Elena is a thorough, creative and conscientious marriage celebrant. In our ceremony, she ensured that everything went smoothly and on point. Our friends and family commented on how fantastic the ceremony was, including terms such as: entertaining, fun, emotional, unique and very special. This, however, took a lot of preparation. Elena took us through the journey of the marriage celebration, explaining the law and items and sections of the ceremony in detail. She provided creative suggestions (such as music, readings, rituals), while ensuring to accommodate our personal requests and vision of the event. She was patient and flexible in working through difficult interstate schedules and a condensed wedding timeline. At all times Elena was very professional and amicable, making us feel comfortable. She took time to meet with us for a rehearsal and was well equipped to ensure the ceremony was audible and visible to everyone. We really felt we could leave her aspects of the ceremony in her hands, confident that she would take care of it with attention to detail. You know when you recap your wedding day in your head and think 'oh maybe I could have done something here or there...' Our memories of our ceremony are the most special and heart-warming part of our wedding day and without hesitation this warm feeling we have for our wedding ceremony has much to do with the trust we put in Elena. And we wouldn't change any part of it! We highly recommend Elena not only for her demonstrated abilities as a celebrant but for her upbeat energy, which is embodied through all stages of the ceremony and its preparation. Thank you very much, Elena! :)

WOW.... where do I start? the moment we contacted Elena we knew she was the one to marry us. The time, effort and passion she puts into her ceremony is above what is usually expected. she went above and beyond our expectations and really made our wedding day complete. The detail that went into our ceremony was so touching and really felt like we were the only people in the world. She told our EPIC love story and it was just perfect. We are so happy with how Elena made us feel and the impact she had on our wedding day.

From the moment we met Elena, I knew she was the one, just as I knew my groom was the one. Elena made our special wedding day just divine! Her unique style, grace, charisma really captured us. Elena made the whole process so very easy demonstrating a balance of compassion, humour, and professionalism. We could not have chosen anyone better for the job and we’d highly rate Elena to everybody – 11 out of 10!!

Elena was an absolute delight to deal with from the very beginning. She is not only very loving, friendly and warm but very professional to deal with and she made the whole process super easy. We really want to thank her for making our day very special by sharing my (Jassi) and my husband's (Kamal) feelings for each other in the wonderful ceremony she wrote. She made us feel so comfortable and welcomed our whole family which made everyone feel special. We are so glad that we chose her to be our celebrant and we would recommend using Elena to make your marriage day perfect. Thank you so much again Elena for making our day perfect! Jassi

We highly recommend Elena. We were very impressed with Elena’s ideas and creativity. She was approachable, readily available and she easily understood what we wanted. Elena orchestrated a very engaging wedding ceremony – it struck all the right notes of being personal, warm and fun. Elena was absolutely fabulous.
