I take pride in delivering a ceremony that is professional, relaxed, friendly and ultimately memorable to all involved.

Thank you for visiting and congratulations on your upcoming event.

I would like to tell you a bit about myself and the service I provide.. I am a fully qualified and registered Celebrant with the Australian Government, and I am enthusiastic about creating personal events, whether that be a wedding, baby naming day or a commitment ceremony. 

I take pride in delivering a ceremony that is professional, relaxed, friendly and ultimately memorable to all involved. 

I am primarily based in the Illawarra but more than able to go beyond that area for a modest and mutually agreeable fee. 

As all couples and events are different, I feel it is important that you feel, I am the right person for your special day. I meet with all my clients before the event at absolutely no cost to yourself. 

I am very confident I can create a day for you that is relaxed, stress-free and most importantly, about the people involved.

Merinda is totally amazing. Will highly recommend to everyone we know. Thank you for making the process easy, stress-free and especially for the laughs. So many guests commented on our ceremony and we just loved having you as the person to make the love official.

From the initial meeting we knew we had to have Merinda marry us on our big day. We wanted someone who was calm, genuine and fun who could tell our story and merinda was all that and more! Not only did she do an amazing job on the day, she is super organised, has backups of everything and makes sure everything runs smoothly leading up to the day. She even helped calm the nerves moments before I walked down the aisle! We couldn’t recommend her enough and all our engaged couples complimented on our perfect our ceremony and all want her for their upcoming weddings too! It was an absolute pleasure to have her part of our wedding and she made everything so simple!

From the moment we spoke with Merinda on the phone we thought she was just so lovely and we knew we wanted her as our celebrant! Merinda made the entire daunting process of planning a ceremony so easy! She sent through everything we needed from the get go and answered every question. The ceremony was so beautiful and intimate, she felt like she was part of our family! We truly could not recommend Merinda enough, she is perfect!!

Wow! What do I say about Merinda!?! For our big day I wanted a very relaxed, modern, love filled and personal ceremony, and that is exactly what we got! She made us so relaxed even when we may have been sweating bullets because everything was so well planned and organised. We had so many people ask us whether Merinda was a friend or family member of ours, because she knew so much about us, and was so expressive in the way she spoke about us. I could not recommend Merinda enough! Thank you so much Merinda for making our day perfect!

Merinda (Min) was exceptional! She spent many hours with us and getting to know us prior to our wedding day and delivered the most perfect ceremony. We also had her as our MC at our reception. A perfect end to a perfect day!

Just WOW! Merinda was amazing. She really personalised the whole ceremony for us and told our story in a way that we wanted. It wasn't a cookie cutter style, she custom made everything to fit us. She spent time with us and got to know us. She brought a whole different element to the day.

This woman is amazing. She literally had to hold our hands through the entire process and did it without once faltering. Merinda made the effort to get to know us, so that she could customise our wedding to suit us, it was personal and simple – just as we wanted. Completed all our paperwork and was happy to guide us through what was required by us. Our guests loved her sincerity & her little comedic parts we agreed on. She works well under pressure (considering we had a stray dog join our ceremony lol) and is a beautiful person. Very highly recommended.

Merinda is the best celebrant ever! Merinda crafts her ceremonies fun, concise and entertaining. All of our guests commented on how fantastic our ceremony was. Merinda is aware of her positioning throughout the ceremony, and nothing is overlooked. 100% recommended if you want a personalised, fun and crowd pleasing ceremony.

What an awesome experience!! Working with Merinda was the best!! She tailored our ceremony to the finest detail, and was so great with double checking that everything was organised for our big day. We would HIGHLY recommend her, professional, great service, and lovely personality to boot.
