Meet Meredith

Meredith Crookes

Hi! I’m Meredith *wave*.

You can call me Mez, if you like. I became a marriage celebrant at the insistence of my dear friends who were getting married and had difficulty finding the right celebrant, which was apparently a celebrant just like me – relaxed, welcoming, organised, energetic, and happy (aw, shucks!).

Well blow me down with a feather, it turns out celebranting is a blast. It is so fun getting to know couples at this special time of their lives, and it’s a great privilege to facilitate their ceremony, guiding and assisting happy couples to become happily married couples.

I am half of a happily married couple, myself. We live in Alphington, and are lucky to also spend time with family on the Surf Coast. I love people, beach days, music, coffee, musical theatre, and laughing. I am also the Grammar Police, which makes the internet a difficult place, but is handy for the writing component of being a celebrant.

Marriage equality is finally here in Australia! I am thrilled that I can now help ALL couples get married.

Woot woot!

Some Lucky Couples

I have been so lucky to be a part of some wonderful weddings, here are just some of them

Fun and personal ceremonies with smiles aplenty

Congratulations! You’ve found your partner for life. That’s a real win, right there. Gold star.

Let’s create a ceremony so that you two can nestle in wedded bliss for keeps.

Your marriage ceremony is your once in a lifetime opportunity to stand in front of your dearest family and friends and tell them THIS IS IT! I found the person! I found the person I will love and cherish, the person I will dance with, celebrate with, converse, travel, swim, experience, dine, sleep and argue with for the rest of my days!

It is important to get it right. Let’s make sure your ceremony authentically reflects your unique partnership, sets the tone for the shindig afterwards, and for the beginning of your marriage.
I can’t wait to hear from you and help get you married!

Testimonials

Thank you so much for everything that you did for us. We appreciate it so very much. We can’t recommend you more to couples who are about to get married! You were amazing and so many people complimented us on the ceremony and how nice it was.

Britt Hughes

Meredith listened to us completely and created the exact ceremony that we wanted. We had so many compliments about our wedding afterwards. She is so lovely and charismatic, our friends are now also booking her in for their wedding!!

Jaime & Simon Hall

Such a considerate, kind and natural celebrant. I couldn't imagine anyone else marrying us.

Doug Ellinger

Beautiful Meredith, we feel so special to have had you as our celebrant - you were a highlight of our day! You have such a beautiful style - calm, joyful, heartfelt, sensitive but with a confidence that made everyone feel at ease.

Jess Jacques

Our wedding was made all the more special by Meredith being a part of it as our celebrant. She created a beautiful ceremony that was funny and reflected our personalities perfectly. Meredith has a warm, genuine personality and she made us feel at ease and comfortable through the whole process. I highly recommend her service.

Julia Jackman

Meredith was incredible. She married us back in August at a surprise wedding and made the whole experience so memorable. She reflected our lives perfectly with her ceremony and truly made it a night to remember!!

Jenn Mills

Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful and personal wedding ceremony for us! It was just perfect and you made us feel so comfortable through the whole process. Thank you, Meredith!

Sophie Wood

We loved your help in planning our ceremony, writing our story and giving us lots of ideas and suggestions along the way. We had every confidence that you would do a great job and your help when the ceremony had to move at the very last minute was invaluable. No need to shop around as you were our perfect celebrant! Thanks so much.

Ruth and Neil White

Thank you Meredith for being our wonderful celebrant. We could not ask for anyone more fantastic than you. You guidance was spot on and helped us to create our own unique day. Thank you so much for performing the most amazing poem by my fav Raymond Bartholomew. You captured our special day perfectly. Could not recommend your services highly enough.

Sam and Sean Barley

Peeps look no further in your search for a celebrant, we cannot recommend Meredith Crookes highly enough! She married us in October 2017 and she orchestrated our ceremony perfectly. It was personal and warm (she seamlessly included some family traditions and went along with our quirky, non-traditional vow ideas) and tailored it to exactly what we wanted. Meredith's guidance and support in the lead up to our wedding was amazing and super helpful - we felt overwhelmed and unsure where to start at first (ahhh weddings.....) and when we met with Meredith, she took all of that away and made us feel at ease! Thanks for everything Meredith, it's a day we'll never forget xx

Megan Lamont

Im so glad that we found Meredith Crookes. She managed to tell our story so well from just a short questionaire we filled out, she asked all the right questions and had all the answers for our many questions, from helping with our wedding vows to where should we stand? Our day wouldn't have been the same without you, thank you Meredith,

Madeleine & Andrew Morgan

Meredith was the best! We wanted an easy simple, hassle free ceremony with our own style and Mez delivered. She made every step easy and was professional throughout the process from the first moment we were in contact. If l had to do it all again Mez would be the first person l would call. Thanks Mez for all your help you were 10/10. Cheers Luke and Jac - yellow and black.
