Talofa lava, I am Adriano (Ano) Lo Tam, I am a Marriage Celebrant and I love uniting people to their destiny.
Bringing love together and declaring it before friends and family is such a wonderful experience. I am married to my beautiful wife Falute for over 20 years strong. We have five kids that we are so passionate about. We dedicate our lives to showing them that unconditional love, can stand the tests of time.
A wedding ceremony may only be a small moment in each other’s lives, what’s even greater, is the dedication and commitment that is needed to make the marriage last. It’s about longevity and endurance. Having a life partner that can run this race together side by side. To grow old together and still have the fire burning for one another. These are life goals. These are attainable if we are willing to commit to the marriage journey. So, I say to you today, Well Done, for taking the first steps in preparing for the race ahead.
I am a builder by trade, a Pastor by calling and a leader by nature. Public speaking is what I do, I have served for many years officiating ceremonies and MC reception celebrations. I am known to be able to bring people together and I am very culturally sensitive about honouring our diversity and I always try to include everyone in the room.
I would be honoured to officiate your special day and be a pillar of strength for you both as you announce your commitment to one another. What a joy that will be. Whatever size of weddings, venues, locations, formal or informal, religious or non-religious ceremonies I am of service to making your special day the beginning of a lifetime journey. You both deserve the best.
"Beautiful intimate ceremony led by our amazing celebrant Adriano. It was very well prepared, and he organized it exactly the way we had planned it down to the very last detail. We had our guests raving about how beautiful our ceremony was and we can’t thank our celebrant enough for his commitment to ensuring everything ran smoothly. Highly recommend! Thank you once again Adriano for officiating our special day!" - Mr & Mrs Nielson-Saena
"I highly recommend Adriano as a celebrant. He is very friendly, approachable, and easy to talk to. We were very happy and comfortable to have him as our celebrant, as he understood our needs and was patient in planning out the details. Adriano met up with us twice prior to the wedding. It wasn’t only about the wedding, but he taught us what love and being in a relationship meant. The meetings were of quality time and meaningful. Adriano was being understanding and supportive all the way through. Thank you to him, everything went smoothly, our day was perfect!" - Mr & Mrs He
“You couldn’t ask for a better celebrant for your wedding no matter what your desires in the ceremony may be or unexpected issues that may arise. He was very well prepared and prompt, understanding of delays and incorporated everything we asked and more. Adriano is well-versed and adaptive, one of the few celebrants we found who was happy to include Celtic handfasting for us. The ceremony was infused with beautiful symbolism and made our frantic day transition into a celebration of our love that lasted throughout the evening” - Mr & Mrs Monast
“Hi Adriano! We just wanted to say the most massive thank you for everything you did to make our wedding all that we hoped it would be. You provided so much wonderful advice on preparing our ceremony, readings and vows that the day was nothing short of magical. We aren’t big criers but I've never felt so much love in one place than when we were honouring past loved ones and exchanging our promises that we couldn’t help but tear up - and we noticed we weren’t the only ones! You delivered all our little inside jokes perfectly and had everyone laughing and smiling the whole way through. Your enthusiasm was infectious, and we were so grateful for your thoughtfulness in the lead-up and right through to the end of the ceremony” - Mr & Mrs Amiton
“It was amazing to have Ano as our wedding celebrant. We contacted him about 3 weeks before our wedding and he was able to basically fast-track his usual process for us, which we are very grateful for. Ano also helped us a lot in the planning process for our ceremony as well. We are blessed to have had him by our side on our big day. Thank you so much for all of your hard work Ano, we appreciate you so much.” - Mr & Mrs Lufe
"My husband and I would like to thank you so much for your time to marry us. You painted a picture for us to easily follow on our day, so we knew what to expect. You brought humour and optimism and took control despite the weather and failings on our beach ceremony which put me at ease and said beautiful words for our guests and ourselves. You have a very friendly persona and an amazing ability to engage everyone. Beautiful prayers and blessings. Thank you for being a part of our new beginning." - Mr & Mrs Fox
"We are so grateful to Ano for creating such a beautiful ceremony. Despite us only giving him a month’s notice, he was able to represent us accurately as a couple and his words were heartfelt and genuine. He was always available to answer any questions we had and he made us feel at ease throughout the preparations and ceremony, even helping us set up!! We decided not to have a rehearsal due to the nature of our wedding and he led the ceremony smoothly with a perfect mix of wisdom and a touch of humour that allowed for a well-balanced delivery. Thank you, Ano!" - Mr & Mrs Ernest
