About Me

who is the speechwriter celebrant?

I’m Nicole Thomson-Pride. I’m a speechwriter and Authorised Marriage Celebrant.

As a speechwriter, I’ve written speeches for Prime Ministers, CEOs and keynote speakers. I’ve spent years perfecting the craft of connecting an audience to a story through the power of spoken words. I became a marriage celebrant to offer couples getting married that exact same expertise. I use my skills as a speechwriter to help couples make saying ‘I do’ the best part of their wedding day.

I’ve also worked in communication for over a decade and freelanced as a journalist. I’ve had stories published in many major Australian media outlets. 

I’m passionate, experienced, professional and vibrant.

how am i different to

Other marriage celebrants?

Well, for starters, I’m a speechwriter. There aren’t too many speechwriters in this world. We’re a rare breed. What that means for you is that your wedding ceremony — your love story — will be written and delivered with unparalleled expertise.

I’ll help you create a wedding ceremony that is modern and memorable, and celebrates your unique love story.

As well as being a speechwriter, I hold several qualifications, including a Master of Arts (Media and Communication), Bachelor of Business (Public Relations), Diploma of Professional Writing and a Certificate IV in Celebrancy. 


I love telling people’s stories. It’s not a job or task, it’s a privilege and an honour. I live life with intent and purpose, and I love what I do. I’ll bring this passion to your wedding day.


I’ve written articles for Australia’s leading news sites, as well as speeches for Prime Ministers. When you book me, you’re booking an experienced speechwriter and storyteller.


For over a decade, I’ve worked in Public Relations and been involved in organising events. I’ve advised CEOs and managed teams. You can trust, on your wedding day, I’ll bring my A-game and make sure your wedding ceremony runs smoothly.


I’m young(ish) and I know what it takes to stand in front of a crowd and captivate their attention. I will make sure your wedding ceremony sets the tone and gets your party started.

The biggest day of your life deserves the most perfect words.
