80th Birthday Instaframe.

My Dad recently celebrated his 80th Birthday and we had no idea what to get for him... You pretty much have it all by the time you are 80. My family asked Melanie to arrange an Instaframe for him and she did not disappoint!


We filled out a very simple questionnaire about Dad and his life, and Melanie wrote the story of his life in rhyme, and surrounded the words with pictures of Dad and his family going back over the years. Dad was blown away by the detail and thoroughly enjoyed reminiscing over the years.


An unbeatable present for a big birthday!

Rhymed Wedding Speech.

I asked Melanie to write a poem for me for my sisters wedding. I am not a good public speaker so thought a poem summing up our lives together would be easier then telling boring stories.

It went down so well with the crowd and my sister. Melanie is so talented and so easy to work with. It was a pleasure dealing with her. My brother unexpectedly couldn't attend the wedding and Melanie added some verses in about him.

I would highly recommend InStanza for any speeches or poems needed for any event. I will definitely be using her again.

Wedding Instaframe and Speech on One.

Hi Melanie,

I'm only getting around to letting you know that the poem was an absolute 100% hit!!! It was so perfect! Everyone was talking about it. Even the next day I was getting asked how did I come up with such a fab story. I really wanted to take the credit, but I was honest and told the truth, that it was all down to Melanie at InStanza. It was just brill, exactly what I wanted. You are amazing! Thank you so so much!

Mother of the Groom Wedding Speech.

I was very nervous about making a speech at my son's wedding but wanted to make it memorable. I called Melanie and she instantly got me and what I needed.. She absolutely captured what I wanted to say. On the day of the wedding I was looking forward to reading it and to my amazement got a standing applause from all the guests.

I will be returning to Melanie when my second son marries.

My parents recently celebrated 50 years of marriage. Melanie in Instanza, has a very special gift and documented the journey of the

lifetime, of this amazing couple. With her clever use of prose and poetry. She paints a poignant, funny and respectful picture.

We laughed and cried and will always have this beautiful piece, to remind us of our parents achievement.

I am absolutely thrilled with the Instaframe we had created by Melanie. From providing a simple questionnaire she managed to work her magic and create a beautiful piece incorporating some fond memories into an authentic poem. It brought tears to the eyes for my

friends and I, when read aloud. Melanie went every extra mile to make the service smooth and simple and was

there to answer all questions had. Special memories now captured in a special piece; thank you so much.
