Relax and celebrate your wedding day with Margaret! Bright, friendly and welcoming Margaret is an experienced celebrant who listens to your ideas to create your perfect unique ceremony! Brides Choice Awards finalist in 2019 and has been awarded a 5 star Certificate of Excellence from Easy Weddings.

Your wedding ceremony is the most important part of your special day so you must feel relaxed and comfortable with your choice of celebrant. I am there to share the experience with you and to guide you in creating the day and ceremony of your dreams.

I'm a full time celebrant so am available to perform your ceremony at any time that you wish. I am also triple vaccinated as I realise it's so important for you and your guests to be in safe environment.

I aim to:

* respect your wishes and listen to your ideas and requests

* guide you through all the complexities of your ceremony, including all the legalities
* deliver my ceremonies in a relaxed, calm and sensitive manner
* perform only one ceremony a day, so my time is exclusively yours on your day
* ensure I have competitive pricing which is all inclusive – there are no hidden extras down the track.

Let's work together to create the perfect ceremony you will happily remember after all the excitement of the wedding day has passed.

PLEASE NOTE:  After much soul searching, I intend to resign from celebrancy at the end of June 2024 after nearly 18 years of wonderful memories. I will be unable to accept any queries for ceremonies after the end of June 2024 but would be delighted to create your special day up until my resignation.


Becoming a celebrant over 17 years ago was the best decision I have ever made. I just love working with my couples to provide lasting memories of such a special day in their lives and enjoy the moment with them. I'm reliable, flexible, relaxed and approachable so happily welcome any ideas and suggestions to make your ceremony very personal. I've been married to a wonderful man for 35 years. We enjoy travelling and good food and cooking and spend our free time in various volunteer roles.

Yes! I will organise a high-quality PA system so your guests can hear your ceremony. You are welcome to play your ceremony music through this also if you wish.

Absoultely. We will organise a rehearsal just prior to your ceremony, preferably at the ceremony venue if you wish.

What a perfect expereience we had with Margaret. Her tenderness, warmth, and patience brought a special set of ingredients to make our ceremony everything we'd hoped for. She went out of her way to make preparations for the big day, being very generous with her time and feedback. She is the lovliest person to lead any couple through their vows, because she is perceptive and made sure we stayed on track during the formal proceedings. She places the bride and groom first and it is clear that she adores her job. Her voice is beautiful and clear. Her husband Peter was on the ball with the audio system for our aisle song, pre ceremony tracks and couples dance. We couldn't have had such a perfect day without them both. Thank you from our hearts. <3 <3 <3

Professional and knowledgeable. Always there to help with any details, questions or troubleshooting. Marg delivered a beautiful ceremony with our own personal touch.

I was so pleased to share this wonderful day with you both.

June 2014

Margaret and her husband were amazing in every way . we met Margaret at a wedding expo and immediately loved her, she is so friendly and loving that she felt like family instantly. Margret was so organized in the preparation and lead up to our wedding she did us a step by step guide and helped us plan our day brilliantly. We loved it how we did a wedding rehearsal with Margaret the day before our wedding and how her husband took some extra photos on the day for us. We truly can not recommend Margaret enough to future brides and grooms as she was perfect in every way. Margaret will be forever in our hearts for helping us with our journey of becoming Husband and Wife . Thank you Adam and Hannah Thomas xxx

Can we write our own ring element into our wedding ceremony?

Wondering if the ring part of our ceremony can be personalised or if it has to be what everyone else has?

Margaret McLeod

Definitely possible. You are welcome to write your own wording anywhere in the ceremony except for the legal parts ad used by your celebrant.

Can I request my celebrant to wear a certain colour or outfit?

I've seen some awful clashing outfits and celebrants in white etc... is it rude to ask them to wear a particular colour or style? I don't know if I'm taking it way too far haha. But I want everything to look good! It is my wedding day, after all :)

Margaret McLeod

Dear Keira,

It's always a good idea to let your celebrant know your colour theme for your ceremony. I always ask my couples and try to blend in indiscreetly with that. I wouldn't have a problem being asked to wear a particular colour but maybe style might be pushing it a bit as everyone knows what suits them best. A professional celebrant should always be appropriately dressed, never never wear white and blend in. Hoping this helps. Margaret McLeod, Marriage Celebrant

Do I have my future father in law walk me down the aisle?

Unsure what category to put this under. I don't speak to my family at all and have always said I want to walk down the aisle on my own. I've had pressure from my future mother in law and other extended members of my fiances family that I should have him. Comments like "surely you would have xxxx walk you". He's a lovely man but there's a lot I disagree with his alcoholism and priorities and he has also made comments that he thinks I'll ask him. What can I do? Advice? Please ??

Margaret McLeod

Hi Shelby, you are free to choose anyone to walk you down the aisle. But if you feel uncomfortable with this perhaps you could think about maybe walking half way down on your own and then your groom walking up to meet you and you walk in together. This would symbolise your life from being single to then becoming husband and wife and the new beginnings ahead of you. It's your day so don't bow to pressure. Weddings today don't have to be traditional so be creative. Good luck. I'd like to hear what you decided eventually as many brides face the same problem as you are now. Best wishes. Margaret McLeod
