ceremony site; Tarn saw me and met me halfway and saw in my face how upset I was. She threw open her arms and I just fell into them almost in tears. (I’m choked up just writing this) She calmed me down and reminded me that it was just me and Brad now, that nothing else mattered at that point. That moment with Tarn will forever warm my heart.
Tim and Kelly Baz
With Tarns at the helm, there is never a dull moment!! The boring formalities are a no longer boring. She is upbeat and versatile and also very accommodating. She loves what she does and you can see that in every facet of her work. She is funny and down to earth and makes you feel relaxed and at ease. She directs you when you need directing, but in the most calm and professional way. She has the ability to read your body language and tells you to take a breath when you forget how to breathe. We both have so much love for Tarns and what she helped us create on our special day.
Donna Perfect & Michael Bennett
Tarnya Bennett married us on Miami Beach Gold Coast October 2nd 2015 and what a magical day it was. Tarnya leaves no stone unturned with her attention to detail and professionalism, making our day amazingly memorable.
Tarnya is such a caring and thoughtful person she had even managed to arrange a perfect Gold Coast beach day for us, with blue skies and not a breath of wind……….Simply Perfect.
Thank you Tarnya for making our special day even more special.

My husband and I got married but Tarn just over 8 months ago now and I don’t think I have enough words to describe this amazing women, she is loving, caring, thoughtful, helpful to say the least. On the lead up to our special day I was so worried about walking down the aisle and Tarn being the amazing women she is helped me with this. She is a one of a kind women and I would recommend her and have full trust in her to make anyone’s day as special as she made ours. We love you Tarn and again cannot thank you anymore. Lots of love

Kelly and Tim Sheppard
Tarn is hands down the warmest, loving and cheekiest person I have met. We are very laid back people and that is exactly how she made our ceremony! There was nothing she couldn’t do and for that i will forever grateful. Highly highly recommended….
Neira and Stephen
Tarn, THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH for a FANTASTIC OUTSTANDING job you have done at our wedding. We heard so many times in the days after the wedding that “It was the best wedding”, “celebrant was so warm and engaging”, “celebrant was fabulous”, “I want your celebrant to marry us again”… !!! People have loved the wedding and you have been such a massive part of making it such a success!! We both think we have done an outstanding job by booking you … we have tapped ourselves on the back multiple times over after the wedding. Hehe! And when we saw you won the best celebrant award, we could not have been more proud of you, as you truly deserve it!! Well done!!
Thank you so very very much for being there with us !!
I found Tarn on the Internet when I was looking for an affordable celebrant to just complete the ‘legal’ paperwork, as I was having the celebrations overseas in a few months but wanted to become legally married in Australia first. I’m so lucky I found her to marry us because not only was she affordable, but she put SO much effort into making the day special, even though we were just expecting to sign a few documents. Thanks to Tarn, our day ended up being a beautifully memorable day that we can look back on and love as our ‘Australian wedding day’. She also has helped me so much with the ceremony for my overseas wedding, it’s just amazing. I cannot recommend anyone else more if you are looking for a celebrant that is professional, excited, committed and passionate about your wedding.
Thankyou Tarn for making our day perfect
Sam and Brooke

Jules and Leah
Tarn is the most truly wonderful, caring women I’ve ever met. She worked with us on short notice with a smile on her face. We both hate being in the spotlight but her words felt like they were just for us and no one else was there. Fit us perfectly and feel like we made a friend in the process.
Ben and Amy
Would like to say thank you so so much to Tarnya Bennett !!! If anybody anywhere is looking for an amazing celebrant she was the best.
Thank you Tarnya
