Wedding Tips # 3: Our Favourite Wedding Celebrants in Melbourne

It’s your big day. You’ve already booked an amazing videography package with Iconic Pictures and now you need to fill in those missing blanks.

Iconic Pictures has had the privilege of working with some amazing vendors across various fields and in the following series of blogs you’ll find our favourites and their contact details.

In this blog we will be focusing on wedding celebrants. Your wedding celebrant is perhaps one of the most important parts of your wedding (besides us of course). The wedding celebrant is there to officially kick off your life as a married couple so it is important to choose this person carefully.

Having been in the wedding business for many years now, we have been able to work with many wedding celebrants. What is immediately obvious is that each celebrant will bring their own flavour to the ceremony, regardless of their legal obligations. The truely great celebrants will keep your audience engaged with anecdotes regarding the couple, a few jokes here and their and their unique personality. Regardless of who you pick, one thing is for sure, every wedding celebrant is full of love.

The following are some wedding celebrants we recommend (in no particular order)


Meriki is one of the finest celebrants we have worked with. Although maintaining a level of professionalism that is required for wedding celebrants, Meriki is not afraid to get personal. She will come from her loving heart as she recites the unique story of your relationship with your significant other. Meriki is a calm and collected soul who will ensure that the least amount of stress is placed upon the couple. Her relaxed nature will allow everyone in the audience and at the alter to bask in the feeling of love that surrounds every wedding.


Witty. Funny. A self proclaimed Stand-up celebrant. Paul is one of the funniest celebrants we have had the pleasure to work with. His personality will have your audience hanging on his every word as he tells the story of your love. If you’ve ever experienced a boring ceremony, then hire Paul. He’ll ensure that every person is cackling in their seats. Although Paul has a comedic side to him, he also comes with an incredible warm and tender heart. He practically bleeds love and it is evident in his ceremonies.


The one word we can think of to describe Sharon is fun. This short 3 letter word has a bunch of positive implications for your wedding. After all, everyone wants to have fun at a wedding. Sharon will engage your crowd, working with you to deliver the most authentic and entertaining story of how you two first met. She is able to hype up a crowd like no ones business.
