Your love story is unique, your wedding ceremony should be too!


Marrying your best friend is the most important thing on the day. Melissa believes your wedding should show-off your love identity truthfully and this should be reflected in your wedding ceremony. No two ceremonies are the same and Melissa brings her experience and passion for ceremony to your love story in an artful and unique way, ensuring that your wedding ceremony is truly yours.

Melissa regularly presides over marriage ceremonies in Sydney for people of different nationalities and faiths and is eager to ensure the wedding ceremony, while meeting Australian legal obligations, retains its’ cultural and ritualistic significance.

All love is welcome


Melissa believes all love should be celebrated. Until marriage equality is afforded to all people in Australia, Melissa will happily conduct commitment ceremonies for same-sex couples and offer a free legal ceremony to those couples once the laws are passed.
