Testimonials

What my clients say.

 

 
 
I want to thank you for doing the most fabulous job, making both of us and our guests feel so relaxed, the ceremony fun but meaningful and so very very special.

You were absolutely perfect and I really enjoyed myself, despite everyone knowing I’m called a cling clang (never spelt that before)! It continued to be a very special day, the weather held out and we were all warm enough till dusk, then we moved to the mill. Dinner and bush dance was a success, followed by wild moves on the dance floor till 4.30am! Then back to a very cold tent! Dress survived, despite being very dirty and I just survived another party day Sunday, although did hide in the house snoozing for a few hours.

If you are ever over in Clifton Hill I’d love to take you for coffee, but if I don’t see you soon, continue being marvellous at what you do and all the best for the future.

We were lucky to have Jason conduct the ceremony we held in 2007 to celebrate the birth of our twins.
Jason is the total professional. He meticulously planned the event to ensure all details were covered off and then delivered it in a professional and fun manner.

We would not hesitate to recommend Jason for any ceremony. Should we be able to get married in the future Jason will be the man who conducts the ceremony. We would not consider anyone else.

We both wanted to offer our sincerest thanks for you being a part of our wedding.

We were amazed at how much you picked up about us from our few meetings. The ceremony and what you had to say were both beautiful. We don’t think it could have been done any better - it couldn’t have been more us.

We’re sure you’ll laugh to hear that the father of the groom started his speech with ‘Kids, let me tell you the story of how I met your Mother.’

Anyway, we’re now 4 months and 30 days in to married life and it is going well - very well in fact, not sure what all the business is about the first 12 months being the hardest, if thats the case we’re going to have a very blessed life :) Thank you again so much, you really helped make our day great.

Thank you so very much for being part of such a special day in our lives. We loved having you as our celebrant. You made the whole process easy and fun. When the day came it was so reassuring knowing you had prepared us for everything and had the whole she-bang under control.

I remember after walking down the aisle and feeling slightly petrified you just quietly said to take a deep breath - after that our short, but very sweet, ceremony was lovely and enjoyed by everyone, including us. So many people have commented on how the ceremony was very “us” which is exactly what we were after.

We really appreciate everything you did to make the start of our marriage so magical.

Thank you.. thank you, thank you, thank you… and thank you - from the bottom of my heart - for being the most amazing celebrant we could have dreamed of.

You kept to your word, and looked after us both and helped make the evening one of the most memorable moments of our lives.

I know I personally entered into the planning with a fair amount of trepidation, as the thought of being the centre of attention scared the daylights out of me… and I’m not good at playing the “hostess with the most-ess”… but you eased us into the evening so beautifully and were just brililant.

I feel terrible that I didn’t get to say a proper goodbye and express my deepest thanks to you (didn’t expect everyone to want to talk to me).

I was thinking about Essendon and putting the positive vibes out there for them for the whole night! Miguel ended up making a surprise booking for a hotel (naww!!) for the evening, and I accosted some poor interstate ‘dons supporters in the elevator to find out if they’d won… (I think they thought I was weird!)

Miguel is pretty handy with words, I just let passion be my guide…. so we are happy to spread the love right across the internet (and will definitely be doing so)…. but if there are specific sites that are held within high regard in the community please let me know!

Thank you again (though this barely seems enough to express how truly wonderful you are!)

So, what happens now?

Kidding… We are back from two very enjoyable days in Daylesford! Thank you so much for marrying us, we really found the perfect person - from the beginning you knew exactly what we wanted and we had confidence in you looking after us right up to the day!

You made the process so easy for us - from answering quick questions early, being very clear about what you needed from us and what we would need to do on the day.

You were seriously the best wedding-related person we dealt with during the entire organising process and we are so lucky that our friends Pat and Russell recommended you! Mac even commented that we were so comfortable around you that it felt like you were one of the guests!!

Wow, that turned into a near essay… sorry about that, you’ve probably heard it many times before! Please thank your partner again for letting you marry us on your anniversary! Hope Kylie was fun! (You were going to Kylie, right?! Or did I make that up?)
— Chelsea & Mac
 
 

 
 
We don’t know where to start other than to say thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Our wedding day was without a doubt the happiest day of our lives and we need to thank the two of you, as you both played such a big role in making
sure everything went as smoothly as possible.

What can we say? We were blown away. With neither of us having ever attended a non-religious ceremony, you far exceeded all of our expectations. Your words were heart felt and sincere and I can’t wait to see the video to re-live every moment of the ceremony.

We had so many people approach us at the reception to tell us what an amazing ceremony it was - so thank you! Look forward to catching up soon. xo

Two months have already passed since we got married! How time flies.

We have often thought about how wonderful our wedding day was and how fantastic the ceremony was.

You were simply awesome. From the preparation all the way through to the signing of the register. You somehow managed to keep us relaxed and having a look back at the photos confirms how much we enjoyed ourselves and this was in no small way due to you.

Thank you so much for all you did for us. You managed to capture us in your words and we will always remember that perfect moment.

Before we head off on our honeymoon we wanted to send you a quick email to thank you so sincerely for being part of our big day on Sunday and giving us such a beautiful ceremony.

You made us both feel so comfortable throughout the whole process and you were warm and genuine from the very beginning, how could we not feel like we were in good hands on such an important day of our lives.

Despite me (the bride) being stuck in road closure city traffic and the pressure being on you with strict timeframes (so sorry…) you managed to keep us both calm and our ceremony was intimate and so meaningful, exactly what we hoped for. It really was perfect!

We are truly honoured to have had you as our celebrant and will always remember you so fondly. Rich enjoyed the footy banter along the way too!

We sincerely wish you, Adrian and Ruben all the best for the future and we’ll be looking out for Ruben in a future Essendon footy squad :)

We will send you some photos when we get back from our honeymoon. Hoping you are having a great time in Sydney and that you didn’t miss your plane. xo
