Civil Marriage Celebrant



“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”... Mignon McLaughlin

I love this quote by Mignon McLaughlin, it perfectly sums up my idea of marriage. Your wedding ceremony is the start of this journey. Your ceremony kicks off your wedding day celebrations, it’s all about you but can include as many loved ones as you like. It can be modern, traditional, casual, relaxed, funny or a combination of these elements to make it completely your own. My wedding ceremonies are very special occasions due to their attention to detail, warmth and inclusiveness. I take great pride in the part I play making your day happy and as stress free as possible. You will be guaranteed the finest wedding ceremony, graciously packaged and delivered.

Testimonials
"Michelle was amazing! From start to finish. We were so worried about engaging a celebrant that we wouldn't feel comfortable with, but when we met Michelle, she put our minds and nerves at ease. With Michelles guidance and advice throughout the whole process, it seemed effortless (which is such a relief when trying to organise a wedding). She was able to incorporate our needs and tailor the ceremony to our personalities. The ceremony was magical! Her professionalism and manner was flawless. A few of our guests even commented that they would like to also use her for their wedding. We honestly were blessed to find Michelle and would recommend her as a celebrant to any couple." Bonnie & Daniel (Darwin, NT)

“Shelly married Doug and I at The Cut Golf Course on Saturday 01 Nov 2014; it was a perfect day.
Shelly's professionalism and happy personality made Doug and I feel very relaxed about the day and the future. Shelly spoke to us about commitment, family, and how to survive crisis points in our marriage. The laborious task of paperwork and dealing with sensitive issues were handled appropriately and professionally. Shelly always went that little bit extra like dropping off a thumb drive with music so we could listen and think about our choice of music for the day. We also had a rehearsal, which I would highly recommend. I hope your day will be as perfect as ours..”  Mrs Carolyn Macintyre Scott (Dawesville, WA)
