Gillian was wonderful! She met up with us a couple of times and got to know us well before she wrote the ceremony. She had beautiful mannerisms and on the day she just helped make it flow so well. She accommodated well for our plans and even with not having a rehearsal- everything still worked out beautifully! Definitely recommend this wonderful woman :)

Gillian is a wonderful celebrant. We wanted someone who was very organised, and kept everything on time, running smoothly, and would help us create a lovely ceremony. We were not disappointed. Gillian has impeccable taste and is impeccably organised. She performed our ceremony beautifully, and was very well presented. Many of our friends and family commented on how well she spoke. She was never phased when we made changes, and didn't bat an eye when we decided to include our Labrador as a part of our ceremony :) She also has excellent equipment, and the sound for our music and ceremony was of great quality. Gillian helped us with all the required paperwork, and submitted our details to BDM promptly after our wedding. She was a wonderful asset to our wedding day, and would come highly recommended form us and our wedding guests!

Dear Cassie and Todd. Your wedding day at beautiful Carrick Hill was such a marvellous occasion, full of laughter, love and "difference." I felt extremely lucky to be a part of it and I think that your Labrador almost stole the show!! To become acquainted with your families on the day was special and then to have the privilege of performing your Grandmother's Celebration of Life in the following months was extraodinarily moving. I was so glad to have met her at your wedding. Thank you for your kind sentiments. I deeply appreciate them

Gillian is a warm and elegant lady, Bourne and I got to know Gillian with the referral of our wedding planner. It was lucky to have Gillian as our marriage celebrant and we could not have such an unforgettable big day without her help and assistance! Gillian was our MC for that day as well and she did very well! Bourne and I are very appreciated for her work, and we would love to recommend her to our friends in the future!

Ceremonies Just for You - Gillian Potter Civil Celebrant  

Thank you Aimee for your very kind words and I have to say that not only was it a gorgeous wedding at sunset but it was an absolute delight getting to know you and Bourne. I am so pleased that I was given the opportunity to be there for you as your Marriage Celebrant. It's times like this that I realise just how much I love my job. Best wishes to you both! Gillian

Gillian was beyond amazing for our wedding day. She made it so easy and was amazing though out the whole process. Even down to answering my texts at 10 pm at night ;-) I would highly recommend her. Thanks Gillian for being exactly what we needed :-)

Gillian was amazing to work with. We can recommend her work very highly. She was professional, well presented and an overall lovely lady. Gillian met with Keith and I several times to discuss with us what we wanted for our ceremony and remained in contact during the lead up to our special day. Gillian made us feel very comfortable around her and made it stress free. Gillian listened to our ideas, gave advice and assisted us to write our vows, helped us submit all the legal paperwork for us after the wedding. She created the perfect ceremony for us with the beautiful words that were written. Due to all the uncertainties of 2020, we made the decision to change our wedding date. Gillian was very accommodating with this date change and it didn't bother her to do so. Everyone commented how wonderful the ceremony was. Thank you Gillian for everything.

For me, that's what truly matters. All the vey best.

Gillian was just fantastic for our wedding! She is the perfect balance of funny, personal, warm and professional. She was organised, on time, looked great and was happy to include all of the little things we were after to make our wedding truly about us. After our wedding, several of our guests commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to - not too long, not too serious, but also not trying too hard to be funny. Thank you Gillian!! It was a pleasure working with you!

And it was such a pleasure working with you too! I am particularly delighted by your guests' feedback because it has made your day memorable for all the right reasons and given me a sense of great pride that we achieved this. A wonderful outcome Alex and I'm so delighted that you were very happy at the end of the day. Good luck to you both.

Gill is amazing! As a couple who booked their wedding well in advance of the pandemic only to find ourselves in the middle of it we couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. Gill was happy to roll with the punches so to speak as the months and weeks leading up to our wedding kept things changing on almost a daily basis including Adelaide's 6 day lockdown occurring the week before the wedding. On the day Gill arrived early and did a fantastic job of making sure the ceremony ran smoothly. We were so thankful go have come across Gill and we honestly believe that we had the best celebrant in Adelaide to help us through our pandemic wedding.

Daniel, what a marvellous day it turned out to be particularly with the little bits of innovation that became necessary on the day; it added to the uniqueness and fun I think. The COVID challenges were painful but we were a great team and pulled it together so beautifully in the end. It was such a pleasure working with you and you are a great organiser!! That was a blessing for me. Thank you

We cannot thank Gillian enough for the thought and care she put into making our ceremony truely representative of how we love each other. Her poise, eloquence and sense of humour helped to create an unique atmosphere enjoyed by all.

15 Dec 2016

Gillian was an exceptional marriage celebrant. She answered our emails and phone calls promptly, answering any questions and queries we had, which put our minds at ease from the very get-go. Gillian clearly described her services to us and the ways in which we could tailor our ceremony to suit our personalities and individual preferences. Gillian is flexible in her approach and offers excellent advice if one is ever unsure. Gillian is elegantly presented, professional in her demeanor and speaks clearly and beautifully. Gillian took care of all legal paperwork for us, which gave us peace of mind and took away the worry in regards to this process. Gillian also presented us with a beautiful copy of our vows to cherish. We were ever so happy with Gillian and would highly recommend her to other couples.
