I have enjoyed the privilege of being a marriage celebrant in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland since 2008. In that time I have worked with hundreds of happy couples as they sealed their love through marriage. My focus for your wedding ceremony is to capture your personalities and celebrate your love in a way that truly represents who you are. Yes, I need you to do some homework to enable me to capture and use your words as much as possible. I love to write and tell stories and your wedding ceremony becomes your story. There will be fun and laughter, there will be shy smiles and a-haa moments and there will be some gravitas – after all you are changing your legal status. I want you to leave your ceremony with an amazing feeling of joy that sets the tone for the rest of your celebrations. My commitment to you is one of a professional, friendly and relaxed service providing you with the ceremony you want.
Words cannot express what a fantastic ceremony you did. We laughed and cried and it was perfect. Your professionalism is outstanding. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding and in part that was because of you. We have been to quite a few weddings and your ceremonies would have to be the best we have ever seen. It was so personal and passionate. You have helped us create the perfect memory that we will treasure for the rest of our life.

...and from the bride's parents:
Tonight we (Johanna's parents in Durban South Africa)watched the video of Graham & Johanna's wedding ceremony. We were both very touched by your thoroughness and how you personalized it. Thank you for putting so much effort in. We could not wish for a better or more intimate handling. You thought of everything and it sounded as if you knew them all your life. Graham, Johanna and the children all looked so happy.

I have finally gotten around to writing to you and I am sorry this has taken me so long.
Brett and I wanted to thank you for a beautiful wedding ceremony on New Years Eve. I personally wanted to say how much trust and confidence you installed in me right from the moment we met.
My wedding day was one of many mixed feelings as it was something I had dreamt about for so long although I was extremely nervous about being too sad with the absence of both of my parents.
You helped me to overcome this in a way you most likely do not realise. You made me feel comfortable and like we were being married by a dear family friend.
You are a wonderful marriage celebrant and Brett and I wish you all the best for your future.
Wendy & Brett.
Just wanted to say thank-you very much for the outstanding job, you did stepping in at the last minute and creating a ceremony from scratch for our beautiful wedding day. We were so happy to have you there to marry us. Given the circumstances, you absolutely smashed it! Everyone made comments on what a great job you did. We really appreciate how little time you had and how quickly you pulled it all together - so thank you, thank you, thank you.
Ben & Leanne.
