Best ceremony ever!

Made it so personal and went above and beyond just officiating our wedding. Got to know key people and mingled with guests too. Everyone loved the ceremony, so much praise for Colette and I鈥檝e also heard that she took charge too to make it all happen on time etc.

Some really fun ideas for the service and easy going with any changes we wanted to make. Will remember if forever!!

Wonderful service from Colette

We recently had the wedding of our dreams that was officiated by Colette and we couldn鈥檛 recommend her services enough. Colette told our story perfectly, which made our ceremony incredibly personal and special. Colette responded to any queries we had so quickly, and was always happy to help. She listened to everything we wanted and got it perfectly. She went above and beyond to help reassure us on the day, even helping my brother with his bow tie before the ceremony! A really wonderful experience, that we will remember forever. Thank you Colette x

Wow - what a fantastic experience!

Myself and my wife were married at the end of August 2023. We originally were planning on simply having a registrar marry us but eventually decided to go for a celebrant. Colette was fantastic. Prior to the event we had multiple calls and an in person meeting to go over all information regarding the day and ceremony (she even went through events for after the ceremony which was above and beyond what she was being asked to do.) both myself and my partner knew we had made the correct decision prior to the day itself. Colette also went to the venue prior to the day of our ceremony date, again giving us peace of mind that she was on top of everything and ensuring everything would go well. On the day she was very punctual, helped myself and the best men walk through the day (I know she did the same with the bride and bridesmaids but obviously I wasn鈥檛 there at that point). The ceremony went without a hitch and was absolutely lovely. It was everything we asked for and more. We had multiple guests inform us of how lovely it was and several people say they would want the same at their wedding). Thank you Colette for a very special day. You were fantastic.

The Perfect Ceremony!

After meeting with Colette for the first time it didn't take long for us to realise we had found the perfect celebrant for our wedding.

She took the time to allow us to explain our story and the way she brought it to life and delivered it during the ceremony was truly remarkable. I can't think of anyone who loves their job more than Colette and her passion, understanding and confidence set the tone for the perfect day.

All of our guests commented on what an amazing ceremony it was and the way it was so tailored to our personal love story.

Colette gave us something very unique and memorable, we would highly recommend her services.

Nothing short of exceptional!

Colette was absolutely amazing, totally surpassing our expectations. She made our wedding! We loved the content, structure and life she gave to us our ceremony. It was SO US! Our guests thought that we knew her before, it was that brilliant. The support she gave with our vows was also incredible. Colette has such as talent and we feel so blessed to have had her as our celebrant. We'll be calling her to help us with our 5 year vows. We highly highly recommend Colette to anyone who needs celebrant services. She is exceptional!

Our Wedding

Colette officiated at our wedding recently and I would have no hesitation recommending her. From the start, Colette listened to our wishes and built a wonderful bespoke ceremony which made our day very special. Colette's warm personality shone through on the day and we couldn't have wished for more. Colette is easy to do business with and we would recommend her wholeheartedly. Thank you Colette!

Lovely personal touches

Our ceremony was a really special part of our day. Colette got to know all the little details of our lives together - when and how we met, and what's important to us in our lives together. She wrote our story and it made us laugh and cry, with all the personal touches. On the day the time just flew by!
Our guests all commented on how lovely the service was, and it just couldn't have been more perfect

Personalised and meaningful

Colette performed our renewal of vows ceremony for our special anniversary. We were both so please with the ceremony, it was planned to perfection and everything was going to schedule until I sprained my ankle the day before and ended up in a wheelchair for the ceremony!
Colette somehow made it work, she was flexible, accommodating and made me feel totally relaxed and comfortable.
The words Colette wrote for us were really personalised and meaningful. At times it was a real tearjerker!
We're so glad we chose Colette for our vow renewal and highly recommend her.

Fun filled and moving ceremony

When choosing a celebrant for our wedding it was important to us that we had the right fit and that they 'got us'. Colette was instantly sunshine and light! So warm and engaging, we clicked with her straightaway and she completely understood what we were about. As a gay couple we did not want a traditional stuffy service and we certainly did not have that! The ceremony that Colette wrote and conducted was so right for us that it seemed like she had known us for years! We will forever cherish the memories of our fun filled and moving wedding day. Thank you Colette! Love from Mauro and Andre xxx
