Here's a few words from past happy couples and trusted sources. 

Tracy and Jesse

Jesse and I wanted a short & sweet ceremony that felt authentically us - and that was exactly what we got.  
From the very first conversation with Elaine, Jesse & I knew we had made the best decision by having her be a part of our wedding. Elaine is professional, personable and guided us through the entire ceremony - so many things we didn't know! Elaine is well presented, articulate, funny and thoughtful. She is organised and kept everything running smoothly and didn't miss a beat which meant our wedding went off without a hitch. 
All our friends and family commented on what an amazing job Elaine did (many thought we had known her well before because of how natural it all was). We could not have asked for more and feel so lucky to have come across Elaine in our search for a celebrant. Can't recommend her enough.


Thank you Elaine for everything !

Wedding Day

Thank you so much for orchestrating such a special and thoughtful ceremony for us yesterday! We had the best time, and your suggestions and your calming and warm nature made the day even more special!

You are a lovely person and we feel very fortunate that you could officiate our ceremony! :) You are right, we will always remember it.

"Thanks again for making our wedding day so special. :)"

Yen and Johnson met with me in a local cafe and were keen to discuss their dream wedding.  They were also talking to other celebrants but by the end of our time together had decided to go with me. Yay!

They particularly wanted something relaxed and unfussy and I worked with them to craft the perfect ceremony, which they loved.

So fabulous to be part of their special day and to design a ceremony that was absolutely right for them.

Simply outstanding!

A beautiful, engaging ceremony with impeccable presentation and very carefully considered choreography. VERY well rehearsed.

An incredibly high standard - that many would aspire to.

How incredibly fortunate couples are to have you.
