Understand why Fiona is one of Melbourne’s best marriage celebrants….


“We don’t remember days, we remember moments”.

You met, fell in love, said “Yes” and are now planning to get married.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, I am an experienced, professional marriage celebrant creating special moments and fabulous wedding ceremonies since 2010.

But I am more than just a celebrant and I tend to do ceremonies a little less ordinary than perhaps you might have experienced!   For me, the wedding ceremony is about life, love and creating moments that will be remembered forever.  I want you and your guests to walk away having witnessed and been involved in one of the best days of your life and ready to celebrate the evening on a high.

Every wedding is different because every couple is different, and a relaxed and meaningful wedding ceremony doesn’t just happen.  It’s created.  I am not only there to ensure that you leave married, but to make the process is as easy as possible and that you feel completely at ease and you enjoy yourself in the process.



Behind every wedding is a unique couple.  A wedding looks different for every couple.   If you and your guests are able to walk away having laughed, cried and really enjoyed yourselves and are looking forward to the celebrations, then I know I have done my job.


Having a big wedding is not for everyone. If you are looking for a meaningful way to commit to one another without all the fuss, maybe eloping with just a few of your closest family and friends is the perfect way for you to start your married life.
