Testimonials

Melva has been brought to our attention through a friend.
Before we found a celebrant we found a spot for our ceremony!
It was in the middle of the Royal National Park in Sydney that included a hike through the bush.
After our first initial consultation over the phone we knew Melva, who was open for any kind of “wedding adventure” would be perfect for us.

As my Partner and I were based in Sydney and Melva in Queensland the communication was mainly via phone calls and email.
Her prompt, funny, and bubbly “I can do anything” attitude made it super easy to find the right words for our ceremony on the cliffs.Janine Johnston

We wish to thank you for your professional approach to our wedding ceremony and the lovely touch of essential oils. Everyone attending the ceremony enjoyed the service and commented on how beautiful it was. Nick and I found the ceremony to be everything we hoped for. Even the music from heaven!Debby and Nick
Melva beautifully conducted both our wedding ceremony and our daughter’s naming ceremony back in 2011. Not only is Melva undoubtedly professional in every way but her knowledge with words is invaluable, making the whole process smooth and easy. I highly recommend Melva Elvey as a celebrant.Mellissa McDonald

Thank you so much for everything. The day was just so wonderful. I think about it all the time.Les, Sally, and Hannah
Thanks Melva for your kindness and respect shown for our family in the preparation of the funeral ceremony for our son Nick. He would have loved the ceremony you created. You spoke with such care and compassion and made us not only cry but also laugh as we remembered our boy and the impact his life had on all of us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.The Boylan family
Thank you so much for performing the ceremony for the lost sailors on the island. Your service was delivered with respect and was very moving. A great memorial service all roundShane
When our mate died and Melva arrived to hold the ceremony I remember thinking ‘what have we got here’. Our mate was no ordinary man being a much loved character and a Reiki Master who taught spiritual practices in town. Melva delivered a powerful ceremony with reverence. When I die I’m having her at my funeral. Rick and family
Our family is most grateful to Melva whom we went to see at a time of great stress in our lives which was the departing of our much loved Mother and Grandmother. Melva spoke respectfully to our family members and friends gathering facts and stories. The resulting ceremony she created from our words and thoughts portrayed Nancy’s personality and life to a T.Many thanks Lance and Trish
Thanks very much Melva. We appreciate the time you spent talking with us so we could create our wedding day in a relaxed way. Loved your energy, warmth and humour when sharing our chosen words with our close friends. It was the best way to start our married life together. Thanks again.Richard and Shelley
Our friends are still talking about our ceremony! Your ideas for the handfasting and how to involve everyone present was fantastic. Love your work! Wishing you all the best.Marilyn and George
Wow on the crystals and the ceremony you created for us. We loved everything about the day and the special care you took to ensure we weren’t nervous. Many blessings to you Melva.Catherine and Tony
What a fun day you helped us create. Sorry about the track across the pasture and the cow pads! You met every challenge with a smile and good grace even the downpour of rain. Lucky we had umbrellas and you! Any one wishing to start their new life on the right foot should choose you as their celebrant!Robyn, Peter, and kids
Our deepest thanks for your caring and respectful manner when conducting our living ceremony. It was lovely to have all our friends, not only present, but contributing to our ceremony. It surprised some but how sensible to be still alive and hear all the good thoughts people have about oneself instead of waiting until we are dead.June and Harold
