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.

Dear Kate,

On behalf of Aaron and I – we would like to thank-you very much for a sensational wedding ceremony, having you as our celebrant made the whole event come together – our friends and family have not stopped talking about how relaxed and comfortable our ceremony was. Thank you for all the phone calls, emails and catch-ups, it was great to work with someone who wanted to get to know Aaron and I so well.

We certainly wish you all the best for the future.

Kind Regards,

Michelle and Aaron

Our guests cannot stop talking about you and how you ran the most unreal – Ah-maze-ing ceremony ever! Honestly I could not have imagined it going any better. It was perfect in every way. You were SO onto it. I loved your attention to detail from where you stood, the speakers, the way you spoke (not too much, not too little) how you wrote a ceremony that made us feel that you completely got us…..All of it! You were professional and a perfect fit for us.

Kate thank you again – it was awesome!

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

Having a good celebrant was really important to us, and by meeting you we got far more than a good celebrant. We got a truly amazing one. From our first meeting you made us feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process, which was quite daunting to think about! You were amazing at helping us tell our story and created the most beautiful ceremony, it had the perfect mix of heartfelt beauty with a dash of laughter that just encapsulated us as a couple.

You have been complimented by many guests who absolutely loved the ceremony and everyone enjoyed how you introduced the bridal party within the ceremony, we had never seen this done before and it was just magical, having the little tear with my sisters is something I will never forget.

You were always professional and calm (even when the groom misplaced his vows for a moment!!) you kept your calm which, in turn, helped us to stay calm and turned it into quite the funny and memorable moment!

We are quite shy and were both slightly terrified of the ceremony, however after our rehearsal we were no longer terrified as we knew you were there to guide us along and help us if we forgot anything and I just knew it was going to be perfect. Having you come and see me before I walked down the aisle to let me know everyone was ready and lets do this was amazing at keeping my nerves at bay and let me be able to just relax and enjoy every moment of the ceremony as I knew you would keep things running smoothly.

We are so truly thankful to you for making our magical day as perfect as it could have possibly been and something we will never forget!!!

It can be really overwhelming to find the right person to make your wedding day special. If you’re looking for a celebrant look no further. Kate is a gem! Kate was always accommodating with regard to time and place for our meetings. She was so flexible and this really matters when you are working full time. She was also happy to read many many MANY drafts of our ceremony and provided advice (and editing!) above and beyond the call of duty. Honestly nothing fazes her.  Steve and I had a wonderful day. It was relaxed happy and full of love. We knew that Kate had everything under control and would guide us through the ceremony rain hail shine or tears! We have since had excellent feedback from friends and family about Kate’s manner on the day – calm friendly confident and not imposing. Shelley & Steve

Frank and I would like to thank Kate for the most amazing role she played in helping us celebrate our Surprise Wedding.

Not only did Kate help us with all the paperwork details and support but she was instrumental in making our day one of the best days of our lives. Nothing was too much trouble and when it came time to let the cat out of the bag with our friends

Kate’s good humour professionalism and ability added to the joy and love of our celebration.

Kate thank you so much you really do feel like a true friend and not just a celebrant, we are so very happy you were the person to marry us.

With most heartfelt sincerity

Finding the right celebrant was one of our biggest priorities when planning our wedding. We’re both natural easy going people and we wanted our ceremony to be relaxed simple and personal from writing our own vows to creating the ceremony to suit our personalities. The trouble was we struggled to find a celebrant who matched our description – no cliches, daggy jokes, weird outfits or theatrical performances… then we met Kate. Kate is relaxed friendly and very sincere. She’s well spoken and well dressed. She came to our house got to know us helped write our ceremony and delivered it perfectly. It was warm natural and most of all it matched us as a couple perfectly. So many of our guests commented on how perfect our celebrant was 🙂 Thanks Kate!

The dust is only now just beginning to settle after our wedding day and Cass & I wanted to thank you for the amazing ceremony you prepared with us.  Starting the process of planning a wedding ceremony was something that we initially both found somewhat difficult. This said your skillful support, understanding and patience helped to create a beautiful ceremony.  We felt it really reflected Cass and I as individuals coming together in marriage… We are so happy with how it all turned out and will cherish the memories forever. Thank you for carefully crafting our words and ideas into an amazing ceremony. We have also had several comments from our friends and family whom were very impressed with your service. CASS & TONY

We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the incredible ceremony that you presented to us our family and friends on our special day. Your manner professionalism and your way with words was just amazing. Compliments amongst the guests all round.  You brought out the love and you created that special atmosphere for the union of two people “sealing the deal”. You are just beyond a talented writer that makes everything you present come alive by  drawing people’s attention emotions of love and happiness and keeping them in-awe throughout the whole ceremony. I was totally in love with you even though I was marrying someone else (lol). Keep doing what you are doing because you do such an incredible job and you do it so well. Your passion for presenting our ceremony was certainly contagious. We really appreciate your interest and your enthusiasm  in getting to know us throughout the whole entire year and the way you went that extra mile to gain vibes to start writing truly about us and only us. You made it very unique and special to who we truly are as a couple and you brought that alive. So again

THANK YOU so much!
WE LOVE YOU KATE! – Mr and Mrs Koy –

Wow what can we say? Kate was absolutely amazing to work with. From the moment we met Kate she helped guide us through creating a truly amazing and unforgettable ceremony. Her suggestions around adding some personal touches and her calming and lovely nature meant that my husband and I were calm and prepared during a time which can be quite manic and stressful. She was reliable warm and very professional and both Grant and I could not recommend her highly enough for future couples planning a wedding. Our guests all commented about how well the ceremony was put together and presented and we have Kate to thank for that! 5 stars from us!

Hi Kate, Irving and I would like to thank you for the outstanding service you provided to us leading up to our wedding and the amazing ceremony you gave us on the day. Your efforts and professionalism made the ceremony not only special to both us and our guests, but made the day very relaxing. Everything worked so well, from your PA system to the little sheets you had our vows printed on. The small details contributed the ease of the day. We had an amazing wedding, thank you for being a part of it!

We selected Kate to be our Celebrant based on her web profile and a gut-feeling  not really expecting more of a Celebrant beyond performance of a necessary legal function. Kate blew our expectations out of the water. From our first encounter we realised how much a Celebrant could contribute to our Wedding beyond an official function. Kate has a beautiful presence and we both felt at ease with her immediately. She took the time to talk to us to listen and understand who we are as individuals a couple and a family and she crafted a ceremony which was true to us and which will remain in our memory for all the right reasons for a lifetime.

Thanks again for being such an important part of our day – as we say you will remain in our memory for a lifetime.
