Mel and Chris – 6 November 2015

Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on & never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, & impossible to live without. 

Love is realizing that every hour, every minute, & every second was worth it because you did it together.

Oh I LOVE marrying old friends. Mel and I went to high school together and it was great to touch base again and meet Chris, and then marry them on a hot Wellington day in beautiful Zealandia. I was also able to recommend some of my absolutely favourite Wellington wedding photographers – Meeko and Redge. Check out their blog post which has more beautiful photos and I concur absolutely that the universe conspired for Mel and Chris to meet.

Congrats you tough, strong, love birds. I loved it so thanks for letting me help you start your journey as husband and wife xx

Testimonial from Mel and Chris:

I have known Miranda since high school, and although we don’t see each other regularly, when I heard she was a marriage celebrant I knew she would be perfect for us! In the lead up to our wedding when we were stuck for a few ideas, the first person we would contact was Miranda. She is so knowledgeable and passionate about weddings, it was amazing to have all of her ideas and resources at hand. Such a big help in what would normally be a stressful time! Miranda even kindly recommended Meeko and Redge Photography to us who she thought would be perfect for the relaxed vibe we wanted – she was right! 
On our wedding day Miranda did an fantastic job of meeting and greeting our guests, we received a lot of comments about how lovely Miranda was. Our ceremony went off without a hitch – Miranda kept the ceremony nice and relaxed and she added a dab of that awesome sense of humour she has! One of our guests commented to me that Miranda seemed so invested in our special day, and she’d never been to a wedding where the celebrant felt like a friend by the end of it – probably the perfect way to describe Miranda.
Miranda, we can not thank you enough for all of your help leading up to and on the day of our wedding, we couldn’t have asked for more in a celebrant! 5 out of 5 gold stars for you!
