“Making your special day joyous and carefree.”


Congratulations on your engagement. Hello, my name is Meryl McGinn. I am a highly regarded and well respected celebrant with style and integrity who has over 10 years  experience.  I have worked in all aspects of media including television, radio film and theatre over 40 years.

I will work with you to create a ceremony that is tailored to your individual needs and meets all legal requirements leaving you with a feeling of complete joy. I embrace all aspects of any ceremony in ways that elevate them from ordinary to fabulous.

I specialise in weddings in the Jervis Bay area and I am happy to travel to other locations. I have conducted ceremonies in Nowra, Terara, Berry, Kiama, Kangaroo Valley, Mollymook, Milton, Sydney and the Highlands.

It is all about the attention to detail and creating a joyous day for all. I  also perform commitment ceremonies, funerals, naming ceremonies and renewal of vows. Current member of Australian Marriage Celebrants Incorporated.


I am thrilled to advise that I have been selected as a finalist in these very prestigious awards. Cannot tell how humbled and delighted I am to be nominated. Thank you so much to those amazing couples who nominated me. I am a winner already. Thank you, thank you I just love what I do and try to be the very best I can be.


To ensure that your big day is the joyous occasion that you desire, I will ensure that:

  • All legal documents that are required are registered and lodged correctly according to the Marriage Act 1961
  • A professional standard PA system will be provided

  • A signing table decorated to compliment your theme is provided

  • You have as many meetings with me as you need to achieve the wedding of your dreams

  • A selection of ceremony options are presented to you

  • An information pack with relevant paperwork and documentation

I can advise you on numerous stunning sites for your ceremony ranging from gorgeous beach locations in Jervis Bay to the tranquil serenity of local wineries  or the charm of nearby villages such as Kangaroo Valley.

My many years of experience as a marriage celebrant have allowed me to develop the ability to deal with the many different situations that arise in the lead up to your wedding and the big day itself. That experience to deal with testing circumstances can be the difference between a joyous day and a challenging one.




Same Sex Marriage

I have been delighted that legislation has passed that allows marriage equality.
It will be my pleasure to officiate at the marriages of same sex couples and all members of the LGBTI community.

Naming Day

If you elect a non religious ceremony to celebrate the arrival of your child and his or her introduction to family and friends, a naming day is the perfect alternative.
There are no legalities involved with Baby Naming ceremony, they are more just a recognition of the gift of life and love and the miracle of birth.
I would love to share your day and provide a ceremony that is filled with joy and special moments for you and your family and friends to enjoy and remember.


The passing of a loved one is a sad and often traumatic time in your life.  I can assure you of a respectful service, delivered with warmth and compassion, that would ease the burden of that sorrowful occasion.



Renewal of vows

I can also officiate the renewing of vows.
