"It's lovely being in Melissa's company because she makes you feel as though you've known her all your life! She was professional from the start, and well-organised - sending us notes and reminders in the lead-up to meetings with her. We were in great hands and were grateful to have her guide us through the process. On our big day, Melissa did a fantastic job as our celebrant. She was energetic, engaging and her delivery was heartfelt. Thank you for being a part of it, Melissa!"
Clare & Tim
"Melissa is one of the most kind and generous people who absolutely loves love. She's sincere, genuine and an absolute professional. She made both Tim and I feel so at ease through the process - whether it was by offering references and ideas for how to personalise our ceremony, through to being a warm, fun and calming presence on the day. She's so authentic and a delight to be around. Couldn't recommend her highly enough!"
Karly & Jude
"We had been on the lookout for our civil marriage celebrant for a while before we met Melissa. A minute in to our conversation, we knew we’d found the one for us…. she was not too hot, not too cold; she was just right !
Melissa was professional yet approachable and welcoming. We loved that Melissa embraced our desire to personalise our ceremony. We can honestly say that our wedding ceremony completely exceeded our expectations. It goes down as our favourite part of the day and of our life together; we’re so very happy that Melissa was the one to officiate it for us!"
Bianca & Manjiv
"Melissa came to us highly recommended and we understood why very quickly! What a beautiful celebrant! Melissa worked closely with us to ensure the ceremony was very personal, including our 11 month old daughter and the many family and friends we wanted to be part of the ceremony. She didn't just send us a selection of run of the mill readings or vows, but worked with us to create a ceremony that reflected us as a couple and as a family. We loved Melissa so much, we asked her to be MC at our reception! Melissa was fantastic, running a tight ship but also maintaining plenty of laughs! We highly recommend Melissa - not only is she highly organised and experienced, she also brings plenty of smiles and a wicked sense of humour. We had a ball planning our wedding with Mine Forever!"
Shaina & Ben
"When planning my wedding there was no doubt in my mind that Melissa would be the one to marry us. Already one of my dearest friends, Melissa's flexible approach meant that we could have the casual, beachside ceremony that we wanted. Melissa guided Ben and I through all the official stuff in the lead up, helped us personalise our ceremony and ensured that we started our special day with lots of laughs, and a few happy tears! Thank you Mel!"
Isabella & Stuart
"We were instantly drawn to Melissa's warmth and happiness. She became much more than just our celebrant, she became our friend. She helped us create a very personal ceremony and spent the time to learn about our love story. Her attention to detail was exceptional and she cared for us from the first meeting - even after the ceremony had finished! She helped me get around in my dress and even took the time to place our marriage certificate and my wedding charms in a safe place. She's fun to be around, someone I feel like I've known forever. She's all about the love and played a huge part in our dream wedding. Thank you Melissa."
Kylie & Jonathan
"When Jonathan and I first met Melissa for our initial consultation it was like having coffee with an old friend. We instantly felt comfortable in Melissa's warm presence, she made the experience from finalising important details such as wedding licences to choosing readings a smooth process which can seem quite daunting and stressful.
From the rehearsal to the wedding day, the experience was a everything we could have hoped for. Melissa's professionalism and caring nature ensured our ceremony was executed to perfection. Melissa made sure that on our wedding day we were focused on each other, the love we had for each other and the marriage we were about to embark on.
Melissa, we cannot thank you enough for assisting us in having our dream wedding become a reality!"
Kate & James
"James and I wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such an amazing job as our celebrant on our wedding day. We received so many compliments from our friends and family of how wonderful you were. You really took the time to get to know us during the process, and it showed on the wedding day as you beautifully captured us as a couple."
Kathryn & Carlo
"Thank you for all the time and effort that you put into planning our wedding ceremony. All your efforts certainly made our wedding day perfect! Your calm, caring nature and innovative ideas helped us to enjoy the planning phases of our wedding. We loved the candle lighting ceremony as it meant that we were able to include our families in our special day.”
