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 was exactly what we were looking for on our special day. From the day we met her over zoom, to then in person, we immediately felt comfortable and knew she would be perfect to help us tie the knot! The whole process can be daunting but Merinda made us feel at ease, with her organisation, open communication and attentiveness. She read our vows in advance to ensure they aligned and made sure all the paperwork necessary was complete in a timely manner to take away all the stress! The day came, and her warm smile and preparation made everything run so smoothly. Every single one of our wedding guests approached us and was extremely complimentary of her. We couldn't recommend Merinda enough, we only wish we could get married once more so we could do it all again! Thank you Min!

Merinda is an incredible celebrant. She made the whole process ridiculously easy and we were genuinely blown away with the beautiful ceremony she put together. Our guests are still commenting on how perfect the ceremony was and we could not be happier. I highly recommend Min to anyone and everyone getting married!

Merinda did an amazing job with our ceremony. Her confidence made me feel like we were in good hands. She wrote such beautiful words and really captured us as a couple. Can’t recommend her enough.

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!
