TESTIMONIALS
Gillian and Shaun

Kate, when we first started planning our wedding I had you in mind. We wanted a classy, non-cliché ceremony which reflected us as a couple.

As soon as you left us following our first meeting, Shaun said “hired!”.

Every step of the planning was easy and not pressured. You understood our taste and us as a couple.

We had so many complements on our ceremony. On how it was so personal, yet professional. It was so heartfelt but not over the top with theatrics or gimmicks.

We have no hesitation in recommending you. You are obviously passionate and love what you do, which reflects in your work.

Thank you so much.

Gillian (and Shaun) Hodges

Planning a wedding is stressful regardless of how much or how little time you have to prepare. I spent months researching many celebrants online and was struggling to find someone with an easy-going attitude and a modern approach. We had been to so many weddings where friends had chosen celebrants that didn’t match their personalities, told cheesy jokes or spoke mostly about themselves and noticed how much this took away from the ceremony itself. We stumbled across Kate at the One Fine Day Wedding Fair about a year before our wedding and instantly had a feeling she would make a good for for us. We were so impressed after our first meeting and felt as though we’d been chatting to a friend over coffee rather than planning our ceremony.

The rest of the process was easy as Kate provided us with lots of resources and suggestions about what to include in our ceremony. Based on our chats Kate was able to put together our vows which were lighthearted and personal. Even on our wedding day she went that extra mile to make our friends and family feel comfortable. She was calming to be around at the rehearsal when I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed. We had so many compliments about Kate and how amazing she was at our ceremony. I cannot recommend her enough, she made a very daunting and stressful task easy and enjoyable.

Celebrant Kate with Isabelle and Nick

Kate was such a wonderful celebrant, she was extremely professional from our first encounter, leading through the whole wedding and even following up with us after we got back from our honeymoon. We couldn’t recommend a more thorough celebrant who can help make your day be exactly what it’s meant to be. – Nick and Isabelle

Bonne and Kevan

From the moment we met Kate we knew she would be perfect as our celebrant. Her warmth and relaxed approach made us feel like we had known her for years.

We worked together throughout the whole process. Her organisation skills patience regular communication and guidance was outstanding. Kate offered us as much or as little help as we needed.

A celebrant plays such an important part to a wedding and we were so lucky to have Kate be a part of ours. We received so many compliments about the ceremony and in particular the delivery from Kate.

We have and will continue to recommend Kate to anyone that we know is getting married.

Kate – thank you again for all your help support guidance and professionalism you brought to our day.

We think you’re awesome

Celebrant Kate with Richard and Terri

Thank you so much for your guidance and assistance on our special day.  From the day we met, you made a concerted effort to listen to our needs for the ceremony and connect with us.  It was this type of professionalism that generated the perfect balance on our Wedding night between the setting the scene for warmth/love in the room & the execution and control of the ceremony that we were pursuing.

Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay is that prior to meeting you I was somewhat ambivalent about the importance of the ceremony in the context of the night; on reflection, the ceremony was comfortably the most special part of our Wedding for me.  This would not have been possible without your wonderful guidance & ideas – particularly the examples of previously used vows, the intro’s for Bridesmaids/Groomsmen which were such a hit & the lighting of a candle by our friends which was a lovely touch. – Richard and Terri

I have to say a huge thank you from both Michael and I. From the moment we met you, you made all those pre-wedding jitters fade away. You provided us with such support and guidance that everything ran so easily and smoothly! We received such wonderful feedback from our guests about the way you interacted with them with such a polite and friendly manner, which can be difficult when you are trying to work with over 150 people.

Dear Kate

Thank you so much for going above and beyond to make our wedding day so special and memorable. Looking back the ceremony was our favourite part of the day because it was written just for us and filled with wonderful stories love and humour. Thank you too for agreeing to involve our friend Eleanor in the ceremony and for sharing it with her. We received so many comments on how personal this made the ceremony and it will certainly stay with us for a long time to come.

We so enjoyed working with you appreciated all your advice and feel like we made a wonderful friend in you too.

Celebrant Kate with Penny and Matt

Thank you for conducting a truly special and perfect ceremony for us last week. You make it so personal and intimate. We had multiple friends and family say that you were the best celebrant they had seen and we completely agree! You made it so seamless and easy for us and gave such a true and beautiful reflection of us as a couple. Thank you!  – Penny and Matt

Sophie and Alexander

Celebrant Kate with Amy and Steve

From the moment that I spoke with Kate at a Wedding Fair, I felt an instant connection to her. We really wanted someone with fresh ideas to officiate our ceremony. At our first meeting with Kate, she gave us some incredible ideas about elements to include in our ceremony that we felt would set our ceremony apart from others that we had seen before. Her suggestion to introduce the bridal party and groomsmen with a short speech highlighting the impact that they have played on our lives was a lovely surprise for each of them. Our guests have since commented on the lovely feel that our ceremony had and all of the special touches we had included, most of them suggested by Kate. We would highly recommend Kate for any couple who are looking for a young and vibrant celebrant. – Amy and Steve

CASS & TONY

Celebrant Kate with Kayla and Sam

We’d like to say a big thank you! We had the most perfect day, with a lot of thanks to your kind, funny and thoughtful self. All our guests commented on your professionalism and beautiful nature – we were so glad to have you there to celebrate with us!

We felt so at ease with you, and like I had said many times, I didn’t think I’d be able to say my vows because I’m usually such a blubbering mess at weddings! You made us feel so comfortable and natural, and everything about the day just felt so right.

Even before the day, your support and guidance made the process so easy and seamless… It was awesome to know that everything was under control! Weddings can be stressful, but not once did I ever need to stress about anything when it came to you, and your guidance in writing our ceremony was incredible. We are truly grateful! – Kayla and Sam

Phuong and Nimol

Celebrant Kate with Steph and Ben

From the first time Ben and I met you we honestly felt so relaxed and calm in your presence and new that you would understand what we wanted and create a ceremony that reflects us as a couple and you did not disappoint! We thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us and create a ceremony that was individual and unique.

Ben and I often struggle to talk openly and express our emotions even though on the day we both blubbering messes but you made us feel comfortable to do so.

We have received sooo many compliments after the ceremony. People have expressed what an amazing job you did and how much they enjoyed our ceremony! We have had people ask or your details for future engagements which is amazing as we will then get to catch up but it also demonstrates what a superb job you did.

So from Ben and I we would just like to say thank you so much we truly had the best time and the day all started with you acing it with our ceremony! – Steph and Ben

Shannon and Grant

Celebrant Kate with Bri and Taran

From the beginning we wanted a private wedding with no fuss. It was very important to us to find a celebrant who would help us realize our ideas and personalize our ceremony to make it as simple yet as lovely as possible. Once we met with Kate we knew we had found the perfect celebrant for us. She is very professional yet relaxed and friendly.

Kate clearly explained everything to us us and she sorted out all of our paperwork. She even passed on very helpful suggestions on the options we had in regards to how to decide what we’d like in our vows.

In the weeks leading up to the ceremony Kate always had time for us. She met with us to discuss how we’d like our ceremony to go and even visited our wedding location with us to do a walk through (which was really helpful as we were both nervous wrecks on the actual day).

We are both so happy to look back on our day knowing Kate did everything she could to ensure we had the perfect ceremony. We are so happy it was Kate who married us. We both highly recommend Kate to anyone looking for a friendly, knowledgeable and reliable celebrant who will craft the perfect ceremony for your big day. Thank you Kate!! – Bri and Taran

 

Tara and Irving

Celebrant Kate with Alex and Damien

Thank you so much for everything in the lead up to our wedding and the ceremony on the day, it was fantastic. You helped us both to remain calm and ease our nerves all the way through to signing the marriage certificate. We had so many compliments on our ceremony afterwards, and even had two engaged couples ask us for your details, which we were more than happy to pass on! The ceremony you wrote was so personal and so very us, you really captured our relationship and got a few laughs along the way, which we loved. We honestly couldn’t recommend you highly enough. Thank you again! – Alex and Damien
