"The next best man to have beside you on the most important day of your life"

About me
My name is Ivan Conway, Whitsunday Wedding Celebrant; The Celebrant for the Whitsunday's since 1997. I am an Authorised Marriage Celebrant, a Justice of the Peace and a Member of The Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants. I am also a qualified OPD trainer for Life Skills Training, presenting OPD training sessions for Celebrants on their behalf as required in regional Queensland areas such as The Whitsundays, Mackay and Townsville. My wife, Maureen and I have resided in Airlie Beach since December 1997 and the Whitsunday's has been our family holiday destination since 1974. I was christened on Daydream Island in 1944, my parents occasionally managed the island at this time conducting concert parties for the American sailors on leave during the war years. The owners of Daydream at that time were the Moody family who were my Godparents. I attained my Private Pilot's Licence in 1971 and owned my own aircraft for some time which I used to travel away for a ceremony to either the coalfields or nearby towns and Island resorts. The aircraft gave me immediate fast access to a number of island resorts and many of the inland Townships. Unfortunately due to the costs of maintaining and flying an aircraft aviation has become an unaffordable luxury, however, I will always maintain my love of aviation and the memories of over 3000 flying hours.

I have been officiating Wedding Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows Ceremonies and Naming Ceremonies for more than twenty three years on the Central Highlands coal fields, Rockhampton and Mackay and have had the privelege and the pleasure of officiating over 3000 ceremonies here in the beautiful Whitsunday's since December 1997. Being a professional Marriage Celebrant, I am bound by a Code of Practice and a Complaints Mechanism which are contained in the Marriage Regulations 1963. A copy of The Celebrant's Code of Practice document can be obtain from me on request

I retired from the coal mining industry in December 1997 after serving almost 40 years as an underground coal miner, Mine Deputy and Training Officer to further my career as an Authorised Marriage Celebrant in the Whitsunday's. I am committed to my role as a Marriage Celebrant and have officiated at many beautiful and memorable ceremonies in the Whitsunday's and surrounding mainland and Island areas. There has been many great highlights during my career as a Celebrant in the Whitsunday's including officiating my daughter's wedding on Hamilton Island and many ceremonies aboard beautifully restored sailing ships, on beautiful Whitehaven Beach and of course on all of the island and mainland resorts. I have officiated many ceremonies aboard privately owned luxury vessels and numerous charter yachts and even hovering over Heart Reef, on Valentine's Day in a helicopter. Being resident in Airlie Beach, I am able to effectively provide immediate attention to couples contemplating their wedding ceremony in the Whitsunday's and the many beautiful island locations.
