Amanda & Nathan
“The day was perfect Melissa. Everything we could have ever wished for. It was honestly one of the best days of my life and I love that you were a special part of it.”
Josie & Ted
My name is Melissa and I am a fully qualified and nationally registered marriage celebrant. Every couple has a beautiful love story and I would love to design you a personalised wedding that you will never forget. Your wedding is one of the most treasured memories of your life.
With a personal love of the mountains, I completely understand why you have chosen this special place to ‘tie the knot’. I specialise in relaxed and modern weddings and I will create a ceremony that is a true reflection of your relationship and love for each other. I promise to be friendly, available for all your questions, organised and reliable as well as creative.
Weddings & Celebrations
Did you know you only need 5 people to make your wedding legal?
The couple, your celebrant and two witnesses over the age of 18.
One months’ notice is all that is required to plan a wedding in Australia as well as the required identity documents (Birth Certificate, Passport, Photo Identification).
My local knowledge in the mountains is available to tap into. I can arrange beautiful private places for your intimate wedding such as beside a waterfall or a babbling creek, in a paddock with a gorgeous view. There are also remote locations that are accessed by skiing, snow shoeing, boat or chairlift. If you are looking for a one-off small wedding venue, we have contacts at many local properties in the high country.
Face to face meetings to discuss your special day and to complete the required legal paperwork.
Unlimited contact via email and phone until you are happy with the bespoke ceremony tailored to your requirements.
Optional rehearsal (can be done via phone).
Official Marriage Certificate (arrives by registered mail within 2 weeks of your wedding).
We are happy to recommend larger reception venues, florists, photographers, caterers, musicians, cake makers, hair and beauty.
We can also arrange bespoke accommodation for you or your guests.
