Many thanks to all the couples who have allowed me to pop their kind words on to my website.

They have also generously allowed me to use one of their stunning photos (thank you) of their happy day.

Wendy you were absolutely fantastic the way you helped us organise and prepare everything well before the wedding. You gave us so much great advice and so many ideas. It was great how at the rehearsal you walked us through everything we needed to know to ensure our wedding day was perfect. All our guests commented on how great and well spoken you were, which we also totally agree with. All round you were extremely professional, well organised, personable and a great person to have to guide us through the most important part of our day. Highly recommended!!!

From the moment we read your profile on your website, I knew you were the celebrant we needed to make our wedding day special. This was confirmed as soon as you walked in our front door for our first meeting! When you first sent us a questionnaire, I thought “why does she need all this information”, but believe me, you turned all our rantings into the most beautiful ceremony ever. You completely got who we were, both individually and as a couple. You made our guests cry with her words, (and of course the bride and groom had a tear as well). I have had so many guests comment on how wonderful you were, and we would have no hesitation in recommending you for anyone’s special day.
Thanks Wendy, for sharing our special day.

Wendy, you were so easy to deal with, right from the first phone conversation we had through until our wedding day. You were bubbly, fun and professional and had a lot of great ideas and suggestions for our big day. I knew we were in good hands right from the start and although we didn’t get to meet you until the day before our wedding, you definitely put us at ease leading up to it. Thanks Wendy for being such an important part of our big day, we would highly recommend you to anyone!

It’s been a while now since our big day and we wanted to thank you so much for everything you did for us. The day ran so smoothly and many of our guests commented about how calm you were around the whole last-minute rain issue. We also had lots of comments about the ceremony and how personal it was and how you put everyone at ease – thank you so much! For us, you made our dream of a romantic, fun but meaningful ceremony a reality, we enjoyed every moment and can’t thank you enough!

We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day – after 22 years of courtship – unique, personalised and simply wonderful. We were daunted at the prospect of marriage and had put it off for many years. But when we eventually decided to take the plunge, we wanted our special day to reflect our values and our journey through life – which you did to perfection. Our ceremony was unique, enjoyable, funny and relaxed. You captured the essence of our relationship and beliefs, and way of life in an instant. You are incredibly experienced and professional, but exude a warmth and genuine kindness that made us feel right at home. Many guests complimented us on the ceremony especially your style and asked us if you were an old friend marrying us as she seemed to know us so well! And last but not least, you knew all the legalities for a couple who need a special certificate to be used in their home country. Amazing! We have no hesitation recommending you as a celebrant!

We absolutely loved you as our celebrant. You did an absolutely superb job of it – even though you took on our wedding at the very last minute. We were so lucky to have you. You took the time to listen to what we wanted, and took care to ensure the ceremony reflected us. We were after a celebrant who was relaxed, fun, not stuffy, but a bit quirky – and we got exactly what we wanted. Loads of people have commented to me after our wedding about how much they loved our celebrant. Thanks so much Wendy!

Wendy, you were so amazing in everything you did for us and we will always cherish our day with so many thanks to you. As we were living in Brisbane we were worried about how it would all work but you made it all so easy and were there every step of the way. You made our boring words into a masterpiece that had so many guests in tears(good tears) and laughter throughout the whole ceremony. We really can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us on our special day. Words can’t even explain how you are at what you do. Thankyou again Wendy from the bottom of my heart Xxx

Thank-you Wendy you were an amazing celebrant for our wedding.
Your personality fitted in perfectly with our families. You sure do offer unique, innovative, totally personalised ceremonies, designed with sensitivity, warmth, professionalism . . . and fun. You were very easy to deal with and were so organised. (As I had only just had a baby when I was first planning our wedding, I wasn’t the most organised!). You were a life saver.
I loved how you printed our vows out and made a little booklet for us afterwards with a picture of me and Andrews favourite image.
Thank you, we would highly recommend you!

You were so great to deal with, making us feel at ease from our very first conversation over Skype. You were positive and enthusiastic and encouraged and facilitated the creation of a ceremony which really reflected who we are as a couple and also incorporated the wider family. Everything ran smoothly and professionally Your help with organising our vows was invaluable as the words we exchanged were of great personal importance to us. Our ceremony was beautiful and meaningful, as so many of our guests commented. We would have no hesitation in recommending you Wendy!

You were a life saver for our wedding, jumping in at such short notice and then within a matter of days you had whipped our ceremony into shape, personalising it with all the information we could provide. It was exactly what we hoped for! During meetings, rehearsal and on the day, you were professional but with a great dose of fun and humour – very important to us. Our friends and family were so impressed with your delivery and we could not have been happier. Thanks so much Wendy!

You were awesome! You were bubbly and very personable when we first met and both of us got on with you from the start. You kept in contact the whole way through answering any questions we had, and you were always positive about everything. It was good to know we could always contact you. Even on the day everyone came up to us and said you were the perfect person for our day. You made our ceremony light, humorous and fun – everyone enjoyed the whole ceremony. Wendy, you were brilliant and we are both so glad we picked you. I will recommend you to everyone I know.

You were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Not knowing what we wanted -it wasn’t until we first meet with you that we became truly excited about the ceremony. You understood what getting married meant for us and helped us create a ceremony which reflected this. We have had many comments from guests about how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how US it was. On the day it was calming knowing that you had everything under control! We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a celebrant. Thank you again.

You were absolutely great. From the first meeting we were so happy with your professionalism and flexibility, particularly as we were planning a NZ wedding from Australia. What we really loved were your helpful resource books which really stepped us through the process and provided excellent examples of how to create a unique and personal wedding ceremony. On the day, our guests were totally blown away with the ceremony and at how lovely and personal it was and how great you were. This was extra special given that many of the guests had never been to a non-religious wedding ceremony. We would recommend you without hesitation to absolutely everyone. Thank you for creating such a magical ceremony for us!!!

Thank you for making our special day absolutely amazing. Even our first meeting with you was so relaxed that we felt like we were in the company of a very good friend. You captured the very connection between my husband and myself and allowed us to mould our ceremony to fit us. Always helpful, always smiling and always very professional. Thank you for spending our day with us, thank you for making it perfect x

You were an absolute pleasure to work with. Right from our first meeting you showed your flexibility and relaxed manner. And you were also great with our two girls ensuring they were a key part of our ceremony. You also brought that care through on the day, rolling with events as they unfolded. Bringing a good sense of humour.
As you know we left our marriage license in Auckland, and realised just before our meeting with you, two days before the wedding! It didn’t phase you at all and we were so grateful that you very calmly made a few phone calls to see if we could get it redone in Tauranga. Thankfully it fell into place and saved us a 5hr return trip.
Working with children is never easy and our 3yr flower girl didn’t cooperate on the day but you certainly made it flow regardless. Thank you so much for making our day relaxed and fun.

You put us at ease from our first meeting (over Skype) and tailored our ceremony to suit us perfectly. All your information helped us to write our own vows and we loved how you were so knowledgeable, reliable, professional . . . and humorous.

It was great having you attend our rehearsal so we could relax knowing exactly what we were doing on our special day. We had so many people tell us it was one of the best weddings they have attended and they absolutely loved the ceremony. Thanks Wendy for helping make our day so special.
