Everyone commented how personal and suited to us the ceremony was. Mel took the time to get to know us, and captured the essence of our relationship and our story. Such thoughtfulness and attention to detail helped create the perfect ceremony for our perfect day.

We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. You made our day so relaxed and easy. We felt so comfortable standing up there with you. I had imagined exactly how our ceremony was going to be for a year before the day happened and I’m so thankful we found you who made it flow so easily.

Mel was professional yet warm and made us feel comfortable right from the very start. We truly felt she took the time to hear and learn our story…Mel went out of her way to make sure my husband’s grandma was ok, after we included some words which had been written by her husband who passed the week before the ceremony. It really stood out as an example of how kind and thoughtful Mel is.

Mel was INCREDIBLE! I would highly recommend her to any couple looking for a wedding celebrant!
Right from the start, Mel was personable, flexible, organised and so willing to make our day everything we wanted it to be! She was there to answer any questions that we had and we felt very comfortable speaking to her about all our worries, ideas and inspiration!

Mel is a wonderfully kind, thoughtful and fun celebrant. She instantly makes you feel at ease from the moment you meet her and she is genuinely interested to get to know you and hear about your love story. Our ceremony on the day was nothing short of magical and felt like a flower filled dream.

Thankyou so much for being such an important part of our wedding. You put our thoughts into words just right and we think you captured our personalities perfectly. We would recommend you to others in a heart beat. We can’t thank you enough!!!
Mel was one of the best finds for us in organising our wedding. She is a lovely person that worked hard to ensure that she captured the essence of what we wanted for our ceremony and it was perfect. We had many very positive comments about Mel, and we can’t recommend her highly enough. Thanks again Mel, we loved having you part of our day x

We couldn’t recommend Melanie more. Our ceremony was perfect and exactly what we hoped for because Melanie really captured who we are and what we wanted from our first meeting. She’s professional, creative, a great writer, diligent, warm and the perfect amount of formal. She’s hugely detail orientated which we appreciated so much as we knew everything was sorted come the day of our wedding. Thank you Melanie for being such a massive part of our day, you fit into our wedding seemlessly. You’re a wonderful celebrant so we’re so glad we found you through recommendations.
It felt like we had known Mel forever and she perfectly told our love story at our wedding. She was an expert in giving us and our guests the perfect ceremony. Thank you Mel for making things so easy, and for making our day so much more memorable. x

Melanie spent time thoroughly getting to know us as a couple, making sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and took care in capturing the vibe we wanted and in incorporating the content we chose. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a celebrant. We were very happy, top notch!

We imagined something special on the beach, but personally I never would have thought we would end up with something so warm and sentimental, and so in line with our deepest wishes. We felt that you understood us completely, and your words reminded us again just how much we love each other.
Thank you so much for being our celebrant. The ceremony was perfect thanks to you. You captured us so well that everyone was saying how well you must know us. It was so elegant and relaxed. Even with little miss Sophie joining in ❤ We felt instantly comfortable with you right from the start and your beautiful nature came across on the day. You made the process so easy and yet so intimate. Thank you for taking the time to put it all together and being a wonderful celebrant, memories we will treasure forever.
The perfect day requires the perfect support. Melanie, you have indeed been our lighthouse at multiple occasions. Being from overseas planning a same-sex wedding in New Zealand may not have been the brightest idea my wife and I came up with but it was indeed one of the most romantic ones! You were proactively supportive and had a very comprehensive plan with easy steps to follow throughout the entire planning. We wonder if you were also the reason why the sun decided to shine right above our heads on our wedding ceremony! How magical was that? Thank you for your support; we will not hesitate to recommend you!
We just wanted to say ‘thank you!’ for taking the time to get a feel for us and the type of ceremony we wanted. You really captured the essence of us and you delivered the ceremony in such a heartfelt, warm and engaged way. You put us at ease and you set the scene so beautifully on our special day. It and you were just perfect.

Melanie, it was fabulous to work with you to plan our wedding ceremony, you made the whole process really easy and were able to ease our nerves during the preparation and provide guidance the whole way through. We would have no trouble recommending you as you are a friendly down to earth person to work with.

I just wanted to say thank you again for being our celebrant you were amazing. Everyone loved the ceremony.
Thank you … for being our celebrant. The ceremony was fantastic and we really appreciated the support you gave us through the whole occasion. It felt like a really intimate ceremony 🙂
Thank you so much Mel for being our Celebrant! You were amazing and everyone said that the ceremony was beautiful. We’re very glad that we found you!! Mrs and Mrs Laing
I just wanted to say thank you sooo much for everything you did yesterday to make their day so special! You really did set the scene for the entire event…Your natural ability to put people at ease and roll with whatever came your way (planes and children!) was just what the day called for! And the way that you told their story and wove Hansi’s Sri Lankan heritage seamlessly into the ceremony made it all the more special! Sue (the MC)
This day was made extra special because of your patience, guidance and support. Thanks for your sense of humour along the way too. You are wonderful! Love, Anthony and Jo.
Was a brilliant day and we are so happy we picked you to be there as it made our day. Mel thanks so much all the guests were commenting how great the ceremony was and how it reflected us perfectly – that’s your talent 🙂
I don’t even know how we can possibly thank you enough for the absolutely amazing and special ceremony you put together for us – it was just perfect! From meeting you initially, your support the day before [at the rehearsal], and on the day itself, we couldn’t have asked for a lovelier person to be a part of it. It was magical! We can’t stop talking about it all! Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts 🙂 With love, Mr and Mrs Flynn! Xx
Thank you so much being part of our special day – we had so many positive comments from our guests about you. The ceremony was the highlight of the day – we have just started to come back down from cloud 9! Love, Mr and Mrs Robinson.
What an absolutely amazing day our wedding was, everything was just perfect! We really can not thank you enough, we were beyond happy to have you as our celebrant and you made our day so special. You made us both feel so confident about the day and we are so happy the ceremony was completely “us” – nice and relaxed and everything we could have imagined. We had so many compliments about what a beautiful ceremony it was.
“Mel was everything we could have hoped for in a celebrant and more. As we were planning our wedding from the UK, we first met Mel over Skype and organised much of our ceremony with Mel via Skype. Although that can sometimes be a difficult way to communicate, we felt immediately comfortable with Mel – it was like chatting with a longtime friend – and the whole process was very easy. The end result was a completely personalised ceremony that couldn’t have been more “us”. Mel was also brilliant in the lead up to the day – she guided us all through a rehearsal and remembered everyone in our families’ names (very impressive!). On the day she made us feel completely relaxed and in control and many of our guests commented that they had assumed that we had known each other for years. We would absolutely recommend Mel.”

“I thought you did an amazing job and spoke from the heart. I really was impressed you let them have a few moments to compose themselves at the start and during the ceremony, that truly had the personal touch. I get asked many a time who I would recommend as a celebrant and I would love to put your name forward.”

“I have to send a big thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for that incredible ceremony. It would not have been then same day without you! I have had so many lovely comments from the guests about the ceremony in particular…”
“We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the wonderful ceremony you facilitated for us. It was perfect. … We received a lot of compliments about the service and how lovely it was. It really was a wonderful ceremony. It was just what we wanted – a ceremony that told our story (and not in a cheesy over romantic way). We really appreciated the thought you put into writing [it].”

“Thank you so much for sharing in our special day. Your ‘touch’ has been just right for us. You will always hold a special place in our hearts because YOU married us!”
“Thank you, the ceremony was absolutely perfect, we would not have changed a single word!”
