Steven was absolutely amazing from start to finish. His personable approach, great service and diligence visiting us prior to the wedding and ensuring all the legalities were in order was second to none. Steven's love, care and support running up to the big day was extremely helpful and to be honest he went above and beyond. His planning, coordination and preparation ,meant that we were full prepared and were able to enjoy the wedding we had always hoped for. Steven's personality, warmth and natural humour makes you feel like you've known him forever and quite easily mistaken for an extension of the family. Simply wonderful. 5 Stars and more!!

Thank you Paul. It was such a pleasure to conduct your ceremony. The ceremony was so beautiful and I loved hearing your private vows to each other you nearly made me cry also, so beautiful! It was my absolute pleasure to go above and beyond for you both and this is a ceremony I will definitely be cherished in my mind forever. Look forward to staying in touch and seeing your beautiful journey unfold with many many happy years ahead!

Steve was wonderful for our big day! Very professional, incorporating the right amount of humour during the ceremony. It started raining as soon as I stepped out of the car for our garden wedding. Steve was able to get through everything quick enough without feeling too rushed, before the skies really opened up once the ceremony was done. Steve was great to catch up with in the lead up and planning stages which made things less stressful for us. Due to COVID we also changed our locations many times and Steve was flexible and happy to go with the flow to get us married on the day we wanted, no matter where he had to go to do so. Thanks Steve! Highly recommended from The Haywards!

Thank you Haywards, you are such a beautiful couple! It was my pleasure to help accommodate the change of dates and location through the restriction that were in place this year and make everything as easy as possible for you both. There was a little bit of rain but it added to the character of your very special day. I wish you both all the very best and an amazing future on your journey together.

Steve is a fantastic emerging celebrant with a strong MC background and great presence. Steve describes himself as “someone who loves love” and this really shines through. He was so thrilled to be a part of our day and brought a beautiful warmth to our ceremony. Steve was fantastic to deal with in the lead up to the day - he was quick to respond to questions, came to us in person when needed, responded positively to our ceremony personalisations, and asked plenty of questions to make sure he was across the detail. I’d recommend Steve for couples that want a fairly traditional, straight forward ceremony with a warm, personable and charming officiant! We were really pleased to share our day with Steve and would highly recommend him for others :)

It was a pleasure to have Steven marry Stephen and I! We had so much fun throughout the preparation and Steven took a lot of stress off our shoulders with all the marriage paperwork. Steven was funny and down to Earth and would recommend to our family and friends to be wed. Top stuff! Thanks so much Steve!

Weddings By Steve Veenstra  

You are both more than welcome! Such a wonderful fun ceremony! So much love and so many laughs. I wish you both all the very best on your journey together as husband and wife!

As an old friend of mine, I was naturally enticed to ask Steve to marry us. Nonetheless, Steve exceeded all expectations from start to finish. His professionalism coupled with his laid back funny and friendly nature, meant he was able to adopt our style. Looking back, our wedding seemed perfect, and Steve played a major role in ensuring everything aspect was ticked off, but with a calm charismatic and relaxed vibe. Throughout the leadup we connected with Steve to the point that he was not only our celebrant, but remained on as a guest at our reception. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steve to others. Shona

Weddings By Steve Veenstra
