“Barbara was amazing from day 1 of planning our wedding, we had no idea how to go about it and having Barbara there for support made the entire experience stress free and fun. The entire experience was so easy, and the day ran so smoothly, we were able to enjoy ourselves without stressing about anything. We got many comments about how lovely, friendly and funny our celebrant was! Thank you so much, Barbara, and we can’t wait to have our baby girls naming ceremony next year with you. Extremely recommended!” Caitlin G
