Elena was an absolute pleasure to work with to make our special day come to life! Her attention to detail is second to none and she captured our stories perfectly. Elena went above and beyond our expectation and my wife and I could not recommend her enough as a celebrant. All of our guests still rave on about how brilliantly she conducted our ceremony and proceedings. Thank you hugely Elena! I give her 5/5 stars and I would give 10 if I could!

Elena went above and beyond to ensure our ceremony was unique and perfect for us. She shared our story so beautifully with our friends and family, we felt like Elena had been a great friend for a long time. Elena communicated with us from the very beginning and right up until our big day, letting us know the process and exactly what she needed from us. We’d recommend Elena to anyone looking for an enthusiastic, thoughtful and organised celebrant.

Elena was amazing, making the whole marriage process incredibly easy. She was prompt to reply when I contacted her, and made me feel so comfortable after our first phone call. After, my now-husband & I, met Elena we both agreed that she was the perfect person to marry us. She was thorough and explained all of our options for our ceremony, listened to what we wanted and what we thought was important for our day... then she made magic happen. Our ceremony was beautiful, and that’s all thanks to her. She captured our lives and our love in the most beautiful way, and then shared this with our guests. There was laughter, tears & everything in between, she had our entire guest list, 150 people, absolutely captivated. Not only with her amazing words, but she was engaging and presented our love in a way that I am eternally grateful for.

We were so happy with the ceremony Elena delivered for us. Elena invested a significant amount of time to create a ceremony that represented us, our relationship and how we wanted our ceremony to be. Elena went above and beyond to incorporate personal touches in our ceremony. The ceremony was better than we ever could have dreamed and all our family and friends commented on the how lovely and personalised the service was. We would highly recommend Elena to other couples getting married.

We had the most wonderful day and were so happy with the ceremony; Elena performed it beautifully! Throughout the process, Elena was easy to communicate with and we felt comfortable from the beginning. We really valued Elena's creativity, honesty, openness to our suggestions and professionalism – even in the heat! Personalised touches such as the vow cards were perfect, and we can't not mention your amazing outfits and style! Thank you so much for making our ceremony so special.
