Joshua and Charisse – Wedding Ceremony

Hi Cath,

We wanted to write you a quick email to thank you. We could not have been happier with our decision of choosing you as our celebrant. We had no idea how or where to start with drafting a ceremony and you guided us through it all.

We received a lot of wonderful compliments with the ceremony. All our guests were giving us great feed backs and compliments with how the ceremony was held; how organised it was & how everything ran smoothly from the very beginning.

You were very professional, organised and definitely exceeded our expectations!

We could not have had a successful wedding without you!

Thank you!

Regards, Josh & Charisse

Thien and Anna – Wedding Ceremony

Hi Cath,

Just wanted to thank you again for everything that you've done for us throughout the whole process. Couldn't have asked for better celebrant, you were absolutely amazing. You listened to our ideas, shared your thoughts and helped us to create a perfect ceremony.

The civil ceremony was wonderful and our guests kept commenting on how personal and intimate it was. We’re very lucky to have found a celebrant that was creative, fun, warmth and understanding, and I felt so confident that the ceremony would be superb knowing it was in your hands.

Also, thank you for providing everything during the ceremony especially the bottle(s) for the sand ceremony and for all the suppliers you recommended.

We will definitely recommend you to everyone xx

Max and Sally – Wedding Ceremony

We first saw Cath at our friends’ wedding and were impressed with what we saw. Especially as she was able to conduct the ceremony in Cantonese for the main parts as we had a few family members who couldn't speak English. Our friends who were married by Cath spoke highly of her and we trusted their recommendation.

When it was our turn, we met Cath at her home and felt very assured. Cath is very friendly, patient and extremely helpful by explaining everything we needed to know and expect. From start to finish, Cath was very professional and diligent in her work. Communication and follow up was prompt and accurate and she always thinks a few steps ahead. Our wedding day ran smoothly and we thank Cath for a great day. We have no hesitation to recommend Cath to all future couples.

Gregory and Richelle (from France) – Renewal of Vows Ceremony

Hi Cath,

I hope this email finds you well.

You performed a renewal of vows ceremony for myself and my husband Gregory at the Tea Room Gunners' Barracks on the 31st of March 2012. At first I wasn't sure whether I should send this email but eventually decided that I wanted you to know.

I would like to thank you for insisting that my father "give me away" despite my initial reservations of appearing ridiculous due to being already married therefore "not eligible" to be given away.

He passed away a couple of weeks ago after a short battle with a very aggressive lymphoma that shocked everyone in its rapidity to claim his life.

I was looking through photos from our beautiful day in Sydney last year and besides thinking how happy and proud he looked, I recalled our conversation during a meeting at your home when you convinced me to let Dad walk me down the aisle ... despite my protests of "but it's not a real wedding."

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I'm so glad you insisted, so thank you very much.

Kind regards, Richelle

Christopher and Merilyn (from Singapore) – Wedding Ceremony

Thanks again to you and your husband for a great ceremony. Further thanks also for the sand ceremony idea, there were many lovely comments from the guests on this.

We went up today to BDM and secured the official certificate, and we will get the apostle stamp later this week. All in all we had a great day and the weather was sensational.

Again thanks for your personal and professional assistance to guide and complete our marriage.

Kind Regards Christopher

Darren and Julfa – Wedding Ceremony

Hi Cath,

Cath was great, my fiancée was still over sea's and I had to all the first stage organising myself, Cath helped with all the visa preparation and told me exactly what had to be done, sent the paperwork out, she was so helpful.

Then when my Fiancée arrived, we had another meeting with Cath to make all the final arrangements.

Narelle’s Funeral Service

Hi Cathy

I would like to thank you so much for the beautiful eulogy you gave for my friend Narelle who sadly passed away recently.

Your voice was like velvet washing over me and your words were very touching, doing Narelle proud. You put so much effort into your words and it was hard to believe you did not know Narelle personally.

Thank you so much also for all you did leading up to her funeral, putting everyone at ease and making the day more bearable.

I actually was just watching the video White Ladies did for the funeral and it made me realise again how glad I am it was you who did the eulogy.

Thanks Cathy and would love you to put this on your website because as far as I'm concerned you are fantastic.

Dear Cath,

Our family was very pleased to meet you last night. You have helped us tremendously and we are very grateful. The fact that you also share our background is serendipitous. We feel that you really understood us, and how we want to pay tribute to our beloved father.

Best regards

We have recommended Catherine to a number of other couples and will continue to do so

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better Celebrant. Cath had everything prepared to make our wedding preparations that whole lot easier.

She made us laugh and answered any questions we had with an eye for detail. Even though our wedding fell on one of the hottest days of the century, Cathy always had a smile on her face and kept our guests at ease.

I'd recommend her to anyone who will be walking down the aisle soon.

Refectory Hall, University of Sydney

Stanford and Anita – Wedding Ceremony

Of all the wedding suppliers that we had to deal with during our year of wedding planning, Cath was definitely one of the best.

Cath's experience in the field meant that she was always one step ahead of the game and was able to provide exceptional quality service. Her expertise in the area, her amazing organisational skills and her attention to detail is something that is extremely important to me, and as a very pedantic person myself, I found that Cath not only met but exceeded all my expectations.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Cath to any future couples who are after a professional and very friendly wedding celebrant.

Andrew and Christine - Wedding Ceremony

Hi Cathy,

We just want to say thank you very much for being our celebrant for such an important day. The weather was beautiful as there was no sight of rain which was a big relief.

Everything went so smoothly and easy going that we couldn't help ourselves excitedly smile and yet remain relaxed. The way you had organised the entire ceremony made it so much easier for us, having so many suggestions, options and ideas and that we just had to tell you what we wanted and you were able to make it happen.

The unexpected gift from you was such a surprise, you didn't have to, and it was very nice. We're definitely going to open it up when the baby arrives. Again, just wanting to say "Thank You" - it was such an amazing day and we are both glowing.

Please feel free to use any of this on your testimonials as we recommend you as a celebrant.

Thank You and Kind Regards, Christine

Joneil and Bronwyn - Wedding Ceremony

Professional and Personable, Accommodating and Understanding is how we experienced Cath at her best as the celebrant for Our Special Day.

The search and selection for our celebrant was quite daunting, filtering through many pages of possible celebrants, reviewing their profiles & pics...but when we came across Cath's profile a sense of calmness and comfortability came over us, we immediately felt this celebrant(Cath) was the right one for us.

On our meeting with Cath she was so welcoming and just made us feel so comfortable and at ease. We loved that Cath made our ceremony as personalised as we wanted, Cath guided us in preparation for our special day and gave us food for thought for our future.

We are so grateful for all that Cath has done for us and would certainly recommend Cath when looking for a Celebrant. We will definitely utilise Cath's services again in the near future.

Thank you so much Cath!

Sandrine & Ly’s Wedding

Sandrine & Ly - Wedding Ceremony

Good morning Catherine,
Ly and I would like to thank you for all your exceptional assistance, support and friendship through the lead up of the wedding day to the actual ceremony.

As you know we had a lot of commotion with Jessica Watson coming into the harbour and waiting for our guests to arrive. This did not stop you for going out of your way to ensure our guests did not miss the event of a life time and also for me who couldn't be more happier to have had an opportunity to show the world how you may only stop for a moment to allow such a great young girl cross the finish line to only start my journey of love and happiness with Ly.

Your professional and expertise in handling such an eventful day with great poise is a great pleasure having you as our celebrant. We thank you for all your dedication and passion for making us one.

One only thing is that I hope you have investigated the footage from the interview with Ben Fordham. I would love to share this with my family and friends.

Thank you once again.

The Quay Restaurant, Circular Quay

Michael and Lily - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was recommended to us by a friend who she had also wed and after our experience, my wife and I also highly recommend her.

She was so thorough in her knowledge about the legal aspect of getting married as well as the emotional aspect. Her experiences in being a celebrant helped us to understand how we may react or want our ceremony to be.

Cath truly had her responsibilities as our celebrant under control and left any other stresses to be focused elsewhere for what turned out to be the perfect wedding day!

Canley Vale

Duy and Aelina - Wedding Ceremony

From the initial meeting with Catherine, my husband and I knew we were in good hands. Catherine is the ideal Marriage Celebrant, she is informative on all legal aspects, professional and very well organised.

During the preparation of our wedding ceremony, Catherine provided her guidance and assistance on everything from our wedding vows, dance lessons, wedding songs choices and even equipment hire. She was always there for us, to help and support us.

On the day of our wedding, the ceremony was simply beautiful and memorable. Thank you to both Catherine and her husband for making our wedding day so perfect. Her sense of humour, warmth and kind nature at the ceremony brought so much laughter, joy and tears on our special day.

My husband and I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone and it has been an absolute pleasure to have Catherine Flavell as our Celebrant.

Oatlands House, Dundas

Felix and Lilian - Renewal Of Vows Ceremony

Cath, to us was a God send.

I first contacted Cath 11th May for my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary ten days before it was due. We had a little less than two weeks of preparation to find a venue and a celebrant that would perform the renewal of vows for my parents’ special occasion.

As my parents had both been ill prior to their anniversary, my father with his vision and mum with her vertigo that lasted more than two months we really could not plan an elaborate celebration and this is where Cath comes in. My daughter found her name on a website along with some others. However she was the only one who picked up the phone and not some answering machine.

I also had two more celebrants that returned the call and set up an appointment but it was Cath’s voice that attracted me, her tone and friendliness and most of all she was very accommodating upon learning the predicament we were in.

Immediately she told me in details what was involved and as we had less than two weeks, she set up a meeting with me and my parents at her home that weekend. She was not only professional but very organised too. She conducted an interview with my parents on how their love blossomed and led to marriage all those years ago. She gave us lists of appropriate readings for the grandchildren to read and a couple of rituals that might be suitable to the little grandkids and great grandchild. The whole family was involved. She made it more exciting and special that on the actual day it was more than what we had anticipated for.

The right setting for the garden ceremony, a moving story of my parents love story that she read out on her PA system, music, the exchanging of their wedding rings, the lighting of the candles and the presentation of their certificate as well as their little story book. It had an individual touch that Cath provided, which made it so special.

My parents’ joy was written all over their face as well as my three brothers who gave a very positive feedback on the whole celebration.

I would recommend her business one hundred percent as I am sure she gives her best to all her clients judging from the experience we had, as a matter of fact my daughter had also contracted her to perform the ceremony for her wedding when the time comes (hopefully soon).

Owen and Vivienne - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was amazing, she was attentive and helped us to create a personalised, intimate wedding.

The Quay Restaurant, Circular Quay

Jamie and Rafael - Wedding Ceremony

Cath's efforts on the day and her preparation prior to the wedding were exceptional. Prior to meeting her, she was very quick to respond to all our questions via phone calls and emails.

Once we met her, we knew she was the celebrant for us because she was warm, friendly and we were comfortable dealing with her. On top of that, she was super organised and made every effort to help us in personalising our wedding ceremony. She made our wedding day special and completely stress-free! We couldn't have ask for more.

She exceeded our expectations and we would recommend anyone to use her services in the future. She's the celebrant every wedding couple should have.

Kevin’s Funeral Service

Hi Cath,

Kind regards, the family.

Our initial meeting with Cath was informative and Cath had very good knowledge in the legal aspects and as well as personal emotions that she has seen with other couples.

My wife and I were extremely pleased that Cath helped us to create a personalised ceremony and it was commented by a lot of our guests.

Cath prepared us for the ceremony with a few private rehearsals, stepping us through each stage in a manner that had us prepared and relaxed for our wedding day and making it memorable.

Overall the ceremony went very smoothly and we couldn't have done it without Cath's help.

My wife and I would highly recommend Cath as your wedding celebrant. Thanks again Cath!

Bicentennial Park, Homesbush Bay

Nathan and Jacqueline - Wedding Ceremony

Cath made our Ceremony as Intimate and Romantic as we can possibly have it. She has provided us with a tailored Ceremony to reflect what my husband and I have for each other.

Being Filipino, I wanted to do the Coin ceremony and Lighting of the candle which meant a lot to me. I asked Cath to help me put these in the Ceremony. She has set it up it for me and made our Ceremony more special.

I have been to a lot of weddings and I must admit that Cath is very good at what she does! She was there to help us from day 1.

Wollongong Botanic Gardens)

Rick and Chuhoa - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was well organised and professional from day one, especially on our wedding day in coordinating when we were ready to start the ceremony.

She made our wedding day feel perfect and romantic. Cath has a calm and pleasant voice which we believed created the tone to the ceremony.

All our family and friends kept on commenting what a romantic wedding it was but especially mentioned what a fantastic job our celebrant did.

We were extremely happy with the whole day and experience and highly recommend Cath to anyone who is looking for a celebrant.

The Nun’s Pool, Cronulla

We want to thank Cath for the wonderful job she did as our celebrant (on 19/11/11). She was both professional and personal, adding a warmth to our occasion that will be remembered fondly.

From the first time we met with Cath, she took the hassle out of the ceremony preparation and paperwork, and I am very grateful for her professional handling of an awkward situation of my mother (the mother of the bride) not arriving at the ceremony on time.

Thanks Cath - you are wonderful!!!!

Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney

Adam and Iona - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was the first celebrant we made an appointment to meet for a pre-wedding chat. When she welcomed us into her lovely home and guided us through the whole process, we knew we had found our celebrant!

We found Cath to be very warm, friendly and extremely professional. She took care of all the legal work and wedding ceremony organisation. Most of all she calmed our nerves and reassured us that she will deliver a ceremony that would be highly personable and intimate.

On our wedding day, Cath delivered everything we had asked for and made the day run very smoothly. Our ceremony was filled with laughter and was very moving.

After the ceremony, many friends and family commented on how wonderful Cath was. They especially enjoyed how Cath filled the ceremony with humour and sincerity.

If you are looking for a celebrant that is warm, genuine and highly professional, my husband and I highly recommend Cath.

Thank you Cath for making our wedding day so special.

Surprise Renewal of Vows at Cremorne Point

Peter and Jungme - Wedding Ceremony

Catherine was so easy to deal with and super friendly.. The whole process was fun to begin with and she made it really easy with her folders which explained pretty much everything.

She is so organised and professional. After meeting her, I knew everything will be sorted. She would follow up with phone calls and emails to ensure everything will go to plan. Even though we weren’t fussed on the ceremony details or readings, she help choose something that really fit our personalities and made it sound so romantic and nice on the day!

She was so helpful with the signing table, pen, ring pillow and getting people sorted on the day. I truly believe the money spent was well worth it. It really made our day the most memorable and enjoyable.

We highly recommend Cath as she really has the heart to help and she can deliver a ceremony that people will be talking about for ages. Thanks so much.

Adrian and Linda - Wedding Ceremony

Dearest Catherine

We chose Cath to be our celebrant after attending a friend’s wedding at which she had carried out the ceremony.

We had originally planned to get married late Feb and had organised the date with Cath a while ago. We both went around and ran through the basics, did the simple paper work. All very friendly. Then, we had a change and needed to get it done quicker.

All in all, we brought everything forward with just over a weeks notice, during this time we had to pop around go through the final choice of readings and vows. Cath had been extremely accommodating, even being prepared to put off a prior family engagement to help us out. As it turned out she brought her family along to the wedding including her charming daughter who even helped decorate the venue with some flowers. The ceremony went without a hitch.

It was beautifully done, some of the guests commented to me on the day that we were lucky to get her to do it, I really think we were.

Love Linda and Adrian

Ben and Carmen - Wedding Ceremony

Greg and Marilou - Wedding Ceremony

Catherine was the Marriage Celebrant performing our Ceremony at Auburn Botanical Gardens on January 25 , 2011 . Catherine prepared us for the ceremony with several private rehearsals, stepping us through each stage in a manner that had us prepared and relaxed for our wedding day.

On the day itself the weather was around 35 degrees and very uncomfortable but Catherine was punctual , presented herself in a lovely way and guided us through the ceremony in a very professional manner.

I would not hesitate to recommend Catherine and would also say that from her efforts before, during and after our business we did not only think of Catherine just as a Marriage Celebrant but as a friend to us both.

Simmy and Jonathan - Wedding Ceremony

Hi Catherine
Just a quick note to say thanks so very much for all your support and help to us through our 'journey' and preparation towards our wedding day.

Your manual of readings and goodies made the ceremony part a breeze for us. Best of all, your friendliness, enthusiasm and efficiency were much appreciated in making us feel comfortable that everything was looked after and ready for the big day! Thanks for all your tips and advice (e.g. about flowers / cakes / best-ring-exchange-photo-opportunity-hand-position-technique) along the way too! You're definitely more than just a celebrant!

Thank you very much to you and your husband for helping with our ceremony! Everyone said it was beautiful (some tears in the audience too, I heard!). I'm sure we'll cross paths again, as my friends seek celebrants for their weddings in the future!

All the best to you and your family!

We could not have asked for a more perfect celebrant. You were welcoming and great from the first day we met!!

You were helpful in every aspect, guiding us and offering suggestions on how we could include our family and our children into our ceremony. Your wedding manual was comprehensive and a great resource and help to both Kevin and myself as we choose our readings.

The guests were even commenting on how great you were and loved the idea that we included our children in such a special way during the ceremony.

Thanking you again for being a special part of our wedding day.

Love Kevin and Antonella.

Eiesha & Joshua’s - Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cath
Thank you very much for the beautiful ceremony. Your words and the words we shared with each other will last a lifetime.

Cath is a wonderful celebrant. She is warm, friendly and organised. The ceremony preparation was easy and enjoyable. I liked the flexible appointment times and we also could corresponded via email.

I loved that Cath did a site visit to our ceremony location which was in Blue Mountains.

Love Eiesha and Josh

Bernard and Joanne - Commitment Ceremony

Hi Catherine

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful wedding ceremony.

There were a couple of hiccups on the way, but you made me and Joanne feel comfortable and calm, and you made the ceremony run through very smoothly.

There were quite a few positive comments about the sand ceremony, which looks like it was one of the highlights of the night. The pattern was beautiful, even though by the time it got home, the sand moved around and most of the pattern is lost. But at least we captured it all on photo and video. :)

Thanks again for making our ceremony and reception night so special.

Michelle and James - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was extremely professional from our first contact with her, but also took time to make sure we were comfortable with the process and understood everything that was taking place.

Cath took the extra step to make our experience with her personal, and showed that she genuinely cared.

Dealing with Cath was a pleasure, not only would I recommend her to friends and family in need of a marriage celebrant, I would also use her again for the other services she provides.

Cath is very personable, friendly, and very organised - willing to go out of her way to help where she can. I would use her again in a heart beat!

Teresa and Perry - Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cath
A big thank you for all the help and guidance you provided to myself and Perry for our wedding. We didn't give you much time due to the short lead up and this didn't seem to matter. Your professionalism was evident at all stages of the process and your advice invaluable.

The wedding was the best one Perry and I have been to and made more special by you as our celebrant.

Dear Cath
We thank you for the beautiful service you did for mum.

Everyone said how nice it was and how lovely you are.

Once again I thank you.

Aung and Myat - Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cath
We knew straightaway when we met you that you were the perfect celebrant for us. We thought that you are great and your experience providing just the right amount of seriousness and formality.

Your professionalism and skills in communication also facilitate a relaxed atmosphere for all of us. We also really appreciate your calm and easy approach during the ceremony and that enabled us to forget our nerves and say our vows. Thank you very much for being part of our special day.

We can’t express enough gratitude towards you and wish you well in many other joyful occasions.

Alan and Marion - Renewal of Vows Ceremony

Dear Cath
I hope you now feel more comfortable that I insisted on having a surprise renewal of vows ceremony. The event went off fantastically and it was a treat to have so many people caught off guard on what they witnessed.

Your execution of all the items we planned was excellent and it was all timed to a tee.

All in all a night to remember, I would recommend your services to anyone and thanks again.

Cheers Alan

It was a really great day. Damon is still talking about it!!

John and Belinda - Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cath

Thank you for a wonderful service – short, simple and just what we wanted.

Rachel and Tim - Wedding Ceremony

When I met Cath I knew there and then that she was going to be our celebrant, she just blew me away with the knowledge and how friendly she was.

It was also very helpful to know that Cath was just an e-mail or phone call away to help us out with our vows and the requirements that we needed to get to her. It was always good to know that Cath was there to help us through everything that we needed to make our special day that extra special.

Cath was AMAZING especially on the day. As I was running a little late (as per tradition, but I was a lot more than traditionally late) Cath was very helpful with calming my husband’s nerves, helping us out through the ceremony with all of the tears and laughter.

Sometimes words can really not express how much help Cath was and how much she just made the day.

I highly recommend Cath to anyone in need of a celebrant.

Thanks Cath

Gabriel and Ella - Wedding Ceremony

I was thrilled from the beginning of planning my wedding with Cath.

She thought about all those little things I didn't even know they exist.

Everything was taken care of and follow up calls were made to make sure everything will go smoothly. We had issues with papers from overseas,.but even that was handled with ease and professionally. You need a marriage celebrant?....Cath is the one to choose...believe me.

Steven and Kate - Wedding Ceremony

Cath put a lot of work into our ceremony offering suggestions and helping to customise it to suit both our cultures (being Irish and Chinese) everyone commented on how lovely our ceremony was.

We highly recommend Cath, we received our official wedding certificate in the mail less than 2 weeks after getting married thanks to Cath registering our marriage so quickly, my friend waited nearly than 3 months through another celebrant!

Catherine is one of those people I am very comfortable dealing with. She made our wedding so special and I cannot ask for anything more. She is great and easy to deal with. So if you are thinking of tying the knot, you can always count on Cath.

Mal and John - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was warm and friendly from the start and made everything very simple and straight forward and helping us through the whole process.

On the day she was very professional and kept us on schedule, as you seem to be always running late on the day. It was really nice to have someone guide you through the wedding, even more enjoyable when its your celebrant.

Kerry and Joanne - Wedding Ceremony

When Joanne and I first met Cath there were nerves running through both of our veins as we approach her front door. When Cath finally open the door and she smiled at both of us, all of our worries disappeared.

A feeling that we had known Cath for years passed through us both as we were invited into her stunning, yet warm home.

Jo and I had know each other for 4 years but struggled to find the words to describe how much we loved each other. We thought it would be many sleepless nights working out our vows.

Cath once again came to our rescue and had a whole folder of ideas that she had collected through the years.

On the big day, Cath was there 15 minutes early from the time we agreed on which set my mind at ease. Seeing her warm smile again, I knew that the whole day was going to be a success.

Even though we had a slight change with how we rehearsed the ceremony, Cath adjusted very professionally and was very flexible to new arrangements. (White pigeons were to be released at a certain time).

Overall at such short notice, Cath was a blessing. Jo and I recommend her to all our friends in Sydney. We wish to renew our vows in the near future and with no doubt we would be honoured to have Cath with us on that special occasion. Not only was Cath our celebrant on our memorable day, but now we consider her our personal friend of our beautiful family.

Peter and Karen - Wedding Ceremony

Hi Catherine,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you, on behalf of Pete and I, for all your help with our ceremony.

Right from the start we felt assured that we were in good hands with you. Your advice, guidance and professionalism all along the way made it a perfect ceremony on the day for us, and our entire family were so impressed and had only glowing words to say about it. Thank you for making the lead up to our most memorable day a seamless and stress- free journey.

In saying that, a family friend of ours, who was present at the ceremony, is intending to get married, and would like to enquire about your celebrant services for herself and I am passing on your details.

Thanks ever so much once again, you truly helped us make it the most wonderful day of our lives.

Warmest regards,
Karen and Pete

Rong and Yi - Wedding Ceremony

Hi Cath
Thank you for solemnising our marriage. My wife and I are both very glad with the great job you've done last night.

You patiently explained everything to us along with your friendly and helpful nature was what sold us to engage you as our celebrant.

Again, thank you for everything you've done for us since the noticing period.

Rong & Yi

Janice & Steve – Wedding Ceremony

You made the day very easy and simple, which was what we preferred. You explained everything and made the wedding and us feel comfortable.

We are very happy with your services and will recommend you to anybody.

Francis & Aletheia – Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cath

We cannot thank you enough for planning such a lovely wedding!

It was great that we were so involved throughout the whole process of planning the ceremony. It made it so much more meaningful.

We were fortunate to get showers of blessing on our wedding day! However, it unfortunately interfered with our guest being able to hear what was going on in the ceremony. But this did not stop us from having a wonderful time!

Thank you again for doing such a great job! We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, or give you a reference.

Love Francis & Aletheia

Alec and Pip – Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cath

We still haven’t stopped telling people what a brilliant thing your wedding folder was for us in allowing us to pick and choose from your ceremony tapas menu.

The time you took with our ceremony, the help you gave us, your advice and encouragement in all our flights of fancy made our ceremony both very personal and so easy to put together.

Thank you!

Peter and Mary– Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cath,

Thank you for all your patience and support. We appreciate all your hard work and making our day a very special one.

Many of our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was particularly the way the boys were included in the process.

Denis and Claire – Wedding Ceremony

Thanks for the wonderful ceremony. At all times we were confident that things will go well, or we can seek advice from you on any matter and you would be able to help.

We appreciated your understanding and flexibility when we requested change of the date for the ceremony, and the time of the ceremony later. Your handbook was very comprehensive with samples of readings and ceremonies. We were hoping for something like a process map in written form showing how to prepare for the wedding, such as what to do at what stage and what we should consider and where to look for that information. This was explained to us through questions and your answers and emails.

Your professionalism and your smile made us very comfortable.

Denis and Claire

Larissa and Daniel - Wedding Ceremony

When we went to meet with Cath, we were both a bit apprehensive. We were unsure of the process and what it all involved and with the wedding planning, we were feeling a bit overwhelmed. When we met with her however, she made us feel quite comfortable and was very personable/likeable. There was no question we would be having her as our celebrant on the day.

Cath was very organised and we found she was able to suggest a lot of things we had not thought of and even recommend suppliers she had met through the business. She made the process a lot easier than we had originally expected and she was able to organise the ceremony just the way we had requested it be originally, simple, informal and relaxed.

We had a few dramas on the day with rain but fortunately, she was able to reorganise the set up at the venue (outside) once the rain had stopped in order for myself and the bridesmaid to avoid any mud or other things which would ruin the dresses and shoes.

Very professional and a lovely person. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any other couples I know who may be married in the future.

Alicia and Walter - Wedding Ceremony

Cath

Thank you so much. The ceremony was fantastic!!!

Love Walter and Alicia

Nathan and Thi - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was extremely professional and was able to anticipate all our needs (including needs we didn't know about!)

Her knowledge and hand out material made it very easy for us to work out our ceremony plan.

You won’t be disappointed!

Sathya and Steven – Wedding Ceremony

Dear Cathy

You were the most helpful and supportive celebrant we could have asked for. You helped us out of a really tough situation with another celebrant and helped to make our wedding the day of our dreams.

It wouldn't have been the same without you. Our ceremony was beautiful.

Sathya and Steven

Steven and Jennifer - Wedding Ceremony

Cath was our celebrant for a small backyard wedding in Sydney. She was very organised and professional, arrived early as promised on the day, and was helpful all throughout our wedding planning process.

My bride was very comfortable knowing that at least this part of the wedding would go smoothly, which was a huge relief for me.!!

Copes Lookout, Milson’s Point NSW

Jamie and Rita (from Hong Kong) – Wedding Ceremony

As an overseas couple from Hong Kong, we at first knew nothing about the legal requirements and cultural procedures of a wedding ceremony in Australia. Cath did not only explain and guide us in detail of what we need to do, she also gave us lot of suggestions for making our Big Day perfect and hassle-free.

We were impressed by Cath's delicate, professional and wholehearted services. To us, she was not just a wedding celebrant, she was indeed a wedding planner. Say, she even took care of our choices of wedding venue (suggested us a Plan B venue for bad weather), music for the ceremony, guided us the right pose for taking better pics at the ceremony, arranged the wedding certificate to send back to HK directly in an efficient and economical way (so we could enjoy our honeymoon around Australia without worrying to get the wedding certificate from the legal authority during our limited time in Australia).... oh... and passed me tissues when I was so touched and cried at the ceremony...!!!

Having Cath as our wedding celebrant was a gift from God. She is much more than we originally expected. She made our day even more perfect!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
