Maria was our celebrant for our wedding recently and I am so grateful that she was. Initially I spoke to Maria over the phone, she was warm and friendly and really down to earth. Maria attended our home after our initial phone contact and provided us all of the information that we needed and listened to our story, and our preferences for our ceremony. Maria also offered us advice and assistance as needed, including with our wedding vowels. Maria is a beautiful person, calm and friendly. She will put any concerns you have at ease and is pleasant to deal with, approachable and readily available. Her celebrant fee is also very competitive. Highly recommend. Thank you Maria for being part of our special day.

Maria was great to work with from the initial contact through to the wedding day. Maria kept us in the loop about what we needed to do with gentle reminders as time progressed. We had two in-person meetings, one initial and the other the rehearsal on-site. We we're very lucky to get the whole wedding planning done in two months and hold the event in May, just before Victorian COVID-19 lockdown No3. On the wedding day, Maria was a champion, helping out where she could, getting me, the photographer and key people organised and running the event smoothly, even though we were a little late getting there from the pre-ceremony photographs in the park. We had additional requests to Maria and she accommodated us. I fully endorse and recommend Maria to run your wedding day ceremony as your celebrant. It was a please working with her, thanks Maria :-)

From the very beginning Maria made everything incredibly easy and was accommodating to our needs. We were so pleased with our experience. I would highly recommend!

Honestly cannot recommend Maria enough! From the start she was so helpful in guiding us through all the legal paperwork and helping us in planning our wedding She was so kind, friendly and so easy to work with! She took the time to listen to our stories, answer our questions and helped us create our dream ceremony! On the day she came and checked in with each of us, helped settle our nerves and checked in with the bridal party and family members doing readings. The ceremony was so beautiful and everything we could have wanted! Cannot recommend Maria highly enough 😍
