20 Wedding Celebrants in Melbourne to Fall in Love With

You’ve found your life match. Now it’s time to make a date with some of the best wedding celebrants in Melbourne.

So, you’ve found the person who makes you laugh, steals chips from your plate and knows your favourite movie. Now it’s time to find a celebrant in Melbourne that gets you as a couple. This kiiinda feels like dating all over again, so the process CAN be scary … but hang in there. I’m going to give you a shortcut to the best Melbourne wedding celebrants, so you can fast forward to the bit where you fall in love.

First up, here are some reasons why it's super important to hire a pro-wedding celebrant:

The legalities, of course…

I mean, it would be a bit awks if the actual legal parts weren’t completed or filed properly. 

They’ll calm your nerves better than any wine.

If pouring your heart out in front of a crowd isn’t your idea of a good time, a celebrant will be there to lighten the moment or give you a reassuring pat on the back. The best ones will always be armed with tissues if the waterworks come out to play.

They know aaaallll the tricks.

In the lead-up to *that* aisle moment, a celebrant will be totally in control. Is the music playing? Has everyone turned off their phones? Do they know what happens next? The list is endless, but the right celebrant will always be on top of it all. Plus, they’ll *definitely* know NOT to stand in the middle of the couple during their first kiss so the photographer can snap the winning shot. 

*Drumroll, please!*
In no particular order - here is the list!
