We loved Cherie from the moment we met her! We didn’t need to meet with anyone else. Cherie is lovely and very professional. Everyone from the wedding commented on how great she was and that our ceremony was so personalised. She takes the times to get to know her couples. She makes bespoke ceremonies to suit all couples, styles & personalities.

Cherie helped make our day perfect for us. We highly recommended her to anyone looking to make their day extra special.

Dione & Chris 💒

Cherie offered her services when we needed someone at short notice. She was generous with her time, and so compassionate and understanding of our needs. She was warm, kind and easy to work with. She helped us minimise the stress of organising a wedding, and was always responsive.

We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant – Cherie did a brilliant job and we are sure others will love working with her as much as we did. Thanks Cherie!

Sam & Anna 💐

To Cherie @marriagecelebrantmelbourne we thank you for going above & beyond for us on our Wedding Day. Cherie gave her time to play two major roles for us on our big day. She was our celebrant by day & our MC by night.

Cherie is one of a kind & so professional at what she does, not only on the day but also in the lead up to the occasion & even post wedding as well. We cannot thank you enough but thank you, thank you, thank you! ????

Brenton & Paige ❤️
