Meet Celebrant Maree

As part of creating your fabulous wedding ceremony I like to find out some things about you, so it’s only fair that you know a little about me!

I’m a Melbourne based wedding celebrant and live super close to the Yarra Valley. I love meeting people and discussing their lives, beliefs and ideas about getting married.

I’m passionate about the creative collaborative process we embark on to create a unique and personal ceremony just for you.

Do you have in mind an “outside the box” idea for your wedding ceremony? I’ll encourage you and offer suggestions about content and logistics. I believe all wedding ceremonies can be meaningful, sincere, warm and inclusive.

My passion is meeting people, writing and listening to couple’s unique stories – a perfect mix for a wedding celebrant like myself!

Hazel and I would like to thank you for your amazing help to make the ceremony most memorable. Everything was great and both our families thought you were the perfect celebrant, kept our audience engaged, and the perfect timing of Hazel’s father’s ‘I do’ which he has said many times that thanks to your help he was able to understand when to say it.
Jeremy and Hazel


Qualified. Fun. Creative. Inclusive.

I’ve successfully completed the highest qualification you can attain as a marriage celebrant in Australia.

In 2004, I graduated with high distinctions with a Graduate Diploma in Arts (Civil Ceremonies) from Monash University.

It was during this time that I immersed myself in all things ceremony, ritual and history.

My wedding celebration experience is broad ranging. I love working with couples from different cultures, heritages, backgrounds, and circumstances. Every couple is different, and there is no “normal” wedding or family dynamics.

My role as your wedding celebrant is to ensure your wedding ceremony sets the tone for the rest of your day. It’s all about getting the right balance of fun and serious stuff when it matters. I’d love to help you craft a wedding ceremony that reflects you and your partner’s love and personality.


The first question I’ll ask you is…

“What’s important to you in your wedding ceremony?”
