A small selection of the testimonials I've received from my clients ....
"Susan was our Celebrant for our wedding held at home in Glenhaven. We chose her as she was calm, organized and efficient, compassionate and spiritual and worked with us to make the ceremony personal and special to us. She even knew where to set up the ceremony so we could get the best lighting for the photographer.
We would highly recommend her as a Celebrant. She took away any stresses and nerves and we were also delighted with the ribbon bound copy of the marriage ceremony that we were given at the end of the day. It was a lovely momento of a perfect day."

"After meeting with several celebrants we felt distraught that many celebrants had the perceptions that marriage was just 'business'. When we met Susan we immediately felt at ease & felt that our wedding ceremony was in good hands! Every time we met with or spoke to Susan all our nerves disappeared, she is not only a great celebrant but made us feel very comfortable during the ceremony which really helped with the nerves!
Susan took a lot of time in helping us prepare for our special day & her services extended to not just the ceremony, she gave excellent advice & support all through out our wedding planning & preparations. We would definitely recommend Susan to any couple!"

"Last year I decided to surprise my wife Enrica on our 30th wedding anniversary by renewing our wedding vows, but had no idea how to go about it.
Through a chance conversation with a mutual friend, I found out that one of Sue's many talents is that she is a qualified civil wedding celebrant – problem solved!
Sue was fantastic, calmly coaching me - the increasingly nervous "groom" as the big day approached- through the whole process from choosing the date, prompting me to create the "Mike & Enrica story" that featured as the introduction to the vows, helping with selection of the readings and then personally organising the beautiful candle-lit "Balinese Hut" venue."
Most of all though, the warm, caring and thoughtful way that Sue conducted the ceremony made it a very special event that Enrica and I will remember for ever.
So if you're thinking of doing something similar, I suggest you contact Sue to see how she can help. I'm sure you won't be disappointed."
"We wanted our wedding to be low-key, intimate and romantic and, as it was a second wedding for both of us, inclusive of our children.
Sue listened to our needs, then designed and delivered a personalised ceremony which incorporated the traditional and mandatory legal aspects of the service with music, readings and poetry that held special meaning for us both. She made sure that the children played a very big part in the occasion.
The necessary documentation was processed in a timely manner and Sue's experience, warm personality, efficiency and thorough knowledge of the legalities involved ensured the process was easy and stress-free from beginning to end.
We had the best wedding ever – the feedback was that it was like a "party of old friends". We can thoroughly and without hesitation recommend "Ceremonies with Soul" for your special day."

"Shane and I were looking for a celebrant and a friend of ours suggested Sue. We gave her a call, popped over to see her and had cup of tea.
Sue was fantastic. She has great energy and warmth, and we immediately felt relaxed and very much at home. She took us through all different kinds of readings, ceremonies and vows. She helped us choose our music for the ceremony and gave us advice on what to expect on the day.
Halfway through our ceremony when I thought I'd start bawling my eyes out, Sue had handkerchiefs ready for me! She's very prepared, super efficient and lovely to deal with. We have no hesitation in recommending Sue to other couples."
Shane & Nicci Gough
"Thank you so much for making Lillian's Naming Day so special.
It meant a lot that you took the time to sit down with us and get to know us as a family and understood how we wanted our ceremony to be.
The butterfly release was perfect and beyond our expectations.
We would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting a personal and friendly service."

"The Wedding went very smoothly and without a hitch. It was the ceremony we wanted in the location we wanted.
Sue spent time taking care of the main requirements to allow us to concentrate on the details that made this ceremony our own.
Nothing was too much trouble for Sue and her diligence and attention shone through on the day."
