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 and absolute confidence and the knowledge that all will go as planned.

For consecutive years 2013–2017 nominated as a top finalist for 'celebrant of the year', I'm considered one of Melbourne's most trustworthy and dependable celebrants.

WEDDINGS don't have to BE EXPENSIVE

"How much does a celebrant cost?"

We all want value for money and I advise couples not to choose a celebrant solely on costs. Have you thought about a Weekday Wedding? Many venues are less expensive and offer deals. With 'Save the Date' invites, you can inform your guests well in advance to keep 'Wednesday' free to share your special day – I offer discounts for a midweek package. So feel free to get in touch and we can explore your celebrant budget.

I'm sure I can help.

 
 

"The emotional range Wendy brought to our wedding was beyond words; she had people close to tears then in stitches laughing."

SURPRISE weddings

More and more couples are turning engagements into weddings. I've been involved in crafting the surprise element of a beautiful ceremony at a bbq, a dinner, a birthday, a gathering and even stood hiding in an ensuite for 30 mins waiting for the 'signal'.

Our wedding was a surprise to everyone and Wendy played the perfect part. She was punctual, efficient, organised and happy to be part of our family for an hour. Her professional yet personal touch made our small ceremony a day to remember
— Susie and Bernie
Wendy was so warm and loving from day one of meeting her. We instantly knew she was the one to have on board our big day. We threw a surprise wedding and she was such a help with some fantastic ideas. I would highly recommend.

WENDY SAVED OUR WEDDING! With 45 mins til my wife arrived, my groomsmen split his pants from crotch to ankle! Panic crept in, whilst my mate roamed around the gardens greeting guests in his boxers. Wendy came to our rescue, who fixed the pants and my wife was none the wiser!
— Andrew
We got so many comments from our friends and family about the wonderful ceremony that Wendy conducted. It was warm and sincere with the perfect amount of light-hearted humour so as to entertain and engage our guests while remaining respectful to gravitas of the occasion. We highly recommend Wendy.
— joanne & scott
Wendy was amazing. We had seen her at two weddings prior and knew we had to have her when we got married! Her service has some lovely touches that will make your wedding stand out from others. Wendy was very helpful in organising our ceremony in the lead up and in our rehearsal and we would recommend her to everyone!
— Lisa & Richard
Wendy was absolutely magnificent from the moment we met her. She went above and beyond with everything and made every step of the way easy for us. On our special day, she delivered the most personalised and memorable ceremony. Wendy, thank you for making our wedding day so magical and memorable!
