Emma did such a fantastic job as celebrant for our Hunter Valley wedding last month. She's articulate, incredibly professional, but still so approachable and personable. We wanted to create a custom ceremony and Emma was there every step of the way to guide us, provide text material, advise us on wording and structure of the ceremony and go over everything multiple times. Nothing was too much trouble; she even wrote the most beautiful, personalised introduction, which really made the ceremony that bit more special. We were also very impressed by the way Emma went out of her way to take the time to get to know us and was happy to be contacted at any time for any kind of question throughout the whole process. On the day of the wedding, she was a calm, supportive presence from the first moment, getting there early to check in with us, go over any last minute queries and making sure everything ran smoothly. The ceremony went beautifully, Emma's delivery was perfect - well-spoken, kind and in keeping with the gravity and joy of the occasion. I had so many guests come up to me afterwards and tell me how much they had enjoyed it and what a wonderful job Emma had done. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted from a celebrant when I started looking for one, but I honestly couldn't imagine having found someone better than Emma.Claire and Olly Pokolbin
Thanks so much for our ceremony - it was such an amazing day, and one that we will never forget. You were a perfect fit for us as a celebrant, and even though we'd only met a few times you made us feel so comfortable and relaxed - as though we were being married by someone we knew, not just a stranger. Thank you so much for your help and advice in organising everything! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you as a celebrant to future couples.Sam and Tim Toronto, NSW
Emma was an amazing addition to our wedding. Choosing a celebrant off a website can be tricky. But Emma made the entire process a breeze. From start to finish it felt like we were dealing with a friend, rather than the stranger she once was. Her professionalism, her helpfulness and her positive, creative flair really made our wedding the perfect event for everyone. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone! Ten out of ten!! Thanks again Emma!!Tyler and Dean Newcastle NSW
Firstly, thank you for a wonderful ceremony! We received so many comments on how smooth, engaging and enjoyable the ceremony was. People loved the prologue that you wrote. Only complaint was from a speech maker that their content was stolen (!) but that was my fault for not distributing the prologue!
The running around you did for us when it looked like the rain would move us off the grass was appreciated, so thank you for that too.
Only feedback I have is for you to continue doing the same thing that you're doing now. We thought you did a great job and will be recommending you to any friends getting married in the Hunter.
Thanks again, and best of luck with future weddings.
Thank you so much for being our celebrant.
The only feedback we have for you: keep everything they way you do it now! It was fantastic to work with you!
We were at a wedding last Saturday, and you were 10 times cooler than that celebrant - and she was pretty good too!
I hope you and the family is well and thanks as well for the booklet you made for us!
Sammy and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you for the wonderful ceremony you gave us. Thanks to you, the preparation for our day was perfect. You made the paperwork a breeze and your suggestions on what to put in the ceremony worked out brilliantly. You put our minds at ease during what can be a stressful process!
The ceremony itself was fantastic and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome. The formalities were of course formal, but there was definitely an intimate vibe as well. You spoke beautifully throughout. We have had plenty of terrific comments, which has been great. I have already recommended you to my sister, and I understand you are conducting her ceremony next month.
I hope you get to join many other happy unions in the future.
Emma did a fantastic job as our celebrant. From our first meeting she was organised and helpful and made sure we never had to worry about any of the marriage ‘formalities’. With her friendly and professional manner we were always confident that she would do a great job on the day, but even then she surpassed our expectations. Emma was confident and engaging and it was clear that she had put a lot of thought and effort into making sure the ceremony ran smoothly. I wasn’t at all surprised when even our very experienced wedding photographer said that Emma was one of the best celebrants she had ever seen – and she has photographed hundreds of weddings! We feel very lucky to have had Emma as our celebrant and could not recommend her highly enough!Ben and Samantha The Boathouse, Canberra
We just wanted to write and say an enormous thank you for making the wedding really come together - you were perfect. A number of people commented on "our fantastic celebrant". I am not just saying that, it was a really very frequent comment. Mum and Dad were also just so happy with everything that you did. So I guess we really just cannot say thank you enough. I am so happy you were able to help us.

The ceremony was absolutely amazing, the way it was written, your delivery of it, your speaker system it was all unbelievable. Every single person said that it was the most beautiful, heart warming, emotional ceremony they had been to. They were all shocked at how it was our story from beginning to present and you captured it perfectly. From the first day we met you, we felt as if we had known you for ever, you wrote our story just as it was and put a comical twist to it that made the day! We couldn't have imagined it being any better! We are honoured that you wrote and told our story to our closest and most treasured family and friends on our very special day.
We can't say thank you enough for your time and effort that you put into our ceremony, it was more than we could have imagined it to be!
Wayne was very emotional for the entire night, I think he was a little overwhelmed with the whole thing, it was just beautiful.
We have a few friends that are engaged so I will definitely be telling them to ring you!!
Thanks to Emma, our ceremony was exactly what we had hoped for; relaxed, warm, fun... and legal.
In our meetings leading up to the big day Emma took the time to get to know us and, as neither of us had been married before, she was great in explaining the entire process as well as answer any questions we had.
Not only did Emma come with lots of ideas and experience, she made sure the tone of the ceremony suited our theme for the rest of the day – tributes to love, laughter, our family and our friends. Most importantly, Emma allowed us to create a ceremony that was, simply put, us.
When the weather turned on us, the microphone gave up and even as the relatives swarmed in for close ups, Emma’s professionalism and quick thinking kept us all on track. Our wedding day was perfect and we owe a big part of this to our amazing celebrant.
