We wish to express a great THANK YOU for your warm professional approach when meeting with yourself during the preparations process for our wedding ceremony.

We knew from the first time we meet you we would be well cared for, all possible ideas and approaches were well explained and you also allowing the freedom to have our ceremony delivered in anyway we wish, we are grateful.

We cannot thank you enough for sharing our special day, taking the time to run through a rehearsal and ensured the ceremony flowed beautifully and effortlessly on the day.

In our eyes, it was your presence, delivery and professionalism which made our ceremony complete.

Just being you, also helped Craig to relax and enjoy the moment.

Also thank you for your lovely gift, I will treasure it forever.

We are so sorry we didn't get the chance to say goodbye or thankyou... Everything just happens so fast!

Thankyou so much for helping make our day so special.

Wedding day for Bianca and Simon 19/01/2013

A beautiful wedding at the Corio Villa in Geelong. Perfect weather, perfect venue and a perfect ceremony.

So many people from both the bride and grooms family and guests congratulated me on how very well I presented the ceremony.

One lady was so impressed she came to me and said ‘thank you, the ceremony was so relaxed and so special’. She took my hand and ‘said that ‘it takes a very special person to present as well as I did’.

Another told me she has been to a lot of weddings and 'no one has impressed her as much as I did. She said she loved how relaxed I worked and how beautiful a ceremony'.

I love it when I receive so such praise for my work. I put a lot of effort into my ceremonies and I aim for perfection for every ceremony; and this was so very much appreciated today.

Tara Matthew & Tilly

Hi Maureen

We would like to thank you for helping us make our Wedding Ceremony so special. We appreciated your advice and expertise in regard to the format; we particularly liked the concept of the “Hand Fasting Ceremony” suggested by you.

From when we first met you were quickly able to tap into our personalities and assist us in designing a service that was appropriate for our needs.

The ceremony was relaxed and engaging with laughter and joy which was what we had hoped for. Our guests commented on your style and how they too felt comfortable and relaxed.

In fact the ceremony was more than what we had hoped for so again many thanks.

Warm regards,

Chris & John

(PS Thanks for the loan of your reading glasses!)

Maureen put together a perfect ceremony and we truly feel that our wedding day was made better by her caring involvement and her professionalism.Prior to the wedding day we met with Maureen on different occasions.

She guided us and provided us with material to personalise our ceremony. The result was a perfect combination of readings, anecdotes and vows that felt completely right and tailormade to us.

On our wedding day she was well prepared and made the ceremony flow seamlessly. We both felt comfortable and completely relaxed.Maureen is genuinely warm and lovely and she helped us so much throughout the entire time from our first meting till to the wedding day, making it all seem so easy.

We really could not have had a better person to be our Celebrant.

Thank you Maureen we will definately recommend you to everyone.
