Just Book with Philippa!! I instantly got confirmation from Philippa, all the info via text and email. If I had any questions she was so easy to communicate with. Week before the big day, we met her and my instinct was right. She is warm, calm and very easy to talk to and organise things with. The type of service we chose for our ceremony we had so many guests (the picky ones) say how perfect/time/style and emotional the ceremony was. This was because of how Philippa lays it all out but still gives you the option to personalise bits throughout. I can not thank her enough for everything she did for us !

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Aww thank you so much for your beautiful and detailed review Anna and Trav, it means the world to me that you guys were happy and felt relaxed along the way. Such a special day and it was a pleasure for me to be your celebrant! Happiness always xo Philippa

Working with Philippa was a dream. Not only was she an incredible celebrant, but she also did all the heavy lifting when it came to completing the legal documentation. She is such a beautiful human who took the time to really get to know my husband and I to ensure she was able to capture the essence of our relationship on our special day. And she did so with great success! Philippa went above and beyond for us and we are so glad to have been able to share our day with her. If you are looking for an amazing celebrant for your wedding, I can not recommend philippa enough!

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Oh my gosh, special beyond special is how I will remember my time with you two and a wedding day unlike no other, so beautiful and authentic! Thank you for your super kind words, they mean so much to me. Happiness always xx Philippa

We are so very pleased that we found Philippa through her other glowing reviews and feedback on various sites and wedding forums. She absolutely lived up to and exceeded all our expectations. We really appreciated Philippa’s genuine caring and nurturing guidance throughout the whole process. From our very first contact, she was always extremely professional, calming and had great ideas and suggestions. Philippa always responds in a very timely fashion, making you feel valued and that your ceremony is a priority to her. Philippa is extremely thorough, detail focussed and guided us through the whole process step by step. She kept us calm, despite the tears, and spoke inspiring words that we will always remember. Philippa makes you feel valued and not just a ‘client’ but more like new friends. We would absolutely recommend Philippa as a marriage celebrant to anyone who wants a charming and memorable ceremony.

Philippa conducted our ceremony for us this Saturday 5th of June. From our very first phone call she made me feel at ease with the whole ceremony and was there for us through each step. The surprise wedding went down without a hitch and the way Philippa presented our ceremony and reading was beautiful! It’s a day we will never forget, we cannot thank you enough!

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Such a fabulous surprise under the disguise of a birthday party made it even more fun. It was a real pleasure to work with you both Adam and Demi…I honestly loved every second and I know you’re going to continue your amazing journey together with a life full of love, fun and happiness. With my love, Philippa 🤍💫

Philippa, you were the absolute best! I am so glad I stumbled across you and hired you to be our celebrant! you were so warm and welcoming! On my wedding day, 1 hour before I was due to walk down the aisle on the beach. A huge crowd of protesters showed up, Philippa handled this outstandingly! 10 minutes before I walked down the aisle the crowd of hundreds exited the beach. some protesters were quite rude but Philippa remained professional and calm! Philippa was so much fun, she really made our day go as smoothly and calmly as we had hoped. She moved through the ceremony so gracefully. I only wish I could replay this day 1 million times over to work along side Philippa all over again! I highly recommend. Thank you so much for making our day so perfect.

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Thank you so much Troy and Chloe what an amazing day it was, despite one or two initial hurdles! it all worked out beautifully, I am so glad we found each other for the journey and I really appreciate you taking the time to write a fantastic and heartfelt review for me. I wish you and Troy the very best always xxx

22 May 2021

We couldn’t be happier with our decision to have Philippa as our celebrant and would recommend her to everyone! Of all the wedding vendors we worked with, Philippa’s communication was outstanding, always replying promptly and very helpful. Our ceremony was so special, and we received so many compliments from our guests about our celebrant, even commenting that Philippa spoke as if she knew Tom and I personally, even though we had only met in person twice! Philippa handled all the paperwork side effortlessly, and prepared a ceremony which was perfect for us as a couple. Philippa was happy to adapt the ceremony as we wanted, including a witness lottery and gave plenty of vow examples for us to prepare a version that suited us. Thank you Philippa. We can’t wait to watch our ceremony again and again when we get the video back from our videographer!

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Laura and Tom, such beautiful words, I am thrilled you were happy with everything and thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review that means so much. It was a pleasure communicating with you both along the way and of course being there for you on your special day in Wirreanda Park, Buderim, we had plenty of laughs as well! xxx

15 May 2021

Philippa is an exceptional celebrant! She is soft and calm, resourceful and highly professional! She worked closely with me in the months leading up to the wedding and put my mind at ease time and time again. On top of this she knows Noosa like the back of her hand and this was something I just couldn't look past when I found her. In the lead up and at the actual ceremony she was so endearing to not only my husband and I but to all of pur guests who adored her to say the least. Pleease please please do yourself a favor and take Philippa as your celebrant. I cannot fault her. Thank you for for a splendid experience Philippa Holness, thank you for helping delver our unforgettable memories! XXXXXXX

Philippa was such a lovely celebrant who spent so much time with us, getting to know us and shaping our wedding ceremony to match our values. The guest commented on how lovely she spoke:). She was also really helpful for me with wedding prep, recommending other suppliers who were also amazing.

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

You are so very welcome and thank you for taking the time to write these kind words! Your day was so lovely wasn't it?! I had a lot of fun getting to know you and helping you to have the day you'd imagined in that stunning mountain view location! Thank you and I wish you happiness always! x

19 Mar 2021

Philippa was absolutely incredible from our first contact and through all the organising up until the day of our wedding. She was so helpful and made it so easy for us being from interstate. She made our day perfect! We chose an awkward spot to get married on a small beach but Philippa was more than happy to accommodate our wishes. We would recommend Philippa to anyone wanting to marry or elope in Noosa - she is experienced, professional and the perfect person to have as a celebrant. Thank you Philippa !

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Awww, thank you beyond words Elle and Matt. It was a beautiful experience being with you both and I’m so glad you had your elopement just as you had imagined and it was a great adventure to your secret location. Wishing you happiness always xx Philippa

14 Mar 2021

Philippa was amazing. From our first meeting with Philippa we knew we had found the right person to guide us on this exciting journey. Throughout the process, Philippa was warm, engaging and generous with her time. Philippa was kind enough to provide several recommendations for vendors, of which we chose three and could not have been happier with the outstanding work and service provided by all. We would highly recommend Philippa as a celebrant and guide. Philippa was kind enough to meet our schedule and run us through a rehearsal to calm our nerves and get the terrible jokes out of our and our bridal parties systems. The actual ceremony was beautifully delivered with a calm and loving grace. We received so many compliments on how the ceremony was performed and we intend on using Philippa when we renew our vowels. Thanks again Philippa you are amazing and made it all so easy for us, so we could enjoy the day and not stress about the legal side of things.

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness

Philippa made our wedding ceremony phenomenal! Her organising skills and knowledge of what to do made for a flawless wedding ceremony with so many guests complementing me for what an excellent celebrant that was by our side. Philippa truly made my nerves disappear and turned it into excitement and joy. From the bottom of my heart thank you Philippa.

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Oh my goodness thank you for your super kind words! I soo enjoyed meeting and working with you both Mr and Mrs T to make the day special and meaningful with a few laughs as well. Thank you for choosing me to by your side on your wedding day. Happy days forever! Philippa 💫🤍

20 Feb 2021

If you are looking for a celebrant for your special day, PHILIPPA HOLNESS is your lady!! We decided that we wanted a small intimate wedding and didn't really know where to start. When we first met with Philippa, we instantly knew that we wanted her to be our celebrant! In planning our wedding, Philippa was always very easy to communicate with and nothing was ever an issue. Including a very very last minute location change due to wet weather. On our wedding day our ceremony was just BEAUTIFUL! Very emotional, fun and completely personalised to us. We will have no hesitation in recommending PHILIPPA HOLNESS to our family and friends! Thank you again for making our day so special!

Sunshine Coast Celebrant Philippa Holness  

Oh what beautiful words! Thank you so very much for letting me know your day intimate and relaxed and just as you wanted it. I am so happy we found each other and I so enjoyed the journey with you two lovely people. I wish you both a life filled with happiness xx Philippa
