Big Brother Australia evictee Shane Vincent jokes that a fake wedding between lovebirds Sophie Budack and Chad Hurst in the house was a missed opportunity.
The professional marriage celebrant, 39, would have volunteered to officiate one as he has performed more than 500 wedding ceremonies in the past six years.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia about his new business venture, The Celebrant Circle, Shane revealed: ‘I love the energy at weddings, and I truly believe I have the best job in the world.’

Big Brother EXCLUSIVE: Shane Vincent (pictured) has revealed the shock moment that inspired him to become a marriage celebrant – and the one cheeky ceremony he chose to turn down over his six-year career
During the chat, Shane explained the craziest wedding moments he’s encountered, the most out-there wedding requests he’s received, and how his new company takes the hassle out of finding the perfect wedding celebrant for engaged couples.
‘I have so many out-there weddings and I want more! From marrying people on surfboards and stand-up paddle boards, to underneath waterfalls, and dressing up as Elvis or a medieval monk,’ Shane explained.
The father-of-three said he was fortunate to have wed one of the country’s first legal same-sex female couples in 2017, travel overseas for destination ceremonies, and officiate the weddings of many Australian personalities.
However, he joked that there was one ceremony he chose to turn down: ‘I was asked to do a nude wedding once.’

Of moments that have shocked him during ceremonies in the past, Shane said: ‘There has been crazy moments from grooms fainting, to Grandmas having heart attacks, floods and fires. You name it, it has happened during, or at, a wedding.’
However, it was actually a shocking wedding trend he had noticed that inspired him to become a marriage celebrant in the first place.
‘I noticed ceremonies had no personality and nothing about the couple… some of the celebrants even forgetting the grooms name, not once, but several times throughout the ceremony, and I just said to my wife “I could do this”‘ Shane said.
‘Ceremonies had no personality and nothing about the couple’: Shane was shocked at how impersonal some celebrants were and the lack of effort some made to learn the bride and groom’s names

Shane’s new business, The Celebrant Circle, is a collaboration of some of the best celebrants on the East Coast of Australia.
‘It’s kind of a one-stop shop for couples to peruse a menu of gifted celebrants and choose one that they think would suit their special day,’ he explained.
With five celebrants already on the books, he claims all the hard work is done for engaged couples seeking the perfect marriage celebrant.
