What My Clients Are Saying
Chris has an amazing personality and made us feel so comfortable from the get go. He explained the whole process thoroughly and was always prompt with correspondence. When you meet Chris you automatically sense his passion and that he really enjoys the important role of a celebrant . My partner and I just want to thank Chris for making our Special day that extra special.
Chris was wonderful as our celebrant under very trying circumstances for my family, (we had to marry quickly due to a sick family member). Chris was most accommodating, professional, understanding & really listen to both of us on what we wanted to include in the ceremony. We would highly recommend Chris & look forward to seeing Chris again in the future. Jackie & Mat
Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with! He listened to our my requests and tailored our ceremony perfectly. He was really responsive and prompt, and such a lovely person to have at our wedding. I can’t recommend him highly enough! Thanks Chris
From the moment I met Chris I knew he would be the perfect person to officiate our wedding! He was instantly warm, approachable, funny and beyond accommodating to every (changing) need that we had. Chris went above and beyond to make sure that our ceremony was everything we dreamed of and made the planning and organising super smooth. So much so that we even asked him to MC our lunch time reception (yes – we had a COVID wedding) and he was brilliant as an MC too! He made sure everything ran on time, assisted us to know where we should be and what was coming up and all of our guests enjoyed his humour too. Chris is a fantastic celebrant & a wonderful MC and we really appreciated all that he did to help us create wonderful memories that will last a life time!
Chris made our day just perfect! From our first meeting Chris made us both totally at ease, he took care of all the necessary paperwork in advance of the big day and made it very simple and stress free we didn’t need to organise a thing! On our wedding day he firstly organised the guests then provided a beautiful service which matched our personalities filled with love, warmth and laughter. Every one commented on what a lovely man he was! Thank you Chris!
Chris was referred to us by a friend and within the minutes of our first meeting we knew that he would be the perfect celebrant for our day. Our brief was to keep things informal, relaxed and fun, not only did he tick all those boxes but he was also super hands on with set-up & organisation with our other suppliers in the lead up to and on the day – all we had to do was turn up! We had several of our guests comment on how good the ceremony was, which wouldn’t have been as perfect without Chris and his cool & calm approach. Thanks for making our day so special Chris!

Chris was an amazing celebrant who made our day what it was!! Chris was open, engaging and easy to communicate with from the beginning of the process. We enjoyed our time with Chris and by the time the day came around we felt confident that Chris could deliver the ceremony we wanted. Chris helped to guide us in the right direction but he also put our own personal stamp into the whole ceremony. We were delighted on the day to see how Chris presented the information he needed to with the details he had discovered about us and our relationship. We live streamed our ceremony and we had people from across the globe say how amazing Chris was as a celebrant. Thank you Chris, we can’t recommend you highly enough!!
Chris was absolutely amazing and having him part of our day was one of the best decisions we made! Leading up to the day, Chris made us feel comfortable and at ease, explaining the process so we knew what to expect and working with us when we needed help or suggestions. But it was on the wedding day itself, that made us love Chris that much more. He was able to bring our guests together with his charisma and was able to capture our love story so perfectly. He made our ceremony fun (which is what we had asked for) and made us both feel so comfortable. The day wouldn’t have been the same without him! Thank you Chris, for making our day the most perfect day ever!
