Celebrant of the Year Finalist - consecutive years, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 considered as one of Melbourne's most trustworthy and dependable celebrants

Your wedding is a special experience you share with friends and family; an occasion you cherish and talk about for years to come.

A special occasion requires a relaxed approach and personalized planning, whether the ceremony is small and intimate or casual and contemporary. You can look forward to your special day with the calm knowledge that all will go as planned.

I like to meet my couple for an initial consultation with ‘no obligation to continue’, and no cost incurred,in order for you to see whether I am the ‘someone’ who will design and perform your ceremony.

Together with your ideas and my experience your ceremony will be individually crafted, creating a personalized and memorable wedding day.

Mid week weddings are unique and very special .......

Have you considered a midweek wedding ? Some venues offer discounts for during the week .... you are not competing for busy dates for cars, cakes or flowers for delivery or set up.

What about a luncheon wedding ....... they are fabulous ! the afternoon is then filled with being with your guests and making the most of the time with them before going out in the evening for ....who knows what ...... all meet up again at a pub, a pizza place ...a karaoke bar !!!!

A breakfast wedding is very unique ..... for a smaller more intimate ceremony ...... and then the day is yours to plan out in whatever way you wish !!! One of my most memorable weddings was at 8am in the morning in the city - picture this ..... the sun was just low in the sky over a glass sheet of water in the bay, the trams were just starting so the 'sounds' of Melbourne were waking up..... the birds were still singing their trills before the busy morning began...and everyone arrived elegantly dressed for a breakfast feast ...sitting at freshly placed, white tablecloths as the sun glinted in every piece of cutlery neatly laid out !!!! Call me ........ I can inspire your imagination ...... and it won't cost you as much ...! Simple  !!!!

Wendy played an important part in making our special day special, and we're very grateful to her. First of all, she's a lovely person with an immensely pleasant voice. If you know what you want from your ceremony, she will accomodate you. If you have less of an idea, like we did, she will take you gently but firmly by the hand and guide you through the process of crafting a ceremony that suits you. She obviously enjoys both the drafting process and the weddings themselves. The meetings were lovely, the rehearsal calmed our nerves, everything went well on the day. We heard no end of positive things about the ceremony from our guests - the ceremony as well as Wendy's delivery of it were spot on. We particularly enjoyed Wendy's suggestion, which was to reveal the answers to personal questions about ourselves in the ceremony itself!

We are so pleased we met Wendy and that she was available for our Poet's Lane Reception wedding. She was the fifth celebrant that we met and we realised after meeting her that she was the celebrant we wanted to create our wedding ceremony. Wendy is very professional, approachable, calm, funny and took the time to get to know us and to craft our wedding story. We had lots of compliments from family and friends about the style and heartfeltness of the wedding ceremony and even my parents said that we couldn't have picked anyone better for our wedding. Wendy was very organised, experienced and her style of personalising our ceremony really made our day. She is very reassuring, warm, communicative and genuinely cares about you. Our wedding day was the most unforgettable day of our lives thanks to Wendy. Thank you Wendy for everything!

Sara and Dwi ....... what can I say that I didn't say on your wedding day !!!!! From the first day we met, right up to the rehearsal - I thoroughly enjoyed the whole journey ...you are such a thoughtful, positive and embraceable couple.... I have no doubt that you will aspire to every thing you put your minds to. It was a real pleasure to be selected as your celebrant and I thank you for your kind words. Happiness always. warmly, Wendy x

We had seen Wendy at another wedding previously, and were so impressed by her manner that we decided to meet with her. She was the only celebrant we needed to meet. Wendy was such a wonderful celebrant, both in the lead up to the wedding and on the big day. She was so on top of the process that we felt we could leave everything in her hands. She made so many great recommendations and gave us so many tips, all of which were helpful and demonstrated her experience. On the day she was such a warm, reassuring presence, and really set the perfect tone for our wedding. She's also super gay friendly - as a gay couple, we were nervous about choosing someone who would celebrate with us, and Wendy is definitely the right choice for same sex weddings. We couldn't have asked for anyone better.

Chad and Josh ...... what a day !!!! I will never forget meeting you initially and hoping that I was going to be the celebrant you chose to deliver your most important ceremony.....so I was DELIGHTED when you called me. Throughout the whole process, I found you both so charming and open to ideas which makes my job more pleasurable. I will always remember your very broad smiles as I announced you 'Partners for Life' ...and most of all the cheers from your lovely guests...the atmosphere was one of love, warmth and total support and you could see it in their faces. Thank you again. Much love, and happiness always . Warmly, Wendy

Wendy was an incredible celebrant, and we couldn't have been happier to have her with us on our wedding day. From day 1 she made us both feel so comfortable and the whole process run so smoothly. One of my favourite memories was when Wendy came to briefly speak to me before the ceremony and we both shared a big hug (and nearly a tear or two!) All the guests said to me after the ceremony how personalised the ceremony was to exactly mine and my husband's personalities. I would highly recommend Wendy as a celebrant.

Wendy McRae  

Oh Gemma...... to see you just before you walked in tyo stand by Leigh's side was a moment I will never forget ....your smile just said it all ..... and both of you radiated warmth and happiness !! It was SUCH a lovely time ....... thank you for your kind words. With love, Warmly, Wendy

She was able to personalise the whole ceremony just to the two of us,. and made us feel incredible comfortable. We just felt really comfortable confident with everything she did on the day!

Wendy McRae  

Thank you for your lovely words...... I feel each couple is different and so everyone needs their own special ceremony including their own moments. I was delighted to deliver this to you. ! Warmly, Wendy

Very professional service. Very organised, provided us with a contract, and a binder with many options for our service to choose from. On the day was present enough without stealing the spotlight too much, and the service was wonderful. Would definitely recommend.

Wendy was fantastic, she was very easy to deal with from the moment we met her and throughout the whole process. The ceremony was really personal for us, and had a good balance between being personal and having modern touches.

What a lovely wedding day we had thanks to Wendy McRae. We wanted a low key yet intimate celebration and Wendy gave this to us. Right from our first meeting with Wendy we found her to be very calming and professional and furnished us with just the right amount of information and choices of vows that suited our 15 year relationship very well. Plus she made all the legal side effortless. Thank you Wendy.

Wendy McRae  

Jane and Jamie...... what an absolutely perfect day !!! ..in EVERY way ...... thank you for choosing me ...... I really enjoyed the journey with you both and wish you health and happiness always. Warmly, Wendy

We were really happy to share our day with Wendy. She was completely professional and conducted the ceremony with poise and warmth. With so much to organise in the lead up to the wedding, Wendy made it really easy for the paperwork to be completed and to draft the ceremony. Thank you Wendy!
