Wedding Celebrant

Author of Your Beautiful Love Story

Hey there and welcome! 

Chances are you may have stopped by because you’re recently engaged and planning your special celebration – congratulations!

If you are looking for a fun, young and vibrant celebrant, then you’re in the right place!

I’m Nikki, a fun-loving and bubbly morning person and a lover of all things outdoors. I am also a Commonwealth authorised marriage celebrant. I create fun, meaningful and personalised ceremonies across Melbourne and beyond.    

It is my absolute privilege to be involved in the wedding industry and to work as a celebrant. I love love, meeting new people and events. Weddings are just the best – the feeling is electric, the guests are in high spirits and there is love in the air! 

Becoming a celebrant felt like a very natural decision and since completing my Certificate IV in Celebrancy (now a 12-month course!), I haven’t looked back since. 

In my other life, I work as a lawyer and professional mediator, so my days require me to be super organised, multi-task like a queen and negotiate and resolve big and complex cases. Whilst I love what I do, weddings are a whole lot more fun. 

As your celebrant, I will be with you every step of the way. I will ensure that the ceremony planning process is easy, stress-free and fun and of course, I will be there to take care of the legal requirements. 

So if I sound like your type of celebrant, then please get in touch and let’s chat over coffee (or wine!). It would be my privilege to be involved in your big day!

What My Couples Say

Having Nikki perform our wedding ceremony was the best decision we made! Working with Nikki through the planning and lead up to the wedding was an absolute delight. Nikki made us feel comfortable from the very get go. She got to know us really well in a short space of time and because of this, was able to deliver a beautiful ceremony that captured us so well. We can't thank her enough and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful celebrant.
Joanna & Michael
We loved having Nikki be a part of our day! She was extremely personable from the get-go, extremely organised, and very helpful at all points in the process. She made us feel super comfortable that we were prepared for the day and it was clear how much she loves what she does. She nailed the ceremony script and we have had so many people comment on how great she was! Thank you so much for everything Nikki!

My Services​

Weddings

This is my most popular service. I offer two types of wedding packages, the complete package (with all the 'bells & whistles') and the 'legals only' package'

Renewal of Vows

This is similar to a wedding but without the legal paperwork. A ceremony will still be written, family and friends can be involved and it can be as big or as intimate as you wish.

Baby Naming Ceremony

This is a non-religious ceremony, which gives new parents the opportunity to gather amongst family & friends to welcome the arrival and naming of their gorgeous baby.

Wedding Packages

The Complete Package

(the full bells & whistles wedding ceremony)

The ‘Legals Only’ Package

(the short, sweet and no fuss approach)

Frequently Asked Questions

A celebrant is someone who performs and officiates ceremonies and important life events. They can be involved in a wide range of ceremonies and events, including weddings (most common), baby naming ceremonies, elopements, renewal of vows and funerals. A celebrant is authorised by the Attorney General’s office and is there to assist in the process of creating a ceremony that is perfect for you. They also ensure that all the legal paperwork is taken care of.

Finding the right celebrant is a big decision, after all their job is super important and so you absolutely want the right fit. Before you make the decision, do your research and ask for recommendation from friends / family. Once you have a celebrant in mind, check out their website / social media accounts and get to know them, over a phone call or even better a coffee catch-up. At the end of the day, it’s a very personal decision and ultimately you should choose someone you gel with and who fits easily with you and your partner.

Every celebrant will charge differently and there is no set price across the industry. Celebrants charge differently based on many factors, including location, personal preference and most commonly also experience. My advice is don’t choose a celebrant purely based on cost, as you may do yourself a disservice. If you choose the right celebrant for you (even if they may be slightly more expensive than the next) it will ultimately be worth every extra cent! 

In order to fill out the legal paperwork required, you will need a passport or your original birth certificate, together with your driver’s license. Also, if you have been married before, I will also need to see your divorce papers or the death certificate of your previous spouse. For full details of all of the info for couples about to get married, I recommend visiting the Attorney General Department website.

I provide plenty of support in the lead up to your ceremony.

Firstly, I do a catch-up coffee or wine with you and your partner. This will give us both an opportunity to get to know each other and will allow me to better know your story, and specifically, what you want your ceremony to look like. I will talk you through what paperwork is required and give you both a questionnaire to fill out after the meeting (this helps to give me lots of fun and interesting information to include in your ceremony).

From that point forward, I offer unlimited contact via skype, email or phone, for any questions or advice. Then we have a pre-wedding rehearsal (if required) a few days before the wedding. And then before you know it, your wedding day has arrived!

Yes, absolutely! I have always been a strong supporter of marriage equality. Love is love and all love should be celebrated equally!
