A little about me…

My name is Michelle, and as an Authorised Marriage Celebrant, I am privileged to help couples create a fabulous wedding ceremony that not only celebrates their marriage but also the love they have for one another. I am a fun and friendly, modern Melbourne wedding celebrant, passionate about creating engaging wedding ceremonies that are all about you!

With a background in retail and airline customer service, I have a genuine love of helping people which makes meeting and working together with my couples effortless. Showing them the many possibilities and choices they may not be aware of when creating and celebrating their story gives me a real buzz!

When I am not researching and writing ceremonies, I enjoy good food and even better wine, travelling anywhere by plane, catching up with friends and love family time with my husband and our three beautiful children.

The marriage ceremony is an integral part of any wedding – without it, it would just be one big party! The words spoken and the vibe that your celebrant creates are so important in setting the tone for the rest of your day, they deserve an awesome ceremony in which to be heard. My approach is relaxed yet professional and I enjoy having fun with couples and I consider it a real privilege to be given the opportunity to guide them during the most important commitment of their life! I have a genuine warmth and energy for meeting and talking to people and love hearing my couples’ stories of how they came to be and ultimately decided to get married.

In order to write your very own personalised ceremony I obviously need information about YOU and that requires me setting a little bit of homework – and it’s fun I promise! I ask questions that allow me to find out a little bit about you and your partner, how you met, what you enjoy doing together and what marriage means to you both just to give you an idea. Basically I’m after ‘your story’, the one that is unique to you and your relationship and the best way to ensure its individual is by being creative – it’s all about giving it that personal touch! A highly personalised ceremony that is fun and engaging, that celebrates love and friendship, and is shared with family and friends, creates an everlasting memory for you and your guests to enjoy.

From the simplicity and style of a small intimate wedding ceremony, either at a winery, beach, garden or even your backyard, to maybe something a little more elaborate, I have loads of ideas to help you create a wedding ceremony that is fun and totally about the two of you!

Planning your ‘big day’ doesn’t have to be stressful and it’s certainly not supposed to cause you any grief. Organizing your wedding should be fun and exciting – so never lose sight of what the day is all about. The most important thing is the union of you as a couple, to be shared and celebrated with those nearest and dearest to you. Stay true to yourselves and have fun designing the wedding ceremony that is right for you. Your day – your decision! Now that’s exciting!

Funerals

A funeral service conducted with competence, care and compassion, pays tribute to a loved one by honoring and remembering them and reflects on the life they have lived. It is a safe place for family and friends to gather, to express their sadness and grieve their loss. Presenting a funeral ceremony that is heartfelt and sincere can make all the difference to the lives of those family and friends who are left behind.

My role as a funeral celebrant is dedicated to caring for, listening to and working alongside families to help them plan a service that is respectful and farewells their loved one just as they wish. Capturing the essence and qualities of the person through the eulogy and shared personal stories is an important time where family and friends can laugh, cry and remember, where the life that once lived is honored and acknowledged in a dignified way. I know how important it is to have the interpersonal skills required to relate to and engage with grieving people and to meet their needs with empathy and sensitivity. A well planned, authentic and professionally delivered service can assist family and friends by providing direction and some comfort through what is a very difficult time. If you are in need of a Funeral Celebrant, I would be humbled to assist and guide you at this deeply sad time.
