About Dave

I’m Dave Octave and I’m here to help you have your dream ceremony because I truly believe we can all experience those moments we dream of.  Some of my friends would call me a dream chaser as I am often undertaking new experiences and opportunities to learn mostly because I’m never one to let a chance pass me by.

I love many things including music, arts, theatre and musicals, dance, good wine and good food but what I love the most is love and people. Over the last 20+ years, every job I have had has revolved around people and ensuring that they have the best experience possible.  For the last 15 years I have been an Event Management professional and even became a qualified wedding planner but on top of that I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist, a Radio DJ, a Music Bingo host, a Musical Theatre performer and a Swing singer (you can check out my songs on Spotify!!!).  So, as you can see, I have enjoyed a number of jobs that have all brought me to this point in my life. 

I became a Celebrant because I wanted to bring together my experiences, my love of people and the expression of their love and a little bit of my ‘showman’ side.  Am I a little bit of a show-off?  Possibly, but I am passionate about creating a celebratory experience that leaves YOU in the spotlight.  I’m excited to get to know you, learn all about your funny, romantic, heart-warming or downright bonkers story and create the day of your dreams.

I like to think of myself as a cross between being a good listener, an idea explorer, a dream weaver, a writer, a performer and your new friend!

If you are looking for a celebrant with style, flair, who is professional but with a fun, cheeky side, then I’m you’re man!
