~ Gretchen & Alex, September 2012
Melanie worked with us to create a ceremony that was reflective of us, our humour and chemistry as a couple…Our friends and family laughed their way through the ceremony and many later commented that it was very ‘us’. Perfect ceremony!

- Claire and Daniel - May 2013
" We were so happy with the service we received from you and the ceremony you presented. We have no negative feedback at all. You presented well, you handled the windy conditions and you kept the ceremony intimate. You helped me personalize our ceremony and I loved it right down to the pinky promise! Our experience with you was so refreshing compared to other vendors we dealt with during our planning stages, you were upfront about what you offered and you delivered above expectations!"
Liz and Sam - May 2013
"We found Melanie to be very friendly and endearing, as well as very organised and knowledgable about legal requirements. She prepared a lovely ceremony for us and was very encouraging of our input. The ceremony was perfect and all our guests commented on what a wonderful Celebrant she is. Thank you Melanie for making our day so special and unique to us."
Emma and Daniel - June 2013
"We feel so lucky to have had you as our Celebrant Melanie. You were kind, thoughtful and fun whilst ensuring the ceremony was professional and well organised. You helped us create a personal ceremony that we'll cherish forever, and on the day you joined in to the spirit of our ceremony just like one of our friends. In years to come when we think of our marriage ceremony, we will remember you fondly and hope to see you again one day in beautiful Palm Cove!... You have been a pleasure to deal with since the start of our planning. We loved the ceremony you wrote for us and you were so helpful throughout. Our guests commented on what a lovely person you were and how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We were extremely happy with the ceremony and your suggestions of a practice run really helped to ensure it ran smoothly on the day. Your colours complemented our colour scheme... The information provided was very thorough and you guided us through the completion of the legal docs - giving us gentle yet necessary reminders to complete paperwork in the run up to the wedding...Documents provided - beautiful presentaiton of our vow cards and ceremony wording printed out - much appreciated....Love Emma and Dan "
Jason and Dee - June 2013
All I can say is WOW... What a perfect wedding :) Thank you so so so so so much for your Beautiful service, your amazing, you really are.

You really made our day more perfect. xxxxx
Bec and Cam - June 2013
Excellent Melanie, we couldn’t not have asked for more. Would you recommend my Celebrant services to a family member, friend, colleague? Why/Why not? Yes, without a doubt.... Very audible and excellent feedback from guests who commented how personal our service was.
Louise and Adrian - June 2013
We were over the moon with how it went! Loved speaking with you about everything. We love your personality."
Kim and Luke - June 2013
"Thanks Melanie for a beautiful, personalized wedding ceremony. Your friendly, professional service ensured that all flowed smoothly. The ceremony exceeded expectations and all went perfectly to plan – coordinating the music with all the people was no small feat. The ceremony was incredibly special to Luke and I and we thank you for working so closely with us to make it such a special evening."
Kay and Jeremy - June 2013
Thank you for a very kind and loving approach to our Wedding. The ceremony was beautiful. It flowed very well and you looked lovely. I would not hesitiate (to recommend you). I need more friends to get married!
Rebecca and Trevor - June 2013
Thank you so much Melanie our ceremony was absolutely perfect. The service you provided from our very first phone call up to our wedding day was excellent, you were so easy to deal with and made sure we were across everything and on the right track. The ceremony you wrote for us was beautiful and we loved the way you were able to include all the personal touches we wanted, which made it all the more special for us and our family members involved. We could not have been happier with how it all went and we would highly recommend you to everyone.You were so easy to deal with. We were really pressed for time in the lead up to the wedding and I am so grateful you kept us on track with getting our ceremony sorted out. The personal touches you incorporated into our ceremony were beautiful and it flowed so well. Everyone told us how beautiful the ceremony was, especially our family member who were involved, thank you so much for helping us include everyone, it meant so much to us.
Liesel and Mitchell - July 2013
Melanie - We cannot thank you enough for your help and services at our wedding. You made understanding the process involved with a wedding ceremony easy and made each step enjoyable. You never hesitated to answer any questions we had – and were always so easy to get in contact with. Our ceremony was very personal and I feel it represented us perfectly as a couple. We will forever be appreciative and remember our wedding ceremony – looking back now, we would not change a thing! I have already had a few friends who are getting married ask who did our ceremony as they enjoyed it so much. I have no hesitation in referring and recommending you – In fact I have even written about you and your business in an entry to a bridal magazine – so fingers crossed we get into it!
Narinda and David, August 2013
For us, our wedding day was perfect. You followed up on documentation which can be overlooked so easily when organising a wedding and were always available to talk. The ceremony was lovely - just the way we wanted it. You listened to what we wnated and adjusted the ceremony to reflect that. Thank you.
Sam and Michael, August 2013
The ceremony was a beautiful story about Michael and I which captured the guest’s attention. Very professional. The ceremony was worded perfectly and you were very informative, professional and organized with the legal information provided to us. You created a ceremony that was a story about Michael and I, something different and not your “ordinary” ceremony. It was personal with a little bit of humor and the perfect length which captured the guests attention. You were also very professional and organised.
Jamie and Luke, August 2013
My now husband and I were more than impressed with Melanie form the first day we met her. Melanie is organised, knowledgeable and dedicated to creating a marriage ceremony especially for you. Melanie is a genuine and lovely person that after talking with her makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. Don't just get any marriage celebrant, you need to choose the right one who cares about making your wedding day special. We are so happy Melanie Serafin was our celebrant. Thank you for being a part of our day. It is a day we will always remember.
Marisa and Naithan, August 2013, Lake TInaroo
Melanie made us both feel very comfortable and excited about our wedding ceremony from our very first meeting. Melanie took the time to get to know both Naithan and I as individuals and a couple which was used to tailor our unique and special ceremony. Melanie’s presentation skills were flawless. Thanks once again Melanie."
Kim and Clinton, August 2013
"I couldn't imagine anyone else I would want to marry Clinton and I. Everyone said how great you were and how lovely and different the ceremony was. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Kim J - finally! :) "
Cassandra and Matt on Savannah's Baby Naming Day, September 2013
"Melanie Serafin was extremely professional during the lead up and throughout the entire ceremony. Her friendly attitude and bubbly personality put all the guests at ease and allowed everybody to enjoy a lovely service. I would definitely recommend her to anybody who wants someone who understands how important the special day is to you and truly enjoys giving you exactly what you want for it to be a wonderful success... It was conducted both professionally and in a casual and relaxed manner that suited the ceremony and helped everybody relax and enjoy the day – you handled the crying like a true professional!"
Sam and Brett, September, 213
It was truly everything we could have wished for. You were very comforting for both of us when so nervous and the whole ceremony was just beautiful. Not too long either, just PERFECT! You made the entire process so easy and so real to both of us. It was exactly Brett and I and we just loved our entire day! Many of our guests commented on how lovely a ceremony it was also. I already have a friend of mine who is getting married in 2014 and I’m part of their bridal party, I’ve suggested they go with you!
Tina and Mike (From Germany)
The ceremony was great, especially that we were lead so well through an easy going and relaxed ceremony as we wished for. Excellent!
Jade and Ben, September 2013
"I can honestly say that we can't think of any comments that may help you to improve your skills and business. You were (and are) truly amazing. We received so many comments from our guests on how well the ceremony was delivered, the best they have ever been to as it was personalised, funny and professional. Everything was excellent and we will definitely, without question, be recommending your services. We couldn't be happier."
Sam and Dan, September 2013
Melanie provides a professional and caring service from start to finish. She listens to what you want and creates a Ceremony to suit your personalities which sets the scene for your wedding day.
We would not have changed a thing, thank you Melanie. We highly recommend you to anyone planning their special day.
Stacey and Keith, September 2013
Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU! Everything on our wedding day was amazing. Thank you for all your help leading up to the day and on the the day!! You were absolutely perfect and did an amazing job! Loved every minute! I will definitely be recommending you!
Lindsey and Phil, September 2013, Kewarra Beach Resort
We were very happy with the service and level of organisation, the ceremony was very well written and spoken... The ceremony outline was very well written and matched us as a couple perfectly. Feedback from many at the wedding indicated that it was a very good ceremony. Excellent.
Jacinta and Liam, October, 2013
We first met Melanie Serafin at a friend's Naming Day and from that experience had always kept her in the back of our minds - in case we were ever to tie the knot in the future. When we did finally decide to marry, contacting Melanie was an easy decision. From our first meeting with Melanie we noticed that she was professional, organised, helpful, creative and thoughtful. She also sent us regular email reminders over the year which prompted us to keep on track with our wedding planning. Melanie also assisted with all the legal paperwork which was one less task for us to worry about. On the day of our ceremony Melanie made us feel calm and at ease, particularly in front of a crowd. We would happily recommend Melanie's services to anyone - a great celebrant is really noticeable on your special day.
Jess and Jamie, October, 2013
Melanie thank you for being an integral component in our day. From our first meeting we 'had' to have you as our celebrant, even changing our date, as you were unavailable. You were professional, so approachable and created a ceremony that reflected 'us' as a couple. I could not recommend you highly enough, you were simply WONDERFUL!!!
Danielle and Mick, October, 2013
You are young, enthusiastic, truly believe in romance and love, listened to our wishes and delivered them, respectful, efficient and prompt. I also liked the fun and personalized emails from you... I loved the mixture of romance and humor, it helped me relax. ... thankfully you knew exactly what needed to be done. We had no idea and it was nice to know that this was securely covered by you. If Michael and I are lucky enough to have a baby I would like you to oversee a welcoming ceremony. My friend Lisa who has been to hundreds of weddings, said you were by far the best celebrant she has even seen. Melanie our wedding was perfect and you definitely contributed to making it so wonderful, thank you again. You will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Kylie and Jason, October 2013
Jason and I would like to thank you for your professionalism in creating and conducting our magical wedding ceremony. We wouldn't have wished for it to be any other way! ... It was everything we wanted and more. I doubt any other celebrant could have done it better... your services as a celebrant were exceptional and very 'human' and professional at the same time. Not overdone or underdone; just perfect.
Alex and Anthony, November 2013
Melanie was professional, friendly and very easy to work with. It was clear right from the start that she was there to help us create the ceremony we wanted as opposed to making us fit into a readymade ceremony template. At the end of the day we wanted our celebrant to be someone we felt we connected with… Melanie’s warm open nature made this very easy. We walked away from our very first, very brief meeting with her at the wedding expo knowing that she was the celebrant for us. It was when it came to the ceremony, storm clouds brewing over head that Melanie’s calm professionalism really shone through. She calmly helped me make split second decisions about where and how to hold the ceremony under the threat of heavy rain. We had the ceremony as planned on the beach and Melanie’s delivery of the ceremony was perfect. My decision to hold the ceremony in the sprinkle rain meant that Melanie could not use her PA equipment however every single guest at the ceremony heard every word. We could not have asked for a better celebrant or a better ceremony. Thank you so much Melanie.
Harmony and Eli, December 2013
Melanie's bubbly personality and friendly nature makes her an absolute pleasure to deal with. It is very evident that she is passionate about her work and her professionalism and attention to detail is flawless. Living out of region, she went above and beyond with her correspondence to ensure our ceremony went beautifully and was incredibly flexible with our meeting arrangements. My husband and I felt completely comfortable with her even though I had only met with her once and he met her on the day. She was sincere and heartfelt throughout the ceremony and everyone present was truly moved. We could not have chosen a better celebrant, absolutely perfect.
Felicity and David, December 2013
Amazing! We could not have asked for anything better. Exactly what we wanted. Very professsional and organised. You were just wonderful. Everything we asked for, you did and I am jsut so happy that our day was made our day. All thanks to you.
Jenny and David, December 2013
Our day was wonderful, and a big part of that was having Melanie as our celebrant. She was well prepared, friendly and accommodating. When one of our guests was held up due to missing a flight, she handled the delay with grace, and mingled easily with our family and friends during the wait. Her poise and confidence guided us through the ceremony and helped to make this a memorable day for us and our guests. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone else looking for a sensitive, friendly and professional celebrant. The ceremony was lovely, and matched our expectations exactly. In fact, it was better than we expected.
Daniela and Marco (from Italy), December 2013
The ceremony was in perfect accord with our desires. You were perfectly dressed and groomed for our occasion. If we have to be honest it’s hard for us to give you some advices on how to improve your services because we found them excellent, without any error or deficiency. We really appreciated the whole service that you offered. Thanks for giving us this unforgettable experience.
Charles and Sandra, January 2014
Thankyou.. You were amazing. Only good things to say. I loved the personal story in our ceremony.
Sara and Anthony, January 2014
Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding wonderful! I do want to let you know that my rather traditional Nanna said that it is the most beautiful civil ceremony she has attended and she thought you did a marvellous job! Many thanks!
Linda and Jhai, February 2014
Thank you Melanie... Excellent!
Clarissa and Jeff, March 2014
Melanie was very friendly & professional, our ceremony was perfect, the service and help she provided was great, such a lovely lady. Many of our guests told us how beautiful and relaxed the ceremony was and they really enjoyed it. We would also like to thank you for allowing our daughters to be apart of our special day, we would definitely be recommending you to everyone we know. Extremely happy :)
Mel and Phil, April 2014
I just wanted to thank you so much for making our ceremony perfect we couldn't have asked for anything more. You really helped us to feel calm and relaxed. Everyone commented on how amazing you were and how beautiful the ceremony was. Would absolutely recommend you to everyone.
Joey and Aaron, May 2014
Melanie came highly spoken of from a friend. We wanted someone who had a fresh youthful approach for our wedding ceremony who would be confidently spoken outdoors, light hearted ceremony with a comforting smiling face to share our joy in marriage. Someone who could tailor to our individual needs & provide guidance & professionalism in a unique way to make our wedding different. We are glad we found Melanie as she could offer all of this without even asking. Thank-you for everything you truly are suited to this industry. May you keep on spreading the love & marrige for many more to come! Joey & Aaron.
Karen and Tom, May 2014, Sea Temple
Thanks for all your help and our ceremony was great! Our photographer said you were the nicest cdelebrant he has seen. family members enjoyed the ceremony.
Claire and Jesse, May 2014 at the Hilton Chapel, Cairns
Thank you so much Melanie, you were so organized throughout the whole ceremony planning and execution, which is exactly what we needed amongst the chaos of planning a wedding from interstate! The resources you sent us including sample ceremonies and quotes were invaluable in helping us to create the perfect ceremony for our wedding that reflected our wants and needs. We appreciated how you liaised with our other vendors, such as the wedding coordinator and guitarist, to ensure our ceremony ran smoothly. Having you as our celebrant meant we didn’t feel stressed or worried about our ceremony, we were able to be ‘in the moment’ and enjoy being married in front of our closest family and friends.
Peta and Steve, May 2014, Lake Tinaroo
Thank you so so much for being everything we wanted in a celebrant you were fabulous !
Mr and Mrs F! October 2013
Melanie, your presence as our celebrant added so much love and laughter to our special day. You added to our wonderful memories of our wedding, we thank you for that. Thank you for joining us as we began our new life together. All the best for 2014, no doubt another busy year writing beautiful vows and helping couples become Mr and Mrs.
(Love that - Mr and Mrs!!!)
Kate and Jay, May 2014, Palm Cove
We wanted it to be light and fun. We felt we clicked with you on our first meeting and all our correspondence after was smooth and uncomplicated. We also loved that you personalised our ceremony to suit our personalities. As mentioned above, we couldn’t have been happier with our ceremony and we received a lot of positive comments on how great you were. We would definitely recommend you to anyone we knew getting married in FNQ :)
Jo-Anne and Aaron, May 2014
Aaron and i wanted to thank you for everything you provided on our wedding day and for being a part of it as our celebrant. We wanted someone young and bubbly, supportive and catered well for the outdoors beach setting. You met our personalised needs and provided a friendly face to caox us through our vows. That definitely conforted us through the cermeony to make us feel relaxed and allowed us to take it all in admiring each other in our own little moment of complete happiness. Thank you!!!
Nicole and Michael, June 2014, Cairns
Absolutely perfect ceremony. It's excatly what we wished for. Melanie is a wonderful celebrant- From the first meeting, through all the emails and to the actual day! Everything was perfectly organised and stress-free. This was particularly important to us given we were planning the wedding in Cairns from Brisbane. Thank you for everything - you are a gem!
Kylie and Sean, June 2014, Alamanda Chapel, Palm Cove
Mel, thank you so much for making our marriage ceremony all that we wanted it to be. I felt that you were more a part of our cermeony than simply our celebrant. Having connected with you only a week or so before (due to the circumstances...), we were ecstatic with everything you bought to our special day.... You were professional, friendly, suited our style and worked above and beyond... Thank you thank you thank you!
Mary and Rob, October 2014, Palm Cove Beach
Absolutely! Down to every detail. We felt although you bent over backwards to ensure that it was what we wanted. Nothing was silly or too much trouble and you never once made us feel bad for making a change... Very well dressed. Although it might sound superficial, the honest truth is that we picked you over the other referred celebrants based on looks. I had seen so many wedding pictures with celebrants that just looked out of place in the wedding pictures. You know, modern beach couple and a celebrant dressed in a 2 piece mauve suit! It is such a prominent spot right up front in between the bride and groom – we felt it was important to have someone who could recognize and adapt to blend in with our ceremony and day – which is why we chose you! In your pictures on your website, you were dressed nicely, suited to the FNQ environment and we were not disappointed at any time while meeting with you. Your outfit was perfect and you clearly took the time to do your hair and make up nicely (and wind appropriate) – which when standing next to someone who had just spent the last 3 hours doing hair and make-up was very much appreciated... Excellent
Sophie and Harry, Clifton Beach, October 2014
Very much in accordance with our wishes - you handled the delicate balance between funny/sentimental really well. Your dress and grooming were impeccable! We were very happy with all of this (the explanation of legal requirements) and thought you made everything very clear to us and we would certainly recommend you. Thank you for your thoughtful and professional approach and sense of humour... "Melanie is a fantastic celebrant and did a wonderful service for us. She listened to what we wanted and did brilliantly to juggle all our different requests. She's thoughtful, funny and very easy going and this came through in a brilliant ceremony. Thank you!"
Leanne and James, Trinty Beach Wedding, November 2014
Professional, warm, knnowledgeable and fun. Melanie, we're just so happy with everything you did to make our day so special. We wanted something a little less traditional and you absolutely nailed the brief! Thank you xxx
Skye, Michael and Nate, Trinity Beach Renewal of Vows, December 2014
Renewal of vows.. 10 years. Thanks Melanie Serafin You made it very special (from facebook page!)
Adrian and Olga, Palm Cove, December 2014
IT WAS BEYOUND OUR EXPECTATIONS. YOU WERE DRESSESD SIMPLE, ELEGANT AND CLASSY. EVERYTHING PRIOR THE CEREMONY WAS EXPLAINED PROPERLY AND IN DETAILS, THEREFORE WE UNDERSTOOD ALL THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS AND STEP BY STEP PROCEDURES EVEN AFTER THE CEREMONY...HIGHLY RECOMMEND, BECAUSE OF THE PROFESSIONALISM! EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!KEEP UP WITH THE SAME STYLE.YOU MADE OUR WEDDING DAY SPECIAL
Lena and Andrew, Alamanda Chapel, November 2014
After we had to cancel our first wedding we were worried this new wedding wouldn’t live up to our hopes. We couldn’t have been more wrong. Melanie was the perfect celebrant for our wedding and I can’t imagine having done it any other way. We wanted a ceremony that was solemn where it needed to be but had an element of fun. We and many of our guests laughed and cried throughout. Everyone who came to the wedding told us how wonderful the ceremony was and how it was a perfect mix of seriousness and playfulness. We loved it and wouldn’t change a thing. It was an unforgettable day and it wouldn’t have been the same without Melanie.
Marco and Giovanna from Italy, Palm Cove Beach, January 2015
The wedding, it really went far beyond our expectations, and we will keep in our hearts that beautiful day forever. And for this we really want to thank you once more: You're a perfect mix of friendliness, professionalism and passion that really inspired us.
Sara and Jye, Hobart Wedding, February 2015
It was exactly how we had envisaged. You Looked lovely Mel, and very professional. Very informative with all information. The checklist really helped.
Would you recommend my Celebrant services to a family member, friend, colleague? Why/Why not? I would recommend you each time (but it would depend on if you wanted to fly here). Ease, everything was easy stress-free with your service. It was only one of few that was so relaxed (and did not add to the stress of the day).
Niree and Ronald, Grand Chanellor, Palm Cove, April 2015
You were fantastic throughout the years helping plan and just so easy to talk with you made everyone feel confortable. And yay wan't wait (change her name!)
Vanessa and Trevor, Cruise Liner Terminal Breezeway, May 2015
It was wonderful to feel so relaxed! Everything you did made us feel at ease and you allowed us to incorporate our son and made our cermony very light-hearted. It was a wonderful day and you made everything so easy for us. Thank you for taking our last minute venue change in your stride!
Jodie and Grant, Peppers Palm Cove, May 2015
Grant: Melanie, it was our absolute pleasure to have you apart of our wedding many coments were made from ppl saying it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and were questioning how long our friend has been a celebrant lol. We said no we have only met you a few times, but due to the affection and kindness of the ceremony and how you delivered it all was for lack of a better work perfect. So thank you so much the hole day was awesome. Thank you again Melanie....
Jodie: We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did it was an absolutely beautiful day and we enjoyed every second of it. It was truly our pleasure to have you conduct our ceremony it really was perfect and your guidance throughout the whole process we will forever be thankful for and we could not have asked for anything better it was a magical day.
Mikaela and Jason, Peppers Palm Cove, May 2015
“Melanie was the most amazing and professional celecbrant. Trying to organise a wedding from another state is difficult but Melanie made everything so easy and stress free. She “got” us from our first meeting and tailored our ceremony to us to a tee! The ceremony was beautiful and I had comments from our guest saying how good she was and the really enjoyed the ceremony and what it in entailed. So thank you so much Melanie!"
Stacey and Jay, The Billabong, Kuranda, May 2015
Jay and I can't thank you enough for our amazing ceremony. WE were talking about it last night and both agreed that we couldn't say a bad thing about you or the cermeony. From our initial meeting to you pronouncing us husband and wife was perfect. We both felt so confortable with you and you have a very calming and friendly nature. I only wish I had of taken more time to thank you on the day!!! We will certainly be recommending you to anyone we hear of getting married!!! I feel like I can't say thank you enough!!! In fact a simple thank you doesn't cut it!!! You truly are amazing and we feel so blessed that you were part of our day xx
Lisa and Rob, ReNewall Newall Beach, May 2015
Melanie, you were simply brilliant from the moment Rob and I first contacted you – professional, organized, knowledgeable, personable, sincerely interested in our day and it was obvious from day one that you love what you do and you made us feel so very special. We honestly can’t thank you enough and we had so many guests come and comment to us on the day and weeks after the wedding about how beautiful and personalized the service was - everything was perfect and we wouldn’t change a thing! Thank you. Melanie, you were very informative on the legal aspects and Rob and I from day one had 100% confidence and reliance in the information you provided to us. At no point were either of us stressed or worried about the ceremony as you were so well organised and made it so easy to get the legal formalities done and all lodged by the due dates.The ceremony is such a special part of your wedding day and Melanie, you made it so personalised and special and had a very calming, but organised approach. Both Rob and I felt very comfortable talking and getting to know you. Your website reviews were amazing and we got to experience this first hand. We couldn’t have found a more perfect celebrant. Overall, you were simply brilliant and we thank you so very much for making our day so special and memorable.
Leesa and Phil, Peppers Palm Cove, May 2015
I got a good vibe from your page and then we started talking and I knew you were the right one for us. The ceremony was everything we wanted, it was such a perfect day and so special! All of your communication was excellent especially explaining the legal jargon. You looked fantastic and your dress colour looked great with Phil's shirt, he mentioned several times that he liked your dress. I have absolutely no improvements to recommend, you were wonderful and we're so happy with how our day turned out! I would recommend you to anyone getting married in Queensland :) :)
Sam and Scott, Holloways Beach, May 2015
Melanie, you are not only a lovely, genuine person, but such a wonderful celebrant. The way you spoke about us you would have thought you knew us for years! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day one to remember. xx
Carmel and Glen, Alamanda Chapel Palm Cove, June 2015
Thank you for a wonderful ceremony. The day was perfect and God was smiling down on me with the weather. All the guests commented on the soothing and beautiful words of the ceremony. Thank you for our lovely wedding certificates and for the fun little extras in the envelope. :)
Monica and Dan, Lake Barrine, June 2015
Everything from the ititial meeting to the ceremony was very professional. You listened to what we wanted. In terms of the ceremony and with the brief information we gave you about ourselves, you came up with a light humourous storyline about our beginnings. Your professionalism shows with your knowledge of the legal requirements. Thank you for making our wedding day a memorable day. I would most definitely recommend you to future husbands and wives to be!
Leora and Josh, Sugarworld Gardens, June 2015

Melanie was fantasic at taking our needs and wishes into consideration and amking the ceremony the way we wanted. Melanie looked so lovely and was perfectly 'themed' to us - we were impressed with how much she took into consideration and Melanie absolutely nailed it!

If you are looking for a vibrant, dedicated, supportive, and friendly marriage celebrant, then we highly recommend Melanie Serafin. From initial enquiry through to "I Do", Melanie was organised, professional and always ensured we were happy with the direction of our ceremony. She was magnificent with authoring and conducting the ceremony and adapted to our 'non-traditional' style with ease. We feel very grateful to have had someone so open, understanding and fun to guide us through the marriage experience. We would definitely use Melanie again.

The overall experience with Melanie was fantastic and we would be more than happy to recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much for your contribution on our special day. From the initial discussions right through to the ceremony at Palm Cove beach everything was perfect just as we had hoped.

Bec and Matt, Mt Uncle Distillery, January 2016
My wife and I were married at Mt Uncle Distillery on the Atherton Tablelands in early 2016. We had the absolute pelasure of having Melanie as our celebrant on our special day. We are both quite shy people however Melanie made us feel clam and relaxed throughout the entire process. The ceremony Melanie created was fun, lighthearted and intimate, tailored specifically for us. It was perfect and exactly what we wanted. Even the years, months and even weeks leading up to our wedding, Melanie was a great help with our planning at every stage. On a professional level, Melanie is reliable and punctual which was imperative for such a momentous occasion in our lives. Melanie we cannot thank you enough for being a part of our special day and making it the success that it was. You have helped us create the perfect day with a memory we will never forget. You have our highest praise and recommendation.
