Introduction

www.withinme.com.au

Whatever walk of life your from and however you wish to declare your love for each other, I am here to work with you, to organise and conduct your ceremony in a way that expresses your love and tells your story in the best possible way, whatever that may be.

I believe we are all individuals and every wedding should be as distinct and diverse as the couple being married, so the possibilities are endless!

Your ceremony is about you, I will be there to support and guide you every step of the way. I am organised, appreciate attention to detail and have a natural flair for bringing warmth and genuine care to all situations meeting your individual needs.

I look forward to hearing your story and working with you to create a ceremony that honours you as a couple, reflects your unique style, relates to your lifestyle and beliefs and shares your love story.

Big Love and Hugs,

Mel

Testimonials

“You were beyond our wildest dreams Mel, thank you so much for all the time, warmth and energy you put into our special day. The ceremony was the most important part of our day and you truly delivered. Thank you. “
“Mel, you were so stylish and looked comfortable also which is an important part.”
“Everyone commented on how incredible you were Mel. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place and that has a lot to do with the personable attention you brought to it.”

“Mel from Within Me Celebrant Services was everything you could wish for in a celebrant. Personal, professional and down to earth with an innate spirituality that calms you on such a significant milestone day. 

Luke & I couldn’t imagine our special day without her. She brought laughter, tears and joy to the ceremony and prior to the wedding was nothing short of helpful, informative and proactive. 

Thank you Mel for everything you have done for us. Thank you surely isn’t enough but we are so appreciative to have shared that moment with you and for making us Husband & Wife.

Ness and Luke Byron Bay

“Mel you were so wonderful from start to finish, we were very lucky to have you! George and I could not have have been more fortunate to have found you to marry us. Your kindness, warmth and love will always remain with us.”

Paula and George South Stradbroke Island

We were lucky enough to have Mel as our Celebrant for our wedding in October 2017.
Mel is a warm, open hearted lady who listened to our wishes and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed throughout the lead up and during the ceremony.
We highly recommend Mel as a Celebrant 🌺

Selwyn and Trin Purga Hall, Purga

We were so blessed to have Mel marry us. She is a close friend of my husbands, which made it all the more special but even with that aside she went above and beyond to make sure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. There were so many little details she added to personalise it just for us, was always available to us and super professional as well as kind and easy going. I could not recommend her enough. Such a lovely lady inside and out. Vendors really do help making your wedding day perfect. Between Mel, our amazing photographer Casey Jane Malko, the makeup genius Rhylee Passfeild and the very talented Carolyn from Hyde roses we couldn’t have asked for a better team! Can’t believe it’s been almost a year!

Sooty and Cara Cedar Creek Lodges

Mel is an absolute legend of a celebrant.
We had the pleasure of her marrying myself and my husband at Couran Cove South Straddie. To tell you it was a perfect day is an understatement.
Mel knows how to make herself fit into your family as if you’ve know her all your life.
Happy, positive, bubbly and knows how to have a laugh...that’s all you want in a celebrant. ✨
I could not recommend this woman enough!

Nick and Sam Couran Cove Island Resort

“We couldn’t have picked a more perfect Celebrant to gently guide our wedding day. Mel made the whole wedding planning process easy and enjoyable. She helped us craft a ceremony that was intimate and meaningful, yet somehow still full of laughs.  Our family and friends all commented on Mel’s ability to direct the proceedings whilst allowing my husband and I to speak directly to one another in the special moments. Mel has a bright, youthful energy combined with a soft knowing wisdom and we feel really lucky to have had her as part of such an important event. We would highly recommend Mel to anyone looking for a genuine, and capable Celebrant that will tailor their day to them as individuals. Thanks again Mel, we had the best day ever!”

Murray and Hannah Hidden Valley

We were married by Mel in November 2018 and I cannot recommend this wonderful lady enough!
From our first meeting she was just fabulous, very professional and assisted us throughout this process with the tricky paperwork stuff too. Then on the big day Mel was amazing.
Thank you so much xx

Glen and Amy Court Cove Island Resort

Mel spent time getting to know Chris and I really well and we aren’t the type of people who don’t really express in front of people our love but she managed to capture the essence of our relationship so well. Mel’s beautiful calm energy was definitely what we needed on the day, and she made our family feel so welcome.
Mel made our day so special, the ceremony was beautiful and she customised our service to absolute perfection, if we could have our day again we would pick Mel to be our celebrant every time. All of our guests commented on how amazing the ceremony was and I believe it was down to Mels expertise and beautiful energy.
We can not thank you enough Mel, you are truly amazing.

Chris and Iona Braeside Chapel, Merrimac

The ceremony was the best part of our wedding and Mel played a huge role in creating that special moment for us.
She is so passionate and loves being a celebrant and that is clear in the effort she puts in prior to and on the day.
She really took the time to get to know us, understand what type of ceremony we wanted and made the whole process fun.
What made it all so special was the personalised stories woven throughout. All thoughtfully scripted together to create a genuine and unique ceremony full of laughs and touching heartfelt moments which was the relaxed style we were after.

The ceremony notes provided afterwards is such a special keepsake too. 
We've received so many comments saying it was such a lovely ceremony and we have you to thank for that.

Alex and Kate Osteria, Casuarina

As soon as we met you Mel, we knew that you were the person who would marry us. We felt as though we had known you for ages. A bit qlichè, but you seemed to be  a very "comfy fit" for us particularly since we were marrying on our 20 year anniversary. Your relaxed nature and genuine warmth helped us refocus and design a ceremony that was perfect for us which was so important.

Everytime we look back on our special day we feel so grateful for the way everything turned out beautifully even with our bubs in tow and how amazing it was to have you calmly guide us through it. 

Thank you so much Mel. 

Much love and warm wishes to you

Adam and Renee Canyon Lookout , Springbrook
