Michelle Shannon 
Marriage Celebrant

Creating a Ceremony to remember. 

My goal is to create the wedding ceremony 
you've always dreamt of.

I like to bring a young, fun, modern approach to 
your special day.. designing a ceremony that reflects your unique personality and style.
A modern wedding that you and your guests will delight in.

I'm a romantic at heart and a ceremony I attended some time ago inspired me to become a Marriage Celebrant.

 I hope to bring the same kind of modern professionalism
and enjoyment to your special day.

of their day and their ceremony with you... Michelle

Hi Michelle..We had the most amazing and magical day. Thank you so much for being apart of our special day and creating a lovely, moving and heartfelt ceremony and adding all your personal touches.
We had so many people come up to us and say how fantastic you were and what a wonderful ceremony 
it was. 
You had a caring and touching manner and had thought about all the little things that made our ceremony just that little bit special. It still makes us so happy thinking back to that day. We both had so much fun. I didn't realise how much fun I would actually have and its such a wonderful memory to hang onto.Thanks again for being our marriage celebrant it was so lovely to have you apart of our special and memorable day.Cheers....Matt and Lauren

Dear Michelle
A huge thank you from James and I. We absolutely adored our ceremony and truly believe that we could not have had a better celebrant to marry us. Our guests were blown away and all agreed that you were simply wonderful. I feel incredibly fortunate to have convinced you to marry us and hope your gorgeous little girl didn't mind too much you going to work again when you'd planned a day off.Thank you again.
Much love Rebeccah and James

Jennifer and James - The Fig Tree
Hi Michelle,Thank you so much for being our celebrant.
You might hear it all the time, but we had so many compliments on our celebrant - almost everyone was talking about how great you were the next day! Dealing with us two must have been a little unusual I guess also. haha.
Thank you, again! We had the best of our lives, Jen + James

We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful way you put together and delivered our wedding ceremony. I had no idea a ceremony could be so wonderfully engaging, personal and still be filled with so much love without being mushy, bringing people to tears and laughter all at once.
The toughest boys admitted they were close to tears and the couples caught up in the middle of wedding season (fifth wedding in four weeks) said that the ceremony was absolutely above all others and they had never seen such a beautiful, personal wedding.
People were asking us if you were a family friend,because everyone was so comfortable around you!
I will never forget our wedding day, and you went so far in making it perfect just for us, thanking you with all our hearts -
proud husband and wife, Morgan and Renée xxx
Rosie and James - Gurragawee

Dear Michelle,
We are now back from honeymoon and wanted to drop you a note to say, thanks for being an amazing celebrant for our wedding.We wanted a ceremony that was relaxed and non-stuffy, yet still recognised the formality of the occasion and could not have chosen a better celebrant than you!!  There was so many comments from guests on the amazing ceremony and although it all went past in a whirl for us, we will always remember it clearly.  Your help in the lead-up, not to mention the many laughs during our rehearsal, was part of the special experience. Amongst all the excitement I am still impressed that I managed to remember the ring-exchange handmanoeuvre!!  Thanks again and all the best for the upcoming weddings – you have a very special role in the world, and a very special place in our hearts. Rosie and James  xxxooo 
Natasha and Rupert - Lennox Head

was the ceremony.
We hope you had as much fun as we did with it :)You have been a delight to deal with, I can't express my gratitude enough....
Kind regards, Natasaha and Rupert

Hi Michelle!!
Thanks so much for being a part of our special day.
It was absolutely amazing and everyone is still raving about it and said how wonderful you are. A lot of the Irish contingent who are used to long drawn out church catholic weddings have been inspired to even start making their weddings a little more fun :-)
We had a fab time- take care and will hopefully bump into you one day!

Hi Michelle,  married life is treating us well, it's probably even better
than expected which is really special.
Thank you so much for the beautiful service you gave for us.
I can't tell you how many people have commented on how lovely you were and how touching the ceremony was. The ring blessing and hand ceremony were so beautiful and bring a tear to my eye every time I watch our video. 
It was really important for both of us that our ceremony was a reflection of us and the love we share, you created that for us and we can't be more grateful. 
The entire wedding went perfectly.
 Overall it was the most special day and was made even better
by the people we surrounded ourselves with. 
 We do hope to see you again one day, 
until then we wish you all the best.    Elise & Matt Callender xx

Hi Michelle,
Thank you so much for being our celebrant.  As I walked down the isle, 
I must say I was a bit concerned that Nick was going to 
hyperventilate and pass out!!  But his breathing soon returned 
to normal thanks to the relaxed,
fun and loving atmosphere you created during our ceremony.  
You captured our personalities to a tee and created a 
ceremony so special that we will remember for many years to come.
 So many of our family and friends commented on what an amazing job you did.  We will certainly recommend you to others.
 Thanks again Michelle, you are awesome!!  Hugs xx Tanya & Nicholas

Hi Michelle
We had such a wonderful day, made so special by your gorgeous ceremony. You were a very special part of our day and we'll always remember how lovely the service was. Everyone commented about the service and thought you were brilliant.

The pipers and kilts were certainly special and by the end of the afternoon I don't think there was one guest who hadn't shed a tear or three!
Take care & many thanks,
