Hello, my name is Dee and my pronouns are She/Her, Melbourne Marriage Celebrant
I'm a make of dresses. A storyteller. A lover of Prosecco.
I consider myself to be a fun, modern, relaxed and inclusive Marriage Celebrant. I love a good love story and I can't wait to hear yours.
I’d long felt the pull towards becoming a celebrant. However, being a gay woman, I felt locked out of weddings and marriage. Then, marriage equality finally happened in Australia!
Whatever size or style wedding you are planning, your ceremony sets the tone for your celebration. It’s also a chance to stand still, be with the one you love, and share your story and commitment with your family and friends. Be it an intimate soiree, a raucous backyard shindig, or a lavish celebration, my approach to your ceremony is the same. After many conversations with you, usually over a beer or Prosecco, I ask loads of questions to find out what’s important to you, what it is about each other that you love the most, and create a ceremony that reflects just that.
I come from an event planner background, which I believe helps me to ensure that your ceremony runs perfectly.
I am super organised and will ensure that all your questions are answered. I'll also make sure that all the legal paperwork is completed so that you are actually married.
Melbourne's northern suburbs are where I call home, with my lovely English partner and two rather large dogs. When not hanging out with my couples in local bars, creating ceremonies and helping loved up couples get married, I love exploring local cafes, handmade markets, vintage stores, restaurants and craft beer establishments.
My partner, dogs and I are very partial to a road trip exploring Victoria's country towns, good food and good wine and markets. If you are planning a rural wedding I would love to bring the whole family along. I would love to help you tell your story and create a ceremony that reflects you and your love story.
Contact me today for a no obligation chat to see if I am the right fit for your ceremony.
I do love hanging out on Instagram! I'd love for you to follow me #customcelebrations_by_dee
