We are beyond grateful to have had Mel as our Celebrant for our wedding. She is positive and genuine in her approach and is a huge reason we look back so fondly on the day! Mel guided us every step of the way and made the ceremony a breeze. She gave us wonderful guidance in the lead-up to the wedding with our vows and the running of the ceremony. We highly recommend Mel as a celebrant! Thankyou Mel for going above and beyond!

Melissa was the wonderful celebrant who married us in the Blue Mountains. She was an absolute joy to work with when creating our ceremony and we feel so privileged to have had her be a part of our special day. From the start, Melissa was professional, warm, kind and welcoming.
