about me

Hello, my name is Elisa Westein. 
I am an authorised celebrant, registered to perform legal marriages & life milestone ceremonies in Australia


I am a 39 year old mum of four gorgeous children, Christian, Daniel, Thomas and Amelia. I am a friendly, fun, open-minded professional and I love celebrations! 
I had the privilege of marrying my husband Erik twice, with an official ceremony in The Netherlands and later a renewal ceremony here in Melbourne. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the preparation, but most enjoyable was the process of writing our wedding ceremony – this was the experience that inspired me to become a celebrant. Recalling our first kiss and all the special times we’ve shared through our journey was truly amazing. With the guidance of our supportive marriage celebrant, we were then able to create a unique ceremony with vows that were just ours. 
Since becoming a celebrant, I have been privileged to be a part of many joyous occasions, as well as many sad ones. My role as a funeral has been the most rewarding.   

Allow me the honour to assist you at your most special moment. I will work closely with you both to create a ceremony that is unique, engaging and heartfelt, but most importantly, yours. 
My celebrant role includes unlimited meetings, either in person, by phone or email, use of a professional PA system, and also completion and submission of all related paperwork. 
It will be my pleasure to ensure that you have an enjoyable lead up to your ceremony and also to feel at ease knowing you're in great hands on your special day.
Contact me today to arrange an informal, obligation-free meeting to listen to your ideas and discuss how we can create a meaningful and unique ceremony together.

Elisa’s creative personality makes her an excellent choice to help you commemorate your life milestones. Allow Elisa Westein the opportunity to deliver a ceremony that is unique and engaging, heartfelt and most importantly, yours.

A wedding ceremony is a celebration of your love and commitment to one another. This is one of the most meaningful times in your life and your ceremony needs to be reflective of you and your partner's ideas, aspirations, and core values. Your promise to each other is an amazing symbol and it is wonderful to be able to declare this promise in front of your family and friends. When it comes time to saying those special words to each other, it is my promise to you that your ceremony will give your union the respect it deserves.

One of the most rewarding roles I have is conducting funerals. Saying farewell to a loved one is incredibly sad but brings with it the opportunity to celebrate a life and convey how much they were loved. I believe that making the funeral ceremony really meaningful can be an important step in moving through your grief.

Naming ceremonies

The birth of a child is a wonderful occasion for everyone involved. A naming ceremony is a lovely way of welcoming this precious new life into your circle of family and friends and together we can design a ceremony that is very personal to you. 


Renewal of vows

This ceremony is for married couples that wish to celebrate renewing their marriage vows in a unique and personal ceremony.  As the ceremony is non-legally binding, it is a great option for couples who have married overseas but wish to involve Australian friends and family in the celebration of their marriage- as I did myself. 

Together, let’s have a fantastic time doing it all over again!

From the moment we met you Elisa, we knew you would be the person to marry us. You made us feel so comfortable and you really took the time to get to know us, which was great. You had the perfect ceremony in mind for us and met all our expectations. We thank you for making our ceremony so personal to our love story. We will always remember you. Thank you so much!

Elisa is a wonderful celebrant! She conducted our ceremony in a fun and professional manner and is very organised. She made sure everything ran perfectly from our first meeting through to the lead up to our big day. Her dedication and preparation to make our day special did not go unnoticed. Our guests loved it. Thank you Elisa for sharing our special day!

Elisa is fantastic! She is so warm, friendly, funny and knowledgeable! Our guests all asked us if Elisa was an old family friend, as the connection between us was so visibly strong. We couldn’t have wished for a better celebrant to be by our side on our big day!

Elisa is amazing! Elisa was a celebrant at a friend’s wedding and we loved everything about how she conducted their ceremony, so we decided she was essential for our own. She supports you throughout the whole process and makes the ceremony fun and engaging; she is the perfect celebrant!

An incredible celebrant who makes you feel important from the get go! Elisa was amazingly supportive when it came to writing our vows and was able to explain the whole ceremony to us so that on the day we were so comfortable, we literally felt like the only two people there!

Elisa was absolutely, hands down the BEST! All our guests loved her easy going nature and her bubbly personality. She made everyone feel like family and we didn’t stop hearing how much they loved our ceremony. I knew after our first meeting that we would choose Elisa to be our celebrant, and although I met with others I kept coming back to her. We had a couple meetings and Elisa made sure we had everything covered at every step of the way. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough - if you choose to have Elisa you will NOT be disappointed!
