Thank you for visiting my site and congratulations on your upcoming event!

Allow me to tell you about myself and the services I provide. I am a fully qualified, registered Celebrant with the Australian Government. I am enthusiastic about creating personal events. These include wedding ceremonies, renewal of vows, commitment ceremonies or baby naming day ceremonies.


I take pride in delivering a ceremony that is professional, relaxed, friendly and memorable to all involved.

About me

Hi, my name is Merinda, but I prefer Min #marriedbymin!


I have been cursed with a name many have struggled to pronounce or spell (thanks, Mum and Dad).


I honestly have the best job in the world! Both my husband Luke and I work in the industry, so if you need a DJ, HOLLA!!


Luke and I have been together for 12 years and married for 2-  he really wanted to make sure I was the one! You can’t rush these things, you know.


We decided to surprise all our guests at our BABY-Q and got hitched in front of our closest friends and family. Now, we have our beautiful boys, Tommy and Owen!


One of the best parts of being a Celebrant is meeting new people and hearing their stories! So if you are after a light-hearted, fun and relaxed ceremony, get in contact. We can meet for a coffee/wine or even a snitty.


Hope to hear from you soon!

Merinda is totally amazing. Will highly recommend to everyone we know. Thank you for making the process easy, stress-free and especially for the laughs. So many guests commented on our ceremony and we just loved having you as the person to make the love official.

Thank you Merinda for your wonderful role in the most special part of our day – the ceremony. Your organisation, quick response time, flexible suggestions, and warmth during the planning stages were much appreciated. On the big day, you were professional, reliable and supportive. We felt confident with you by our sides, and there were plenty of smiles, laughs and love.

Merinda was amazing and helped make our day everything we wanted and more! She made the time leading up to the wedding to get to know us and the way she wrote our ceremony showed us that she had been listening! Merinda did such a great job helping me to calm my nerves (and also the groom!) Our family and friends all commented on how lovely she was. Having Merinda as our celebrant was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. It couldn’t have been more perfect!
