“My wife and I had a wonderful day with Silvana as our celebrant. Silvana made the planning and lead up to the wedding easy and fun. Nothing was ever a hassle and she was always quick to respond and help out. We loved the ceremony and the personal feel that Silvana gave it, we couldn’t have wished for it to be better.

“Silvana came very highly recommended from some friends at my work and she certainly didn't disappoint. Now my wife Stacey and I are the ones who can't recommend her highly enough. She was fantastic from start to finish. Approachable and easy-going during our first meeting. She provided some great recommendations for the ceremony and was completely flexible with our ideas. She was well-organised and the ceremony ran perfectly and was prompt with the legal paperwork. A five-star service all the way! Thank you again.” Ben
