“It was one of the most memorable and significant days in either of our lives.
It was executed in a way that was true to our personalities and included every aspect that was regarded as important to us.
It was emotional, magical and personal – IT WAS PERFECT!
Exactly how we would have done it even if it were done under more happier circumstances and we had more time to plan it.
We had many comments about how personally committed to our Ceremony you were and how that made it even more meaningful.
The part that touched on same-sex Marriage was also well received –
especially by family that it is more personally related to –
this is something we never would have thought of to consider.
Everyone loved you xxxx
Under difficult circumstances you created a meaningful, special Ceremony for us that will last in our families and our memories forever.
With exceptionally short notice, you guided us through the whole process bit by bit and then finally executed a beautifully written Ceremony as if you had prepared it over many months.
We are privileged to call you our friend as well as our Celebrant,
and the way our relationship with you shone through your execution of our Ceremony added to the intense emotion felt on the day and the personal touch we wanted in our service.
You are an amazing woman, friend and Celebrant and we are lucky to have been able to have you as the person that united us officially as one.
Thank you for everything Nicole xx”

“I just wanted to thank you again so much for marrying us on Sunday 17th May 2015.
It was probably the most fun day of our life!
It was AMAZING!!!
I can’t imagine it being any better.
It was so special and emotional and loving.
Our parents and family commented on how special the Ceremony was, and that your heartfelt emotion was evident during.
We were so nervous to begin with, and you were a huge help in calming our nerves,
and creating a Ceremony for us that we will never forget.
Your heartfelt emotion during our Ceremony was so appreciated by us both,
and also our parents and family.
They all told me how lovely you were, and loved how special and personal our ceremony was.
I think we had our grandparents, doing some magic on the day for us in regards to the weather.
I couldn’t imagine it being any better than it was!”

“I honestly cannot thank you enough for helping to make our special day so perfect.
The entire process was stress free and easy.
We felt comfortable and ourselves the entire time, especially on the day!
All the guests asked how long we had known you, they thought you delivered the ceremony with respect and honesty just like a lifelong friend would.
We would not change a thing if we had that day again.
Thanks!”

“Out of everyone that was involved in our Wedding
(and at the end of the day that is quite a few people)
Nicole was the most helpful and the most valuable.
When you say the word “Wedding” to anyone it usually follows with a crazy quote for price but we said to each other all along that Nicole had been the cheapest thing we had to pay for and she had such a huge part in our Wedding and really made us feel like everything was under control and that we didn’t have to worry about anything.
She also gave us lots of tips which helped so much.
We didn’t quote any other Celebrants because we knew when we first met Nicole that she would be great but we have heard quotes from friends and they are usually a little higher but not a lot.
The Groom’s parents were particularly impressed with how well you organized our guests.
Quite a few people commented on how well spoken and professional you were whilst keeping everything friendly and warm.
Nicole took all of the stress out of our ceremony she had everything planned perfectly and gently prompted us where needed so we were never left on our own or wondering what to do and in a time that is probably one of the most nerve racking of your life this is invaluable.
By the time we were ready to walk down the aisle Nicole had all of our guests seated and quiet, which took a huge amount of stress off our parents so that they were just left to enjoy the Ceremony.
Nicole’s style of reading is cool and calm and not dry and dull like you hear at so many ceremonies.
Nicole also helped us out a lot in the beginning stages of planning our Wedding by giving us lots of advice, tips and recommendations. When you are planning a Wedding outside of your home town like we were this was especially helpful when you don’t know what companies are around.
Nicole was fresh, professional and in control the whole time and we cannot thank her enough.”

“Nicole, we cannot thank you enough for everything that you did for us –
from initial contact (and us taking forever to be able to actually meet you) to our Wedding Day you were brilliant.
Answering all our questions and putting us at ease with everything was above and beyond all our expectations.
What you wrote for our son Jacob giving us away to each other was a very moving experience, for not just us, but our guests’ as well, and you for that matter.
We would not change anything for the world.
Thank you again.”

We saw you at a friend’s Wedding and they told us that you were fantastic.
They were spot on!
Thank you for the time and care you committed to helping us put together the perfect Wedding ceremony for who we are as a couple.
You showed us all of the options and then helped us tailor the day to suit us and what we believe about love and Marriage.
At the rehearsal and on the day you put all of our nerves at ease by being so calm and on the ball. Knowing we were in your incredibly capable hands made it so easy for us to focus on each other and the commitment we were making.
It truly is the most important part of the day and we couldn’t have done it without you!
We can’t thank you enough!!”

“Nicole thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony so amazing!
You provided us with everything we needed to create our perfect ceremony
from readings, vows, music and so many great personalized ideas.
You made us both feel so relaxed on our special day,
when I arrived at the same time as quite a heavy sun shower
you ran to my aid and calmed me immediately.
I am truly so grateful we found you and
had so many compliments from guests about how
beautiful, personal, welcoming and natural you were before,
during and after the ceremony.
Thank you for taking so much time and effort to ensure
our ceremony was so beautiful and relaxed just as we asked for.
Nicole you made so much effort to make everything perfect.
My Aunty said you were the best Celebrant she has seen,
she was very impressed with the entire Ceremony,
your professionalism, enthusiasm and beautiful natural nature.
My Mum said she loved the way you wanted to make the music perfect for the day,
by practicing what would work best at the rehearsal,
also your beautiful smile and so inclusive of everyone on the day.”

“Nicole we cannot thank you enough for being our Celebrant for our Wedding.
The Ceremony was perfect and exactly the way we wanted it
which was so relaxed with lots of giggles.
It was not too long and not too short it was the perfect amount of time.
From the moment we meet with you we knew
that you would be perfect for our Wedding.
You have a great sense of humor and very caring nature.
Your price was so reasonable considering how important
your job is to the memory of our day.
I will highly recommend you to everyone I know getting Married.
All of our guests said it was the best Ceremony they had attended.
My Sister in particular said that you were AMAZING.
They all loved how our Ceremony suited our relationship to a T.
Thanks so much and it was such a pleasure meeting you
and having you be a part of our special day.”

“We are thrilled with our decision to have Nicole marry us
at our surprise wedding on New Year’s Eve.
Nicole came highly recommended from several people and when we met her,
we realised why straight away.
She was the perfect mix of warmth and professionalism
and clearly has a great knowledge and passion for what she does.
Nicole made the process of preparing and personalising our ceremony
as simple as possible and was a great help with our decision to write our own vows.
She provided us with plenty of resources and made time to guide us when needed.
A real highlight was Nicole’s organisation.
I never had to chase anything up, she was always one step ahead –
exactly what a busy and stressed bride needs!
Our guests really enjoyed the ceremony and had great praise for Nicole.
She kept things brief and relaxed,
but still ensured it was the special and formal occasion that a wedding ceremony should be.
Thank you so very much Nicole!
Our wedding ceremony was relaxed and we tried to keep it fairly brief and personal to us.
We loved your warm but professional manner,
and this set the perfect tone for the ceremony.
Obviously it is a formal occasion but we didn’t want it to feel too serious or ‘stuffy’.
You were incredibly thorough and made the process as simple as could be.
I especially appreciated the ceremonies that you shared with us to help put ours together. Honestly, you couldn’t have been more helpful!
Everyone said what a perfect ceremony it was – relatively brief and very personal to us.
People told us that it was exactly what they would choose.
My mum in particular thought you were just wonderful and facilitated things beautifully.
Very positive comments all round!
We didn’t speak to any other celebrants as you had come highly recommended
and we were very happy when we first met you.
I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of cost, but I didn’t find your fee unreasonable –
there was quite a bit involved behind the scenes and we appreciate that.

Dear Nicole,
“We would like to thank you for making our day as special as it was.
You knew exactly what we wanted and it really felt like you went above and beyond to make our ceremony as individual and touching as it was.
As this was a very intimate moment for me in particular not having my Dad there, you made it truly touching and the input you made with our verses you chose for our tribute balloon ceremony was so beautiful.
Thank you so much!
We were so happy with our ceremony, it was exactly what we had hoped for.
Very professional, yet relaxed at the same time.
We managed to laugh…and cry!
It was just touching and beautiful and the way you put so much effort
into the wording was amazing.
I honestly was 100% happy and wouldn’t change a thing.
My guests said how beautiful and touching the ceremony was too.”
