Mel, we loved it all! Plus we had great feedback from our family and friends that they really enjoyed the service and poise and feeling in which Mel conducted the service. We were so very happy with everything we would not want to change anything about the day.

Thanks again for all your help, you certainly made our day extra special.

Ben and I cannot thank you enough for Friday. Your ceremony was fantastic and you delivered it amazingly; we have had so many guests compliment you and the ceremony.

You were extremely helpful and made the whole processes so easy.

Thank you again,

Kelly & Ben

Thanks again for the day and all your preparation and help in the lead-up – it was amazing, and everyone enjoyed the ceremony – us included! You were fantastic!

We had so many people comment about how relaxed, natural and ‘us’ our ceremony was; and how great you were Mel – including a to-be-married couple wanting to engage your services!

Luke & Alyssa

Our ceremony was beyond perfect, I have never been to a wedding where such a personal ceremony was written.

Mel, you exceeded all our expectations on what a celebrant brought to the whole wedding experience. So warm, friendly and soothing that it felt like the person standing in front of us on the day was someone we had known for a long time. The process was so easy and enjoyable, and the words we decided on from our vows were simply perfect for us. You produced a ceremony that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you!!

Matt & Kate

Hi Mel,

We wanted to give a huge thank you! We felt that you provided a relaxed, informal and very respectful ceremony.

Most comments were along the lines of how relaxed you were and how freely you worked with our (my) nervousness and made us feel comfortable. The others all felt that we were long-time friends because of the way we interacted and just seemed to bounce off each other. You have a special talent and we thank you so much.

David & Irene

After meeting with Mel we looked at each other and said ‘no need to look elsewhere, she is perfect’. Mel was the first and only person we met with. She showed us from day one how organised she was; she didn’t miss a thing and explained everything in detail. She was always on top of everything and made us feel like we were her number one priority. We couldn’t have asked for more from a Celebrant, we are forever grateful for the beautiful day she helped us create; it wouldn’t have been the same without her input. The ceremony was beautiful; Mel spoke clearly and was well presented, colour co-coordinating and all!

“Thank you Mel, we can’t put into words how happy we are with your service”

Zahn and Chris

We cannot thank you enough our ceremony was just perfect! I don’t think there was a dry eye… Everyone we talked to just kept saying it is the best ceremony they have ever been to. They just felt so involved… Yay! You were a perfect fit for our wedding!!!

Thanks again, the whole weekend was just perfect!!

Emma & Shane

Thanks again, you were utterly amazing and we had such great feedback about how you did the ceremony, we really couldn’t have asked for more!!

Phil and Danielle

From first meeting Mel in the early stages of planning our Wedding we both felt completely at ease that we had found exactly the right person for our big day. Her approach to planning and making sure the day was all about us as a couple was both highly professional and incredibly friendly. Her enthusiasm and knowledge which she openly shared with us really set the scene for making sure the day went without a hitch. For those starting out on the path of preparing for a wedding I cannot overstate the benefits of upfront and early planning for the ceremony – all excellent lessons passed on from Mel

Our wedding day was the best day of our lives. We had originally thought that the reception would be what the day was all about, but after going through it with Mel making the ceremony both relaxed and really personal, we definitely look back at that 30 minutes as the highlight. We had so many comments that Mel was one of the best celebrants they had seen – presenting in such a warm manner, whilst at the same time providing amazing energy to the two of us and all those attending the wedding.

I would not have any hesitation in highly recommending Mel for those who really want their day to be special.

Hi Mel, we just wanted to thank you again for everything on our special day & also leading up to it. The whole process is extremely foreign and can be hard to get your head around. You just made it so easy and held our hand every step of the way, from providing us with so many vow and reading options to your lovely and personalised speech at the beginning of the ceremony which showed how much you listened to our story and really set the scene for the whole day. Simon said you were especially great on the day & helped to calm him beforehand.

Tempe & Simon

When we were thinking about a celebrant for our wedding, Kate and I shared a similar desire for a warm, relaxed and professional person to be a part of our wedding day. Anyone who has met Mel would agree she is the perfect person for the role…..

She exudes a positivity about life and marriage and genuinely shared in our excitement about our big day! Mel was a pleasure to deal with and managed the entire process from our first meeting to the final ceremony with an ease and confidence that allowed us both to totally relax and enjoy the beauty of the ceremony itself.

We are grateful for Mels’ part in our wedding day and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant.

Kate & Adam

We wanted our wedding to be personal and relaxed with a celebrant to match. Mel definitely went beyond our expectations. From the moment we met Mel, her passion and love for weddings and what they stand for was obvious. She was super organised and immediately opened our eyes as to what is involved, not just on the day, but in the lead up and afterwards. She listened to what we wanted for a ceremony and always emphasized that it was all about us and our day. All our family and friends at the wedding said Mel performed one of the best ceremonies they had attended. She definitely helped make our day a special one and one that will be spoken about for a while. Highly recommended!

Katrina & Simon

Mel has a beautiful nature and is very particular about her work which we appreciated. We think she did a brilliant job and would highly recommend her.

We had the best wedding day, everything went off without a hitch. I felt so relaxed on the day, thank you for the part you played in that. Bruce & I felt really comfortable that you had everything under control right from the start. I’m really glad that you encouraged us to put time into the ceremony to make it personal and get it exactly how we wanted it. The books helped a lot too. I’m so pleased with how it all come together. A lot of our guests commented that it was one of the nicest and most personal ceremony’s they’d seen, and that you were a great Celebrant.

You were amazing and everyone thought the ceremony was perfect!

We thought you helped us with everything. Couldn’t asked for more.

Rebecca & Anthony

Thanks also Mel for all your work. The ceremony was so beautiful, you did an incredible job – your warm smile and energy was just delightful for us on the day. Thank you so much.

We would like to thank you for all your hard work, dedication and support with the planning of our ceremony and most certainly for the day.

We couldn’t ask for a more perfect and happy day.

Thank you again, and wish you all the best for many beautiful weddings ahead

Jo & Alan

Just a short note to thank you.

The ceremony was perfect! We had a great time.

Dear Mel

THANK-YOU ever so much for helping us put together such a beautiful ceremony. I still can’t read the sayings, vows or quotes without a tear in my eye. You made the whole process so enriching; before seeing you I was so focused on the dress, flowers, decorations, but soon came to realize how emotionally powerful the ceremony was. Gary and I enjoyed so many discussions about what we meant to each other, and it was a really great way to open up our relationship.

Thank-you also for taking the time and effort to really personalize the ceremony, we felt really special that you wanted to know ‘who’ Gary and I were.

Everyone made comments on how much they loved the ceremony, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the chapel….along with a few cheeky laughs.

I will treasure these words and memories forever!

Naming Day:
I just wanted to thank you so much for yesterday (and all the prep beforehand).
I think the best piece of feedback I can give you was how many people asked me if you were a friend of ours, because you fitted in so well!

We had a great day, with some special memories. We were thrilled we found you!
Thank you so much

Russell Family

Melanie did a fantastic job as our celebrant. We loved how she got us involved in the planning and helped us build the ceremony that suited us.

She has such a calming personality which is exactly what you need on your big day.
A year later I still have friends and family say she was the best celebrant and made our ceremony perfect.

Emma & Alex

Both Gino and I would like to thank you Mel for the outstanding service you provided us not only during our ceremony but also in the months leading up to our wedding day. You were always just a phone call away, ready to assist us with any query that we had and you really ensured that we were 100 percent prepared for our big day, and that it was going to be amazing! We have been told by our guests that our ceremony was incredibly beautiful and that you did such a wonderful job as our celebrant. We are forever grateful for you creating such a memorable experience for not only Gino and I, but also for our guests

Nikki & Gino

The best part of our very special day was having the most amazing celebrant to marry us! Mel you were very caring, friendly and most of all  professional. You really helped make our day what is was. Thank you for helping guide us through all of the preparation for the service; vows and procedures for the day, and advising us on what would make for a very personal and fitting service, and finally what suited to our needs and wants for our day. We were so lucky to have such a personable celebrant. You really got to know us and you understood our situation, and just enhanced any thoughts and ideas we had. I can’t recommend you highly enough in words, simply amazing.

Jodie & Kim

Melanie married us in the winter of 2011.  My husband’s mother was sick at the time and Melanie went out of her way to help us prepare for the ceremony under a very tight time frame.  Many of our guests commented on the warmth and intimacy of our service and that was largely due to Melanie.  She pays attention to all the small details and our ceremony seemed effortless thanks to all of her hard work.  She is professional, sincere and genuinely enthusiastic to be a part of your day.  It’s clear she loves being a celebrant and she takes the time to find out what’s important to you, so that your service is personal and reflective of the couple that you are.  I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Mel we thought you were fantastic. You helped us to create a moving, meaningful and personal ceremony which was the most special and memorable aspect of our wedding day. You were professional and organised and kept us on track during a very busy time. We appreciated all your guidance and tips, and your enthusiasm. You helped us to feel relaxed and comfortable on the day so that we could really enjoy every minute. Thank you for your part in what was a wonderful wedding day for us!

Clare & Terry

To Mel, Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding the day it was. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant – we were so happy with our choice.

We were so happy with Melanie as our Celebrant, she exceeded all expectation and was so warm and helpful we instantly felt comfortable with her and she really helped to make our day so wonderful. The vision we had for our wedding day was a little more relaxed and informal than the traditional wedding and Melanie was fantastic in making that vision a reality. We highly recommend Melanie to anyone who is about to get married. Once again, many thanks Mel

Christian & Melissa

We just wanted to send through a massive belated thank you for being part of our very special day (wow, feels so long ago!). You did such a wonderful job and we were just so happy that you were part of our wedding day. Many thanks,

Words can’t describe the confidence and professionalism Mel displayed during our ceremony, and leading up to the big day. She was always available to answer questions etc. no matter how silly they seemed; she provided guidance and continually gave us suggestions on how to make the big day special, but not stressful – many of these tips we took on board.

Melanie was an asset to our wedding and we can’t thank her enough for all that she has done.

Wende & Leigh

We just wanted to say thank you for everything yesterday. The ceremony was perfect and it was better than we could have imagined.

Thank you for guiding us through the process and for being the person who was able to make us Mr & Mrs Sams!

Wow, we struck it lucky finding Mel for our Special Day! We felt really blessed to have Mel’s warmth and sincerity throughout the whole process of planning and then delivering our ceremony! Mel we thank you for really “getting us” and allowing the Sam and Soph story to be told with such earthy naturalness and poise. We would not have changed a thing and would re-set our day to play on repeat! With gratitude, Love
