Mel and Duncan – 6 January 2018

I love that you challenge me to be a better person every day, to think more, explain more, and understand more. I see the world differently with you by my side….

I love every little thing about you. I love that your toast has to be cut into soldiers or it immediately becomes inedible. I love that you can make a pun out of literally anything. I love that you can sing One Week by the Barenaked Ladies at karaoke without missing a beat.

It’s a pretty special feeling when friends get married. It’s an honour being asked to officiate their marriage ceremony. In this case it was doubley-special as these amazing humans have been married TWICE – first as a civil union partnership and then as a married couple! An excuse for two parties and we had a ball for this celebration.

The day started off rainy and overcast which meant plenty of moody photos. The lead up to the day was a bit stormy which heightened the anticipation for all! However, the weather cleared for the ceremony at Woodside Estate in Hamilton and the day was topped off by an amazing sunset and some phenomenal star photos. Isaac from Perspective Photo + Cinema captured the four-seasons-in-one-day to perfection and it was a delight working along side him and you can check out the amazing gallery of photos here. Kerr and Ladbrook did a great job of catering and the girls were dolled up by the Sample Room in Cambridge.

Mel and Duncan, it was an absolutely pleasure and your photos warm my soul. The dance floor of epic proportions will be burned in my memory as will the love in your eyes when you said your vows to each other. I’m lucky to count you both as friends. Bring on the vow renewal haha!


“Miranda, it meant the world to us having you as our celebrant (for the second time!). We are so happy that we were married by you – someone who is not only the most awesome celebrant we could wish for, but someone who is such an amazing friend to us both. You have seen our journey together over the years, and having you up there with us on the big day was just so special.

You guided us through the whole process (again!), were uber-efficient and made everything so easy – we knew we were in excellent hands! The ceremony you put together for us was so beautiful and captured our feelings perfectly – we couldn’t have asked for better. You also made it SUPER fun and we had lots of laughs, we have so many happy memories and a big part of that is down to you.

It is easy to see you are so passionate about what you do, and your enthusiasm and zest for life and love truly sets you apart. Thank you for all your help and for making our wedding day so special. 10/10, would recommend!!  ”
