Hello - My name is Barbara Mcconnell and I would like to introduce myself to you, especially if we have not had a chance to meet in person.
I have been a celebrant for five very full years in Wheelers Hill, about 20 km South East of Melbourne. I've been conducting Wedding Ceremonies, Naming Ceremonies, Union Ceremonies, Commitment Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows.
Many wonderful ceremonies later I still absolutely love what I do and bring my enthusiasm, smile and a wealth of experience to each and every celebration.
My website provides information which may assist you in planning your wedding day. It includes details of my services, some photographs. I have three levels of service to suit your budget and needs.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss and help plan your ceremony with you so please call me.
I have performed Wedding Ceremonies in the Dandenongs, Elopements to the Mornington Penninsula, Cliff top Renewal of Vows at Phillip Island, Same Sex Commitment at Werribee Mansion - in fact, you can hold your special ceremony anywhere in and around the Melbourne or Victoria area.
*Traditional or adventurous, from the simple to the extravaganza, I will tailor a ceremony to suit you.
*I like to encourage couples to incorporate any rituals such as Unity candles, Sand ceremonies, Rose ceremonies, Chinese tea rituals, Themed Ceremony, Dove release and lots more.
* A quote for full service is given at our first meeting, after I find out what you are looking for in your Ceremony. No hidden extras.
*I pride myself in producing a ceremony catering to your individual needs and excelling your expectations to give you the best day possible.
*A free no obligation Name Change Kit is yours for the Bride when you sign with me.
*Unlimited face-to-face, phone or email contact.
* No extra charge for travel under 50 km .
* Full on site rehearsal is included
* All legal documents provided and seen too.
After your chosen date is secured with a booking fee, we can complete the Notice of Intended Marriage at our first or subsequent meeting, which by law must be lodged with me no later than one month and one day and not more than 18 months prior to your wedding.
At that time, you will be required to produce your Birth Certificate if born in Australia, your Passport will suffice if born overseas, plus photo ID.
Also Divorce or Death documentation if you have been married before.
Barbara, we found your service to be outstanding, your attention to detail and professionalism for our wedding ceremony to be beyond reproach. We found your friendly and knowledgeable nature to be reassuring and confident. It made us feel warm and secure. We thank you for making our special day so special and would be happy and confident to recommend your Celebrant services to anyone.
Love, Paul and Maria Riley
We loved our wedding ceremony, it was the highlight of our wedding day. Thank you Barbara for all of your help, your advise and your large resource file. Thank you also for conducting our ceremony in the warm and assured way you did. We had many favourable comments from our guests. We wouldn't have changed a thing.

It was a great pleasure to have Barbara as our Celebrant, I was lucky enough to have a good friend of mine recommed her and would definitely pass her name to my friends and family.

Please contact me for that no obligation first meeting and I will explain ALL to you. I will take you through all the steps needed to complete a successful Marriage Ceremony, tailored especially for you.
Remember - it's YOUR day
Looking forward to meeting with you
Barb the celebrant. (more)
