Congratulations and welcome to The Kiss by Melanie. I believe my first wedding as a little girl in London in the 60's painted my imagination for the magic that only weddings can bring. Below photo was taken by my adoring photographer father capturing my thrilling time as a flower girl.


I am an authorised celebrant in the beautiful coastal and harbour city of Newcastle. And, I am an actor too! I have been a busy background actor on set in Sydney for many years using my imagination for various character actor roles. And I have also tread the boards in a few theatre productions here in Newcastle. All of the make believe roles were thrilling and will help me get in character for your surprise weddings. But I must say if you book a fancy dress wedding ill just wear the costume but be still me. Sorry to say, I don't do accents or play unusual characters haha.

Acting is in the blood as my mother was a trained theatre actor in the 50's so I grew up with the love of acting at a very early age. 

I  believe my warm, fun personality with my creative imagination would be ideal for your future wedding. I can guide you through my coaching. This guidance will help you on the day to feel all the heart felt feelings you have for each other and lead to a very emotional but happy day

I offer full weddings which I call ALL THAT GLITTERS, Surprise Weddings ALL THAT GLITTERS/SURPRISE and Fancy Dress Weddings called THE GREAT GATSBY. And yes I own a flapper dress :-) 

I hope you enjoy The Kiss By Melanie experience.

We were lucky enough to have Melanie marry us on the 22.2.22. Instantly we were greeted with a lovely kind smile and welcoming presence. She helped to put our nerves at ease. And reassured us that everything would be okay. The ceremony was simple and sweet just the way we wanted it. We were all sprung on last minute that the local news would be covering our ceremony. Melanie handled it like a seasoned veteran. A real professional. We can't begin to thank Melanie enough. Melanie is a truly beautiful person inside and out.
