Not only did she just do the ceremony but she had so much to do with the behind the scenes to make the whole day run smoothly as possible.

‘Cath was fantastic! From our initial meeting at the South Coast Wedding Fair we were set on booking Cath for our wedding. All the information that we needed in the lead up to the day was communicated clearly and efficiently. I loved that we had the opportunity to have a coffee catch up to go over the ceremony plan and allow Cath to get to know us as a couple, it meant that our ceremony became imitate and personalised.

The day before the wedding Cath was a breath of fresh air. I (bride) was stressed and nervous and Cath was the total opposite. She was calm, reassuring and direct. We had fun during the ceremony rehearsal; however, there was also a perfect degree of seriousness, in that everyone (boys in particular) knew exactly where they needed to be and what the wedding day would entail. She listened to all of our requests and nothing seemed to be a bother.

On the wedding day, again, Cath was excellent. She was punctual, coordinated and ensured that everything that we had discussed and practiced the day before went exactly to plan. The ceremony was perfect, we honestly couldn’t have been happier.

Cath was quick to file the necessary paperwork and we received our official marriage certificate within two weeks of our wedding.

A sincere thank you to Cath for all of her work, she was a big part of what made our day so special. We received so many compliments in regards to the ceremony, so a sincere thank you for all your work.’

It has now been 6 weeks since we said “I do”, and I wanted to share our immense gratitude with you…..

Your beautiful calm energy made for the relaxed, enjoyable ceremony that we’d hoped for. Thank you for all the prep that went into our vows and the effortless flow of the ceremony itself. Everyone has since commented on how lovely you are and what a great job you did that day – we couldn’t agree more!! 
Above all, we are very grateful for the fact that you were the one to officially make us HUSBAND & WIFE so that we could commit to one another in such a magic way…

The whole say was perfect leading up to our ceremony and a huge storm blew in about 30 minutes prior. If I didn’t have Cath there, I actually don’t know what would have happened. She organised everyone, organised the marquee and made sure it was still going to be as beautiful as I wanted it to be. She made everything easy and I have had so many people comment on her, saying how smooth the day went solely because of her! Cath, you are amazing at what you do. You made our ceremony better than I could’ve ever imagined it to be (storm and all). I couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you for being such a huge and perfect part of our special day.”

‘We met Cath at a wedding fair and as soon as we met, I knew she would be the perfect celebrant. She is such a warm, relatable person with a fabulous sense of humour. Right from the beginning, Cath was amazing with her correspondence and we always had complete faith in her running our ceremony. She was extremely helpful with our vows which I was nervous about! She lightened the ceremony practice and made the day run seamlessly. I would have no hesitation recommending Cath to anyone planning a wedding and am so glad that she was part of our special day.’
