“Maria Padbury was our celebrant for our wedding, and I am so grateful that she was! She was warm, friendly, and really down to earth. She attended our home after our initial phone contact and provided us with all of the information that we needed. She listened to our story and our preferences for our ceremony.

Maria was incredible. The support provided was amazing and the development and delivery of the service held true to us as a a couple. No question was too big or small and no edit was too much. Maria made the process of finding the right readings simple by finding so many that matched us. Even the provided Vows felt like our own Would 100% recommend Maria to anyone.

Maria was our celebrant and MC for our wedding. From the first meeting to the last minute on the night Maria was wonderfully organised, professional and so welcoming in her approach to everything. She covered all steps in the marriage process and really listened to our stories and what was important to us. During the wedding she beautifully spoke about some cultural customs and got the party started on the dance floor. She was such an integral part of our special day and couldn't of asked for any more. Thank you so much Yoshi and Kaitlyn

From the moment we met, we grew to adore Maria’s warm and gentle nature. We felt comfortable in her presence and knew immediately we were in capable hands. Throughout our planning, she was always professional and patient. She was able to accommodate our special requests which helped made our ceremony meaningful and special. Our civil ceremony was beautiful Yu and intimate and we have Maria to thank for that. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you again Maria from the bottom of our hearts. Adrian and Trinh
