Getting your paperwork sorted

  • Assisting with lodging the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM - this is the bit you need to do at least one month before the big day)

  • Any other paperwork you may need help sourcing or sorting

Planning your ceremony

  • Helping you tailor a ceremony that is just for you!

  • It could be something formal and a little more traditional, or something with lots of laughs and fun

  • I’m here to listen to what you want (and don’t want!), give you ideas and examples, and work with you to get what you want from your day!

  • I’ll help with Vow ideas and writing

  • I’ve got lots of other Vendors in my contacts if you are stuck for hair, makeup, pics, or a band (Check out the ‘Other Stuff and Things’ tab!)

  • I’m here to take any of the uncertainty of what to do and where to start so we can all Melebrate Good Times!

Delivering the goods on the day

  • I’ve got a quality PA so everyone will hear you say your ‘I do’s’

  • I’ll make sure your ceremony runs smoothly and everyone is cool, calm and collected!

  • I’ll deliver a great ceremony that is all about your love!

  • We can have a rehearsal before the day if needed (see ‘pricing’ for details)

  • AND obviously getting you married! (duh!)

Lodging the paperwork

  • Exactly that!!!!

  • Registering the marriage with Birth Deaths and Marriages 

  • Ordering your Marriage Certificate and having it sent to you. 

Almost ready to Melebrate?
Here’s a little about me…..

My background is in music teaching and music performance, so I know how to pump up and wrangle a crowd and get things going and keep them on track!

 

I’m relatively new to Melebrating Good Times. I got in to it because it looked like a heap of fun (which it is!), and so I could work with all kinds of people and still be creative in a way that is different to my day job! (I can also talk the leg off a chair, which is great for getting your guests nice and relaxed on the big day!)

 

I’m organised and flexible. I know not everything runs to plan and I’m really good at making it look like it does! 

I’ve got a quick wit and love working the crowd to feel relaxed, have a laugh and a good time.

 

I also know not everyone loves being the centre of attention, so I am here to put you in the spotlight in a way that takes some of the stress out of being in the spotlight!

 

On the flipside, if a low-key more relaxed ceremony is your aim we can work together to make it something special just for you!

 

Either way I know it is about making your day feel special and memorable.

 

So what now?

Hit me up!!! Send me an email, shoot through an enquiry, slide in my dm’s, hit me up on messenger, send a carrier pigeon, have your people call my people!

I’ll give you a call and we can chat logistics and catch up and see if we can Melebrate together!

What you need to know...

Getting married is pretty simple…. No it really is, that is why I am here.

There are a few things we take care of in the lead up to the big (or little) day!

 

The Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM)

This is a legal document that gets filled in to say you are who you are (and a few other things but you get the drift). I check it off with some ID and hold on to it. It needs to be completed no less than a month before the ceremony.

 

Before the wedding we sign one other doc (they like to make sure you are serious!). Then, at the time of the marriage you both sign the certificates along with two witnesses to say we all heard you say the magic words! (You get to keep a pretty certificate!)

 

After the ceremony I lodge it all and send it off for you, and in a few weeks your get your official certificate in the post. That way you can use it for the other grown up stuff and things that need to happen! (like name change, and boring stuff like bills!)

Other stuff...

I’m up for anything you need to Melebrate, be it naming ceremony for a little one or re-naming ceremony if you are on the path to re-invention. I can even help you celebrate the life of a loved one or pet, and plan your own end of life celebration, we are here to Melebrate Good Times!

As mentioned I could talk the leg off a chair so GET IN TOUCH and we can sort it out, I can even MC your next event.

And things...

Here are some great vendors I know and have worked with if you are stuck for other stuff and things.

I’m not taking any kickbacks, they are just ace at what they do, so I thought I would share the love!

Stalk my pages and get in touch

Thanks for submitting!

We absolutely LOVED having Mel marry us at our Love Party!

She brought so much joy and humour to our ceremony, our guests adored her and all asked if she could either marry them or be the celebrant at their funeral (haha)...

Mel is super adaptable, and absolute legend of a human, the best energy to be around and loves love!

We would highly recommend her to everyone who wants a tailor made ceremony, especially if you are not so traditional like us ;)
