I can tell you how fabulous I am, but chances are you’d prefer to hear it from some of my lovely couples I’ve worked with. Here’s what they have to say!

We chose Amanda initially because we wanted a celebrant that was closer to our age. As we live out of Canberra, we organised a Skype session to see if we suited each other and after meeting Amanda, we couldn’t have been happier.
She made everything so easy, and all requirements both legal and personal were set out step by step. We absolutely love her personality and her professionalism, we couldn’t imagine anyone else being such a huge part of our special day! We had a lot of laughs (& tears) together and we couldn’t recommend Amanda more highly, she’s such a wonderful person to be around and was perfect for us. We can’t say thank you enough for your touch to our perfect day! Thank you again for everything, you were absolutely amazing!

Amanda, I honestly don’t know how to put into words how amazing you were throughout our entire 18 month engagement.  You were the first vendor we booked (18 months in advance) as I didn’t want to risk not having you a part of our day. You are so relaxed, laid back and easy going that it put me at ease from our very first meeting.  On the day I was even more grateful for this as its always a very tense and emotional time walking down that aisle.  I loved the way you engaged our guests in our ceremony and had a laugh with us, your sense of humour made it really special. I really cant thank you enough, You are incredible at what you do and I honestly couldnt have done it without you.

“Amanda turned out to be a wonderful addition to our wedding! From the first minute my husband and I met her, we knew she was the celebrant for us.  She was funny and personable and made us feel happy and excited about what was to come.  During rehearsal and on the wedding day she was professional and warming, but still kept things light hearted which really relaxed us and helped us through our nerves. She clearly loves what she does and it certainly showed!”

“Amanda is all you could hope for in a celebrant – understanding, helpful, pleasant and non-judgemental. We had special circumstances surrounding our wedding, which required the whole ceremony to be prepared at short notice and Amanda really went above and beyond her call of duty to make sure the planning was as stress-free and smooth as possible. She was very professional, both in appearance and in her dealings with us but very approachable at the same time. She was very flexible as to her side of the arrangements, she worked with us as long as needed to make sure everything was exactly as we wanted it. By the time we were married; she was more than just our celebrant and had become more like a friend to the both of us.” Anna and Chris

‘We had Amanda as our celebrant for our wedding and also using her to conduct the naming day of our first baby in the coming months.  Our main reason we picked Amanda as she is a younger celebrant that we found we could connect with easily.  We found Amanda makes the whole process stress free and very easy going as Amanda looks after the majority of it.   We found the vows a tad daunting but Amanda creates and customises the vows to suit your requirements, I would highly recommend Amanda as she is very flexible and easy to communicate with.”

“We decided to use Amanda as the celebrant for our wedding as she had married two of my husbands siblings before and we found her to be friendly and approachable and we liked that she was younger than most celebrants we had dealt with. We found her ceremonies to be personal, engaging, romantic yet also modern. All three of our family members (including ourselves) have chosen to have short ceremonies yet every ceremony Amanda conducted was still completely different and unique to the other. Amanda has a great choice of ceremony options to choose from so all the work is done for you. Most importantly she has a great sense of humour which helped to put my husband at ease whilst he was waiting for my arrival at the ceremony (fashionably late as always). We would highly recommend Amanda.”

Adam & Rachael 

“Amanda was an amazing celebrant. From our initial meeting through to our actual ceremony she always brought the same enthusiasm and bubbly personality that made us choose her to be a part of our day. She was helpful through all of our planning and answered all of our questions patiently, even helping with the final setup at the ceremony! Amanda wasn’t only our celebrant, she was an important part of our special day and it would not have been the same without her.”

“Dear Amanda, I just wanted to thank you again for being a part of our wonderful wedding day. I still can’t believe how seamless our ceremony was thanks to you! You were really great throughout the planning process as well,  you were always available for a chat if needed and responded quickly to all of our emails.

You definitely put us at ease when we caught up to plan out our ceremony, you were open to all of our ideas and helped us design a ceremony that incorporated both of our preferences. So, a sincere thank you to you for making one of the hardest parts of planning our wedding an absolute breeze! 🙂 Please take this as our testimonial to your hard work. You are a great person and so easy to get along with.”

” The Amazing Amanda… You did a brilliant job and many of our friends and family commented on how great you were. The ceremony you conducted was just beautiful and we truly had the best day of our lives. With you, we were able to create a ceremony that was perfectly us. On the day, you were amazing. Your professionalism and warmth, the reassuring calmness in which you dealt with the pre-ceremony was incredible. We could not have wished for more in a celebrant and when we said goodbye to you after the ceremony, it was like saying goodbye to a friend. Thank you so much for everything.”
