Lindy Cooke Celebrant wedding flowers, exchanging rings, ceremonies


Hi, my name is Melinda Cooke but please call me Lindy ~ most people do! I am happily married and have two children and two young grandchildren. Our family moved to the Northern Rivers area 23 years ago and absolutely love the lifestyle here.

Having worked in advertising, marketing and event management roles, I was inspired to become an authorised Marriage Celebrant after attending a beautiful and moving wedding some time ago.

I have successfully completed the 13 units of study which make up Certificate IV in Celebrancy through Australian Celebrations Training. I am also registered as a  Celebrant with the Attorney-General’s Dept. and am a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants.

I have a wide range of resources available including poems, quotes and song suggestions which you are welcome to use or, if you prefer, you can supply your own unique wording, or we can use a combination of both yours and mine as part of the ceremony. As well, I offer a number of different and meaningful ceremonies which can be incorporated to add an individual and personal touch to your special day.

I am available for bookings in the Northern Rivers area and am happy to discuss arrangements if your chosen venue is outside this area.

Everyone deserves an amazing ceremony, one that reflects their style, for their special day. For me, being a celebrant is not a job, it’s an opportunity to meet an array of different people and to use my creative background to write and deliver a personalised ceremony for each of them. So, if you’re planning a wedding for a hundred or more guests or a handful of your closest family and friends, or if you’d like to welcome or farewell a special family member, or celebrate another important occasion, please feel free to contact me via phone or email so that we can arrange a time to get together for an obligation-free meeting. For couples who live interstate or overseas, I am more than happy to connect with you via Facebook Messenger video chat or Skype.

I look forward to meeting you, honouring your wishes and designing a ceremony from the heart … just for you.
