Thank you for a beautiful ceremony Simone. You helped make it enjoyable, loving, fun and laid back, perfect for a beach wedding. Being able to be a part of the making and writing of the ceremony with your help and guidance was awesome! We were able to make the ceremony really special, personal and what we both wanted. Thanks again Simone xx (Alana & Martin.)

Hi Simone, Thank you so much! We really enjoyed the whole day - the only bad thing was that it went so fast! We were absolutely thrilled with how the ceremony went - it was exactly what we wanted and we got so many comments after, from our guests saying that it was exactly us. We would love to give you some feedback which we have gone through below. The ceremony far exceeded our expectations. When you wrote up the ceremony we couldn't believe that you got it absolutely perfect the first time. We were pretty particular with everything we chose for the wedding so it was such a pleasant surprise that you understood what we wanted straight away and kept that in mind in creating our ceremony. It was lighthearted, heart felt and so much like us. We wanted the ceremony to express how we felt about each other without being too touchy-feely and we feel that it did exactly that. The most memorable part was the story about how we met - it was lighthearted and funny and it was exactly what we wanted to express about each other. We also loved the giving away where the guests were asked to say 'we are' which we felt included everyone in our ceremony. We had many guests comment on how much the ceremony felt like us and that it was perfect! Many guests said that the length of the ceremony was also great because they were engaged the whole time. We felt completely informed and supported through the whole process. The options for personalising the ceremony were really helpful and made the whole process so easy. It was great that you had so many different options so that we could make it really us. You just made everything easy and it was easily the most enjoyable part in the preparation for the wedding. We think that the service you provided was fantastic - we felt comfortable with you from the first moment we met you and you were very approachable whenever we had questions. You were an absolute delight to work with! Thanks so much again Simone, we are so grateful for the support you provided and for the fantastic ceremony you did for us!
Cheers, (Jasmine and Daniel.)

Hi Simone, Thanks SOOOOOOOO much for everything you did for us! We absolutely loved the ceremony! It exceeded our expectations & was full of love, which is everything we wanted. All of our guests loved it, & commented on how meaningful and beautiful it was. You went above and beyond Simone and we truly appreciate everything you did!!! (Penny & Jarrod.)

Dear Simone, On behalf of myself and Anthony we would once again like to thank you for the service you provided during a very important time in our lives. The service you provided us before, during and after our wedding ceremony was first class! You surpassed our expectations and we are eternally grateful to you. The ceremony itself was beautifully presented and personal which both our guests and ourselves thoroughly enjoyed. The feedback we received from our guests was unbelievable. As most of our guests come from a Catholic background, most had not experienced a celebrant ceremony before and they really enjoyed it. Our guests loved how short yet personal the ceremony was compared to the usual church wedding. It really gave our guests an understanding of the love and life myself and Anthony share. The most memorable part of the ceremony was the moment that I came down the aisle and the look on Anthony’s face. We loved the way you greeted our guests and made them feel so welcome and special to us. A lot of our guests mentioned this to us on the night of the wedding. To be completely honest there is not a thing I would request that you change about the way that you conduct yourself, before, after and during the ceremony. From the moment we first met I could tell how excited you were about being a celebrant and how you really loved meeting new couples and hearing their stories. I always felt that you were interested in what myself and Anthony had to say and took on our feedback to make the ceremony our own. I have already recommended your services to two of my friends who will be getting married next year so you should be hearing from them shortly.
I guess at the end of the day we just want to thank you for everything and wish you all the best. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Kind Regards, (Amanda and Anthony)

Hi Simone, Many thanks to you. It was a lovely ceremony, short, sweet and real. Just how we wanted it. Our family and friends agreed that it was perfect for us. I think involving our loved ones in the ceremony enhanced their enjoyment of the event and you communicated our feelings beautifully, creating a memorable moment for all. Your services are faultless. You took care of the formalities, letting us take care of the party. Great work Simone, thank you, and we most certainly recommend you. (Susie & Dallas)

Hi Simone, Thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony. It was perfect- relaxed and informal, but personal and heartfelt, exactly as we'd hoped it would be. Our guests commented on how the ceremony very much reflected us as a couple, you clearly have a natural insight and an ability to understand people.  Anyway, thanks again for being so great, we loved working with you and you really made our day wonderful. All the best, (Vicky & Guy)

Dear Simone, We are so happy with how our wedding day turned out. The ceremony was perfect – you knew what we wanted and your easy-going approach and ability to have a laugh (and keep Ro entertained) was icing on the cake. Thank you once again.  xxx (Jacqui and Rohan)

Hey Simone, Thank you so much for the service it was beautiful. Everyone loved it and thought it was modern and honest. I will definitely recommend you to my family and friends, I have already given your details to a few girls who are intending on being engaged soon. Thank - you again so much for everything!! It was amazing. (Kira & Nathan)

When choosing a celebrant to conduct our ceremony, it was really important to me that he or she understood who Matt and I were as a couple, and as a person, was someone that we would normally make friends with, and enjoy the company of. Simone, from the first day we met you, both Matt and I knew you were the right person to marry us, you presented yourself as a relaxed and caring person who listened to who we are as a couple and could write a ceremony to reflect us as a couple capturing all our guests emotions in a short space of time. On the day we all listened and smiled as we reflected on our story, we laughed and felt a sense of warmth as you helped remind our guests how important they are in our lives, and held back an emotional tear as Dakota received her story so far in a Pandora. At all times communication was great, pricing was very reasonable and nothing was too difficult for you, even the travel out to Tangled Maze for the wedding rehearsal. Your flexibility with times was also very helpful due to the fact of both of us working. Simone, you stepped into our life as a stranger; through your understanding and acceptance of Matt and I, as a couple, and delivery of our wedding ceremony, we have embraced you as part of our story and look forward to meeting up again in the future. We will highly recommend you to anyone planning to marry wanting a personalised service, from somebody who genuinely cares and a very enjoyable wedding day without any fuss (for the ceremony at least). (Tania & Matt)

Simone, thanks so much for respecting our wishes and conducting the ceremony exactly as we discussed. It was beautiful - short, intimate, full of love and joy. Exactly how I wanted it. You didn't even mind that it was raining on us a bit, and conducted the ceremony gracefully in spite of it. The invitation for us to kiss as a wedded couple gave me happy goosebumps, no matter how traditional, it is still such a special moment! We were told by many that it was the best wedding they'd been to, partly because it was so succinct, but also because it was conducted with such obvious joy. (Jana & Shane)

Hi Simone, Just wanted to say what a wonderful job you did on our wedding day. You made the wedding so easy, as your website said; simple & relaxed.Thank you very much for being what we asked for & what your advertising said you were about. (Sue and Graham)

Hi Simone, Grant & I would both like to thank you so very much for everything yesterday, was such an amazing day! (Renee & Grant)

Dear Simone, Thank you for the very lovely ceremony you did for us. We were both very impressed - you did an excellent & met our every expectation. Your approach was so friendly & inviting throughout the entire wedding process. All of our guests commented on the ceremony and thought it was just beautiful. We mostly enjoyed the fact that our guests got the opportunity to bless our rings before we exchanged them. Many of our guests commented on this. I would definitely recommend you to our family and friends. We felt so happy & honoured to have you as our celebrant & to share our wedding with us. Thank you so very much from the both of us. Sincerely, (Melissa & Damien)

Hey Simone, You are definitely on our to do list for a thank you card and some pics.You were amazing and we have talked about it and we are both so so glad we chose you to be our celebrant. Awesome job and you’re a fantastic person.Thanks again, (Karl & Wendy)

Hi Simone, Thanks again for Saturday and everything else. Had an absolute ball and everything was as per my vision. We have had a number of people say that it was the best wedding they have been to, which is so amazing to hear!! (Rachel & Brooksy)

We were very fortunate to engage Simone as the celebrant for our recent wedding 4th July 2015. Simone met with us twice and asked exactly the right questions to enable her to create what turned out to be an amazing wedding service with some well-placed humour and the right amount of love and sentimental stuff. Simone exceeded all expectations by making the service very special for both of us. All present at our small but special wedding stated that she did a great job expressing what we meant to each other without going over the top with emotion and gushy stuff. We will always treasure the specially tailored service that Simone provided and would absolutely recommend her to anyone wishing to engage a civil celebrant for their special day. What a wonderful ceremony she provided - thank you so much. With love, (Rob & Robyn)

Hi Simone, The ceremony you provided exceeded our expectations. Mark and I both think you captured us really well and it was a perfect representation of our relationship. The way you delivered the ceremony was fun and light, which is what we wanted. Our guests thought the ceremony was lovely and not too dragged out. We had lots of comments about how you seemed really down to earth. Thank you soooo much for sharing our day with us. (Alice & Mark)

Hi Simone, Thank you, the ceremony was exactly what we wanted, relaxed and intimate. The highlights of the ceremony were saying " I do " and exchanging our own vows. Our guests commented on what a great job you did, found you to be extremely well spoken & lovely natured. We would definitely recommend you for future weddings. Hope you’re well. (Kate & Troy)

Hi Simone, Matt and I would like to thank you so much. Throughout the whole process you have been professional yet so friendly and have made us both feel so comfortable. I was very impressed with the ceremony structure and script you put together for us. I loved the way you shared our story with all our guests, it was really beautiful. I also loved our vows of course and I thought it was extra funny that I had some issues getting Matt’s ring on! It added some humour to the ceremony which is always nice. Our guests were really blown away with the whole ceremony. Most of our guests are used to traditional church weddings so it was something different for them. Matt and I would definitely recommended you to friends and family, you were fantastic Simone. Once again thank you for everything. Kind regards, (Alyce and Matt)

Dear Simone, We would just like to give you an ENORMOUS!! THANK YOU!! for sharing our wedding day with us and for being such an integral part of making it happen. Your support, advice and guidance helped to complete it and make it the truly wonderful day it was. Simone, you were fabulous through the whole process and we feel very grateful to have found you to lead us through, write our ceremony and create our day with us. Our guest LOVED!! the ceremony! We had such positive feedback from so many people. They liked how personal and relaxed it was, seeing us together as a family so happy and commented on how the ceremony really reflected us as a couple. It has been a pleasure working with you Simone and we hope you continue to complete other lucky couples wedding days as fabulously as you did our’s. Thank you again Simone. Best Wishes, (Sue & Grant)

Our wedding ceremony was the most beautiful day of our lives, everyone was raving about how sweet & sincere it was. Simone you did an amazing job capturing the love and magic in our relationship in your readings. You were encouraging & supportive especially for poor Craig who was so nervous. He honestly doesn't know what he would have done without you standing there beside him while he waited for me to arrive! From the day we met you, you were professional and precise giving us all the best advice and information we needed with crossing the t's & dotting the i's to ensure everything was perfect. The most beautiful part of our ceremony was how you worked with us to weave in a part for my 5 year old son (as we are a blended family) making him feel so special & important! Many of our friends are engaged and I would recommend you to all of them for their special days. Once again Thank you so much for making the most important day of our lives so touching, we will never forget it. (Jess & Craig)

Dear Simone, We can write nothing but praises for you and the wonderful service you provided. You are a gun young lady and we had a fantastic day. The ceremony was terrific, very light hearted and humorous but professional in every way. Everyone loved the ceremony with many saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. It was a sterling effort by you, helping us along the way with what to do. We would most definitely recommend Big Love to anyone we know thinking of taking the big plunge. You did a great job young lady, we had a ball and hope you did the same. Take care out there, (Ian & Megan)

Dear Simone, I can't thank you enough for the amazing ceremony. It was one of a kind. I will be talking about it in years to come! I will definitely recommend you to future couples. You did a great job of putting everything together, it was perfect! My guests were talking all night about how personalised & intimate our ceremony was. Thank you again!! (Tegan & Sean)

Good afternoon Simone, Thank you so much from both Kayla & myself, we had an amazing day & you made it very personal & special for us. The ceremony was perfect, just what we wanted. It was relaxing & enjoyable. The most memorable part was the story of us that you put together. Our guests loved the ceremony. We would most definitely recommend you to anyone who is planning on getting married. (Kayla & Heath)

Thanks so much to you Simone - Perfect! We had a wonderful day and everything was just as we wished. So many people commented to us on how great you were and so well suited to us. We wish we had known you when we got married! Your draft of the naming ceremony was great and your willingness to take input from us, and embrace the flavour of the day we wanted, was great. The perfect measure of introspection, warmth and humour. The wishing stone was a lovely touch and something we had not thought of. Ginger’s godfather gave her a beautiful box that can hold it nicely. Thanks so much - don't change a thing! It is very refreshing to find a celebrant that is not gushy and will happily embrace some humour! We will definitely recommend you to others! All the best, Siobhan, Chris, Ruby and Ginger (Naming Ceremony)

Dear Simone, Mum & Dad had a ball! Once they got over the shock of everything, they didn’t want to go home! They’re still talking about it, posting photos on facebook & sent copies of videos to relatives overseas. The surprise ceremony & the celebration of their 60 years of marriage together was for them. Thank you, all of the family praised the wonderful job you did, as did all of the friends who attended. I couldn’t recommend you more highly. I was impressed with you from the first time I saw you in action at David & Angie’s place. Kind regards, Barb, on behalf of parents. (Surprise Renewal Of Vows Ceremony for 60th Wedding Anniversary.)
