Dear Catherine We want to thank you for your pivotal role in what was a beautiful ceremony at South Durras. From the moment we met you we knew that you were the right person to marry us. You really put us at ease with your calm and professional approach leading up to the big day. And then on the day itself you delivered our ceremony with the perfect combination of sincerity, warmth and respect ... plus just the right amount of humour! Our guests all commented on what an absolutely beautiful ceremony we had, so thank you for being an integral part of our special day. We truly feel blessed to have had you as our celebrant. With love, Chris and Megan
From our first meeting with Catherine, we knew she was the perfect celebrant for us. She was so friendly and open and we knew we wanted someone like that involved in our special day. Catherine helped us to construct a unique and creative ceremony that reflected our personalities. She was thoughtful and professional, but above all she is lovely person. Don and Amanda
Thank you for helping to make our wedding day an absolutely joyful experience. The setting and the ceremony followed by a delectable feast with family were unforgettable. All our love Ala and Bart
From the moment we contacted Catherine she tuned into our energy and gave us the confidence that we could create our ceremony congruent with what was important to us. She was very responsive to our needs and helped to organise all the official paperwork for our wedding in a short timeframe. She took our story and ideas for vows and turned them into a beautiful ceremony incorporating all the elements that were sacred to us. She facilitated the day gracefully - providing direction when needed and stepping back to allow the natural rhythm of the day to unfold. We are very grateful for her wonderful celebrant service and would highly recommend engaging with Catherine to help you celebrate your wedding day in a special way. Cybelle and Elwin
Catherine is a beautiful and highly professional marriage celebrant. She was always open to ideas and made us feel that we could make the day completely ours. We already have two children and it was very important to us that they be incorporated in the day. Catherine had some wonderful ideas on how to make this just as special for them as it was for us. We would highly recommend her to anybody especially those wanting to add a personal touch to their wedding. Kate and Josh
Thank you from our angelic hearts. Ben and Renee
Catherine provided us with all the help we needed to have a wonderful wedding. She quickly understood our priorities and the kind of ceremony we were interested in, and guided us through the process. The ceremony itself was beautifully organised and reflected us perfectly. Catherine was sincere, warm and friendly and many of our guests remarked on what a good ceremony it was. Thanks! Fiona and Toby
Thank you again for helping to make our ceremony so intimate and personal. It was everything that we’d hoped for and more..... You made the process so much less stressful, just by being you! Rachel and Dan
Choosing a celebrant for your special day can be quite stressful, however as soon as we made contact with Catherine, we knew that she was the perfect person for this very important job. Catherine was extremely attentive, and more than happy to take on board everything that was important to us. She knew all the right questions to ask, which ensured that our ceremony truly reflected us as individuals, and as a couple. This was clearly evident in the comments that we received from each and every one of our guests on the day. They were so surprised at how much our ceremony reflected us and our relationship. Thank you so much for making what we feel is the most important part of a wedding day so very very special. Skye and Wayne
As celebrants go you have to be one of the best. You arranged, how we do not know, for a pair of sea eagles to arrive overhead at the perfect moment. You arranged for the winter weather to be perfect. And for rainbows. Of course, none of that you can put in a testimonial (though if you are confident of your alliance with nature you may!!).
We were a non-trivial wedding in that - at our advanced age - we knew exactly what we wanted, there were no mothers to get in the way and it was entirely our day. In adddition, as a surprise wedding we had to disguise it as a 60th birthday. Your contribution to all of that was critical.
We were so delighted with the words you wrote for the ceremony. We did not have to change a single word. We share back with you some of the words you spoke for our ceremony which were very appropriate for the place, the time and of course the surprise event at hand:
“May your union be forever warmed and glowing with love from your hearts, always expansive and open to the creation energy. May your lives together embrace both the untiring energy of the ocean and the quiet stillness of the mountain spring. May your connection be carried by the willful wind, staying wild and inspiring, strong and enduring, held gently in your hearts.”
The audience loved it and so did we. You conducted the proceedings with grace and good humour. For all that we thank you. Love Georgie and Trevor
