About My Business

Hi! I’m Margie…
Thank you for considering Metamorphis Ceremonies to be your official Celebrant for your ceremony. I’d be honoured to be your celebrant. I’m available for ceremonies anywhere in Australia, but mostly perform ceremonies in the Hunter Valley region. I believe in making each ceremony I perform meaningful, memorable and magical.
I’m passionate about being a Celebrant and will lead you through the process in a fun and friendly way. I’m creative and take a unique approach- ensuring that your ceremony is personalised and special.
I perform weddings, vow renewals, baby namings and funerals/ memorials. I’m an organised MC who will make your reception or event run smoothly. My version of the shoe game for wedding receptions is always a hit!
My funeral ceremonies are a true celebration of life and I take a lot of care in preparing an amazing ceremony to honour the person who has died and support the families and friends. I also offer a different service in meeting with people prior to death- either due to terminal illness or just in pre-planning. This involves an interview which I can also record and edit as a “Love Legacy” for the family.
I see celebrancy as a vocation and would love to meet with you soon! M xx

What Makes My Business Unique (My P.O.D.)

For weddings- I write each ceremony from scratch, creating a bespoke ceremony that reflects your personalities and intentions. I write your love story to share as part of the day and look after the ambience pre and post wedding with regards to music as well. I have a background and degree in theatre, so choreograph powerful bridal entries. I provide a WOW experience for all my couples.

For baby namings- I have a background in Early Childhood and build rapport easily with children and young families. I create beautiful ceremonies that are loving and fun.

For funerals- I honour the person’s memory and hold the space for the guests to grieve and celebrate the life of their loved one.

For MC work- I run the event with a sense of flow and professionalism. My shoe game is always a hit!

For Speaking- I am a strong speaker who is willing to be vulnerable to cause a shift.
