Are you ready to kick your wedding day off with a bit of British/Caribbean flair ?!

Yes, my British accent is genuine... a subtle mix of Jamie Oliver Nigella Lawson!

Registered in 2015, I’m a kick ass Melbourne based marriage celebrant, who creates awesome ceremonies.

In 2011 I packed a pretty large suitcase, left the ‘bright lights’ of London and set sail for Melbourne…Well, I came on a plane but ‘set sail’ sounds a bit fancier than ‘board a flight’ innit!

I came for work but stayed for love. I met my partner - a true vegemite eating Aussie in the same year. In 2016 we became ‘wing it’ parents to a hilariously cheeky toddler.

Born in West London to Jamaican parents - doing things with style and humour is in my bones. I love to celebrate... laugh, party and be happy! With a Batchelor of Arts in 'Performance Art' {Acting} tucked under my belt and a history both on and off the stage- you can count on me to ensure your ceremony goes off with a bang.... without upstaging the Bride!  

I became a celebrant after attending a friend's wedding. As I sat there watching the ceremony, I couldn't help but feel that something wasn't right. Yes, the ceremony was legal and well conducted but I knew my friend, and this wasn't right for her. She is boisterous, confident and has a belly laugh that would shake a continent. The ceremony just didn't reflect her or her husband's personalities. 

It was at that moment that I made the commitment to become a celebrant. I am all of the things you need if you are looking for a 'jolly good' ceremony to kick your day off with a bang! It's important to me that your ceremony reflects you as a couple and everything we do up to the big day will reflect this. 

I offer a professional, enthusiastic and modern approach to the retelling of your personal love story. On your big day, I conduct a ceremony that will knock the socks off your guests....unless it's summer and they're wearing sandals!

I am based in Essendon, Melbourne but I'm permitted and willing to perform ceremonies throughout Victoria and Australia.

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Travel Fees?

Travel within Melbourne, Geelong and surrounds is included in my fee. For further distances an additional fee may be charged. 

Other fees?

Additional fees will apply for props or items specifically procured for your ceremony. These items will be discussed prior to finalising purchase/hire.

How long will the ceremony be?

You chosen content will dictate the length of your ceremony. However, as a guide, the average length of my ceremonies have been as follows: Wedding- 25 to 45 minutes, Commitment/Renewal- 20 to 30 minutes, Legals only - 10 to 15 minutes.

Paperwork?

The following paperwork must be completed for your wedding to be legal:

  • Form 13 – Notice of Intended Marriage.
This form must be lodged with your chosen celebrant a minimum of one month prior to your ceremony. if you are unable to meet with me to complete the form within this time, you can have the form witnessed by one of the persons listed on the form and then submit it to me via mail. 
  • Form 14 – Declaration of no legal impediment
Completed prior to your wedding - as close to the day as possible. Usually at our final meeting/rehearsal.
  • Form 15 – Couples Certificate
This is the certificate we sign on your Wedding day. {Decorative}
  • Form 16 – Marriage Certificate
This is the certificate is signed by me, the couple and their 2 witnesses on the wedding day. I send this form along with form 13 and 14 to 'Births, Deaths and Marriages' to register your marriage. This paperwork is sent within 14 days of your ceremony. After this time, you can apply to your BDM for your official marriage certificate. (I will provide you the details of your state's BDM  and how to do this in my 'That's a wrap' email.)
Other ceremonies: There is no legal paperwork to be completed for all other ceremonies. However, for each ceremony I do offer a non-legal certificate to sign (optional). You can either select one from the templates offered, purchase your own or we can work on something together. 

 

Further, more thorough terms and conditions will be provided once a booking has been secured.

Zee is extremely friendly, generous, warm and is all about creating a ceremony just for the couple. When we saw Zee's photo on Easy Weddings we were immediately inspired to meet her, and she ended up meeting us for a drink to discuss her approach and hear about our wishes. What she put together was nothing short of inspiring - all our friends and family commented on what a wonderful ceremony she put together, her warm personality and confidence, her storytelling ability and her spirit. We also loved her style - from the Welcome Aboard package welcoming us into her process, the ceremony keepsake booklets she prepared, her generosity in consulting with us on building our day, and her modern and spunky dress sense, she was the right candidate and hit it out of the park.

From the first meeting ever...we were like yep! She’s the one... Zee was funny, warm and always so helpful. When our wedding got postponed Zee went above and beyond to legally marry us last Monday! It was the best day ever and would not have been possible if Zee didn’t care about her clients as much as she does! We consider her part of the family now 😍

Zee was an awesome celebrant. We gelled from the first meeting and felt that we were in very good hands. Zee helped us put together a ceremony that was very 'us' and wrote a beautiful story to kick off proceedings based on our answers to her questionnaire. She delivered the ceremony flawlessly on the day and had everyone laughing and tearing up. She was also super helpful with the paperwork and legal formalities. Thanks for everything Zee!

If you want a memorable wedding then look no further. Zee is a committed celebrant who goes above and beyond to ensure your day is special, unique and memorable. All our guests loved her and kept asking about her afterwards. The way she told our story using the information we shared was so touching, accurate and beautiful. She is a real storyteller. Also - her calmness and focus was good to have to keep everyone level headed. Separately her catering was so special with the Jamaican Beef Patties she provided and her management and coordination of the hosting of our guests. Multi-talented, special and completely worth it!

Zee was absolutely awesome. From the get go we felt so comfortable with her, chatting about weddings over a glass of wine. She made herself available and was always happy to answer any questions we had. We didn't need a rehearsal or too many meet ups but she was always obliging and always put us at ease. She had the 'script' to us ahead of time in case we wanted any changes (which we didn't since she wrote such a wonderful ceremony for us. On the day, she was brilliant! So welcoming and funny, and we got so many comments from friends and family about how great she was. Can't recommend her enough if you want a sincerely fun ceremony. Thanks so much Zee!!!
