'Love is Love'
Who I Am
There's a reason I've been described as a 'big, warm, hug' -
I'm always ready to comfort you, encourage you, hold your hand or dry your tears.
WM Celebrants is a full-service Celebrant business, based mainly in the Sutherland Shire,
but happy to travel to where I'm needed, north to Central Coast, south to Ulladulla
and west to the Blue Mountains.
I pride myself on my caring nature, my life experiences, and my ability to create a ceremony
that will express the love you have for each other in the most meaningful way
or a unique celebration of the life of a loved one.
I’m here to make sure that each and every event I’m involved with is inspiring, extraordinary, and unforgettable, be it a wedding, a renewal, a baby's naming day or an end of life event.

WHAT I DO ...
This is what I do, this feeling, captured in one amazing photo. Now THAT's love ...
If a couple I've just married achieve this level of happiness,
then their trust in me has been rewarded and I've done what I promised them I'd do!
Is it any wonder that I just LOVE this gig!
Weddings with Care and Support. Always.
Whatever your story, I'm here to make your wedding an extra special event. I'll be available at all times to guide you through the legalities and to support you through those times when you're needing a hug, a tissue,
or even a block of chocolate!
Trust me to be your person; from our first meeting until you actually marry the love of your life, because you can count on me. I might just be the celebrant you've always hoped for.
You certainly do create a wedding ceremony that is perfect for the couples and you go
above and beyond to make their day special. You are truly an amazing person. Jackie 23/10/21
How to summarise Wendi in a sentence or review?
It is impossible; she is an absolutely amazing person!
She coordinated our wedding, liaised with everyone involved
and added the most beautiful touches, to make it a truly special day!
Not only is Wendi an amazing person, but she also opened her home to my partner and me for our ceremony.
My partner Maddy was able to get ready in peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle
that is the start of a wedding. The work that Wendi put in before, during, after the ceremony
and to set up the backyard was way more than I would expect of ANY PERSON, let alone the celebrant.
The garden looked stunning - just see any of the photos that were taken!
We would very highly recommend Wendi to anyone for all celebrant needs! Rob & Maddy 16/10/21
We spent 16 months planning our wedding and Wendi was one of the first services we locked in! Upon first meeting her, it felt like we had known her for years, she was so accommodating and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. I was so nervous leading up to the wedding but Wendi always knew what to say to make sure I didn't over-think or over-stress about everything. Our wedding was spectacular! We can't recommend her services enough! Sammi & Kris
Thank you very much for all the work you did for our wedding I don't think it would have been the same if anyone else was our celebrant. We'll also be leaving a very positive review on your page. Thank you once again. Katie & Mitch
I offer elopements and intimate wedding ceremonies (up to 20pax) in my own tropical garden at Kurnell Sydney for no added venue cost. Amazing photo opportunities in the National Park or at Silver Beach, just down the road, give you plenty of options on your big day. Cool cafes are aplenty in Kurnell; there's a great Rec Club with delicious Asian cuisine, an onsite bbq set up for your culinary pleasure or maybe you could order in - Uber Eats, anyone?
'LOVE IS LOVE'
Proudly supporting the LGBTQIA+ community.
It's sure been a long road ....
From our first meeting, until you actually slip those rings on those fingers, you can count on me.
You've waited long enough - now I'm here waiting for you two to call me!

"Don't worry, it's going to be okay."
On behalf of the family, I wanted to say a big thank you to you for how you conducted the service on Friday. Your calming presence made it that bit easier for everyone to say their farewells to Dad.
We were all very pleased that we had you there on Friday guiding us through the service.
You were also a great fit with our family which was so important to us. 05/11/2021
Wendi you were amazing can't thank you enough.
Everyone is talking about the service and what a great job you did. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You were the perfect person to say goodbye to Brian and for that I'm grateful x Sharon
Thanks for the support and encouragement - the funeral service went off without a hitch.
So very grateful for that. RIP Ted Larsen OAM
Marriage Vow Renewal
Come on, you two, you know you'd like to re-live that wedding ceremony from 'back in the day'.
Trust me with your ideas and expectations - I'll put together a celebration of your long-time love for each other that will reinforce what your wedding meant to you, be it 10 years ago or 50!
I'm so happy that my husband and I got to renew our vows to each other surrounded by our children, grandchildren, family, and friends. It was such a special time for us, just as it will be for you.
"We're still in love, so let's do it again!"
Baby Naming Ceremonies
A celebration of your new baby.
Have you just had a new baby? A pink one or a blue one? I'm sure you'd agree that choosing a name for your son or daughter is a privilege that we sometimes take for granted. I'd love to create a meaningful and memorable ceremony for your newbie, be it traditional or a little bit left of field.
All you need to do is fill me in on the origin of the name,
pick a theme or a ritual that means something to you
and I'll do the rest. Easy, huh?
"I have called you by name, and you are mine"
Granddaughter Malibu had her naming day today in treacherous weather.
Thank you to our beautiful Celebrant, Wendi Murray who did a fantastic job.
Wonderful memories made today.
Justice of the Peace

From Weddings to Funerals and everything in between ...
I promise my dedication to your circumstances.
I have always, and I mean always, been driven to be in a position of care for my family, my friends, and my community. That drive was realized some time ago, and my role as a Celebrant has allowed me the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of a couple planning their wedding, through to a grieving family planning their loved one's funeral.
No matter what the circumstances of our connection, I promise to make myself available at all times.
I'll provide support in whatever form that may be required - trust me to get you through.
This is what I was born to do.
Get in touch today and let’s work together, whatever the occasion.
