ARRAN & rACHEL, wed with a twist in DECEMBER 2018

"I feel like there aren't even words to describe how much we loved having Mel at our wedding. Right from the start we bonded straight away over our dogs and I knew I had found our celebrant!

Over the next months Arran and I both felt that Dave and Mel were more friends than just a wedding vendor. To include special surprise additions to our ceremony and interact with our family and friends is what takes Wed with a Twist above and beyond.

5 stars, 10/10 whatever the highest ranking is!!!

Words can’t describe how blessed we were to have Mel as our celebrant!

Thanks Mel xx"

"Where do I even begin? Mel was absolutely incredible! She was warm, friendly, bubbly and went above and beyond to ensure our ceremony was nothing short of perfect!

She was professional, an excellent communicator, and was so very accommodating with special requests we threw her way. Mel kept our nerves down and we really connected with her right from the start!

We absolutely loved the fact that Mel told our love story, interacted with our family beforehand and incorporated surprise sections in our ceremony. Our ceremony felt so real, honest and funny - exactly what we asked for!

We would highly recommend Mel to anyone looking for a down to earth, all round outgoing celebrant who will not only wed you with a twist but feel like your friend by the end of the whole process. ❤️ "

"What an amazing individual and celebrant Mel is! She ensured that our ceremony was a perfect refection of us as a couple - casual, engaging, heavily involving our close family and friends and balancing both our cultures (Greek and Vietnamese). She also very diplomatically mediated on our behalf when the stress became a little too much.

Our ceremony was incredibly personal and full of laughter! We had so many guests approach us afterwards to give compliments on the ceremony - most were along the lines of “that was the best ceremony we’ve ever seen” and “your celebrant did an amazing job”.

Mel really does go above and beyond and it’s clear she absolutely loves what she does. We felt fully supported right from the beginning - style of ceremony, types of rituals, writing our own vows. Oh and her husband Dave is a total pro, handling the music.

We highly recommend Mel and Wed with a Twist! If we could give more than 5 stars, we would!"
