MEL + MACKA

Ali you were a total legend every step of the way and we honestly can’t thank you enough for agreeing to marry us! You were the epitome of professional, reassuring and relaxed throughout the whole process and we feel so lucky to have had you supporting us on our special day. You made it clear from the start that your priority was to ensure Macka and I both felt completely at ease during what was a very exciting, emotional and nervous time and you did that in spades.

We can’t thank you enough for being such an important part of our day, you were far more than a celebrant you were a friend and I would recommend you to anyone!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EMMA + BEN

We are so happy we chose Ali to be our wedding celebrant. Not only does she have a warm, friendly nature, she's also professional and organised. Ali offered us sound advice and helped us bring to life our vision for our wedding day. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending her.

BETHANY + BEN

The day we met Ali, we knew we'd found our wedding celebrant. Ali has a glowing, bubbly personality. We found her very warming and she took a genuine interest in our lives. We loved having her by our side at the wedding ceremony. We now consider Ali a good friend and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as your wedding celebrant.

SARAH + STEPHEN

From the first meeting with Ali she made us feel so very special. She has an innate ability to gather information about you both and then somehow manage to put something together, like she has known you forever.
Her warmth, professionalism and incredible organisation skills made everything seem so easy.
Ali delivered everything she promised and made it a seamless process. Thanks again Ali. You are a very special person.

REBECCA + STEPHEN

Ali perfectly understood our brief for creating a personalised and intimate wedding.  She magically weaved our love story into our wedding ceremony to create humour, happy tears and wonderful memories on our special day.  We were touched by Ali’s thoughtfulness, her warmth and wisdom, and her professionalism. It really was the perfect day!!

 

ELLIE + TOM

Ali was the most amazing celebrant who made us feel so calm at a hectic time.

The process of creating the ceremony was easy, and Ali had beautiful ideas for making it special and unique to us. Ali made sure we had enough time to review the ceremony details and write our vows. We weren’t the best at providing our information by deadlines, but Ali made sure we kept on track with no stress. On the day Ali ensured that everything went smoothly. Thank you so much for an amazing day, and congratulations on the birth of your son less than a month later!

CARLA + RYAN

Ali was such a pleasure to work with. She made my husband and I feel so relaxed and reassured prior to getting married. From the moment we met Ali, she came across as calming, relaxed with the right amount of organisation and confident for us. Neither of us had been through a wedding ceremony before so it was new and uncharted territory for us, especially considering we really don't enjoy PDA. But Ali made up a beautiful personable (without being mushy) service for us and reassured us the entire way. She had everything under control and we couldn't have asked for more. She is truly such a wonderful woman and celebrant. I'd recommend her to anyone and everyone. 

Thank you Ali so much for taking such good care of us during a nerve wracking time. We really appreciate it.

KIRSTY + FELIX

Thank you so much for officiating our marriage.  It was a wonderful day overall, with the venue hitting it out of the park, the weather obviously on side, and many of our friends declaring it the best wedding they’d been to (I’m sure they weren’t just being polite either!). Whilst throwing a great party is all well and good, the most important part of proceedings for us was the ceremony.  We felt very comfortable with your relaxed and friendly approach both in the planning and on the day, and were happy that you delivered a service reflective and representative of us. We would happily recommend your services.

KRISTA + EVAN

Ali officiated our wedding a few weeks ago and she did a great job. She was professional throughout the entire process and very diligent in following up before and after and in ensuring all of the finer details were considered. Ali also went out of her way to find out if some changes we wanted to make to the ceremony which were out of the norm were possible. Thanks Ali for a lovely ceremony.

LYNDAL + JAMIE

Thank you Ali for making our wedding special and completely stress free (especially since we both ended up on either side of the country for months prior). The words that you wrote about Jamie and myself were spot on, you really got to know us. Thank you for being an amazing celebrant, and thank you for stopping the music so dad could run and get my forgotten bouquet. Truly an amazing experience with friends and family.

APRIL + PETER

We feel so lucky to have had Ali as the celebrant for our recent wedding. She is professional and incredibly organised, but also warm and has a great sense of humour. She kept on top of all the details and to-do's in the lead-up so that I didn't have to worry about anything--I could tell from the start we were in great hands!

Although I won't be needing Ali's wedding services again (final husband!), I highly recommend you contact her if you're going to get hitched. She's incredibly awesome and won't let you down.

Thank you, Ali, for helping to make the day so magical and unique to Peter and me. All the best xx

AMY + WILL

Ali was an incredible celebrant and such an important part of our day. She was amazing to work with in the lead up to the wedding, very organised and thorough. She also worked really closely with us to ensure that the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. The day before the wedding we went through the ceremony, which was fantastic, making us feel so much more comfortable on the actual day. So many guests commented on what a wonderful ceremony it was and how fantastic Ali was. It was both relaxed, but sincere and loving. Ali is truly passionate about what she does and that really shines through when working with her. Ali we can't thank you enough for helping make our day so perfect. I would highly recommend Ali to any couple.

LARA + ADAM

Thank you Ali. Thank you for everything you did for Adam and I. For not only making our ceremony possible, but for making it the most stress free, fun and creative process (and we all know I am a stress head so that is saying something - you're amazing)! You are such a kind, easy going and fun loving person and we are beyond happy you pronounced us husband and wife! The words you wrote for and about Adam and I felt like you had known us forever and our ceremony could not have been more perfect! Words cannot describe how thankful we are to have had you as our celebrant.

MICHELLE + SEAN

"Ali is friendly and warm while simultaneously thorough and organised. It took me a long time to find a modern celebrant who wasn't sycophantic or over the top, I was over the moon when I finally found Ali. Her chilled energy made the whole process enjoyable and she made the ceremony perfect for us. Can't recommend her highly enough."

 

HOLLY + NIGEL

"Ali - Nige and I were so honoured to have you as our celebrant for our wedding in May! You brought so much life, spirit, warmth and sincerity to our day and even serendipitously coordinated your outfit perfectly with our macrame! No really you made the whole process of tying the knot so enjoyable and calm (even with only 4 weeks planning). Nothing seemed too much, you kept it a surprise from all of our mutual friends, you flexed to our unconventional schedule and made the hike to Myponga to ensure a smooth sailing day. We found you so encouraging, reliable and professional, you represented our hearts and intentions perfectly and though we only met you four weeks prior to the wedding it even turned out you knew as many people at the special day as we did ;) Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us in officiating us as Mr + Mrs Wyatt. we are very grateful and would recommend you to anyone who is getting hitched in the future!! much love and gratitude H+N xox"

KATE + RON

"Thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony. We loved it and you really put us at ease. I felt like no matter what weird nervous thing I managed to do, you'd be able to cover it up! And it felt so natural and genuine - exactly what we'd hoped for. So many people commented on the ceremony and said what an amazing job you did (actually, quite a lot of people said that you captured us so well that they assumed you'd known us for years!) We'll always have great memories of our wedding ceremony - and that perfectly timed sunshine! 

We also really appreciated all the work that you did beforehand, talking to us about how it all worked and ironing out the fine details. It was great to feel like you understood what kind of ceremony we wanted and what was important to us. Not to mention your fabulous professionalism. We're not the easiest people to organise, but you managed it beautifully!"

SUE + MARK

"The wedding was great! Everybody thought the ceremony was informal, sincere and delightful which was what Sue and I had hoped for. 

Thank you for your thoughtful suggestions in planning the ceremony and for your calm and happy disposition on the day. The rest of the wedding also went to plan with everybody having a good time.  Sue and I went to bed at about 3am after 30 or so guests kicked on at our place. Once again thank you for making our wedding a very special day for Sue and I."
