I will help you create your dream wedding
EXPERIENCED WEDDING PLANNER, STYLIST & COORDINATOR IN
VICTORIA & MELBOURNE
My passion for weddings started in 2017 when I had the privilege of planning my brother’s wedding at our family property in Shepparton, Victoria.
He and his wife-to-be both had a clear vision on how they wanted their wedding day to unfold, however they were unsure how to navigate the planning and styling of their special day.
With my event management experience in major sport and entertainment events in Melbourne, such as the Australian Open, Sia and Paul McCartney, I transferred my expert knowledge from large events to help them create a relaxed and memorable wedding they both loved.
I quickly realised through planning, styling and coordinating my brother’s wedding that this was what I wanted to do. With that, Mellyrain Events was born.
My mission is to help couples handcraft weddings across Victoria while reducing stress, freeing up time and bringing peace of mind for couples so they can be present and enjoy their wedding day.
It’s an indescribable feeling helping couples bring their wedding vision to life and guiding them through their wedding experience.
I ensure that every wedding is meticulously planned and organised from start to finish, as well as an enjoyable and memorable experience for couples.

"With such a short turn around planning our wedding, Melanie was able to help us consolidate all of our ideas and wishes and turn them into a solid plan that we were able to execute in 5 weeks.
Everything in our online folder was so easy to navigate and helped us to visualise what needed to be done.
Melanie helped us with our wedding day rehearsal and helped us to figure out all of the timing with our music and made everyone feel at ease that we knew what we had to do on the day so that we could enjoy it and not worry about the little things.
The day of the wedding everything ran smoothly, and as we had discussed.
The set up of the ceremony in the garden looked beautiful and all the little details were set up for me as we had planned so I didn’t have to worry about it on the day.
Thank you Melanie"

“There are so many things I could say about Melanie I just don’t know where to start!
Right from our first interaction, Melanie was professional yet EXCITED to hear about our upcoming day.
I was blown away with the level of detail she goes into while working on your wedding.
As a control freak myself I never in a million years dreamed I would have any type of planner or coordinator helping me - but Melanie was committed to making sure our wedding went exactly how we wanted it to go, so we could relax with our family and friends.
On the day she was always right behind us with exactly what we needed at the time, be it water after our ceremony, helping to bustle my dress or assisting guests in whatever way they needed.
I don’t even want to think about how stressed I would have been at our wedding if I didn’t have Melanie there running the show.
Thank you Melanie!”

"Our dream wedding location was outdoors on the family farm.
However, the only barrier to this was having someone we could trust to coordinate the day.
We are so glad we found Mellyrain Events!
Melanie and Sam took the stress out of having a wedding at a location where there was no on-site event coordinator.
Additionally, Melanie was invaluable during the weeks leading up to the wedding as she used her significant experience and knowledge to provide us with some invaluable tips and reminders for when planning a wedding.
All in all, we couldn’t have hoped for a better wedding!"

"We first heard about Melanie on Instagram via an old friends page. We found her at the perfect time n our wedding journey.
We were planning a surprise wedding at our engagement party on a family property. We had picked a date, ordered invites and that was all.
On first meeting with Melanie it was like seeing an old friend, she was so kind and giving with her wedding expertise.
Every meeting with Melanie, was so informative, she was able to help us select vendors and other little thing we would need for our special day.
We had to change dates and change plans what feels like millions of times because of COVID and Melanie was so good with helping us though that process.
When our day finally came, it was great that Melanie was there on the day to co ordinate everything for us, from setting up a wet weather plan to making sure we were eating and drinking throughout the day.
It was great that we were able to enjoy our day, all our guests and vendors commented about how relaxed we were on our day and we contributed that to Melanie.
She is worth her weight in gold!"
