Elva was a fantastic addition to our wedding. Upon meeting Elva for the first time we were both at ease with her warm, authentic personality shining through. We explained to Elva that because of time constraints and tight schedule due to photography and restaurant times we needed a short ceremony. Elva assured us that no matter how long or short we need our ceremony to be we wouldn't lose the heartfelt, intimate experience we were hoping for. Elva delivered on her guarantee and then some. The ceremony was warm, heartfelt and personalised, just as we had wished for. There were tears of joy and moments of laughter all throughout and we had plenty of guests comment throughout the evening and in the days that followed about what a great choice we had made with Elva as our celebrant. Elva is the gold standard when it comes to wedding celebrants.


Hi Olivia and David It was an awesome and beautiful wedding and I am so happy you chose me to share your special day. I am very grateful and appreciate your very kind words. I wish you both and your family so much joy, happiness and abundance for your future. Take care. Elva

Everything went out smoothly, Elva, the celebrant provide a proper explanation in regards of their service provided and the procedure of marriage. Turns out everything is lovely and delicate for us. Thank you for hosting our wedding ceremony.

Elva was very reassuring and calming. We felt very confident she would perform a lovely ceremony, which she did. Elva was very organised and was able to provide options and ideas for our ceremony. Highly recommend her services.

I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us during this difficult time. With the current Brisbane lockdowns all our wedding plans changed very quickly. Unfortunately, the day we had originally planned had to be cancelled but you made sure that we could still get married regardless. You helped us find a place to hold our small ceremony and you made it an incredible day. Our children and our parents were there and that’s more than we could ever ask for. You were accommodating of our little family and the ceremony was small, intimate, and completely us. We are so incredibly thankful of you and the day that you helped give us yesterday. Your calm and welcoming demeanour helped us feel comfortable in such a public setting. We had the best day and have you to thank for that. We would recommend you to anyone we know.
