Janine made us feel so comfortable and gave us so many options so the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. My husbands children were so touched that we had a special moment with them during the ceremony, it was very important and bonded us as a family.

My Husband and I were married by Janine this past Sunday and were delighted with the service we received from her. Janine is genuine, kind and extremely helpful. She put our minds at ease knowing she had everything well organised, and that above all else she wanted us to have the best ceremony possible, tailoring it all to our personal needs. We couldn't have had a better outcome, I would definitely recommend Janine to family and friends.

Janine, thank you so much for ensuring we had the best day of our lives! We couldn't have asked for a more professional, warm and caring celebrant who tended to our every need! Everything was explained in its entirety and Janine ensured we understood every detail of the legal aspects and the days proceedings. So glad we did the rehearsal, it felt a lot more comfortable seeing how smoothly everything would go(which it did)! Would recommend your service to anyone! Again Janine, thankyou so much, we could not have picked a more lovely and caring celebrant!

Thank you so much Janine... You were recommended to me, Allot of our guests commented on your happy demeanour and how friendly you were (I did pass your number around !). I loved your gentle, soft approach. And thank you for taking the time to ask me about the wedding in other aspects and my colour etc. I did notice as did others that you colour coordinated your outfit to my colour scheme. You were very thorough in all paperwork and proceedings, nothing was a bother. I would recommend that couples have the rehearsal and subsequent meetings as they will not be left wondering what next or which way! Thank you also for organising all required paperwork, I love the list of people to contact re: changing my name, a good rescores! You went that little bit further and it was appreciated. THANK YOU

You could not ask for a more wonderful celebrant than Janine; her perfect blend of warmth, kind words, professionalism and natural ease are second-to-none and were hugely appreciated. We were absolutely thrilled by everything Janine did for us; she created a perfect ceremony and delivered it masterfully on the day. We can't thank her enough and similarly could not recommend her higher.

Janine was a great celebrant, we couldn't have asked for any better!! She was so friendly and warm and helpful! I love how she even colour coordinated her outfit so she wouldn't clash with the wedding colours, something I would never have thought of! Would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Janine met me and my finance twice before the ceremony, discussed every single point with us, she was putting her heart and soul in the preparation, even asked what colour dress I was going to wear to be matched ! :) She has great sense of humour , a very friendly, responsible, knowledgeable person-- a real professional. We were also in contact with her after the ceremony which she had conducted excellently, to ask about the arranging our Wedding Certificate as soon as possible, as I needed to leave to apply for my spouse visa ( we had an international marriage) , and Janine did her best to arrange all the papers quickly. She congratulated us on the 1st and 2nd anniversaries with beautiful cards. We would highly recommend her to couples. They would meet in her face a very devoted professional who does her work with excellence and is always eager to provide the best service ever.
