We found Maria after our celebrant cancelled 2 weeks before the big day, she was our saving grace! Incredibly flexible, patient, professional and reliable. 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!

Am incredibly grateful for your review Tara, thank you! It was a pleasure being of service in my role as celebrant to such a happy, loving and devoted couple. I still recall yours and Jim's vows which were so deeply heartfelt, humorous and genuine.

Thank you so much Melissa. Your day was so perfect and happy, so many wonderful memories filled with joy and love. I was honoured to be a part of it!

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 :-)

We gave the one hour play list to Maria and she sourced and played the music for us, with special requests that weren't on Spotify.

We used Maria to be our Celebrant for our wedding last November. Maria did a fantastic job, made the day really relaxing and enjoyable. The lead up to the event was very personal. We cant fault her professionalism. Thanks for your support.

We absolutely loved everything about the ceremony and the reading planned & organised by Maria. Maria captured exactly what we wanted to say and was such an amazing help with our personal vows too. Would highly recommend her services for anyone wanting a personal and extremely helpful celebrant. We loved everything about her services & reading.

Maria helped us create the fun, relaxed and meaningful ceremony that we dreamed of. She was very organised and made the process simple and easy to manage. Maria has a warm and genuinely caring nature, spoke clearly, fluently and in a tone that was perfect for a wedding.

Maria was the only real contender we had for being our celebrant. She was friendly and approachable and easy to communicate with. She was reliable and did a lot for us with helping us get organised and giving us ideas for the vows. She was excellent, very professional, and we couldn't have asked for more. Maria was perfect!
