Having worked with Alison on a professional level, I can’t recommend her highly enough! What you see is what you get, a big-hearted lady who will go to the ends of the earth for her clients. Alison is kind, thoughtful and considerate, she weaves the information she gleans from clients into deep and meaningful ceremonies, creating lasting memories. She’s not only a wonderful person but a bloody brilliant Celebrant!!!Sent on 05/06/2021

Our perfect wedding day!
Having a wedding this year was certainly different and whilst we had a wonderful day both at the registry office and then my sisters for the reception, we were really missing having the opportunity to personalise our vows to each other and to my step daughter. That’s where Ali stepped in and turned our wedding around. Aside from the professionalism and immaculate organisation and care around the planning of our special day, Ali brought an abundance of spirit and love to our ceremony that touched not only us but our guests too. We were blessed to have her there and be a part of such a special milestone in our lives. Thank you so much Ali - we are so lucky to have had you. It really was the perfect day!

I nominated her for an award AND SHE WON!
I saw Alison at a friend's wedding and I wanted to jump on board and shout her name from the rooftops. So much so, I even nominated her for the Celebrant Industry Awards. hahaha AND she won!
Honestly the ceremony was SO beautiful. With weddings, sometimes people just look forward to the party, but Alison kept everyone engaged for the whole ceremony. From the way she welcomed the congregation and made us all so comfortable, to the way in which she weaved my friends' love story into the service ... you can tell she's had experience in public speaking because she achieved the perfect balance of 'holding the space' and keeping the focus on the grooms. Everyone just felt SO safe in her hands. Totally exceptional.
She was down to earth yet gave the service the gravitas equired. She was also really funny. If I ever get married, I want her to do MY wedding.
