Questions and Answers

Can we write our own vows?

Carla Davern

Of course! And you need a little help, getting them right, just ask. That's what you have me for!

Do we have to?

Carla Davern

No... You should see all my options! I have a large selection of all different types and I am sure there will be something that suits your personality and you can even mix and match different ones if you prefer.

How long will the ceremony go for?

Carla Davern

I always ask that you budget for about 30 minutes, from the time we first see brides on her way down the aisle, until the time when the bride and groom are making their exit down the aisle. Most ceremonies will fit perfectly into that time frame.

What will you wear?

Carla Davern

I always make every effort to co-ordinate as best I can to your bridal colours and styles, so tell me what colours your bridesmaids are wearing, what flowers you will carry, and the theme of your wedding, so I can fit in as best I can.

Should I be late?

Carla Davern

No. Think of your guests. Treat them with respect. Think of your guests. Treat them with respect. Think of your groom, he's waiting for you. Think of your schedule for the day. You'll probably run out of time for your photos, if you are late. If you are worried about guests arriving late, invite them 15 minutes, before you plan to arrive.

Carla is amazing! From the initial meeting to discuss our ideas, writing vows, through to the ceremony itself everything ran perfectly smoothly. Carla is a fantastic communicator, so any problems or questions that we had were always answered promptly! It was effortless! On the day Carla was ahead of schedule, impeccably presented and very reassuring - which was a huge help. Afterwards, all of our guests raved about how fantastic Carla and the ceremony was! We would recommend Carla to any couple who are getting married! Fantastic! Thanks again Carla for making our day so wonderful!

Carla did such an amazing job as our celebrant! Her skills as an entertainer are definitely an advantage, she had us and our guests both in tears and stitches during our ceremony (she even had a tissue ready for me for when my tears started to flow). The ceremony went so smoothly due to Carla's professionalism and preparedness. The whole process was so easy from our first meeting with Carla, to preparing vows and our own personalised ceremony, to the final run on the day. It also helped that she was easy to contact and responded to any questions we had at any time in a speedy manner. She did a great job telling our story and making memories from our ceremony that we will remember and cherish for a lifetime! I cannot recommend Carla highly enough, do yourself a favour and book her in for your wedding right now!

We are eternally grateful to have found Carla as our marriage celebrant. I am a gay man from China. I had been looking for a way to get married with my then-boyfriend. Because same-sex marriage isn't recognized in my home country, we had to do it in a foreign places like Canada, Britain, Gibraltar, etc. We eventually decided to do it in Australia. I found Carla on Google Maps. She promptly replied to my inquiry email with affirmation. Then we started this long email thread to discuss all the details of the marriage, from official documentation to ceremony arrangements. Carla was very kind, professional, and patient throughout the process. It was so smooth that, we were able to settle everything with only email conversations. We just appeared on time at the venue and had a perfect wedding. It's hard to believe that we just met each other moments ago!

We cannot thank Carla enough for being our celebrant. She was wonderful to work with not only on the day but for the lead up & post wedding. Her personality creates a great setting for the ceremony. She was amazing! Highly recommend her

We were so happy to have Carla as our celebrant for our wedding! Carla is so kind and reassuring, which I definitely needed as I was stressing over all the small details, but you can definitely trust her to make sure everything runs smoothly. Carla provided very clear and prompt communication during the planning process. We were supplied with with some past vows for inspiration for our own, and an example of a past ceremony so we had an idea of how our ceremony would run. Her bubbly and friendly personality shows in her work and provided such a nice atmosphere for our wedding. It was a very positive experience with Carla, we definitely recommend her service.

Carla was laid back and fun from the first conversation with her. She helped us to organise the ceremony and she kept our small park wedding cute, simple, quirky, and fun, which is exactly what we wanted. She's been friendly and professional in all of our interactions and Shane and I are really happy we had Carla at our wedding and as our celebrant. Thank you again, Carissa and Shane

Carla was a fantastic celebrant. The ceremony was everything we hoped for-upbeat, fun and was good timing (AKA not too long). Carla has a vibrant personality and we saw this at the ceremony and also in all of our interactions. She spoke to everyone in the bridal party which helped everybody feel more comfortable. And looked stunning as well!

Thank you Carla for being our celebrant, absolutely amazing from the time of booking right through to our special day. Very charismatic, bubbly, warming and professional. Our wedding location wasnt the easiest with a clifftop at Sunset, but you made it all a breeze, from set up off wedding signing table, organising the guests to stand in one area, the communication between yourself and us was top and so efficient with detail and preparation of wedding vowels and outline of ceremony. You matched our ceremony perfectly. Thank you once again. xxx

Carla made the day absolutely magical. She was professional, a joy to deal with in the lead up, and took the time to understand the kind of ceremony we wanted. She helped create a really relaxing and infinitely joyous day. Thank you Carla for making the day so special :)

Carla was so great from the moment we originally contacted her, all the way through till the end. From making sure the day is exactly what we want to suggesting ways to do certain things so that the ceremony becomes special and unforgettable. Carla did an amazing job with our ceremony and made sure the process was easy, her communication was always clear and prompt. We are so happy we chose Carla to marry us! Thank you!

We were unlucky enough to have to have heavy rain on our wedding day, but Carla and her team at Love Sick Wedding went above and beyond to make our day happen. We have no words to express our gratitude to this amazing team. They didn't complain about the weather at all. The guests were commending them on how they ran the ceremony, their energy and how they made the event fun for all of us. From our initial conversation with Carla, they were very easy to work with and very flexible, and supportive. We highly recommend Carla as a celebrant and Love Sick Weddings.

Carla is the most positive, supportive & uplifting celebrant and is beautiful inside and out! She truly loves what she does and it shows in her smile :)

Thank you Carla for being the one to 'marry' us 🙂. You will always hold a special place in my heart for all you did from the first time we spoke through to our wedding day. Although you too were going through major upheaval in your life with all that Covid-19 had done to us all, you were always there for me full of optimism and encouragement. We were so lucky to have such a beautiful person as part of this most special part of our journey. Our wedding plans went through so many changes with government changing restrictions every couple of days and it was all so stressful but you remained positive and encouraged us to 'do it' We are so glad we did! You are amazing!
