Melanie is the celebrant of choice for New Zealand Weddings Magazine, 'Dream Wedding' Competition, 2011- 2017.            Her compassion and professionalism make her a popular funeral celebrant.


New Zealand Weddings Magazine is the leading bridal magazine in New Zealand, our publication is an authority on the best industry specialists. We have come to know Melanie Kerr over the past eight years and recognise her as one of Auckland's leading marriage celebrants. She was chosen out of a number of celebrants in the Auckland area that our 109,000 readers identified as being the best to work with. She also came highly recommended by the top wedding planners we are associated with who suggested Melanie for her compassion, integrity and absolute commitment to the couples she weds.

I have worked with Melanie closely on a number of projects within the wedding industry. She is our main advisor to the magazine on any editorial we run regarding celebrants. She has an intimate knowledge of the industry and is passionate about being a celebrant. This is a role she takes very seriously and extends far beyond being employed to merely facilitate a ceremony. She  has shared with our readers her positive relationship and planning advice leading up to the nuptials.

Positive would be the best way to describe Melanie, from her voice as she answers the phone, through to every written communication, and a smile that radiates and provides the most incredible warmth to every wedding. - Cathy Horton. Brand Manager, New Zealand Weddings Magazine.


We would like to thank you for being such an integral part of our wedding. You did an exceptional job of being our celebrant. You were charming, polite and kind whilst ensuring things were kept on the right track. All the while your personality, charisma and grace shining through. We felt really privileged that you were there for us, not just on our special day but throughout the entire process. You made us feel at ease and reassured. We really had an incredible wedding day, a memory we will never forget. We enjoy looking back at the photos and seeing your beaming smile. - Travis and Crystel.


Melanie Kerr you are so incredible! Thank you for everything! We were so proud of you and honoured that you had such a special part of our day. My gosh you looked so pretty too! We had lovely comments from our guests about our gorgeous celebrant and several friends asked for your name and details. Thank you for your support, guidance, enthusiasm and time. You made us both feel so confident and safe. It wouldn't have been the same without you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You are amazing! -  Jenna & Dan


I can’t thank you enough for the amazing ceremony. Sorry about getting so emotional, I didn’t see that one coming. Everyone commented on what a great job you did and I think we’ve converted about 50 Australians into NZ lovers. After meeting with you on the Monday it set the tone for the rest of the week and allowed us to be calm leading into the wedding. We knew you understood exactly what we wanted and you put our nerves at ease. You won’t be forgotten!! Thanks Melanie, you played a really important role in the day and I’m so pleased you did.-  Abby & Ben.


A huge thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job as celebrant for our wedding. Your gorgeous energy was felt by all and we had a lot of people commenting on how great you were. We have plenty of friends getting married over the next year or 2 so you will have a few calls from them. - Greer & Andrew

Again - many thanks for helping make Jacinda & Steve's day such a lovely day. - Margaret, Jacinda's mum.


Thank you so much. We had a lot of compliments on the ceremony, everyone thought you were wonderful. I loved the ceremony it was the best part of my night.  I wasn't nervous and it was a lovely surprise all the sweet words you incorporated in the ceremony.
